I think that's why I like Property Brothers now. Love the beginning when they take the couple into their"dream" house with everything on their wish list and they ooh and ah about everything and then the brothers tell them the price and shoot them down to reality.
That is my favorite part of that show. They always have champagne taste on a beer budget. I love the looks on their faces when they are told how much all of their "must haves" really cost.

Here were my "must haves" when I went house hunting: 3 bedrooms, in the school district, in budget. That's it!
House Hunters International sometimes has episodes where the buyers get a fixer-upper. There was one where they bought what was basically an old stone barn to fix up and live in, and at the end of the show (you know, where typically they've been "living" in the house for 3 months), they hadn't made much progress and had definitely not moved it yet. But they seemed to still be enjoying the process!
May your day be more beautiful than a unicorn farting rainbows!
