Random Thursday

It's been a long week or two around these parts filled with friends, babies, soul searching, new routines, and crafting. I owe you guys recaps and and wedding related "glory", and I'm dragging my feet. In the mean time, I leave you with some randomness.

How adorable are these little ballet slippers? Baby H is 8 weeks old.
(I think I cropped this photo in too tight..)

Remember my post on revamping an Ikea dresser? Apparently there is a whole community out there that repurposes Ikea furniture. They call themselves Ikea Hackers. I found a blog completely devoted to Ikea hacks. I can't even tell you how many hours I spent surfing through it. Some of it is pretty ugly, but there are a couple of gems in the mix!

I found out I was REALLY lactose intolerant not too long before the wedding. It's not a reach to say that I have a lactose allergy. In searching for non-dairy recipes I stumbled across Dairy Free for Baby. The authors' little one's are not only extremely intolerant of lactose protiens, but soy protiens as well. It's gut wrenching to read about what their babies have gone through.
As you know, one of my new found hobbies is photography. (If you've figured me out, you'd swear that I have some form of ADD/ADHD and jump from one thing to another.) While perusing through one of my favorite food/photo blogs, Cannelle et Vanille (Aran's photos make me drool all over my keyboard), I learned that the author was going to be teaching at a craft retreat in Colorado. And you know what? I am going to go. I get to learn about food styling and food photography at one session. AND. I can learn about lifestyle photography at another session. I have friends that live in Fort Collins, so I can visit them while I'm out there.

Speaking of photography. My camera and I are about to go on our first trip. I purchased my camera last November, but it hasn't been outside of Massachusetts/Connecticut! Crazy! I am headed to Chicago for the weekend. My BFF Jack and I are ready to explore. While I am there, I hope to take cool photos much like the Bonnie Tsang does on her trips. Of course my photos won't be anywhere near as amazing.
