*In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren* So head over there if you want to check out what everyone else got, or if you want to find out how to participate!!!

So…~~~~Flashback~~~~ A few months ago, I had a super-awesome low-key b-day involving a Netflix Murder She Wrote marathon, a thin crust cheese lovers pizza (w/pepperoni, beef, and mushroom), and some quality time spent with my sis.

I couldn’t have wished for a nicer day.  It wasn’t about presents—just about *being present.*

~~~~Fast Forward~~~~

And we’re back.

Well, in the meantime, I’ve had a couple of belated b-day presents trickle in…

But before we get to my awesome b-lated-b-day presents….there is some other pretty awesome stuff…

…like I won an ARC of Sophie Jordan’s Vanish from Harper through their First Reads contest on Goodreads!!!!  :D

…and then I won some sweet Nine Lives of Chloe King swag from ABC Family channel through playing the Nine Paths to Chloe King game on their site and entering the clues.  I won a t-shirt, and two cute little charms!!!

And back to my b-day presents…

First, since it ‘tis the season, I gotta give a shout out to the newest additions to my already epic Christmas collection—I am a Christmas music junkie all year ‘round, but this is the only time of year I don’t get weird looks when I start blasting it.—I had a pretty extensive Christmas collection to begin with, but these have totally upped the ante.  Old school, all the way.

 Bing Crosby Christmas, Bing Crosby the Voice of Christmas, Frank Sinatra:  The Christmas Collection; Christmas with the Stars; Christmas Treasures; Let It Snow; Hot Songs for a Cool Yule, and Christmas by the Fire

And back to books:
In paperback, a complete collection of Jon Hassler’s novels:
I am sort of obsessed with these books.  I love them.
Four Miles to Pinecone
Simon's Night
A Green Journey
Grand Opening
