Totally Laime, Totally Married and Totally Mommy are the podcast brainchildren of comedy person Elizabeth Laime. Totally Laime is about asking the most important people in comedy the least important questions, Totally Married chronicles Elizabeth and her husband Andy's adventures in marriage (plus unqualified advice to listener questions!) and Totally Mommy is an honest discussion about Motherhood between newly-mommied Elizabeth and her talented parent friends. Enjoy!
Friends. I know I’ve shared more than what’s probably morally or ethically acceptable to discuss regarding my fantasies on the podcasts. (Bela Karolyi, anyone?) But it wouldn’t feel right not sharing this pregnancy/virgo eye candy I’m about to show you.
BEHOLD: My bathroom “junk” drawer.
I mean. Can you even? Isn’t she purty? But like, in a take-charge, competent, and yet calming kind of way? This, my friends, is what gives me little joygasms every time I open her up. I cannot believe I didn’t do this sooner – and it took all of fifteen minutes. The drawer was so small that organizing had previously seemed futile. That was until I discovered a little drawer trick – I recycled little gift boxes to create compartments… Do you see how there are compartments? My hair bands and nail polish and metal utensils all have their own little homes?! They are so happy there in those cozy homes! They love it!
I couldn’t even bring myself to take a “before” picture but rest assured that for the last FIVE YEARS, it looked something very similar to this:
Fantastic Mommy cohost for today is comedy actress Stephanie Escajeda! She and Elizabeth discuss The Good: (Joining in the parent club, Elizabeth having forgotten how hard it was to get pregnant) The Bad: (Being sick when your kid is sick means you don’t get to be sick!) and The Funny: (Stephanie’s daughter “acting”, Elizabeth’s pregnancy flirting with a motorcycle dude). Then they answer listener questions about placenta encapsulation, how to avoid nosy people when you are struggling with fertility, and whether or not to drink during the two week wait between ovulation and plus sign. Enjoy!
E and A discuss the recent bad news regarding their car as well as their productive day of getting ready for baby – Birth bag! Car seat! Annnnd… Padsickles? Then they answer listener questions about feeling hurt over not being a bridesmaid, navigating a difficult relationship that is heading towards co-dependency, finding new friends/relationships wherein you can discuss your emotions freely, how to convince your husband that couples therapy isn’t only for the end, and lastly, how/when to tell potential partners that you have an STD when you are back in the dating game. Enjoy!
Happy Valentine’s Day Laimewads! Today’s awesome guest – writer and performer, MATT McCONKEY (twitter: @MattMcConkey) started us off with a bang (aka, he brought muffins) before sharing his fantastic story about tracking down his birth parents, explaining how he feels about the online/app dating game, and what turned him into a Beyonce fan after having held out for many years. Enjoy!
