11.  Most embarrassing moment?
I embarrass myself a lot.
I've fallen off a bar stool.
I fall and trip just by walking.
Sadie escaped years ago and I had to run around my neighborhood in the city
to try and find her.
One time I was walking my dog and I locked myself out of my apartment,
Halloween night and was in my pajamas. 
{I was 24}
I found a few guys dressed in Goalie costumes and they broke into my apt. for me.
Not my proudest moment.
Luckily they were nice people.

I am not going to "TAG" anyone, but if you feel like answering these questions, feel free to copy these and re-post. I'd love to learn more about all of you my lovely readers!!


  1. I can't believe I've never read a Jane Austen book... I need to change that asap!
    And #6? AMEN! Totally agree to that. Anytime we watch a movie set back in time I always tell my hubs I wished we dressed like that and that our towns would hold balls and dances like back in those days :)

  2. Ahhh I am such a Jane-ite, too! I got to take a class last spring all about Jane Austen. My professor would come to class wearing Regency costumes! She was so passionate about Austen, and it was an amazing course :)

    That is an AMAZING last name of Bliss! I think I'd have a hard time letting that one go! I think for some reason I always thought your blog name referred to marital bliss or something. Makes much more sense now! Haha

    And I can totally see the resemblance in all of those celebrities! Mehh wish I had so many fab celebrity lookalikes! :)

  3. I love fun fact posts. And I am totally going with Jen from the bachelor! That season she was on her wardrobe was the bomb!

  4. I love this! I always assumed your blog name meant that you were in marital bliss and working towards making a bean (like a baby) HA! That is too funny. I bet your male students loved having a hot teacher named Miss Bliss! That is hilarious and I totally see the resemblance to jessica simpson and something about your face looks like Jenn. Thanks for answering my questions girlie:)

  5. You are just gorge! And you danced on TV??? I bet there is a good story there!

  6. Loved getting to know you more! I can def. relate to the love of dancing! And I can def. see the Jessica Simpson Resemblance!

    I hope your having a wonderful start to your week!

  7. I loved Jen! She was a good bachelorette. Trishelle was crazy, she got on my nerves! Wonder what she is doing these days??

  8. I would love to have lived when it was all ruffles, corsettes, and pearls! :) Very Jane Austen...

    I thought the Bliss to Bean was a reference of wedding to children. I like the Miss Bliss much better though!

  9. I actually did wonder what Bliss to bean meant? LOL And I've never met anyone who said they wished they lived back when corsets and bustles were around!!! I always wished that too! Gone with the Wind is my all time favorite movie!! Pretty woman is also on my top ten list! Style of a Mrs.

  10. So much of this doesn't surprise me at all! :) I'm not a big follower of The Bachelorette, but you DO look like Jenn!

  11. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only blogger who is super clumsy haha. I am constantly running into things, alll the time! And you girlie, are absolutely gorgeous! I think you look most like Sarah Michelle Geller. Lucky you :)

  12. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only blogger who is super clumsy haha. I am constantly running into things, alll the time! And you girlie, are absolutely gorgeous! I think you look most like Sarah Michelle Geller. Lucky you :)
