Bliss bits 4/24.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

I’m pretty excited today, because tomorrow morning, I’ll be hopping a plane to San Francisco! I’ll be spending half of the trip reuniting with girlfriends from college, and the other half with my dear friends, Nancy and Spencer and Syd. I’d love your must-see/must-do/must-EAT recommendations. Help me have a fabulous adventure!

What a lovely, smile-filled week. Take a gander at the little bits of joy from the last seven days!

Image

Tough, teensy flowers that survived a few late snowflakes.

Image

We survived an über-muddy hike- and a porcupine encounter!

Image

I’ve had a serious Stevie Nicks obsession since… before this song came out. 

Image

She is absolutely ridiculous. And possibly spoiled.

Image

Blistered garbanzo beans are delicious!

Image

I filled and hung my mod bird feeder! Update: no birds have visited yet. 

Image

I added salted peanuts, peanut butter chips, and vanilla chips. Tasty!

Image

Chicken tikka masala for one.

Image

This feather is so beautiful– I want to see the whole bird!

Image

I woke up in a panic that there was no coffee in the house. And found this. 

Image

Cholula LOVES her new Puppy Fried Chicken bucket.

Image

She snuggles with it.

Image

No, really. Mama hit it out of the park with this toy!

Image

Vibrant asparagus in springtime- YUM!

Image

Green grass, white SNOW, blue sky. April in Utah.

Image

I cleaned my closet. It makes me anxious when it’s messy.

Image

Crazy tube cloud!

Image

Cholula approves of hot hubby’s new sport coat. (Mama does, too.)

Image

Pretty sure I read this during a snowstorm.

Image

Her other favorite toy is the FOX.

Image

It was one of her very FIRST toys!

Image

A taco and salsa party from Lone Star Taqueria. SO GOOD.

Image

The ski runs have new snow on them, but most of the resorts are closed!

Image

Spring cleaning the garage meant moving the toys out of the way.

Image

It’s SUPER organized and tidy now!

Image

She avoided eye contact, but her nose gave her away. Little digger.

Image

Fiery sunset. 

Image

The first homemade sorbet of the season: strawberry coconut!

Image

I made John breakfast with this rainbow of goodness.

Image

I fried my first eggs. 

Image

I put my new garden tools to good use and weeded one day. ALL day.

Image

Look what I found during garage clean-up! Can I borrow a tape-player?

Image

I LOVE when she does this. Super-pup!

Image

I found drawings from a 4-year old in my wallet. I kept them there.

Image

Cholula sniffed around the free-for-all box at the dog park. 

Image

Oh! I made yummy shrimp risotto! I’ll tell you about it next week.

Image

Ranunculus is my new favorite flower. Stunning!

And… cuteness overload with a tiny Cholula video!

You know. Just the usual bliss.

  1. Baby Cholula pictures get me every time but a video sends me over the top, she’ just so cute! I love her new Puppy Fried Chicken that’s just plain awesome and so it Chicken Tikka Masala.
