good stuff!

OK, so I have another confession to make...

I love the Big Boo Podcast!

In case you don't know, it's a podcast that 2 of my favorite bloggers do. Big Mama and BooMama. They talk about clothes, shoes, Beth Moore, food, kids, hair...

You know, the things that really matter.

Now, I must preface the rest of this post with this...I have never met these women, nor have I ever talked to them on the phone. I received occasional emails from them, but that's where the acquaintance ends. I do think we would be great friends though, if ever given the chance. Now, where was I...Oh yes, the podcast...

The first time I listened, I was hooked. It's like listening in on a funny phone call between two good friends. I always laugh at their funny comments and "insights" on life. So far they've done 5 episodes, and I'm not afraid to admit that I get pretty excited when a new one comes out.

All that to say, that a couple of weeks ago, I sent BooMama a question for the podcast. Now, honestly, I figured that they get a lot of questions, and that the chance of mine being picked for the podcast was very slim. However, I decided to chance it, and so, I composed my question using all the wit I could muster. Much to my surprise, (ok, I'm not gonna lie, anytime I get an email from one of the mama's, I squeal!) BooMama emailed me that she liked my question, and that they'd be using it on their next podcast.

It's telling of the level of excitement in my life, that I was so thrilled I could barely breathe.

So, I breathlessly awaited the next podcast...the one where I was to be a guest star...and then it came!

And I wasn't on it.

Talk about total let down.

At that point I decided that maybe, just maybe, I might be too wrapped up in my opinion of myself "guest starring" on the podcast.

So, I came back to earth, and went on with my life.

A few days ago, I saw that episode 5 of the BigBoo cast was available, and I downloaded it to my ipod. But extenuating circumstances kept me from listening to it for a few more days.

Then my friend Dawn left a comment for me on a previous post, mentioning that she'd heard the Mama's talking about my question on the newest podcast. She even called me a Star! (I love you for that Dawn!)

So, of course, I grabbed my ipod and started to listen...

And there it was, MY QUESTION!

Well kinda, it was there, just broken up by much laughter...which just MADE MY DAY! I MADE THE MAMA'S LAUGH!

I gotta tell you, I'm still on my podcast high.

I MADE THE MAMA'S LAUGH A LOT!

Hmmm, do you think I need to get out more?

Have a listen, it's funny stuff. You can listen right on the blog! Here's the link!

Oh, and I "guest star" towards the beginning...like in the first 10 minutes, so be ready!

I need to listen. I haven't heard all of the first one and none of the remaining 4. But since YOU are on it, then I will have to check it out.

We are sad aren't we? The MAMA's will take notice of our little community.

Yea for Itches and Scratches! Shelley is a star. I do find it humerous that you have never even laid eyes on these women and you think they are "fit". I suppose they write and sound like they are skinny. I just have to believe that they are really two big southern women who love fried chicken and eat it every day. Then they just pretend to be skinny on their blogs and podcasts while dreaming of shopping at Target and Old Navy or Anthropologie.

Anyone whos blogs have the words MAMA in them have to be big, right?

Dawn, you would think...However, I've seen pics of the Big Mama, and she's actually quite petite...Oh the irony of it all!

I found your blog through Alana - I will have to go listen to my first podcast today! I've always wondered what they were.

By the way, I was laughing reading your blog...I'll be coming back for sure! :)
