5 Turkey Leftover Ideas + Giveaway

Last week we had the absolute best time having a friends turkey dinner. The idea of roasting a turkey mid-week seemed a bit bonkers, but it was great because we all went home with a tonne of leftovers! YEAY! The best part of having a turkey is the leftovers and incorporating them into your everyday meals is surprisingly easy. With there being 5 of us at Alberta Mama’s we thought it would be a fun idea to each take our leftovers and use them to create a “typical leftover meal,” something that would typically get made in our homes. It’s actually quite telling of each family’s personality.

Breastfeeding is hard- don’t be hard on yourself (+ Philips Avent Giveaway)

About two months into new motherhood I posted the following to my Facebook;

“Nothing gives you empathy for the modern dairy cow like hooking yourself up to the double breast pump”.

Breastfeeding and pumping CONSUMED my life for Nova’s first six months on this planet. Before I go on – I am going to talk quite a bit about nursing and pumping, but I acknowledge that this is not the road for every mom and baby, and at the end of the day I have written this before – but FED IS BEST. However, I do wear my breastfeeding and pumping hours as a badge of honour. It was hard, painful sometimes, challenging, but also rewarding, connective, and an experience like none other.

Win tickets to celebrate our 1 year anniversay with Alberta Mamas in Edmonton this Saturday

You guys,  we’ve officially passed our one year of Alberta Mamas and boy has it been a fun ride so far!

This past year has provided us with so many great opportunities to work with some amazing companies, we’ve been on the radio and on tv, explored Alberta through many road trips and camping, and so much more.

We’ve also had some AHMAZING contributors here at Alberta Mamas and know that we wouldn’t be where we are because of them! And really that’s why we started this blog, to begin with, to give Alberta parents a place to have a voice! And boy are there lot’s of great voices!

We’re celebrating 1 year!

What fun would celebrating being a year old be without a party?! This Saturday we’re hosting an invite-only birthday party and want to give away some tickets for you to come and celebrate with us too!

  • When: Saturday night, June 9th
  • Where: Downtown Edmonton

So how do you enter?

It’s really easy! Tell us your favourite blog post that you’ve read on Alberta Mamas for a chance to win a pair of tickets. Tickets include a glass of bubbly, snacks, and a chance to get out of the house and party with some great people. The winner will be picked this Thursday!

Super fun kids camps with Metro Continuing Education

If your kids are anything like mine, they’re very particular about the types of camps they attend summer. We don’t do a lot of camps during the summer because being bored is important for kids (as well as being very annoying for mom and dad), and the costs of camps can really add up (especially with three kids). The camps we sign the kids up for have to be special in that they’re learning a skill or improving on a skill set they have. It’s a lot of money to send kids to a camp so it’s important to us to make sure that the camp is a high quality.  As a parent I get excited when my kids get excited about camps and here’s a couple that we’re excited about from Metro Continuing Education in Edmonton.

We’re excited to be giving away a one week camp up to $400 for one lucky winner! Contest rules are below, but here are some of our favourite camps at Metro Continuing Education to get you thinking of what class you’d like to win! * Contest is now closed*

Learn to Bike this Summer with Pedalheads! (+ Giveaway)

Biking camps in Alberta

If you are looking for a day camp idea in Edmonton, St. Albert or Calgary we seriously suggest that you take a look at Pedalheads! Whether your child is just learning how to ditch the training wheels or you need a fun activity for your child(ren) so that you can ALL have a break this summer- this is it!

I’m speaking from experience here, my son tried Pedalheads for the first time last year and he went from not being able to even pedal a bike with training wheels (he had spent 2 years prior on a balance bike) to riding a 2 wheeler sans training wheels in less than 2 classes! He hasn’t slowed down since, and my husband and I get to enjoy the fun part- riding as a family instead of managing the tears and fear.
