A couple of weeks ago I came across a contest titled “Benadryl – Canada’s Most Prepared Mom Contest”.  I knew I had to enter it.  I normally don’t enter contests that require people to vote but this one called out to me.  So, I wrote up my 250 words or less entry, hit submit and moved on.

A few days ago I received an email from the lovely folks over at UrbanMoms letting me know that I had been chosen as one of the five finalists.  I was thrilled! So here I am now and I need your help!

The prize for the Benadryl Canada’s Most Prepared Mom Contest is a $10,000 travel voucher.  I don’t need to tell you how awesome that would be!

I’m not going to give you a big sob story here about how much my family needs this.  You already know because you are just like me. You know how much effort goes into raising children, maintaining relationships, working (either as a full time parent or at another job), running a household, etc. – and doing all of this while trying to balance the checkbook.  Being able to win this and give my family a vacation to remember would mean the world to me!!

So, here’s the skinny – voting is quick and painless.  Just follow the link, give my story a read (Shayna) and if you like it just vote.  You can vote once a day, starting today until Friday.

UPDATE – voting has been closed because of some “bugs”.  The contest will start again on Monday July 30th.

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. But Bring on the Tomatoes.

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. But Bring on the Tomatoes.

This is a guest post written by my multi-talented friend Jessica.  Jessica is a home maker extraordinaire (among many other talents) and her amazing garden makes me green with envy.  Jessica, her almost equally awesome husband and their two beautiful  young children reside in “Friendly Manitoba”

My four-year-old daughter went to visit my mom last week and helped her plant some annuals in the front flower bed. She watched as her grandmother pulled pansies from their plastic pots, mounded the dirt around their tender roots, and watered them deeply. Then, she asked a question that made my mom burst into laughter: “Oma, why are you planting things you can’t eat?” (more…)

  1. I also have a black thumb when it comes to plants but love my garden. The sense of satisfaction I get out of providing for my family, neighbours and the local food bank is priceless. I would have no idea how much food (in weight) we produced but the year I planted zucchini it might have been a ton. Haven't been able to look at it since. Lovely pictures.

    Beautiful! I wish I was gardeny.

  3. I have the opposite of a green thumb. and the opposite of that kind of space in my yard. I dare to dream.

    • I don't have as much garden space as I would like to either anymore. I use to have a huge garden space at my last house but not so much anymore 🙁
