Girlfriend Chat


Stop what you’re doing right now and head over to Shay’s blog to listen to our GIRLFRIEND CHAT.  

I’ve gotta be honest.  I talk to Shay approximately twelve times a day, but this time I had a sweat going, was on the verge of breaking out in hives, and was NERVOUS!  {You guys know I’m NOT a public speaker!  haha!}  

I felt great until the LAST question….you should listen for my answer.  hahaha!  {But I’ll go ahead and spill it.}  Shay asks for three words that describe me and to be honest I can’t even remember at this moment what my first two words were BUT THEN I say…”Down for a good time”.  WHAT?!  Where was-MOM, WIFE, or SINNER SAVED BY GRACE?!  No, in my panicked state I said, “down for a good time” is another way to describe me.  Oh my goodness!  Folks, that right there is why I did everything I could in college to NOT take public speaking.

You should go listen!  And then come back and let me know what you think.  🙂

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

    Loved it!
    1. You guys said breakfast tacos so many times that I HAD to go to Rudy's after school drop off! 25 min drive lol
    2. Have you listened to Melissa Rycroft Strickland's Dirty Hair Podcast? Your call reminded me so much of that.
    3. You guys should start a 30 min podcast called The Girlfriend Chat/Podcast asap. Just don't talk about your sponsors every five mins like some podcasters.
    4. Or record a part 2 to this call…only answer questions that readers submit. "Q&A with Erika & Shay" 🙂

    I don't think I've ever heard your voice!?! You're adorable! This was so fun to listen to. I agree with others, sometimes I didn't know who was talking, you and Shay actually sound a lot alike.

    Y'all are adorable! Should I ever find myself living in McKinney, I'm totally crashing your mom group. And I'm totally with you on the public speaking…I cried during my final speech in my Public Speaking class I college. I'm talking full on ugly crying. IT WAS NOT PRETTY!

    That was such fun to listen to! It felt like we were all there with you chatting. Some parts had me laughing out loud, but the end was the best! Especially after you warned it was coming. Lol
