  1. Ladies, I was totally cracking up while listening to this episode because I just subscribed to Prep Dish, and at that moment I was actually prepping my meals for the week! Ha! Christy, you should try it. Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy and the What Should I Read Next podcast has a 50% code for the premium Prep Dish subscription for her listeners. (It’s on one of the last couple of episodes.) Also, I have major Bullet Journal love, and I think it would change Haley’s life. 🙂 Ya’ll’s description of it was funny, but I was talking back to my phone while listening: “Try it! Try it! It’s so much more than ‘writing in a journal.'” This podcast was a lot of fun, and I love how self-depricating you two are about organization!

  2. It wouldn’t matter if someone handed me a menu and a shopping list, it all depends on what I FEEL like eating. I wish my friend’s OCD was contagious – you can seriously see the floor in her front coat closet!!! The thing is, she has such a laid back personality. I feel like a hamster on a wheel and yet I never accomplish a fraction of her tidiness. Lenten penance anyone?

  3. Oh my goodness, Christy!!! I just found you guys — so excited by the theme of this podcast– but this is the first episode I listened to and it was freaky how alike you and are… not only did it sound like I was listening to my own voice, inflections, way of interrupting (HA!), but I have literally said or thought everything you said about organizing, meal planning, bullet journaling, etc…. I made my husband listen to just a few minutes and his was kinda creeped out. LOLOL. Anyhow, I really want to know the rest of your “letters” since you didn’t say your type but that you’re a J. I’ve tested a few times as ENTP, but could be totally wrong. If you haven’t looked at the cognitive functions, but have just tested MBTI, I’m curious… cause you sound pretty strong on Extraverted Intuition to me. Otherwise, I’m going to seriously question my own typing!! Oh, also, I have five kids, homeschool, and am from central California (you sound suspiciously local -not Canadian!).

    Anyhow, I enjoyed your podcast and am looking forward to listening to more (for the content, not to hear myself talk! 😉 ).
