Ep 5: Why is it so hard to make friends as an adult?

July 03, 2019

Weekly Love

Christine: Schitt’s Creek (Pregnancy Test Episode)

Ew, David Doormat

Lindsay: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (in Truffle)

Weekly Hate

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?

Discussing friendships as an adult

The episode opens with a background on Christine’s and Lindsay’s friendships as 30-something, childless women. We discuss:

  • How difficult it is to meet new people

  • And more!

We also answer listener questions/thoughts, including:
