Love from Texas, Germany AND Canada...and the best day ever!!

Hey bloggyland! It has been too long since a Sunday post, but you better believe that today's is a very special one :)

Since July 17th is pretty much the best day ever, I've teamed up with For The Love of Blogs to host a giveaway in their Summer Giveaway Bash!!

Why today?! Well it just so happens to be little ol' me's birthday!! Yep, I am the big 1-6 today!! Wait, that isn't right....
Would pretty much give my first born for one of these sets today! (source)

Anyways, if you hopped over from FTLOB, welcome! If you like what you see, I would love for you to follow along with my journey as my husband and I enjoy the worldwide adventure hockey takes us on. 

For all your oldies but goodies, you too get a chance to win a special goodie bag. But if you haven't checked out FTLOB, you really need to do so. What a great resource and site for your blog!!
Now, what, pray tell, am I giving away!?! 

Why only the best Texas/Germany/Canada Goodie Bag ever. Look at that swag!!

I know, I spoil!
You could win...

From the Lone Star State:
- The coolest "Don't Mess With Texas" bumper sticker. Ever.
- Texas-shaped cookie cutter

Aus Deutschland:
- My last pack of sauer Glühwürmchen (sour gummy worms), sooo good
- And you might remember the Kaufman's Haut und Kinder Creme from here. It really is the best stuff from Germany!

From Canada, eh:

- What my husband refers to as the best 'Canada's favorite chocolate bar" Oh Henry!

Anyone can enter, I will ship anywhere. Yes, even ya'll waaaay across the ocean there :)

The rules are as follows (and this according to FTLOB, not me ;)):
