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.

Our schedules haven't been super cooperative this week (painters! dogs! World Cup soccer!), so we were delighted to finally get to play a little podcast catch-up. We talk about the joys of car insurance costs for teenagers, the inspirational qualities of a Kardashian's refrigerator, our "Sunrise, Sunset" feelings about the pool, and our annoying ability to ignore problems we'd rather not address and/or solve.

We also discuss a clothing consignment option that has been a fantastic new discovery, and I discuss that in what is certainly far too much detail. As I tend to do.

Hope y'all enjoy!

So. Third time's the charm? Maybe?

We initially tried to record this episode a week ago, but my router got disconnected when we had painters at my house and, alas, there was no internet.

Then we recorded about four days ago, but something happened to the audio on Melanie's end, and alas, there was nothing to edit.

So today, once again, we attempted to record episode 143. We think we did it this time, so let this episode be a testimony to the Lord's strength in our weakness. :-) We talk about the College World Series (#HailState), a fun lunch I had at my house last week, and five things we're really enjoying this summer. Well, actually for me it was six things I'm enjoying this summer. I had a hard time narrowing down my list.

Hope y'all enjoy!

Well, if college baseball isn't your favorite topic, don't worry - because there's a point in this episode where we talk for over five minutes about what is causing the rustling noise in or around Melanie's microphone. It's every bit as riveting as you might imagine.

We also talk about Real Housewives, a new Netflix movie we enjoyed, our kids' summertime activities, and an ill-fated trial run with Snapchat.

Enjoy, y'all!
