100 Awesome Things - #100 Peeps

I recently stumbled upon a website that lists 1000 awesome things. The list ranges from #942 - someone flashing their high beams at you when the fuzz is up ahead to #65 - Dads to #15 - Being a regular somewhere. 

My life has recently taken a few weird turns and there are big things in my life that I really can't control, so while the eggheads say to not sweat the small stuff, I am going to try to be thankful for the little things. 

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share with you 100 things, in no particular order, that I think are awesome. Hopefully it will inspire someone to be thankful for the little things when the big things get out of hand.

#100     Peeps

People fall into two categories of peep eaters. They either like them fresh out of the package, all smooshy and gooey or they like them as I refer to them, "aged."

I prefer them aged, with a week being perfect. Then, you pull its little tail off then its beak and then you pop the rest of it in your mouth. And I am talking about the little peeps not bunnies or anything else. 

When I was little, the Easter bunny not only came to my house, but he also stopped by my grandma's house. The bunny dropped a basket by my grandma's for me a week or so early, and thus aged peeps. It was in that basket that I first tasted the sugary marshmallow treat. 

Just one more thing that made visits to grandma's house special.
