Getting to know me

I thought it would be fun for you to get to know me a little better so let’s answer some questions.  Here we go!

How old are you? 39

Where do you live? Missouri

Are you married?  Yes!  I got married in 2003

Kids? Yes! 2 girls

What 3 words describe you? Positive, Punctual, Honest

Pet peeves? Umm yes!  People who are late, rudeness, people who continue to talk with food in their mouths.

Favorite drink? In the morning coffee.  At night a glass (or two!) of Savignon Blanc.

Favorite salty snack?  Chunky guacamole with blue corn tortilla chips. 

Thick or thin pizza? For those who don’t know, I live in St. Louis, MO and thin crust pizza is HUGE here!  When I visit Chicago I cannot leave without going to Gino’s East (the best pan pizza in my opinion).  I think I’m going to have to have to call a tie on this one, I love them both!

Top 5 favorite shows to watch? Homeland, Housewives (I watch almost all of them!), Chicago PD, Ray Donovan, Scandal

Morning bird or night owl? Night Owl

Well that was fun!  If you have anything you want to know put it in the comments.

Have a great day!



Happy Labor Day


Since today is Labor Day my girls don’t have school, my husband isn’t working AND outdoor pools around here close after today so my family is going to enjoy the last day of our 3 day weekend relaxing poolside! I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun “getting to know me” post so be sure to check it out!

Have a great day.


I’m getting organized!

Ok, I’m on a roll…

morning walk✅

hair appointment scheduled✅

dinner in the crockpot✅ (It’s a new recipe-I’ll share in a future post!)

Seriously I feel like I’ve had a pretty good day and now it’s going to get even better!

Planner (similar)

Yep I’m finally getting around to putting all of the important dates in my calender! I found this cute planner (animal print & gold-YES PLEASE!) and it’s perfect!  It has plenty of room for me to write and has both a weekly and month calander (which I like best).  As much as I’m really sad about my girls going back to school I do admit it’s nice to get back to a “normal” schedule.  I think it’s good for my girls to see me organized and in turn they will want to be organized too-so it’s a win, win situation!

Ok, now I’m off to start finding some new recipes to try-if you have a yummy “go-to” recipe I’d love for you to share it with me!

Have a great day!




If you’re blissful, you’re happy and at peace. You can never have too many blissful moments.

So that’s the technical definition of the word, but basically bliss=happy!  I admit I have a pretty positive outlook on life; I enjoy laughing and the people I surround myself with so it seemed like a pretty good fit for my blog name!  I actually wanted to name my blog happily beth, but it was taken.  Now that I have this name I have started to like it better so I guess it all worked out!

The reason I started my blog was pretty simple.  I have always enjoyed both writing and sharing my thoughts and favorites with others (recipes, coffee flavor, t-shirt from Target…you get the idea) so I thought it would be fun to share with a larger group of people.  And in return maybe you will share some of your favorites with me and they just might become my favorites too!  By no means do I think my ideas, thoughts, favorites, etc. are the best of the best; they are just things that work for me.

I hope you stop by, take a minute to read a post or two and enjoy what you see.  If you do please subscribe so you don’t miss anything.  And don’t forget to leave your comments!


Have a great day!
