What Do We Miss?

Let me preface this blog by saying that we thoroughly enjoy living in Kazakhstan and wouldn’t trade it for anything! Also, hands down, the “thing” we miss the most is not things at all but people…. Family and friends and thankfully because of technology we are able to keep up with a lot of you Stateside. However, we do get asked a lot what we miss from America. SOME things on this list we most certainly CAN get here but at a very high price so we just as soon do without or stock up when we are in the US and just bring it back with us in our suitcases when we visit (or have friends graciously bring it for us)

  • Target
    Organic Fruit snacks
    Brookside chocolates
    Trader Joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups
    Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels
    Netflix shows that we don’t get in our region
    Watching American football games
    Did I mention Target?
    Frozen Chimichanga’s
    Ling Ling potstickers

    Driving (Charity) at any given time to go shopping (or as Andrew calls it, “browsing” 😏….most likely at Target) or to appointments
    Endless sizes and variations of Ziploc bags
    Bare minerals make up (Charity, not Andrew lol)
    Cotton balls (yes, the kind you use on your face for toner and removing make up or nail polish)
    Coldstone Creamery
    Being able to find *most* of life’s necessities in one store (AKA- Target)
    Household heat controlled by a thermostat
    Dr Pepper
