Episode 18: Keepin it Super Casual

Grab some tea or coffee - we're keepin things chill this week.

Based off of an idea from one of our wonderful listeners, we’re launching a new segment called “Casual Wednesday” where we kick back and chat about things that we like, love and that we’ve tried. We also update on where we’re at with some of the topics we’ve discussed previously in the podcast. We hope you’ll share some thoughts on what we talk about here and how you’re doing. What are you reading? Have you tried anything new lately? We love hearing from you!

That’s what she said:

“I feel so dirty saying the word ‘hose’…” -Brett, referring to pantyhose
“Make like the Obamas and OUT” - Sarah

Episode 17: We're past patiently waiting


Patience is a virtue....or so they say. If you're anything like us, it doesn't come naturally.

Like when you find yourself mindlessly tapping your foot in the long checkout line at the grocery store or you want to rush your people out of the house because they're taking too long to get ready. Impatience creeps up on us unexpectedly, so recognizing that patience is a practice is important. This week we get right to it as we look at all things patience.

In this episode:

  • Just a little reminder to share with your friends and/or review us on iTunes.
  • The word “plug” sets Brett and Sarah into a gigglefest and a discussion about some pregnancy-related things…
  • We start with a pros and cons list about patience, talk about our American culture and how millennials deal with patience (hint: we’re not great at it), if lack of patience affects our mood or has caused us to make mistakes in our romantic or professional lives and some quotes from people wiser than us.
  • We also chat about if good things really come to those who wait and offer some practical tips for practicing patience.
  • Brett speaks a little Spanish for us.
  • The pants are mentioned once again.
  • These articles:

That’s what she said:

  • “What a nugget.” - Sarah
  • “I gotta work the bump while I got it.” -Brett
  • “The people whom I respect the most probably have the most amount of patience for themselves and for others.” -Brett
  • “It [patience] allows you to absorb what’s in front of you by not rushing through life.” -Sarah
  • “You can Google anything, does that actually mean that you know things?” -Brett
  • “I think that this instant world that we find ourselves sort of attached to on a daily basis has totally taken away our ability to be patient with the things that have been a part of our world for a very long time.” -Sarah
  • “Maybe I’ve never actually been patient, I’ve only ever acted patient.” -Brett
  • “I’ve never regretted being patient, I’ve only ever regretted being impatient.” -Brett
  • “In terms of our Christian faith, the ultimate reward will be when Jesus comes, and so we have to have patience for that.” -Sarah
  • “HEY YO, WHAT’S UP IT’S B FROM THE PEARLY Gssss” -Brett

Episode 16: We're Baaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaack


We're back. Back again.


This is probably about the time that you'd be tempted to give up on your New Year goals. This week's episode covers everything from different ways to reflect on the past to keeping the motivation to become your very best self.

But before we dive into the episode, here's a friendly reminder to rate and review us on iTunes. It's a simple way to brighten the start of our new year, and we'd love if you'd invite a friend to listen in and join the PSP love!

In this episode you'll hear:

  • A brand-new PSP catch-phrase.
  • Brett reveals the gender of her baby!
  • The 2017 motto inspired by Star Wars.
  • Memorable moments of our luscious holiday hiatus.
  • Highs and lows of 2016 (was it really as bad as everyone said?).
  • And the most creative ways bloggers we admire reflect and prepare for the year ahead.


That's What She Said:

  • "Don't care if I'm losing my hair. I don't have to wash it? Bring it." -Sarah 
  • "Baby spit up in my face. But I still love him." -Brett
  • "It's easy to look at a year and define it by the big events. But a vast majority of them probably didn't impact all of us on a personal level." -Sarah
  • "We're not always going to have the best year ever and we're not always going to have the worst year ever. It's always going to be a mixing combination of heartbreak. It's sort of what defines our humanity." -Sarah
  • "God is working in the lows as much as He's working in the highs." -Sarah
  • "I didn't see the anger and the fire to fight back and to push forward. I just saw the fear of 'what's going to happen to me now?'" -Brett
  • "I hope to rise to become the woman that God has called me to be." -Sarah
