Who says Easter is only for Kids?

I love Easter!
I love the memories of celebrating Easter as a child. I love egg hunts and planning egg hunts. I love Easter decorations and I love PEEPS (you know, those sugar-covered marshmallows. mmm....)

But....I can't go any further without saying why else I love Easter. On that day, I celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. What a magnificent miracle to know that my Savior lives. I almost wish that the commercialized version of Easter which we celebrate today was known as "Spring-Day" or something (clever, I know)....so that we could focus on the true meaning of the Easter holiday on Easter and celebrate spring, easter bunnies, and egg hunts on a different day. But, I can't change the world---so I recommend celebrating Easter on the Friday or Saturday BEFORE Easter Sunday. That's all I have to say about that.

As with any holiday, Easter can be a fun excuse to do something for your love. I don't have kids yet, but there's no WAY I'm ever gonna let Easter go by without an egg hunt, easter candy, or something festive of the sort at my house! Even if you do have kids, there's no reason why you can't do something fun and simple for your hubby, too!

Here are some ideas:

*Determine a budget to spend on each other for your easter baskets or egg hunt.
Hubby & I did this:
We each had $10 to spend. We could choose to do either some kind of hunt or a basket (or a mix of both).
He did a full on egg hunt for me around our yard and then had yarn leading to different places where my "big items" were hidden (like a package of Oreos, a bottle of Sunkist, a biggie-pack of gum--all favorites of mine)

She did an egg hunt around the house. I tried to put unique things in his eggs (sure candy was in most of them) but, one of them had a lingerie bottom (that was tiny and folded to fit in the plastic egg...as a tease for the top). Another had a love coupon .

*If you don't want the extra candy in your house, make your hunt an egg love hunt--In the eggs, put reasons why you love them. Hide & Hunt.

*If you don't have a basket, just put some plastic "grass" in a regular envelope with a gift card hidden in the grass. Write on the envelope: "Easter hunts aren't just for kids! Hunt for your prize in the grass!"....or something like that.
*Dye eggs together---this can be a lot of fun. Be playful and wear clothes you don't mind getting stained. Make a competition out of it.

*There are plenty of places online that sell sexy easter bunny costumes--but they can be pretty pricey! Go to the dollar store, find some cute bunny ears, wear some white lingerie---and he'll get the idea. As a prop, use an easter basket filled with plastic eggs. Inside one of them, you can put one of those mini KY massage oils... Be creative.

How's that for
making romance out of a non-romantic holiday?

LOVE your blog...we do have two kids and it's hard to try to make things special for both my husband and the kids! Your website has inspired me and given me great ideas to remind him how important he is to me!

PS - Easter is my favorite holiday too, because Jesus lives!!
