Awwwww! Friends, today on The Bestie Breakdown podcast, Erika and I are BREAKING DOWN SEASON 2 as it’s our last episode of the season.
You know how much we love our podcast community and recording episodes for our listeners, but we also love our sanity…so, we are taking a break between now and September to enjoy the summer season with our kiddos and make sure we get all of our travel customers off on their vacations without any distractions from outside obligations. I don’t know about you, but the older I get, the more I want to enjoy the life I’ve carved out for myself instead of running from one thing to the next, so if taking a break from podcasting allows me to sit on my patio, eat a popsicle, jump in the pool and be present with my kids, then that’s what I should do. Don’t worry though, we will be back in September with an even bigger and better SEASON 3! We have some new ideas involving content, giveaways and technology to hopefully bring even more fun (and more guests!) on our show!
So many sincere thanks to all of you who have been following along this season. When we kicked off Season 2 in June, we only had ten episodes slated to record…but your love, support and feedback pushed us to record a whopping 40 episodes! UNBELIEVABLE! We are forever thankful for this community and your support!
Today, we BREAK DOWN SEASON 2 by laughing and chatting about all the funny things that were said, happened, and were a result of this season. It’s the perfect wrap up for our podcast. I hope you all listen!

I don’t think we got the Splurge vs Steal episode?!?! Did I miss it? GREAT season 2, very easy listening!! XX
I will miss listening to y’all each week, but I totally get it. Enjoy your time off and your summer with the families!

September seems like an eternity away ? I loved listening to the podcast, it was a fun distraction from chores and made me feel like I was hanging with my friends. I’m a newly wed so it was nice getting a future glimpse of mom life too! Enjoy the summer ☀️
Beth Valenta says
Loved listening to you girls! Tirivia: What phrase do you think you both say over and over???LOL
For sure we love you.

awwwwwww! We love YOU!
Laci Murray says
Enjoy the Summer! See you in September!
I’ve loved listening every week! Thank you for taking the time to share your lives with us! Enjoy your much deserved break! Looking forward to Season 3!
I’ve really loved listening this season! Can’t wait until you guys start up again. Enjoy your break!
Hi! I am so intrigued by y’all saying your kids won’t get social media until they finish up high school on today’s episode. (And applaud that?). My kids are still kind of little. Do you know when you will allow them to have a phone? #askingforafriend
Mix and Match Mama says
We think we they start driving. We don’t have a set rule…we’re taking it day by day.
I’ve enjoyed the podcast so much. Enjoy your break and I’ll be ready for season 3 when you get back.
Yay! So excited to listen during my walk ☺️. You guys enjoy the break, well deserved!!
Splurge V Steal?! I don’t think we’ve heard that one but sounds like something I want to hear!
Mix and Match Mama says
I just realized what happened…I wrote this blog post before we realized we didn’t have a complete episode for splurge vs steal and forgot to correct it. we’re going to re-record that episode for season 3. we had tech issues once John tried to edit it and it was too much that we couldn’t even use the episode. sigh. It’s like the fourth or fifth time we’ve recorded a complete episode that we couldn’t use.
Ugh my biggest pet peeve is when technology doesn’t work, I’m sorry it was such a bummer! Can’t wait for season 3!
Caitlin LeMaster says
Love the podcast!! Great job you two! I am a big podcast gal! I’ve been a habitual radio show/ podcast listener for 10 years now which is odd for my age because I’m only 25! Since I am such a big listener across the board I thought you might want to hear a few suggestions for next season. These are solely from my own preferences so please don’t view them as critiques!
1. Would you be able to stick to one intro song? I love getting into a grove with a show and getting that Pavlovian happy feel when you hear it. It almost gets the listener in the right excited mindset.
2. I know this suggestion is based on tech capabilities – If you do more guest speakers, I would suggest continuing to have mics with you and Erika as well to lead the conversation. Depending on who you bring on it could be a little odd without at least one of you.
3. Part 2 of the guest speaker suggestion – If you do more speakers, I would suggest a longer episode. I know others have complained about an hour being too long but I don’t expect those people to be avid podcast listeners and not your target audience anyhow.
Absolutely love the progress you have made on the tech side! It’s been great!
I love your podcast! I only see 40 episodes on Spotify, where is the 41th one? I don’t see Splurge vs Steal. I was just wondering what happened to it.
Mix and Match Mama says
Technical issues took that one down. We tried hard to salvage it…but nope…a topic for Season Three!
Kelly Bonner says
I love your podcast so much! Thanks for all the time & energy you pour into it!
I will miss your chats but completely understand the break! I like your ideas for next season… Especially having some guests on. That will be a lot of fun 🙂
I liked hearing about your workouts from Andrew. But, I have to say, the Peleton strength workouts are so great! Check out hardcore on the floor on Facebook. The woman who started the group is a personal trainer and lputs together a monthly calendar of Peloton strength workouts. It is so good. And easy to follow. I cannot recommend it enough.
I LOVE listening to you guys while I’m walking and will miss you during the summer months for sure! But I’m glad you’re getting a much needed, (I’m sure), break. I would love to hear more about your workouts from Andrew…that could even be a blog post…if he’s interested in sharing specific workouts!
I would love for you guys to do a book club every month again!!
