The Big Boo Cast, Episode 74


Well, we start off recounting some difficult times we’ve experienced in excruciatingly hot conditions. Our passion about this topic will surprise approximately no one. But then, in an unlikely turn, we discuss exercise: power walking, Melanie’s first yoga class, and a new fitness class that involves a mini tramp (Melanie may try it, so STAY TUNED).

We go on to share our thoughts about Costco, vacations, shorts, plus what we’ve been watching and reading. And naturally there’s a lengthy discussion about all the skin care knowledge (and tips!) Melanie gleaned on her recent video shoot. You might want to grab a pencil.

Finally, we talk a good bit about the NCAA women’s basketball tournament because BULLDOGS.

  1. I could watch that clip of Mo in that final shot over and over and it would NEVER GET OLD. Too bad we didn’t end up on top as national champions but MAN OH MAN, what a season. These girls have been fun to watch. They epitomize Mississippi State, character, grace, humble, FAMILY.

  2. Lee Ann says:

    I have an unhealthy obsession with the Carly dress! So glad to hear you’re on the boat too!

  3. Carrie T says:

    Yay! I just love your podcast! I think of you two every time I open my silverware drawer and my favorite spoon is there. Makes me smile every time. :D You all might just have me convinced to purchase a tube of Clarins lip perfector. I came across this lady’s post and found it very helpful when trying to select a color.

  4. I just finished Hungry Heart, too. I love Jennifer Weiner! And the thing I’ve been pondering the most is how she incorporated pieces of her Dad’s story into Then Came You…wow!

  5. Okay so I’m doing aomething called strong fit…safer than Crossfit and I love it! I turned 40 this year and felt just gross in my skin. Its been a blast..a fat blast. Lol

  6. The hairless cat…I was laughing so hard. When I try to retell these stories they are NEVER as funny as ya’ll tell them. Thanks for the laughs I really needed them today.
