Yea, it's finally here - the first official day of Spring!  Now we can look forward to beautiful flowers, trees budding, green grass and the best sound in the whole world after a nasty winter, the birds singing! And what a nasty winter it was here in Northern Kentucky.  I am more than ready for warmer weather!  However, I think someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that it's the first official day of Spring, because it's only 37 degrees here today!  What is up with that?  I will admit that the 10-day forecast doesn't look too bad with it warming up into the 60's and 70's next week.  I'm so ready to begin working in my yard and seeing the flower beds overflow with vivid spring colors. Easter will be here before you know it, only 23 more days until the Easter Bunny comes to town!  Do you know where your Easter Bunny costume is?  Easter is one of my favorite holidays, (1) because it brings to mind springtime, (2) the Easter Bunny runs a close second to Santa, and (3) who doesn't love to get a basket full of candy!   I have two favorite Easter candies that I just can not live without during the holiday - Whoppers malted milk ball eggs and Peeps.  My son Caden has taken my love of those wonderful marshmellow Peeps to a whole new level this year.  Every morning I find a Peeps chick or bunny on my desk (that was not there the night before) and I have a feeling Caden is the mystery Peeps man.   I haven't called him out on it yet because I know he loves to surprise me and I think it's adorable that he cares enough to surprise his mother every morning with her favorite candy.  Who am I to pass up a marshmellow bunny with my morning cup of coffee?  Did you see where they now have Chocolate Mousse flavored Peeps - there is a God! I did however notice that has the absolute cutest costume for infants size 12 - 24 months.  It's a yellow chick Peeps costume and if my children were younger you can bet they would have that costume.  But since they're a little too big to fit into it I'm just going to have to get one for my twin nephews (or two since they're twins).  They will look adorable as Peeps! has a huge selection of great Easter costumes and accessories for everyone!  Get yourself or someone you love a fun Easter costume today!
