Red Wine & Chaos

Red Wine & Chaos

As working moms, Laura & Ashley always knew there was more to their identities. After a few bottles of wine and a lot of good conversations, Red Wine & Chaos was born with the mission to share their chaos so that others don’t feel so alone in theirs. With honesty and humor, Laura & Ashley will share their stories of parenting, relationships, health & wellness, and everything in between.

He's back y'all! John joins me again this week as Lar takes the week off. We are chatting differences between men and women and what works for us. Shotzy makes another appearance and we give you our advice on how to manage the obvious gender differences all while finishing an excellent bottle of Chianti. Don't worry Lar, there's a second bottle waiting for you!

We always think things will slow down after the holidays but, news flash for all you moms about to have school aged kids, it doesn't. Between busy work schedules and re-adjusting to school schedules and extra curricular activities, we just don't have the room on our plates. So we bring you a little of this and a little of that - or as we like to call it, Chaos Potpourri. Pour a glass and join us for an all over the place ep...

Lar is out this week so I forced Red, aka EP, aka John Rach, to step in! This week we review a red blend while we chat about our lives (and chaos) over the last 16 years. From how we met to how we got engaged to our journey to parenthood, we cover it all - well almost all....

2021 is coming to a close and boy what a year it was! This week we talk how far we've come with the podcast and our biggest wins in 2021. It gets a little chaotic towards the end but would it really be Red Wine & Chaos without a little chaos?

This week we are coming at you from one of our favorite watering holes...The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange! While they are known for their extensive and exceptional beer list, their wine list is equally as amazing. So when Jim approached us to review the list, we knew it wouldn't disappoint. We go back to our roots for this episode, in more ways than one. We review a beautiful Pinot Noir while we discuss more AITA stories - this time...

It's holiday season and this week we are sharing some of our best gift ideas for you, your friends, your family and your kids.

Because this is an open and honest forum, it's no secret that part of our chaos is learning how to better ourselves. This week we both took a quiz to determine our boundary type. We take a closer look into each of ours and what they look like to us when we are balanced vs. out of balance. Join us as we review not 1 but 2 wines and as we break down what we learned from Terri Cole, author of The Boundary Boss, and how we are goin...

Happy Thanksgiving y’all! It’s been a wild week with the Kyle Rittenhouse case and you know your girls had some thoughts.

The holiday's are magical and filled with love but the holiday blues are so, so real. This week we talk how we keep things together but are also open about how we pull ourselves out of a hole. If you're feeling the holiday blues, know you're not alone. Scream into a pillow, binge watch Jax Teller in Sons of Anarchy, or go try a new wine (or coffee) and know we are here for you!

We're back with another AITA episode and this time we brought a friend. What started as a girls night turned into Lar and Ash "voluntelling" our girl Steph, aka Weezy, that she was our next guest! Listen as we weigh in on the next round of assholes. There's no shortage of crazy this time around and Lar found some real doozies today, including baby mama drama, stabbings, and bold husbands. You don't want to miss ...

Welcome to our new segment - Chaos Potpourri. Where we have a lot we want to talk about but can't narrow it down to one topic. This week we chat about Spanx founder Sarah Blakely, the COVID vaccine for kids, and all kinds of other random stuff. We're all over the place this episode but definitely embracing the chaos.

We may not be professional advice givers but we certainly have a lot of opinions. This week we test our "Dear Judy" skills as we take on "Am I The Asshole" questions and weigh in with the rest of Reddit. In this episode we cover household chores, Halloween, squatters, and lazy baby daddies. We kept it pretty tame this time around but we make no promises for round two.

This week we are tackling two things slightly outside of our comfort zone - Merlot and Fashion trends. Just because we love our hoodies and leggings doesn't mean we are completely oblivious to fashion trends but there are some out there that we just can't get behind (we're looking at you crop tops and mesh shirts). Join us while we chat about current trends, what trends we are excited to try, and Lar's biggest pet p...

Everyone has loss. Everyone has grief. But that doesn't mean that grief is transferrable. Your grief is all your own but that doesn't mean you are alone!

This week we chat about grief and what it means to us. Whether is grieving the loss of a parent, a job, or our old selves, we'll touch on how we feel when we're going through it and why it's okay to feel what you feel. Your grief journey is unique to you but pl...

We all have a limit. Every single one of us. Emotional limits, physical limits, and mental limits are present in both our personal and professional lives. How do you manage when you hit your capacity? How do you wade through the mud to find the light at the end of the tunnel?

It happens to all of us and it comes and goes like the waves. Join us this week as we chat about our limits and how we get through when we've hit our capa...

We spent one last wine night at Lar's house to bring you this weeks episode. With the cooler weather settling in, we are settling in to our fall TV line up and warm red wines - the perfect combo if you ask us! We are chatting all things fall TV - our returning favorites, some new shows we need to pick up, and even our favorite Disney movies. We may be TV junkies but these junkies are always looking for more. So, tell us what yo...

Join us as we share jokes and funny stories over a couple Bellini's made with Deep Eddy's Peach Vodka and Cupcake Prosecco. The jokes may be corny but that's what makes them funny!

Mom guilt. We all have it and we all wish we didn't.

This week we talk about the our biggest mom guilt moments and how we manage those. We also give some ideas on how to cope with it and tips to manage it. And, if you need any sort of reassurance that you're doing a great job, just listen to Ashley's story about poop...again.
