We are wrapping up 2016 with a list of all our favorite things! But first Heather gets all suburban gangsta on you and Copper recalls how she almost died by tortilla chip while Heather watched.
We start the show with Copper confused about what her name is and it goes downhill from there. Heather and Copper reflect on the Thanksgiving break and our brief stint as band groupies. Then we discuss the battle of the dad bod vs the mom bod and how none of it really matters anyway.
Heather and Copper talk about our plans for Thanksgiving week, how many carbs can one person really eat, and how our OCD takes a back seat to the kids decorating the tree. Sort of, atleast until they go to bed. Then we move on to talk about how we deal with full houses and husbands who travel for a living. It's a little bit of crazy and a whole lot of maca and chheese.
Heather and Copper talk how we spent Halloween, Copper's first conference, and our big project for December. We then discuss the craziness that is our day to day as bloggers, podcasters, and moms. It definitely is busier than either of us ever intended but we love it! We also discuss reaching big goals, like 1000 downloads (what, what!!) and realizing that we are accidental trendsetters in podcasting.
Copper and Heather talk about the randomness of our texts, creepy store bathrooms, and the realness of Heather's addiction to gifs. Then we take turns answering questions pulled out of a bag, covering bucket lists, favorite children, and movies about male strippers.
We went a little off the rails this week and talked about a lot of things. A LOT OF THINGS. You will learn a little more about our anatomy than you probably care to know. But then we head into a struggle a lot of people deal with, burnout. What is it? What are the causes? How do you get better? We may have the answers, although we need to work on using them. Also Red stops by and says poop.
Heather hates bananas, Copper REALLY loves chicken wings, and we both fangirl a lot! We try to remember how we met and talk Copper's ability to overshare from the get-go. We go over what we think 8 year olds would list as life tips and discuss our children (and ourselves) and the theory of birth order effect.
This episode is a plethora of how we are "failing" as parents and yet, our kids are survivng. Even happy and healthy! We also talk lady grooming and what color of candle you should never buy!
Heather and Copper discuss the world of Sanctimommies. Do we know them? Are we part of the problem? We then move on to Would You Rather?
Heather talks about her relaxing weekend in Austin and Copper shops for a tent. We discuss our problems with social media and then encourage you to spend more time on it, following us. Wrapping it up, stories from the car line. Heather checks her Facebook and Copper fights road rage and listens in on people's phone conversations, all while plucking her eyebrows.
Fall is upon us! Listen as we discuss the pumpkin flavor craze. Do we love it? Do we hate it? We move on to football season. Who we root for, the yummy foods, and our love of JJ. Our Pinterest obsession takes over and we announce a new project where we will try different pins and give our listeners our honest reviews.
Heather and Copper are back to the mic after a little end of summer break! We talk about wrapping up the summer, vacation stress, and Henry's run in with a chair at Culvers. Back to school had it's speed bumps but we managed it well and treated ourselves to margaritas and a walk in the rain. Heather shares how to save money at the movies AND how to get the yummy butter dispersed throughout the popcorn.
Heather and Copper talk the difficulties they run into making this week happen. They then bring in Jackie, age 5, to chit chat about what he would do on a date and whether or not he really needs to wear underwear. Finally they compare notes on picky eaters and how they both manage their big families at meal time. Copper reminds Heather that there is a very important board missing from their Pinterest board, booze!
Heather and Copper spend the weekend in San Antonio. It is just like Sex in The City but with no sex and more PTA talk. Then we talk about our twenties and what we would tell us if we could get in a time machine and head back to the 90's.
We talk about some of our proudest mommy highlights, mostly about frogs and bodily functions. Later we give you some great tips for road tripping with kids and read some ideas from our listeners.
Copper and Heather discuss vacationing with kids, Copper's weekend away, and the crazy things our kids say. Later we talk about the difference between growing up in the South and North. The soda/pop argument, the importance of saying "Bless her heart." after talking bad about someone, cow poop games, and taste testing some delicacies.
In episode 2, Heather and Copper will talk about our summertime plans with the kids. Do we schedule every minute or let them figure it out on their own? Also our first regular segment, Mom Crushes. This week we talk about musical artists. Or as we call it, the battle of the Justins.
