HGTV Obsession


I’ve been obsessed with HGTV. It’s funny that I watch this channel all the time now, because my ex was obsessed with HGTV. The DVR would be full of the shows he watched and I would complain about it. I got tired of him watching this channel all the time, but I did watch some shows with him.

The four shows I like are Property Brothers, Fixer Upper, Love It or List It and Flip or Flop. I’m amazed at the renovations and how beautiful they are. Also, the stars of the shows are entertaining and funny. There’s not one show that I like more than the other. All of them do renovations, but the shows are different.

Property Brothers has twin brothers Drew and Jonathan creating a couple’s dream home from a fixer upper. Love It or List It has Hilary and David competing against each other where Hilary improves a couple’s existing home as David shows them new homes trying to get them to sell. Flip or Flop is about couple Tarek and Christina fixing up homes and some of these houses are real dumps. Fixer Upper is about couple Chip and Joanna fixing up a couple’s new home that is a fixer upper.

After spending hours watching these HGTV shows, I want the stars of these shows to do the renovations on my house when I get one.


Entertainment Center


This is an entertainment center I’ve been pondering for awhile. The lame reason I haven’t bought it yet is because it could take me a week to put it together…LOL.

The entryway bench I bought took me six hours to put together then another hour to finish it and I’m finally using it.

There are so many pieces to this entertainment center I’m estimating it will take a few days to put it together. I’m not up for the challenge at the moment.

But, maybe, in the near future, I will find the force and tackle this momentous task.

Organization – Procrastination


 I really need to remember to take before pics to go with the after pics…lol.

Finally, I finished putting my entryway bench together. The drawers were not done and I put the bottom part in them. They still don’t line up right so I’m just blaming that on the design of the bench. I figured out that the screws were not going in all the way on the brackets for the drawers, because I wasn’t using the right screw driver…lol. What can I say I’m a girl and not a handyman.

I’m the Queen Procrastinator and the bench went unfinished for several weeks. The silver rack you see in the closet in the second pic sat in the box it came in the same amount of time as the unfinished bench.

Now, my entryway and coat closet by the bench are organized. I won’t come home everyday and look at the mess telling myself I need to take care of it.

My Red Dog insisted on being in the pic…lol.

Shower – Life Lesson: Number Fifteen


When trying to fix your new shower head do it naked. You will need to turn the shower on to see if the new shower head works. And…you getting where I’m going with this?

Yes, I was standing in my tub and flipping the lever around on my shower head  mounted on the wall trying to see if the hand held shower head was fixed. The water shot out of the shower head not in my hand. 

And I was soaked. Luckily, I was only wearing my panties and bra.
