In this episode, Heather explores the topic of how nagging (and what it really means) affects our parenting style and our kids. Through the discussion, Heather lands on the concept of creating a family motto and value statement, so her future nagging can be framed in the context of advancing the mission of the family. Go brush your teeth. And put on your shoes!

Have you seen the show “Love is Blind?” on Netflix? If you haven’t, you’re missing out on a
REAL conversation starter. It’s smutty and thought provoking and totally crazy and – did we say
Talking about this program leads us into a conversation about what a marriage is, or what
Chryssy thinks it’s supposed to be, and the many ways people get it wrong.
We talk about sex outside the marriage, whether “allowed” or as cheating, and how it affects
each of the players in that scenario. Adventures in open marriage make a showing. My
goodness, how the French live! Ooh la la.
Take a moment today to consider what marriage means to you. Is it an emotional bond? A physical connection? A goods and services contract? Let's get into it.
In this episode, we address the stigma of shame about using prescription drugs to cope with anxiety and depression, as well as the fears surrounding medication for ADHD and anxiety in children. Drawing from our own experiences, we bring a frank and open discussion to a topic that many of us try to pretend doesn't exist. It does. Oh, and we accidentally took our kids' medications once.
Today on the show, physical and general powerhouse Jennifer Powell joins us.
We talk about her many journeys to reaching where she is today, including weight loss, powerlifting, entrepreneurship, motherhood, and becoming the CEO of Girls on the Run of the Big Bend.
Physical health and mental health are linked in a big way, and we get into the mental health changes that occur alongside changing our bodies. We have a great conversation of what it is to be a woman who lifts other women up, and how to model IMPERFECTION for our children.
The ladies discuss vulnerability and you’ll be shocked to know that not one of them quoted Brene Brown!
Heather learns the hard way this week that Chryssy doesn't know how knock-knock jokes work. But, it's okay, because this show is all about laughter. After seeing how many people were having a crummy week, Heather decided we all needed to just take a chill pill and laugh. So, here you go!
Oh, and here are the links she promised:
Tomorrow is Galentine’s Day and Friday is Valentine’s Day! Chryssy’s Cursory Google Search
yields some very not-well researched information about these holidays.
We have an apology on the show today and then a rant that we won’t apologize for. Show your
kids you love them this Valentine’s Day by getting them vaccinated against preventable
This is our first show with our new drop-in segment starters and Chryssy and Heather pretty
much struggle through learning to do something new, but guys, it’s real and it’s authentic!
Heather wants to know what Chryssy thought about the super bowl half time show, and asks a list of stream-of-conscio questions that occurred to her as she watched it on the morning after the super bowl. That leads to a conversation about all of the things, plus how prostitution helped settle the old west.
Today Chryssy hosts and the show has its first ever guest!
The lovely and talented Cameron Ulrich graces the microphone to tell us about beekeeping and the journey that led her to it and through it.
We learn about the hive and the cuties who live in it. The story of the bees and their interconnection with Cameron’s personal journey are a don’t miss. Chryssy wants to write the screenplay. Everybody has a story, and Cameron’s is pretty intriguing.
After a bee-autiful lesson, we still make time for the grab bag. Today we talk about Mommy Wine Culture and how to broaden our connections. We also take a spin on a quick ride about the importance of connectors, and how to break down those territorial walls and become one.
Bee prepared for some fun!
In 1991, 42% of first-through-third-grade girls reported wanting to be thinner. That same year, a study found that 51% of of nine- and 10-year-old girls felt better about themselves while dieting.
Heather wants to know what Chryssy thinks about how we talk to our kids about body image, weight, and dieting. But not before some of Heather's Headlines and a little update on the deer-magnet Prius.
