my secret bloggie valentiiiine.

in meals


i interrupt my regularly scheduled blogging because i have an announcement of sorts.

listen up.

today is january 14th AKA 1 month from <3 valentine’s day <3 which is a holiday that, depending on your sitch, you may love or may hate.  i hear the term “hallmark holiday” often.. so many people think of it as a negative hollday.  but really, it should just be about the love.

well folks, learn to love it.  i’ve got a plan.


i know that there is a whole lot of love in this here blogosphere.  am i right or am i right?  of course i am right.

i thought it would be ultra fun to do a secret bloggie swap amongst all of us blog friends in honor of the holiday of loooove.  because let’s face it, i love all of you and i am fairly certain the love is mutual all around the table.

and who doesn’t like getting mail?!!

and this is fun. even if you don’t have a valentine of your own.. now you do!  and if you already have one.. well now you will have two :)  move over marshall, i’ve got blog lovin’ to spread!!

here’s the details!

  • bloggie valentine package should include something you love and want to share with a fellow bloggie friend. anything goes. just try not to mail live animals.. i mean, i love puppies but i ain’t gonna mail you one.
  • package can cost a dollar, five dollars, whatever.  but it should definitely not exceed $25~ we’ve all got budgets!
  • if you would like to participate email me your name & mailing address to janethabenson (at) gmail (dot) com no later than friday, january 22nd
  • i will issue you your secret valentine information (name & mailing address) on saturday, january 23rd~~nobody will know who it is except you and i!
  • send your secret bloggie valentine package out so it will arrive on or before valentine’s day (february 14th!)
  • everyone will receive a surprise valentine’s day package from their secret bloggie valentine!

YAAAAY!  so, if you would like to participate~ email me today! right now! let’s start spreading the la la la loooooove.

oh and feel free to spread the word about this fun exchange and ALSO go right ahead and use that super sweet image i made in paint. yeah, i know, i got skillz.

i have a birthday party to attend, i will be back tomorrow with details of todays meals & moves (just finished a killer lower body workout and drank a yummy protein shake!)

sign up for these shenanigans. the more the merrier.


1. what is your favorite holiday? christmas. hands down.

2. do you loveee or hateee V day? thoughts? discuss. i don’t really love or hate it, marshall and i celebrated it big time the first year we were together, spent lotsa $$$ on gifts.. realized that was ridic and now we don’t do anything. last year we hung out at home and made dinner and cuddled with the pups! that is what i love most.

okay, gotta jet! send me your info and let the secret bloggie valentine love begin!

Love this idea! emailing you now! my favorite holiday is christmas just because I get to spend a lot of time with my family and the people I love! and I actually really do like valentines day! Who doesn’t love a holiday that is all about love?

Love this idea! Favorite holidays are Christmas, Mardi Gras, and St Patty’s day!

Great idea!! Emailing you right away.

My favorite holiday is Christmas, by far.

I’m ok with V-day, I mean I DO think it is a “Hallmark holiday”, but it is nice to celebrate with those you love- not just bfs/gfs, but family and friends too!!
