Sister sister

My sister recommended the sister project so many times it started to get annoying … finally decided to check it out and I love listening to these lassies on my commute … We grew up in the Chicago suburbs (Palos) four sisters in the same time frame as these babes…so their content is hilarious and relatable. Their stories remind me so much of our childhood and their recommendations are fabulous as well.

if you guys could shout out my sister Kristin Reiff who is having a baby TODAY as I write this and turning 40 this year … she is one of my top three sisters ( can’t give her number one this year since our other sister Megan carried my baby for my husband and I this year 😆) She is one of the most amazing, loving, caring and fun and funny people that I know.

Happy birthday (6/20) twisted sister! … she earned the name from such genius moves as padlocking the belt loops of her jeans together so none of us could borrow them when she wasn’t home and zipping some of my backless bar tops (woohoo late 90s) into the back of a stuffed animal before leaving for college with them. Anyway she’s the best and so are Michelle and Lauren 🫶🏼

We have been talking about coming to an event so we can meet you gals in person ❤️until then I will continue to recommend the pod to friends…

Side note :love hearing about my moms lovely friend on the pod (Debby with a Y)

Shoutout from Alabama to the cozy ladies! You guys freaking rock! I look forward to your podcast so much every week! Your realness is such an inspiration and has actually inspired my bestie and I to put ourselves out there and start our own podcast! I grew up in Minneapolis so your midwestern voices and convos are so comforting! Thank you for all your fun stories and honest moments. You guys are doing great things! Keep it going and growing!!

Male Listener chiming in

I’m one of your male listeners! At first I listened just because my lady loves you ladies and she was always talking to me about the ideas and topics you all covered. But after listening to your show for a while I’m a fan too. Keep up the good work.
