Fixer Upper

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

I have a small obsession. And by small I mean huge. I'm not a big TV person, mostly because I spend my nights blogging, but when it's Friday night and there is no blogging to be done I nestle down into my couch in my oldest T shirt (sans bra of course!) and oogle over those homes in Waco, Texas. Yup. I'm 100% obsessed with Fixer Upper and all things Chip and Joanna Gaines.

Joanna's style is right up my alley and if I could live in a farm house I so would! I love the way she makes things so open, bright, and functional. We could be best friends I'm sure. All I have to do is move to Waco of course. ;)

But because I can't move to Waco, or shop every Tuesday at Magnolia Farms, I asked my parents for a sign that I spotted in Joanna's home. They so conveniently sell many of the products that they show in their episodes in their online store. It says, "As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." It was a pricey little guy but I LOVE it!

The spot where I chose to put the sign is right when you walk in the front door, which I like. The only thing is that I have a lot of "square" things in the room. Over time I hope to add some more ovals/circles to balance it out. And this is probably ridiculous but I want to wrap the board games in craft paper so they don't stick out like a sore thumb. I know...super OCD of me. I've also been meaning to enlarge a family photo and replace the engagement photo of us. It's time. :)

And if you're not sure just what show I'm talking about then get your Tivo out and hit record! You won't be sorry. Or maybe you will because now you have one more thing you're obsessed over. ;)

PS I'm also drooling over this little number for my kitchen. So cute!


  1. Love that sign. I'm so glad I'm not the only one obsessing over all things Chip and Joanna. If only I had her talent!

  2. I LOVE FIXER UPPER! I am kind of keeping that whole show in mind as we decorate this house! I do think I will be ordering a metal sign or two. Lol

  3. I love your living room! And the sign is great too.

  4. That show is so inspiring! I didn't even know that they had a STORE! I'm going to go crazy in there. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

  5. Yes, love that show (and Joanna and her style especially). The sign looks great on your wall!! I also ordered it and am (im)patiently waiting for it..!! :)

  6. Oh I love their show and home too! But the beginning drives me nuts because of the car seat buckles. lol. Talk about OCD. What a lovely sign and gallery wall!
