Episode 34: Bring Out Your Debt!
In true This is Marriage fashion, today we openly talk about something normal people are too scared or embarrassed to talk about. Debt.

We have both become huge fans of people like Ed Mylett and Rachel Hollis and are working to implement some of the things they teach about deliberately planning your day and being proactive instead of reactive.

Episode 29: "You sit on a throne of lies!"
On this episode of the podcast, we discuss SANTA!!! We talk about whether you should let your kids believe in Santa or not. Also, when/if should you tell your kid that Santa is a big hoax?

We're probably the worst people to ask. Anyway, we have a ton of fun and Ash is a major space case tonight. It was weird. Enjoy!

Ash is sick so here's an old favorite of ours: POOP!
Hey guys, sorry to do this, but Ash is wicked sick (say that in a Boston accent for extra credit) and so we aren't recording a new episode tonight. So, instead of a new episode, we thought we would treat all our new listeners to an old favorite episode. The one where we talk about poop. I really don't know why everyone loved it so much, but here it is. Enjoy!!

We talk about our different philosophies on chore charts (for adults) and the expectations of what our house should look like. Let's face it, it is hard to keep a house clean with 2 dogs, 1 cat, and a toddler, but that doesn't mean we should be embarrassed about it. Ash and I talk about the fact that our house isn't what we want it to be and is a major source of unhappiness.
