Episode 40: All Things Reading!

The Chatty Sisters are *finally* diving in to Kelly's favorite topic: reading! The Sisters chat about their first memories of reading, where/when/how/why they read, their favorite genres, and some of Caroline's random questions regarding reading. Here's another one: why is "read" spelled the same in the past tense and present tense, but not pronounced the same? No wonder English is such a hard language to learn! Anyways, if you love to read, you'll love this episode and probably want to curl up with a good book once you're done!

Episode 38: Hello 2018! (And Goals)

The Chatty Sisters are BACK with their first episode of 2017! This week, Kelly and Caroline are reviewing 2017 and talking 2018 "SMART" goals (lol. jk.). Synopsis: Kelly wants to keep her children alive another year and Caroline wants to maybe attempt to read a book and actually remember what it's called! Max makes an appearance (or two...) and will give you all a few laughs. He's tired of listening to the Chatty Sisters talk, but hopefully you guys are not!!

Episode 36: Birthdays and Bucket Lists

In honor of Caroline's 29th birthday, the Chatty Sisters are talking about birthday parties they loved as kids, feelings around turning 30, and bucket lists. Kelly & Caroline get sucked down another hole of all the places they want to travel to... everywhere from Hawaii & Alaska to Italy & Denmark. Caroline only needs to freeze time before she has kids to make this happen and.. well.. Kelly needs to go back in time?? As always, you'll hear a bit about the Sister's lives and some random tangents. Thank you for listening!

Episode 35: Personalities in Friends

What kind of people are you drawn to? Are you someone who looks for someone to lift them up or balance them out? Do you believe in the age old saying, "opposites attract"? This week, the Chatty Sister's tackle personalities once again, this time with a focus on friendships. Caroline shares all about her love for extroverts and... Leos (!?), while Kelly admits she lied on her college roommate application by saying she was "neat". Also, tune in to commiserate with the Sisters about Cyber Monday sales, life changes, and dying phones.

Episode 33: Family Traditions

In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, the Chatty Sisters reminisce about family traditions they remember from childhood and how these traditions have changed and morphed into new ones over the years. For some strange reason, they both recall the stairs at their great-grandmother's house in great detail, even though Kelly and Caroline were probably about 8 and 4 years old respectively. As usual, they laugh a lot... mostly at Caroline's confusion at the concept of a food drive and her undying love for TSwift, and how Kelly is so. loud. though. #extrovertproblems

Episode 32: Saving and Printing Photos

For once, the Chatty Sisters have some true expert advice (thanks Caroline!) about managing digital photos. They chat about Caroline's #1 rule learned in photography school, why they think it's important to print photos and what companies they support. It wouldn't be a complete episode without Kelly's Stay at Home mom woes and Caroline questioning the next step in her career path.
