About Us

Mixing Up Midlife is a weekly show for mid-lifers and empty nesters who want to shake up their middle years one challenge at a time. Each week Terri, a self-described “Boomer by Birth, Millennial at Heart”, and her guests will be trying out things they’ve always dreamt of doing or have been curious about trying but hadn’t had the freedom (or courage) to do. Part reality show, part audio diary and part cocktail hour, each week women in their fifties and beyond will be challenging themselves by taking improv and writing classes, getting photographed in very public places, attending conferences for the time and remembering how to have fun in midlife.

49. Midlife Conversations, Movies & Cocktails

EWe’re talking about difficult conversations surrounding the election and COVID and how we (mostly Melissa), put the lessons we learned from our last episode to use. We move from serious to light with singing in the car, turning our mentions of cheerleading into a game and we talk about our Weekend Watch. We both loved The Queen’s Gambit, Had all sorts of thoughts on the Netflix holiday movie, Dash & Lily and sang a few bars of Terri’s favorite Christmas song, Fairytale of New York (Not Galway Christmas) by the Pogues. Melissa finished Schitts Creek, watched PBS’s Rise of the Nazis https://www.pbs.org/show/rise-nazis/. We’re both watching The Undoing and both think it’s fun to have to wait for something that’s good. Terri adapted a cocktail and infused her own vodka with chai spices. It was a bit extra, but totally worth it! Chai Spiced Mule https://www.liquor.com/recipes/chai-spice-mule/ Keep sending usyour splits.
