  Being together would have been great no matter where we were or what we were doing but being outside (vitamin D – finally!) with the most adorable, precious baby Liza and indulging the sweet tooth we both share was a pretty legit combination. Skinny Cow products always make me remember a very specific point in my life…the summer before my Sophomore year in college my best friend Meghan and I took summer school classes together and our weekly routine was: going to class, laying out in the quads, doing hilarious projects, driving home to her parent’s house in Chicago while…

  I usually buy one new suit each season and take good care of it so I can get a few years of use out of it. Colors and prints are my favorite but I’m pretty picky about the fit. My, um, smaller chest and bigger hips mean that I order multiple sizes online, try them on at home, keep what’s good and send back what doesn’t work. This sounds like an annoying process but I find it far better than stripping down in a dressing room with bad light (no. bueno.). Nordstrom was one of my one-stop-shop visits for…

  I always get nervous when I flip through magazines and read, “Every woman should have one signature scent.” Just one? But there are so many that smell so good. Why limit ourselves? I definitely tried to fit in with the crowd in high school and would wear Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue or Ralph Lauren Romance, but I never liked how they smelled on me. It wasn’t till Sally started wearing men’s cologne (she has always been a trend setter) I realized that like her, spicy more masculine scents are what I liked best. I’m still a fan of…

Sally’s Bachelorette Weekend http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/03/23/sallys-bachelorette-weekend/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/03/23/sallys-bachelorette-weekend/#comments Mon, 23 Mar 2015 14:38:18 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=22664

  Once I had settled on the spot I started thinking about details. Before I even planned what I would cook or how much booze to buy, I began to brainstorm about some sort of gift I could give Sally and each of the girls attending the weekend. I know how tough it can be for people to step away from work and families (particularly new babies!), pay to travel, and take time away from life so I wanted to create welcome bags as a way to thank everyone for traveling and making time to celebrate Sal. My brain automatically thought to…

  I loathe when people say, “I’m so busy.” Everyone is busy! But guys, I have been slammed. I got back from Houston yesterday and I leave tomorrow for Charleston. I’m not complaining – or humble bragging – I’m just trying to explain for why I’ve been so MIA. Y’all should know by now that I hate disappointing…but maybe it will make you feel better to know that I’m sitting in a messy apartment, with a face that’s breaking out from stress, and a long list of posts I need create. Blah, blah, let’s get back to talking about what I…
