How to Dye Eggs Naturally Using Nothing but… FOOD! http://homebodyinmotion.com/how-to-dye-easter-eggs-naturally/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/how-to-dye-easter-eggs-naturally/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 08:20:09 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1260 Last year, I was busily being more “motion” and less “homebody” for various reasons. First, I was pregnant and we were trying to get all possible travel in before babies (I was editing the original version of this post from a tropical lanai).

I like to think this is because I always look so well rested, wear color so well, and have such a glowing all-over-even tan.

I’m going to tell you straight up. It’s when you have seven-month-old twins, and you’re getting on a plane for a getaway without them for the first time since they were born.
