Ep 5: Why is it so hard to make friends as an adult?
Christine: Schitt’s Creek (Pregnancy Test Episode)
Lindsay: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (in Truffle)
Christine: The weather we’ve been having (Hot, Cold, Rainy, etc)
Lindsay: The Nordstrom Sale posts starting early (as of June 17) and telling people to open the Nordstrom card (bad advice to suggest people get in debt to shop a sale early)
Christine and Lindsay both shop the sale and use the credit card, but feel talking about it a month early is overkill.
The Nordstrom sale begins on July 12th. Will you be shopping it?
