Time Heals Most Wounds

A while back, right after we had moved here and I was feeling very homesick, I made a list of the things I missed about home. At this point, now that I'm over my homesickness and am loving being here, I thought it might be nice to re-visit this topic - in a new way.

Top 10 Things I Still Miss About Home:
(not necessarily in this order)
1. Driving
2. Char-Grill hot dogs
3. Sweet iced tea
4. Our house
5. Cameron Village and Crabtree Mall and other local shopping
6. Ellen Degeneres Show
7. Being able to hop in a car and drive two hours to visit family
8. Light Beer
9. Lazy football weekends
10. My girlfriends

Top 10 Things I'm Going To Miss About London After We Leave:
(not necessarily in this order)
1. Not driving
2. One of our fave restaurants here - 1492 Latin Fusion
3. Proper British tea in a pub
4. Having a small flat with only one bathroom to clean
5. Portobello Road and Camden Markets
6. The original "What Not to Wear"
7. Being able to hop on a train and be in another country in two hours
8. Strongbow Cider
9. Touristy sight-seeing weekends
10. My girlfriends

See what I did there with the corresponding numbers? You are in awe of my cleverness, no?

If it will help you with your homesickness, Trinny and Susanne are now on BBC America! At least they are in VA, so I assume you'll still have them grabbing each other in NC as well!! Thanks for showing Andrea my blog, I feel like I know you guys already!
