Virtual Chocolate!!!

My best friend Pam at The Rest of the Journey gave me an Easter basket today!!  She left me a msg saying she had a present for me on her blog, and when I went over to see what it was, there was a picture of an Easter basket full of yummy chocolate.  My first thought was, "Oh I am SO going to beat her for mailing me a basket full of chocolate that she KNOWS I'm going to eat!!"  lol.  But as I read along, I realized it was a VIRTUAL Easter Basket....what a cute idea!!  This actually has some meaning behind it, too.  Hershey's is donating $10 per blog for every blog that participates in this blog hop, up to $7000, to Children's Miracle Network.

You can pass the basket on to as many as you like.  I have a hard time following rules with awards and such, but I'm posting them here and I'll actually follow them this time.  It would take me ALL NIGHT to notify everyone if I were to give it to everyone on my blogroll like I would LOVE to do, so I'm just going to pick 5 people.  I hope you enjoy your basket of Easter goodies, and more importantly, the meaning behind it.


•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 betterbasket blog hop, and more information about Better Basket with Hershey’s there.

•This started as a meme of Hershey donating $10 per each blog participating to the Better Basket Blog Hop to Children’s Miracle Network up to $5,000 – but after so many bloggers participating, Hershey decided to donate a total of $7,000 honoring the kindness of blogger community .
I'm giving a basket to these 5 lucky little bunnies:
Alix at Casa Hice
MB at Why the Weight?
Zaa at Zaababy-The Incredible Shrinking Woman
Leslie at Something Brilliant Is Brewing
Shelley at A Forty-Something's Weight Loss Journey
Enjoy your calorie-free chocolate ladies and keep the baskets hopping along!!!  :)

  3. You know, even a virtual Easter Basket tastes pretty good, if you lick the screen. Not saying I did or anything...

    Thanks so much, for the Hershey meme and the opportunity to play and pass it along. What a great charity.

    Happy Easter my friend. And have I told you lately that you look MAHvelous, dahling?

  4. Thank you, Tammy - this is the way I like an Easter basket - calorie-free, and I don't have to burn them off for Brad!

  5. How cute....although I hope I can clean the lick mark of my monitor!

  6. You know, that picture of goodies doesn't even bother me one bit. Now of course there are some things, and the mere mention of some, that DO seriously tempt me, but this isn't some of them amymore.

    Does Easter candy bother you anymore, Tammy?
