A+ For Aloft Hotels

Greetings from Houston! My mom and I are here on a whirlwind road trip to celebrate the marriage of Awesome Matt and Emily. We are just here for the night, but are sitting pretty in our awesomely modern and sleek room here at the Aloft Houston. Aloft is "a vision of the W Hotel" and I would call it it's cooler, more down-to-earth, colorful little sister. Maybe from Europe. Who has great hair and soft skin thanks to Bliss products in her room. Who can see that just $82 can buy some real classy hotel room space.

Anyhoo, great shower, awesome bed, amazing flat-screen tv, and more style than any of your momma's hotels, I'll definitely look forward to my next stay at an Aloft hotel.

Have you stayed Aloft? Apparently a bunch more are opening up soon, including one in downtown Dallas!

YAY for attainable design!

I've Got The Whole World...Around My Neck

Today my friend Sheri mentioned the only continent she hasn't been to is Antarctica. That's just awesome. Perhaps I should get her this World Links necklace? What a conversation piece, huh?!

Pie Just Got Even Awesomer

How awesome are these Apple and Pumpkin Pocket Pie Molds from Williams-Sonoma?

They claim to be "Kid-friendly," which bumps up my possible success rate on these to at least about 38%. I'll take it. These look adorable. Watch the video tutorial here.

Looks like the user ratings are really high. This would make an adorable hostess gift for the season. For just $9.99 each, you can't really go wrong. (Although you can't ever really go wrong when pie is involved.)

Did you know I have NEVER had an apple pie from McDonald's?? Random Pia fact.

A is for Awesome Alphabet Fun

The alphabet is awesome. Even awesomer when shown in a colorful, fun, graphic way. Here's a handful of alphafun from around the interwebs.

I love these Mixed Alphabet Felt Letters by MiChiMa on Etsy.

Also loving this Wild Kingdom Wall Art from The Land of Nod.

Check out Alphamonsters from Paperfingers. Two color palettes. Twenty-six letters. One great print.

And finally, this Alphabet Print from Pennypeople is customizable!Very cool. That will be coming with me to the next baby shower I attend.

Pia The Pig can also create customized prints for all yo' baby needs. Just ask!

Spelling Counts!

The Most Awesome Costume

My friend Craig is legendary for his Halloween costumes. Luckily, this year, he did not disappoint. I saw a lot of awesome costumes on Facebook, but win.

Check out the resemblance.

They had a Cereal Mascot Halloween Party. Check out the cookie thief. BRILLZ!

Deliciously Awesome.
