New Addition to Our Family

I am very excited to share some great news! We have a new addition to our family. This has been something D and I have been talking about for awhile. We have seen a few before but passed them up as we were not sure we were ready for another just yet. So what did we add to our family? A beautiful kitten!

Last week a lady I support at work decided to take a kitten off another lady in the buildings hands as her daughter was allergic to kittens. Only to find out that the ladies roommate does not like kittens and the first lady I support is allergic also to cats and birds. Then the talk started as where and what to do with this adorable black kitten.

Question was who can take the kitten and give it a good home? I was nominated as the ladies I support know how much we care for our Marty. They ask me almost daily how he is and what he has been up to. This idea was one I thought I should think about over night. I figured D would be good with it but at the same time I wanted to just talk it over. My supervisor even suggest myself to adopt this kitty.

By the end of the night, here I was bringing a new black 7 week old kitten with me for an hour drive home. I put her in a cat carrier but she lasted maybe 5 minutes into the trip before getting upset. I opened the cage and she hoped on my lap where she laid the whole ride home. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She is also very playful which at times isn't what you want, like when you are trying to sleep. Over all I think we got a beautiful and affectionate kitty. Her name is Lily and she is pure black with about 10 white furs under her belly.

Now for a few pictures of our new girl!

Our Marty man is taking his new friend very well. Lily follows Marty around everywhere he goes and snuggles in when they sleep. They also play and eat together. The first night we were sort of afraid Lily wasn't going to adjust as she met Marty at 4 am and started to growl and put up her back, now they are great.

Back to School with GoGo Bags Review & Giveaway!

One big source of litter during the school year are kids lunches. Everything from the sandwich bags to individually wrapped snacks. Some schools also have a policy for no garbage lunch. This really makes us think of ways to pack lunches without waste. If not I know you will receive a very yucky lunch bag if you send in yogurt/puddings etc.

A great way to reduce waste are containers and reusable lunch/snack bags. Last year my son went with reusable containers. This was a bit of a challenge as the kids need to be able to open their own lunch without help. We played around with containers at home and in store to see which ones P could do on his own.

Just recently I have been introduced to a great reusable product to send in kids lunch. They are reusable snack and sandwich bags along with a bag for cutlery. GoGo Bags are Canadian Made by an everyday Mom, who like all of us want a safe way to store her children's food.

The bags are made of 100% cotton and are washer and dryer (low) safe. The insides are also made from 100% cotton and is safe for food. The feature a fold over closure which make the bags long lasting.
Freshness? Yes, these little baggies keep all kinds of food fresh from sandwiches, apples slices to even crackers. Sandwiches stay fresh not soggy and do not dry out. Fruits and veggies stay fresh up to 2 days with crackers and nuts up to 5 days! I am excited to try them out with a new peanut-free trail mix snack (post on its way!)

Ease of Use? Very easy, they are fold over which help even the smallest toddler be able to get into their snack bags. Great to send with kids that have a hard time with containers. Also I love that they are not bulky, they will not take up so much room in your kids lunch bag. The bags can be machine washed and dried in the dryer on low heat. If you are not doing a load of laundry that day you can hand wash and hang to dry. They are very easy to wash. I would likely suggest a couple sets.

Fun Fact: Using only one reusable bag potentially can eliminate the waste of an average of 1000 plastic bags and can save you more than $40 in its lifetime. They make seem expensive at first but if you think about the waste and how much plastic sandwich bags are, they are actually not bad price. They are Eco-friendly and safe for your family. 

Buy it: You can order GoGo bags through their website, you can also email Anahita for custom orders if you would like a logo or a bigger size.

Connect with GoGo Bags on Twitter and Facebook

Our thoughts: I am very excited to send my kids to school with GoGo Bags. I love anything Eco-friendly, safe and convenient. These bags after inspection and use are very well made. The stitching holds great and the thickness was more than I expected. I love that they are made by a mother/daughter duo and are Canadian made! The are very easy to clean, I have thrown them in the wash and have also washed them by hand when doing my dishes. I find it more convenient by hand as I don't wash laundry every day. I also love the patterns, they are fun and bright.

Win it:

Spring Cleaning Came Early

I will admit my closet should have been cleaned out a few year ago, as I started to pull out stuff and found a bunch of baby blankets and a nursing pillow. We have a decent sized closet. Nothing huge but it is a small walk in, enough space to collect too much stuff.

I love clothes, not so much after having my children but I still love clothes. I haven't felt happy with my body for a few years. I have been back to work full time for just over 2 and 1/2 years and my goal was to lose 25lbs. Not that I was much over weight, about 10-15 lbs but for myself, I like to weigh 120-125lbs. It has been a long struggle as I could never find the time or energy to workout more than walking or taking the stairs at work. With that in mind I made sure that I was eating as healthy as I could (I do not get to choose the food I eat at work as I work in a Jewish/Kosher environment and as my one position I was never in one house more than a day or two in a row.) This has been a challenge but I have been doing not too bad with reaching for fruit or veggies instead of cookies or cereal bars (when I reach for cereal bars I opt for the higher in fibre etc).

I have had a hard time buying clothes in the last few years. I used to be one of those women that never worn jeans (maybe once a week or so), I would wear dress pants pretty much everyday and a nice dressy shirt. I wasn't one to spend a fortune on clothes, usually waiting for sales at Smart Set, Featherweathers or another similar clothing store. Now I have been wearing jeans, t-shirts and sweaters. I have been frustrated with as it has been hard to wear nice clothes as I have ruined a few to many things with cleaning or cooking at work.

With Fall approaching and my Social Media job heading in the direction I have been working so hard towards it is now time to be happy again with how I look. I am now done to 121lbs and feel a lot healthier. With a new me, comes a new wardrobe. Cleaning out the closet was the first thing that needed to be accomplished. That is a very scary task! After a few hours of getting lost in my closet, I now have 2 big garbage bags full of women's clothes to donate, a grocery bag of magazines and a big garbage bag of baby bedding, carrier and nursing pillow. I also have a grocery bag full to share with a friend if anything fits and she likes.

Now to figure out what is 2011 Fall/Winter must haves. After searching online at all the fashion sites and blogs I have come to conclusion that some must haves are Chunky Sweaters, Colored pants, plaids & polka dots, some places say Camo print and some say leopard, some have also said Tribal so I am a bit confused here. Colors this fall are - jade green, mustard yellow and rusty orange. I am not a fashion diva anymore, so I will play around with what I can find and have already. I am looking at keeping the new wardrobe budget at a reasonable price. I figure I will really work on getting interchangeable pieces.

I went to Reitmans and picked up two pairs of pants, one pair jean and the other an olive green color. Now I would like one or two pairs of black dressy pants and I should be good for pants. I still have a few pairs a jeans in good shape.

I have found a few places that I will be watching online for items that will be great for Fall/Winter. and Group The World, maybe even Mimi McQueen. I will also be checking out before purchasing online for coupon codes. I will let you know my new wardrobe as I work on it.

Marble Lake Lodge Review

In June my family and I took a nice weekend away at a cottage. The first real camping experience my children have had. This was also another fab find on a Daily Deals site. Two night stay during the week for $75 a value of $271! The catch? This coupon deal needed to be used in June and between Sunday to Thursday. Marble Lake Lodge is where we found a really good deal.

If you haven't heard of Marble Lake Lodge, it is located in Cloyne, Ontario not too far from Bon Echo provincial park. It took us a couple hours to get there but it was a very nice drive. We booked Cottage #6. This cabin can have up to six people staying. It is a two bedroom with a kitchen/livingroom and a bathroom with a shower. We had out stay from Sunday to Tuesday the 12-14 of June.

Of course our trip away would be a cold one! When we arrived at Marble Lake Lodge we were early for check in, so we took a look around the area. They have a children's play structure (this has seen better days and even had a sign play at your own risk), lots of camping sites and a nice little beach area. They have paddle boats you can take out for a tour, They only have a few but we were lucky during our stay that no one was interested in them at the same time as us. The cottage I had believed was on the water and it wasn't. It was up on the hill not far from the beach though. I would prefer one on the beach which would be cottage #4 or #5. This way the kids can play in the sand and you can start the dinner on the BBQ or get lunch started. The cottage itself was nice enough for a cottage getaway. Nothing fancy or very modern but your to be camping and enjoying the great outdoors, right! No cell service there, well a little just enough to get a tease for who emailed me but not enough to read anything. Again we are camping and well I was on holidays.

Of course it was rainy and cool as it was still the beginning of June. I was fine with it but D was almost ready to pack up after the first day. Men, eh? We enjoyed a nice camp fire the first night with s'mores, yummy. The kids loved it. We went out paddle boating, the kids were brave enough to enter the water. They played in the sand. We went to Bon Echo for a couple hours before it started to rain. They offer a pass to the park (with deposit) when you stay in the cottages or camp ground. We also watched some movies they have that can be rented free of charge.

One thing I didn't like about our cottage was the bathroom was outside attached to the porch, which had windows that didn't close. With our stay being rainy and we were right on the water, it was pretty cold going to the washroom or for a shower. Plus at night it was hard for the kids to go out to the washroom if need be as we locked the entrance door. Overall though I would go back but I would go in July or beginning of August for nicer weather and I would also ask for cottage #4 or #5.

Bonnechere Caves Review

This summer our family decided to do a few day trips to some more local areas and we decided Bonnechere Caves would be a neat place that the kids might enjoy. My husband, D and I decided P would love it as he is very much into rocks, caves and fun science things.

A quick background to Bonnechere Caves, located in the Ottawa Valley in Eganville, Ontario. Bonnechere Caves are under a hill of limestone, the geologists have said it was a tropical sea 500 million years ago. Stalactites, or rock icicles formed at the rate of one cubic inch in 150 years, hang from the ceiling and the handiwork of nature is enhanced by electric lights. There are tons of fossils that are embedded in the limestone walls. Entombed in the rock and preserved forever can be seen fossils of coral and sea creatures alive long before the age of the Dinosaurs.

The caves are open from May -Thanksgiving weekend. The price is as follows:
Adults  $16.00
Seniors (65 +)  $15.00
Youth (13-17 years)  $13.00
Children (4-12)  $12.00
Under 4  free

Our thoughts after visiting Bonnechere Caves- I am signed up with a handful of Daily Deal sites that send out emails everyday. One day a Daily Deal coupon came for Bonnechere Caves 2 can tour the caves for the price of 1 at $16.00. We packed a lunch and snack and headed to Eganville, Ontario. When we arrived we took a quick tour of the water and bridge just outside the cave area, then headed in to pay.
A was free as she is under 4. When you arrive the staff let you know when the next tour is starting, tours during the summer run every 20 minutes. We had only 10 minutes until the next tour and we were all hungry. Instead we decided to head to the picnic area and have lunch.

We headed over to the tour area after having our lunch. There you meet your tour guide and hear more about the caves history and the fossils that have been found in the caves. This usually takes about 20 minutes and the tour guide asks people to guess about the fossils and adds humor to the stories. We then head into the cave where every 3 or 4 feet you stop and the tour guide gives more of the story of the cave. You can even walk through a tiny cave inside but if you are taller than 5'5 you may not want to as it is very low and I have to bend way down to go through it with P.

It is cool and damp in the cave but very interesting if you like rocks and fossils. The downside? It isn't a long tour about 45 minutes to an hour and the cost is pretty high for what you get. D and I both feel that it is a one time kind of trip. Once you see that caves it is neat but not something you would do again and again.

A few photos of our trip to Bonnechere Caves:

Day Trips with Work

If you are newer to reading my blog you may not know that every evening Monday to Friday I support individuals with Intellectual Disabilities. I am a primary counselor to 4 out of the 8. We are two staff, one works days and I work evenings. We support these individuals with living everyday life in their own apartment. Each summer we brainstorm and decide on a 3 day 2 night vacation. This summer we decided to do this a little differently and do 3 days of day trips. This was to help with everyone getting to do something they could afford and that they had interest in. Here is what everyone decided on.

Papanack Zoo, Monte Cascade and Upper Canada Village. I will tell you right away we had a full crowd on the last day for Upper Canada Village.

Monday August 8th, both myself and the other staff (R) headed into work for 8am, packed a cooler, made sure we had sunscreen, money, map, and anything else we may need. Next we hurried around the apartment building to each person's apartment to make sure they were good to go or if they needed help with anything. (This is a normal thing we did for all three days).

8:45am - Let's head out and pick up one more guy that is coming with us and hit the road to Wendover, Ontario.

10:00am - Arrive at Papanack Zoo, everyone is very excited to see the animals. We saw lots of neat critters, Lemurs, Peacocks, Coyotes, Tigers, and even a black Jaguar. A few pictures and then I have a funny story about the Jaguar. hehe

If you have never been to a Zoo or to Papanack there is a lot of walking from one animal to another and we had a pretty hot day. When we approached the Jaguar he was in the back of his housing area. He came up to the front and laid down. A few minutes after he got up and paced back and forth turned around so his behind was facing all of us at the fence and lifted his tail! AHHH quick everyone move. Well three of our guys moved very fast but the other person, who is afraid of uneven ground - L (but he did a great job walking everywhere that day!) shuffled over. We thought everyone got out of the way until I turned and looked at L, I saw he got hit ALL down one leg!

I said - "oh no, you should have moved faster." trying not to laugh

He said - "I didn't get peed on!" he started laughing.

I replied - "look again!"

He looked down and looked back at me and we burst out laughing. L then replied "I did get PEED on!!"

The rest of the day and still now that has been a big conversation with everyone! I believe he may even be proud :)

Day 2 - Monte Cascade, We ended up with only 3 people going and it was a cloudy day. Of course the day we wouldn't have minded it being Super hot, it was overcast and also a cool breeze. Monte Cascade turned out to be a lot of fun and only cost each person $12.99! How can you go wrong as most water parks are over $25 a person.

Day 3 - Upper Canada Village, this was a FULL group for us and we ended up with a big van and our car to take everyone to Morrisburg, Ontario. If you haven't been here before but love to learn history this is a great place to learn what it would have been like to live in the 1860's, the daily life, the challenges etc. Tour the almost 60 acres of "village" and learn how they made wool, bread, logs, cheese curd (my fave - I learned a lot there) and much more. See demonstrations and talk with the village folks. We took a ride in a horse carriage around the village to see all the homes and farms. Also if you plan to go here check out my Attractions Ontario post for a coupon, Buy one Adult and get one Child free. The price is not cheap but everyone should experience Upper Canada Village at least once in their lifetime! This year marks 50 years they have been open!

Every night we enjoyed supper out at a local restaurant in Ottawa, all were very good - Nate's Deli Family Kitchen, Buffet Yang Ming, and Chances R.

Wait....Summer Isn't Gone Yet! {Coleman Giveaway!}

Now that we are into August and the nights are cooler, Summer isn't gone yet! I know, I know, walking through the mall and all you see are the Fall clothes that are out, another sign school is around the corner and with that comes Fall. We still have a couple more weeks of summer to go!

Why not enjoy them with camping, picnicking, swimming and being outdoors? We plan on doing just that. We still have a couple more weekends to enjoy our swimming and camping and Coleman has the right equipment that we will need for that time.

Want a place to chat with Coleman about their products? Join Coleman Canada's Facebook page and start talking. It is a great place to also talk about camping with other campers and swimmers. We love hearing about all the Coleman news there also!
Have you ever been camping and wanted to grab something out of the cooler at night. It's all about remember what the item feels like. Coleman has made seeing in the cooler at night so much easier with the Auto-on Cooler Light. This little light is powered by three AAA batteries and uses 37 Lumens to light up your space.

You can find these at Zellers, Sears and Canadian Tire $19.99 on sale this week at CT $13.99!
Another way Coleman can help light up the night is with their Mini Quad Lantern. This little light is very mighty! I love it.

This lantern features four little "pods" that are removable. The lantern can light up your night for 25 hours. Each pod lights for 12 hours. Please check out my review and how we enjoy it. Available at Canadian Tire $39.99.

My favourite summer item this year has been the Stearn Puddle Jumpers! They have been just what my kids needed to overcome that swimming fear and also put my mind at ease when the kids are swimming.

Available at Canadian Tire $29.99.

Bananagrams Review and Giveaway

A great way to get the kids unplugged is by getting the family together and having a game night. I have a lot of board games I love to play. I would say I love brain teasers the best for sure! My husband is pretty good at spelling, word type games so it can sometimes be unfair but I still love playing games with him.

I would like to introduce you to a great game for ALL ages,

Bananagrams is a exciting and fun word/anagram game. It reminds me of a scrabble type of game. This is an anagram game that will drive you bananas! The players race against each other to make a crossword grid and use all their letter tiles first. This game can be played alone or with many people playing along side each other.  It can also be played while waiting at a restaurant or anywhere that you can use a table top. A great game to get the kids thinking about words and not about what they are waiting for.
Workman Publishing publishes the Bananagrams books for on the go or just fun on paper. They also offer Calendars for more anagram fun! 

The recommended age for Bananagrams is 7-97 years old. This is a great game for anyone who likes word teasers, crosswords or spelling. Our friends at Thomas Allen & Son has sent us our vary own Bananagrams and a Bananagrams workbook.

I have "played" Bananagrams with my children, instead our game is all about making words together and learning how to spell. They are almost 4 and 5 years old. I have played Bananagrams a few times myself and I plan to challenge my husband to play with me soon enough. I can see this being a game that my children will love to play over and over again as they age.They already love just pulling out the tiles and spelling simple words they know.

Buy it: You can buy the Bananagrams for Kids book on Chapters or Amazon. You can also pick up the Bananagrams game on

Win: Thomas Allen & Son would like to offer Ten (10) lucky Canadian Coupon Mom readers their very own Bananagrams set. This set includes the Bananagrams Game in a banana pouch with 144 letter tiles, and also a Bananagrams for Kids book!

Mandatory Entry: Please tell who you would like to play Bananagrams with or would you give this as a gift? Please include your email address or twitter handle so you can be contacted if you win. Also please do the mandatory entry first before any the extra entries will count. Thanks!

ShesConnected Conference

There are many US blogger conferences throughout the year but not as many in Canada. ShesConnected is a Canadian conference for Women in Social Media. This is the second year for the conference that is by Invite only. 200 of Canada's Top Digitally Connected Women will be selected by ShesConnected to attend a day and a half conference at the end of September! ShesConnected will be covering the cost of the ticket for each women they select/invite!

These Women have been hand picked based on their social reach, power of their voice, and influence. This is not only on their blogs but on Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms. Each brings with them a great social reach, on average of 1000! This means if a brand connects with 1 women, she is able to connect with 1000 or more people. What a great way to get your brand out there.

Now for what I have been dying to tell everyone!
ShesConnected Conference 2011 - I'm Going!
I have been about to explode with joy since August 8th,2011 when I found out yes indeed Canadian Coupon Mom has been Officially invited to attend the 2nd Annual ShesConnected Conference for Social Media!

I am VERY excited and a bit nervous to attend my very first conference but I know all the women there are very kind and caring. First impressions are key and now is my time to make a great first impression. In the upcoming weeks I will be cleaning out my closet and making room for some fun conference outfits. Yikes, nothing conference like in my closet at the moment. I have 1 or 2 "Good" outfits and if I can be honest with you, the pants do not fit me anymore, they are too baggy.

Now with the ticket covered I would love to have some help with the rest of the fees that come along with attending such a wonderful conference. I am looking for a sponsor or two who would love to help me out with this and I will return the favor in Social Media for your brand :) If you are interested I have a sponsorship kit ready and would be happy to discuss with you and have your brand on Canadian Coupon Mom!
