The Big Boo Cast, Episode 77


In this episode we talk about our summertime travel, the life-changing hummus I recently enjoyed, our current struggles with our hair, and our lack of business vision or insight or skill. Melanie also states her very strong feelings about being on a boat in the middle of a large body of water (suffice it to say that a cruise is nowhere in her future) and relays a tale about a very aggressive seagull.

We also talk about potential road trip destinations for next year, recap the summer movies we’ve seen (here’s a hint: I have only seen two), run through a few other entertainment highlights from the last month or so, and break down our feelings about the Instastory.

So there’s some variety, I guess.

You can click here to listen. Or here. You can even listen right here on the blog.

  1. I have GOT to stop thinking I can listen to y’all on morning runs. Because I seriously laughed so hard at the BBQ stealing seagull that I nearly bent over double on the side of the road. And I thought other people were going to get very concerned for my well being. Love you girls!!

  2. You may have talked about them before and I missed it, but I pretty much only wear tennis shoes. ( I have had back surgeries and they are just so comfortable. I have all kinds of Go Skechers that I can wear without socks with Capri pants or khakis to church. ) You are so right about the socks. I love Bombas. The socks are wonderful, but they donate a pair to homeless shelters for every pair they sell.
