Wish List


If you want to send me something I’d always appreciate the following:


– My Horizontal Life, Chelsea Handler

-The Jefferson Key, Steve Berry

– The Golden Notebook, Doris Lessing

– The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas

– The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Victor Hugo

Odds and Ends

– Peanut Butter

– Luna Bars

– Triscuits

– Dried fruit

– Nuts

– Protein powder

– Protein bars

– Spices  (nutmeg, lemon pepper, onion powder, pumpkin)

– Magazines

– Reeses

– Goldfish

– Raisinets (chocolate, yogurt)

And of course news from home!  I’d love to be your pen pal 🙂

*When sending packages please note the following guidelines:

-Nothing over a pound

– Padded envelopes, NO boxes

– Use red ink when addressing packages (For some reason it makes it look more official to them)

– Put religious sayings, quotes, and pictures on the envelope (I’ve heard that specifically putting pictures of the Virgin Mary over the seal will almost always ensure the package arrives safely- they don’t like to cut through the image to go through the package)

– And for a real kicker- Address packages as “Sister Brittany Goetsch”

      Thanks! It’s been fun posting my experiences on here. My News Years resolutions I think are the same as most people- eat healthier, workout more. Haha we’ll see how well I do. Love you too!
