The Ultimate Blog Party has begun!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Click the link on the sidebar or the banner above to check out the Ultimate Blog Party! There are prizes and a chance to virtually meet bloggers from all over the place. It runs for a whole week, starting today, the 20th of March!

While you're here let me introduce myself. I'm a work-at-home wannabe-mom living in Canada with my DH and my DDog! When I say wannabe, we're TTC so hopefully I can join the mom club soon. Working at home is great - no commute! - but it is very distracting with all the great blogs out there to read! I really like meeting other women and making friends in the virtual world. I recently started this blog, mostly to provide a source for Canadian women, new parents in particular, to find bloggy giveaways that are open to Canadians. I hadn't come across such a thing in my wandering online so decided to start one. I hope you enjoy your visit here and find something interesting! And have fun at the UBP 2009!

If you're just discovering UBP, check out the prizes here! There is a separate list for prizes for International as well as a list for prizes for US and Canadian entrants. Some of the prizes I was most excited about unfortunately are on the US only list - hey sponsors, if you're reading, Canadians get excited about prizes too! We're not that far away!

Some of the party prizes and what my top picks would be if I win...
1. USC 35 - a Hotslings pouch-style baby sling and nursing cover combo.
2. USC 66 - $50.00 Gift Certificate to the online maternity and baby boutique, Madre Gear.
3. USC 11 - See Kai Run baby/toddler shoes

Beyond that, I also would be very happy to win (all USC) 3, 12, 26, 46 and 55, in no particular order!
