HAPPY VALENTINES DAY AND THE WINNER IS.......

First, of all I am a nerd and loved my red shirt today for V-day.  I felt cool at school today.  I guess it may be time to clean my room and I have puffy cheeks in the morning, that is normal right?!?! Or maybe my ice cream sundae(S) went straight to my cheeks.  I guess I shouldn't have had that third bowl and half the whipped cream can.

If you hate my cheesiness and you are sick of me than please skip this post, back to recipes, candy and sweaty workout pictures tomorrow.


Dear Valentine,
IMG_0251.JPG
(Picture from Valentines Day 2 years ago at Sundance)

Billy, I just wanted to tell you that you are the best thing that has ever happened to me.  You make me want to be a better person and to treat everyone around me with kindness the way that you do. You are the most hard-working, fun-loving, compassionate, hot, hilarious person I know.  Thank you for putting up with my weirdness and being my number one fan and supporter.  I love everything about you!


------------------------------------------------------------------------
I do want to talk about something serious......I want to validate the fact that Holiday's are not easy and happy for everyone.  Some days we feel lonely and depressed because the fact of the matter is that we are alone sometimes.  Believe me, I had plenty of lonely V-day's.  I was ALWAYS the girl getting dumped before I met Billy and I spent many nights crying because I felt so alone.  Heck, I had a boyfriend that was cheating on me for 2 months before I found out.  It take's going through a million losers before you find the good ones:)


Remember that valentines day isn't just about having a bf/gf/wife/husband etc.  It is about celebrating love and the blogging community is one of the most loving groups of people I have ever associated with.


So, I guess what I am trying to say is that if you are having a hard day today and you feel alone...will you email me? I am here for you and I would love to be email pen pals.   We can be valentines K?!?!  I will even send you some chocolate's if you give me your address (sorry if that sounds creepy)!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Time for a winner!!!! And the winner to the giveaway is.....ha, ha you have to watch another movie muhahaha!!






---------------------------------------------------------------------------


My workout is after school today.....we had to move the treadmill to another room because the people below us probably didn't want to hear my pounding feet and Linkin Park at 5 a.m.  I will be running my heart out before dinner:)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Did you have any delicious V-day candy today?
-Way too much.  Those darn students know the key to my heart.


Do you decorate your house/apartment for holiday's?
-No, but I want to....will someone please come teach me how!!


Since we are in the love theme....what is your favorite Chick Flick or Love Song?
-'A Walk to Remember' and 'A Cinderella Story' (with Hillary Duff ha) are my favorite chick flick and my favorite love song is Jack Johnson 'Better Together.'

Great post! I am enjoying my single days. I bought myself a bottle of wine and some chocolate covered strawberries. I plan to curl up on the couch, watch the Bachelor, and enjoy wine and strawberries all by my self!

Chick flick - When Harry Met Sally
No love song speaks to me at the moment.

Aweee I can't wait to find my husband one day! Girl I am so sorry about the jerkoff that cheated on you for two months, I bet you a million bucks you were WAY prettier than him:)

I love valentine's day, it reminds me of being a kid in elementary school and having shoebox "mailboxes" for our candy and valentimes.

Slash I love flannel giiirl! Where did you find that shirt?!

Oh and fave chick flick - DEFINITELY A Walk to Remember! Why are we twinnies..and duh I will email you if I am sad and start to hate boys

YOU are toooooo cute!! I JUST posted on how Spencer and I met in honor of V-day--loved your heartfelt words to Billy.

Chick Flick = Notebook (too obvious?)

I am ready to eat a box of Hot Tamales that I got from Spence! And, dessert will happen for all 3 meals today!! :)

So you are the cutest thing that every happened to the blogging world. Loved how you chose your winners. :)

I love 27 Dresses. Best chick flick eva'!

I attempted to decorate for V-Day. But all I managed was a heart-shaped wreath that I made and hung outside my door.

Cherry flavored 3 Musketeers. Mmmhmm.

The part about emailing you if someone is feeling lonely almost made me cry - that is the sweetest thing I've ever read! Happy Valentine's Day to you!

What a sweet post! My sweet mommy got me my favorite triple chocolate toffees from our candy store here in town so you can bet I had a few of those today! I did decorate this year but only because I have 2 little boys that love decorations. They were so excited for Valentine's Day when they woke up and saw all the decorations:). I just went to the Dollar store and got some cute stuff and decorated our kitchen area. Have fun running!

Even though I didn't win I still love this.
Such cute kiddos!
I had a good healthy ammount of candy. I think that YOU of all people can appriciate that!
I have a christmas tree... And that's it...
As far as Chick flick's go- you can never go wrong with a classic like Dirty Dancing- or something new like Twilight (oh no!)
Happy Valentines Day!

Happy valentine's day! Hope you have a great day...

Favorite chick flick- I think I'll have to go with The Holiday, or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, or... I like them all!

(Great way to pick your giveaway winner, so cute!)

I just wrote a post about this the other day. I may not have a man in my life right now, but it doesn't mean that I can't have a day full of friends, smiles, miles and chocolate!

And I'm not as big of a fan of chick flicks as I am of chick lits. I love curling up with a good cheesy, corny, sappy, romantic book. I feel all cozy and warm inside :)

Finding your blog was, without a doubt, the highlight of my day. To the point where I cried a little bit.
... I wish I was kidding.

Me = ex-fat-kid turned eating-disordered-university-student turned fitness-freak turned marathon-runner (only once, so far, but you've made me want to do it again!), turned... something.

Something/someone who is slowly learning to exercise for fun (egads!) and accept that food owns my soul. And that both these things are A-OK!

You've also reignited my secret, long-time-lurking desire to be a teacher... uh oh.

Anyway, thanks for kicking booty. Rock on! And happy V-day. My boyfriend also rocks, and gives me giant slabs of expensive cheese every Valentine's Day.. so I have some important business to attend to.

Well, DARN! I guess I have to go buy myself some lotion =D !!
Congrats to the winner! Cute video, too- made me smile.

So YES!! I do want to meet you in Boston, but I think you have one more day there than I do. I fly in Fri and out Tues. I am sure there will be some good opportunity for crazy visiting and maybe even a post-race celebration (no stairs though).

Getting excited! 62 days left....I put a countdown on my blog today =D

Good to know the answers to #3. Because basically I watch them whenever I have a sleepover. Even if it's just me. They're my go-to chick flick/ love movies.

My favorite love song is You and Me by DMB. It gets me every single time.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I didn't have any vday candy... yet. I am about to have Sweettart Hearts.

I decorate for Christmas but no other holidays. I like decorating!!

Chick flick is DEFINITELY The Notebook!!!

I sadly am without my Valentine and without Candy, and not even remotely near my house at this time. :(

My favorite chick flick is The Notebook and my favorite song is "Chasing Cars". It almost makes me cry everytime.

I always love your videos! You and Billy are like the perfect couple!

 
At February 14, 2011 at 5:57 PM , OpenID nanosandc said...

I already told you that you and Billy are so cute you should sell toothpaste!

Totally agree, you sometimes need to kiss a load of frogs before you get to your prince. My pastor told me, (and she is the bestest person ever) that you can let Jesus be your valentine till God brings that special person. It was so cheesy but two days after she said that, I met my husband.

My fav love song is Kiss The Girl from the Little Mermaid. I wlaked out of the church to that song. I love LOVE ACTUALLY.

There are too many to count-The Notebook was good. I don't know. I love love :)

I wanted to wear a toga to work and look like Aphrodite but my boss said no :(

You're too cute!
*I totally indulged in hmmm, heart-shaped cutout cookie, cupcake and chocolate... too much?! Back to diet tomorrow...
*I decorate for every holiday! Love it, but hate the work of packing it away every time.
* Fav Chick flick... How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

 
At February 14, 2011 at 6:01 PM , Blogger Caroline said...

Chick flick: impossible to pick one, I am addicted to those: Nothing Hill, Sleepless in Seattle, you got mail, the notebook, four wedding and a funeral.

Song: If ever I could love by Keith Urban..

did you see my post today? There is a picture of my family and Keith Urban in this week's country weekly magazine..that is crazy!!

You look fabulous in your red! I ran in my pink sports bra today to get into the spirit. With a purple shirt. :) I've had some delicious chocolate today and more in a little while for dessert. You know I love A Walk to Remember - I'm not sure if it gets cheesier than that, but I can't resist. xoxo

Favorite love movie: When Harry Met Sally - all the little montages of the old people talking about how they met...<3 <3

 
At February 14, 2011 at 6:21 PM , Blogger Stephanie said...

We decorate for Christmas and a teeny bit for halloween, but I have a feeling once we get married and move into our bigger house I might be more inclined to decorate.

I love all chick flicks- always, all of them! I am also a big chick-lit book reader- think chick-flicks in text format, so great!

 
At February 14, 2011 at 6:27 PM , Blogger Crystal said...

ah!! Just had to comment- Jack Johnson's Better Together was my wedding song!! My first date with my husband we went mini golfing. However, when he came to pick me up he found my guitar and started playing it and I heard it upstairs and I seriously died! Thus it became our song :-)

 
At February 14, 2011 at 6:33 PM , Blogger my little celebration said...

I've been having some seeeerious sugar cravings today, probably because everyone's blogs are filled with chocolate overload and cupcakes galore. So, I've had three cookies, a handful of chocolate and will be having a little ice cream sundeeee later. Hooo-ray.

Ha, I can just see you having a ball on your treadmill. Hope you have fun with your best birthday gift ever! And I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day.

Cha chow,

My favorite chick flick is probably Love Actually, it's got a little something for everyone :)

p.s. my dog didn't freak out at your video today, you're growing on her lol

Not the best day for me -- finding my Mr. RightForMe seems to be in a stalled pattern these days :(

However, I got awesome hugs from my nephews, and nothing sucked today, so I call it a good day :)

Happy belated birthday -- computer problems have kept me away for a bit.

And, in the spirit of sharing the love, you sounded super happy and looked really cute in that "winner" video. :)

My totally awesome husband had lunch with me at my favorite place. I have to work until 11 tonight, so he brought my son up here with pizza for dinner! I am so lucky. I had no candy, but I did take a rest day from training...my V-Day pressent to myself. And yeah for you for Boston tickets!! I wish I could go.

2. I love how you picked the winner!! So cute :)
3. Linkin Park is my favorite band ever (I have seen them in concert 5 times) and I love you even more now that I know you listen to them while you run.

Thank you so much for your sweet post. You brightened my day right now. I wasn't alone; I spent the evening with a friend of mine, watching tv, drinking wine, and eating pizza. But it feels pretty hard right now, after having a few really nice Valentine's Days, to be back to the lonelier ones. It's nice to be reminded anyway, that we have a caring community out here. :-)

Happy Valentine's Day, you cutie!

My current favorite love song is "Marry Me" by Train. I melt whenever I hear it, something about it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Favorite chick flick is "Sex in the City" #1. I almost NEVER watch a movie more than once, (short attention span), but I've watched SITC at least 20 times.

I'm glad you have such a sweet Valentine to share your life with! My man is the keeper of my heart too :)

Ah Jack Johnson...we had so many of his songs at our wedding. I love Ben Harper's Forever too! I love the movie Knotting HIll, Love Actually...oh, I'm not thinking of the others. We had some really yummy fondue and the dessert was to die for. I thought of you actually as I was dipping my strawberry into this cheesecake fondue. Do you like cheesecake actually? Can't remember your other question..darn...okay, sheesh, took a few minutes to scroll all the way up there...yes, kind of but our decorations are very 5, 3 and 1 year old like. :)

Very funny video haha! The kids are adorable and you look gorgeous.

My favourite chick flick...I suppose Notebook. And the funny thing is that there is a couple, friends of my grandfather who had a similar story. The man had Alzheimer and his wife wrote everything in a notebook and was reading it to him. He died in January and his wife 'followed' him one month later. Although I knew the story I never thought it was really romantic until I saw the movie.
So life has great love affairs, we just not notice them sometimes.

I would love to be pen pals with you! My Valentines Day was a bit lonely, but my students bought me a million boxes of sweet tarts so that cheered me up. Being alone isn't always a bad thing. It just hurts a little during the holidays.

Hey Janae!

Been reading your blog for a while now (one of my faves) and the comment on you asking people to email you to be their valentine was just too cute!!

You really show what a lovely sweet person you are. Keep up the ace blogging :D

Such a cute winner video :) Such a sweet post to the hubs and I had to meet a lot of not so great boys before I met my special one. Hope you had wonderful valentine's

Janae, seriously, you are probably the sweetest person I "know." Thank goodness I found your blog. I know I've told you that it brightens my day every day, and it's so true! Just think of how many lives you touch! Fantastic!

You really are an inspiration to others! Keep it up, girlie! Love it!

Happy Valentine's Day! I told my boyfriend about your new treadmill - he was quite impressed!! :)

I ate chocolate covered fruit and lots of Lindt truffles! I think a few sugar cookies may have slipped in there, too.

I don't decorate for all of the holidays (mostly just Thanksgiving and Christmas) but I DO always buy the holiday m&ms and put them in bowls around my house. I say I'm being festive but my bf says its just another way for me to eat m&ms. He might be right.

Janae!

I have a treadmill/vibram Q! :) (not totally unrelated)
Do you run on your treadmill in your five fingers? and did you find that when you were getting used to your five fingers they hurt your heels at all?

Sorry this is so late! (A whole day... geeeez.) I definitely mealed on some Dove dark chocolate yesterday and Luke got me orchids, which are my fave. It was a relaxing night!

Wonderful post! I basically love all chick flicks, but it's hard to go wrong with Love Actually.

love the way you picked your give-a-way winner!!

Nothing like running at 5am while listening to Linkin Park! You are my kind of girl. :-)

I hate that my work computer blocks your videos. :(

I had no candy whatsoever yesterday! Pam 1, Valentine's Day 0! Take THAT Valentine's Day calories!

I put up a Christmas tree, but that is the extent of my holiday decorating. I think my mom burned me out on it when I was little. She decorated for EVERYTHING and not just a little bit!

Hmmm.... favorite chick flick... that's a hard one. Probably The Notebook. Makes me cry every single time. Nights in Rodanthe was really good too.

As i read that last question, i thought you asked "Whats your favorite Chick Fila Love Song?" And i thought, what the heck? Chick-fil-a has love songs?!

I know the singles comment was directed at everyone, but it really meant a lot to me and made me tear up. You are such a sweet person for caring for others you don't even know. And I'm going to try to make my blog posts less depressing :)

I ate waaaay too much candy. My mom's a teacher and she's allergic to chocolate so I get it all!

I decorate either for seasons or for holidays. I like doing seasonal decorating because you use flowers and natural stuff and it looks prettier to me.

My favorite chick flick is the SATC movie and Bride Wars because the similarities of me and my best friend to the 2 main characters are uncanny!

Better together is my favorite too!! And my fave movie is The Story of Us. Probably not the world's most popular movie, but I can't get enough of it.

Let me tell you about my lovely dating history! I was always alone in high school and it never really bothered me. No one really wanted to be my boyfriend, not until college and then I have had a valentine ever since even if it has just been a friend who has gone out for ice cream with me! It really is about the people you love in your life!! I am enjoying my copious amounts of vday candy right now! I am spoiling my dinner!

I just wanted to say how sweet and thoughtful you are (sorry if that sounds creepy!). You always sound so kind and bubbly and happy and reading your blog everyday makes me smile :) So thank you for that! You totally rock and I really hope we can meet up in Boston in April!!

I am not sure how I missed this post. The video and the way that you picked out the winner with your nephew and nieces is awesome! Too cute!!
It was really sweet of you to talk about the other side of valentines day too. I seriously can't stand this holiday, but I WANT to love it! :D My family is great, and that is what I focused on Monday. That kind of love. If I had seen this post on Monday I might have just emailed ya!! Super cool of you. :)
Glad you got lots of candy from your students!! Sounds like you picked the right profession!
