A Thank You + A Surprise

Before I get into today's post, I have to say thank you. Thank you so much to every one of you who showed love and support over the past few days. I had no idea that I would write the post to my grandpa on Tuesday night and have him pass away the next morning. Even though we knew the end was near, the news of his passing took my breath away and left me feeling "but that was too soon". It's one of those things that even when we feel prepared, we are never prepared. But again, thank you to each one of you who have poured out love, prayer, hugs, etc. The next few days will be hard saying our final goodbyes to my grandfather, but what a great life we get to honor. You internet people are pretty dang special. Love and more love to every last one of you. 
So while I am off taping pictures on picture boards, pulling out any articles of black clothing I own, and eating lots of great homemade food made with lots of love for my family and I, I have a treat for you. It's called Tech Armor and they are here today to give one of you a prize package valued at over $650 which may or may not include an iPhone 5C. I would be lying if I didn't already tell my husband to enter. 
It's like this: Tech Armor is the Bergdorf Goodman of cell phone accessories only at Target prices. This means insane high quality items for insane great prices if you didn't quite understand my analogy. And yes, I had to Google "high end department stores" for that reference, thank you. Their slogan "you play, we protect" means exactly that. If that line didn't already make you think of it, think of their products as a condom for your phone. Basically you can go buck wild with your phone and not have to pay any consequences for your crazy actions. 
This product review just got really awkward. 
Back to the point at hand--check out some of their amaze cases we have goin' on here. Keep in mind these are less than $10.  
 iPhone 5S Bumper Case

How do I know they are amaze? Well, we can start by looking at their 4.9 star rating on Amazon with over 87,000 reviews. Tech Armor doesn't just sell you a case and hope it works out for you. They stand by every purchase and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Two last things--ladies, I can't think of a better gift idea for your man for Christmas. Men like strong things. They also like sweet looking USB car chargers.

Regardless of who you are buying for, you should probably use a discount code because that'd be dumb not to. Feel free to use TALIVEYELLOW for 15% off your order

And now, you may enter your hearts out to win this fabulous prize package: 
 iPhone 5C of your choice // Tech Armor iPhone 5C case of your choice




  1. You know what's awesome? That not that long ago, you said that you should be having dinner with your grandparents more, since they live so close to you - and that the time you spent with them when you had dinner those few weeks ago were so special. I'm so happy for you to have had that special time with your grandparents before your grandfather passed.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself during this time. We'll all be here for you.

  2. Losing a grandpa has to be one of the most difficult things in the entire world. But it's always important to know that after the days you don't want to get out of bed will be days filled with so much love and hope to make your heart burst. Take care of yourself during the grieving process, lovely.

  3. I'm sorry about your grandpa. :( It's good you were able to have that nice meal with them recently... Xoxo

  5. I'm so sorry that you lost such a special person in your life. It's wonderful that you have precious memories of him to treasure until you see him again in heaven.

  6. Sorry for your loss. I'm an ICU nurse so I comfort people going through those difficult times unfortunately rather often. I cannot imagine the pain you're feeling, but smile about the great memories and live the live your grandpa would be proud of.

  7. Erin, I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my grandmother just a few months ago and completely know how you feel. Although I hated the reason I truly loved creating her photo memory board for her memorial - my family and I were able to go through so many photos of her and I loved learning more about her and re-living memories. I hope you can find some peace in the process and remember all the wonderful moments you had with your grandfather - those are what we get to keep forever.

  8. I am so sorry Erin. I lost both of my maternal grandparents this year and it sucks.
    Hugs to you!
