7 Things That Make Melissa Ordway Smile
Simple pleasures that bring The Young and the Restless' Melissa Ordway cheer.
1. My family.
I have an amazing family that fills my world with an immense amount of joy and laughter. My husband [actor and singer-songwriter Justin Gaston] is hilarious. My daughter is the best thing ever. My parents are my best friends. I am so blessed.
2. Greeting cards.
Paper cards are so classic and thoughtful. It means so much when I receive a card with a handwritten note in it.
3. Room service.
Being on vacation and relaxing in your room while eating a delicious meal... it doesn’t get much better than that! My favorite hotel is Mandarin Oriental, New York. Even if I order a cheeseburger and Coke—and I do!—it feels glamorous.
4. French fries.
My favorite food. I could eat french fries with every meal! I never get tired of them.
5. My dogs.
I have a little Pomeranian/Maltese mix and a Rottweiler mix named Lily and Buddy. They are both so loving and sweet. I love how gentle they are with my daughter.
Especially for baby clothes. Everything is so much cuter when it’s tiny!
7. New York City.
My favorite city in the world! It energizes me. I love going to a show on Broadway and shopping in SoHo. My favorite store is Louis Vuitton. Love all the beautiful bags!
