Hey everybody! We are back with another one of our favorite episodes! This is our final week of our three week break and we chose an episode from waaaay back to repeat! We thought that with the January approaching, money is a great thing to have a conversation about heading into the new year! We loved, loved, loved Smart Money, Smart Kids by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze, and for episode 18 (yes… one HUNDRED episodes ago!! Haha!!), it was one of our book club choices! If you haven’t listened to that episode (or if you haven’t read the book), listen in and hear about all that we learned. It’s also a great gift idea for moms and dads you may know (or yourself!). You can find the show notes to that episode here.And don’t forget, we are reading Little Women for our next book club! You have just under 2 weeks to cross the finish line!We will be back next week with our super special Christmas episode featuring our kiddos! Have a great week, mamas! Christmas is ALMOST HERE!!
December 9, 2019
Hey everybody! It’s great to be back with you again with another awesome episode! As you may know, we are taking a few weeks off in December and repeating some of our favorite episodes for you. This week, we chose to repeat episode 54, where we chatted with the amazing women of Bravery Magazine. We selected this episode because we love what Elyse and Ashley have created in Bravery Magazine and we wanted you to hear from them if you missed this episode when it first aired, AND because we think it’s a great idea for a Christmas gift for a little one in your life! The show notes for the original episode can be found here.And don’t forget to be reading Little Women! (You know, in all that holiday spare time! ;)) Many of you have maybe already read it, or you can choose to listen to it! Either way, we’ll be discussing what we’ve learned from Marmie soon. AND, we’ll be letting you know about our Mommin’ Movie Meet Up December 27th to SEE the movie together! Details to come…. Hope you are ALL UP in all things holiday right now and enjoying family and friends and this beautiful season. Have a great week, mamas!

Last year, we took a bit of a break in podcasts during December, and this year we are doing that again! So for the next three weeks, we will be repeating some of our favorite episodes. Today’s episode is a Christmas repeat from two years ago - all about Santa, gifts, and stockings! You can find ALL the show notes to the original episode here!If you remember this episode, but haven’t caught up on all of our episodes, now is a great time to be binge listening! We have 115 episodes to choose from! Woohoo!And don’t forget to be reading (or listening to) Little Women with us! We will be discussing this on our December 30th episode, buuuuuut on December 27th, we are planning a “Mommin’ Movie Meet Up”!

Hey everybody! Happy Thanksgiving!! It is Thanksgiving week - how is that possible??! As moms, we are all too familiar with how quickly time continues to pass. Hopefully, this week, we will all be able to sloooow down and give deliberate attention to those things for which we are incredibly thankful. We would love to know the things that make you feel #blessed!! Obviously, we are all so thankful for family, friends, church, our homes, careers… but what are some other things that make you stop and truly feel full of gratitude? We would love to hear from you!!For us two, we are thankful for longtime friends. We’ve mentioned our supper club before, and just a week ago, we got away for 48 hours for the very. first. time. ever! Literally, this supper club has been going for about 9 years, and this was the first girls trip! So what better than to bring our podcast gear along and record a conversation! Not all of the girl gang was present at the point at which we hit record, but we love that we get to introduce you to some of our (hashtag)tribe. 😂 And no, Nathan was not along for that part. We hit record all by ourselves and it worked!This direction of this conversation was maybe a bit planned out, but that was for our safety AND yours. Haha! We just want to encourage you to find co-mom-unity. Find it! It’s not magical, it takes work, even some conflict, and it takes stick-to-it-iveness. Invite some friends over for food, coffee, a book club, whatever! Just do it however feels comfortable for you. We can not live in isolation, especially as moms. It may even feel awkward at first, but keep on! It’s worth it. If you need some ideas or encouragement, or have any questions, post them below! We would LOVE to help you find community where you are.From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Leslie is totally into Slip Silk Pillowcase, but since Jennifer has talked about this, she also brought Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil to the table.Emily is totally into Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset Tea. Jennifer likes the Harney and Sons Paris!Amy is totally into Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Pro Balm Face Primer - it’s like wood putty for yo’ face!Julianne is totally into Ma Bella Goat’s Milk Soap… almond vanilla smells amazing!Jennifer is totally into The North Face Chabot Crew Shirt - she wore it for a week straight earlier this month!Courtney (and so many others) is totally into Disney+! Have you tried it yet?Amy is our resident podcast junkie and we had her give three recommendations. She is loving The Bible Project, Don’t Mom Alone, and The Briefing.And don’t forget our next Book Club pick- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. It’s a beautiful choice and fun read for over the holidays! Have a great week, mamas! HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We are so thankful for you!!

Hey mamas! We can’t believe we are more than halfway into November! That means TWO things: One, the holidays are right around the corner, and two, the New Year is right behind them! We love January around here, and the hope and excitement that comes with a new year - new vision, new goals, organizing, all the fun things! One thing that has been at the top of Jennifer’s goal list for 2020 is getting her pictures organized, backed up, and ready to begin making albums! And with that, we have a super awesome guest on today’s episode to help us all with just that! Our sweet friend, Kate, has been a guest on the show before! She chatted with us on episode 46, where we discussed the book, All You Need to Know About Raising Girls. And she’s back this time with all her expertise on PHOTOS! This can be an overwhelming project for a lot of us moms, both in getting started and in maintaining! She explains all the things we need to know about photo storage, external hard drives, “the cloud,” and albums. Annnnnd, she has an amazing ebook she created that you can find here, and has graciously given Mommin’ listeners a code for 25% off! This book is 61 pages, chock full of all the good information we talked about (and MORE), and the discount code you can use is MAE25. (That makes it $5.24!!! You literally cannot beat that.) If you purchase her ebook, you will also get access to a private Facebook group for ebook readers where you can ask questions and post ideas. She will also be offering a “book club” after the start of the year to slowly go through each section as a group. Jennifer will be in this group, so stay tuned for more details!Kate also mentioned in this episode that she has created a bundle of five photo presets to enhance your photos and make them stunning! You just need the Lightroom CC app and you can purchase them here AND use MAE25 again for 25% off of them as well! What?!?!She also mentioned her favorite external hard drive is the WD 2TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive. The Samsung T5 is the other one she mentioned on the episode and felt it was a bit too expensive right now.Kate is available for free consultations at any time at this link. She offers a host of services including backing up and organizing photos to a hard drive, uploading them to a cloud of choice such as Amazon or Google, putting all of your photos into one place (including extracting them off old hard drives, DVDs, etc), and deleting duplicates). This service is available for both local and remote customers. You can also find her on her website and Instagram.From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Kate is totally into Art for Kids Hub - a fantastic dad and son YouTube channel with tutorials for drawing!Courtney is totally into old “Baby Nathan” videos. Her advice is to take more random home videos!Jennifer is totally into Adagio Teas ingenuiTEA Bottom-Dispensing Teapot - so great for enjoying your tea all day and getting every last bit of goodness from it!And lastly, we announced our next book for our book club at the end of this episode! It is…. drumroll…. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott! We are excited to have this sweet and charming classic to read through the holidays! And….. be sure to listen to the end of the episode where we discuss a Mommin’ Meet Up!! We will post more about the details as it gets closer!Big thanks to Kate for all her knowledge and discounts!! We can’t wait for the ebook club in 2020! Have a great week, mamas!

Hey everybody! Oh, we hope you are getting beautiful weather where you are! Leaves changing, temps dropping… all the fun fall things. We are excited about this week’s episode! We were invited by MUM Life, the sweet moms group at Thompson Station Church, to come speak to their amazing group of moms about a little over a week ago. We decided to bring along our gear, have a conversation, and record it for you guys! We got to chat about a topic we’ve had on our minds, and the ladies at MUM Life got to see how we do things behind the scenes. It was a fun day and we are so grateful to have hung out with them! If you are in the area, check out this special ministry run by Heather Houle and Helen Smallbone. They meet every Friday from 9:30-11:30. Thanks, MUM Life! We also finish out our episode catching up with New Mom Kristen! Baby Stone is TEN months old, y’all! Can you believe it?! We got to hear how he’s been doing and growing, and we just love him so much!From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Kristen is totally into the Magic Bullet Baby Bullet System! She says it’s 100% worth it!Jennifer is totally into researching bullet journaling (#BuJo). She hasn’t decided if it’s for her, but definitely been enjoying learning about it!Courtney is totally into Stance Socks!Thank you again, MUM Life! We loved hanging with you all! You have a special ministry! Have a great week, mamas!

Hey everybody! What a great two weeks we have had learning all about our appliances! If you have had a chance to listen to episodes 110 and 111, definitely go back and check them out. We’ve had a great response from you - you have learned so much with us! This week is our Book Club week! We are so excited about today’s book and hope you have had a chance to read it with us. It is Invited: The Power of Hospitality in an Age of Loneliness by Leslie Verner. And guess what? She is WITH US today! YESSSS!! We had some technical hilarity happening in the basement, which you might pick up on, but the discussion with her was still so, so good. We really, really loved this book so much and loved having her words and inspiration so fresh in our minds as we head into the holidays. She paints beautiful pictures of her time living in China for five years and other countries, and explains what she has come to learn from experiencing hospitality in other countries and cultures. We connected with her as we read it, seeing our own selves in her shoes, but were also inspired and even challenged. We cannot say enough how much we loved it, can you tell?!From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Leslie is totally into trying out sleep apps. She has been loving Sleep Sounds and Reflect !Courtney is totally into Banza pasta. Check out our link - the packaging is even pretty!Jennifer is totally into Simple Mills Fine Ground Sea Salt Almond Flour Crackers. Seriously SO yum if you are grain free, sugar free, soy free, vegan or paleo! Whew!Huuuuuge thanks to Leslie for not just writing this beautiful book, but chatting with us about it! Definitely check out her blog, her Instagram, and of course, HER BOOK (which you can also get as an audiobook with HER reading it!).

Hello everybody! We’re baaaack! We hope you listened to last week’s episode, because today is part 2! We had such a great response and we know you’re going to love today’s episode, too! Have you ever heard a two-part podcast about appliances?! Nope - we haven’t, either.So, let us reintroduce you to Phil from New Life Appliance Repair. Definitely look him up if you live in middle Tennessee and have any appliance repair needs. In this episode, we talked about dishwasher cleaner and Phil pointed us to Glisten or Affresh.From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Phil is totally into building Jeeps and off-road vehicles - so much fun!Courtney is totally into Good Grit Magazine - we both love Good Grit!Jennifer is totally into (still after five years) her huge Refrigerator/Freezer Combo! Y’all this is the BEST value for its size out there. Thank you, thank you to Phil for these fantastically useful two episodes! If you have any questions, let us know and we will see what we can do! Have a great week, mamas!
October 21, 2019
Hello everybody! We are thrilled to be back with you again this week! We are really excited about this week’s episode… which actually ended up turning into next week’s episode, too! We got to taping with our guest today and it was SO PACKED with such great, practical tips, that we went reeeeeally loooong, and decided to split it into a “part one” and “part two.” Would you believe that we talked for almost two hours about appliances?! Well, Jennifer has learned a really good thing or two from her “appliance guy,” and we decided to have him on the show! We PROMISE you that you will learn at least five things about your appliances that you didn’t know! With that said, we’d like to introduce you to our friend Phil from New Life Appliance Repair. He is local to middle Tennessee and an excellent resource for any repairs your appliances need. In this episode, Courtney mentioned Shout Color Catcher Dye Trapping Sheets, and Phil told us about the Dryer Vent Lizard and Dryer Vent Wizard. (Yes, lizard and wizard.) Check out those links to know more!We recorded our “I’m Totally Into…” segment, but since we decided after the fact to split up the episode, you’ll have to wait until the end of next week’s episode to hear what they are! ;) BIG thanks to Phil for taking the day off to drive up to us and tell us so much great information! We hope you found it as useful as we did! And we will see you back here next week for part two of all the appliance things! Have a great week, mamas!

Hey everybody! Happy October to you! It is fiiiiinally getting a tad bit cool around here and we are loving every bit of it! It rained all night and we woke up to FALL FEELS this morning! Yippee! And the holidays around the corner could mean lots of things to you, but we are kicking off our cool weather with a super fun subject - DISNEYLAND! That’s right! We had such a great response to our Disneyworld episode, and Courtney has D-Land on the brain, so we wanted to call in some experts and learn everything we need to know. In this episode, we have Eve back from Ep. 75 - Let’s Talk Disney with Special Guests Eve & Brittany! She is a Disney fan and planner and knows all the constantly-updating scoops. Joining Eve is a friend of ours, fellow radio man, and huuuuuge Disney fan (specifically DisneyLAND) - Chris Childers! If Chris totally sounds like a podcast expert, it’s because he hosts not one, but TWO sports talk radio shows on Sirius XM! You can subscribe to Sirius Radio to listen to him here, and find him on Twitter and Instagram!We won’t keep you in these show notes much longer, because there is SO much good stuff absolutely packed into this episode, but we mentioned three Disneyland websites to help get you planning:Disneyland DailyMagical Kinda MamaTim Tracker episode with tiny Sleeping Beauty Castle referencesFrom our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:Eve is totally into planning her trip to Disney’s Aulani Hawaii Resort!
