My latest obsession? Entering my name into the HGTV dream home giveaway. I want to win this thing so badly that I actually considered not writing about it here in the attempt to hide the contest from anyone out there who doesn't know about it. Less other people entering means that my odds are better. Does that mean I'm a bad person?

Granted, I am the girl who pushed her best friend into a row of corn in the selfish attempt to avoid being killed by the 25 year old high school drop-out hired by the haunted corn maze to terrify people by running a chainsaw.

But, really, the house they're giving away this year is so dreamy and perfect.

The ear doctor and I have already decided what we are going to do with it WHEN we win on March 15th. For the next little while, until the ear doctor is fully done with school we will rent it out to special people who want to tour wine country, like a time share. We'll fly out there once a month to check on our beauty and eat at French Laundry.

Then, when he graduates, we'll move out there and turn it into a B&B. The ear doctor will be the most prominent and awesome audiologist around and I'll wake up every morning to work in my garden and prepare fabulous locally inspired meals for the awesomely nice people who come to stay with us.

See, that's not the most selfish vision in the world, right?

(please don't hold it against me if I don't provide a link to the contest....I'm not a FULLY generous person yet)

Wow that house looks awesome! I'd Google it but I'm afraid I'd be tempted to enter it and I'd feel at least a little bit guilty if I won and you didn't! ;)

too bad you are competing with us :( We are positive we are the ones to win, so please don't be mad when they reveal our names :) Good Luck!

Sounds like you could be a writer about B&B & run the business.
