I would love to see a documentary of you during your stay there. I can imagine this little girl frolicking around the stores and restaurants having a grand ole time.

Joyce said...

I can feel the excitment. Santa was good to you this year my friend. I'm sure you are going to have a blast. Will Sophie be going home with you or to the doggy spa? If she is not going, she asked that I remind you lots and lots of her favorite treats.
Many hugs.... xo
PS Hey Kathy, are you still having problems getting on my blog?

Shelle said...

Oh that is so exciting!!! Make the most ever every single minute while you are in the good old USA!!!

Ann said...

Hope you have a great trip and a very merry Christmas! I bought some Bob's candycanes the other day and thought of you!

lytha said...

i love it! your post was just like mine last june before our trip back. do you know we ate mexican food like 12 times in the month we were there? i couldn't get enough of it. i would have been happy eating mexican every day.

here is my blog post about our happy return to seattle, including a photo of me in a grocery store (safeway) going crazy looking at all the food i missed:

ya they have mexican food in germany, but it just doesn't taste the same, and they don't give you unlimited chips and salsa while you wait, and they don't give you enough food for two meals. (my azteca doggie bag is always eaten immediately the next morning!) (oh, and i'm so picky about my salsa, i'm always disappointed here.)

drink some root beer for me. how i miss root beer!

p.s SLC is PRETTY! never been there. must go!

Kristina P. said...

Be prepared to be freezing!! It is so freaking cold her. We got a major snow storm yesterday. OH, and we have In N Out here now. In case you're into that kind of thing. I am not.

Suzy said...

That does sound exciting, especially the shopping! However, if you haven't had flavored coffeemate in a long while, it's going to taste like shit after having the real stuff.

Read the label, that stuff is toxic for your weight and heart and tastebuds!

American in Norway said...

JEALOUS! - I hope you have a wonderful time at home,...

Deidra said...

I am so happy for you! I got all excited just reading your post. Salt Lake City is beautiful! I hope the ten days fly by!

Maggie May said...

Traci said...

Sounds like you have a wonderful trip awaiting you. Many of your favorites are mine, as well.

And the countdown begins!
:-)

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

How funny! I was stopping by to thank you for visiting my blog yesterday. I was all excited to get a visitor from Germany, but instead you turn out to be right from my own backyard. I'm here in Sandy. Welcome home!

Wear your woolies - we're having a heck of a cold snap. A high of 14 chilly degrees today.

Nancy Campbell said...

How fun! Utah looks lovely...never been, believe it or not.

beth said...

I bet you are so excited....

I would miss target and tj maxx horribly if they weren't right down the road from me....

I hope you have the best 3 weeks ever !

A Day That is Dessert said...

Hooray!!!

Unknown Mami said...

How can you live without Mexican food?

Expats Again said...

Just got back to Munich from the U.S. today, but we leave Sat. for Australia for the holidays.
Loved your excitement. Add seeing the moving "Blind Side" to your "Have to Do List." I promise you won't regret it. Sandra Bullock is awesome in this movie based on a true story about the life of Michael Orr, 2009 rookie for the NFL. It is getting amazing reviews!

Debra said...

I know you must be counting-not only days but hours. How wonderful for you to be home with family and friends for this special time of year. I bet you'll be able to pull off bringing back your treats...let us know how the creamer does.
