Bloomin' Caprese Bread
Made Famous By: Heather McMullin
Inspiration: The GirlWho Ate Everything
While I was picking up my boys from school I patiently waited in front. As I was standing there I noticed a man wearing very nice business attire leaning against his brand new Mercedes SUV.
Then I heard him say, “Like totally dude!!”
I don’t remember what the rest of his conversation was, but I definitely heard him say LIKE TOTALLY DUDE! I was all by myself so I didn’t LOL, but in my head I was laughing SO hard!!
You see that is just part of the culture here at the beach. The people who have grown up surfing all their life have the beach in their soul and it shows even through an expensive suit and a Mercedes. I actually quite enjoy the laid back surfer disposition. It is completely relaxing!! J
