midwest girl at heart

I moved to California from Ohio 4 years ago and as embarrassing as it is, I haven't been back to my hometown in 3 years! Now, that doesn't mean family and friends haven't been out to the west coast to see me but still.... 3 years!

So! I'm finally heading to the midwest! I'm going to be so busy when I'm there, so many people to see and everyone is fighting for my time. It's funny how everyone expects me to spend my whole week with them. They aren't thinking about all my other family and all my friends that I grew up with and miss too! And, if I hear one more time that I should be staying 2 weeks rather than 1 week, I may cancel my trip. I already threatended this and it did shut some fam up. LOL!

This will be my third time back home since I moved out to California and I must say that the only thing that works for me is to set up my schedule for my time back home before I actually get there. It's the only way it can work!

My CRAZY scheldule:

Friday, May 29th
PM- Arrive in Cleveland @ 6:14 PM, stay at Molly's. *She doesn't know that I'm even coming in town. Her boyfriend is telling her that they need to go pick up his friend at the airport but it will really be me. She is turning 30 and her mom thought it would be a great surprise for her if I came home for her surprise birthday lunch. I was hoping to go home this summer any way so it worked out well.

One thing that I can't wait to do is hit up all my all time favorite and most missed restaurants that I grew up on!!!!

Luigis. My all time most fave restaurant and for those who know I'm a night owl... I love, love, love that they are open until 4 AM! I used to go here on average 4 times a week back in the day! I'm not exaggerating. Best bread! Best salad! Best baked lasagna! Best spaghetti with meat sauce! Best coke! I can't wait!

Paninis The very BEST overstuffed turkey sandwich ever! I lived on these in my college days!

Whitehouse Chicken! Yummy chicken, Yummy fries, Yummy colelsaw, Yummy bread!

Guluchs and Rendino's pizza! I love pizza and these are my two most fave places to get it!

I grew up on these places and I still can't find anything like them here in Cali. Some things are just not the same!

I'm really looking forward to this trip! I will be sure to post pics and tell you all about it once I get back!

PS!!!!! If you happen to be one of my facebook friends, PLEASE DO NOT mention this trip at all! Thanks! xo.

Is that Roma? My husband took a photo of me in the same spot last August. I suggest a solder charm 1"x1" of that photo for you to go on a necklace and one for him for his key chain. Buonasera Rita
