Trader Joe's comes to Milwaukee!

We California transplants have been waiting for this for a LONG time. For the last 10 years we've been stocking up on our very occasional visits to the West Coast and begging and pleading with friends and family coming from California to bring a stock of all our essential items. It's funny because while putting together my all-things-mom binder, I actually made a Trader Joe's shopping list for those rare occasions.

And speaking of Californians living in Wisconsin, I had to drive home from co-op today - along many miles of country roads - through the worst slush and sleet (with plenty of lightning to keep things interesting) I've ever driven through. It was 65 degrees two days ago and suddenly we're down to 34 degrees and weather alternating between rain and ice. Ugh.

My wife's a So. Cal. transplant in the Midwest. She missed Trader Joe's so much that she wrote them and asked them to come to Kansas City. They declined.

I love Trader Joe's. I drive 40 min. to get to one up here.

Unfortunately I don't even know where Glendale is ... yet. :)

You must've been in hog-heaven when you lived just a couple minutes down the street from the TJ's in Carmel Mountain! ;-)

Well, that's where we got so attached to it of course, though we were first introduced to TJ's while we were at TAC.
