#2,454 The New Bathroom.

The master bathroom renovation has been a journey to say the least. Demo began on June 28 and the bathroom interior was complete yesterday, October 9, when the shower glass was installed, though that hasn’t stopped us from loving using it since the day the plumbing fixtures went in a couple weeks ago. We’ve wanted a separate tub and walk-in shower for so long, I guess since Ben destroyed his ankle way back in 2010 when he realized how tricky it is getting in a tub when you’re his size and injured. It’s going to be something we’re glad we did […]

#2,453 Block 2.

And somehow, we’re halfway through season 2 and today was the first day of shooting the second block of houses. We have 2 real estate days in the bag, which means only 3 more to go! We’re picking up steam now!

#2,448 Playing Christmas.

Today we pretended it was Christmas for this year’s promos, and it’s amazing how hearing Judy Garland and hearing a fire snapping in the fireplace can trick you into feeling Christmas spirit! Sadly, I’ve taken a bad cold. But Big knows just the medicine I needed:

#2,417 Dressing House #2.

Tomorrow’s reveal is for a couple of dear friends and it was a joy to spend today padding around their house, dressing the dinner table, hanging the artwork, lovingly placing little surprises in every nook and cranny. Surprises like Candy the Crane. Whom Blake decided loves Jesus but still believes in ghosts. And I cackled.

#2,391 Filming with Mama.

Mama and I got to film the most fun scene yet of season 2, over her sewing machine, where we laughed until we actually cried–even the crew. When the scene wrapped with a gorgeous custom pillow to show for it, the cameras went off and Elvis came on (because, of course, never forget) and she pulled out a huge spread of sandwich trays and fruit and chips and dips and cupcakes and fed all the boys who kept hugging her and making me feel grateful for a team who loves our people and for a mama who loves them back.

#2,385 Support System.

We worked so hard this week, I can barely hold my eyes open to write this sentence. Today I’m grateful for our friends at the shops all over Laurel who have opened their doors and their inventories to our little production–places like Lott Furniture where Mal and I got to take a little adventure this afternoon. I’m also thankful for the silly boys I spend my days with at work and floor fans that feel good when they poof out your shirt on a really hot day. And mamas who hem your new dress at 8 pm on a Thursday. […]

#2,384 Storm Watch.

We were rushing to wrap filming tonight at 7:00 when our phones lit up with warnings a severe storm was 15 minutes away. Cameras that cost more than some houses in Laurel aren’t waterproof so it’s serious business when you’ve got one chance to get the scene. As soon as we finished, we hopped in the car and drove home to beat the rain and Ben waited for it on the porch, relishing the cool breeze that came first. We sat on the swing when it started to pour down and I laid my head on his big heavy chest, […]

#2,383 DIY Day.

Mallorie and I got together at 8:00 this morning to start the first DIY projects of season 2, and neither rain nor mosquitoes could stop us.  I’m thankful that our framily gets to be such an integral part of all the work we do. How lucky are we to have such talented friends?
