In her appearance on the Tonight Show with host Jimmy Fallon, Reese Witherspoon revealed her adoration for Fixer Upper, starring the much-loved couple Joanna and Chip Gaines. Seriously, we’re blushing a little.

As if we didn’t love Witherspoon enough already, right? Not only did she recently uncover her love for the HGTV hit, she told Jimmy Fallon she wants her own show on HGTV that they would call Dirty River Flippers.

Reese Witherspoon a fan of HGTV? We’re all in for that. We don’t doubt she can add home improvement to her list of achievements. Speaking of, we're loving her newest Draper James x Crate & Barrel fall collection and her recently-launched book, Whiskey in a Teacup.

But, the best part of her appearance on the show might just have been her dumbfounded reaction when Fallon revealed he wasn't familiar with Fixer Upper.

She enthusiastically explained to him why she loves the show so much, and that “If you’ve maybe had a rough Saturday night and just really need to chill out on Sunday, it’s like the perfect television,” she exclaimed. I mean, we agree.

Witherspoon joked about she and her husband lacking any home improvement design or building skills.

“So, we’re just gonna take houses that have a view of a dirty river, and just imagine what it would be like if it was better,” she explained to Fallon.

We can figure out the details later. We love you too, Reese.
