Allstate: Good Hands For The Good Life #GoodLife

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Allstate. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

I absolutely adore Allstate’s new “Good Hands For The Good Life” campaign.

Life is full of scary moments.  From birth to death things come that make us nervous but the potential for reward is often great.

I see it with my nephew all the time.  He’s just over 3 and spent the day at Busch Gardens with his mom and dad this week.  They were trying to get him on one of the rides.  He was so scared they got out of line twice.  (Although I want to point out that his logic was correct- people were screaming on the ride and that doesn’t exactly want to make you jump on it).    But after some persuasion from his dad he discovered that he DOES like the log flume and rode it a half dozen more times screaming himself out of great joy.

With his dad at his side he found a moment of triumph- where he overcame his fears for great reward.

As adults we have those moments too- job interviews, moving to a new city, risking your heart with a new person.  Each has potential for huge rewards or huge disappointment.

With that in mind check out this AWESOME video made by Allstate.

It makes me think of going away to college.  At 17 I packed up my belongings and left to go to a school where I knew no one.  I remember my parents leaving and I looked down the long hall full of girls I had never met.  I determined that I would just walk up the hall, find an open door and introduce myself.  Fortunately one of the first doors I passed by was a girl in her room paying a song I knew on her guitar.  Instant friendship for a singer- finding a good guitar player is striking gold!  That one moment of bravery lead to four years of great friendships (and some learning too).

The Allstate Good Life can be available for you!

So what risks have you taken?  What sharks did you swim by to reach your goals?

Locals: The Washington Post Subscription Instead of The Virginian Pilot?

Yesterday I was cutting coupons with a blogger friend (yep we do that) and some of her inserts had different covers on them then mine do.  I asked her what was up and she nonchalantly said they were from The Washington Post.

Now occasionally I will stop by the store on Sunday and grab a Post but not every week- they are around $3!

She explained to me she has The Washington Post dropped on her front porch every Sunday morning.  I had no idea it could be delivered here!

You see I love The Virginian Pilot but they have one major flaw- they do not have the Red Plum Insert inside.

So I went online and checked out The Washington Posts website- my zip code is included in their delivery area now!

Currently you can get a year’s subscription to The Washington Post for $.99 a week for a paper with potentially better coupons plus ALL the inserts.  Right now I am going to have it delivered each week along with my Virginian Pilot.

I still have about 5 months left on my subscription to the Virginian Pilot so I don’t have to make a decision for a while about what I will do.

But if I don’t have any delivery issues with The Washington Post- The Pilot is in danger of being cancelled!

*Offer only valid in limited locations within The Post’s 7-day home-delivery area for new subscribers and those who have not been a Post subscriber for the past 30 days. You will be charged a one-time payment for the initial 52-week subscription period. After 52 weeks pay $2.50/week.
