Mailbox Monday

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!

We had lots of rain, but thankfully the clouds disappeared taking the rain with it for most of Saturday, allowing for a dry day on the football field.

My 6 yr old son started his first year of football. We kicked off the season with a Jamboree, where the Warriors played two half games against two different teams. Sadly, we lost our first game, but we chopped it up to experience and learned from our mistakes. This was not only the boys first game ever, but most of our coaches have never coached a game either. We came back and showed our Warrior pride and won the second game 18-6. I am proud of our little guys on the team, but I have to give my son props... He didn't let anyone past him, he played Offensive tackle, and when his guy fell down he ran along side the kid with the ball making sure he didn't get tackled. I am really looking forward to our first official game this weekend!!

Now it's Monday and the rain is back and we had to get up early...yuck! There are errands to run and dentist appointments to keep. The highlight of my morning was doing some blog hopping and finding out that I won Highland Rebel by Judith James on Anna's blog. Thanks so much to both Anna and Judith James. I will be anxiously awaiting finding this one in my mailbox!

Here are the books I found this week in my mailbox:

I won Possession on Lea's blog during her Devyn Quinn week.

I won Where the Wind Blows on Emily Bryan's blog when Caroline Fyffe was guest hosting.

Thanks again Lea, Devyn Quinn, Emily Bryan and Caroline Fyffe!!

Last week I purchased a few books for my Kindle as well. There is just something about that instant gratification!!!

I broke down and bought the Lords of the Underworld bundle (couldn't beat the price--4 books for 9.99) containing: The Darkest Fire, The Darkest Night, The Darkest Kiss and The Darkest Pleasure.

I have been eying this cover for months now!! For some reason every time I look at it I think about The Last of the Mohicans.

Another one where I couldn't beat the price... Plus this cover is beautiful!

I had to buy an Eve Silver book after Barbara raved about this author.
