March 9, 2012

Ok so the BIG news around here is the engagement of some very dear friends of ours. Finally. We only made them start dating like... 5 years ago. Maybe 6, actually. Anyway. Yay!! A wedding!!! Next year!!! hehe.

In at-home news, we've been egg-sperimenting the last couple of days. teehee. I came across this via Pinterest and we set out to dissolve our egg's shell and have a NAKED EGG. It took more than 24 hours, at least for me to be happy with the nudity level. And the kitchen smelled fanTAStic for that time. Blech. But the horror excitement on Izzy's face is totally worth it.

Here's how we started:
Nothing too terribly exciting, other than the immediate covering of bubbles.
By the next morning, we had a frothy layer on top of the vinegar. Yay, calcium carbonate!
 From the side - lots of bubble activity for sure. The egg would also periodically roll on its own. THAT was really cool.

Day 3 - we emptied the vinegar, rinsed and rinsed with water and then added food coloring.

 We emptied out the dyed water and ran fresh in... the egg is most definitely colored. I wonder if we could boil it and cut it open to see how deeply the dye saturated?
