On Thursday I received a care package from my Mom for my birthday! It was full of American goodies, plus so little extras. My Mom really does know me, the only things not included in the care package were sushi (from I Love Sushi), frozen yoghurt (from U Swirl) and an In-N-Out burger. I suppose I'll let her off on those though!
My care package included (from left to right):
- Peacock Pashmina
- Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
- Frank's Red Hot Sauce
- Hidden Valley Ranch
- Disney Recipe Book
- Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Mix
- Onion Fridge Mate
- Tomato Fridge Mate
- Lemon Fridge Mate
- Fluffy Socks
- Christmas Classics DVD
- Hallmark Mother/Daughter Ornament
- Williams and Sonoma Red Velvet Cupcake Mix
- Serving Dishes
- Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Frosting
- Cupcake Wrappers
- Minerals Makeup Box
- Physicians Formula Nude Blush
It truly was filled with some of the things I miss from America, bare the obvious exceptions. I don't really think I'd want week old sushi or frozen yoghurt arriving at my door though. It really got me thinking about the little things you miss from your home country when you're living life as an expat.
What do you miss about your home country? Or what do you think you'd miss?
