Culprit is today’s Merriam Webster word of the day.
Lizz wants to know where the Daily Mail was when she was covering the Oreos double stuffed scandal. This shrinkflation is all over today’s driveway dumps.
In base model luxuries, Kelly’s got questions. What are you doing without a heating pad in your bed? And what ‘self-car’ items do you need to stock your ride with? Kelly and Lizz’s favorites are floss picks, mints, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, cuticle cream, hairbrush, deodorant, and chapstick.
Christmas movies kick off the gals’ December bucket list. For the adults, Feast of the Seven Fishes is a Christmas coded movie that’s perfect for the holiday season. Lizz is looking forward to the Suntrup Automotive Christmas Party, an extended family open house, and San Diego in December. Kelly’s making homemade chex mix, taking the kids to see holiday lights, making a holiday cocktail, and sharing Tyler’s too-effective Santa toy hack.
Before you pull the trigger on any of these baby things that, let's be honest, kids use for a few months at the most, make sure you check Goodbye gear. It is the best place to buy second hand baby gear. It’s where Kelly’s found some of her favorite items like the Baby Brezza and an alphabet rug for her kiddo’s room. Shop and sell your open box and unused kid gear, toys, and more on Good Buy Gear.

A listener writes in for advice about adult gift exchanges, and Kelly and Lizz have the best recommendations: Stanleys, a Home Pura, a gift card to a favorite restaurant, a wireless charger bank, a wireless speaker, or something you genuinely love yourself. Another mom wants to know how she can keep up with her housework? Kelly’s nearly drowning, but her daily cleaning strategy and laundry basket system keep her head above water.
Today’s ditch the drive-through is a fancy spin on a simple favorite. Just place a block of cream cheese or soft cheese in a 9x13 pan, pour two pints of cherry tomatoes over the cheese, drizzle with olive oil, and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. While the cheese and tomatoes bake, cook your pasta. Add cooked pasta to your 9x13 and stir to combine.
