We answer all of the tough birthday questions this month, like: What do you do when you forget a birthday? What’s the deal with gift bags? Do you do the party drop-off move with your kids?

Rebecky has had a celebration breakthrough this year! She shared with us why it’s so important to celebrate yourself and how to not be weird about it. Em shares her go-to gift for girlfriends.

Also, Rebecky got some fly electronic accessories and we find out why Em is giving away her designer dog.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • why Emily’s dog is up for grabs

  • a simple, quick way to let your friend’s know you’re thinking of them

  • to give or not to give gift bags at kid’s parties

  • inexpensive gift ideas

  • our favorite ways to celebrate birthdays

  • enjoying birthdays as adults

  • making birthdays near holidays special without a lot of prep

  • hacks on getting thoughtful gifts for loved ones (and Emily)

  • how our society has eliminated waiting, to our own detriment

Do you need a laugh break? Have you always wanted to know the truth about St. Patrick’s Day?

This week we give you a quick rundown of St. Patrick’s day history (as we understand it) and we explore some Irish phrases and accents that we enjoy. The original plan was to focus on community, so Emily shared her normal community “fake news”. A quick round of Are You into That? helped us determine we aren’t scrunchie girls anymore, even if it’s cool.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • in honor of St. Patrick’s day, Emily dares Katie to the Irish slang challenge

  • Irish phrases (read in a very poor Irish accent)

  • the history of St. Patrick

  • Would You Rather - St. Patrick’s edition

  • finding friends with similar niche interests

  • what’s giving us life and what’s killing us softly
