Mailbox Monday

So today I have that doctor appointment that was canceled last week. I'm not sure what to expect, but hopefully it helps! I have both sides of the predictions-'Your going to be down so expect feeling like crap' and or 'You may feel better because of them.'

Anyone want to place bets?!

Anyway, have a happy Monday everyone =]

I got this amazingly beautiful necklace from one lovely lady named Echo. I don't know if you remember, but I did a review for her awhile back(if your interested, check out the review HERE)on her Etsy shop Nutmegclick.

I love going through her shop to see what she has added and I had my eye on this little beauty for awhile before I actually took the plunge and purchased it(it did help a little bit that it was on sale).

After a seemingly long and excitingly agonizing wait, it arrived in a fun little package last Monday. I took it out and fell right in love with it :D

The only bad thing is it's not long enough to fit my fat little neck(I think I just contradicted myself) so I'm going to have to do a little putzin around with it. I will make it fit!

Story time!! You know how you go to the library or a garage sale and get a book that looks appealing to you, only to find something inside while flipping through the pages? Kind of like a little treasure-I always LOVE to find random pieces of paper, used bookmarks and other seemingly useless things inside the pages of a book.

Well one of those times, I found a bookmark that became very special to me. I used it so much that it started to disintegrate(no joke). I even laminated it with clear tape when It looked like it lost a few good chunks from it.

Well, I lost it one day last year and I have been looking for it ever since! I was devastated when I lost that thing and searched everywhere for it until about a month ago when I finally gave up looking for it.

That's when I remembered a feature I did on MonicaMarks-an Etsy shop that specialized in custom bookmarks(view the feature Here). Well I didn't hesitate to contact Monica and have her make me a custom bookmark that I will love just as much as the one I lost and she succeeded!!

I didn't wait to use it! I ripped that package open and it's in my Twilight book as I type ;-)

This was a case of 'I'm-a-lucky-SOB' Lol On a whim, I decided to enter for this book in a contest over at Sweeps4Bloggers about an hour before it was done and guess what!? I got a congratulatory email the next day saying I had one! O.o

I thought this would be perfect for my sister who is going away to college in the fall and I was extremely happy I could give it to her when It arrived on Friday :D

Now whether she reads it is a different matter. Lol

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

BEst of luck at the doctor today...and here's hoping its one of the feel better visits! Congrats on the last minute win..that is so cool and I bet your sister will enjoy the read. I'm like you with old books. One of the reasons I like to go to garage sales that have old books is to see what is tucked inside...kind of like a piece of the past and an insight into the last reader. Fun, fun!!
