so there you have it. lots of bloggie love!

unfortunately, i know some of you have not yet received your secret bloggie valentine package. i would be happy to look into the situation~ please email me (janethabenson at gmail dot com) if that is the case and i will get my magnifying glass out and investigate! don’t worry, i have a basset hound. he is sure to crack any case.

no but seriously, let me know if you haven’t received anything.

sorry for two lame posts in a row! i have a lot on my mind~ i feel like i am coming down with a cold, expensive car problems, wedding planning (this part is fun!), house hunting, two new MAJOR laws passed that really screw us over in my industry and create mayjuh drama at work.. i have like seventeen headaches all rolled into one right now, but i am trying to grin and bear it. life is too short to be ornery~ it will all work out in the end :) don’t mean to be a downer.

for now, i’ve got a girls dinner to attend.

xo. janetha b.

oh.. i didn’t forget. click here to see who won the jamaican goods giveaway!!!

I think you need a week of work just to catch up on life, etc. Phew! What a month for you! I had a blast with the secret bloggie valentine. Thanks for letting me participate and THANK YOU MAMA B!! Hugs to her please!

Errign February 25, 2010 at 5:19 am

eek – sorry I am super lame and totally forgot to email you what I got!

The bloggie valentine was an awesome idea & I had so much fun!

Sorry about your car – hope it’s fixed up soon :)

eaternotarunner February 25, 2010 at 6:08 am

Sorry to hear about the car, yuck! All these package pictures are making me hungry ;-)

jenngirl February 25, 2010 at 7:19 am

haha I love that in probably 90% of those pictures is a jar of nut butter! We bloggies know where it’s at!

And your posts are NEVER lame. Have a good Thursday!

Paige @ Running Around Normal February 25, 2010 at 7:33 am

Secret Valentine overload! What awesome fun snackies! Such an awesome idea, Janetha :D Twas so fun participating.

lowandbhold February 25, 2010 at 8:11 am

Ack, that BS doesn’t sound like fun :( I hope your cold gets better, your car gets fixed rapidly, and your wedding plans go great! XOXO Janeeeetha :)

Angharad February 25, 2010 at 9:14 am

Sorry things are cray-cray for you lovely. I hate when weeks go that way – just a million things at a million miles an hour. Bah!
Liked seeing all that blogging loving though! May the rest of your week be full of nut butter, yoats and love xxx

ellie February 25, 2010 at 9:52 am

Not a lame post at all! I wish I had participated now…next time! I never recieved my Christmas secret santa thing and wasn’t blogging when this started so skipped out. Hmm. Maybe I’ll organise a mid-summer one…

Paije February 25, 2010 at 10:21 am

Eeee all the pics look awesome!! I’m soo glad I got to participate:) BUT my girl’s pics are not there!! Hopefully she got my package…silly Canada Post!!
That reeeally sucks about your car! I just had to replace a cam sensor or something in my car and it was $500 :( Hopefully the rest of your week gets better!
PS. Jocelyn you are soo cute too! And don’t worry, my food blog will be started SHORTLY!!! xx

Ashley February 25, 2010 at 11:01 am

I heard Utah is about to criminalize miscarriage.

That’s not what your job is about though right? Lol.

Susan February 25, 2010 at 12:08 pm

So fun to see what everyone got!! I wish I remembered to e-mail you. My “Romance” magnets were hilarious and a great gift idea.

Dude, didn’t you just buy your car?? Was it brand new? Under warranty? Hope it’s easy to fix and doesn’t turn into a bigger headache for you. That basset hound comment cracked me up. Have you ever seen The Great Mouse Detective? Aaanyways, chin up, tomorrow is Friday, hopefully you get some time to relax soon! xoxo

danica February 25, 2010 at 12:22 pm

So fun~ I LOVE that you have everyone share their pics so we could see all the creativeness! Thanks for hosting the exchange girl – it was so fun!

Hang in there – everything will work out soon!

Love ya ~ sending big hugs and some Cali sunshine your way!


Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine February 25, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Ahh I suck for forgetting to send you a pic! I love seeing everyone else’s loot, though. Looks like we all made out this Vday! Hang in there with all the stresses at work love!

RunToFinish February 25, 2010 at 12:48 pm

Emilyeatsclean February 25, 2010 at 2:26 pm

OMG… fun does that valentine’s day swap look?!?! Did you organize that??? I would love to participate in something like that!!! Please let me know details about something like that in the future.


BroccoliHut February 25, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Awesome goodies! I especially appreciate the Mini Clifs and Spirutein action:)

Jocelyn @ Peace.Love.Nutrition February 25, 2010 at 3:19 pm

Tamizn February 25, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Such a cool swap, thanks again x x

Erica February 25, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Thank you so much for hosting Secret Valentine- it was so much fun- I can’t wait to do it again!!Sorry about the car- blah! Hate car issues. We have to connect up- we keep missing each other ;)

mom February 25, 2010 at 9:01 pm

Yes what a fun exchange! I’m still munching on my caramel Dove candies, mmmmgood!! You are always thinking of fun things to do, love you so, so much!! x0x0

mom February 25, 2010 at 9:02 pm

P.S. I got that wrong, peanut butter filled Dove candies and Hershey caramels, as long as it’s chocolate, I’m good!!! xoxo

sophia February 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm

Aw, I wish I had participated, but I don’t have any cool places near me that I can buy goodies from…unless my exchange person wants chicharrones and jarred mole.
No post from the lovely Janetha is EVER lame!

Lauren February 26, 2010 at 4:50 am

Love the dresses! What if you did a mixture of all 3? I always love that look of different bridesmaid dresses in the wedding party. Always looks so classy if you can pull it off.

Have a good day hun!
