Me and Winnie (Minnie Winnie)

Bullets hits the road in a Minnie Winnebago, not for a road trip mind you, for her everyday errands. Yep, she traded in her beloved Dodge Challenger so that our Dad and his hunting crew would have a vehicle to take hunting on the weekends. If that's not true love, I don't know what is!

Traveling with Kids: To Judge or Not to Judge?

 Basically I have been eating humble pie ever since becoming a parent. Experiences like this are the reason we wanted to create a collection of t-shirts, onesies and totes that made light of how stressful traveling with kids is for parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents etc....We wanted to also remind people to show a bit of compassion on the flight when there is a screaming child next to you or a little size three show keeps kicking your seat. We promise we are trying our best to keep our kids calm, quiet and in their seat during the flight. We are sorry our kid just barfed in your lap, really sorry!

Mamaw's Angel Food Cake

***side note- My husband is from Southern Kentucky and the cuisine is quite different than the food in the midwest. When my mother-in-law shared this recipe with me I had no clue what one of the ingredients was- "1 small can Pet milk". I re-read the recipe a few times thinking- "please God, let this not be milk from an actual pet." To my relief I Googled Pet Milk and found out that it is an actual brand of condensed milk, not milk from a family pet.
