Watch out HGTV!

March 5th, 2018 at 11:54 am

I know I've commented on this before, but we watch HGTV and it seems every person looking for a house always has to have entertaining space.

We bought this home almost 20 years ago and I don't really think we said we needed entertaining space. Maybe we are weird. We wanted a ranch, a bigger kitchen (the other house's kitchen was tiny and had no storage), 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a bigger bedroom than we had. DH wanted a decent yard, but not huge. Because of allergies we hoped to get away form having a basement. Entertaining really wasn't a contender in our choice. We actually bought a bit smaller house than we had before. That one was 1600 square feet and this one is around 1500 square feet.

Well, DH pointed out we are entertaining tonight. My friend's birthday is today and I invited her and her husband over for dinner. Dinner will be lasagna, salad, Focaccia bread, and chocolate cake and ice cream for dessert. They were delighted to be invited and DH is delighted that there is cake and ice cream to look forward to.

Anyway, I guess it is time for HGTV to watch out -- we are entertaining!

    I don't think we need entertaining space...we have a living room, dining room and porch we can use if people come over! I notice your blog looks a bit odd...did you change your categories? I think the length of them is causing them to cover up the words on the left hand side of your blog. Enjoy your friends!!

    No, I didn't change the categories. I saw the same thing with them covering up stuff.

    Wait, I did change them yesterday. I went in and fixed it. Thanks CCF!

    I watch House Hunters and I sometimes chuckle over some of the comments made about not enough entertaining space in a 2500 square foot house!

    You are welcome! I noticed it the other day, but I couldn't figure out what the problem might be. It looks good now.

    I have always laughed at the word "entertaining", but then again, I'm old (48). I'm not a circus performer! 😂 We used to call it "getting together for cocktails or dinner or whatever". We don't need extra room to have people over, and I've had very large groups over with no problem. Our house is 1,675 sf, small kitchen, small house. It's actually very cozy and comfortable!

    How funny because I said the same thing to my husband about these real estate shows just last night! Smile
