The couple that put WACO, Texas on the tourist attraction map with their Magnolia brand and Silos, is saying goodbye to the show that brought them into our homes.
I find myself really bummed to see Chip and Joanna's exit from HGTV's Fixer Upper tonight. Partly because I love their silly back-and-forth, their kiddos, their farmhouse, the shiplap- but also because we're about to start a remodel and I really wanted my weekly fix of Chip and Jo along the way!
But Chip has a marathon to run, Jo's having a baby soon, her new cookbook is out this month, they just opened their restaurant...they're busy! But we'll always have facebook. And instagram. And reruns. And Target.
Read Jo's goodbye below:
Tonight marks the final episode of Fixer Upper — the series finale. This season of life has been rewarding, challenging, unbelievably fast and furious and nearly everything in between. Back in September when Chip and I posted the blog announcing that this season would be our last, it still seemed so far away. At the time, we were knee-deep in the restaurant renovation, we had filming left to wrap up, and we were working toward finishing up several projects. April felt like it was forever away, but somehow it snuck up on us. Time is funny like that, the days sometimes seem long, but the weeks, months and even years fly past us when we least expect it.
I really loved this final Fixer Upper season because there was such a variety of styles and projects that really kept us on our toes. We did everything from an old barn out in the country to a downtown loft apartment. We also got to do some pretty unique projects like my garden house, a new build for clients, our restaurant, and an ADA compliant house for two amazing boys and their family that we met through the Tim Tebow Foundation. Oh, and of course tonight’s episode, where we do a renovation for a Rockstar! You can read a recap of all the homes from this season and see photos of all the designs up on our website under the tab “Show”. We are grateful to all the families who joined in on this journey with us over the past five years—what an honor to be a part of their stories. (CONTINUED)
