Binge watching ‘Fixer Upper’ on Saturday mornings has become a new favorite in our home. Even my husband watches the show with me!! He and I both get a kick out of Chip’s shenanigans, and I’m practically drooling by the end of each show looking at Jo’s beautiful designs.
Chip and Jo Jo are definitely #marriagegoals, aren’t they? I love how they can be goofy with each other, yet parent their children gracefully and run an enormous business together flawlessly.
I think Joanna and I would be quick friends, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve day dreamed of sitting on their farmhouse porch, sipping sweat tea with her, devouring some cupcakes, and talking about everything home and family. And, in this elaborate day-dream, I see Chip and Adam wrangling the cattle out in the pasture…Adam getting his inner cowboy on. Those 2 goofballs would be knee-deep in mud, while Joanna and I shared stories around her kitchen island with subway tile and greenery in the background.
I guess I’ve thought about this more than I realized! Ha!
This adorable family has graced our television so often, that they feel like close friends. So, it’s no surprise that when I heard this week that this upcoming season of Fixer Upper will be their last, I was sad. Actually, ‘sad’ is an understatement.

So, today I’d love to share with you 5 Things I Learned About Marriage from this amazing, God-fearing couple. What a powerful testimony our marriage can be…
