Do you hear that? It’s the sweet sound of silence. Megan and Wendy talk about the back the school grind and goals they’ve set for themselves since they will be 100% kid-free for the first time in eighteen months. Plus, a DIY henna tattoo gone wrong, the Alabama sorority rush on TikTok and why Megan should have stuck with her early summer C25K program.
