So, here’s something extra-super cool!! Hershey’s is donating $10 to the Children’s Miracle Network for every blog participating in their BETTER BASKET BLOG HOP.  Shakira gifted me with a basket.

All you have to do is…

* Copy and paste these rules to your blog post.
* Create a blog post giving a virtual Easter Basket to another blogger – you can give as many Virtual Baskets as you want.
* Link back to person who gave you an Easter Basket.
* Let each person you are giving a Virtual Easter Basket know you have given them a Basket.
* Leave your link at BetterBasket.info/BlogHop comment section. You can also find the official rules of this Better Basket Blog Hop, and more information about Better Basket with Hershey’s there.
* Hershey’s is donating $10 per each blog participating to the Better Basket Blog Hop to Children’s Miracle Network (up to total of $5,000 by blog posts written by April 4th, 2010).
* Please note that only one blog post by each blog url will count towards the donation.

As The Zen Of Motherhood (and to quote her verbatim,) “I’m tagging you ALL — let’s raise some money for the kids!”

Just put up your post by midnight, Eastern Time on April 4th. (April 4th — which just happens to be this Jannie’s birthday!!)   :)


And thank you, Hersheys!!

    She’s a cutie.

    Virtual or not, Easter baskets are always fun to peek into and poke around. I scanned your basket looking for some marshmallow peeps, before I realized it’s a Hershey’s exclusive.

    Talon!! Ah, thanks. She is pretty cute, yes!

    J.D. I hope you get everything you want in your Easter Basket, extra Peeps.

    Vered!! Thanks!

    Mama Zen! Ahh, thanks!

    Anne!! I was so impressed with your Easter post today! :) Beautiful girls.

    Jingle!! Have you ever seen a dog kissing a frog? Down by the bay?? :)

    Lance!! Big ears — all the better to hear your lovely singing with!! Sippity doo-dah, zippity day. :)

    Tess!! I do love my chocolate on Easter. Kelly’s 3-lb bunny might get some extra chunks munched off it — she better keep an eye on him! Interview questions!! Yes. soon, very soon.

    Souldose! Thanks so much. Hope you are well today??

    Jingle!! Thanks, I loved the purple one. You did so much work on that post, and awards. you are amazing, like magic.

    William!! Thanks! You can snag you some of those ears too, they are inexpensive.

    Patricia!! A silent weekend — that sounds very peaceful and a time for growth. Always April 4th, come rain , shine bunnies or not.

    Davina!! Thanks for tweeting! I did notice there are over 450 comments on that Hershey’s post, so they should hit that 500 blog posts.

    Jaymie!! Thats’ so awesome — I’m sure it’ll hit 500 very soon,if not already by the time I post this comment. What a worthy cause!

    Snaggle!! Well, I tried to think of something for Paige’s “Stupid First” post, but I drew a total blank, so this Hershey’s Blog Hop seemed a natural way to go!! Happy Easter to you, my dear!! Taxes — yuck! Hope you get a big refund, tho!!

    Jingle!! Happy Friday too! I hope it is joyous and wonderful for you!!

    Yay!!! I just visited the Hershey’s blog-hop site, and it looks like the quota has been met — 504 comments over there, so I guess it’s a raging success!!

    Ana!! I hope you have a blessed weekend too over there in your beautiful country of daffodils and singing birds. Yes, I did look at your poem yesterday, but have not yet commented. I was linking you up on my new “18 Reasons To Love This Blog” page!!

    LL Cool Joe!! Hey, great to see you again. Have a great one yourself, I know you guys get quite a long school break. The kids, I mean, of course. Have a wonderful time!!

    Hey, Sweet Daisy!! It seems as tho the 500 blog goal has been met. Hmmn, should I post again soon, or take a little 2-day break and let my Easter Bunny sit atop, and try to get around and caught up wtih more blog reading. Hmn, blogging decisions, blogging decisions. :)

    Sean!! yo — Happy easter to you too! I hope E. Bunny finds you and you get a big BIG basket full of all kinds of goodies!! :)

    Vikum!! She was very happy that day, at all the goodies she got, no candy at that age, of course. Little toys and things to further develop her brain. :)
