Our Own TV Show

Want in on a long time secret?

Almost two years ago {WHERE does the time go?!} we were approached by a company for a TV show. We had been approached multiple times before, and started and stopped the process a bunch. This time was different though because we had made it through initial cuts and they asked us to submit a sizzle deal.

We had a production company come out and film us for 12 hours at one of our flips. It was a really interesting experience. It gave me a whole lot more appreciation for those who do shows. That day was so fun but also SO draining, and I couldn’t imagine doing it over and over again to get an episode filmed!

Ultimately HGTV execs decided against using us. For a split second I was bummed, but ultimately I knew that it wasn’t a right fit for us. It would have taken up SO much of our time, and we are already super busy- so I don’t know what would have had to ‘give’ in order for it to happen.

But, we are finally able to share the Sizzle reel that was made. Its pretty fun being able to look back on this!

 

I guess we will just have to keep on watching people make magic on TV, from our comfy couches- in PJs…and I am justttt fine with that:)

 To see the home all completed- go HERE!

Orchid Flip Reveal!

Our Orchid flip is done! And let me just say, this one is a beauty {but I am TOTALLY biased and think all of them are}!

I am going to go in to more detail and do tons of Before and Afters later, but for now, i’ll show a few:)

That is what we started with. We KNEW we loved the lines of the home right away, but it obviously needed a ton of TLC. I can’t tell you how many times we had neighbors come up to us during the remodel and say how thankful they were that it was getting fixed up. Apparently people don’t like living next to homes that are neglected and overgrown. Who would’ve thought?! 😉

This is what you used to see when you walked in the front door:

And now, well now its this:

Just a little different eh?

We moved a lot of walls in this home and it made all the difference. And the kitchen? Well that one is not even recognizable:

Thankfully now its looking like this:

I don’t know whats my favorite thing about it even. The counters? YES! The Moen pot-filler and faucet? YES! The black cabinets? YES! All of it man. I mean, how could someone not just smile when cooking, and filling a pot from a beautiful filler thats mounted to an insane slab of beauty?!

A sweet little spot in this home is the office off of the main living space. Keep that barndoor open if you want to be in the mix with everyone, or shut it to hammer out some work. Either way though, you won’t feel closed in because of the French Doors to the backyard, and the glass windows above. This home is NOT lacking on natural light! Hallelujah.

The Master bedroom is spacious, light, and with a killer bathroom and closet. The vanity in the Master bath is straight up drool worthy. Custom done, super midcentury modern, and always timeless.

The other bedrooms and bathroom got some serious TLC as well. Just look at what we were dealing with initially:

And now:

Even the exterior in the front AND back got facelifts. Because we all know you don’t want to have great curb appeal in the front and then be embarrassed by the back, right?

To now:

I’ll be back soon with all the details, sources, and even more Before and Afters. You guys, Jeremy is so dang talented. I think a lot of y’all think that these flips are as much me as they are Jeremy, when in reality it is like 98% him, 2% me. No exaggeration. He has the vision. The meticulous attention to detail. The beautiful brain and design eye. The heart to make it a HOME not just a pretty house. He is the best of the best, and I am so blessed by him!

Yes, We Are Still Flipping:)

And for that matter, yes we are still alive over here! Haha. But I have had so many of you sweet friends ask if we are still flipping homes, and the big ol answer is a strong YES! We just sold off one home last month, and are almost finished with this beauty! This is the first home we have ever … Read More →

You are dearly loved

I don't know how your morning started out, but mine was rough. We had been up for approximately two hours and Winston had already been sent to his room five times. Yes, you read that right, FIVE times. Tuesdays are always the most chaotic morning of the week. And it seems that no matter how much I … Read More →

Transitioning to Three Kids

That picture right there is what I would love to portray our transition to three has been like, when in reality- this one below is probably more appropriate: Haha, but really, I just wanted to pop in and let y'all know we are alive and well, but just crazy. No one told me that going to three … Read More →

Georgia Mae’s Birth Video

My sweetest friend Melissa created a birth video of our little lady Georgia's entrance in to this world. She captured it all, and thankfully didn't include any of the scenes where I was literally twerking because I was in so much pain. She was amazing also because she came back the next morning and … Read More →

Royal Palm Flip Kitchen

You see that beauty up there? Well this is what it started as: We knew immediately that it had to go. We played around with the idea of actually trying to salvage the cabinets because they were actually pretty great, but in the end we just didn't have enough of them to make it work. We … Read More →

Flip update

I haven't posted too much on the current flip of ours, but it's not because it's not amazing. This home and it's kitchen just might be one of my favorites to date! This home was full to the brim with original character. And thankfully we were able to leave a lot of that in place, while still … Read More →
