Holiday Self-Care & Vegas Christmas Lights
2019 Intentions & A Snow Conundrum

2018 Wrap Up & Australian Us


Warning! At the beginning of the episode during our snack we discuss Santa and you might not want little ears to listen. But after that the coast is clear.

With the end of the year approaching we reflect on 2018 and share our personal highlights plus the best books, movies, products, meals, and podcasts we enjoyed. We also year from past Erica and Kelsey to see if the years we predicted came true. We snack on the ultimate holiday cookie: dark chocolate covered peppermint Joe-Joe's and the not so ultimate pfeffernusse.
