Thursday Thirteen--What we miss about the US

Thirteen Things we miss about living in the US
Ok, so I've heard a ton about Thursday Thirteen since I started blogging, but my voluntary computer illiteracy was stirring massive amounts of fear within me keeping me from actually attempting it, but I figured it was time to just go for it. The older kids and I actually came up with a great list of thirteen things that we missed about the US while we were stuck in a stand-still stau (that's German for traffic jam) yesterday for an hour and 45 minutes, so hmm, I guess I'll start there!
1.Sonic slushies (Kelsey has begged four or five people to just TRY to FedEx her one, to no avail)
2.Shopping at Wal-Mart at midnight instead of being shooed out abruptly of the store at 6pm.
3.Regular fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. One hour a week is NOT enough!
4.Stumpknockers. Yum. Best all-you-can-eat catfish and fried mushrooms ever to cross my lips.
5.Dollar stores
6.Checkers' cajun burgers
7.THE BEACH!!!!!!
8.Being able to take off on a 4-day-weekend to visit anyone we wanted to
9.Cuban crackers
10.Minor league baseball games
11.Golden Corral
12.Malls
13.Friday game nights at our house with too many people, too much food, and so much fun we had to sleep in the next day!

I love Sonic Slushies and Checkers' Burgers. The nearest Checkers to us (still 45 min away) shut down and now I can't get my burger and cheapo shake fix when I'm in that area.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
