Peeps are everyones favorite candy at Easter time. I love seeing all the colorful birds and bunnies lining the store shelves. Peeps have come a long way though demo just the colorful marshmallow treats. They now come in Chocolate, chocolate covered, Party cake and more.
They were all very good. My kids have been enjoying them and can’t wait to have more in their Easter Baskets. I loved the chocolate covered Peeps, I think that would be my favorite. The milk chocolate egg with a peep inside was good, but the peep inside was stale and hard as a rock. The Peepsters are so easy to put in Easter eggs for egg hunts. Plus they taste so good.
Being a mother is hard no doubt, but when it comes to making sure you can provide for your kids it’s the world.
I usually don’t write anything to personal on my blog, but this topic I am sure a lot of people can relate to.
My husband is a graduate student and that leaves us on a strict budget every month for bills and groceries. It’s hard and I spend as much time as I can clipping coupons and trying to save money everywhere.
This morning I went grocery shopping and just wanted to throw up in the store and cry. I couldn’t believe how much prices have gone up on things that we use everyday.
A gallon of milk 2 weeks ago was $3.99 today the price was $4.19. The soy milk I have to buy for my husband and son (lactose allergies) was $3.69 for a quart now $4.99. I now that is not that big of a jump but still when you are on a strict budget, it’s enough to make you sick.
Not to mention there have been very few deals on meats and seafood.
How does this government expect us all to survive?
Caught your attention? Good. The embarrassing will come in a while. LOL!
When my kids were younger we bought them bikes, but when they outgrew the little ones we never had money to buy new ones. Although my son has one, but he bought it with his own birthday money.
So it has been about 2 years since my oldest has peddled a bike. My middle daughter doesn’t know how to ride a bike. It made me feel really bad since she will be turning eight next month.
So I finally caved in and went out and bought them bikes. My daughter is still having a little trouble learning, but she is getting there with training wheels of course. Baby steps. (So some pics of them riding around).
I myself have not peddled a bike in over 10 years, and I have always been small enough to fit in the kids ride on cars etc. So I thought what the heck. Let me see if I can ride my daughters 20″ bike.
Little did I know that while I was trying she grabbed my camera and started filming. I feel like such a dope, it was so much work for me. She told me I have to post the video on my blog. So what the heck, I don’t embarrass easy.
