ultimate perfect day: wake up at a beach house on anna maria island, breakfast in bed, cuddle with jb, walk on beach,
ride bike to bistro for lunch with my bff's, back to beach, nap, prepare big dinner for family, watch the sunset on the west coast of florida over some wine, more cuddles with jb, fall asleep to waves crashing.
fave meal (first course to last):
firstly, there will be wine pairings with each course.
mixed cheeses, foie gras, around the couch or back porch
mixed greens with pine nuts, goat cheese, and vinaigrette.
pumpkin creme soup.
risotto and roasted garlic asparagus for sides
smoked duck on a bed of lentils for the main
creme brulee topped with strawberries, blueberries, shaved dark chocolate and homemade whipped cream
what do you miss most about home (excluding friends and fam as that is a given):
i miss the smell.
i'm from a little town where your tropicana orange juice is bottled.
in the morning, you can smell the orange peels.
after that, it's just salt air.
i love the smell of home.
have you ever considered modeling:
thanks bridget. you and my father in law have the same idea.
i have, and would. but i am a little shy about things of that nature.
who is your biggest inspiration in life:
the sweetest, kindest, and most giving person i've ever known.
what are your favorite baby names:
Our first girl will be named Sophia/Sofia.
I want to name her sophia with a ph
jb wants the f.
our boy will be the fourth. but we won't call him JB which stands for John Bullock.
Perhaps just "Tuck" as his grandfather was called. but have the traditional name on everything else. it gets confusing with these fourths.
another name I love for a girl is Seleta, but JB isn't too fond of it ... just yet (:
Do I bleach my hair?
I get highlights, and i think they used to be bleach.
but now I go to a salon that uses aveda products that are a lot easier on my hair.
What is your hair routine?
I use Pureology, fekkai, herbal essence - i rotate them.
i don't blow dry (once in a very blue moon... and actually i don't own a blow dryer over here)
I sometimes comb it. sometimes I don't.
Every once in a while for special events, I will curl it with a big barrel.
Do you use a straightener?
I own one but maybe use it once a year.
If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?
It all works out better than you can imagine, so stop worrying darn it.
favorite TV show:
ncis and gossip girl. a tie.
What do you do when he's gone for baseball?
JB is only gone 3 hours a day during the week. from 6-9.
So I might do a number of things - blog, market, park, read ...
but i always have dinner ready by the time he's home- we have to eat late.
but we do get a pretty sweet day together.
on weekends he has games from 8-2ish if its home. and 8-5ish if its away.
I either go to the games or do what i do when he's gone during the week.

3! 2 sisters and a brother. I'm the youngest middle.
Is Australia in your future travel plans?
