Last Wednesday was a landmark day. First of all, it was my 10th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary to me and Dr. B.
I spent that morning with a group of lovely people meeting Buddy Valastro, the Cake Boss himself and having some fun at his place (more on that in a future post) and then the DOMA decision came down and my day turned epic.
A roller coaster of emotions followed with overwhelming feelings, both happy and sad. Crying and laughing with friends in person and on the phone. So profoundly happy for a wonderful civil rights victory in this country and so deeply sad for all the people I've known taken too early who never lived to see it.
I had a Pridetini party the night before marching in NYC's Gay Pride parade bringing together my friends from NYC and Milford, PA. We downed rainbows of food and cocktails and had a great time.
The parade it self was amazing as usual but a little extra over the top on the heels of the DOMA ruling. I marched with the Upper Delaware GLBT group (I am on the board of the organization)
Other crazy things that happened this month were the 100s of baked goods I was asked to/volunteered to make for various parties and events and had no time to post.
Oh, and I was hired to write some recipes for the Duncan Hines website.
I'm leaving for Germany and then the Caribbean in a few days for vaycay so there was absolutely no time for blogging this month.

I am also severely behind on visiting other people's blogs. Hoping to catch up on that when I am back in Germany.
In the meantime, here are a few posts I found around that I found extra amusing...
