Bliss bits 11/21

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday! 

And it’s DOUBLE WHAMMY STYLE. 

I had a folder full of blissy bits to share before the wedding. Then there was a girls night out, a jewelry making extravaganza at Sundance, a rehearsal dinner, our “I do” moment…and, of course, a sunny get-away! I couldn’t get to it. Baby steps, people. 

Here’s a random handful of things that made me smile before the wedding week.

(And if you’re good, I’ll give you a treat at the end.)

Image

Make no mistake- ski season is near!

Image

Wedding gifts and wine.

Image

Chalk love note on slate.

Image

Still such a baby.

Image

“Let’s not cook before we leave for 2 weeks.”

Image

Troubles? What troubles?

Image

A pre-wedding visit to Sundance Resort.

Image

Solo lunch date… with no carbs. Sigh!

Image

My favorite feature on my car. 

Image

Generous friends helping to fill our shelves with glassware!

Image

Seriously, when can I have a BUN?

Image

Just five more minutes, Mom…

Image

Looks like we’ll be moving the wedding indoors.

Image

The season’s first snow!

Image

Olive oil cake at Trio. OMG.

Image

Hotel Monaco room for ladies night downtown!

Image

Clearly, they realized The Product Hoarder was coming to stay.

Image

Just a sprinkle.

Image

Someone please call me so I can use this rad phone.

Image

It’s never enough. I know, Cholula. I know.

Image

Beyond the snout, Cholula’s Halloween costume is visible.

Image

My beloved cheap Mr. Coffee machine just got trumped. BAM.

You know. Just the usual bliss.

And now, since you’ve been SO good… some unusual bliss.

Glimpses of the honeymoon- more to come!

Image

Dock toes. We need a tan.

Image

Sometimes, room service breakfast is delivered by canoe.

Image

Dancing in the rain. In the ocean. Wouldn’t you?

Image

The Mr. and Mrs.

Image

Hibiscus as big as my head.

Image

John (far right) totally rocks Polynesian night.

Image

True story, you guys.

Image

Lily pad by the day spa.

Image

Vanilla!

Image

Tahitian black pearls.

Image

Pretty happy.

Image

I can’t make this stuff up.

Image

Giggling in the back of a pick-up truck en route to dinner. 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  1. So blissful, Amber! I’m jealous you have seatwarmers in your car! I still can’t believe that we have the technology to do that. My next car WILL have seatwarmers. Living in Chicago, it’s a must!

    Your honeymoon shots are just unreal. That hammock by the ocean is the stuff screensavers are made of!

    And you know I’ll never complain about Cholula pics. The more, the better 🙂

    Have a great Thanksgiving, Amber!

  2. Whitey’s in Tahiti’s!! LOL Looks like you tanned up at the end. I honestly can’t WAIT for your posts with kids. In five years. That will be some SERIOUS bliss. Cheers!!

  3. You seriously fill my whole soul with love and happiness. I know it sounds silly, but it’s the only way I can describe it. Seeing your posts gives me bubbles of happiness in my throat. You’re like SOUL CHAMPAGNE!

    Ohmygod I want champagne so so so much right now. And we’re out.

  4. You are amazing with a camera. Those pics are unreal! Looks like you had the honeymoon of your dreams. Love the pic of the vanilla beans. I’m definitely a sucker for good vanilla- thinking of making my own extract this year.
