When i first saw this fluffy bear from Mariuca 2nd Blogversary Contest, i got so excited. It was the most adorable fluffy brown bear i've ever seen! Maybe because he was wearing a cute "I Love Mariuca" tee and a mini blue muffler that simply stands for Wishing On A Star. There & then I make up my mind to join this contest. But I was a big fat procrastinator. I thought, "Why not i take my time & think up of a beautiful name for this fluffy bear?" Time flies when you are busy, I'd only realized I was over the deadline when Marzie announced the winner. Tho' I was devastated, I am happy that Roxy has won this fluffy Bear-iuca. Not wanting this sadness to have any space in my heart, I consoled myself by saying that i can still win this fluffy bear from MPG 2nd Bloversary Contest. When Bear-iuca visited AGP, i was so happy that it pushes my sadness out and replaced it with joy. Thank you for sharing the spirit of Bear-iuca with me, Roxy & Marzie! :)

And now, a day before my last chance to grab this fluffy bear home, here's my entry. I am gonna name this fluffy bear as 'bear-bear' and i hope to be able to win this for my second niece, Baby May. She is almost 8 months now and can utter a few of her own languages. She loves animals, I've seen her chasing (crawling) happily over Ariel. So, I am sure she's gonna love this bear-bear. :) Here's a snapshot of Baby May latest look. Aren't she adorable?

Fluffy Bear-iuca Visited AGP

The Spirit of Bear-iuca

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a powerful Genie Princess named Mariuca who was known throughout the land as the friendliest, most popular blogger in the blogosphere kingdom. Adored and admired by international visitors and commentators from around the world, the Genie Princess travels the blogosphere on her magical flying carpet, always looking for ways to share her good fortune with others.Over the past two years of blogging, Mariuca has met so many new people, from all walks of life and all over the world, each one bringing a little of their culture and lifestyle when they visit and comment on Mariuca’s two sites. So on her 2nd Blog Anniversary, Mariuca wanted to celebrate with all of her international blogosphere buddies by hosting a bear-naming contests at Wishing On A Falling Star and Mariuca’s Perfume Gallery and to pass her two lucky, cuddly teddy bears along to the winners who came up with the best names.On the opposite side of the world, from the moment Roxy (the prolific Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blogger) and her sweet daughters London and Maddie saw the teddy in his personalized t-shirt and blue muffler at Wishing On A Falling Star, they knew that he needed to come to live with their family in Mendham, NJ. The three New Jersey girls named him immediately and burst into a wonderful song for BEAR-iuca:

BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, amazing teddy cheer.BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, we’d love you to come live here!

Mariuca received 16 possible names for the Mariuca Teddy Bear, making it hard for the Genie Princess to choose just one…then Alakazam! A bolt of lightning delivered the perfect way to share BEAR-iuca’s good fortune to bloggers around the globe. While the soft, stuffed, cuddly BEAR-iuca is on his way to live with Roxy, London, Maddie and Rex in the Roxiticus Valley, the Spirit of BEAR-iuca is racing through the blogosphere to bring happiness, holiday cheer, and beary best wishes to everyone who welcomes him into their online home and passes along the BEAR-iuca good luck charm to ten friends.

Please play along with us by following a few important rules:
1. Add your site(s) to the list once you have received the Spirit of BEAR-iuca badge of teddy bear cheer.
2. Pass along the Spirit of BEAR-iuca and his cheery badge to as many people as you like.
3. Leave a comment HERE once you’ve passed on the Spirit of BEAR-iuca.
4. Once Roxy and the Genie Princess have visited your site to make sure your links are complete and proper, you will then be added to the Master List.
5. To ensure everyone receives equal link benefit, please UPDATE your list regularly!
