In My Mailbox (3)

Before I show off my book scores from this week, I have to tell you guys what an awesome weekend I had.  Honey Bear and I went to Alabama for a slumber party with my Nestie Besties - Crystal, Leah, and Anna!  I haven't been to a slumber party since...high school??  Junior high??  It's been a while.  And it was awesome! 

We saw Eclipse, which had us rolling on the floor.  I've not read the books, but seriously guys.  The jean shorts.  Hilarious.  Then we went back to Crystal's for nail painting, lasagna and cupcake eating, Loaded Questions, something really fun with the word dice in the title that I forgot, and Never Have I Ever.  Never Had I Ever played that game before, but good times!  Now I'm even more excited for meeting up with the ladies in a few weekends for Decatur Book Festival

Now for In My Mailbox, which is hosted by The Story Siren.  Head over to her blog and see what everyone else picked up this week!

    I do wish I could've watched the whole movie with you guys though..I can only imagine the commentary.
