Say what?!  Details
HERE !! In summary, 14 bloggers (ahem, ME and 13 other awesome gals) are going to show you 14 days of ideas related to V-Day.  We all need idea, RIGHT!?!?  Then, you will link up with us to show your Valentine’s Creations.. and I’ve heard there’s an awesome prize associated, but you’ll have to check back to find out. Lots of sponsored gifts…. whoa!

ALSO!!!!!!!!  Have you gotten your PYP Challenge? How is it coming?  Any questions? I have only heard from maybe 3 of ya’ll…. {worried}….for those of you just stopping by….Ashley over at
Cherished Bliss is teaming up with me and Pick Your Plum to host a very fun party!! Details HERE!! STARTS FEBRUARY 1ST!!  Last shipment of items going out this week. 

I know this is the common theme lately to get TAGGED and I’ve been tagged.  {Not it!! Says the kid in me from the Not it!! games, remember those?
Angel tagged me….Grab the rules if you want to carry this game on. 
The Rules
1. You must post the rules. <—Voila! Done!
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
<—very strange, considering just a few days ago, I did write
facts about me… ELEVEN Of them.. I didn’t even know this was coming!! DONE!
3. Answer the questions the tagger (Angel) set for you in their post.

1.  What scares you?  Death is #1, bugs, heights, sometimes my own imagination!
2.  How did you name your blog? I knew our family would be growing when I started my blog and Life is a Journey, Right?  So, Erik and I got married 5.26.07 (hence the EST.) and we are on The Johanson Journey!
3.  Your dream guy when you were a child? Was it realistic? It was not realistic since it was a dream guy and I am assuming we mean celebrity… 1st person that comes to mind is Kirk Cameron. 
4.  Favorite movie of all time? Every movie I love is my favorite.. I’m the same about music, but first thought is Top Gun, Pretty  Woman, Sweet Home Alabama, Overboard…. there’s no way one movie could take the cake.
5.  Favorite Thing About Blogging?  Meeting new people, discussing life events and getting feedback that says I’m normal.
6.  Are you a Cat or Dog person?  I used to say both but in recent years, I’m all Dog.
7.  You’re a Superhero what is your power?  Pause life so I can get things done and still enjoy the world around me.
8.  What is your nickname? Mommy, Pup, Babe, JJ, G-Nut, Janet, Sweet Cheeks.. hah… okay, not sweet cheeks but the rest are true.
9.  What is your fondest childhood memory?  I wish I could isolate an event but honestly, I had a great childhood…. I was very lucky, even through being locked out of the house at the ripe age of 5 and being forced to go play when I didn’t want to, or the summer I had to wake up every morning at 8am to listen/read along to books by tape to help me in the following school year… I had good friends and good family.
10.  What song makes you smile just to hear it?  Any Journey song!

4. Tag 11 people and link them on your post. Um—YOU’RE IT! Done!
5. Let them know you've tagged them! Hello… YOU’RE IT!! Done!

Phew, that was a lot of talking…..

Can't wait to see the 14 days of love ♥

I love all your answers. I can relate to question 9.

Excited about 14 days and PYP!

Kirk Cameron was pretty dreamy, but I was all about Michael J. Fox.

Date Girl said...

I really need some valentines ideas, so I will be checking in!

Pup is an adorable nickname. Sweet Home Alabama is one of my favorite movies!

Nadine Hightower said...

I love Journey!!

You are bigger than a bug and You have a shoe! just step on it and move on. Bugs are not to be feared! bees and wasps different story. be quick and be accurate or run.

Impulsive Addict said...

I would LOVE some valentine's ideas! Yes please. But I'm already making one craft so don't ask me to make another one. I'll break open my bag again.

Kirk. Ah, yes. He was perfect. Him and Joey McIntire.

Interesting nicknames, G-Nut. <--This is what I will call you from now on.

Pretty Woman is in my top 3. LOVE it!

Thanks for linking up with us, friend! xoxo

Daisy said...

Can't wait to see it :)

Lucy said...

I love all those Movies!!! Great nicknames, I think my dream guy was Tom Cruise but it was so long ago I can't really remember,yikes!

Have fun getting ready for Valentine's Day!!

Emmy said...

Hey sweet cheeks! Oh pausing things would be awesome. Love Overboard! What a classic

Bethany said...

haha- Im THIS close to finishing my project to link up. Cranky teething baby cuts into crafting time :) I spent all this time today tagging you in this post but you already did it!

Anonymous said...

Are you worrying AGAIN???!!! lol

I got this! Project complete, I have it typed but gotta get my pics uploaded. Stop your worrying, yo!

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

We're kindred spirits! Kirk Cameron was probably my top dreamy guy too. Though Ralph Macchio and Corey Haim weren't far behind. :)

And obviously you're hinting that you want to be called Sweet Cheeks, so thus you will be.

I'm looking forward to the Valentine's posts!

Connie said...

I think I was too old for Kirk.

Shawn said...

I have several Valentine's Day things set out but would love to find some more cute things to add to them!

I have my PYP challenge letter sitting here, I promise I will do my very best to hold up to my end of the deal since you were so sweet to send me that adorable scarf that I have already worn a few times!

After reading answer # 10 I thought for sure your blog would have been because of them.

Thanks for linking up and if I forgot about the PYP challenge please remind me and forgive me!
