Breaking News…I officially got word that HGTV is getting ready to air our episode of House Hunters International!!! We are so excited to share this with you and I am also totally terrified. We filmed many months back and have been waiting to see if they deem us “suitable for TV.” We filmed for 5 days and they only really use like 22 minutes, so I have no idea how I will come across or what I look like. Do I say the stereotypical stuff about a deeply rooted need for double sinks and closet space just for me? I also remember getting sick before they filmed and my voice was super hoarse. It is terrifying to have your face blasted across national TV for all to see. And the folks on twitter using #househuntersinternational are a passionate bunch, but aren’t that kind. Our episode is called “Getting Diplomatic in Mexico City”. The description reads…
”After 16 years abroad, a Mexican diplomat based in Washington, DC, returns home to Mexico City with his American wife and two young kids. Having moved frequently for his government work, the couple has grown accustomed to the nomadic lifestyle, but moving out of the US with the kids may require more than just old-school diplomacy.“
Are you gripped?!?!
I am planning to write two more posts about this. One about our experience on the show and another with interviews of the crew who work on the show and travelled to Mexico to film us. I think it is fun to get to know the professionals behind the scenes.
We will be season 144 episode 8! Yes, there have been that many seasons of HHI (as they call it for short). Our air date is Tuesday, October 15th at 10:30PM EST/9:30 CT. You all might get to see it before me, unless I can find someone here in Mexico who is pirating American TV.
If any one doesn’t know, HHI is a show that features people who move from one country to another and follows them on their house hunt at their new location. It is fun to see what houses look like around the world and you get to try to guess which one they pick. For years I was a big fan and avid watcher. House Hunters has been described as television “comfort food.” The format is simple, familiar and repetitive to those who watch it. It is also family friendly and non political. TV you can veg out and relax with. Tune in!

Rants of a Diplomat's Wife
Hola, I am an American married to a Mexican Diplomat. I am on my 3rd post as a trailing spouse. The first two posts I joined were in the US, and in July 2018 we moved to Mexico City. Maybe it was the fact that I was pumping out my diplo-babies, or maybe I didn't think anyone would be interested in diplomatic life at my US posts, but I didn't blog then. Now I am in Mexico, and perhaps you might find it interesting to know what life is like here. This is where I share my adventures and thoughts at my current post.
