yes, i know it's not even st. patty's day yet, but i'm a sucker for outside influence and thus, have already begun to think about the impending easter season.
easter is one of my favorite holidays (trailing only the fourth of july and xmas) mostly because i love easter candy more than pizza/sushi/and baby lions combined. (just to clarify: i don't eat baby lions...i just love them a lot. no crazy 'you shouldn't be eating baby lion' comments, 'k?)
peeps, cadbury creme eggs (nevermind i haven't been able to actually finish one in years), brach's malts and jelly beans.
damn....i've bout given myself a glorious sugar high already!
and though it may seem a sacrilege that the things i mainly cherish about a holiday that celebrates the resurrection of a savior, i have found some beneficial things to love about the spring festivus, as well.
you know those little plastic eggs that have started popping up in just about every store imaginable? well, guess what? those suckers can come in mad handy.
i like to use them to carry around little odds and ends that always get lost in the bottom of my purse or the creases of my make-up bag.
i.e. bobby pins, small change, mints, etc.
if you have little ones at home, the colorful eggs work well as snack containers for small goldfish shaped crackers and tiny chocolate bits emblazoned with random letters.
they're reusable and thus
....and hey, who doesn't like that?
