I love watching HGTV. My favorite shows are House Hunters and Property Virgins. I saw a commercial for it and they said that those types of shows worked because people are voyeurs and want to see inside other people's homes and I agree. But it's so crazy to see how some people react to some houses and then fall in love with others. I guess that's the good thing about homes is that there are so many different things for so many different people. It also makes me want to get a Lowe's and/or Home Depot card, max them out and keep them in business! We of course aren't doing that but it makes me want to! The funniest thing I've noticed in the last few days of watching copious amounts of House Hunters is that there is a ridiculous amount of pink in bathrooms! I remember when we were looking for homes a few years ago and there was one house that we looked at and the countertops were bubble gum pink! It was so crazy. I thought it was a fluke but apparently pink was a favorite of designers and builders in the 50s and 60s in bathrooms! I'm just glad our bathroom was semi-updated and we just have off-white tile from the floor up to 3 feet-ish high! I can rip those suckers out and put up beat board (I think that's what it's called) if I want!

I like that show too, but I really like the International House Hunters. I also like That show were they go in and fix the place up for $1000 before the open house. I have gotten all kinds of ideas from that show. Yeah my Home Depot card nearly got maxed out.

Pink bathrooms...My MIL's bathroom is pink and maroon tiles, has been since the 60's and she loves it.

I like these shows too, but the Internationl ones depress me when their budgets are in the 500 thousands and above. I usually want to renovate something when I see these shows, so I turn to a dresser and reorganize to keep the reno rantings at bay.
My dad loves to call these shows "house p0rn".

House Hunters International is a good show but that show is completely unrealistic for me to watch! It's so crazy!
