It's been a little over a week since we ended our epic journey of visiting readers, promoting our new book, handing out shirts, and saving the country one room at a time.We had so much fun sharing our favorite moments in real time on social media, and we wanted to make sure our readers got the full experience. Check out our final days on the road—and all our favorite moments from the entire trip!

You can see all the photos by checking out hashtags #makeoveramerica #poweredbywayfair #completehappyhome on Instagram (and Facebook, and Twitter). We hope you had as much fun following along as we did sharing!

Day 17 - Van Horn, TX - Yesterday we lost Westy..... It was just outside Marfa after our Prada moment that the electrics died, the engine failed and I looked outside to see a massive overheating moment coming out the back of the Van. Westy drifted over to the side of the road and $800 and 4 hours later we arrived in El Paso in the cab of an old flat bed towtruck (which - I learned - only the night before had towed Willie Nelsons car as he'd also broken down outside of Van Horn. Bermuda Triangle??) Did this stop us? NO!! While Westy is staying behind to get repaired, we've rented a white Ford passenger van and we sped on to Tucson last night to meet our next reader visit with Lauren Mason #makeoveramerica #completehappyhome #poweredbywayfair
