In My Mailbox (14)... In Which I Attempt a Vlog for the First Time.

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

I'm probably going to live to regret this, but here goes. I am visiting my parents this weekend for a friend's wedding and also for a little early Christmas. I got some freaking awesome gifts.

I also decided to be ballsy and vlog for the first time. Um, awkward. But because you all asked so sweetly, I'm gonna go ahead and forget about the fact that I'm socially (virtually?) inept and take a crack at it.

Bought (and not pictured, because I didn't bring them.)
- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
- There are two others that I can't remember because I left them at home. Oh, dear. This is the most disorganized IMM ever.

For Christmas
Nook light
Gift card to Borders
Twilight Saga with the white covers <3


I realize it's incredibly delayed and kinda blurry and the lighting changes. Also, I'm aware of the A.D.D. I had some distractions. I'm also technologically inept, so I don't know how to edit or make it UN-delayed. Sorry guys. If there's a next time, I promise it'll be better :D

Yep. That's it. Be gentle.


  1. You are a fantastic singer! YAY! And even though I largely don't like Twilight, the U.K. editions are pretty. Enjoy you Nook!

  2. LOVED it!! And yes, you can sing! This vlog seriously rocked :) When are you going to do another one? Lol

    I am super jealous of you Nook! I have my fingers crossed that I will get one for Christmas too :)

  3. So cute! You have a really nice voice. I'm jealous of the white Twilight books, they're so cute. Oh, and I wanted to see the cat hehe

  4. You got a nook, it's so pretty. :D I really, *really*, hope I get one.

    The UK Twilight books are so nice. Like you I only consider it a trilogy and don't acknowledge that one other book unless it's for laughs. :P

    You sing really good! So funny that you forgot the next line. :D

  5. Omg, your vlog was SO adorable! I love your voice :)

  6. The white Twilight books are really really pretty :D I haven't even read Breaking Dawn yet though, because I know I won't like it *cough* Renesmee *cough*
    And your a really good singer! Great vlog :D

  7. A vlog!!! Please do a vlog for IMM every week. You and your family are adorable :)

  8. Loved it! Reminded me of Show Choir! Haha. And I loved Dani's cameo. :)

  9. I don't remember you sounding like you do! lol... and I don't know why I think that, you just sound different for some reason. And I'm very very very JEALOUS of the Twilight books! I want them! If anyone reads this I would LOVE them as a gift! Great vlog! :)

  10. Great vlog! I so want the white Twilight covers!

  11. This was beyond awesome :-) You're the cutest thing ever (REESE!! LOL) You'll have to tell me how you like your Nook. I'm still on the fence when it comes to e-readers. And yes, YOU CAN SING! awesome voice, my dear.

  12. Oh, that was too funny! Thanks for being adventurous :) I've never seen the white Twilight covers before, but they were creepily gorgeous!

  13. I love it and let's discuss how you are so gorgeous! happy you finally did this!

  15. Me too, I am so jealous that you have the white Twilight covers! I really want them... Someday I will have them in my paws!

    I'm new to twitter. I'm new following you...

    Mad Scientist

  16. I haven't made a VLOG yet either because I am nervous about making one. I loved yours. I think the best ones are the ones without edits because it's truly life happening. PS I loved your singing. :)

    Enjoy your nook. I'm supposed to be gettinga Kindle in the new year from my BF and cannot wait!

    Merry Christmas!

  17. Awesome vlog! You were hilarious and not awkward at all. So happy that you got a Nook. I'm excited to get mine soon. I already have four books on NetGalley ready to download. Now those of us who have/are getting a Nook will be able to share books! Enjoy all your new books and Merry Christmas! :-)


    And you DO NOT sound like a man!! AT ALL. And you have an amazing voice. I am beyond jealous and I demand that you sing at my wedding! No seriously. Mr. Jen can come too :)

  19. That. Was. Awesome. And holy pipes lady - you are amazing!

  20. Such a cute vlog! :) I need to ask my sister if I can use her computer because she has a Mac and I know that will turn out way better than if I try to use my ancient webcam that makes me look all blurry.

    SO excited you got a Nook! Let me know if you have any Nook-ish questions. My mom recently got one (aka, I've been using it all the time).

  21. your vlog is TOO freaking cute!

    request - vlog every week. thank you :)

  22. Great first VLOG! And you have a beautiful signing voice.

  23. Congrats on the Nook!! Welcome to the world of ereading :)

    Those white covered with red pages Twilight series is awesome! I didn't even know they existed. Where did you get them from?

    Will Grayson, Will Grayson was one of my favorite YA reads of 2010. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did :)

    Wow, you sing very nice!

    BTW I'm a new reader (of your blog). Found you via Twitter :)

  24. OMG! I freakin' love you Jen! You are the cutest and might I add VERY entertaining. You made me laugh all the way through. More vlogs please!!! And holy mother you can singgggggggggg - so lucky!

    LOVE it! Encoreeeeee :P

    Merry X-Mas bumblebee - I won't hold it against you for getting a Nook either. Team Kindle! hehe

  25. My twilight covers came with some red smears on one of them too! It's on the side though so I though it was just from rubbing together being shipped..dunno?

  26. Yay for the Nook! I absolutely adore mine, would be completely lost without it. The LendMe feature rocks too! Hope you enjoy it :)
