3. Amount of Time it took me to realize that Hardee’s and Carl Jr’s are the same restaurant: Way Too Long (What is up with that?).

  1. It took moving to Texas from Utah for me to learn to appreciate sweet tea. Now I think there is a minimum daily requirement in our house. :p

  2. Brittany,
    You are a hoot! I spent most of my life in the south and never really did understand sweet tea, although my husband swears by it.

  3. you crack me up girl. i love sweet tea. i would smack someone if they stared blankly while i asked.

    have a good weekend, darlin.

  4. This was so funny. Thanks for making me LOL on a stressful Friday!
    Try ordering 'English Breakfast Tea' and see where it gets you... I'd be interested in whether ordering it there gets the same reaction as it does in Michigan?!

  5. LMAO I love your list :) I wonder if I can come up with something as entertaining about moving from Malaysia to Chicago?

  6. @Mom-I bet it will get an even more extreme reaction!

    @Lynne-I bet you could just think about the things that make each place different.

  7. OMG! You crack me up. Love your stats, Dude. I LOVE Jack in the Box tacos! I grew up in Houston, TX but now live in Conway, AR where there is no alcohol and no Jack in the Box. WAAAAA! :)

  8. Hi Brittany,

    For quite sometime you have been a consistent constant entrecard dropper of mine. Much appreciated. Now there's an opportunity for me to say that what a kind soul you are. If you got time, please check out my blog.


  9. I say dude all the time too! I was just noticing that last night that almost everytime I speak to my husband I call him dude.


I love comments, and I always read my comments. But sometimes I make a mental note to go comment back on your blog, and then forget to (Even if I’m an avid read of your blog, whoops). Since I'm so bad about this, I will mostly reply to comments in my comment section, so please check back! If you have something pressing to talk to me about you can e-mail me at
