Top Ten List.

My Blogger Buddy, Kimber, did this yesterday. Its suppose to be a Top Ten Tuesday, but I am not organized enough to get blogs done on the write days, just ask my *Group Girls* how terrible I am at posting things on the day I have planned to post them. BUT better late then never.

Top Ten Reasons I miss New Jersey

1. My parents and brother live there. Isn't that reason enough??

2. The possibility of a White Christmas. I guess it could snow here on Christmas, but it would be a freak occurrence.

3. Wawa. If you don't know what Wawa is, well I suggest you head to the Philadelphia/South Jersey area and find out

4. Going down the shore. You'd think living on the Gulf of Mexico we'd have beaches.. NOPE, we have swamps.

5. My friends and their kids. Wow I miss them.

6. THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES!!! Watching game on the website is not the same.

7. Cheesesteaks, hoagies, pork roll,water ice, bagels, and pizza. *droooling*

8. No huge worries about hurricane season. Sometimes I feel like we are all walking on eggshells down here from about June-Nov. Watching the weather can be nerve wracking, to say the least.

9. Only being 6 hours from my family in Massachusetts. Funny, how 6 hours seemed like a lifetime away when I lived in NJ and now it seems like nothing

10. Lower humidity. I remember complaining about the heat and humidity in NJ, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH I was so naive! It is 65987324092357243 times hotter and more humid here. If you have never been in the deep south in July/August, you have NO idea what hot and humid is, I PROMISE.

I jumped over from WLW and you just put a HUGE smile on my face!

I'm a former Jersey-girl myself (been removed to CA for the last 10 years) and would add living 30 minutes from NYC, vinegar fries, and Diners.

I also *may* have a tee-shirt that lives in my closet and never sees the light of day that reads "Jersey girls aren't trash-- trash get picked up." DOes that make me a closet Jersey-girl?

hope you get to visit soon!
