The Big Boo Cast, Episode 302

It’s probably not a surprise to anyone, but after the first big weekend of college football, this episode is A Lot of Sports. This is also what we like to refer to as our happy place. And while our sound wouldn’t pick up Melanie’s little noisemaker for some reason, we did not let that deter us from our first round of Side Eyes and I See Yous for this new season. We won’t always talk about football quite this much, but it seemed right and fitting for the first big game weekend.

We also discuss our recent closet clean-outs, our Empty Nest Feelings, and our desperation to have actual conversations with our children. Plus it’s my turn for Five Favorites.

Hope y’all enjoy!

    Hi Sophie —

    Quick question — I know you used to use the same hairspray I do — John Frieda. But I believe I’ve developed an allergy or bad reaction to it and need to switch. Which spray did you use now? I have fine hair that does not do well in humidity! Love love love the podcast and your books!!

  3. Melanie – way to bury the lead. CAROLINE HAS A BOYFRIEND?
    On another note, has anyone found a way to keep the Target 5 favorites shirt wrinkle free?
    Talking about football, my dog was hiding under the table a great deal of the weekend, especially during the game between my beloved UNC Tarheels and App State. Probably due the volume at which I was encouraging them to finish the dang tackle.
    Sophie – please reconsider watching The Blind Side. It’s a great football movie.
    Love you guys!
