first of all…let me just get it out there…THANK YOU. come on let’s hug it out. for reals. thank y’all for your comments on my last post… from the bottom of my heart. i read each and every comment and every last one was like a biggo high five.
or a fist bump…with a ‘blow it up’ at the end.
or maybe a shake ‘n bake, baby!
of course there is a slight possibility i’m a little too dramatic and over-enthusiastic but that’s pretty much how i translated them. and to each and every one that commented on the blog, i’m high fiving, fist bumping (and blowing it up), and shakin’ n’ bakin’ back at ya!
sooooo to catch you up….there’s sooooo much to tell. where to start?
i’ll start with the question we get daily. Q: when are new episodes airing?
A: we just wrapped season 3 a few weeks ago.
we filmed for about 5 weeks in october/november and then picked back up in the glorious, temperate climate of january and filmed for about 5 more weeks. it really was glorious. sun-filled days, the warmth on our shoulders as we worked, and after the sun went down, it was really, really awesome. it was pretty much like we were on a beautiful tropical island. ok wait, that was in my self-inflicted 85% dark chocolate overdose dreams. it was freezing. and raining. every. dang. day. which just meant throw on your carharrt, pull on the work gloves, and get to work.
ain’t nobody got time for being cold.
we are really, really proud of this season. there are so many cool transformations and so many pretty amazing collaborations. we forged real bonds. we were inspired. we are forever changed and forever grateful.
consider this your junk gypsies season 3 trailer in words & iphone pics (come on y’all, work with me)…
we team up with our favorite partner-in-crime, miranda lambert, and pull off a super covert heist on her mom for a pretty amazing reveal.
we do an airstream for one of the biggest rock n’ rollers of all time (i still can’t tell ya who…buttttt it does involve a obligatorily necessary trip to the texas beach)…
we partner with one of our original inspirations in the junk world, rachel ashwell for a momentous event…
and….we are forever changed by working with marcus & melanie luttrell. marcus, the american hero, dad, husband, patriot, and all-around die-hard texan. (yes, THE LONE SURVIVOR…THE WAR HERO)…there is SO. MUCH. MORE. to tell.
we transform a 1900’s smokehouse into the coolest bunkhouse ever, give a 1960-something kitchen an entirely new look, give gypsy archie her dream closet and patio, do an epic garage sale for charity, dance the night away in an historic texas dance hall and moreeeeee!!!
and yes, we cried in EVERY single one. as much as i try, i just CANNOT keep it together.
no offiicial air dates yet…but most likely early june. the entire season will air on great american country, and about half of the season will cross over on HGTV! because what’s better than 1 network? 2 networks!
shake n’ bake, y’all! i can’t wait to hear what you think of season 3!!!
