Ep 25: Enjoy the Journey, Avoid the Cult
On episode 25, we talk about our thoughts so far on the new docu-series, “The Vow,” regarding the NXIVM cult, other multi-level marketing communities, the cult-mentality as well as the vulnerable victims who join them. & of course much more!
We had possibly too much fun on this one. Episode 22 we talk about someone creating a fake profile using my picture and business name, fake personas everywhere in the (social) media, and how just about everything these days is “fake news.”
On our TWENTIETH episode (!!!), we talk about Charlie’s 29th birthday during the COVID/smoke quarantine, our thoughts on The Social Dilemma Netflix documentary, whether we view it responsible to bring a new life into the “new normal,” and much more.
We missed this and missed you! I think we can all agree that things have been weird & we felt the need to take a break and get adjusted in the current times. Fortunately, we feel ready to get back at this and make it more of a priority. Thank you to our supporters, youContinue reading “Ep 17: WE BACK!”
On our 16th episode, we discuss – Music Competitions! Specifically, we talk about American Idol, The Voice, The X Factor, The Masked Singer, Rhythm and Flow, and Songland. Is this genre as impactful as it used to be? Did any of these shows surprise or deserve more respect? How will these shows be effected by the pandemic? Let us know your favorites and your thoughts!
On Dating Shows Pt.2, we discuss the most recent episode of The Bachelor’s: Listen to your Heart. We also dive deep into the UK show, Love Island. Additionally, we question and consider the dark side to reality television.
The Ten Acre Wood presents… Media Talk! We decided to focus on a topic that we both love and laugh about together daily. Our first episode on media had to be reality dating shows! Why do we love to hate them so much!?
We discuss the classics and our most recently viewed: Too Hot to Handle, Love is Blind, Listen to your Heart, The Bachelor, Love Island, Flirty Dancing, and Married at First Sight.
On episode 13, we talk about the way people as well as businesses have responded to COVID-19. A pandemic seems to bring out the truth of human nature. What are the big lessons and how will this effect the longterm future?
We hope you are all staying home, staying safe and staying sane! On the twelfth episode, we talk about endless perceptions and the impact of positive feedback. We also look back on our smoker pasts, missed memories of working at Whole Foods, and embarrassing porn-watching tales.
We’re here – we’re alive! We hope you are all hanging in there and staying safe during these unknown times. This week we talk a lot about what’s going on right now and how it has effected our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the world.
WARNING: Not for family listeners…!! On the tenth episode, we (of course) address some of the Coronavirus craziness. We also talk about stinky feet, queefs, bathroom habits… and then somehow segue into sex…? It’s an uncomfortable description, but hopefully a funny and relatable listen.
On our eighth episode, we explain some of our personal struggles with doing the podcast at this stage, how parenthood has softened us, extremely awkward situations during millennial puberty, and our initial perceptions of one another.
On this week’s episode, we confess a big parental fear, ask who gets to decide whether you’ve “made it,” and discuss why we call YouTubers our friends, making commercial parodies, and thinking back to music from the early 2000’s.
We all constantly have an internal dialogue going on in our minds, otherwise known as our thoughts. The reason I prefer the term “internal dialogue” is because I think it better describes the control we have over this voice. It’s hard to imagine that our identity is not our thoughts alone. How can we manageContinue reading “Let’s Discuss: Steering the Voices of Anger & Negativity”
Episode 5 is live! This week we talk about our first year of marriage, the never-ending excuses, and how we plan to overcome them to fulfill our many 2020 resolutions! If you’re here, we love you and appreciate you being a part of our growth. Thank you!
I haven’t dyed my hair in years! And now – I can do whatever color I want! So, I decided to go crazy….. and do it MYSELF…. NEON PINK! BUT – I didn’t want to use bleach. My mother in law used Arctic Fox just that week and told me it was vegan and evenContinue reading “I Dyed My Natural Dark Blonde Hair Pink”
Disclaimer: I am NOT a professional. I am just a new mom experimenting with DIY projects and sharing my experiences along the way! Like most new moms…. I don’t have time for makeup! Also – I just don’t love wearing it anymore. My goal is to have clear enough skin that I feel confident enoughContinue reading “Face Moisturizer”
The Mood Cure by Julia Ross is my brain and nutrition bible. This book has helped me to start understanding how our minds work and how the nutrition we feed ourselves can either feed or starve our brains function. As I slowly unpack all the information this book has to offer, I wanted to storeContinue reading “The Mood Cure – Notes Part 1”
Film: The Barkley Marathons Source: Netflix About: “Every year, 40 international runners descend upon a small town in Tennessee to test their mental and physical limits against the Barkley Marathons.

Charlie’s second race in the Winter Trail Series by Northwest Trail Runs. After the breakfast burrito fiasco at Whole Foods before the Carkeek Cooler, we decided to stay home and make egg sandwiches and ice coffee ourselves this time. Another necessary change was Charlie’s trail footwear, his Merrels were slipping on every wet surface and noContinue reading “12k at the Ravenna Refresher”
Both Charlie and I were practically jumping at the chance to go back to Gold Bar. We were working a lot of hours at this time and being outside was by far our new favorite release, especially since we had one day of the week to do it together for the entire day. I don’tContinue reading “Gold Bar, WA: Bridal Falls & Lake Serene”

Fast forward two years after changing jobs, homes, and even our lifestyles too,Continue reading “Issaquah, WA: Bullitt Fireplace Trail on Squak Mountain”
I had hiked Snow Lake with my dad, step mom, sister, and step brother a really long time ago as a child, and although I could not remember all the details, I still referred to it as my favorite hike to date. I just remember being exhausted and ill prepared wearing Goodwill jeans from theContinue reading “Snoqualmie Pass, WA: Snow Lake”
Charlie had recently gone night hiking with a couple past coworkers of ours on Bandera Mountain, so we decided to go to one of their other recommended spots together in Gold Bar called Wallace Falls and Lake. Even though I am from the area, I had not even remembered the town of Gold Bar. NotContinue reading “Gold Bar, Wa: Wallace Falls & Lake”
