I'm here to shake things up and challenge the status quo of motherhood. Let's throw out the old rulebook and create a new narrative where moms are living their dream lives unapologetically.

hi, friend

Feel like you need a total revamp?


I get it, daily routines can be overwhelming. But you? You're seeking life ownership. Dive into this beloved guide and tap into easy self-reflection, without overtaxing your brain.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Have you ever played the game “Would You Rather?” In this episode, Allie + Brian play “Would You Rather” in a fun Valentine’s Day Quiz! Some answers are funny + some will make you think about your own response. Get to know Brian + Allie in this Valentine’s Day episode!




In This Episode, Allie + Brian:

  • Share their answers to a ton of questions playing the game “Would You Rather?”


Mom life. We are surrounded with the message that it’s the tired life. The no-time-for-myself life. The hard life. And while it is hard and full of lots of servitude, the idea that motherhood means a joyless life is something I am passionate about putting a stop to.  I’m on a mission to help you stop counting down the minutes till bedtime, at least most days.  I want you to stop cleaning up after your kid’s childhood and start being present for it.  Start enjoying it. I believe in John 10:10 “that we are called to abundant life” and i know mothers are not excluded from that promise. Join me in conversations about simplicity, minimalism and lots of other good stuff that leads to a life of less for the sake of enjoying more in your motherhood.  I’m Allie Casazza and this is the The Purpose Show.


ALLIE:  Hey guys!  It’s Allie & Brian here!

We are doing a really fun episode for Valentine’s Day because the day this podcast comes out ended up on Valentine’s Day.  We thought it would be fun if we looked up a bunch of different marriage quizzes and pulled a bunch of random questions.  We haven’t really looked at them.  We are answering them for each other, not for ourselves.

BRIAN:  I was also thinking that if you were out on a date today, Valentine’s Day, this would be fun to take the quiz together.

ALLIE:  That’s a super smart idea.  Way to think. Conversation starters.

ALLIE:  Ok we are just going to dive in. I am going to ask the question and then say what I think.  Then you say your truth, what it really is.

QUESTION #1:   Would you rather play a board game or watch a movie with me?

ALLIE:  I am going to say watch a movie with me.

BRIAN:  Yeah, watch a movie. Board games get boring in about five minutes.

ALLIE: Wow, so you hate family game night?  Basically, that’s what you just said.

BRIAN: No, it’s fun with the kids.

ALLIE:  Ok, what’s my answer to that?

BRIAN:  Movie, obviously.

QUESTION #2:  Would you rather be a movie star or a famous musician?

ALLIE:  I know that you would pick a famous musician, because you are a drummer and a guitarist. You can do everything with music. You love music.  What do you think mine is?

BRIAN:  You love music too.

ALLIE:  Yeah, but that doesn’t necessarily….

BRIAN: I feel like you would rather be a musician.

ALLIE:  Yeah, I would never want to be a movie star because the thing I hate is everyone staring at me and that’s basically what a movie star is, with cameras and stuff.  So, no.

QUESTION # 3:  Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great, great grandchildren?

ALLIE:  Just answer this one for yourself, because I think it is interesting.

BRIAN:  I feel like I can possibly trace back and learn who my ancestors were, but I have no idea who my great, great grandchildren would be.  Obviously, that would be cool to see them.

ALLIE:  That’s a good point.  I would say ancestors, because I feel like meeting my great, great grandchildren would let me see way ahead and miss a bunch of gap things that happened, which would make me obsessively wonder what happened in my family. Then you would be obsessively wondering, “what happened to get them here?  Why are they all in Italy?”  You would not know the gaps and that would drive me crazy.  I would rather go back and know our history.

BRIAN:  I don’t think I would care to know….

ALLIE:  Ok, well, I think my answer wins.

QUESTION # 4:  Would you rather spend the next year exempt from all taxes or have one month paid vacation?

ALLIE:  I would say that we would both pick exempt from taxes because we are self-employed.

BRIAN:  Yes.

QUESTION # 5:  Would you rather always speak your mind or never speak again?

BRIAN:  You would always speak your mind.  That’s kind of what you do anyway.

{laughing}  You’re just always really honest.

ALLIE: You’re right.  I think you would rather never speak again.

BRIAN:  Probably.

ALLIE:  That’s kind of what you do now, anyway.  Just kidding!

QUESTION # 6:  Would you rather give or get bad advice?

ALLIE:  That’s a stupid question.

BRIAN:  I would hate to give bad advice. I would really hate that.

ALLIE:  I would pick get, because I can always say, “this is a load of crap. You’re an idiot.”

QUESTION # 7:  Would you rather lose your keys or your cell phone?

ALLIE: I think you would rather lose your keys, because you could just stay home, hang out, and watch a movie on your phone or TV.

BRIAN:  Yeah, but what if I had to go to work or somewhere? I can always go to AT&T and get a new cell phone.

ALLIE:  Wow!  OK.  Because there’s a money tree in the backyard that I didn’t know about.


ALLIE:  Ok.  I would rather lose my cellphone.

BRIAN:  What if there is an emergency?  You couldn’t call?

ALLIE:  I don’t know.  But I don’t like my cellphone very much anyway.  I have all the notifications turned off. I hate when it goes off because it feels like it’s pulling my attention. So, that would be ok.

BRIAN: But everything is on your phone…

ALLIE:  There’s no time limit on this question.  Is it gone for the rest of my life, or I just lost it for an hour?

QUESTION #8:  Would you rather always be gossiped about or never talked about?

ALLIE: I feel like that is my reality.  Everyone talks mean about me.  I don’t know.  I guess gossiped about.  Because my business is people talking about me.

BRIAN:  No one talking…

ALLIE:  You would want no one to ever talk about you?  

BRIAN:  Yeah.

ALLIE:  Wow. OK.

QUESTION #9:  Would you rather be stuck on an island alone or with someone who talks incessantly?

ALLIE:  What do you think my answer would be?

BRIAN: Alone.

ALLIE:  Yeah, alone. And I think yours would be the same.

BRIAN:  Yeah.

QUESTION #10:  Would you rather have more money or more time?

BRIAN:  More time.

ALLIE:  Really?  Yeah, I think I would do the same.  Because you can create more money, but time is what it is.

QUESTION #11:  Would you rather have a cook or a maid?

ALLIE:  Cook.  Oh, we are supposed to answer for each other. Sorry.

BRIAN:  You did. Wait, no.

ALLIE:  So you would pick cook too?

BRIAN:  No, I would pick clean.

ALLIE:  I was thinking, “how can I say this nicely?”  You definitely would pick a maid, because I literally never see you pick up after yourself, unless I sigh loudly.

BRIAN:  Oh, that sucks.

ALLIE:  No, I am just kidding. You’re a great picker-upper.  I would pick cook. I hate cooking.

BRIAN:  I know. That’s why we work good together.

QUESTION #12:  Would you rather hear the good news or the bad news first?

BRIAN: Bad news, just get it out of the way.  Oh, sorry, I answered for myself again.

ALLIE:  Yeah, we are really bad at this.  I would pick the bad news first too.

QUESTION #13:  Would you rather have nosy neighbors or noisy neighbors?

BRIAN:  You would say noisy.  I would say noisy for myself.

ALLIE: Ok, you answered for yourself again.  {laughing}  We are really not good at this.  I would pick noisy for my personality.  However, I am a podcaster.  On that sense, I would pick nosy.  They can be peaking over the fence at me while I record my podcast, but if they are playing loud music and having a party, that really sucks.

QUESTION #14:  Would you rather have lots of good friends or one really best friend?

ALLIE:  I think you would rather have one best friend.

BRIAN:  Yes.

ALLIE:  What about me?

BRIAN:  You, the same.

ALLIE:  Yeah. {laughing}  Some of these are really anticlimactic.

QUESTION # 15:  Would you rather live in Antarctica or the Sahara desert?

ALLIE:   I think you would rather live in Antarctica.

BRIAN:  That’s a hard one.  When I think about it… when it gets hot, I start getting really sick, and just want it to be cold.  But at the same time, the coldest I ever felt was pretty rough.   But I haven’t ever been ‘Antarctica cold’.

ALLIE:  I would say Antarctica.  I think you can always create warmth, but you can’t always find cool.

BRIAN:  Yeah, you can never escape the heat.

ALLIE:  We might be saying Antarctica because we are from SoCal and we don’t really know what freezing is.

QUESTION #16:   Do you believe in Bigfoot?

ALLIE:  Just answer for yourself.

BRIAN:  Yes.

ALLIE:  Ok.  Brian believes in Bigfoot, you guys!  I do not believe in Bigfoot.

BRIAN:  I may have seen him.

ALLIE:  Oh. My. Gosh.

BRIAN:  Or one of them.  There’s probably more than one, especially in Arkansas.

ALLIE:  {laughing}

BRIAN:  That’s where a lot of them live.

ALLIE:  {laughing}  O.K. I feel like we should just answer for ourselves because these questions have taken a different turn.

QUESTION # 17:  What scene from a non-horror movie scared you when you were a kid?

BRIAN:  A non-scary?

ALLIE:  Yeah. Not scary, but it scared you.  I have two.

BRIAN:  You go first, then.

ALLIE:  The first one was, I was always a little bit creeped out with Shere Khan from The Jungle Book.  The tiger.  He is super mean.  I used to think that he was under my bed.  I was really scared of him.

The second one… when I was little my mom was going to turn on Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indian Jones.  She said, “there’s a scary part in this.  I don’t know if you should watch it.”  I was really irritated that she would think I would be so afraid. So, I said, “I have already seen it. I totally know.”  So, she put it on.  It was the part where they have the Ark.  They are not supposed to open it but they do.  And the little angels flow out. Then the guy is like, “oh its so beautiful!”  but then all of the sudden their faces melt off and they turn into demons.

I have never been that scared.  I tried to pretend that I wasn’t scared, but tears were coming down my cheeks.  I didn’t sleep by myself for a year.

BRIAN:  You also said you get scared of Jurassic Park.

ALLIE:  Because of the T-Rex.  Because of the T-Rex, Brian.  

BRIAN:  Wow.  OK.

ALLIE:  You do yours now.

BRIAN:  I remember my parents were watching Meet Joe Black.

ALLIE:  With Brad Pitt?

BRIAN:  I think so.  But I just remember this scene.  I will never forget it.  I never really watched the movie after that.  There is a part where the guy is walking across the street and {claps}  all of the sudden is hit by a car. It was the most dramatic, all of the sudden thing.  I have never seen something like that before.  I just had walked in on the worst moment.  I will never forget that.

ALLIE:   If it was as abrasive as the clap that just sounded in my ear, then it would have scared me too.

BRIAN:  {laughs}

QUESTION #18:  If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

ALLIE:  Ok, I will go.  I would like to know where criminals are, so I could tell the police.  I am so noble.

BRIAN: That counts as a superpower?

ALLIE:  Ok, fine.

BRIAN: I think it’s the basic ones, like being able to fly.

ALLIE:  Ok. Sorry. I would rather be invisible.  {Brian laughs}.  I don’t want to fly. I might get shot by hunters.  Why would you ever want to fly?

BRIAN:  You can fly fast.

ALLIE:  That doesn’t matter. Bullets are fast.

BRIAN:  I still want to fly.  That just seems like the cool thing.

ALLIE:  I want to be invisible so I can creep on people without them knowing.  Not in a like a weird way.  But in a ‘I hear what they are saying about me way’, ‘a fly on the wall’ way.

QUESTION #19:  Describe the worst haircut I’ve ever had.

BRIAN:  You got that one haircut. You called it a really short bob.  Like really short.  {laughing}  I didn’t like it that much. I am sorry.

ALLIE:  Oh my gosh!  Ok.

BRIAN:  But you’re still really beautiful…

ALLIE:  And I get really bloated and puffy when I am pregnant, so that didn’t help my case too.  Ok.  I accept that. It’s fine.

Your worst haircut was when you came out of Supercuts that one time and you looked like a bad version (well, there is really no good version) of Justin Bieber.  And it was really bad.  And you wouldn’t go back in because you were embarrassed that you hated it.  Do you remember that?

BRIAN: Yeah.  I think it looked extra bad because I had long hair for a while.

ALLIE:  He had had really long, wispy hair and it was so cute in a musician-y way, and then he went and got a short haircut and she butchered him.  It was awful.  It just looked weird, wonky, and sideways.  It was bad.  But now your hair is great.  Is my hair good now?

BRIAN:  Of course!

QUESTION #20:  What is one board game that you hate?

BRIAN:  Well, first of all let’s just start with Monopoly.  Secondly, any board game that has to do with strategy, like Risk, you will absolutely refuse to even look at it.

ALLIE:  Because it doesn’t reward skill.

BRIAN:  There is more skill in that than just rolling the dice like on Sorry.

ALLIE: Sorry is the worst!

BRIAN:  Also pop-the-bubble Trouble.

ALLIE:  Also Aggravation.  Aggravation is aptly named because I hate it. It aggravates me.

BRIAN:  That’s the same thing.

ALLIE:  I don’t like to lose.  That’s my thing.  So if I lose a board game, I hate it then.

What’s yours?  You are the opposite.  You like Monopoly. You like all those games that take forever.

BRIAN: I hate the ‘chance’ ones.  It gets frustrating.  That one time we played Sorry and I could never get any of my guys out for 45 minutes.

QUESTION #21:  What would you do if you had one day left to live?

ALLIE:  What do you think I would do?  I’ll say what I think you would do first.

If you had one day left to live, I think that you would go play the drums somewhere in a warehouse by yourself for a while. Then take a flight to a beach somewhere and sit all day until you died, or the world exploded.

BRIAN:  Personally? If I had no family, no kids?

ALLIE:  Yeah. Well, obviously you would spend your time with us.  But if it was just you.  This is almost like the ultimate self-care question.

BRIAN:  Ok.  That’s pretty right on.

ALLIE:  What would I do?

BRIAN:  Oh man…  you would probably want to do Yoga or something calming.  Just feel calm… I don’t know…. That’s hard.  There are so many things.  You would probably choose going to the beach too, and walking with a hot coffee and pastry.

ALLIE:  I just have to say real fast that the last thing I would do if the world’s going to end is Yoga.  There’s no point in the world of doing Yoga when my life is going to explode.  I would literally go get the biggest cheeseburger I could find and a bunch of cats. Just sit with the cats and eat my cheeseburger.  Those are my two favorite things.  Then get a hot coffee and walk the beach.  And probably run into you, fall in love with you, and then explode with you.

{Brian laughs.}

ALLIE:  Cause the world is ending, obviously.

That’s it.  OK.  This was fun!

Happy Valentine’s Day, you guys!
