The Random Comment that Strangers have made that I WISH were True!!

My husband and I have heard a random comment from strangers twice now that I WISH were true.  Any guesses on what it is?

Still thinking? Anything?

Okay, I’ll just write it out:

Wow, you look like one of those cute couples you’d see on HGTV…like those couples searching for / renovating a house.

Oh my – wouldn’t that be awesome?! Property Brothers, Love it or List It, or Rehab Addict come my way!! We ARE cute, and we COULD use your brilliant home knowledge and renovation skills!

Before I go all HGTV crazy, I’ll give a little more background on how we were told this on two separate occasions. The first time was in immediate care at a clinic.  I had somehow managed to injure myself watching fireworks on the 4th of July.  It was a breezy night, so there was some dust and debris blowing around during the fireworks.  I managed to somehow get ash in my eye, which irritated my contacts, and ultimately made me scratch my cornea.  We went to immediate care to get it checked out.

The doctor walked into my exam room, and his first comment after introductions was the HGTV one! He said he could picture us being introduced on the show and everything.  Pretty random, huh?!

Me & Daddy O. in 2007 - the summer after the "ash" incident. Don't we look HGTV read? We're just in a bar here.

Fast forward to 2015 when Daddy O. and I were out at a traditional Wisconsin supper club, enjoying a drink at the bar while we waited for a table.  The man next to us started up a conversation, saying that we looked like a couple from reality tv, like HGTV!  At least I think he meant HGTV and not some other crazy reality show.  Anyway, we just laughed and enjoyed chatting with him and his wife (who happened to be wearing a fanny pack – love it!).

Me & Daddy O. Christmas 2014. I look a little flushed here, but I can tone it down for the camera. C'mon, we still look cute for HGTV, right?

Now I realize a doctor and a fellow diner at a supper club (who I believe was an accountant), are FAR from Hollywood scouts, but if I hear from another person that we should be on HGTV, I’m going to start lobbying for our cause with Scripps Network!  I think I’d start by trying to lure those cute Property Brothers to Wisconsin…hmmm…

What HGTV show would you like to be on most? What random things have strangers said to you that you’d wish would be true?
