    Simply Southern Saturdays

    We have two days left in Japan, and though our feet and hearts are still here, our minds have been...wandering.

    We arrive in Los Angeles early Monday morning and though our priority is locating schools for the children, we've been planning for other things as well.

    The two we're most excited about? Where we want to eat and where we want to shop. Husband will be doing a bit of work while we're out there, so some of these plans will probably come to fruition while he's not with us.

    While in L.A. we're staying here, The Four Seasons in Westlake Village.

    And in case you didn't know you were in Los Angeles, their spa not only offers the normal assortment of fabulous treatments, but also cosmetic dentistry as well as botox and restylane injections. Ouch!

    While touring our new home city, we'll probably pick up some yummy snacks here:

    Pinkberry, Sprinkles, In 'n Out Burger...My appetite can hardly wait.

    We also want to hit these favorite stores which we've missed oh so much!

    Then there are the ones we've read about, restaurants, bakeries, food trucks galore. Again, it's a good thing we'll be in L.A. for years, because it's going to take time to try them all!

    And we cannot wait.

    See y'all back in the good ole U-S of A!

    Welcome back to the States! Wow, L.A. - that'll be exciting! I'm sure the weather is amazing out there- certainly not the mugginess we're experiencing here in the South. Good luck with the school hunt!

    We had 3 overseas assignments in our Army career and I found that one of the dumb little things I really missed, no matter how much I loved the assignment, was a good American supermarket. It made going to the grocery store a treat for many months after each return.
