Whether it’s something we’re buying, something we did, or how our lives are ever-changing, we’re bringing you along for the journey with us!
Shane bought a house for the very first time.
Nothing is stopping Shane these days, while he may have just earned his college diploma last year and started working full time at Hip, he’s already making even bigger moves.
Welcome to homeownership, Shane! 🎉
And he already jetted off to Las Vegas to celebrate!
It sure didn’t take Shane long to escape all of the new home projects because he jetted off to Las Vegas shortly after he closed. 😂 Man, I want that guy’s job. 😏 In all seriousness, we can’t wait to hear about all of his wild adventures!
Hip Tip: Speaking of dreamy jobs, have you seen our current career opportunities at Hip because we’re hiring!
Stetson showed off his nearly complete arm sleeve.
Turns out there’s a reason other than snow Stetson’s been hiding his muscles. Check out his awesome new arm sleeve that’s about 98% complete! 🤩 They all have significant meanings which he also shared with us:
“From the bottom up: There will be 3 crosses I have one of my favorite verses. Luke 23:43 ‘Truly I tell you. Today you will be with me in Paradise.’ Which Jesus told one of the thieves that was on the cross next to him after the thief asked for forgiveness and said ‘Jesus, remember me, when you come into your kingdom’
Followed by a palm tree on the other side of my arm: paradise, victory are meanings of that.
Doves I dedicated to myself and my mom ascending to heaven.
Roman numerals: XCI (91) birth year.
Rose: eternal love
Lion: my uncle had the lion, but also to me represent strength, power, Lion of Judah (Jesus Christ). On top of the lion are some olive leaves which represent peace.”
Cue the tears. 😭 We’re loving this new side of Stetson, to say the least.
Rachel got married and showed off her perfect day.
For months we heard about Rachel’s special day, saw so many of the stunning details as they planned the big event, and it FINALLY arrived! Every detail and picture she shared was total perfection and we couldn’t be happier for her and her new hubby!
Oh, and they came back from their honeymoon with a new puppy. 😍
I mean, no big deal, right?! 😂 On the last day of their honeymoon, Rachel and her hubby, scooped up this little sweetie. He may be giving them a run for their money with potty training but he sure is worth it! 😍
Welcome to the Hip fam, Loki! 🐶
Lina and her husband wrapped up their stunning home projects.
Could their new half bath have turned out any more beautiful?! 😍 Lina said her husband did all of the molding work (which he also carried throughout the downstairs) and their gorgeous new vanity was a local online returns auction score! So although this reno project looks super high-end, it was very Hip2Save! 👏🏻
Plus, she already owned the Anthropologie dupe mirror which we think complements her new bathroom even more now! 🤩 And just because everyone loves a great before and after…let’s take a minute to appreciate this incredible transformation. 🙌🏻
They also completed their kitchen renovation!
After adding some new gold hardware, Lina’s kitchen renovation is finally complete too! In case you missed what our team bought on Amazon last month, Lina also shared where you can find her dreamy new sink and gold faucet.
New floors, kitchen, bathroom, and paint…we can’t wait to see her next project! 🤩
Hip Tip: In the meantime, check out the delicious recipes Lina’s whipping up in her new kitchen.
I finally got my roman shades clearance find hung in my boys’ room.
My Bed Bath and Beyond store recently closed and I was lucky enough to score these navy blackout roman shades on huge clearance for my boy’s room. I couldn’t believe out of the few random shades left that they had exactly the sizes I needed! 😱
After a little scare that they wouldn’t fit with the depth of our window case, my handy guy was able to still make them work making this $32 find my favorite deal I’ve scored all year! 🤩
I’m so happy with these shades and would definitely be buying more if I needed them. Even at the regular price, I think they’re worth every penny and best of all my boys love them too!
Hip Tip: Check to see if your Bed Bath and Beyond location is one of the 37 stores currently having liquidation sales.
Kaitlyn caught a show on Broadway before its last debut.
Kaitlyn took full advantage of living in New York City and caught one of the very last Aladdin Broadway shows with her boyfriend. The last time she saw this show was for her 16th birthday, but she said it was even better this time around.
Eden went to the Harry Potter museum.
Meanwhile, in Philly, Eden got to make her dreams come true at the Franklin Institute by witnessing the Harry Potter museum first hand. While she didn’t snap a ton of photos, any big Harry Potter fan understands why she just wanted to soak it all in. 🤗
Ani spent the entire weekend on the soccer field.
Any sports parent knows how weekends can get consumed with practices, games, tournaments, and lots of driving. However, this weekend was worth every minute since her son’s team won the tournament for their age group! Woohoo! Congrats, boys! ⚽️🥇
Poor Gary has had a rough few weeks.
Only Gary could look this put together while recovering. 😅 Turns out the wild man ate a dryer sheet, socks, part of his crate mat, and part of a slipper while Angela wasn’t home. 😫
Unfortunately, it was far way too much for him to pass on his own and thankfully, Angela acted quickly. After some pup surgery to remove all foreign objects, Gary was headed back in the right direction. Meanwhile, Angela got to have fun dressing him up in kids’ clothes to keep his stitches concealed. (Kids pajamas deals to the rescue!) 😂🧇
All joking aside, we were pretty worried for Gary as he definitely went through a rough couple of weeks. However, I certainly don’t want to end our monthly team post on a bad note, so the good news is that Gary is on the mend and already back to his wild self! 🙏🏻
We can only hope from here on out he’ll only eat a chill pill next time. 😉
Well, Hip2Savers, on that note, we’re going to get back to bringing you all the hippest deals on the internet!
We’re looking forward to even brighter days ahead (literally – thanks Daylight Savings!). Keep an eye out in April with some more fresh Hip news! 🌷
