channeling chip and jojo - taking on a big project.

On Tuesday nights, Todd and I have a couch date with our BFF's Chip and Jojo.  Those of you newbies that just jumped on board the HGTV "Fixer Upper" bandwagon this season - they were ours first! ;)  We have been fans of the delightful and adorable Chip and Joanna Gaines for a long time.  I've followed her Magnolia Mom blog for several years and have known a tv show was in the works long before it finally made it to air.  We adore them, we want to be them, can we please work for them?
It's a regular dialogue that we say "Chip and Jojo are coming over tonight!". Our BFF's.

We are in a little bit of a Tuesday night withdrawl right now as season 2 has ended.
And yes, while they were our friends first people, we will happily share.  {I should probably disclaimer this by saying we don't actually know them, but we want too.}  If you haven't introduced Fixer Upper into your life, well you should.

Truly every single episode is amazing and you would be missing out if you didn't catch them all, but here are a couple of our fav's.
The $10,000 almost tear-down
The Tire Swing House

We have added new words to our vocabulary like "shiplap", have fallen in love with mega islands, and I'm determined to get a chunky wood beam on the ceiling somewhere in this house!

There have been a few projects in the works around here that are 95% complete, but I don't like to post about them until they are all done!  Including, closet renovations (a gorgeous custom closet for me!), a little tikes playhouse makeover and some little crafts here and there.
BUT, we are about to embark on a very big project soon - a kitchen remodel!  White cabinets, subway tile, open shelving, rustic hardware on the way!!!  So excited - but it will be a time-consuming adventure.  We are busily planning everything out right now and timing our project to align with grandparents who will be in town and available to keep our girls busy so both Todd and I can work.
We will document the journey here.

In the meantime, I gave our front door a little upgrade with a new wreath.
Spring calls for a few new and fresh things.

I used a twig wreath that I already had.  (It had a few simple flowers on it - it needed an upgrade.)
I found all of the blossoms at JoAnn's for 70% off, and the chevron burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby for 50% off.  Some people may use floral wire, hot glue works just fine for me.

- 1 large twig wreath
- 11 large blossoms (mine is actually 6 large green blossoms and 10 small white blossoms)
- wide burlap ribbon
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
- scissors
