I was into dollhouses when I was little- I had two, one was a little wooden one that can be made from those craft store kits (which I'm not sure if they have any more) and was painted purple. The other was a masterpiece of a dollhouse, made by my grandfather and modeled after the house I grew up in. My mom and I then decorated it exactly like our house, or as close as we could get.

These ladies however have taken dollhouses to a new extreme level...

Don't they look incredibly close to the real thing? Supposedly these ladies furnish their dollhouses as they wish they could furnish their homes, complete with mini mock-designer furnishings...

birthdays and hedgehogs

this past Friday was Ste's 26th birthday. We celebrated with a themed party, as our friends always get strangely excited to be challenged with costume making. This time we decided on "come dressed as what you wanted to be when you were little". Ste was an astronaut, I was a dinosaur... enough said there.

Unfortunately, many of Ste's friends (aka physics students) had fulfilled their lifelong desires to be well... physics students. Now that I think about it, most of the boys had actually become what they wanted to be. So they tried to improvise and wrack their brains for what else they liked when they were little. So we ended up with a policeman who wanted to be a policeman since he was little dressing up as a builder (his childhood friends did say he had a love for construction cones as a child), a cameraman who wanted to be a cameraman since he was little dressing up as a bin man, a physics student dressing up as an astronomer.... etc....

Luckily, the girls had more vague, imaginative ideas of adulthood as children. Below we have the astronomer with (I quote) "I had vague ideas of having lots of animals and not really having a job and just having lots of fun..."

And, dum da da dum! The piece de resistance...
Hedgehog birthday cake!

Ste had a hedgehog cake for his first birthday so I thought it only fitting that at age 26 he have it again. :)

UD The Musical

My alma mater put together this musical clip to entice new students and show all UD has to offer. In a funny, insider way I actually like it...

the goats

I totally fell for the goats that were on the farm we stayed on for the second half of our trip.
They were just so intelligent and thoughtful looking and kept themselves surprisingly clean for barnyard animals.

There were also a bunch of babies. This one was only a week old.

This boy baby loved it when you scratched his head and baby horns.

I need some goats!
(and some actual land to have them on! oh well, maybe in my later life...)
