In other news...

On the domestic front, I have been making a lot of desserts recently.  I have a new obsession with Jello.  I love it. Eating it, making it...everything.  So I have some pictures of my first Jello ventures and more will follow as I continue to explore!

My first Jello mold attempt!
  The top layer is regular Jello and the bottom is Jello with cream cheese.

My second creation.

My next Jello creation was for the 4th of July! It was a process, but really good and worth it!

My last dessert of late was an oreo cake for "C's" Dad's birthday.  The man thinks that Oreo' s are among some of the best creations EVER! So I made him a cake that looked just like one!  I can't take credit for the recipe, only the  The recipe was found on the Philadelphia Cream Cheese website.

totally yummy oreo cake!


Getting Married!!!

Big changes have been happening for gay New Yorkers and it has been wonderful!!!! We went through two weeks of hell at the end of June waiting for the NY senate to vote on marriage equality.  It was an emotional roller coaster, but in the end the decision came down in our favor!  We went into Manhattan that night to join hundreds of people outside of The Stonewall Inn.  It was an amazing feeling and all we could do was cry we were so happy.
 This was a Friday night and that Sunday was NYC Pride.  Needless to say it was an amazing Pride filled with so much love and hope!!!  We were so proud to be there and to be able to be a part of the festivities.
Governor Cuomo, Mayor Bloomberg, and NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn at the parade! 
  The law actually went into effect today and over 800 couples are being married today!!!!  So, "C" and I are getting married on FRIDAY!!! I can' t believe that in 5 days I will be a married woman.  This is a tremendous victory for equality and I can only hope that NY will help lead the way for the rest of the states.
