A week ago our new baby Alice was baptized, and after the dunking we invited our family, neighbors and some friends over to our home for a small celebration. As the woman of the hour was our a ten week old baby girl, I couldn’t resist frilly, feminine treats. We served sparkling rosé, loads of pink rose-topped cookies and the most popular item was a big basket of pink chick PEEPS 5-packs on which we placed a sign:
Please take one in honor of our Alice Elizabeth, just hatched!
Charlie and Eve were very impressed that our down-home summer lunch had a favor for guests and with our dorky wit (“They’re baby chicks, “just hatched” and Alice is a baby, get it, get it?”).
All of the attendees were totally impressed that we had PEEPS, when it wasn’t a holiday. They wanted to know if I saved them from Easter?
And thus I was excited to perform one of my first jobs as a PEEPS Ambassador and explain that PEEPS are available any old time, just head over to the fantastic PEEPS website or to our nearby PEEPS store at National Harbor. Because those baby christening PEEPS were fresh, baby.
And then we had to show the, er, peeps at the party the other cool stuff we picked up from the online store.
Eve has the cutey cute girls’ t-shirt (she’s wearing it in the picture above) that says “Imagine World Peeps”. Charlie’s says “Chicks Dig Me.” My comfy PEEPS pajama pants make me so happy when I pull them on at night time – they are incredibly flattering in a Marcia Brady bell bottom way. And even Alice has a onesie.
PEEPS is not just a company that makes stuff to fill Easter baskets, plastic pumpkins or Christmas stockings. They have a big ol’ online candy store AND a great retail place for fun PEEPS wear for your person, or PEEPS items for your home, office and playroom, and they’re open year-round.
