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!
