Saving Alaska with Ana White on HGTV

Have you heard the news? Ana White, homemaker extraordinaire, has a new show on HGTV! It premiered last week with two pilot episodes. I finally got a chance to head over to my mom’s house to watch the recorded shows (we cut the cable cord 18 months ago, so I’ve been sadly lacking in HGTV). I can tell you without a doubt, it was AMAZING! I loved it. It’s probably my favorite new show on tv. I had the great pleasure of meeting Ana on her book tour a couple of years ago, and can say that she truly is that genuine and enjoyable in person. It’s been so much fun to work with her on plans for the past few years, as well as build the ones she’s worked on with others!


But the best part? I love how involved her family is with the show. As a mom of a toddler and baby myself, it’s incredibly refrishing, if not jaw-droppingly inspiring, to see her wear her son in a baby carrier and tote him around on the job site. It’s such a strong message for women, to not only see a woman working with power tools and building amazing furniture and rooms, but to also see a mom doing all these things with young children in tow. I just loved that! It goes to show that the work/life balance can truly exist for the modern woman. Even one wielding a hammer!



So if you’re looking for a great new show to watch, tune in to Saving Alaska. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they network picks up a full season and more episodes will be aired soon!

  1. Can I just say Brooke that now I am even more jelly of you! We don’t get HGTV & so you just can’t see it over here. I feel like the kid at the party who missed out on a lolly bag (sorry candy bag

    1. I hope that soon they’ll show them online! Then it will be much easier to watch than sneaking up to my mom’s house all the time 🙂

  2. Sounds all kinds of awesome! BUT I am like you, and in the no cable boat…
    So I’ll have to keep it in mind for those rare opportunities where I end up with a TV in front of me and am at once mesmerized. Ooh. Shiny power tools! 🙂

  3. Oh I am soooooo excited!!! I love Ana White. I wish I could’ve met her. She needs to visit South FL. When is the show on? I watch HGTV all.the.time. I will definitely be recording it. Thank you! 🙂

  4. My mom hooked us up with satellite TV – I need to catch this show! The doing things with baby motivation is much needed. 😉

  5. I think what I like best about Ana White is that she’s just so…capable. She has natural confidence in herself and her abilities, and really gets to work without a second thought. I can’t wait to see her show!
