• Tell Your Friends

Picture this: You’re sitting at home drinking your morning coffee just like always when something happens that completely alters your reality. Your heart starts racing. Your jaw’s hanging open in an unflattering manner. And your coffee is now splattered across the floor. I imagine that’s what it feels like to find out you’re the grand prize winner of the HGTV Dream Home 2011, a 2011 GMC Acadia Denali and 500,000 smackeroos. (And if it were me, there would be a lot of high-pitched screaming involved when host Monica Pedersen walked in, surrounded by television cameras.)

    I've been out of town for a little while. Is the HGTV crew that announces the weiner looking for me? Probably not. I've been so tied up this weekend watching March Madness, I forgot to check my mailbox to see if I won. Oh well. I'd rather see Obuma create good-paying jobs for a whole lot of folks than me win this house, which I would have sold from the git go and donated much of the proceeds to charity. Is the next one being built in China? Maybe I'll win there.

    I would love to win a home, but a home that was being saved from being demolished like an historical home or an older farm house. This would be more of a wow factor and again saving an older home. Keeping it green is so important and you see so many homes being given away for 1.00 but have to move to a new location of your choice. I feel if its an older home it should stay where it sits and not being sold for 1.00 so someone can build another home or building that usually takes away from the character of the neighborhood. Again it boils down to $$$$$ and politics. Meaning the city wants the property for other use for the city…. We need to save what we have, not building new which means destroying the green space & etc. The homes are always breath taking, but I wouldn't want a home overlooking a road. Yuck. Looks like a limited space for such a wow factor home….

    Let me just put it this way, I was so excited about the possibility of winning that I had my two teenagers watching the shows and the online videos. I even played a joke on my kids one day when all three of our dogs began barking for no apparent reason. I came running out of my bedroom as I was getting ready for work and ran into my daughter's bedroom exclaiming that an HGTV Van was outside. I told them that they had to go to the door because I had a towel on my head. The look on their faces was priceless! And how nice it would have been. Yes, We would have been excited. I could cry just thinking about it!
