Win a Baby Gift Pack ARV $85 {Canada} #PGMom

P&G wanted to help some bloggers surprise new and expectant moms with a baby gift pack. They called it the “Ding Dong Diaper Ditch” and provided us each with a bundle that included Pampers Swaddlers Diapers (size 1) and Pampers Sensitive Wipes, Ivory Snow Liquid detergent, a copy of “Caring for Kids: The Complete Guide to Children’s Health” and a Canada onesie. My sister-in-law is expecting a baby and we thought it would be fun to leave the package for her. I added a couple of little extras that I had set aside for her, and my husband took...

Side Dish Recipe: Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Everyone has their comfort foods, and scalloped potatoes are definitely one of mine. I love them because they are relatively easy to make, they’re filling and delicious, and there are so many ways to make them. Since they are something my kids will eat, I take advantage of the opportunity to sneak in a little extra nutrition with a cauliflower puree, and I use Dairy Oh! milk so that they are getting added DHA as well!

CAA’s Annual Medical Insurance Plans Keep You Covered

Traveling is fun, but it requires a lot of planning. Booking flights, making hotel reservations, planning your itinerary, and packing the bags are always on the ‘to do’ list. Ensuring that you have the right insurance for your trip is just as important as each of those tasks. As a Canadian, I don’t always think about the cost of health care and what would happen if someone in my family had an accident or became ill while we were away. I’m embarrassed to say I have even traveled to the States without getting the proper travel medical insurance plan. Since I don’t want to find myself in a medical and financial emergency while traveling, I am really happy to learn that CAA offers medical insurance annual plans that provide easy and immediate access to coverage. Annual plans let you buy a package of fifteen or thirty days to use whenever you please. That way, rather than buying coverage just for the days you know you are traveling, you can buy a package of days that you can use year-round on sporadic trips. Now a quick shopping trip across the border or a last minute business trip is already taken care of in terms of medical coverage. You can just pack a bag, close your Garaga Garage Door, and be on your way! Annual Emergency Medical Plans – 15 and...
