We chat the important things: ditching the obsessive counting calories during the holidays, how to say no to holiday food you don’t enjoy but feel obligated to eat (like Aunt Judy’s “famous” casserole, yikes), and how to manage stress of family and friends and holiday spending as well.

This episode rated clean- this is your holiday gift, Erinn’s mom and Rachel’s mom!

Today’s episode is all about celebration, particularly celebrating a holiday we made up, BIRTHAWEEN! We enjoy green tea mini ice cream sandwiches (chocolate dipped and sea salt sprinkled- gah!) and bask in the glory of ice cream and ourselves.

We chat the important things: what Birthaween even is, why we deserve to be celebrated, why we love parties and celebrations so much, what it means to us to have hit our 16th episode, why we believe people should celebrate themselves often and randomly, and we play party games and exchange traditional Birthaween gifts!

This episode rated explicit- we said a couple bad words, oops!

Today’s episode is all about our faaaaavorite thiiiiings (as always, said in Oprah’s voice) in FOOD! We have our first BLIND TASTE TEST and feed each other random things and try to guess what is in our mouths. Erinn was great at it, Rachel not so much.

And Rachel says “long-ass”. As usual, sorry to our moms.

May 2, 2016
