Welcome back readers!
According to all of your answers in the comments section, I clearly have not been trying enough “exotic” foods (no fried insects for me please, I prefer to think that maybe the food that I’m eating doesn’t already purposely have bug legs in there!) I didn’t think anything could ruin my love of eggs quite like that half developed “delicacy” does…also, fly larva? I need some ginger ale stat! Anyway, we have some winners who will be receiving a tasty gift basket that’s not filled with octopus, tongue, or insects! Congratulations to Ellen B (February 16, 2012 at 7:37 pm), Franklin (February 17, 2012 at 9:34 am), Amanda Vogel (February 17, 2012 at 10:37 am), Matthew Mckay (February 17, 2012 at 2:10 pm), and Tiffany S. February 23, 2012 at 10:17 am! Please send your name and shipping information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send out your gift baskets!
I don’t know if this is unique to the Midwest, but the weather channel informed me that tonight we have a “thundersnow” ready to hit the Chicagoland and suburban areas. For those of you lucky enough to not know what it’s like to live in the crazy weathered world of that Dennis Quaid movie, The Day After Tomorrow, a “thundersnow” is the mixing of a thunderstorm, heavy snow fall of up to 10 inches, and wonderfully strong winds that will ensure an extra 2 hours added to your commute! It will be gloom and doom tonight and probably tomorrow for sure. But by Sunday, I’m almost certain it will feel like middle of Spring. Seeing as I’ve already forgotten what the sun feels like and I’m prepping for my commute home driving at 10 mph, I thought we should take a look at our Spring Preview and dream about what it will be like to not wear a parka outside every day!
Spring means floral and pastels, the smell of fresh rain and dew on grass (I’m so close to breaking out into a Sound of Music song and dance right now). I won’t even mind the apparent community of 200 geese that live in the pond in my backyard making noise in the morning! Just looking at the bright colors and flowers on these gift baskets and gift tower is enough to remind me that Spring time is close.
Our Flowering Fields Sweets Gift Tower is bright and bouncy with its orange, yellow, pink, lime green and red colors popping out from a white background. Packed with delicious gourmet foods like Cheryl’s® Chocolate Chip Cookies, Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Squares, Harry London® Milk Chocolate Crispy Joys®, and more, the gift tower’s bright colors won’t be the only part of the gift to delight!
The Spring Has Sprung gift basket has enough in the title to make me excited for the upcoming months. Inside you’ll find delectable gourmet treats like Harry London® White Confection Pretzels with Pink Drizzle, a Daisy-shaped Sugar Cookie, Spring Pastel Taffy, Eurostyle Biscuits, The Popcorn Factory® Pink Berry Kettle Popcorn and more! Not to be outdone, is our Glorious Garden Sweets Box Gift Basket in similar Spring fashion. This gift basket is filled with the finest sweet and savory treats perfect for a fair Spring day (real or pretend!). Honey Wheat Pretzel Braids, Cheryl’s® Chocolate Chip Cookies, Dragonfly-shaped Sugar Cookie, Assorted Fruit Slices, Spring Pastel Taffy, Robert Rothschild® Chocolate Fudge Pretzel Dip, Tazo® Zen® Green Tea and more can be found in this beautiful Spring gift basket and enjoyed by all!

In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) tell me what you’re most excited for this Spring and we can all hope it comes back really soon together!
Have a great weekend with normal weather!
