I was also delighted by some figure skaters that were not Canadian. American Ashley Wagner was so beautiful to watch. She was very graceful in her movements.

Sinead Kerr & John Kerr are the British champions. They were exceptional and the skating mixed with the music was incredibly powerful. I could definitely see why they are champions.

But you know what?! I went with all the intention of screaming the loudest for Kurt Browning.
For his whole career I have been a fan. So to have the opportunity to watch him skate, let alone skate to "Singin' In The Rain", (which I got to see him perform twice in a row!), I was in awe. Here is a little teaser video for you all.



I also had my heart stolen during the last olympics. Remember, Canadian olympian Joannie Rochette lost her mom. When she performed her routine during the olympics, I cried. Oh, how I cried. And to see her last night, looking like an angel, I had to choke back the emotion.
Her mom is definitely looking down on her very proudly.

That brings me to the sponsors from last night. Investors Group, Lindt and World Vision.
As these skaters have wonderful families and sponsors to help them on their journey to competitions and shows, there are places like World Vision that help those who don't have that support that every child needs.  A commercial was played at intermission, and I couldn't help but cry. Sad to think of what we take for granted, and all over there are children who need, even just a nudge of love and emotional support. I was able to give a small donation after the show, but it's not enough. I hope you reading may find time or money to give too.

And now to close, I want to thank Jergens for the most amazing experience a lady could ask for. I have memories that will never be replaced, and a swipe off my bucket list. Also a huge thanks for the goodies that were handed out! You're the best!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
