Box Tops for Education Frustration!

If you have kids, you have seen the collection sheets that schools send home for Box Tops for Education. You put the tops on them and send them back. School gets .10 per top. Ladda Ladda. My issue is I clip these freaking things year round and normally just put them in a baggie and wait for school to start. But even before school starts, that baggie will be ripped and replaced several times! We are not easy on things in the Daigle household!So I decided instead of waiting for the sheets to come home I would print some off and fill them as I collected them. That way the kids could take the sheets the first day of school and we'd call it good. Think its easy to find basic printable sheets? NOPE! I got so angry at the file sharing and downloading the sites required that my daughter (9) just looked at me and said, "Just make your own instead of threatening to beat up the computer!" Out of the mouths of babes!

So I did just that! I made my own collection sheets. I like basic, plain and straight to the point so that's what the sheets are.
My design (leads to external site)
Pardon the scan lines. My scanner is kicking it so every scan looks kinda crappy. This is the 10. I made it Microsoft Office Starter so if I can do you can. Hopefully yours look better!

Almondina Biscuits/cookies Giveaway

I was sent the above packages of Almondina Biscuits/cookies for my honest review. 
I was not compensated in any other way and as always, all opinions are my own.

Here's the story!

Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, eight additional flavors have been introduced. All have almonds:
  • Original, with almonds and raisins
  • Choconut, crunchy chocolate-flavored
  • Cinnaroma, with cinnamon
  • Gingerspice, with chunks of diced ginger
  • AlmonDuo, with roasted almonds and pistachios
  • Anniversary, with anise
  • BranTreats, made with oat bran
  • Sesame, with flavorful sesame seeds
  • Chocolate Dipped, the Original dipped in semisweet chocolate (seasonally
    available—in stores now or online)
My absolute favorite is the Choconut! The kids liked the Gingerspice and hubby well he didnt like any of the ones he tried. He likes his bisquits and cookies softer.  These would go super with tea, coffee or milk! They go super with vanilla ice cream as a topping. (crumbled).
And yes, they are Certified Kosher (pareve) by Orthodox Union.
Now the good part! Almondina is going to send the winner of this giveaway the same shipment they sent me! The winner will get 8 packages of Almondina Bisqcuits/cookies! YUMM!!! 
Almondina will ship to the winner! 
Winner has 48 hours to reply to the winning email or another winner will be chosen!
Good luck!!!!

Nail Cones Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
Watch this short video, made by the Nail Cones creator, to see exactly how they work!

 I adore these! They are so easy even my 9 yo can use them. I have used a variation of thing to try to get the best polish, from tape to even a cut up shipping label! Yes I know, I'm pathetic. But I have short nails and I always have an issue with polish getting on my skin. These were easy to apply and remove and they didn't take any polish off when I took them off either. This would be the perfect gift for the fashionista, a little girl learning to use big girl polish, or even yourself!

Husbands, Wives and Facebook

When Facebook came out I thought, cool. Then it became a great place to connect with old friends, new friends, long lost friends and co-workers (current and former).  Its a great thing, if your single. But if your married Facebook can be not only your "friend" but your enemy and your pain in the tush!

A friend of mine recently used her husbands laptop while he was at work because their home computer kicked it. Yep, you guessed it, he had not signed out of his Facebook! So of course she browsed a few minutes to see what he was up to, what normal wife wouldn't? I would! She quickly logged him off and put the laptop aside.  The rest of the day she fumed. Why you ask? What did she see? What did she find?
She had seen his messages. And she had seen the time and date on those messages. One of them had occurred when he was home and she was in the same room! Not only that, it was with a woman. Not just any woman tho. It was one her husband knew she didn't like or trust. One that she had asked him to unfriend because of a previous incident. She checked the time frame and the length of the messaging and it happened over a few hours. The other was another woman as well. One she knew the history of and had worked with herself before. Her husband knew the history and knew she disliked her as well. She had asked him not to chat with her as well. He had not only kept them on but was continuing to have conversations with them both. Most of the conversations were totally innocent, except for a few flirts that were nor reciprocated via the messages, but it was the premise of the whole thing. She and he had a long "colorful discussion" where he called her paranoid and snooping. She called him deceitful and a liar.

 Maybe it would not have been such a big deal if he didn't see these women at work or about town. But he does. She is a bit insecure about herself, so that didn't help either. But she had asked him to remove them from his friends on Facebook and he hadn't. Even tho he spoke to them at work, he kept at it when he was on "family time". Shes still upset and he gives her the "whatever". So, if you don't think Facebook effects marriages, think again.

Trust. That is what it all comes down to. She should trust. He should trust. But they both need to step back from Facebook and re-evaluate their marriage and their trust. How would he feel if the roles were reversed and she was chatting with 2 men the same way he was chatting with the 2 women? She also needs to trust that he will respect their marriage.

Personally, I would be livid! But its not me that happened to. However, I would be livid if hubby re-connected with an ex. I'm very curious tho. How many issues can Facebook cause in a marriage? Has it happened to you or anyone you know?

Madison Reed Summer Hair Tips

10 Hair-Saving Tips for the Pool, Beach, and Fun in the Sun
(This post contains affiliate links.)
Bright and warm days are ahead. During the summer do you battle major beauty bummers like frizz (my biggest issue!), brassiness, dullness, and sunburn. How to deal? Madison Reed rounded up the best defenses–some as simple as just adding water. The sun’s out and fun’s in. Here’s how to beat the heat beautifully. If you live where I do, Central Maine, you may never need to use these tip since summer is only a week or so! But here they are!
Madison Reed - Salon Quality At Home Hair Color
1. Wet hair. It’s simple and effective. Before taking a dip in the pool, drench hair in fresh water. Like a sponge, your strands will soak up water, preventing chlorine and chemicals from penetrating cuticles.
2. Lock in moisture. Before you take a swim, work in a hair oil; it seals hair from chlorine and the drying effects of the sun. Plus, oil provides a bit of weight to prevent flyaways and frizzing.
3. Wear a cap. We’re confident you can pull off this look. If you take frequent dips, you’ll want to embrace a hair cap’s retro charm. The additional barrier does wonders on keeping chlorine out.
4. Rinse off immediately. After pool-time, prevent chemical build-up (and green hair) with a quick rinse. Brownie points if you use a clarifying shampoo followed by an extra-emollient conditioner to bring hair back to its original shine and bounce.
5. Deep condition. A shea-butter-rich treatment is your best anti-frizz secret. You know what they say about an ounce of prevention. It keeps hair more manageable and less tangled even in salty-windy beach conditions.
6. Use an SPF. Most of us dutifully slather sunblock all over our face and body, but we often forget our hair and scalp. Don’t make that newbie blunder. UV rays not only fade hair color, they also dry out hair, cause split ends, and weaken hair’s elasticity. Spritz on a liquid SPF (or DIY by combining 2 teaspoons of SPF lotion with one cup of water). For additional protection, summerize products with UV-fortified formulas. Psst: Madison Reed’s shampoo and conditioner come with UV-shielding lupine flower.
7. Keep hats on. A floppy brim is not just the it-accessory of the season, it offers protection against the color-fading effects of sun.
8. Skip the blow dryer. For natural curls and waves, just go with it. Work with, not against curls; straight styles that require flat irons and blow-drying will fry ends, deplete moisture, and end up giving you more pouf than sleekness.
9. Pull it back. Your best line of defense against the pouf is often a sleek bun or topknot.
10. Don’t touch your hair. Except for occasional flirty hair flips, excessive handling of your hair only causes frizz.

End of School Year Teachers Gift

Every year towards the end of the school year I rack my brains, and the last 2 years Pintrest, to give my kids teachers a gift that wont be re-gifted or thrown away. Last year I went with homemade chocolates and gift cards to Dunkin Donuts. This year the card of choice is Starbucks so I wanted to go with the drink theme. I scoured Pintrest and saw alot of cup themes so I picked one and altered it to my taste. Here is the result!
Here is what we bought and put in the cup. The cup we got at the Dollar Store because Abby really liked the design. The packets we bought at the grocery store. And of course you don't have to use a Starbucks card. Other ideas are Dollar Store, Coffee Shop or even grocery store cards.
The drink packets are attached to a piece of card stock with double sided tape. That paper is rolled to fit into the cup and the gift card is tucked into the center of the cup. Re-attach the top.

The flag for the straw I designed on Picmonkey. It took me a bit of doodling but I finally got one I liked. You can see my template HERE. You can use this one or make your own. It is simple! Just remember to make 2 small cuts for the straw to fit.
I also bought a package of 3 brown paper gift bags to put the cup in. We took one out and Abby drew a picture on it and we wrote a small Thank You note on the other side. That way we didn't give her teacher an extra piece of paper to toss.
We made another one for her bus driver using a cup like this but with white polka dots and filled it with Hershey Kisses and Rollo's. (Her drivers favorite candy!) We did the same thing with a brown paper gift bag that we did for her teacher.
The last day of school will be here soon and unlike past years, I'm teacher and bus driver gift ready!

Anastasia Confections Salt Water Taffy Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was sent a bag of Anastasia Salt Water Taffy and a Coconut Patty in exchange for an honest review. 
The opinions expressed are my own.
The kids and I LOVED this taffy! It is so much better than what we usually get at the local grocery store! As soon as I opened the box it was shipped in the kids had the bag open an most of it eaten! It is Daigle kid approved! My husband had the coconut patty and he is not much of a candy eater so his approval of it is a compliment!
Anastasia Confections Taffy had alot of flavors to appease any and everyones tastes. The twins favorite was the Neapolitan. Mine was the Blue Raspberry. They sent a chart with the order that tells you the flavors so you don't have to guess. They also have Seasonal and Sour Taffy. They sell Assortments too! They have Classic, Tropical, Sour and Holiday. Perfect for gifts!
It has definitely earned this:

Whistlefritz Learning Songs in French Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was sent a CD copy of Whistlefritz Learning Songs in French titled "Allons Dancer!" (Lets Dance!) My opinions are, as always. my own.

I absolutely love this CD! I have wanted my kids to learn French since they were born but they are so stubborn! Within 2 minutes of putting this in to listen to, my 6 yo was thrilled and spinning. I caught myself singling along too! I can speak french so I understood what was being sung. But for those that don't speak it, there is a booklet that come with it with the words and translations. This, I can tell, is going to be a  long standing favorite CD in our home!
You can hear samples of the CD HERE.
The CD sells for $14.99 and they also have an educators and homeschool section on their site.
Their Mission:
To support parents, grandparents, home educators, and teachers in teaching Spanish and French to children by creating high-quality French and Spanish language immersion programs that enable children to learn in a fun, educational environment.
"Allons chanter! (Let’s sing!) Allons danser  (Let’s dance!) Apprenons le français  (Let’s learn French!) Get in the language-learning groove with this fun-filled collection of original tunes and beloved traditional favorites performed by internationally-acclaimed French artists Marie-Louise Desage and Didier Prossaird. From “Bonjour Les Amis”to “Au Revoir”, kids and adults will want to dance and sing along to these irresistible rhythms and catchy lyrics that introduce French words and phrases such as numbers (“Un, Deux et Trois”), parts of the body (“La Tête, Les Épaules/Head, Shoulders”) and children’s favorite topics (“Quand Je Serai Grand/When I’m Big” and “Y’a Pas de Fête Sans Gâteau/It’s Not a Party Without Cake.”) A rollicking rendition of “Le Vieux MacDonald (Old MacDonald)” puts a French twist on a beloved classic. Take the music and fun along with this French learning CD which makes learning French as easy as un, deux, trois!" ~From their website~

My rant for today!

I am not a believer in judging people. I don't think a persons situation determines who they are on the inside. Actions speak louder than words. If your actions show you to not be a decent person, then your words mean nothing to me and I chose not to know you any longer. I was raised that way. I dislike hypocrits. Don't preach one thing but then do another. Its not the trait of a decent person!

I don't normally let people peek into my past, but after reading some comments in my local paper, I want to share a short time frame from my past. This is why I don't judge. I have been there.

I got pregnant with my oldest at 17. His "sperm donor" was accepting until he disappeared when my son was 6 months. He got married to another woman and decided he didn't want to be a father to our son. I was in school and working part time. I had my own apartment and a car, bought for me 4th hand by my dad. He paid the insurance and registration so I could afford my own place. After I graduated, I went to college and during that time, lost my job because my hours were longer open to work. So I applied for public assistance and was approved. My child support and food stamps kept us from needing to move in with my parents. After awhile tho, the child support collecting from my ex went down the crapper. So I was full on state help.

My welfare checks were small. After I cashed them I put the rent money aside and shopped for the necessities for the month. Diapers, wipes, cheap and easy food (to make it to food stamps), and formula to supplement WIC. We lived this way until I graduated college. I didn't buy beer or drugs. I was home with my son if I wasn't at school or work as I had gotten a PT job at Burger King about 2 months before graduation. I didn't party and never had a guy, or guys, spend the night. I had 1 serious boyfriend in the 2 years I was on assistance and he never spent the night. (Several years later I met my awesome hubby and the rest in another story.) When I was hired on Full Time at an ambulance company I went right off aid. But I learned from being on it budgeting and going without for my child.

So the whole point of this rant is not everyone on welfare is cheating the system or selling their food stamps or wasting their child support. All I have read in the comments sections of newspapers is how people are cheating the system an lying. Not all people all bad or horrid that collect. People shouldn't judge others just because they are on assistance. We don't know their full story. If abuse is suspected, report it to the right people, let them deal with it.
