  • In-Between: It’s My Birthdayyy & Lessons Learned

    It’s your favorite TRIPLE TAURUS’ BIRTHDAY WEEK!!! Ayeeeee! It’s also the TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of The In-Between – How!?!  I’m full of energy (and glam) on this week’s episode. 

    Here’s a quick look:

    • It’s my birthday, boo! Weekend getaway to the mountains 
    • Newly “discovered” childhood trauma aka Liz’s need to be accepted by anxiety – fun times!
    • Angry AF, an app to help men with their emotional intelligence *scratches head*
    • The new Dua Lipa album (I’m a Dua STAN)
    • Current icks: Not being able to split checks, the fact that it’s an election year, and misleading headlines. 
    • The anniversary of the podcast & what I’ve learned so far:
      • 1. Starting is the hardest part; that doesn’t mean this journey isn’t free of challenges but getting over the initial hump is/was the hardest part.
      • 2. Constantly being pushed out of my comfort zone (but finding out that’s where the magic happens)
      • 3. How to truly believe in and have confidence in ME; not seeking external validation

    We’re a little all over the place, but when are we not? You’ll be giggling and feeling empowered no matter what. 😉 

  • In-Between: A Podcaster’s Journey & Jurassic Park with Logan Lewis

    I’ve got a special guest on the podcast this week. Welcome fellow podcaster, Logan Lewis, of Your Morning Drive!

    Sometimes you let the conversation lead and see where it takes you. For me and Logan, our conversation took us on a journey through podcasting. Logan has been podcasting for a few years now as a hobby. He goes through all the different variations of his podcasting, from the different names and themes, multiple rebrandings, and how he evolved his show to Your Morning Drive and the inspiration for it.

    I love an origin story and appreciate Logan sharing his non-linear path and all the pivots that followed. This is a great episode for anyone interested in starting a podcast or personal brand, especially if they have the resistance to start. You don’t have to have it all figured out! Heck, you can change the name one, two, even six times if you want! Just start. This episode is a great reminder that you do not have to have it all figured out.

    Oh, and we’re also talking about pop culture, specifically Jurassic Park (fun fact: one of my favorite movies!).

    Hold on to your butts (JPark reference LOL) and enjoy my chat with Logan! & be on the lookout for our live podcast show – ETA 2025 😉

  • In-Between: Seasonal Allergies & Self-Intellectualization

    Allergy season is in full swing in Georgia, and I am suffering! I didn’t know you could develop allergies as an adult. *Insert all the frowny face emojis*

      • What are examples?
    •  Why suppressing or avoiding extreme or intense emotions over time can really affect your emotional,  mental, and physical health
    • Difference in self-intellectualization and self-rationalization (they’re two different self-defense mechanisms)

    • What we can do to combat self-intellectualization?
      • Ask yourself, what am I avoiding?

    Remember, things discussed in today’s episode should not be considered medical advice and is only for educational purposes. If this episode resonated with you or made you think of someone you may know, I highly encourage you to go talk to a professional. 

  • In-Between: Pivot Pivot Pivot

    When things don’t go as planned, sometimes you just have to pivot. LOL. 

    On this week’s In-Between – 

    • I’m sharing my most recent technical setback – the dreaded remote recording that didn’t work
    • April birthday celebrations! Inflatable art installations and dressing up as Bob’s Burgers; side note-  my man can rock a mustache 
    • Eclipse moments 
    • Calling any type of customer service and dreading it – looking at you T-Mobile
    • My current loves – from clean skincare, sustainable clothing, catching up on my fav podcasts, reading more, and actually going to bed before 11 pm!

    Giggle, relax, and catch up with me on an all new in-between 

  • In-Between: Solo Sesh Long Time No Talk

    Long time no solo sesh! How is everyone doing?! I’m back for a solo pod this week after back-to-back special guests and it’s time to debrief! FYI – I’m HYPE today. It’s only cause I missed you so much. 

    In today’s episode we’re catching up on:

    • My Women’s Wellness Series conclusion – what did we think? What did we take away? 
      • Your girl got to record in a podcast studio and it was SO cool. I definitely learned some things, like, you should never film with your phone vertically because then 16:9 ratios don’t work. *nervous laughter*
    • The website is live! Wow – it’s only been almost a year but she’s live and beautiful! 
    • Collabs on collabs on collabs! Listen to see what I’ve got working for Autism Awareness Month. I’m recording an episode about neurodiversity. 
    • Getting duped on April Fools
    • Cowboy Carter – obsessed! Beyonce does it again 
    • Pop culture rapid fire – what happened to Euphoria? 
    • No house…. yet
    • Do I have a habsburg jaw?! 

    And it wouldn’t be The In-Between if I didn’t end the episode with some Lizdoms to get you through the week. 

  • In-Between: What’s it like to be Introverted w/ Jay & Steph from Stay Introverted

    We've all heard the word introvert, but what exactly does that mean? Jay and Steph from the Stay Introverted podcast join me on this week's In-Between and answer that very question and also explain how two introverts started a podcast. 

    In this week's episode, the three of us talk about:

    • What is an introvert? What does it mean to be introverted? 
    • Misconceptions and unfair stereotypes about introverted individuals
    • Differences between introverts and extroverts and how they play off each other 
    • Social dynamics and personal relationships between introverts and extroverts
    • How the pandemic highlighted the introverted community
    • What your introverted friends want you to know 

    As an extrovert myself, I learned SO much from Jay and Steph about being introverted. Heck, this conversations even made me question myself – am I fully extroverted? Another question, has my extroversion affected my introverted husband? **laughs nervously**

    I also joined Jay and Steph on their podcast, so be sure to check that out too!

  • In-Between: Country Music & Real Estate

    Howdy! Who else can't stop listening to Beyonce's Texas Hold 'Em? Let's take to the floor now – 

    In this week's In-Between, I'm talking about:

    • Longer days are ahead! The sun will begin setting later in early March. Lookout summer girlys, we're close. 
    • Country music – Beyonce, thank you. Because I can't stop listening to her new music, I'm getting served some country, specifically Lainey Wilson. I go on about what I love about her sound…. but I also share my thoughts about why I've never considered myself a country fan (lol). 
    • Millennial confidence on social media 
    • Millennial insecurity on gen z slang (HAHA!), aka me trying to be relevant. I'm truly humbled by my geriatric millennial status. Listen to see what I'm giggling about. 
    • Are we buying a house?! No! Yes! Maybe! I'm giving you an update on that front,  but I'm sharing my thoughts on the online rhetoric about buying a home versus renting. I do not have all the answers, nor would I ever tell you what to do when it comes to housing, but I'm offering a little perspective from what I've noticed on social media, and how that has played into my anxiety and decision making. 
    • Getting ready for my March Women's Wellness Series – it's going to jam packed with great content!

  • In-Between: Romanticizing Your Life

    Hello February! In the theme of love, today's episode talks about romanticizing your life.  Maybe you heard this phrase during the pandemic, but we're essentially glamorizing the mundane day-to-day tasks. We are fabulous, even if we don't live in the French countryside, so why not play up our daily lives? I really love the concept because to me, it's another form of self love.  

    What else am I in-between this week? 

    • February themes of love and Groundhog day; anyone else feel like it's still 2019? 
    • New workout class
    • Unreal candy & finding healthier alternatives to snackies
    • Our country's new mental health support team, Sesame Street, starring Elmo! 
    • Crushing my ADHD and to-do lists
    • Making friends on the internet – should I bring back my Adult Friendships series? 
    • The Hurkle Durkle life
