Dream Home

Derek is real excited this year about the HGTV Dream House.

He enters to win twice most days.

When he sees commercials for it, he refers to it as "my dream house".

He says that everything about this house is his dream house.

The other night when we were in bed, I asked him if he could live anywhere in the world where would it be. He said Stowe, Vermont, in the dream house.

I asked him what he would do there. This was his reply:

Make fires.
Have snowball fights.
Make ginger bread houses.
Make pizzas.
Go for hikes.
Go skiing.
Sleep in bunkbeds. {He said that we would share a bunk.}

I asked if he would be willing to up and move from Lexington. He said yes. But he said we would keep our house as our summer house. Since you also win $500,000. I guess he's thinking pay off our house while we're at it and keep both.

I asked what we would do for jobs. He said he would write books and I would edit them. In case you didn't know, I'm an engineer. If I'm the one editing his books I think we're in trouble.

The contest ends February 18. I'll let you know if we win.

this definitely brightened my day. :)

We enter everyday too! We could totally share, if we are actually eligible bc I found out ryan's mom's company manages the resort so we could be ruled out! Very sad but maybe we could take a vacation there!!! :)
