The Big Boo Cast
Authors / speakers Melanie Shankle and Sophie Hudson - also known as Big Mama and BooMama on their blogs - talk about all the important stuff: faith, family, friends, football, fashion, and food. Plus, of course, their hair.

All righty - you asked for it, and we aim to please, so here's part one of our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide. We had the best time rounding up ideas, and in this first installment, we focus on hostess gift options as well as gifts for teenage girls and guys.

This means that I use my teenage girl voice at least four too many times.

Anyway, we hope our suggestions are helpful (and fun!) (and also significantly reduce your shopping stress). As always, you can find links to everything in the show notes. Except for the rosemary tree from Lowe's and anything from Trader Joe's. Because Trader Joe's online shopping options = sad trombone.

Be on the lookout for installment #2 (gifts for men and women) early next week.

Enjoy, y'all!
