    • Ingrid, I am trying to have faith. Last year the first Black Woman ever to win " HGTV Dream Home 2010" was a Doctor with an Autistic Son, who use to live in New Orlean; and she lost her house to Katrina. This is the type of person that should be winning these sweepstakes. Some-one who really needs it. Also the woman who just won the " Urban Oasis 2011" was a Black Woman from Baltimore, MD. So I have hope from all the years that I have been looking at this show. I just hope one day that I could be there with these 2 women and win one of these Sweepstakes, and be as happy as they are right now. I stand proud as a Black Woman. I hope you are as proud to, as a Woman.

  4. Carol, very Happy Birthday and Congratulations! Don't pay any attention to the "Danny & Debbie Downers". Gosh people what's wrong with you all??? Deal with the results, move on . It' is just a contest! Surly you don't let your entire life revolve around this event. Millions and millions entered and only one person won. Get over it people! Carol I'm thrilled for you and your family. Enjoy it for a while , sell it after a while , and luxuriate in the extra money it might provide you and your family. All the best! I am truly happy for you!

  5. Congrats Carol….
    You are the envy of all !! I can say it was a big let down for all of us that followed this beauty from the beginning and we prayed, dreamed and voted ,wished and worried over this beautiful home that seemed to take our souls…
    You are very fortunate and I hope that you will be very happy in Susan…
    I was ready to move there in a heartbeat as I am sure were others. It's hard to let go of the dream but I suppose it was in the cards for you. Feel Blessed because in my eyes you are very blessed… Congrats again !!!

    • You have to have hope. Whether you win or lose, its all a part of the game and life. I have gotten my hopes up for so many things in my life only to have them dashed, but hey, it won't stop me from hoping again. I just say, "Oh well", shrug my shoulders, pick myself up, brush myself off, and keep on truckin'.

      Dghawk4 on November 2, 2011 at 6:43 pm
    • Absolutely right! You GO Girl!!! B):)
