Over on my other “home” Moms Vacation Land, I discussed some interesting topics as well such as whether enabling is good or bad and I talked about how I found out my county has the highest level of teen pregnancies in NH. I also decided to talk about virtual friendships versus real life friendships and talked about over scheduling children.

I hope you enjoy all the reads and have time to catch up! Have a super fun Friday!

Giveaway: $100 Gift Card From Office Max for Your Teacher

I am very excited to be announcing a fantastic giveaway for one lucky teacher from the United States!

On behalf of the “A Day Made Better” cause for teachers, you can nominate your teacher to win a gift card to OfficeMax for school supplies!

Teachers are really incredible! They touch so many lives every day and open the doors to opportunity in every way, shape and form. I’ve gotten to know my kids’ teachers over the past few years and have seen first hand their incredible contributions.

With school budgets diminishing nationwide, teachers are starting to take matters into their own hands by purchasing their own classroom materials. According to the National Education Association, teachers are spending about $1000 each year on supplies for their class, which is pretty astonishing. Can you imagine if your job asked you to bring your own tape, scissors, and paper for your desk? There would likely be an uprising, but somehow, teachers have silently picked up the tab…that is until now.

That’s why I’ve joined the Max Moms for teachers program to help create awareness and give back to teachers. The Max Moms are working in collaboration with the national “A Day Made Better” cause founded by OfficeMax and nonprofit Adopt-A-Classroom to help erase teacher-funded classrooms. Annually in October, they host a national event that recognizes and rewards over 1000 teachers with a total of $1 million in school supplies to help alleviate the financial burden and thank them for their hard work.

About A Day Made Better

“A Day Made Better” is a national cause event founded by OfficeMax to benefit its nonprofit partner Adopt-A-Classroom and to call attention to the issue of teachers having to pay for their own classroom supplies. Annually in October, 30,000 OfficeMax associates surprise and honor more than 1,000 teachers at Title 1 schools around the country with a total of $1,000,000 worth of classroom supplies – $1,000 per classroom. Nominated by their principals, teacher recipients receive this honor for their exceptional contributions and going above-and-beyond as an educator. The name, “A Day Made Better,” is derived from the concept that OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom can make at least one day better for teachers by providing them with essential classroom supplies – so they don’t have to. By facilitating 1,000 simultaneous teacher surprise events – all on one day – OfficeMax believes this action will attract public attention to the problem of teacher out-of-pocket spending and motivate the public to help teachers by adopting them through Adopt-A-Classroom.

You too can join in this cause and give back to a deserving teacher by nominating your favorite teacher to receive a $100 gift card for school supplies donated by OfficeMax.

Entry Requirements

1) For a chance to enter and win, please post a comment below that describe why the teacher you’d like to nominate is PassionateDedicated and  Innovative.

2) As an additional entry, you can visit the Welcome tab on OfficeMax’s Facebook page and post a comment here telling us what you think of their Facebook donation campaign benefiting Adopt-A-Classroom.

I am looking forward to your nominations and will announce the winner on October 5, 2010 –national “A Day Made Better” day for teachers!

CLOSED @kraftfoods Macaroni & Cheese Homestyle Dinner Giveaway

I am excited to be sharing a food review today with you all! For some reason I am all of a sudden fascinated with food choices and fast meal ideas, maybe it is because I have one in soccer, a preschool aged child and a toddler. This Mama is getting busier by the minute! When KRAFT asked if I was interested in tasting their new Macaroni & Cheese Homestyle Dinner in three different flavors I was totally game!

KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Homestyle Dinner

I was able to taste test the Hearty Four Cheese Sauce and the Classic Cheddar Cheese Sauce dinners. I plan to cook the Old World Italian with Parmesan and Romano Cheese Sauce sometime over the weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started cooking these other than I noticed that the cheese packages were an almost liquid type of cheese versus the powder cheese you add to most macaroni and cheese products. I knew this was going to be a cheesy meal but what I wasn’t expecting was to have a dinner like this taste like home made baked macaroni and cheese!

Homestyle Hearty Four Cheese

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to actually place the final product in the oven to bake it for a while to increase the home made taste, but I could get that flavor when eating it without placing the meal in the oven. I need a casserole dish and thought I had one but was wrong. If you want a more home made baked macaroni and cheese flavor then you can place this in the oven for a while. Instructions are included on the package. We had this with broccoli to finish off the wonderful meal.

KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Homestyle Dinner 3The kids loved it and so did I. I would highly recommend this to all the macaroni and cheese lovers out there! Simply delicious!
