This month it was decided that we need to have a catch up session BUT that we would keep it purposeful. Here’s what we covered: Important dates in September (there are a surprising amount of things to celebrate), glitter cuticles and back to school. Em talks openly about “breaking her brain” while trying to switch medications and we deep dive mascara. You know, the ushe.
This week for our 200th episode celebration Rebecky and Katie combined forces to surprise Emily with sweet sentiments, cutting sarcasm and a little bit of encouragement. It was so fun to take some time to reflect on the past 4 years. Thank you all SO much for being here and I’m so glad I get to celebrate with you!
Have you ever heard of a vampire facial? Ever considered a fanny pack for fashionable bike riding emergencies? This month we talk about the importance of treating yourself, or, as Tom and Donna from Parks and Rec say, “Treat Yo Self!”. This doesn’t have to be fancy or extravagant. We all need a little something fun to celebrate our fantastical selves every now and again. Listen to hear some of our tips and let us know what you like to do to treat yo self!
Are you feeling overwhelmed by the beginning of summer? Do you have any major plans? We shared a little bit of both + some of our favorite summer things and, as always, what is killing us softly. For Katie the ticks are killing her and her family softly and the Penderwick series is giving the Thomas crew life. In this episode you’ll understand why Em’s boss is constantly considering firing her and learn about two new summer drinks we love. Fake news is Em’s favorite and she really brought it this time. Thanks for listening to this summer-y summer epsiode, we hope you love it!
What are the signs YOU show when you need a mental health break? Do you think you could benefit from counseling but need some real-life details about it? We get deep about our own experiences with counseling and mental health issues but we also share some fun facts about some pretty outrageous arrests lately. Balance, right? From Justin Bieber to the Judds, we cover quite a lot in this episode.
This week the Struggling Sisters talk spring. Find out what we found in our planters and what we’re planting next. Some spring blooms have brought up past trauma for Em and there is a little update on the new jobs. Em springs some spring facts on us and Katie discovers what spring fever is. This summer we urge you to join us a Jesus craft camp! Details below, you will LOVE IT!
Do you need a laugh break? Have you always wanted to know the truth about St. Patrick’s Day?
This week we give you a quick rundown of St. Patrick’s day history (as we understand it) and we explore some Irish phrases and accents that we enjoy. The original plan was to focus on community so Emily shared her normal community “fake news”. A quick round of Are You into That? helped us determine we aren’t scrunchie girls anymore, even if it’s cool.
I don’t even have a place to BE in this house! What am I even going for design-wise?
These are valid and we are here to help! Struggling Sisters are at it again talking about how to make your house into a sanctuary with our organization tips plus ideas on how to make your very own most-favorite spot. Em shares how hard it is to wake up in the mornings and how she likes to live by lamp light most hours of the day. Katie makes fun of Emily accordingly and all is right in the land of the Struggling Sisters. Enjoy!
Is your family weird/amazing/loud/embarrassing/picky? Or at least one of those things? Us too!
The Struggling Sisters talk about strange (and accidentally true crime) family traditions that Em found on the interwebs and we divulge the traditions we have started with our own families. We also did an extensive quiz to find out which Disney family we are. These are the facts: Katie’s family yells, Emily’s family can’t stand DiGiorno and hearing about serial killer families just plain makes us feel better about our own family situations.
Do you ever feel inadequate because you don’t know enough? Do you tell yourself you’re too behind to ever catch up? In this episode with Katie we discuss her recent decision to follow Jesus and the identity questions she still wrestles with. What we discovered is: the concept of identity is a hard one to wrangle and we all wonder if we’re on the right track from time to time.
