The Big Boo Cast, Episode 298

This week Melanie recaps the time she spent decorating Caroline’s apartment this past weekend, and I lament an unexpected change with my email. We also discuss the surprising cost of Command hooks, a new season of one of our favorite shows, and the preseason Top 25 Coaches’ Poll.

On top of all that, we marvel that our brains have held onto all the Olivia Newton-John lyrics from our childhood, and it’s my turn for Five Favorites.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 297

Since our last episode Melanie and Perry have moved Caroline into her new place in College Station, and I have been all manner of productive rounding up things for Alex’s dorm room. Apparently both of us have been feeling our feelings about this particular transition, so we dig into that a little bit.

We also talk about Bama Rush Tok (will it be a thing this year? WE HOPE SO), what we’re watching, and a book I’ve been loving. Plus, it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 296

We’re back home after spending most of last week in Atlanta, and apparently we both have a lot of thoughts about how air travel could be more courteous and efficient (please keep in mind that I didn’t actually fly to Atlanta, but that doesn’t stop me from having an opinion). We also share our latest thoughts about moisturizers, eye shadows, and whether or not nutmeg belongs in a fruit cobbler.

On top of that, we talk about how we’re wrapping up summer with the college-aged people in our lives, and it’s my turn for Five Favorites.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 295

We recorded this episode from Day One of SEC Football Media Days earlier this week, and man oh man are we ever living our best lives. Obviously we talk about media days (day one, at least), and we discuss the obnoxious amount of clothes we packed for our time in Atlanta. We trust you would expect no less.

You’ll also hear Melanie’s shock / surprise / disappointment when she learns about another movie I’ve never seen, and we break down how we respond to conflict (here’s a hint: WE DON’T LOVE IT). Plus, it’s Melanie’s turn this week for Five Favorites.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 293

It’s been a slow week since we last recorded, but that didn’t stop us from digging into all sorts of exciting topics on this episode: picture frames, herbs, weather, and so many other things that pretty much scream WE ARE VERY BORING.

Fortunately we’ve watched a good bit of TV, so we break that down, and it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites.
