Things I Already Miss About Illinois...

The past few weeks have flown by! I think we are almost settled in our house (well, Tyler since I don't technically live here yet I am just getting things organized because March 31 I don't want to come "home" to a mess!).

There are a few things, though that I am missing about Illinois and *of course* they are mostly food related (oink oink oink). 

1. Diet Squirt

Hello. WHY does the South not carry this stuff? My coworkers always had it at worked and I grew to LOVE IT as a mixer. It tastes like Fresca and it is absolutely delicious. I bought 4 cases of it before we moved and I can't stop drinking it. Hopefully my IL friends will bring a few cases to our wedding!

2. Monical's Pizza

This pizza is amazing, too. They make this "Sweet and Tart" dressing that tastes like a french dressing and I bought 3 bottles before we moved. Too bad they won't deliver from IL to SC!

3. Meijer

The mix of Target/Wal-Mart. I HATE Wal-Mart and of course we have one half a mile down the road! I would do anything to pop in here!

4. Having a J-O-B.

No picture needed. I am rotting away searching for jobs and wedding planning and organizing this house!

What do you miss about somewhere you've lived? Am I forgetting anything Midwestern friends? I definitely DON'T miss the cold!!!!

If and when we move back to SC, I'm totally going to miss HEB. It's the grocery store here. It's truly amazing! (although SC has Publix sooooo)

I feel ya on the whole missing the J-O-B thing. I am starting to go a little stir crazy around these parts...but at least it is helping my blog! I have been posting everyday!
