  1. I figured out our teacher gifts! A little candy, a gift card for coffee and a pair of socks! It was tough b/c the teachers and helpers vary from college age (not owning a home so no kitchen towels) to 50’s. So I went with socks, everyone wears them and if they don’t like them re-gift. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I cannot believe I have never seen that barrel makeup container before! Thanks for featuring products that are practical but also a little different.

  3. This is one of my favorite episodes ever! You two made me laugh at a time when I really needed to laugh! I also wanted to say that I also have the “I like big books and I cannot lie” tote bag. It was given to me as a Christmas gift last year, along with a matching car magnet. 🙂

  4. Perfect! I (Kelsey) got good feedback on the dish towel + Mrs. Meyers dish soap 🙂

  5. Ha – perfect! And you are so welcome, thank you for these kind words!

  6. This podcast made me laugh out loud and cemented my love for you two! It was hilarious!

  7. What a compliment, thank you so much, Lee Anne!

  8. Great recipe. I’ll be trying this ASAP. Thanks Kelsey for sharing.
