Easter Eggs

So I know Easter was almost a month ago, but I didn't want to post this until I had pictures to go with it. The evening before Easter, Chris and I dyed easter eggs. We just bought the cheap-o box of dye. It looked something like this (except newer):

Notice the contents of the box. We knew what the color tablets, the egg dipper, and the egg holders were. We even understood that the egg drying tray was just the back of the box that had some holes you could punch out, and it made a nifty little egg stand. But what were the silly circles? Well, you know how the holes you punch out of the back are circle-shaped? Apparently Paas thinks of those circles, not as something to be thrown away, but as a feature of the product they're selling you. Nice, huh? They even had some tips of how to make the most of your silly circles by turning them into a necklace.

We had a lot of fun dying our eggs. We even got creative with a little tape. Here are some of the results.

This one dried with that cool crackly effect
(don't know how to recreate that)

A purpley, speckled one

Having fun with tape

More fun with tape

One that looks like it could be a logo of some kind

All of the Easter eggs we made

Now all ready to be turned into egg-salad! (which we did)

Happy Easter everyone!

Five months tomorrow

Five months tomorrow will mark the anniversary of when I married this guy.

He makes my heart go: WOoHoO! (especially when he makes silly faces). Marrying him was the best decision I have ever made in my whole life, and I get to spend the rest of that life (+ eternity) with him.
