The hunt for Mary Sue

My husband is nothing if not nostalgic about his childhood.  He has these vivid memories of being a kid, growing up on a farm and beating the daylights out of his older and younger brothers.  I, on the other hand, remember very little about growing up other than moving around a lot and beating up on my younger sisters. (It’s really odd, I know.)

For the past two years, my husband has had me on a wild goose chase searching for Mary Sue Easter Eggs throughout southern York County.  Let me say, that I don’t get to the southern end of the county all that often and when I do, especially in the March/April time frame, I’m not remembering to look for Mary Sue Easter Eggs. So, last year when I didn’t produce the eggs, the hubby was, how do I say this, a BIG PAIN IN MY SIDE. Apparently, since the boy was old enough to remember things, he wanted to make sure that this nostalgia was passed down to a new generation. (It turned into the artificial verses real tree argument that we have every year at Christmas. And the, I’m not super woman, conversation.)

This year, I was on my A-game.  Mostly, because the thought of a silly fight about chocolate Easter eggs was making me nuts in January.  So, like every super busy, tech savvy, working mother, I broke out the computer and started googling “Mary Sue Easter Eggs” and low and behold Mary Sue had a website. Twenty dollars and two shipping days later, the goods were delivered – two 1/2 lb milk chocolate/peanut butter and one 1/2 lb dark chocolate/coconut Easter eggs, none of which are for me. (Personally, I prefer Wolfgang’s Chocolate Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Eggs or Fitzkee’s dark chocolate. Guess, I should go to market and treat myself otherwise I’m not getting any.)

Score one for me, I win.  Just call me Courtney – The Memory Keeper.

So, my friends – the question – do you go out of your way to make your significant other feel special on holidays or help to pass on their favorite childhood memories to your children?

As a side note, apparently Johnny Unitas, of the Baltimore Colts from back in the day, sang the jingle for Mary Sue.  I know this because every time I mention Mary Sue Easter Eggs in front of my MIL, she starts to sing the jingle.  (I love a good marketing campaign.)
