What’s New

  • Those would be the back staircase in our beach house we talked about in the present episode. You can observe those sliver-thin triangular steps round the curve which are particularly tricky. Although it had been one of those past two steps there in the base which I slipped (that are really the simplest aspect of the entire staircase!)

And below are a few amazing Hanukkah decorations I found on Google too:

Please notice the vacations represented in the pictures that I discovered above are merely a couple of these traditions from all over the globe that we discussed to the podcast — so listen in to listen to others.

We’re Digging

  • Here have been the Allbirds shoes I obtained as a joint gift in my sisters. Mine would be the ones displayed on the right (the Runners in “Natural Grey”) however they have tons of different colours and styles. They gave me a gift card so that I could select the colour, and I am so glad that they did because they are crazy comfy!

  • Also here is the trailer for Knives Out. All of the testimonials we have since learned are totally true — it is super entertaining, smart, and humorous (that may be bizarre to say about a murder mystery, but it is accurate ). One of our favorite trips to the films this season!
