House-Shaped Hives

Fake Break

Emily and Tsh start off chatting about stuff like end of the school year, test-taking, taking a break from work, and changing jobs—grownup stuff, in other words. In fact, Emily’s husband (and therefore, whole family)…

The Wayback

Megan’s still in the thick of the early days with these cuties: And so we need to talk about light-hearted stuff. Or more specifically, light-hearted TV. Shows we dig, just for laughs: The Mindy Project…

Talk About Magic

Yay—Megan’s back! She’s had her TWIN babies, so we get nitty-gritty with the baby stuff. Project Simplify. Are you in? Harry Potter! Let’s talk about it.   Yes, there are SPOILERS in this episode—BUT we…

The Plate Whisperer

Tsh and Myquillyn are together, talking about the weirdness that is their names. (At least Myquillin has a normal last name…) She recently revealed her name, and… everything’s fine. (And then wrote about being debt-free!)…

All These Sports Analogies…

Tsh is back after knee surgery, so it’s time for another episode! This time she’s talking again to Kat from Inspired to Action. Surgery went well. Tsh’s new best friend is an ice cooler. Kat’s…

Life is Good Again

Tsh and Kat are back at it! Tsh is over the flu now, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t still miss Texas. Kat loves her Texas 70-degree winters, but wouldn’t mind a day of Tsh’s…
