Friday Find – Welcome to my Dream Home

Do you ever watch HGTV?  I can sit and watch it for hours if I have nothing better to do.  A few weeks ago, on a lazy Sunday, HGTV had their special on of the making of the 2012 Dream Home located in Utah.  They do this (I think) every year.  Build a dream home and give it away to one lucky winner who probably can’t afford the upkeep or taxes on it.  But the bright side is that you can take a cash payout and run instead of the responsibility of a beautiful new home with a dream kitchen and spectacular view.

Now if I won this home, I would almost have to “test” drive it first.  I know we can’t afford the taxes and upkeep on this place but man, its located right smack dab in the middle of some good skiing country and just look at that kitchen.  Think of all of the “good food” I could make in there!  Maybe its not the perfect “year round home” for us but it would be the perfect vacation home.  Trouble is we can’t afford a vacation home like that.  But a girl can dream, can’t she?

So if you have nothing better to do and want to take a “tour” of the dream home, head over to HGTV’s website and take a look around.  We all can dream together.

    Beautiful hardwood floors. I would, of course, have to dump the dogs off at the pound…which the husband would object to…so the husband would skip…so I’d end up alone and lonely in a beautiful house. Um, maybe I’ll just take the money. And look at the pictures. ;p
    (P.S. I’d never dump the dogs off – so please don’t flame me!)

    LOVE that kitchen!!! ::drool:: And, hey, I think you get some $$ with the win, so you COULD afford that house! Or, sell it and use it to build your dream house in Viroqua!
