This week we are joined by a special guest and dear friend that we'll call "Basic Mom", to talk about what it's really like to be a mom! Needless to say we had many questions for her and luckily for us she leaves nothing off the table and tells us all the unfiltered truths about getting pregnant, mom-guilt, terrible twos and a lot that we have zero clue about. This basic mom gives us an inside look into how much they go through and remind us why moms are so important in our lives.

Season 2 Episode 21: Mother’s Day Celebration Guide

May 3, 2020

Like many celebrations this year, Mother’s Day will also look a little different. In times like these we all need to be a little creative, go the extra mile to make our mamas feel loved!

So this week, we go through a list of 10 ideas on how to celebrate our moms virtually! As we go through this list vetted by Queen Oprah, we quickly realized Mother’s Day is not “one size fits all”! Some of these ideas may work for your mom (Care package), and others may not (Memory Jar). At the end of the day remember that it’s the thought and effort that matters, and with moms - a little really does go a long way!

We hope you can draw some ideas from our episode this week. We can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeves for your mom!

April 12, 2020

Warning: Episode contains spoilers! 
This quarantine has sucked us into the “Joe Exotic” phenomenon. We really did not want to click on this Netflix series, but with not much to do, and constantly being bombarded with memes of Joe and Carol on IG, we finally caved.

This week we do a deep dive of why we think this show is soo popular, who we think is the real “villain”, and which parts we think were the most outrageous in this documentary.

Whether you are fascinated with the series, or still having second doubts about binge-ing this odd show, join us and find out where we think Carol’s husband really is!

We discuss how being isolated at home and spending 24/7 together really does accelerate a relationship and wonder how many couples will survive this “challenge” ... this scenario reminds us of Bachelor In Paradise

One of us reveals an extremely awkward moment during a conference call this week... trust me this one tops it all!
