Well, you've been on the edge of your seat waiting to hear all about the end of the LA trip. Wait no longer! In this episode the dynamic duo discusses their last night in the City of Angels and their BIG celebrity sighting in Part Two of their LA Recap! An outing to a fancy LA establishment did leave Christie and Nicole with an unexpected question about artichoke consumption. In true theme of the podcast, the end of a vacation and the transition to normal everyday life is about as underwhelming as things get. But it doesn't matter how long the jet lag or post-vaca bloat last, they are always ready for their next adventure!
Part Two of their discussion includes: Craig’s, Michael Bolton, California Pizza Kitchen, and Delta Sky Lounge, as well as all of the reasons to be underwhelmed when you return from a trip!

This Memorial Day Christie and Nicole give their listeners the gift of time travel. In order to keep the podcasts coming during holiday weekend travel, the dynamic duo pre-pre-recorded this week’s conversation (since we guess each week is technically pre-recorded until we go live). Christie and Nicole discuss tales of shared Memorial weekends past and their upcoming travel plans. Nicole is having a basic holiday at the beach while Christie has chosen the more hipster getaway inland. Oh my, you’re probably thinking, with two drastically different vacations what hash tag will they choose!? The dynamic duo also try to channel their inner Long Island Medium and Tyler Henry by predicting future events. And they predict that you’ll get a laugh out of this episode!
Celebrity podcasters often recap tales of their exotic vacations and glamorous tours. So why shouldn’t Christie and Nicole!?
The dynamic duo went on the very anticipated one-day vacation to the capital of the free world- Washington DC! They visited no historic sights (unless you count the hotel wallpaper) and walked into zero museums- there simply wasn’t time! Christie and Nicole did, however, meet the hilarious duo Heather McDonald and Chris Franjola, somehow managed to be underwhelmed by cheese, and were shocked to learn that one day vacations seem rushed.
If you ever plan to spend 24 hours in Washington DC, Christie and Nicole provide you their official recommendations from this trip. They Include:
It's SPRING BREAK!!!!...season that is. Unfortunately, only Nicole has something that resembles a spring break this year. Luckily, over a decade ago the dynamic duo was able to experience a true Spring Break or two so they aren't bitter about being adults or anything. To celebrate those lucky enough to have a real spring break, Christie and Nicole are reminiscing about their favorite Spring Break highlights together. In doing so, they come to the realization that they may actually be more "spring vacationers" than "spring breakers." Christie and Nicole probably wouldn't survive long on a revival of MTV's spring break as they've taken a vow against pull out sofas, cold showers, clubbing, and any form of ticketing system to obtain meals. Instead the girls plan their ideal spring vacation, which would include massages and other spa services, fine(r) wine, and cold possibly resemble the 1995 film, Heavyweights.
