Today marks the final episode of the beloved HGTV show “Fixer Upper” and Joanna Gaines opened up about the myriad of emotions she’s feeling as it comes to an end. She also revealed all that’s coming next.
“This season of life has been rewarding, challenging, unbelievably fast and furious and nearly everything in between,” Joanna shared on her blog. “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.”
The Christian couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, first shocked the world in September 2017 by announcing that they were ending the popular “Fixer Upper” series after their fifth season this year.
Along with being successful home renovation gurus and reality TV stars, the Gaineses own Magnolia Homes, a remodeling and design business in Waco, Texas. They also have a retail shop called Magnolia Market at the Silos (which draws up to 40,000 visitors a week), as well as paint, rug, wallpaper and furniture lines, a real estate company, a quarterly magazine, a luxury vacation rental, and now a restaurant.
On the blog, Joanna went on to reveal that their restaurant, Magnolia Table, is “finally up and running.”
“The whole project was a huge undertaking, and we are so happy that it is officially open! If you come visit the restaurant, some of Chip’s favorites are the Farm Eggs Benedict, tater tots, the bacon and eggs appetizer and of course Chip’s Ham Sandwich. I am currently craving the pancakes, chicken salad sandwich, lavender latte and the Gaines Bros Burger with the jalapeño drip jam. My stomach is growling as I type this!”
The restaurant used to be an iconic Waco, Texas, landmark, an old Elite Cafe that was in business for nearly 100 years before shutting down in 2016.
Joanna disclosed that she also finished her cookbook, Magnolia Table, which will be out April 24. She said she is working on a design book as well to help others learn the art of home designing.
Furthermore, the couple will continue to fix homes with their company Magnolia Design and Construction, as they have been for over 15 years now.
At the top of the year, the beloved husband and wife duo announced that they were expecting their fifth child. They are already parents to Drake, Ella Rose, Duke and Emmie Kay.
