Sweetiepies, Honeybuns & BABYCAKES

My two new cakes :)
They are little ones.

Randi's Birthday Cake

Katelyn's Birthday Cake (Giraffe print)

Red Velvet Cake, fresh butter cream frosting, marshmallow fondant, 6 hours over 2 days, a backache and two food colored stained hands later...
I'm much closer to being a fondant professional. Just wait and see, soon enough I'll have that bakery I dream of.

We live among fools...

We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
- Martin Luther King Jr.

Interesting how right Mr. King is.

Lately I have been faced with the racism argument. Who is right? Who is wrong?
No matter what excuse people use to justify it, I still come unglued.
Is it really necessary to judge someone by the color of their skin?

It is really sad to me that I still hear prejudice alive today. Regrettably within my age group... I mean really?? These are the people of my generation!! Teaching their children that it's acceptable to choose how to treat someone based on their ethnic background. That a "Raghead", "Wetback", or "Chink" joke is funny.
Oh, cant forget the black jokes. Those are the easiest. But it's okay dude...

"I was just raised that way. It doesn't make me racist..."

Here we are, supposed to be the most forward thinking generation, making our ways into roles that can make a difference. Changing things, making them right.
Were going green, going solo, going gay... And were proud of it.

I really just hope that one day... we will look at someone and not notice their race and really just see who they really are, as a person.

I digress.

Just the girls.

So Gretchen got married :)
And I threw her a bachelorette party fit for a princess.

The Bag I made for Gretchen, as her Bachelorette gift.

The Bachelorette herself. Men, back off... she's a taken women now.

The table of goodies for the girls. Including a personalized bottle of wine,
coozie, and goodie box, and don't think I didn't make the girls wear the
boas. Because I TOTALLY did.

Appetizer time!!

First shots of the night... And by far not the last.

Drinking game, with my special passion punch.
(my version of "jungle juice")

You did?!?! No... You never.

Stack em up ladies.

Out and about in downtown.

Badlands, the most amazing gay club ever.

We had such a fun night. These girls are the perfect group of friends to go out with. Everyone is laid back and is just there to have fun. I'm so lucky to have such amazing women in my life. I only hope I can get them all together again for a ladies night. I mean, look at them... Who wouldn't want to take them out? Its a good lookin' group of girls.
