I really do love the last Wednesday of every month! I look forward to remembering all the things that brought me Bliss! In case you’re new here, Meg and I host this #bloggerbliss link-up every month to highlight your favorite things from the past month! There are NO limitations – products, moments, bloggers, posts! We enjoy seeing what y’all love and trying some of those things out for ourselves! Be sure to use the hashtag #bloggerbliss throughout the month when you find something you love or you’re having a Blissful moment!
I’ve been lucky enough to visit Nick’s brother & sister-in-law in Florida at the beginning of July and my cousin and her family near the end of the July. I have some amazing memories from both occasions and I can’t imagine how the trips could have gone any better! I’m so thankful for the quality time I was able to spend with them as well as Nick and my friends, Lacy & Noelle.
You can see those recaps here:
This is a new game Nick got me hooked on. He always finds the most random apps and then I begrudgingly try them and then end up loving them!! This game is SO FUN – at least for the nerdy part of me. You get doubles to grow into larger numbers and the highest you can get is a 2048. You try to not run out of tile. Seriously, try it out, let me know what you think. In the meantime, I’ll be over here playing. Nick just informed me that once you beat the game, it unlocks the next level – 4096! oh my goodness.. I just can’t wait!
BARE COCONUT CHIPS
I had originally heard about Dang Coconut Chips when Julie mentioned them in her “Things I’m Loving Friday” post. Then when I attended Veg Fest Houston, they had a booth set up and I was really excited to try their coconut chips. Lo and Behold, they were delicious! The girls at the booth were super fun and I enjoyed talking with them! I still need to re-cap my Veg Fest Houston experience! For once in my blogging life, I feel like I have an abundance of posts that need to be written! Back on topic… so when I made my way back to small town Mississippi, I tried to find Dang Coconut Chips in our local Whole Foods – no such luck! I went with the only option we had, Bare Coconut Chips. They ended up being really good and will have to be my go-to coconut chip in Mississippi. Since I really enjoyed the girls at Veg Fest though and want to support Dang as well, I’ll be on watch when I’m out of town!
I’ve been making my way to our local walking trail lately to get some runs in. I’ve enjoyed the alone time and the nature. It’s always calming & beautiful while I’m there (Yet another post I need to publish). My workouts at the gym have been great, but there is nothing like fresh outdoor air!
This is by far my favorite marketing strategy in the history of the world! I think the idea of personalizing cokes was a brilliant idea and I guarantee they saw an increase in sales. I came across this one while I was waiting on my oil change. It was the first one I saw that didn’t have a name which I thought was cool! I picked it up because I like to believe that I really am a go-getter and that this diet coke was meant for me!
Do y’all watch this show? Me and my sisters have watched it for years. We’re determined to get picked one year and be the major “twist” of the season as sisters in the house where no one knows that we’re related. Clever, right? I am loving Nicole & Christine this season. I think they really understand the game and they’re playing smart – plus, they’re cute as can be! Frankie is just fun to watch, he’s so animated. Donnie is basically the nicest person who ever walked into the house, but he hasn’t exactly been the best player and I got really frustrated with him the week that Nicole was HOH and she tried to get advice from him and then he went and spilled it all to the house and played dumb as if she didn’t ask him to keep it to himself (she totally did) plus because they’re both such great people, I would have enjoyed them working together. I also really like Derek, I think he’s playing a smart game and he’s probably one of the most level headed people in the game. Who’s your favorite Big Brother player?
5 PICTURES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL
Meg had a great idea to include this in our Bliss post for the month. I’m sure we’ve all seen this 5 picture challenge floating around facebook and we definitely feel that Bliss and Beauty go hand-in-hand! Here are 5 pictures that make me feel beautiful!

Bottom Right // Me & my Disney Roomies at House of Blues during our CP days. They were loving, kind, and non-judgmental. I always felt beautiful with them!
