Mailbox Monday: Valentines

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. It's a fun focus on what books you're getting in the mail each week. I didn't get any books in the mail this week, but I'm sticking with the meme for the sake of February and A Month of Letters. Book-wise, I sent out my copy of The Spymistress by Jennifer Chiaverini, which I reviewed here.

I mailed this book via Paperbackswap, which I talked about last week. Thought you guys might want to see the other side of the exchange. I enjoyed this book, and now I can pass it on to another who might enjoy it as well! Love it! I also sent out some more valentines and a little restaurant voucher as an extra Valentine's Day gift to my parents. Speaking of which--Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! I hope you guys had fun celebrating with your friends and family. Trying to eat out in my town on Valentine's Day is like signing a form that says, "Please, can I have the most stressful, loud, and possibly dangerous experience of all time trying to have a meal with my family?" So, Tony picked up some sushi to-go, and Gabe picked the movie we watched--Mr. Peabody & Sherman, his current favorite. Gabe also made this adorable valentine card with heart shapes and some foam stickers:

I can't get the picture to rotate, but you get the idea. As for what I got in the mail this week, I received a few valentines from family, and some on-the-go yogurt and granola breakfast pouches I had ordered. Plum Organics--yum! What did you guys get in the mail this week? Those of you who requested mail from me, be looking for it soon, and if you didn't there's still time! Also, be on the look-out for a giveaway I plan to host in the next week or two in honor of A Month of Letters!


  1. Oh nuts, I was planning to do Mailbox Monday this week, and then I forgot because it was President's Day and not a normal Monday. Though for the life of me, I can't remember now what I got in the mail last week. Huh.

    1. Oh! But anyway, what a cute valentine! My kids made some for their grandparents, but they were mostly just about pasting on hearts at random.

    2. I almost forgot, too (hence the late night posting)! I'm having a busy couple of weeks at work. But I do the same thing and forget. Sometimes I have to write it down or take pictures of what I'm getting so I remember. And thanks! Ours are usually random as well. This idea was actually from a craft day I organized at my store, but Gabe decided to make some, too. He insisted the lion be in the grass. :)
