Tech Candy - My Favorite Phone Cases

I just upgraded from an iPhone 4 to a 5s. I guess I could've gone with the 6 or 6 Plus, but I don't really ever get the "latest and greatest" of anything... I'm kind of slow when it comes to that kind of thing :)
Plus, any way I can save money, I do, and I know the 5s is a good phone, and going from the 4 to the big 6 or huge 6 Plus would've been a significant jump!
Anyway, I needed cases for my new phone. One of the saddest things about getting a new phone was thinking about all the beautiful iPhone 4 cases I have that I'll never be able to use again! (I think I will frame them and maybe one day sell them to a museum.)

The best cases I had for my 4 were from Tech Candy, so I knew right away I wanted my new ones to be from there as well. I've never owned an Otter Box because I really like to switch up my cases, and these Tech Candy cases are pretty protective. My old phone went all over the country with me in that kind of case and was fine (knock on wood).

I went to the TC website
and ordered the following three sets:

I really loved the new tortoise shell look - those are the new, featured cases in the line. And I thought the purple and gold and white was pretty, especially for football and basketball games (purple is the color of my undergrad alma mater; yellow, my grad school alma mater).
The tortoise or white parts are the hard protective part and the colored parts are the silicone protective parts. So they're good phone cases! And you can use any soft part with any hard part, so they're interchangeable, which, for me, provides endless opportunity to have a "different" look on my phone all the time hahah.
My cases came yesterday!
I'm very excited.
I realized you can also order select Tech Candy cases on different websites at discounted prices (Nordstrom Rack is one). I would be mad at myself for just now finding that out, but I did have a coupon code that I used at checkout on the Tech Candy website, so I saved a lot of money. But you can just search discounted Tech Candy cases and find where they are.

These were the ones I had for my precious little iPhone 4:

I got them at Altard State the day I got my first iPhone two years ago. They were very good to me :)

SSP for Warby Parker!

A couple years ago a friend told me about this really trendy site where she ordered her eyeglasses. I had asked her where she got such cute eyewear and her answer was  "Warby Parker!"
I went to the website and was overwhelmed by all the choices! Not only were the glasses trendy, but there were many traditional looks, and awesome colorful frames as well. There were countless options for both men and women, in prescription glasses, non-prescription, AND sunglasses!
I feel like sporting glasses rather than contacts has made a comeback in a big way, and now glasses are an accessory and make a bold statement to complete your look in addition to helping you see.
If you order from WP, you can have FIVE pairs sent to you if the glasses are "available for try-on" before you actually buy them! I have a friend who did this, and it was so easy and fun. I feel like many times, people are wary of ordering frames online since they can't try them on and see how they look, but Warb…

The Reality of Sin

Yesterday I was blessed to sit through THREE amazing church services. Lately, I feel like I really need to absorb as much of the Word as I can on Sundays in order to thrive through the week. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress of daily life, and I've found that the best way to combat that is to be poured into through spiritual teaching. I can't pour into my students or my family or my friends or my middle school girls on Wednesday nights if I'm not constantly growing and learning. 

It's also really cool / interesting to sit at different churches with entirely different groups of people and hear the Word presented in different ways.

Different churches appeal more to families or young people or older people for different reasons.

One thing I realized as I sat in my home church yesterday morning (OakView Baptist) is that although we don't have the lights and the music and coffee, we do hear the Word in a way that really gets deep into your soul.

It's a trend …

Riches I Need Not, Nor Man's Empty Praise

I haven't written anything on here since MARCH. ...not anything from my own spiritual journey. I've done promotions for two companies and that's all I've posted. I am realizing that when I write, I am a better person. I can't believe I haven't written on here in seven months. It makes me sad. I've felt a void!

Ironically, though, what I came here to write is the same topic as what I last posted about - what others think. I found a version of "Be Thou My Vision" that I really love about a month ago, so it's been on repeat. As I'm busy with everything going on in life, I have to constantly remind myself to keep my eyes set on Christ. The line that has stuck out to me the most over the past month is
"Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise."

I'm teaching 9th and 11th grade this semester. In both classes we are reading books set in the Great Depression. We've had discussions (sometimes debates) about how money can't …
