What I've Learned From Southern Bloggers, Part One

I've learned that I am seriously deprived way Up North here! I keep reading all about the glories of Sonic and Chick-Fil-A (which for a while, I'm embarrassed to admit I was running around pronouncing as Chick-Filla, not as Chick-Filet...I'm blond, give me a break), to which, I'm sad to say, I do not have access! There are a few wayward Sonics in Michigan, but they are not near by and are not located in places blond girls go alone in search of heaven fast food.

Oh how I wish I could pull up to this menu and order a cherry limeade....
Or, when craving a special indulgence, this lovely meal....Just add this to my list of reasons to evacuate move South!

I'll have a Sonic Diet Coke with vanilla for you soon!

Milltini said...

Oh my gosh, we are totally deprived...I crave Chick-fil-a ALL THE TIME!

GingerSnap said...

Haha, maybe you don't have those, but you have plenty of other places we don't have! Mejirs, Red Robbin, Jack in the Box, BoJangles, etc. We do have PUBLIX though, which is the best grocer ever!

You are so deprived! Sonic and Chick-fil-a especially at breakfast are the best!!

KatherineBee said...

We actually have Chick-fil-a in San Diego and recently just got our first Sonic, which has been busy since the day it opened. You'd think with the southern food resurgence it would mean nicer people and classier clothes, but no, just more fast food. :)

We have ONE single CFA in Omaha - it's inside of the Mutual of Omaha building or something silly! I've not been there though, so I feel you!

Semi-Slacker love their Chick-Fil-A. Best peach milkshake E.V.E.R! Move quickly!

Muffy said...

OOH, now I want some Chick-Fil-A sweet tea!!! THE VERY BEST!!!!

Summer Wind said...

That stinks that you don't have a sonic or a chik-fil-a! I love them!! I live in the north east and we have had a chickfila for a while now and we recently got a sonic

tickledpink said...

I hate that you don't have a chick-fila or a sonic. I am a BIG fan of chick and know a couple of the workers by name I go there so often! If you are ever on a road trip heading south keep your eyes peeled out because there are a ton of sonics in the south, and a good many chicks! Just another reason why you need to come visit us in the south!:)

As an East Coaster living in the South, trust me when I tell you Chick-fil-A is God's little gift to the South.

Sonic is just meh except for the drinks and desserts. It is worth it for a Sonic Chill!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Haha! Oh my sweet friend! You are deprived! Those are THE best fastfood places out there!

Jennifer said...

When you make it down here we are going to have to get you a chicken biscuit. They are quite possibly the best thing you could ever eat!

The Pink Tutu said...

Oh how I feel for you! I'll drink a diet cherry limeade in your honor. I don't know what I'd do without Chik-Fil-A! Yum yum!!

Black Labs and Lilly said...

I couldn't agree more! I would love to move down south for the fast food joints alone!

Cool Gal said...

We don't have Chick-Fil-A in MN, but my southern friends talk about it all the time. Boo-hoo. :(

Sounds so delicious.

QueenBeeSwain said...

uuugggh- just because we live in the Tundra doesn't mean that we might not like the same fast food as our Southern buddies!

the Chick-Fil-A looks beyond amazing.

PS- you're talking to the queen of blondes- nothing too out there :)

Chik-Fil-A is also in California, which makes me oh so very happy. It's like a little slice of heaven in the land of fruits and nuts. ;o)

Now if we could just get a Cracker Barrel out here my life would be complete.

Chic-fil-a is one of my all time favorite places. Their chicken sandwiches are just the best. I am sorry you don't have one closer to you! Then again - that might be a good thing when you consider how much heathier I would eat if I wasn't so close to one ...

Enjoy your week!

There's a new Sonic in your area and there is one at Birch Run too.

Digital memory is something that I seem to be unable to ever have enough of. It feels like megabytes and gigabytes have become an inseparable part of my day to day existence. Ever since I bought a Micro SD Card for my NDS flash card, I've been on permanent watch for large memory at cheap prices. I feel like I'm going insane.
