Mailbox Monday(3/15)

Mailbox Monday divulges into the inner workings of my mailbox throughout the week. From books to jewelry to free samples to random magazines and letters-You never know what will be in the mail this week...


When I want something, I set my mind to get it. Period.

This is what happened when I saw the movie Whip It-I LOVED that movie so much and the soundtrack rocked-my-socks off, so I knew I wanted them, however I was too cheap to buy them.

Cue online giveaways and contests.

Thanks to my strong will, determination and a little luck, not only did I win a copy of the DVD (hasn't arrived yet), but I also got the soundtrack thanks to Kailani of An Island Life which arrived bright and early Tuesday :)

Of course, as much as I love getting products and freebies in the mail each week, I always welcome a good, ol' fashioned, hand written letter.

There is nothing like that personal connection between two people that email could never capture :)

I was lucky enough to get one in the mail on Friday from a Lymie friend of mine who ironically lives in IL, too.

For those of you who are always jealous of my mailbox each week, I am glad to inform you that I'm a normal person; I get bills too!

I got my credit card bill on Friday, as well as that lovely handwritten letter.

Granted, I only had to pay about $5.00, but still, it was a bill! Lol

What did you get in the mail this week?

I haven't seen the movie. And with email, handwritten letters are rare.
