When you are playing with your garbage truck and the actual garbage truck comes by and the driver gives you a big humbs up...then know it is one of the best days OF YOUR LIFE. 🚛
You know we are stuck inside in this heat unless it involves a pool here in the desert 😭 @YoungWoodworkers to the rescue! #ad As busy parents like many of you, we are always on the lookout for ideas that take the prep time out of meaningful activities for littles. #YoungWoodworkers subscription kits are a great solution! We loved getting to try out kits with our own kids, and we’ve got a great deal for our podcast listeners! Head to YoungWoodworkers.com/nextdoor to save 50% off your first shipment.
Our new episode is all about CARS – memories of cars past (and donated to NPR), first cars, and the cars we drive now. Plus each of our parking superpowers and an update to the not-so-neighborly parking in Erica's neighborhood. Do you have a memorable first car or any quirky driving habits? Honk, honk!
Guys! It rained in our neighborhoods last weekend and when it rains in the desert there is not even time to put on pants before you go play it in. 🌧😄
Our new ep is all about our SUMMER WARDROBES! What are your staples? Where have you found great bathing suits? Also, let’s take a minute to talk about bikini line situations (ahem). Tell us how you are staying cool and looking good this summer! ☀️👙🕶
We are back from our beginning of summer travels to our distant (humid) homelands, and planning an episode on the great outdoors! Any tips for camping, hiking, or being generally outdoorsy as a family?
Hi friends! 👋🏼 Cohost Kelsey here. We love seeing new faces around here so we thought we should show ours! I’m married to Chris, one of the husbands next door 😉, and we have two little boys — one of which will start kinder in August! I have a science background but recently quit my full time job as a university science writer to have more time for my creative pursuits of podcasting and writing (hopefully books!) as well as more time for family so this summer is a new chapter for me. Currently my family is on a long trip to Texas where we’re visiting my hometown of Austin ❤️ and the coast where we are riding windy ferries ⛴. It’s been a great trip but the routines and predictability of home are always wonderful to return to as well. 🏡 Thanks so much for listening to the show and for your wonderful comments, reviews, and emails. We have the best listeners!💞
It's time for spring book club! John Boyne's The Heart's Invisible Furies made us laugh and cry - while reading and while recording a podcast. Join us as we discuss this rich and epic novel that we both loved. If you read along, what did you think?
Hi friends! @ladderica here. We have some new listeners, so let’s catch up shall we? I am from WI 🌳 (#gopackgo) but have been in AZ🌵for 9 years and love it! The universe initially plopped me right next door to @kelswharton 🏘 and the rest is podcast history. My husband and I became parents to two beautiful sisters, Vanessa and Julia 👧🏽👧🏽 over three years ago through foster care adoption and were finally able to make that official a year and a half ago! I am an elementary teacher by trade and wrote a book called Candid Classroom: What Parents Want to Know and Teachers Want to Tell them a while back! 📚Starting work on a book about our adoption story now while I raise these two lovelies, podcast, and work for myself selling (amaze-balls) makeup and skin care and magic lip color💋 Nice to see you here!
