Blessings from Florida

Actually, the blessing was straight from heaven, sent via Florida. So the other day Sharon and I were in Carrefour (like Walmart with less mullets and way more Asians). We only had a couple things to grab and little time to do it in, so we split up and planned to meet at the registers. Five minutes later Sharon comes around the corner with a huge grin on her face. In her hands was pure liquid gold straight from Polk County, FL- Florida's Natural Orange Juice. No lie. Even though it cost 5 times more than all the other brands, we had to buy it. Actually, it's the only "real" orange juice we've found. "Oren jus" here is basically watered-down Tang with fake pulp. Bobby, please hug the man who thought it'd be a good idea to export to Southeast Asia.

Fake pulp!?!?! That breaks my heart. Had I thought of it-I would have hand delivered some to you guys myself. Maybe one day I will...

Hey guys, we are with you on the products imported from home. One of Todd's favorites has been the Betty Crocker Oatmeal/Choc. Chip cookie mixes. He brought home about 8 packs of them the other day. We have learned that if you see it once and don't buy it, you probably won't see it again for a long time. So buy what you can drink before it goes past the expiration date. Love you guys!

Tru dat! Yesterday grocery shopping we came across an aisle that had real pancake syrup, Betty Crocker cake mixes, Betty Crocker icing, and El Paso Taco seasoning. Anthony said "Wait? Did we just walk down the heaven aisle?"
