This week we are joined by an uber special guest to talk about holiday traditions! Jo’s husband!
From Karaoke sessions, to opening gifts at 6 am, all the way to elaborate talent shows, we talk about all the cute and absolutely ridiculous traditions that happen during our family gatherings! (& yes of course we gossiped about our aunts) We also took some time to discuss new couple traditions that we’ve started on our own.

Last week we “Met Mike”, this week we are thrilled to introduce to you to our 3 lovely bachelorettes!
These 3 ladies are all super eligible in their own ways! It’s safe to say that all of them have their SH*T together!- You’re welcome Mike!
We went through these bachelorettes' bios line by line and were so intrigued by some of their answers, we had to call them for clarification. One bachelorette said she was looking for someone to try NEW things with her in ALL aspects of life ;) … (you can use your own imagination) while another invited her roommate to chime in to offer some REAL truths about what she thinks her friend needs in her life. HINT: apparently NOT a hippie with a man bun!
We can’t wait for you to get to know our wonderful bachelorettes!

Let’s Talk Basic will be trying something NEW this coming month! With our obsession/ addiction to the “Bachelor” TV series, we are excited to make our own mini-version and play match-maker for our dear friend Mike! We will be setting him up with some amazing women, and will be in charge of planning their fun-filled dates for him!
In this episode, we sit down with Mike and get to know him! And then things take a weirdddd turn and Vanessa reveals a secret about herself.

On this episode, we talk about the ENNEAGRAM. You may have heard us talking about our "numbers" in previous episodes, or from other people, and wondered what the heck is everyone talking about.
It's like a personality system, similar to Meyers Briggs, that says everyone has a basic personality type that explains motivations and behaviours.
We run through the 9 basic personality types, talk about what number we are (can you guess?!), and how we've seen it in our own lives, to understand ourselves better and the people around us.

This week’s episode is extra fun! We invited our awesome friend Christina to discuss the UPS and DOWNS of being in an interracial relationship.
Joanne and Christina both share their stories being Asian (Chinese and Korean) married to white guys. Join us as we laugh at embarrassing stories about their husband’s first meeting with their families, and learn about all the cultural differences they've had to overcome and endearing family traditions that they have adapted as their own.
Trust us, you don’t have to be in an interracial relationship to enjoy this one, In fact you don’t have to be in a relationship at all! Because somewhere during our discussion we burst out into tears laughing about the confusion that Christina’s husband had during their traditional Korean wedding in which he had zero idea about what was going on.
This is absolutely one of the funniest episode we have recorded thus far! We can’t wait for you to tune into this one!

Children… YaY or NaY?
Kids are soooo adorable! From their cheeks, to their soft skin to the smell of their baby skin, everything about them is just (Heart Eyes)… but to choose a life without children and have extra cash to spend on vacation is undeniably an extremely attractive option as well!
This week we dive into the YAYS and NAYS of having children and whether we see them in our futures or not!
We have soo many fun stories to share about our friend’s kids, how our relationships have evolved with friends with kids, and what we “THINK” we would be like as parents… key word: THINK.

Cheating… have you done it? Have you experienced it and how do you define it?
This week we discuss a sensitive topic that often bring up many different emotions.
Whether you are on the receiving end of it, the one acting on it, the one who witnessed it, or the one comforting someone who has been cheated on… at the end of the day…it’s all heartbreaking and an emotional roller coaster.
One of us has been through EVERY SINGLE ONE of the scenarios above… and let’s just say it’s not pretty and something that took years to process and understand! BUT if you are going through this now or helping someone through this journey… one thing we can guarantee, is that there is light at the end of the tunnel! :)
