#2,479 Teamwork.

Home Town season 2 would be impossible without these folks right here: Georgia and Sarah spent their morning down on the floor prepping a project for me to do on camera since bending down is getting harder and harder with my growing belly. They never complain, they only laugh and tell stories that make me laugh with them. Tim, our beloved camera man gives everyone a big hug first thing every morning and last thing when we wrap, always asking how I’m feeling. Patrick, our director, makes up crazy characters and voices that make me laugh when I’m so tired […]

#2,471 A Slow Day on Set.

Now that I’m in the third trimester, our producers have decided it’s time for me to take a break from construction scenes for the most part from here on out. My call time was supposed to be 10 am so I could rest and come in later for a scene requiring no physical work, but Ben’s call time was 7, and we are happiest stuck together like peanut butter and jelly, and so I went along with him and got to just be the TV star’s wife for the day, enjoying the making of it all from behind the scenes.

#2,460 Field Trip.

After a morning deep in the country filming a new episode: We filmed at Landrum’s Country, a kind of little Dollywood here in Laurel I’ve been visiting since I was born, and it tickled me to share the experience with our whole production family. Meanwhile, I'm dizzy and about to throw up. #mysteryhouse #hgtvhometownfieldtrip A post shared by Erin Napier (@erinapier) on Oct 26, 2017 at 10:54am PDT

#2,454 Makeshift Daylight.

I’m under the gun to finish the last 3 house portraits of season 2, but when I come home at 6 and the daylight is gone, I have to wait until the sun is out to mix colors accurately and finish my paintings. Tonight while I was in the bathtub, Ben made me a makeshift space in the kitchen with a daylight bulb and a lamp on the counter, all my supplies lined up and ready because he knows how much it stresses me out to procrastinate. And I’ll be dadgum if it didn’t turn out just perfect.

#2,453 Work Party.

Today after we wrapped, our DP, Tim, invited everyone over to his house for a bowl of chili around his new fire pit. It’s so rare that we see our work family away from work since we normally go home, shower and fall into bed after filming, but tonight with a nip in the air and the sky so clear you could count every star, I felt thankful to be at a “work” party like ours.

#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.
