Emma: I do know the place I’m going to position the Christmas tree or considered one of them, I’ve a couple of Christmas tree, clearly. However the primary Christmas tree, the place Santa will carry the gifts, I do know the place that’s gonna move. It’s this type of great place for a Christmas tree, that clearly I’ll put a faux plan or one thing there the remainder of the yr. However I additionally idea I would possibly transform an individual who does a Halloween tree as a result of they’re simply roughly tacky, however I additionally roughly love them. So I would possibly do it.
Elsie: I began making embellishes for mine with my little pottery stuff. However I don’t suppose I’m gonna get the tree this yr, I feel I’m going to attend till I’ve extra embellishes received.

Elsie: Take it from somebody who’s moved 18 occasions, I will be able to provide you with recommendation about this. The primary yr that you just do your vacation decorations in a brand new house isn’t the most efficient yr. It’s a must to construct it up, you must do a convention run. Then you must spend the entire subsequent yr excited about it after which you’ll be able to do your large shebang.

Now we have a one-year-old, and I make money working from home. There’s some arduous issues with transferring anyway however then the ones two elements, I feel upload to it. Then there’s numerous organizing that is going into that, which I feel is in reality a laugh but additionally duties take time. So I’m viewing that as like, let’s have a laugh with that.
Elsie: It will probably weigh on you prefer whilst you first transfer into a brand new house. It’s arduous to stay your standpoint that adore it’s now not intended to be best but as a result of it may be many months. On every occasion Clea moved into her new house and he or she stated she had the whole lot put away the primary evening or no matter, I used to be like, what?

I don’t know, I feel it’s k if it takes you months and even years to settle into your house utterly and to get all your listing achieved. Even if I’m very jealous of what she did and I wish to know the way.
Emma: Yeah, unquestionably. Unquestionably. Then there’s additionally decluttering that has to occur previous to transferring, however I feel to me, I all the time recall to mind it as two rounds. Spherical one is like k, I gotta declutter as a result of I don’t wish to pay to transport stuff that we don’t even want anymore or need anymore. Then you definitely transfer in and I believe such as you set the whole lot up after which abruptly you’re like, oh, this doesn’t in reality have compatibility, or oh, I didn’t understand we don’t in reality want this anymore for the reason that home is other, or no matter.
Elsie: That may be a good thing. Yeah, you will have to unquestionably have two rounds. Now and again your taste adjustments a bit bit simply by transferring to another space even if you didn’t imply for it to. It simply naturally does.

I simply really feel like I want to simply roughly move simple on myself in each and every method that I will be able to. So anyway, I assumed I used to be roughly happening extra of self-care theme or extra of a comfy self-care, sit back the f*ck out roughly theme. So anyway, I put down the I wish to be told one thing new, doesn’t need to be large, doesn’t need to be tough. I simply discovered to make use of my pottery kiln, which I will have to speak about that however I suppose subsequent episode or quickly. I simply discovered that and I imply, like, oh my god, finding out a brand new factor, it opens up universes. It’s probably the most creatively pleasing factor that I’ve in my existence. So I’ve a few issues that I’ve been short of to be informed for years now and I simply stay pronouncing it and pronouncing it and pronouncing it and gathering the provides, however simply now not somewhat coming into it but. So the primary one is I wish to learn how to make the colourful pasta, now not uninteresting pasta, now not white pasta, colourful, the rainbow, the patterns, all that roughly pasta is in particular calling my call.

It’s simply the enjoyment of having a look at it whilst you’re achieved.
Emma: Yeah. Suitable for eating craft mission.
Elsie: Sure, sure. So I wish to do this. Then the opposite factor I’ve by no means gotten into is making pies and I in reality wish to do it. Yeah, as a result of I nonetheless purchase frozen pie crust. Once I advised this to Emma, she used to be like, this is so gross.

Elsie: K, then now we have evidence. So yeah, I wish to learn how to make elaborate pie crests. It will be a just right factor to do. Yeah, some lattices, some cutouts, similar to, I don’t know, some bizarre ones. I imply, I really like having a look at them on Pinterest, and I’m all the time saving footage of them. However I haven’t in reality made anything else that used to be a great elaborate pie. So yeah, the ones are my two issues. One or the opposite doesn’t need to be each. I simply need to take a look at one thing new and get the entire method into it this season. I like it. What’s your subsequent one?
Emma: My 2nd one is I wish to paintings on a selection of seasonal kiddo books.
Elsie: I’ve some issues to mention about that.

So I’d like so as to add to his assortment so that we have got the ones for midnight bedtime. I imply, we learn books roughly all through the day, however particularly at bedtimes as smartly. So the regimen, you recognize.
Elsie: So yeah, we’ve been gathering seasonal child books since I suppose 5 years. I simply wrote the entire posts for Youth Magic concerning the other vacations, for books for them. So a few of them I didn’t have that many, like Thanksgiving, as an example, I in reality simplest had a pair that used to be like vaguely fall-themed. So I were given some new ones to take a look at for that publish and it used to be in reality a laugh. It did open me up as a result of I feel previously it used to be like 90% Halloween and Christmas however now we also have like some St Patrick’s Day books. So you’ll be able to thieve some from my closet at the method out and I unquestionably improve you coming into this as a result of for somebody with youngsters and even simply youngsters on your existence. For me truthfully, I really like image books and I’d accumulate the books it doesn’t matter what. However that is this type of particular assortment as a result of we generally upload one or two a yr. So that you don’t have so as to add an entire lot. It’s like perhaps the primary yr you purchase a number however then you definitely simply upload one or two a yr or I do move a bit loopy for Halloween.
Emma: The age too so that you begin to get other books like Oscar doesn’t have books with paper pages but as a result of he would rip that. He’s now not there but so that you get other ones through the years too. However yeah, we were given a pair for Easter. I were given him one in his Easter basket and considered one of his grandma’s were given one in his Easter basket. I used to be roughly like, oh, we’ll see as a result of he roughly likes the similar books over and over again. However we put the ones in and he in reality favored them. It used to be like a couple of bunny so it used to be in reality adorable. So I used to be like, k, he does like a brand new e-book. That is nice. We’ll get Halloween stuff, Thanksgiving stuff, fall, no matter.
Elsie: Sure, you’re gonna like it.
Emma: Offers me one thing new to learn too as a result of I don’t learn a e-book each and every time.
Elsie: It’s true. Yeah. The children wiped clean off their cabinets by way of themselves and submit their Halloween books by way of themselves. They even advised me which of them had been too frightening to position on the most sensible the place they may be able to’t succeed in it. Yeah, it simply warms my middle that now it’s like this type of a part of our existence to change out the books and the e-book collections. It’s unquestionably a convention.
Emma: Neatly, it turns into part of the room decor too. When you have the cabinets the place it’s extra of a show and they may be able to clutch them, which is excellent as a result of then they may be able to get them too. So anyway, it’s virtually such as you’re roughly placing out some decorations in some way.
Elsie: I’m so glad you’re doing that. My 2nd one is that I wish to put extra idea and effort this yr into Thanksgiving. So roughly like what we’re simply speaking about, I feel that you just building up your traditions through the years. In the event you attempt to do too many new issues suddenly, then perhaps not anything will stick. However now I do know now we have our established Christmas regimen, now we have our established Halloween regimen. We do make Thanksgiving dinner, however I feel shall we upload extra to it. I used to be considering we will make it like a multi-day tournament with like arrangements. I used to be considering most likely concerning the pie marathon, which is so adorable. Perhaps play a definite recreation or watch a definite film or adorning the desk in combination the week earlier than in preparation, simply roughly excited about that. This yr, I wish to simply put extra into it so if somebody has concepts which are simply in reality significant Thanksgiving concepts for little children, I would really like to listen to. You don’t have to start out all your traditions along with your youngsters within the first yr. You’ll be able to get started them anytime. What’s your subsequent one?
Emma: So this one is only a laugh. So I’ve mentioned this earlier than, I mentioned it within the first episode this season however I’ve been writing a fiction novel. I in reality need fiction writing to be part of my profession someday in my existence. So I’m principally practising at this time and looking to paintings on that. So anyway, I’ve made numerous growth on my homicide e-book, as I really like to name it. So my objective is to have my first draft achieved by way of Thanksgiving and I feel I’ll be capable to make that. Then when I’m achieved with that first draft, I’m gonna like, depart it for a bit bit, perhaps till after Christmas, we’ll see. Then transfer on from there. So I’m hoping to put in writing somewhat slightly this coming season, simply autumn. What a good time to put in writing, this type of comfortable season. That is the time, sort, sort sort, drink some sizzling chocolate sort, sort, sort so it’ll be nice.
Elsie: Ah, that’s particular. That makes me in reality proud. K, my 3rd one is a non-public objective. So I in reality wish to beef up my images and video talents. So I’ve been excited about this in recent years, however I like to paintings on my own. I’ve felt for years now that I used to be depending on a photographer when can I’ve a photographer and will have to I’ve a videographer and who can assist me with this? I used to be simply depending on other folks such a lot. I spotted that it will make me really feel proud but additionally simply extra creatively fulfilled if I had been in a position to execute all of my very own inventive paintings for our blogs myself. In order that’s what I’ve been operating against and this season, that’s one thing that I wish to put numerous time into. So I feel for me a minimum of the one method to be informed is repetitive practising. So simply attempting and getting higher and attempting and getting a bit like one inch higher every time. In order that’s what I’m hoping for this season. Inform me you probably have any guidelines.
Emma: No, now not in reality.
Elsie: As a result of you’re taking your personal pictures always.
Emma: I used to be gonna say I really like images and really feel beautiful just right at it so far as like my paintings. So I do meals images most commonly, as you guys most certainly know. Each every so often I’ve pals requested me to do portraits for them, like a circle of relatives portrait or simply one thing like that. I’m all the time glad to do it. It’s very a laugh, however I’m now not excellent at it as it’s an entire other bag. So anyway, I believe like just right on the images that I typically do for paintings which is numerous meals images or small crafts or such things as that. However I can say I may unquestionably get on board with operating on my videographer talents as a result of particularly enhancing, I simply don’t in reality experience enhancing video clips.
Elsie: My manner of enhancing is like racing for the end line. Simply looking to do it the quickest conceivable method so I just about put no time or effort into it. So even a bit bit extra making plans and energy, I feel would most certainly be substantial for the place I’m at at this time.
Emma: Neatly, I really like what you stated about getting a bit bit higher. I believe like I may do this mentality of why don’t you simply make your video 1% higher than your ultimate video, as a result of I do once in a while really feel crushed by way of it. There’s such a lot of issues you’ll be able to do with video enhancing, versus enhancing a nonetheless picture, simply transitions and textual content and song, and simply the entire issues. So I feel like, yeah, excited about it extra like that, I’m simply going to make this one a bit bit higher than my ultimate one, or I’m going to take a look at a reasonably other method of transitioning from the stairs into the overall piece or no matter it’s. I really like that concept.
Elsie: A laugh. Yeah, I feel that might be a laugh. I simply in reality wish to roughly focal point alone inventive stuff a bit bit extra this season. I didn’t put anything else like child comparable on right here as a result of with our new website online Youth Magic, it’s like integrated now, even 100 occasions greater than it used to be earlier than, that we freaking will do crafts always. We do it each day. You’ve been with me all week now and has there been an afternoon after we didn’t make artwork?
Emma: No, Goldie is all the time drawing, it’s simply all the time so adorable.
Elsie: So yeah, I unquestionably am nonetheless that. I simply don’t really feel like I’ve to make it a objective at this time as it’s this type of set a part of our way of life. Alright, so we had roughly a fascinating listener request this time. So it says, describe town/state the place you reside to your non-American listeners who’ve by no means visited that area. So I assumed it used to be so attention-grabbing as it’s arduous to think about your personal existence and your personal place of origin as other or international however I assumed it used to be a really perfect query. The extra I thought of it, the extra I couldn’t prevent excited about it. So I wrote down somewhat a couple of notes and I’m excited to listen to what you are saying as a result of Emma, in the event you guys didn’t know, Emma lives in my place of origin, the place I lived my complete existence. Now I reside in Nashville the place I’ve lived for seven years.
Emma: Yeah, yeah, whilst you put this at the define, we had been speaking about it a bit bit, I used to be like, it’s so attention-grabbing as a result of I believe like after I move consult with someplace new, I’m hyper having a look at the whole lot, like what’s the elements really feel like? What’s the city really feel like? What’s the meals like, blah, blah, blah. While I feel whilst you’re like, describe the place you reside, I’m like, huh, it’s beautiful customary. That’s what is going via my thoughts. It’s like, what does that imply? It’s simply humorous. So I used to be excited about describe the place I reside, looking to consider it as though I wasn’t from there and took a travel there.
Elsie: So first, say like, what town is after which the overall specifications of it and such things as that.
Emma: So the world I reside, the state and area, I suppose can be southwest Missouri. So I believe adore it’s transform well-known lately from the display Ozark. So we get all 4 seasons. It’s in truth in reality hilly, now not mountainy, however very hilly. So whilst you’re riding round from town to town, it’s in reality gorgeous particularly in the summertime when the whole lot’s inexperienced and within the fall when the entire leaves exchange. It’s only a in reality, in reality picturesque position. Numerous other people in truth don’t learn about Southwest Missouri, but it surely’s in truth in reality, in reality gorgeous. We even have numerous lakes. So there’s numerous lake existence. Yeah, I don’t personal a ship or anything else, however we hire boats somewhat regularly and that’s a factor other people do at the weekends or other people may have a lake space. I don’t have a lake space however that’s kind of like a factor in our spaces. There’s loads of lakes. So it’s in truth in reality beautiful. Lakes are in reality beautiful and really a laugh in the event you like being open air, which I do. So anyway, that’s roughly a bit bit about Southwest Missouri. As a area, I feel you’ll be able to pay attention my accessory I grew up there. It’s now not in reality southern. It’s very Midwest however there are individuals who have extra of a southern accessory
Elsie: No longer as many as at the display Ozark although. I feel that regularly Missouri is more or less perhaps at the cusp the place other people recall to mind it as extra southern than it in reality is.
Emma: That’s what I’d say as it’s now not like I don’t have any, we are saying issues which are fairly southern. I’d suppose extra although is the cooking, the meals, like what’s conventional or what used to be nostalgic is an excessively mixture of Midwest and southern cooking, like nation cooking. In order that’s a laugh. So I feel it’s like a pleasant combine. I in reality adore it. In the event you’re now not acquainted with america Springfield, Missouri, which is town I reside in, is smack in the midst of the primary United States. So now not Alaska and Hawaii, however the remainder of the states. It’s very smack within the heart.
Elsie: Continental United States. Once I recall to mind Missouri meals, I recall to mind honest meals, like fried meals. Yeah. There’s fairs after which I recall to mind chili, such things as that. The type of meals you could possibly have at a tailgate birthday party, soccer tradition. That kind of factor. I feel that’s in reality beautiful correct. Would you are saying?
Emma: I feel so. Then Springfield, Missouri, the place I reside is the 3rd greatest town in Missouri, which we don’t have main main towns like New York or Los Angeles, but it surely’s like Kansas Town and St. Louis are the most important towns, after which Springfield’s subsequent. How I recall to mind it although, is extra like a faculty the town. Now we have numerous faculties and universities. I went to Missouri State, Missouri State is in Springfield, Missouri. So it’s in truth a lovely numerous house in that we have got numerous faculty scholars and those who come there for school and finally end up getting jobs or perhaps getting married or one thing they usually finally end up staying, they adore it they usually keep. So there’s numerous that. I feel it’s now not in reality a small the town, however I feel it looks like a small the town. You roughly get the place you have got a definite workforce of pals and also you’ll see them randomly, like at puts the place you weren’t anticipating.
Elsie: I don’t really feel relaxed calling it a small the town as a result of I feel other people recall to mind Schitt’s Creek form of like a real small the town. Yeah, like the place our grandma lives, like an hour away, that’s a real small the town. However I don’t suppose it’s a medium-sized the town as a result of I feel a medium-sized the town is like Nashville. So it’s like a small, a large small the town. I don’t know.
Emma: I don’t know the way a lot larger or smaller it’s in Nashville. Our airports don’t really feel that other, truthfully. So it’s roughly humorous, but it surely’s unquestionably smaller than Nashville.
Elsie: It’s most certainly like part as large as Nashville, inhabitants sensible.
Emma: It has a in reality nice value of residing. It’s a great spot to boost a circle of relatives or now not, simply a great spot to reside. I in reality adore it. I imply, I used to be born and raised there. After faculty, I lived in Los Angeles for 3 years, however then I moved again to Springfield, and I don’t have any plans to transport. I in reality adore it there. I feel it’s nice.
Elsie: However I believe such as you forgot one thing very main since you didn’t point out Branson, Missouri, which is simplest half-hour clear of our place of origin and this can be a main appeal in Missouri.
Emma: I assumed I mentioned it a bit bit with the treehouse episode the place I used to be like, I stayed on this fashionable tree space for my writing retreat, however that used to be in Branson, Missouri. The power from Springfield to Branson could be very gorgeous and picturesque and but Branson is close to lakes. It additionally has loads of presentations and points of interest and likewise has Silver Buck Town.
Elsie: It has kitschy stuff. Yeah, it’s magical. It’s humorous. I like it.
Emma: Actually you’ll be able to power to somewhat a couple of beautiful attention-grabbing puts from Springfield. Springfield itself has loads of in reality nice bars, eating places, and low retail outlets. In the event you had been there for a complete week, it’s good to move to the entire other puts. In the event you reside there, it’s now not like an unlimited quantity. Like in the event you reside in large town, it’s good to most certainly move to another eating place each and every week for a yr. It’s now not that massive in any respect however has a in reality just right combine and it’s in reality attention-grabbing, just like the Golden Woman Rum Membership. Which we’ve now had open for a protracted, very long time. It’s a bar that my husband and I are phase homeowners of, however I’m the least necessary of the entire homeowners, however that’s roughly transform a staple of our sq., of our downtown house in order that’s in reality a laugh. I feel Springfield’s like a surprisingly cool position that no person’s in reality heard of, even though everybody now and again we pop up in like bizarre films or TV presentations.
Elsie: Yeah, it’s a in reality adorable town. It’s the place my crimson home is. K, so let’s speak about Nashville a bit bit. So I moved right here seven years in the past and we moved right here for my husband’s profession in song. I really like Nashville. I’d say it’s a medium-sized the town however numerous other people recall to mind it as a large town as a result of it’s extra well-known than it’s large if that is smart. So Nashville has an excessively, very huge tourism business. During the last, I don’t know decade or so since I’ve lived right here it has transform like a bachelorette birthday party town in a large method. I’ve heard other people say that there’s polls about the most well liked bachelorette towns and it’s unquestionably like up there. It’s attention-grabbing. So there is more or less to me Nashville has many portions to it. So in the event you move downtown, there’s a side road referred to as Broadway and it’s roughly like loads of vibrant neon indicators and it’s all Honky Tonk bars. There’s reside song coming from each and every unmarried door you go.
Emma: How would you describe a honky tonk bar for individuals who don’t know?
Elsie: A rustic song bar. Yeah, only a bar that performs nation song, and once in a while they play outdated vintage nation song. Numerous the bars are named like there’s like a Child Rock bar, they’re named after well-known other people. There’s a large combine and a few of it’s interesting to all other demographics. So yeah, that is part of Nashville. However for me, it’s now not in reality part of my Nashville as a result of I very infrequently move there. I in truth went there ultimate week, proper earlier than Emma were given right here and I used to be like, I went to Broadway as a result of a factor I’m pleased with, I generally simplest move every year. Yeah, so for me, it’s too many under the influence of alcohol other people. I really like different portions of town. There’s different fascinating portions of town. I feel that some of the misconceptions about Nashville is that numerous individuals who come right here on a bachelorette birthday party or one thing like that, they just move to that one a part of the town. So that they recall to mind it as like, kind of like this large birthday party, song under the influence of alcohol town. I don’t in reality suppose that that represents Nashville. It’s very comfortable. The eating places are implausible, like 10 out of 10. The eating places in Nashville, unquestionably rival a town a lot larger than it’s. There’s such a lot of you’ll be able to by no means stay up. There’s all the time one you haven’t been to but that everybody’s speaking about, which is in reality cool. I feel it’s a very simple position to make pals. It’s a pleasant position. I unquestionably suppose I discovered southern issues from residing right here. Like rising up in Missouri, I by no means felt southern in any respect, like in any respect. I nonetheless don’t in reality, however I did by accident, unironically, say ya’ll two occasions in my existence since I’ve lived right here.
Emma: It’s simply quicker than you all.
Elsie: I imply, if I weren’t self-conscious, I’d just get started pronouncing it as a result of most of the people say it. Numerous individuals who reside in Nashville come from the extra rural portions of Tennessee, which is maximum of Tennessee. So that you meet numerous individuals who grew up a lot more southern than I did, which is in reality attention-grabbing. This can be a glorious position and if you wish to do a rustic song a part of your American voyage then I’d unquestionably counsel it.
Emma: Sure, it’s were given numerous historical past too as a result of such a lot of nation song stars after which different stars have began their careers right here or had large moments right here. So there’s numerous like that too, roughly like LA how there’s such a lot of.
Elsie: There’s numerous name-dropping, which I don’t thoughts. I really like famous person name-dropping, I feel it’s humorous. However yeah, in the event you had been riding round with a realtor, they’ll be like that’s the place Garth Brooks used to reside and that’s the place Reba McIntyre used to reside. Each space we visited after we had been space searching for a few years, virtually each and every space had gold information within the basement. It used to be similar to gold information in all places. Yeah, I feel it’s in reality humorous. I like it. However unquestionably, in the event you haven’t visited, you must. It’s particular. I feel it’s distinctive. It’s an American town. There’s not anything else adore it, proper?
Emma: Yeah and it appears, in the event you’re making plans a Bachelorette birthday party, then this may well be the spot.
Elsie: Yeah, I can say after we first moved right here, there weren’t as many accommodations and now there’s such a lot of stylish, gorgeous, beautiful accommodations with great eating places.
Emma: I really like a resort keep.
Elsie: It’s really easy to stick in accommodations right here. Yeah, I’d unquestionably do a resort over an Airbnb in the event you’re coming to Nashville, simply because it’s extra of an epic enjoy.
