Ladies and Gentlemen . . . Prepare Your Peeps!


Well folks it’s Easter time and time for “Peep Jousting”.  Peep Jousting has been around for years and if you haven’t experienced it, you should really give it a try.  For those of you who have never participated in the spirited event here’s how to get started:

  1. Get some Peeps.  The chicks work better than the bunnies for some reason.  I think the bunnies get “top-heavy”;
  2. Place two Peeps on a paper plate;
  3. Place a toothpick into each Peep’s chest (there is a strategy to this and you need to do it a few times to be good at it);
  4. Put your Peep plate in the microwave (carefully so your Peeps don’t fall over and become disqualified);
  5. Set your microwave to 10-15 seconds.  This may be too much, but you have to watch anyway so judge the time by what happens.  Once the microwave begins the Peeps begin to “joust”.  They get huge, then deflate, and if left in too long catch fire so look out for that hazard;
  6. As your Peeps “joust” you will see one of the toothpicks go through another of the Peeps thereby “defeating” the other Peep;
  7. The winner plays all of the people in the room (with new Peeps each time, of course) until one winner is crowned;
  8. Do something special for the Peep King or Queen in your midst;
  9. If you have a microwave that is easily viewed it is possible to tape the “joust” event;
  10. I have included a YouTube video of one particular “joust”.  Peep Joust
  11. Happy jousting and Happy Easter!
  12. And remember Jesus is the reason for the Season – this is just for fun.
Another perk is to have Hershey bars and graham crackers on hand and after each “joust” you can make Peep S’mores.  Delish!

I am a mom of one 10 year old and stepmother to three wonderful adults; ages 20, 23 and 25. The youngest child is just beginning Fifth grade at Ashland Elementary in the Gifted/Quest program. She enjoys playing violin, archery and everything scientific. Mary Stewart is beginning her last year of medical school at Case Western in Cleveland. She and her fiancé, Franklin, plan to marry next June! Charles Morgan just graduated from the College of Charleston and will be beginning Post-Baccalaureate work next month. Betsy is living the college dream at Ole Miss in Oxford studying Business and the most fun ways to party. She plans to take the LSAT next summer! We are very blessed in the family department. My husband is a lawyer specializing in Intellectual Property, computer and entertainment law. We are in the eighth year since starting our own business, Montague Law PLLC. I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk) and now some new and fun work on the firm's website. We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse-themed and it is a very beautiful area to live in and raise a family. I have many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, computer science and security and one of my greatest passions is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family and reading and writing about my interests in my blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
