It is SO cold right now! I mean, it's really, really, really cold outside. When the radio announcer calmly announces that with windchill it's -50C, you know that it's dangerously cold. Thankfully I'm a knitter. Yesterday I wore my Tilted Duster that was perfect for keeping me warm. I have options of scarfs and wool sweaters. No worries about cooking in them like our Californian friends would. I have been wiling away the cold evening hours (knitting group was even cancelled last night due to the cold and we're pretty hard core!) on Bloggy Giveaways. I am so excited about everyone's generosity and have entered as many contests that will allow Canadians in. I even have my own contest just for Canadians that you should enter if you haven't already. However, in the spirit of building cross border relations, I am viewing myself as a bit of an ambassador of good will (note to my family: stop laughing!). I am going to run another contest for both Canadians and Americans.
- The Canadians have to say their favorite part of the States and a place that they'd love to visit in the States.
- The Americans have to say their favorite part about Canada and a place that they'd love to visit. If you are an American who has never wanted to visit here... you should. It truly warms up and we have some of the best sightseeing here.
- Enter before Saturday, February 2nd at 7:00 am MT. My mom, Bargainista, will be visiting me this weekend and will draw names from a big mixing bowl (trust me, this is as techie as I want to be on the weekend!)
I will pick randomly out of the best responses and they will be the proud owner of hand knit Baby Uggs. I'll do them in the 3-6 month or 9-12 month size... whichever one you want. Ok go! Come back later on and I'll start posting about some of my favorite Canadian haunts and American shopping destinations and loves as well in the next few days!
This contest is now closed... Thanks to all of you for entering. Picesco is the lucky winner unless she doesn't respond. Thank you for all saying beautiful things about my country. You've made me want to fall in love with Canada all over again! Please continue to come back and build my self esteen by seeing my hit counter go up!
