1. What do you wear to bed?
If I am alone I wear a t-shirt and undies-I always take my pants off. If I am not alone, I am usually naked. :)

2. What's your favorite thing to do?
I have lots of favorite things to do-playing with my niece Mariah is on the top of the list, kiss, read, and of course, cooking...

3. Where would you like to travel to next?
Greece

4. Who's the one that got away?
My ex-boyfriend of 6 years, Sean. He was so good to me and we were very much in love-but I broke up with him to go out with my ex-husband. Bad choice...and then there's the man I love now-he's not "away" but I have to figure out how to get him to say he loves me.

5. When did you know that he/she was the one?
On our 2nd date we fell asleep on my sofa and I woke up in the morning and thought, "I could wake up to him every day of my life and be happy."

6. Why do you live where you do? Because I had no real ties (kids, husband) in CT and always wanted to be a city girl..so in Nov. I moved to Boston and I love it.

7. How many close friends do you have?
I have 2 very close people in my everyday life and 2 very close people from my blogging life-and lots of others who I care a great deal about.

8. What was your worst/best date?
My worst date ended with me telling the guy that there was no soap in the bathroom so he shouldn't shake my hand-my best date was a blind one and I never talked to him again-he took me to the Animal Kingdom Lodge for drinks and dinner and we walked around the animals and then sat outside by the fire pit in rocking chairs with wine. It was lovely.


9. What was the meanest thing someone/you ever did?
I am sure there are a few, but at this moment, I thankfully can't think of it.

10. How do you feel about life in general?
I feel like I'm wasting my culinary degree by not using it on a daily basis and truth be told, I feel like a failure in that regard. I feel like I let the people down who believe in me. I also feel like I'm getting too old to get married again and to have a child, which makes me sad. That being said, I like life and am enjoying it right now.
