#DIY Light Up Your Easter Egg Hunt With Positive Messages, Memories and HERSHEY’S Treats #HersheysEaster

Light Up Your Easter Egg Hunt 
With Positive Messages, Memories 
and HERSHEY’S Treats
Every year when Easter rolls around I cannot help but get a twinge of excitement 
 deep within my soul. Being a mom of three children of all ages, I have been 
snapping on the bunny tail and floppy bunny ears for years and years. I find the 
fascination of a child who believes in the magic of the Easter Bunny to be one
 of the most amazing experiences of my life. Along the path of parenting I have come up
with numerous traditions to create family memories. One of my favorite has to
 be the tradition of our Bunny egg hunt that takes place after dinner on Easter Sunday when
the sun goes down. Our official Easter Bunny(me) came up with this idea a
few years ago and it has been a big hit ever since.

It’s quite simple and really amazes the kids every time. Who can resist anything that lights up?

We start with a Memory Jar (we always have a memory jar on the counter) which has a
 constant flow of funny memories or something special that a family member did
 during the year. I look through the strips and use them as the bunny’s inspiration to write
Bunny notes to fill the eggs with.
Example: #1
The Easter Bunny loved when you made a card for you friend that was in the hospital.
Example #2
The Easter Bunny always hops higher when you read a book at bedtime!
Example #3
The Easter Bunny chuckled when Adam had on two different sneakers.
Example #4
Remember to eat your carrots and other vegetables just like the Easter Bunny!
Example #5 
The Easter Bunny wants to remind Dad not to leave his coffee on top of the van!
You can personalize the Bunny Notes to anything you would like. 
My older children love this, too. They are good sports and play along but honestly
I think they do enjoy some of the funny notes the Easter Bunny leaves inside the eggs.
Now, for the light up part of the egg- I get the light-stick bracelets at the dollar store.
They are packed as 18 in a pack so for $2.00 I have enough for 36 eggs!
Makes for an awesome light show. 
Final step is to add a delicious HERSHEY’S treat or two to the light up egg.
In our family by the time Easter dinner is over everyone is just hanging around. As soon as the 
sun goes down hubby or I sneak out to the yard and place the eggs all over.
Then we direct everyone to the yard and fun begins. I will miss the magic when
 I don’t have a bunny believer in the house any more, but I have a feeling this tradition
will carry on for years to come.

It brings me right back to my childhood- remembering waking up Easter morning to running to see if the Easter Bunny left me some of those delicious little yellow chickies. Back then there was not a big variety of Peeps available. Now a days my children feast on Chocolate covered PEEPS® , flavored PEEPS®, Bunnies, and even Peeps plush!

peepseastercupcakesIn addition to bunny basket making, our family loves to create baked treats with our Peeps®. Every holiday we use them in a way that makes everyone happy that tests them out. This year we baked cupcake baskets and nests and adorned them with yellow Peeps® chicks. They are just regular yellow boxed cupcakes. We frosted them, put on some green sprinkles, added a few chocolate eggs and topped them off with chicks! The baskets we used some marshmallow twine. What do you think? I absolutely love the way they turned out. I also love that our family is making memories in the kitchen baking together and keeping Peeps® as part of our holiday tradition. That brings me back to my mom and I baking together and the cherished memories I have of those precious days. Hoping from the bottom of my heart that my children continue those same traditions with their own children some day. We love you Peeps®. Happy Easter! Check out all things Peeps® here:

New York International Auto Show– Spotlight on Nissan and Ticket Giveaway! #GNONYIAS16 #GNONYIASNissan

As a mom of three, I find myself constantly behind the wheel of our car– whether it’s dropping the kids off at school in the morning, picking them up in the afternoon, going grocery shopping, or covering whatever life throws at us, I feel like I spend more time driving than I do at home! And with the New York International Auto Show right around the corner (it’s just two weeks away!) there’s no better time  to highlight two of the cars that fit my “driving mom” lifestyle the most, the Nissan Sentra and Nissan Altima. We’ve also got a giveaway for two tickets to the New York International Auto Show– read on for more about the Sentra and Altima, and details about how to win!

2016_Nissan_Sentra_062016 Nissan Sentra

The 2016 Nissan Sentra continues the brand’s “class above” style, and combines premium design and appearance with a roomy interior, advanced connectivity tools, and safety technology you can trust. The car features such exterior perks as a new front fascia, grille, fenders, hood and signature boomerang-shaped headlights, as well as chrome door handles and chrome window accents and available heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals. On the interior side of things, the Sentra boasts a brand new style of steering wheel (similar to the Nissan 370Z design), one of the largest interiors in its class (meaning ample legroom and a great trunk capacity– both major perks in my book!) and a beautiful new TFT-type (Thin Film Transistor) LCD flat panel display with higher resolution than previous LCD screens. Finally, as far as safety, the 2016 Nissan Sentra offers some of the best technology available, including Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), all of which are available on the Sentra this year for the first time ever.


2016 Nissan Altima

The 2016 Nissan Altima builds on five consecutive years of sales growth with an extensive redesign for this year’s model– including a new design, new driving feel. improved fuel economy, and a wide array of enhanced technology, connectivity, and safety features. The new Altima bears a brand new look that designers call “energetic flow,” with the front and rear sections featuring totally new designs and sheet metal, redesigned headlights, a new lowered muscular front fascia, a new rear fascia and bumper, and a new grille and bumper. The 2016 Nissan Altima a host of safety features like radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), and the class-exclusive Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW).

Both the 2016 Nissan Sentra and the 2016 Nissan Altima will be on display at the New York International Auto Show, which runs from March 25- April 3, 2016, and I am beyond excited to see these two car models there in person! I also hope I’ll see you there– make sure to click the following link and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway through SheBuysCars for your chance to win 2 tickets to the New York International Auto Show and a $150 Gift Card! Good luck!
