I am an HGTV addict

I used to think that home shows were so boring. I couldn't understand how my parents could spend every weekend at Home Depot.

And then we decided to buy a house.

And now I can't get enough HGTV.

I watch "Get Color" and dream about all the colors I could paint my new walls, and think about ripping up carpet.

I watch "Curb Appeal" and think about planting Meyer Lemon trees and placing fountains strategically to maximize the relaxation factor.

I watch "Design on a Dime" and man, those gals can really make $500 go far!

I watch "Designed to Sell" and "Flip That House" and think about the profit to be made through renovations.

But here's the thing.

We don't own a house yet. We haven't even started house hunting, since it will require a more-than 10 hour drive. Our house hunting trip is scheduled for April.

And yet I'm mentally sorting through paint chips and debating whether we need new windows with plantation shutters.

I need help.

I used to be a HGTV fan but these days it's all about Food Network. We just love the '30 Minute Meals", 'Iron Chef' and 'Paula Dean'.

I love Food Network, too! My new favorite is "Quick Fix Meals." I love the idea of preparing things once and then reusing them throughout the week.

Two houses for sale within two minutes of mine! Just thought I'd throw that in! :D

I love all those home shows! Especially Flip that House. My husband can't wait to flip a house! I, on the other hand, just want to get out of this apartment and into a house of our own!

I love, love, love these shows too. I love Moving Up and Designed to Sell.
