Georgia's First Easter Basket & A Giveaway


I had a really difficult time searching for items to include in an Easter basket for a baby.  My Easter baskets were always full of candy!  A few weeks ago I decided to make it bunny themed and slowly started collecting items.  Here's what she'll find when she wakes up in the morning:

  • Bunny ears - from the dollar bin at Target
  • Pink Easter hat to match the sash on her dress - a great find in the dollar bin at Target as I was going to pay whatever I needed to for a pink hat
  • Plush bunny - Found today at Hobby Lobby's 40% off sale, I just replaced the ugly ribbon around its neck with one I had at home (pink & green).  I really wanted to find an enormous stuffed bunny but she doesn't play with her dozens of stuffed animals at all, so I opted to just grab one last minute if I found a really cheap one.
  • Toothbrush and (all natural) infant toothpaste - she has EIGHT teeth now!!!
  • Biscuit & the Bunny book - she got Where is Love, Biscuit? for Valentine's day and loves it
  • Guess How Much I Love You book - she already has a Nutbrown Hare stuffed bunny
  • Annie's Organic bunny-shaped mac and cheese (two boxes - white cheddar & regular) -  one of my fave foods...if she doesn't love it Mommy will eat it!
  • Pink teething ring
  • Jelly Belly scented bubbles - lest you think the Jelly Belly bottle in there is edible!
  • Plastic eggs filled with Annie's Organic Cheddar Bunnies
  • Basket and monogrammed liner are from Marshmallow Dream - they were fantastic to work with; unfortunately, I mis-read the dimensions of the basket and thought I was ordering a bigger one and was a little disappointed when it arrived.  Oh well, all of her goodies fit into it perfectly!
  • I got an enormous bag of pink non-flammable grass, not the really shiny cheap looking stuff, at Arne's Party Supply for around $1.  I used it in this basket, her Egg Hunt basket and still have enough for another basket.
She also got a pair of cute My First Easter PJ's with ruffles on the hiney to sleep in tonight!

OK - so onto the giveaway.  A few days after I bought all of the Annie's bunny stuff for Georgia's basket, Annie's Homegrown contacted me about a giveaway.  I was happy to oblige since I was planning this post anyway.  

Annie's has started making the first-ever all-natural certified organic rising-crust pizza!  (How's that for a lot of descriptors and hypens?)  I was super excited to hear this because who doesn't love pizza - but I try to feed Georgia organic and natural foods as much as possible.  One thing I'm really concerned about is dairy products (since I read a long time ago that the added hormones can cause little girls to start their periods super early - not sure if it's true or not, but I don't want to take my chances!).  I clicked over to Annie's website and saw that the cheeses on the pizzas are from cows not treated with growth hormones - double yay!  

I have a coupon for one free Annie's Homegrown pizzas - and I just discovered that there are tons of $ off coupons to be had  on Annie's website.  If this Easter Bunny wasn't so tired, I'd move to the desktop computer and start printing!

If you want to win the Annie's pizza coupon, just visit the Annie's website & leave a comment letting me know which pizza you're going to try.  I'll choose a winner next Friday.

Disclaimer: Annie's sent a coupon so I could try the new pizza, although I haven't yet redeemed it.  I was otherwise not compensated in any way for this post.  All items were purchased with my own money.
