Raina said...

We have a pretty good idea, but until a former offer is made I cannot say.

House of Slappy said...

We would so get along in real life. Good luck to the Mr.

Kate said...

Agreed , good luck, hope the offer is a tenure and I hope its a spot you'll all be really happy in.

I am not even American and I am missing those foods now! xv

g. said...

Yes to all!

Canned frosting is the best! My son and I pop one open once a week and eat it by the spoonfuls. It's our little secret. :)

Chick-fil-A is my secret food lust. I even ate a CFA sandwich for lunch on my wedding day! I was a vegetarian for 10 years and it was that damn yummy sandwich that made me fall off the wagon.

susieq said...

Raina, what city are you guys returning too?

Tikimama said...

No chocolate-chip cookie dough?

Your list makes me laugh - you are quite the gourmet!

Good, good luck on the job offer and relocation. Isn't it grand that you've got everyone rooting for you to come live by them? I'm in So. Cal, by the way, it's great here!

David said...

Yay, come on home! Can't wait to see where you guys land.

Raina said...

Apriliniowa - I'm glad others share my secret predeliction. ;)

SusieQ- All will be revealed...

Tikimama - A serious gourmand. Truly. And, yes, I feel so loved and wanted. Sadly, I'm only going to be within spitting distance of one of you. As soon as LB has his offer, I'm hitting "send" on the announcement post I have lined up.

Dear god, how have you been living without Reese's cups? HOW?

karly / design-crisis.com said...

my god, no one told me there was no chick-fil-et, we need to get your ass on the next boat.

(i just now read erin's comment, I really don't try to be like her, promise)

sounds gross & over processed!
(feeling the need to defend the down-unders!)

nkp said...

HA! Great list and soooo American. Obviously no dieticians in the crowd, or they would have at you! I took the kiddos to Chik-fil-A tonight since the Hubs was at a charity event, thought of you. Funny the things we miss. :0)

Still got all my digits crossed, hope the offer is a lucrative one!

hello gorgeous said...

How did I miss this?????!!!!!

Sorry, so busy getting ready for my daughter to GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It goes by so fast. Hold the Pea tightly tonight...

What's Kiwi ketchup like?

Raina said...

A vile sugar, vinegar, and tomato concoction.
