Best Mail Day Ever

Okay, what would you say are the best things you could get in the mail? Yesterday I received three things in the mail that were just wonderful! Here's the low down on what I received:

1. Birthday card from a friend (yes, today is my birthday)

Not only was it a card, but she took the time to write a letter in the card, which made it all the more better. I had not heard from my friend for about a year, so it was so nice to sit down and take a few minutes to catch up with her. Thanks, Raylene!

2. A new dress

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know my DH does not have a great track record for birthday gift giving. (In fact, it is kind of funny to see how bad he actually does--I will post about this year's gifts later.) Knowing this, I ordered myself a new dress. I chose this Shabby Apple design--my first ever purchase from them. I tried it on right away and it fits great. I love how the website gives good descriptions of how their designs fit on the body. They made it easy to select the right size.

3. My book

Yep, Family Home Evening Adventures finally arrived! I was so excited to see it in hard copy and hold it in my hands. Such a thrill! I immediately took a copy over to my manuscript editor -- I just had to share it with someone.

Another great part about yesterday's mail: no bills came!

Scripture of the day: D&C 59:15-21


  1. Happy B-day! And congrats on the book!

  2. Happy birthday, Becky! I always love new dresses.

  3. Getting your book in the mail is DEFINITELY a great b-day present. Yay! Have a great day!

  4. Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday DEAR Becky, Happy birthday to you. Love you wonderful woman.

  5. What an amazing mail delivery day!!! I'm so glad you chose to get the dress for your reward or was this actually the hubby's gift for birthday? And then of course congrats on the book. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Becky!

  6. Hooray, happy birthday! Did your dress come with the phone? :)

    Book looks great!

  7. :) Happy Birthday! I'm so glad that I was able to spend a little bit of today with you!! :)

  8. How perfect that the book came on your birthday! What a way to celebrate. Hope you had a great day. Cute dress too.

  9. Congrats and Happy Birthday!

    Love the dress.

  10. That must be a completely exhilarating feeling to hold a copy of a book that you wrote, I have thoughts of book writing in the back of my head, maybe someday. But congrats to you, and Happy Belated birthday!
