July 28, 2019

“Match made in heaven” “My one true love” – what do you feel when you hear those phrases? Are you making heart eyes? Or are you cringing with a questionable face?

This week we discuss our thoughts on whether there is only ONE person in the world, that is completely made just for you! Take a second and look back at your first love, your most painful heartbreak, that guy you almost dated, and the person you should have given a second chance to. How would that have played out and impacted your life? Listen as we go back and forth on this topic and struggle to find common ground.
One of us thinks there are 100s of people who we could end up with (Really? 100s!?) and the other truly believes that there is only ONE true love (Hopeless Romantic Much!?)

Come along for ALL our “WHAT IF” moments- but make sure to DRINK UP!

Episode 6: Rings and Lobster Things

Episode 6: Rings and Lobster Things

June 9, 2019

On this week’s episode we continue with PART II of our “Wedding Series”… RINGS!!
Whenever the topic of rings arise, naturally we think about the “engagement” and the man getting down on one knee and the woman with a “shocked” face screaming YES! – pretty accurate eh?

In this episode we discuss how the diamond industry is ruining lives for all of man-kind! Men are pressured into buying “ring-pop” sized diamonds, because shows like ABC’s The Bachelor, is now the standard “reality”!? ONE of us likes the idea of proposing to the man, while the other sides with tradition.

Does size matter? Do you care about how the diamond was sourced? When in a relationship should you bring up “the engagement”? Are you dying to know who gave Joanne a LOBSTER on her wedding day!? Yes I repeat a LOBSTER! – Trust me… it will make your jaw drop LOL
