"Headed down south to the land of the pines, I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline"
I got a thrill last week and was offered 2 job interviews in North Carolina. I love the opportunity for a ROAD TRIP!!!!!! Luckily my sister lives in Carrboro so I had a place to crash and spend time with one of the cutest dogs ever, sweet little Norm. To prepare for my first ever professional interviews where the attire was more than khakis, I headed to the mall for my killer new outfit. I feel like a boss! Interviews went well but my favorite part was spending time Chapel Hill, taking pictures of Norm and getting my drink on. On my to do list next time I visit is to try a local treat called a "pickle back". This alcoholic libation is a shot of whisky followed by a chaser of pickle juice. MMMM, I LOVE PICKLES! Maybe this is common fair at all bars but I have yet to try this yet and it appears to be a common order at the local watering holes in NC. Last time I was exploring Chapel Hill I hit up Sugar Land, a spot for sweet treats like gelato, girlie drinks and cupcakes. Last time I was there is was 90 degrees plus killer humidity so I sampled their delicious gelato. This time around it was much cooler. I sampled one of their red velvet cupcakes. One of the most expensive/fancy cupcakes I've ever treated myself to. I didn't want to look unrefined so I ate it with a fork like everyone around me. My trip concluded with my first time experience at Sheetz. I think it's the south's version of WAWA. They make sandwiches on pretzel buns with the choice of "boom sauce". I took my chances and had the boom sauce, DELISH! It's pretty much a mayonaise based spread with hot sauce in it. I know this will probably offend WAWA lovers but Sheetz was WAY better. Can't wait to get another sandwich there.

Did you go shopping at the Loft? I feel like I recognize those dressing rooms!
