Chip admits he can get a "little pompous," but Joanna always has his back (even when he's taking a fashion risk). "He competes with the view," Joanna wrote on this sceneic shot. "Man bun, tube socks, adult onesie and all... He still looks mighty fine to me."

When They Were An Actual Dream Team

“Somehow the cards we're dealt and Jo and I love to work together,” Chip told PEOPLE in October. “We love to be together, but we joke to some of our friends that if we hadn’t gotten so lucky we probably would have killed each other by now.”

Joanna added, “We’re passionate about what we do, we love the business of home and we really like each other.”

One, two, three, awwwww.

When They Admitted Things Aren't Always as Perfect as They Seem

“Every now and then there are times when we notice we’re getting off track and have to regroup,” Chip told PEOPLE. “But it’s like everything we care about, everything that’s important to us — we know it’s going to require work.”

He added, “Jo and I both made a commitment pretty early on that the two of us are the most important variable,” says Chip. “If we can figure out how to be right as a couple, then obviously we a have a lot better opportunity to be right for our kids.”

“Chip feelin’ all Tom Cruise in his white T-Shirt singing ‘Take My Breath Away,’” Joanna wrote on this video of Chip showing off some pretty slick moves (her nonstop giggles make us think she’s OK with it). “This is what happens when you film in the Texas heat all day every day.”

Although the couple is grateful for their tenure on HGTV, Chip and Joanna are looking forward to focusing on their family. “Our beautiful children are growing up so quickly,” Joanna said in a video on their website. “I think the idea that we get to kind of step back and get a fresh vision, get some rest, but also just hunker down with our kiddos.”

But Chip promised this won’t be the least we’ll see of the famous fixer uppers. “We believe in our hearts that we’re going to see you again right around the corner,” he added.
