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.

Well, we have been to Amarillo, and we both absolutely loved our trip. So we kick off this episode talking about All The Fun we had with Jamie and Erin and Knox and the Amarillo Angels. Plus, you know, Torchy's Tacos.

We also talk about Homecoming in the here and now and Homecoming in ye olden (Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock) days, along with a couple of new products Melanie has tried and our (unexpected!) shared reality TV boundary. Plus, you know, our favorite person to follow on Twitter.

As always, thanks so much for listening. Hope you enjoy!

On this episode we chronicle Melanie's recent football heartache, we talk about our upcoming trip to Amarillo, and we break down some thoughts about the fact that the leopard print trend has arrived with authority and apparently intends to stay.

We also talk about the difficulty of persuading our eyes to wake up in the mornings, along with some potions and salves that are bringing Melanie some real hope. And in what might be one of my favorite topics ever, we dig into an offhand comment where Melanie reveals that the Shankles own an extra set of tires. COLOR ME FASCINATED.

Enjoy, y'all!
