I am a huge fan of HGTV. It is welcome, mindless entertainment. The shows’ hosts have become end-of-the-day companions as I wait for my husband to finish with his early evening entertainment of computer games.
Meet my favorites
I really enjoy “Flip or Flop” because the reno only takes thirty minutes. The hosts, Tarek and Christina, are very engaging. They are major risk-takers and it’s fun to see whether or not their gamble pays off.
Tiny is fascinating
I also love “House Hunters” and especially, “Tiny House Hunters.” I think tiny houses are cool. My sister’s summer cottage qualifies, square-footage-wise, as a tiny house and it seems huge in comparison to what I see on “Tiny House Hunters.”
The rest of the crew
Then there’s Drew and Jonathan (“The Property Brothers”), Chip and Joanna Gaines (“Fixer Upper” — Joanna Gaines is by far my favorite designer) and Hilary and David (“Love It or List It” — Hilary has an unfair advantage since it’s far easier to stay rather than to move).
On the weekends I enjoy “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” and “Lakefront Bargain Hunt.” It’s particularly fun when they visit familiar places (yesterday’s “Lakefront” covered Lake Winnipesaukee in NH where we have vacationed, and Lake Martin in Alabama where my sister and her husband live during the winter months).
I decided to do some “lakefront bargain hunting” yesterday while out in the kayak. Usually I take pictures of nature scenes but frankly, I enjoy looking at houses as much as I do beautiful scenery. I do work in real estate after all! 🙂
As you will see, I have a wide variety of favorites …
from the cottage-type homes …
to the more luxurious …
So which house do you prefer? What would your dream home look like?
Can you guess my favorite?
Hint: location, location, location!
A fun outing topped off by time spent in the new “spa” (aka, the kiddie pool :-))
Hope your summer has been just as nice.
