Since WE can't sell our damn house which means I can't BUY another house in our new location I have been living vicariously through House Hunters. Suprisingly, StinkBug and Peanut are VERY dedicated viewers. We are talking Diehard Fans. StinkBug DEMANDS that I rewind it if he walks in the room and I have started watching an episode. He is a connoisseur of large kitchens and spa like bathrooms. An island is on his list of must-haves. He likes clean lines. He comments on paint color and yard size. The boy just turned 5. Naturally he picks his favorite house and hopes to heck they pick it too!
We just entered new territory. We now compete with our predictions. It was the episode in Minneapolis where the guy has looked at 120 freaking places...over 3 years! You can read more about it here. I wanted to throat punch Chris AND kick him in the nut sack. Though I'm not sure he has one of those since he seems totally incapable of making a DECISION. Who takes three years to buy a damn house?
StinkBug (and Apaprently Tara & Chris) loved the first house..it was a Tudor- totally move in ready with a funky kitchen floor. I thought for sure that analytic overthinker Chris would go with the fixer upper so he could build equity...way more square footage. And since every third word out of his mouth is EQUITY. EQUITY. EQUITY it seemed obvious.
We both cast our votes. When they announced the winner StinkBug starts jumping on the bed and in my face appropriately yelling "in da face, in da face!"
What's your favorite House Hunters episode? What do you love to hate about the show?
