You know what *they* say….GO BIG OR GO HOME!

Well, we’re going big!! This is the launch of the Southern Alberta Giveaway Event 2012 and I couldn’t be more excited to be starting it in this way! You will be too!

Valentine’s is fast approaching, and I know many are trying to figure out what exactly they would like to do to celebrate. Well lucky for one winner, The Holiday Inn Express and Sugar Bakeshop have teamed up to help with THE most perfect prize!

“Romantic night for two in the Sugar Room at the Holiday Inn Express in Lethbridge. Β Package includes one night in a Jacuzzi Suite, Champagne, two complimentary bathrobes, and a freshly baked Red Velvet Cupcake Bouquet, courtesy of Sugar Bakeshop!”

must be redeemed between February 14, 2012 and February 17, 2012

I will be visiting The Holiday Inn Express this week to check out the Sugar Room {and take photos for you all} so I can appropriately brag about it {and express my envy}, but I did have a friend stay there for her wedding night and she said it’s *SOOOOO nice*. And with complimentary bathrobes, champagne {if you don’t drink an alternative will be provided}, and a most delicious dessert from Sugar Bakeshop! I mean – does it get any better than that???

    Thank you for running this Giveaway! Sounds like a lot of fun! My hubby & I have not been on any vacation/getaway in several years & we only went on vacation once. That time, we visited relatives. I’ve always wanted to visit the Alberta area (I’m in NY!). Looks absolutely gorgeous up there!
    As far as the baked goods from the Sugar Bakeshop, it was so hard to narrow it down to one flavor! I know hubby wouldn’t agree with my choice.

    There are way too many cupcake choices, my top favourites are: Chocolate with Strawberry Buttercream (but I think that strawberry cream cheese icing might be really yummy instead of buttercream), Lemon Cupcake, Peaches and Cream Cupcake, Coconut Cupcake, Rolo Cupcake, Skor Cupcake, Cherry Bomb Cupcake…

    I would like to get away with my man because we both have been through alot this past year but we are still kicking!!! Things are finally looking up! We both went through really bad break ups and found each other when I was looking to buy a house, his house to be specific.. a week later I got a text asking if i was .. “still interested in the place” and then he asked me out.. and we immediately fell in love! We since then have moved in together, experienced a loss together, moving on with our lives together.. what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right! Due to his work its hard to get out of the city to do things on the weekends, so winning this amazing prize would be a dream πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity!

    My Sweetie and I haven’t had a night away together in ages. Dealing with a job change, depression, and a few other issues has made a rough summer and fall for us. We could just use a fun night out together!!!

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! I’m glad to find a giveaway like this in Lethbridge!

    Same as everyone else, I would love this package! My fiance and I have been together for 8 years and we’re getting married this May. For the last few years we’ve been finishing up school and now planning a wedding, so the holidays and romantic weekends haven’t happened! It would be such a nice treat!

    As much as I love my kids, I’d love to win this package to just get away and have some alone time with my hubby. We try to schedule date nights but they always get cancelled and it’s been a loooong time since it was just the two of us relaxing.

    I would love to win this for my husband and I, not only because I love “sugar” and have ordered from Calgary because I love them so much! But for my husband and I, as we have not had any “us” getaways well….since our honeymoon which will be 10 years in November! Sometimes I am pretty sure we have forgotten what Romance is, and since we will be in Lethbridge during that time anyways, and will have a babysitter it would be so perfect. We arent going to be able to do any special for Valentines day this year as we are saving to take our little ones to Disneyland and that is more important than a day to celebrate us as we want to celebrate them everyday!

      Our 10th is in November too! Little getaways are so much fun πŸ™‚ Keep saving for Disneyland – our daughter saved for 2 years {pop bottles} before we finally took the plunge and it was awesome! I totally think saving the Valentine’s Day money for that trip is a worthwhile trade!

      Fingers crossed!

    A number of years ago I learned that a man I had recently began dating, and who had asked me out for a Valentine’s Day evening meal at a local restaurant, was planning to surprise me (a friend told me about it the evening before) with a fancy hotel room he’d booked, that had a jacuzzi tub etc. I wasn’t ready to engage in intimacy with him so I quickly phoned him asking him to cancel the room so the cost wouldn’t be incurred. He didn’t tell me he’d prefer to cancel our evening. On Valentine’s Day I spent a long time bathing, choosing my evening’s attire, applying my favourite scented products, cosmetics, fixing my hair etc. and then I waited on the living room’s sofa for him to arrive. He never did & I never heard from him again.
    This Valentine’s Day I’d love to celebrate by creating more pleasant holiday memories by feeling quite regal in a beautiful hotel room, soaking in a soothing jacuzzi tub, enjoying scumptious cupcakes & sipping a delicious beverage offering a heartfelt toast to genuinely loving relationships!

    My husband and I are in much need of a good date night. He is working over full time, I am in my MEd program and we have a two year old. My classes are three nights a week, he often works one day on a weekend and I have to do homework at least one day on the weekends. What this means is we NEVER see each other. It would be great to have an adult to adult evening to relax and reconnect.

    Thank you. Good luck everyone.

    What an AWESOME contest! Winning this would be perfect for my husband and I as I 1. Can’t do something this extravagant for my much deserving husband on my MatLeave budget, 2. i can’t leave my cute little baby for that long (but since it’s close to home it would be easy… ya I’m one of those moms haha) and 3. It’s our 1st valentine’s as husband and wife, as parents, AND its our 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY on February 19th!

    What would be better than winning a getaway with my Sweetheart??? Even better a Valentine’s getaway! As a Mommy and Daddy we certainly do not get any alone time especially away from the house!

    Hi

    Would like to nominate my mom and her husband.

    They have been married for a year, and moved in together. My mom’s husband has done so much for her, and has taken on not only my mom, but her father (who lived with her), my young brother and my other brother (after our father passed away last March)

    They have been through a lot, financially and emotionally. They both lost there jobs and have been struggling doing the odd job. If they could just have one night together, a nice get away, I know it would lift there spirits and know that good things can happen. They deserve it. πŸ™‚
