Yankee candle rewards

It seems that many stores offer some sort of rewards program in return for you shopping with them.  I just learned that one of my favorite places to shop (for me) has one too!  YEAH!!!!

I was shopping at our local Yankee Candle store this week and met a wonderful woman who shared an in-store special where items were marked down 50% off AND they had a bonus 10% off.  That made for amazing deals.

Upon further discussion I found out that she follows our page!  Even more thrills!!  She then shared with me the newest program which was just launched called Yankee Candle Fan Club.

You create your account (for free) and then, when you shop, you earn points for your purchases.  Those points are turned into cash vouchers, which you can use towards a future purchase!!

Like I said, you can join for free.  Right now, they do not have the availability to sign you up in the store, so you can do so on line.  It takes just a few minutes.  And, right now when you sign up, they will give you 3,000 bonus points!!  I love free points!

Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 12.14.23 PM

Once you create your account,  you can more points by following them on various social media sites, such as Pinterest and Twitter.  If you sign up for emails you will also earn points.  Of course, for every dollar you spend, you will be rewarded with 100 points!

When you reach 10,000 points, you will receive a $5 voucher.  If you do everything available to you right now, you will get a grand total of  6,800 points just for getting signed up.  That doesn’t even include any purchases you make.

You can enter past receipts into your account (as long as it has not been more than 90 days).  Then, when you shop in the store, make sure you give them your attached email address and then your purchase will automatically be applied to your account.  If you shop online, just make sure that the email you use for your purchase is also the same as your account to get rewards.

So, what are you waiting for?  Get signed up today!

The Honest Truth About Summer

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

As a mom I admit that it is my least favorite time of the year.....but probably not for the reason you think!!!

 

I will be honest.  I really don’t like summer.  While many love having the days of sleeping in, vacations, pools and more, for me it means something different.  In a word – FIGHTING.  Wait, let’s make that three words –  NON-STOP FIGHTING.

I have three kids, who I truly love with all my heart.  I really do.  They range in age from 6 – 10.  They have different personalities.  They are passionate about so many different things.  They love summer and swimming.  However, there are days when it feels like what they love most are the endless days of ……..  fighting.

Each day seems to start with the same ideology that today will be different.   Right?  Who am I kidding?!  I wake wishing and hoping that today will be the day when they won’t fight or argue about who gets to sit on the sofa or which episode of Paw Patrol will be played on the TV.    Is today the one when they will not complain about their brother annoying them by dressing as a police officer for the 47th time in a week?  Pffffttt……that only happens in fantasy land.

They fight. Somedays, it feels like they fight non-stop.  No matter what we try from the coin discipline method to tickets and even fines….nothing seems to work.  Short of locking them up in their rooms all day long, there is nothing I can seem to do to get them to get along.  There are days I’ll admit that a cocktail sounds good….and I look at the clock and it is 9:22 a.m.  (It is 5 o’clock somewhere, isn’t it?)

Pool Time Fun

We do have a lot of fun together.  We visit the store and check out the toys and games.  We will have lunch out (and even an occasional picnic).  We spend LOTS of time at the pool.   We’ll visit arcades and an indoor bounce house.  We’ll download a movie and make snacks and curl up together on the sofa.  I am doing my best to make summer fun for them and to give myself a break from the bickering.  When we partake in these fun activities, it is very welcoming.  I get that much needed break from the arguing.  However, as soon as we are done or headed back home, it seems that they pick right back up where they left off.  Can you say instant headache?

Of course, there are times when I try to have fun with the fighting.  I will whine back at them just like they do.  That often makes them laugh and they forget that they were mad.  Yet, there are those few times when it does have the opposite effect and makes them more angry.  We do time outs and alone time in our rooms.  My personal favorite is when I make them give one another a hug. They really hate that, but what more can I do? Oooo wait….maybe I need to have them sit on the sofa for 5 minutes holding hands.  THAT would be fun!!!!

Countdown to back to school

To be completely honest, I am in countdown mode to school starting again.   Now, before someone says I am trying to dump my kids onto teachers, please note that is NOT true.  I do love my kids and actually – I really like them too (outside of those times they are fighting).    It is NOT because I don’t like to be around them.  They are funny little people who say the most amazing or hilarious things.   In fact, just a week ago, my 10 year old told her dad that she thinks he makes $956.24 every two weeks and her grandma made around $325.  I was laughing so hard I was nearly in tears.  They really are fun to be around….most days.

To be completely truthful, there are a few reasons I like school.  First of all, it gives them more structure and a regular routine.  We still do some routines in the summer (regular bedtimes and eating schedules) but we also try to not be as rigid.  After all, they are kids and need down time from the daily grind (as we all do).  Sure, they love the lazy days of sleeping in and playing, but even they admit that they get bored.

That is another reason I like school….they have something to do.  I can’t entertain them all of the time.  I tell them that too.  I spend plenty of time doing things with them  (see above) but I can’t be a playmate all day long.  I think I’d lose my ever loving mind!

The final reason I like school is the break we get from one another.  You see, that is why they they fight.  They are together 24/7.  There is no break given to them.  They do not have very many opportunities to bond with friends without a sibling being close by.  They thrive through those friendships and the socializing that they get with those who are their own age.  They need a chance to get away from one another and those few hours at school each day seems to help.

I love my kids with all my heart, but the summer…not so much?  Three full months away from school is a bit overrated.  I, for one, am ready to see the Back to School signs coming up and knowing that we are just a few weeks away from getting back to school, and THAT’S okay!

Now, where did I set that glass of wine?
