    Design Shows

    Apparently, you and I are the only ones! On an instragram post about the show, all the comments are absolutely gushing. The only slight criticims were that her design was too much like Joanna Gaines. Which I don't agree with. Agreed!

    Design Shows

    Did anyone catch the new show on HGTV last night (at least new to me?) called, I believe, One of a Kind? The couple featured had a sprawling 1960's ranch and were only the second owner. The designer is a "kooky" artist type. The couple shared that they had written love letters to each other when they first started dating and she was all excited to get her hands on them to incorporate them into the design. She ended up making wallpaper of their writings. Good God. I think the husband was going to pass out when he first saw it. I was so happy when he said something to the effect of how he was scanning the walls to make sure she hadn't chosen anything embarrassing. I would have done the same. It still was embarrassing. The kitchen of the home was very Brady Bunch but something about it was still so lovely! Of course, it was torn out to make way for "open concept"...weeping...in a 1960's ranch 😞 She even took down a brick column and repurposed it into the stove hood which was completely out of place against the modern black tile she chose. But again, a ridiculous choice of a large sign over the stove that read, "I love you schweetie". It looked like a diner! Not a fan. Kind of reminded me for some reason of a Trading Spaces kind of design? Very homemade? Would love to hear if anyone else saw it.

    Auckland wife bugged me. If Tate is going to fling himself over the balcony railing, maybe don't let him go onto the balcony alone? Tate this, Tate that. Ughhhhhh. Husband seemed totally smitten with the wife and it sounded like he really credited her for expanding his horizons. I fear he's been relegated to the sperm donor territory now that she has her precious Tate.

    S07.E13: Reptilian Brain

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! This fool will end up married, pregnant, and with more babies than any of them. It probably won't be with Tom, but it will happen. She's so concerned with being "different" that she'll say anything to fit that mold. And it's a big pile of garbage. And on the subject of Tom, good Lord, can the guy catch a sense of humor?? He takes himself and everything around him sooooo seriously. And dude isn't a serious guy and certainly doesn't live a serious life. Get over yourself, please.

    Windy City Rehab

    They did this in another episode as well and I found it upsetting too. The owners had the home decorated very uniquely, for sure, but it was their home and I'm sure they loved the way it looked. Who are you to make fun of someone's home just because it doesn't fit with your ridiculous "design" aesthetic? Not everyone wants gray walls. I think the person who lived in the overly decorated and wallpapered home was probably a pretty interesting, cool or creative person! Have a little respect.

    General True Crime Shows

    When they got to the part about the victim going back to the island, I had to turn it off. It was absolutely gut wrenching. I couldn't watch his pain when he was in the cabin. Poor, poor man.

    Windy City Rehab

    OMG, this woman. Everyone appears to thankfully be on the same page.....she's a bull in a China shop, out to absolutely destroy everything in her path. It's really hard to watch. Ok, I understand that somewhere out there is a 23 year old couple who for whatever reason can afford a million + dollar home. Nobody is being fooled by these fake actors. Geesh, the little girl "potential buyer" in the last episode had absolutely the worst vocal fry I've ever heard.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Can we give an award to sweetest family for the Tallahassee episode?? Loved them and especially the scene at the end with the toolbox! What a lovely, reasonable young woman. I had to laugh at her Mom calling her tastes "old". What a nice problem to have; a young person who appreciates some character and doesn't need to see marble and stainless steel.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Yes, I think they were both pretty mean spirited towards each other. He had some biting remarks but she seemed like kind of a bubble head and he was just over it. Pickles, there was some pretty amusing commentary on this episode when it aired. I'm quite certain that girlfriend has been long gone for a while now. Poor thing, she certainly had diamond rings in her eyes and I think he was in a completely different place! Was the Colorado episode that followed the Maine episode a rerun? What in the world caused that poor girls phobia of grout? Are you kidding me? Yes, in certain places (like on a countertop) I could see where you'd want to avoid it because of cleaning. But to expect a grout-free bathroom? They were an odd couple. I think he picked Miss Mousey so he could feel superior. Her constant over the top giggling at everything he said must have built up his ego. I finally had to turn it off and I didn't even care which place they picked. I wish she would've spent some time in the shower washing her gross greasy hair before appearing on t.v. She reminded me of a Duggar.

    It's amazing how excited she can get over a brown shirt. Wow.

    House Hunters Renovation

    I know it's all part of the show but why-oh-why would any of these people employ a "designer" when their tastes are so completely run of the mill??? Who can't go to Lowe's and pick out some white shaker cabinets and the local kitchen and bath shop and purchase a white countertop? Geesh. It's comical everytime the designer says, "I propose.....", pulls out the same three materials and the owners go ga-ga like they've never seen such originality! If I were to hire a designer, my first question before moving any further would be, "do you ever propose a barn door"? Because if you do, I'm not trusing the design aesthetic of my home to your dim wit.

    S23.E02: Week 2

    I was only able to make it a little over halfway through this trainwreck. It's like watching a horror movie through your hands. The level of discomfort in watching these fools is not pleasant! Regarding Hannah's difficulty in opening up and Colton's "patience" in allowing her to do so. What are we talking about here folks, a span of two hours? Wow, Hannah, I'm sorry it's so difficult for you. You know, to take a few hours to be able to unload all of your desperately unattractive confessions onto the dinner table. It must be soooo hard to hold in things for such an unreasonable amount of time. And Colton, what a guy for really putting in the time, the whole two hours, to make this idiot comfortable enough to tell you her dirty secrets. That's some stamina there on both of their parts. So impressive. I don't think Colton knows what autism is. Because he's encountered so many autistic children in the hospital when he's doing his volunteer work. Hmmmm.....maybe he's confusing cancer for autism? You know, it's tricky like that. But I don't think there are a high number of autistic kids just hanging out in a hospital bed. My dream date.....public speaking. Sign me up.

    S01.E08: This Young Woman Fought Like Hell

    I wonder what the timeline was for Debra's multiple marriages and how they fell in line with her children still being young and in her home? It must have been difficult to have had a revolving door of new "Daddies". I shudder to think that Debra could have been one of those women to allow a child abuser/molester into her home and then side with the man when her children made accusations. Again I'll say, she's mighty lucky her kids seem to have inherited the family forgiveness gene. I think many would have (rightly so) estranged themselves from such a mother.

    Or that Grandma Dearest hadn't joined the vigil all while ignoring Terra, because, forgiveness you know.
