things I miss from the States

So a few of you have been asking about what it is like here in Chihuahua and how it compares to the States. To be completely honest, there are lots of things here from the States, because we are so close to the border. El Paso, TX is only a four hour drive away, so people make the trip more often than you would expect. I go to Walmart or some other grocery store about once a week, and for the most part, they have just about everything I would like to buy. However, there are some things that they don't have here that I miss, such as:

1. Chick-fil-A
2. Sour Patch Kids
3. Black people makeup (but I can hardly find that in the States either)
4. reasonably priced holiday decorations
5. Kashi cereal or granola bars 
6. canned pumpkin
7. sweet tea
8. grits
9. sweet potatoes 
10. Clif bars
11. and to make it uneven...Target 

So....a few of you have asked what I would like/want to receive in the mail. And there you have it. Use your judgment. I mean, as much as I would love to receive a #1 from Chick-fil-A in the mail, I don't think it would taste too good freeze-dried...

And fyi, just plain old snail mail is also quite encouraging! My mommy is pretty good at that. :)
