The Big Boo Cast, Episode 173

A few episodes ago I mentioned how much I had loved watching Garth Brooks’ “The Road I’m On,” and this past week Melanie watched it. I wouldn’t say that we discuss it exhaustively in this episode, but we definitely circle back around to it a few times. That is because WE ADORE IT. We also talk about Melanie’s new books (it’s book launch week!), but we recorded before we knew that the foreword by Jen Hatmaker somehow didn’t make it into the actual book, so you can rest assured we’ll saddle up to that topic next week.

We also talk about a couple of books I’ve read and loved, what we’re planning to read during Lent, and a new (to me) K-cup discovery. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.

Enjoy, y’all!

    I watched the Garth Brooks doc based on you talking about before. It is unbelievable! I already had a deep love for him and now it is so so deep.

  2. I ordered Piper and Mable’s book for my 3 YO. She LOVED and so did I!

  3. The soup. Oh my goodness was it delicious! Please keep sharing recipes. I made it today and my husband and boys loved it. PS – I have no chicken issues ;)
