Growing Our Canadian Olympic Pride

Growing up, I watched a lot of the Winter Olympics, probably because my parents did as well. Being big hockey and curling fans, my parents were always tuned in. Mom and I loved watching the figure skating as well, and she still does. Sadly, I stopped watching the Olympics when I moved out and it stayed that way until Vancouver 2010, when I started watching some of the snowboarding events and then the whole family, including 6-month old Chelsea, sat around the TV with some snacks and watched Canada’s men take the gold.

Canada Flag

This year I plan on introducing Chelsea to more of the Winter Olympics in Sochi and hope to instil even more Canadian pride into her.  To help build your Team Canada pride, I have a great Olympic prize pack valued at over $100 to give to one lucky (Canadian) reader.

Win Olympic Team Canada GearYoplait is a proud sponsor of Team Canada and has provided this prize pack for me to give away.  Other bloggers are running similar giveaways, and while you can enter on each of our blogs, you can only win one prize pack – we want to spread the Team Canada love as much as we can. I will randomly select a winner on January 15, 2014.

To enter, simply leave me a comment below letting me know what your favourite Winter Olympic event is. For a bonus entry, follow me on Twitter and tweet the following (you can do this once daily, just make sure you come back and leave a comment to let me know you did):

Congrats Natalie!

If you’d like some new recipes to enjoy while you tune into the events in Sachi, visit the Life Made Delicious website for some fantastic recipes using Yoplait products, or simply enjoy it straight out of the container (or Tube). The Yoplait Source vanilla yogurt makes a great fruit dip as is, or with a sprinkle of added cinnamon.

Go Canada Go!
