Today, we piggie backed on an episode we did a few weeks ago call Trad Wives. Listen to that HERE to hear our take on the trad wives trend. On today's episode, we focused on the trad dad and what a traditional father in the modern era looks like. To say we are blessed in this department is a vast understatement. The fathers of our children embody what it means to be a traditional dad.If you like our content, please consider reviewing our podcast and sharing it with your friends. We love to br...
Today, we discussed our thoughts on a CBS report found HERE. This report states it costs over 300,000 to raise a child to the age of 18. We discussed our numbers on one of our own kids..well Lauren's kid. And just to be clear, this figure doesn't not include the cost of the child's college education. To rephrase it, this is just for the cold hard day to day costs from birth to adulthood. Listen to this episode to hear if we think these numbers are right.Before you go listen to this episode, c...

Aging Gracefully

Aging Gracefully

2024-06-2641:21

Today, We took on a topic we hope we're doing. Only those that know us in real life could really say if we are. Aging Gracefully is something I (Ellyn) decided to do in my 30s. I decided not to try to fight the clock and color my hair or fill my wrinkles. Those were well earned signs that I had made it in life. Some are denied the privilege of age. I wasn't going to fight the signs of it.We discussed a few trends in anti-aging and our thoughts about them. We also discussed the disturbing tren...

Today was a huge treat. We got a chance to do an interview with a fellow gardener and podcaster, Jill Mcsheehy. She hosts The Beginner's Garden and our topic was gardening in small spaces and getting the most out of your garden. Jill had so much experience and knowledge to share. She also hails from an area we have little experience with but we have several listeners who live in similar areas so we hope to have brought some insight for them. Thanks so much Jill for joining us today!Jill menti...
Today, we took on a subject a little more serious for us. But this is something we have discussed before and something that is near and dear to our hearts. If you haven't gone and listened to the speech, I highly recommend you do, in its entirety. Most of what has been said about it has focused on 2 sections. But, There was so much more to it than that. The rest of what he said gave context to the controversial sections.As our listeners know, we live pretty similar lives to the one he describ...

Today we dove into a personal topic for us. We don't center our podcast around God because we want to be inclusive to all demographics. Motherhood, gardening, cooking and all the rest are things we can discuss across all beliefs. That said, today's episode is a little different. We wanted to talk a bit about our beliefs as they are what makes us part of who we are. Centering our and our families lives around God and our relationship with Him is a huge part of who we are. We discussed it today...
Budgeting for vacation

Budgeting for vacation

2024-05-0626:38

Today, we continued our budgeting series. Vacations can be so expensive but they don't have to be. A little bit of for thought can save you heaps of money while still having a great time with your family. We wanted to do this episode early in the season because the most important part of budgeting for vacation is starting with a plan early. If you wait until the last minute it is much harder to stay within your budget.Have you heard the other episodes in this series? If you're looking for way...
Have you ever seen those surveys online? Would you rather live in the on the beach or in the mountains? I think we all have. Well, today we took on a few of those questions and discussed our answers.It is always fun to think about, if I could have things be different, what would I choose? For most things I think we would choose the lives we have over and over. But how fun would it be to live in a place totally different from where we are.What do you think of our answers today? What would you ...
Today, we took a little more serious topic on the podcast. We discussed man bashing and why we think it is wrong. I'm sure you've noticed, man bashing has been around for many years. Men are portrayed a stupid and inept, unable to do even the most menial tasks without the intervention of the extremely smart women in their lives. Obviously, dear listener, you can see we are not fans of this trend of running down half the the population and the father of our children.Clearly, it's bad for our d...
Today we talk about some skin saving tips that will help you to have healthier skin. Many of these tips are things you may already do, but many are also ones that are not obvious. It is different for everyone that listens.I used to work in the skin care industry, and even though I really liked many products, what I think I learned was that it's the routine you are using at least as much as the actual products. We have a lot of fun with this topic, and hope you can find the time to listen to t...
