Sunday Sweet Edit

October 23, 2022

Hi, sweet friends! This Sunday Sweet Edit we head home from visiting family in northern Wisconsin today and, man… There is just something about being in the middle of nowhere where the air is crisp and clean and the stars shine so brightly at night. It’s a little slice of heaven.

Stay tuned tomorrow for our second Gift Guide! This time it’s all about the little ones…

Should a political candidate’s health come into play in term’s of his/her fitness to serve? Should it be public knowledge? Should presidential candidates be required to complete a cognitive test? Jay and I discuss (and disagree on) this issue. Plus, I share a Selena and Hailey update (DID YOU SEE THE PIC?) and we talk about a whole lot of 90’s nostalgia and a few Wait. What? moments…

The One With #KateGate Brand New Information

Where the Bleep is Kate Middleton? This burning question has brought Jay and Suzanne back to the mic for a special episode of Brand New Information! Suzanne catches Jay up to speed on the theories and developments surrounding the whereabouts of Kate Middleton, The Princess of Wales, while Jay shares his in depth knowledge of the royal family (exclusively gleaned from The Crown). If you want to dive deeper into #KateGate, Suzanne recommends listening to another sibling pop culture duo – Pop Apologists! Follow Jay on Instagram & Twitter, and Suzanne on Instagram!

On Monday, we had a solo episode! I answered your questions about cravings and anxiety, which led me to a discussion about counting days. Does it help you feel empowered in sobriety? If it doesn’t and instead feels punitive, this episode is for you.

Friday was another bonus episode with another “real mom,” Sarah. If you’re sober curious and aren’t exactly sure how alcohol fits into your life, I think you’ll find this conversation so helpful.

what I wore last week…

(The only problem with my new Prada shearling slides? I can’t NOT wear them every single day. They’re too crazy comfy.)

Suzanne wearing a faux fur jacket and Pistola trousers

I shared this faux fur jacket in my Five Favorite post last Friday because it’s a hands down favorite. I wear it for everyday #momlife because why the hell not. My utility pants are on sale and a great jeans alternative. They’re high-waisted and super comfy.

Suzanne wearing an Anthropology cardigan and leggings

We sold out this gorgeous cardigan earlier this fall, but it’s been restocked! Some sizes are on preorder, but I highly suggest ordering it if you were bummed that you missed out on it the first time. I get compliments every time I wear it. I’m wearing XS.

Suzanne wearing a Pro Roe crewneck, joggers, and a denim sherpa jacket

I’ll be wearing this Pro Roe sweatshirt everyday between now and the mid-terms…

don’t miss…
