Whew, last week was a really busy week and I’m bummed that I haven’t had a chance to recap the Raleigh meet-up weekend or show you pictures of our Halloween decorations yet. I’ll get there this week; I should be able to hopefully manage my time better. In the meantime, here’s the latest episode of The Broadcast, in which Shandy and I recap the 2021 Raleigh Meet-up and the three of us talk about Ted Lasso. Please note the time info about the Ted Lasso talk in case you don’t want to be spoiled.
Amanda got to live a five-year dream while Shandy and Colleen recap the Raleigh 2021 Podcast Meetup. They also talk about the Ted Lasso Season 2 finale.
**Spoiler: The Ted Lasso talk begins immediately after the ad break and lasts for approximately 19 minutes.**
I made the Ted Lasso biscuits and they didn’t totally suck!
There are a few different recipes out there but I followed this one. All of the recipes call for a lot of butter, which makes sense because it’s really tough to mess up the deliciousness of a recipe that has so much butter, haha. I’ve been practicing over the last month (in preparation for the Season 2 finale episode) and tweaking based on comments and trial and error. After four batches, I think I’ve gotten it down. They’ve been pretty delicious the last two batches. I’m hoping to serve them to everyone during the finale viewing tonight and I’m so nervous! I am not known for being a good baker or chef in general, haha. Wish me luck!
2021 Raleigh Meetup Weekend had its warm-up tonight. J.P. and Kayla are here! We had dinner with them and Elena. Hooray, it was so great to see them again. We are ready to see all of our podcasting friends after a long 2.5 years. Let’s gooooooooooo!
Thanks to supply chain issues, Jay has been ordering Christmas presents for the boys for a few months. Smart, right? Let’s be proactive! But there was one small issue we overlooked…
Note to self: Alexa has a big mouth! I’m sure there’s a setting we can turn off, but this has actually been displaying on the home screen for several weeks, lol. Just a head’s up for anyone else who may be ordering gifts from Amazon in advance – find whatever setting to turn it off! 😛
P.S. Apparently my kids don’t pay much attention to Alexa because they haven’t said anything yet lol.
Happy Friday! There’s a new episode of The Broadcast out today. We chit chat a bit and decide that we’re going to record a special (fun) Halloween movies episode on October 19 (for release on October 22) and need some suggestions! Let me know below if you have any. No horror movies, though. We want fun ones like “Hocus Pocus” or “Nightmare Before Christmas.” I’m definitely going to be watching the new Muppets Haunted Mansion movie for it, haha.
It’s Jason’s O! Colleen has more Alex stories. Are we biography people? We’re going to dedicate an episode to Halloween movies a la our holiday movie episode and need your suggestions by October 15!
Head’s up: This is one of two Ted Lasso-related posts I’ll be posting…
About a month ago, Jay sent me a text with a link to a free Loot Crate box full of Ted Lasso-related items. Since we’re big fans, we jumped on it real quick, and about two weeks ago, they arrived! It’s so much fun. It came with a kit (tape to cover Dubai Air not included), a visor, the “Believe” sign, and an AFC Richmond scarf. It’s so much fun!
Anyways, I just wanted to share and thank Loot Crate and whatever Ted Lasso production team put this together. I love it! I put the “Believe” sign over the door to my office. It may be dorky, but I feel like that sign is a perfect representation of those of us who aren’t quite ready to give up the fight in a post-2016, post-2020, and all-around “everything” world. Sure, we may be relegated and not able to pull it together, but with the best of intentions, there’s always hope. I’m a Yankees fan, but even I can get behind, “Ya gotta believe.”
I didn’t get a chance to watch this until after we recorded Survivor JJC last night, but I love it so much! Maaaaybe I’m a little biased because Jay and Jack are heavily featured in it, but I’m proud. 🙂 And it’s making me miss San Diego Comic-Con more than usual, haha.
I can’t believe it’s been 17 years since LOST premiered. Craziness.
