Women on a Mission!

Lori is a Hot Thrifty Mama living in little city, North Dakota. She is married to Steve and loves being mom to three-year-old Mur-Man. She also adores her dog Roger! Lori works full time and loves all things MOM! She loves couponing, crafting, cooking, sewing, and having a good time! She is a party planner extraordinaire. 

Ethne is lives in big city, Minnesota, despite regular threats (to the husbands) to live on a compound with Lori.  She is married to Shaun and loves her six-year-old twins, KD & Easy-Mac and handsome cat, Theodore. She works full-time and loves being a wife & mom.  In all her spare time, she also likes to read trashy novels, slap together some crafts, cook, garden and text on her Samsung Galaxy (not a paid endorsement, just a jab at her iPhone family).  She also wants to write a book.  She has to pick a subject first.

Lori and Ethne are best friends. They grew up in Williston, ND, and graduated from WHS in 1996. They cheered together, drove matching trucks, cruised Main Street, rioted, crafted, sewed and finished each other’s sentences. They were in each other’s weddings and now get together as often as possible. Whether over the phone or in person, any good conversation involves a debate on the latest national crime drama, updates on celebrity gossip and Facebook chatter and frequently venting about best-friend-only subjects.  It's a known fact (by Steve and Shaun) that if Lori and Ethne could ever talk to a television producer, they would be given their own show on the spot.
