So about the Instagram Scammer...... 

Long story short if a gal from India contacts you to do a high dollar swap or ANY swap be a little leery.  I do not know what usernames she is using now.  She is very very pushy and tries to be overly nice.  Just be cautious when doing swaps.

FREE Printable Daily Habit and Daily Task Planner Stickers


If you follow me on Instagram I am sure you notice my planner pictures.  If you don't follow me on Instagram I suggest you do!  I post planner, life, beauty and whatever I fancy on there.  :)  I have been asked to share my habit/task tracking stickers for the past couple of months and I just figured out how to share PDFs on my blog.  I know.... last person on earth to figure this out.  

Here is what you will need to make these handy little DIY stickers. 


1. Avery 15265 sticker sheets (or sheets of your choice0
2. Printable habit/task tracking stickers
3.  Paper trimmer or scissors

I've included 2 ways to download the habit/task tracker.  You can click on the photo below and save it to your computer.  This will allow you to adjust sizes or you can download it directly from my google drive.  


Download via Google Drive


I know my tracker is simple but please do not reproduce it or call it your own.  :)


Once the stickers are printed use your trimmer or scissors to cut them to size.


Decorate your planner as you see fit and place the stickers on the bottom row :)  

I hope you found this helpful!!  If you download the stickers and use them in your planner use #mandyjeanchic so I can see your pictures :)

DAY TRIP- Rio Rancho Veterans Monument Park and Officer Benner Memorial

Gregg Nigel Benner Rio Rancho Police Department


Last weekend after a brief rainstorm I decided to head to Officer Benner's memorial for the first time since his murder.  While the weather was perfect and the sky was beautiful I still was hesitant to go.  You see, if I didn't go I could keep pretending everything was fine and avoid the moment when I realize we truly lost another hero.  Another hero gone to soon.

Rio Rancho Veterans Monument Park and Public Safety Memorial

I sat in my truck for 20 minutes before I actually got out.  When you drive up to Veterans Monument Park the first thing you see is the temporary memorial to Officer Benner.  Honestly, the first thing I didn't want to see.

Officer Down Memorial Police Memorial

Emotions rushed and tears filled my eyes.  Another hero gone.  When will it end?  When will criminals be held accountable?  When will law enforcement get the support they deserve?  Why did this have to happen?  Why are cops called Pigs?  Why are military disrespected and PTSD being untreated?  Why is society letting these brave men and women down?  Why am I sitting in my truck avoiding saying goodbye?

I was scared.  It was almost dark.  I was scared of being in that part of Rio Rancho late and I was scared of my own emotions.

Rio Rancho Veterans Monument Park and Public Safety Memorial

After 20 minutes I got out of my truck and walked over.  Seeing the out pouring of love for Benner brings tears to my eyes.  A hero getting the respect he deserves.  Looking at the flags, memories, signs, letters and love I realized how safe I felt.

Rio Rancho Veterans Monument Park and Public Safety Memorial

The whole time I was there I had this feeling I was being watched but not in a negative or harmful way.  I felt like I had someone watching over me.  I had this really weird sense of security.  I really can't explain it.

Day Trip Rio Rancho Albuquerque New Mexico

After visiting Benner's memorial I walked over to the Veterans side and the park.  I continued to snap a few pictures until the rain started again.


When I arrived I was angry, hurt and sad.  I didn't understand why and how men and women keep dying while protecting us.  After spending a hour thinking and reflecting I left feeling peace.  I now realize I cannot control what others think and their actions.  I can just pray my friends and loved ones make it home safe.  If they are taken to soon I also realized they become angels and never truly quit protecting us.
