This house!!!

If you love Chip and Joanna Gaines as much as we do, seeing glimpses of their stunning farmhouse on HGTV's Fixer Upper, has most likely left you wanting more. Their 1,700-square-foot Victorian home sits on 40 beautiful acres in Crawford, Texas, a suburb of Waco. When the couple isn't busy transforming fixer uppers for clients or working on exciting new projects for their business, this is the haven they call their own.:


How cute is this?

Add a festive touch to the family room or entryway with a set of custom letters, filled with felt flowers or succulents in the colors of your choice. #etsyfinds:

Supe festive and can we talk Barbie!!! Those prompts are perfect!!! I have liked Leona Lewis since Simon Cowell discovered her and that is one of my favorite Christmas songs.

    OMG at Cara’s post. I totally just cried at work reading it. Something that I’ve needed to read for awhile.

    Also, let’s talk about how important ice cream is…and maybe one day, ONE DAY, we’ll remember to take a selfie — I mean, how can we even call ourselves bloggers?!?1

    I feel like I identify with every one of those funnies! Especially when you see somebody that ordered after you get their item before you. I think it’s the worst when it’s at Starbucks because it’s like “hello, you’re supposed to put the cups in order!”

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots December 11, 2015 at 9:13 am

    Whenever I do the shred I have to mute it and put on music bc I can’t stand to listen to Jillian blabber the whole time!

  • Reply Heather December 11, 2015 at 9:31 am

    Haha, marathon training on the netflix!! I asked my mom if my Barbies were easily accessible apparently not so IDK if i’ll be participating this year. I have a Christmas bear but he’s not as fun because I don’t have clothes for him. womp womp. I do think that milkshake The Yard would be AWESOME!! Have a great weekend, N!!

    Oh I love all those funnies. I haven’t heard that song before. It’s so fantastic. Thanks for sharing it.

  • Reply Cara December 11, 2015 at 10:01 am

    Thank you so much for sharing my post, Nadine! I really appreciate it! 🙂 That house is gorgeous! I’ve always wanted one with a wrap around porch like that, so pretty!

    That shopping gif… that is totally me … the price of things blow me away. I’m drawn to the most expensive things in stores apparently too 🙂

    That slow cooker recipe looks pretty awesome, I love anything with peanut sauce! I love it when I wake up and realize it’s way before my alarm goes off and I am sure that is exactly how I look!!! Have a great weekend Nadine!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer December 11, 2015 at 12:54 pm

    I want to try that recipe this weekend! i am in a major cooking rut. Jillian is my go-to for cardio- I’ve done the shred a couple of times now and really love it! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

    Um, spying on neighbors yelling? YES PLEASE.

    I’m sorry I’m a terrible co-host this year. I haven’t done a damn thing but you’re definitely keeping it going.

  • Reply Kelli December 11, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    I miss just calling my sister, now I have to make sure it’s not the middle of the night before I text her.

    The last time my neighbors got in a fight I took my ass right out on the porch and watched, I don’t want to be involved but I’m not ashamed to enjoy free entertainment.

  • Reply Erin of TexErin-in-SydneyLand December 11, 2015 at 6:30 pm

    That Leona Lewis is quite a pretty and talented girl, ain’t she? I love that song. I also like U2’s version and Anberlin’s version.

  • Reply Candace December 11, 2015 at 6:32 pm

    hahahaha the Jillian comment!! I just barely started doing those workouts, too!! Her comments in the video make me laugh cause some of them are SO cheesy!!! And Leona Lewis has such a gorgeous voice, I LOVE her covering that song!!! Happy Friday!!

    Can you just come decorate House for me when it’s finished please? I think you’ll be way better at this and then everything won’t be like a rainbow vomited all over my entire house.
