Have no fear – this is my year to win the HGTV Dream Home! This house in Vermont looks absolutely amazing and I would love to live here.

The house itself is stunning but look at that backdrop – unbelievable! (I would also LOVE to upgrade my 1999 Grand Prix to the 2011 GMC Acadia Denali!!) What an amazing place to gather with friends and family or to just get away from it all whenever you need. If you won this house, would you move here year-round? I think we would stay in Oklahoma but visit this house often. I would love to host every Thanksgiving and Christmas in this home!

The massive kitchen with the top-of-the-line amenities is amazing! The Wolf range with burners plus grill to feed all 16 people staying in the house? Drooling.

The wine fridge that comes fully stocked? REALLY drooling. 🙂

I am looking for new side tables for our bedroom and love these Ethan Allen ones shown in the guest bedroom. Although the price range I’m considering is a lot less than these $700 beauties! I love the mirrors behind each table and the pendant lamps. This definitely looks a lot better than your typical ‘guest’ bedroom!

You should go ahead and get on my good side so you can stay in the private guest bedroom with its own bath instead of the ski dorm with a dorm bathroom. 🙂 Although, these super modern sinks and faucets are a lot nicer than my college dorm!

You can enter twice a day for the next 47 days – once at HGTV.com and once at FrontDoor.com. I shouldn’t get my hopes up too much, but still…with this gorgeous of a house it is hard not to want it so badly!

I love these three women on HGTV! These shows keep me entertained if I’m home on Saturday night (or on Sunday afternoons on the DVR if I’ve been out).

Sarah always does great work taking an older home, completely gutting it and making it her own. The fabric choices always work perfectly with everything else and she really knows how to pull a ton of patterns together to make it work without being ‘too much.’ I love it!

Genevieve has two shows on right now: Dear Genevieve and Battle on the Block. Have you seen BOTB? Hysterical! These couples put themselves through agony to compete against neighbors and re-do a room in their house in only three days and the fights that ensue…oh boy. It is so typical and expected but you still feel so badly for them because you have (well, at least I have) been in their shoes before…working on the house with your spouse and getting angry over very little and petty issues because you are so stressed and tired. Wow, you have to check this one out! It won’t make you want to do a project with your significant other ever again unless Genevieve shows up and offers to pay for everything and give you $10K if you win. Hah!

Candice Olson’s style is something that I wish mine would resemble. Casual elegance in its finest – it is definitely her specialty! She really does cool and neutral very well and it always feels very comfy and casual but at the same is elegant and formal – things that usually don’t go together but she makes it work! I hope I can do the same.
