things in my mailbox
I love to get mail. I mean, I love it an unreasonable amount. My mom would order catalogs for me just so I’d be happy. (And also because I have an unhealthy attachment to flipping through catalogs and marking things I want but will never have.) The sad part to that is that I very rarely actually get mail. My bills are primarily taken care of online and I don’t have all that many people who send me things. Okay, fine, no one sends me mail, ya happy? Jeez.
So when stars align and I get a week of LOTS of mail, I get scarily excited. Because I’m terrible at saving money, I’d ordered several things last month. To be fair, 90% was necessity to not freeze to death in the coming winter. My two fun purchases were placing an order for tasty awesomeness via Jenna and Mark of Whimsy & Spice and buying a few books (the last batch until I read all these, I swear). And so, I waited for my winter stuff and my cookies.
But lo! I was also rewarded with books! And a shirt! I won a contest that Britney hosted on her book blog Taking Friday. And on top of that, my amazing friend Canadian Sara (whose name is just Sara, but a decade ago, I had to make the distinction between School Sara and Canadian Sara to my mother, and now I have no idea how to just say Sara) sent me a package o’ books as well! Additionally, my beloved Mari sent me a sample shirt from her kpop shop, along with a hand mirror. THE BACK OF MY SHIRT SAYS KEY, YOU GUYS. I LOVE KEY. /fangirl
Anyway. For a brief stretch in October, I felt really special to have so much mail. So thanks for sending me things, guys!
P.S. Buy things from Whimsy & Spice. DO IT NOW. Hocrap, tasty. I am now cookie-free.
