  9. Ah I love anything with sweet potatoes in it! I don't know what North Carolina sweet potatoes are, but I'd guess that they're just as delicious as the ones we eat up north. Can't wait to try this!

  10. Yeah at the last concert I went to, the people sitting next to me were practically injecting heroin. I tried to avert my eyes so that I couldn't testify in court...but I swear that's what it seemed like. :P

    I LOVE this milkshake! Wholesome and filled with my favorite orange veggie!
