  There’s a BHLDN boutique location in Houston (if you live close by you must go – it’s such an experience!) that we were hoping to visit for the trying on but logistics got in the way so the store sent the Annabelle and all kinds of accessories our way for a intimate try on session. Getting to play with the ties that blend into the skirt was a pretty fun bride + maid-of-honor activity. One thing Sally did know when first starting to look for dresses was that she wants something long…even though the wedding isn’t black tie, long dresses always…

Picking Up A Few Things http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2014/10/30/picking-tide-pods/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2014/10/30/picking-tide-pods/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 11:58:30 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=20346

  I know I have mentioned this a lot, but my recent move from the two-bedroom apartment I shared with Sally to a one-bedroom spot for myself has made me hyper-aware of what I buy and what I already have – there’s only so much storage for so much stuff! For instance: my laundry “closet” is tiny but mighty. I’ve managed to arrange the two small shelves above my washer and dryer to hold a faux christmas tree, beach towels, cleaning supplies, ironing stuffs, and all my stain treatment products. But there is nooo room for an industrial-sized container of…

One Room Challenge | Week No. 5 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2014/10/29/one-room-challenge-week-5/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2014/10/29/one-room-challenge-week-5/#comments Wed, 29 Oct 2014 15:57:09 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=20325

  Paint. I mentioned in the first ORC post that my walls were originally a pale beige/tan color. So, NBD, I painted them white. Bailey told me to swatch test and I was like “Pshhh, who has time for that?” and chose Benjamin Moore Ultra White (A.). Once painted, my first thought was, “These walls are blue.” But I tried to control myself and reasoned that it was just a “cool white” and that I would a) get used to the color once things got into the room. After four weeks I determined I hated the color and couldn’t live…

Fall in San Francisco – Sister Visit http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2014/10/28/fall-san-francisco-sister-visit/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2014/10/28/fall-san-francisco-sister-visit/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 13:17:11 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=20260

  So, Saturday (10/18) started with a delicious breakfast and coffee at Jane on Filmore. It’s our friend Michaela’s favorite place and has a seriously cool, cozy interior and delicious coffee and food options. We really went for it and ordered bakery creations and did not regret it one bit. Our Kansas City-based family won’t be happy about us posting a picture of a mounted Buffalo head wearing an SF Giants hat but it was too good not to capture this nod to the World Series — SF Giants against our hometown Royals! After breakfast we ran a bunch of errands…
