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!

No, this is not my kitchen but oh how I wish it was!! This is my favorite picture to show Conner what I want in a kitchen – dark wood floors, white cabinets, light counters and light walls. L. O. V. E. it!!! Today our ‘head-knocker’ cabinets (the ones from the 80’s that extend over the long counter and block your view to the breakfast nook and hang so low you hit your head on them) are coming out and I am PUMPED! It will be like Christmas to come home and see those babies out of my life for good!

We are currently living in a semi-state of construction and I am so ready for it to be over. I don’t know how people do this for longer or for more rooms! So far, we’ve had a door installed from the master bath to master bed (no, there wasn’t one before and we have no clue why), our mantel ripped out of the fireplace, a new mantel installed, cable and power ran down the back of our fireplace and our TV mounted above the fireplace into the brick. This week the kitchen cabinets are coming out, a new single cabinet will be built against the wall in place of the old row of cabinets, the fluorescent lighting in the kitchen is coming out, new sheet rock going up and canned lighting installed instead. Whew! It is intense but I know the end result will be so worth it!

Once the guys are finished with those kitchen projects, we will paint the dark wood cabinets a bright white, paint a light color (exact color TBD) over the country red on the walls and install new hardware. Oh baby, the painting never ends!! Conner and I are becoming quite the professionals. I would say you could hire us, but I don’t know if we will want to pick up a brush again once this is over. Hah!

We have the awesome 1982 texture on our walls and it has been quite fun (*sarcasm*) to paint into all of the little holes and crevices the texture provides. I think our paint is getting eaten by it all – we have gone through so many gallons because of it! We’re doing good on progress though but now we’re to the point where we just want the house in order and to live like normal people. We’ll see how quickly we get there. 🙂

Check out this amazing kitchen. Love the white, love the butcher block island top and the style of the drawer pulls…but I also LOVE the TV in the island! What a great idea for a room that doesn’t connect to the family room. I think having a TV in the kitchen is a great idea. Everyone gathers there whether it be just you reading the paper or a party of friends who want to keep watching the game but also want to grab something to eat. Such a clever idea!
