Sweet Little Meringue Chicks for Easter

Sorry for the lack of posts this week.  I had a last minute trip out of town and just before I left, I had to change hosting companies because my original host, let’s just leave it with they’re really horrible and where I am right now is much better for everyone. :)

I’ll get into the trip stuff next week.  But I had to share these cute little meringue chicks that I spotted at a little candy shop on my trip.  These didn’t come from the shop…they would have been in a million pieces (truth be told, I would have eaten them and you would be looking at a picture of crumpled cellophane – I have yet to meet a meringue I didn’t like).

I thought these would be so cute tucked into Easter baskets.  But then, as I was putting them together I realized that these would be sooooo cute for baby shower favors.  I know that everyone is into those little decorated cupcakes, but I think these are much cuter and an easy recipe to make.  I suppose I should give full disclosure here: I have only been to one baby shower – EVER and I have never changed a diaper.  I won’t give you my age, but suffice it to say I should have been to and done plenty!  I have been told I send the best baby shower gifts though.  So that’s got to count for something right?

I hope you’ll forgive me, but I just have a tiny bit of relationship advice today…instead of the longer versions I have been doing.

Relationship Advice

If your significant other is going on a long trip, tuck little cards or notes into their suitcase (not into their clothes…this could prove to be embarrassing if it were to fall out in front of their friends or work colleagues).  These little things make them feel like they are home even when they’re not.  Parents do this all the time for their kids when they go away…we really don’t change that much when we become adults.  We still like those touches of familiarity.  My husband will be out of the country for his birthday and with all of his meetings and the time difference I won’t be able to call him, so I tucked a birthday card into his suitcase and marked it so that he shouldn’t open it until his birthday.

Aw, how sweet of you to tuck the notes into your husband’s bag. Maybe this sounds odd, but I can’t wait to do that kind of stuff for my family :)

These ducks are adorable. Great idea!
