16 Things You Didn’t Know About Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines – Anyone else obsessed with Chip and Joanna? We refer to them by their first names in our house. I’m actually kind of in love with Chip, mostly because he reminds me so much of Mal. And, of course, I LOVE their decorating style. It’s exactly what I want in my forever home.


Big Spring Sale at Athleta – Lots of markdowns on great gear! Woohoo!

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread – FINALLY! A gluten-free bread that actually tastes good. Hallelujah! Mal found this brand at Whole Foods and, wow, it’s good. (He bought the 7-Grain.) He made me a sandwich with it the other day, and I actually thought it was regular, gluten-filled bread. It’s THAT good.

  1. Such a fun post! I love reading your posts. I also love Fixer Upper – my mom and I are obsessed – we even get my dad in on watching. There are lots of fun links today that I will definitely go back and look through. I barely sweat working out – which is frustrating when I work really hard it doesn’t always look like I have – ha!

  2. The wine ice cream is actually really good! It’s made sort of locally to where I live in Northern Ny. They ship on dry ice, you should try it!

  3. Tina – try the Canyon Ranch Gluten Free cinnamon raisin bread – it’s awesome and would make killer cinna-raisin French toast!

  4. Love these links. Ummm wine ice cream!? It’s like killing two birds with one stone! And when I run or spin I’m like an 8.5 out of 10 in sweatiness. But lifting I’m at likeeee a 6.5/7. Hope you have a great long weekend!

  5. I sweat like crazy! Reminds me of that part in Sandlot when Ham says he’s “baking like a toasted cheese”. That’s what I feel like when I workout. My face also gets bright red, so that certainly adds to my attractive look. But I don’t care as long as I get a good workout!

  6. I love Chip and Joanna, I want to move to Waco, TX just to be on their show. I can’t wait to try the Canyon Bakehouse Bread, thanks for sharing!

  7. I’ve had the wine ice cream before. It’s… interesting. I’m not really a “fruity” type ice cream girl, though. I think I’d rather have a glass of wine with some cookie dough swirl πŸ™‚
    I am a horrifically sweaty runner, and that article was really interesting! It used to be so bad that I’d just think about running, and start sweating — seriously! I also sweat when I’m sleeping, no matter the temperature of the room. My husband is one lucky guy.

  8. I LOVE Fixer Upper! I’m secretly hoping we get stationed in Texas next so we can enter to have Chip and Joanna redo a house for us. I love their style. They haven’t done anything I don’t love!

  9. I would want to get a deep tissue massage for neck, shoulders and back because I sit at a desk 39 hrs a week. I want to watch Fixer Upper now have never seen it! I’m probably a 2-3 on the sweaty scale, I’ve always been surprised I don’t sweat more…


  10. I would love to try that wine infused ice cream. I want to get it for our girls’ nights when we watch The Bachelorette! That would be such a fun addition. Have a great weekend!

  11. Chip and Joanna are close friends of a good friend of mine and apparently they are just as lovely in real life. She said seeing them on TV is uncanny because they really are just like that.

  12. Great list, thanks. Alcohol infused ice cream sounds great as long as it’s vegan too. πŸ™‚ I occasionally watch Fixer Upper, great inspiration. And I’m a huge sweater, especially since getting into running!

  13. As someone who HAS to eat gluten-free bread, it makes me cringe when people who don’t need it eat it. I just want people to enjoy real bread like I wish I could! What’s your reason for eating gf bread but still eating gluten from other sources? Previously you said you liked the taste better but this post seems to say otherwise. Absolutely no judgement, just extremely curious! πŸ™‚

  14. I am only a 4 or 5 on the sweatiness scale; it totally depends on what I’m doing. And I don’t know about wine ice cream…. I gave tried beer flavored ice cream and did not like it AT ALL. Maybe wine would be better?

  15. I like wine and I like ice cream, but not sure if I want to combine the two…would need a taste test!!

    Love Fixer Upper and really every HGTV program, good stuff!

    I’m a sweater, always need a towel at the gym, especially at spin!

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  16. Canyon River Bakehouse is the best! There are other flavors but multigrain definitely wins in my book. You can even keep it in the freezer- put in the toaster and it is delicious πŸ™‚

  17. I LOVE chip and Joanna. We talk about them in our home too, as if they are our best friends, we are major creepsters. My husband and I just purchased a fixer upper of our own and so I need to channel my inner JoJo.

  18. I love these posts – you always find such a good array of links! I live like a mile or so away from Canyon Bakehouse and it always smells so good when I ride my bike by there – I haven’t had their bread though, but might have to give it a try soon. I am also a big fan of Fixer Upper — their style is awesome!
