...and then there's crazy

Yeah. Some folks think were nuts for putting time, energy, sweat, money, sleepless nights, exhausting weekends blah, blah, blah into our obsessions houses. But at least we're not the folks i saw on Location, Location, Location on bbc america last night. A couple, with the wife 6 mos pregnant, were looking for an old country house in Suffolk. They wanted something they could put "their own mark on" ie a fixer. Their top choices were a. a huge medieval estate from the 1400s, b. a huge house that had been a pub from the 1300s (rejected because the kitchen was updated) and c. another huge estate from 1600s (among a few other properties which were rejected for various reasons). Now THAT, my friends, is crazy. (But the show is good.)

That is one of our very own favorite shows around the Revivalized Estate.

The craziest HGTV thing I ever saw: a couple has a nursery designed for them while they wait for their *surrogate* to give birth...... and the designer who specializes in baby rooms shows up visibly pregnant!!!!

I think they should do a follow up episode after the baby is born and see if they feel the same way! I'll have to check that show out!

My favorite to date (I'm new to the show) is tonight's show when they showed this couple a house the men couldn't even stand upright in! Proof positive that folks have gotten taller over the years!
