This weekend, my mom, uncle and I made the voyage to Pikeville, Kentucky for quite the unique festival: Hillbilly Days.
So was the moonshine I drank with my cousin, Amy.
As was the first fried oreo I’ve ever tried. So is the fact that my life is forever changed. No big deal.
Speaking of fried food, there was no shortage of it in downtown Pikeville this weekend. While I didn’t get any porky cheese fries, I did try some butterfly chips (SO GOOD) and chicken on a stick.
Also real life: the amount of beer consumed by my mother, uncle, and cousin Kevin.
Our cousin Kevin threw one hell of a party on Saturday night. There was a live band, moonshine, tons of food, matching shirts and jorts. I mean seriously, what more could anyone possibly want?
While 15 hours in the car was painful (thanks to Danny for driving!) it was absolutely worth it. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I laughed so hard for such an extended period of time. I feel insanely lucky that my family members are also my friends!
