It seems Oprah could soon be calling the Northwest home. Well, one of her many homes, that is ... she recently purchased a 43-acre estate on Orcas Island for $8.2 million.

The estate has a main house, a gazebo with glass walls, a barn, a workshop, a craft shed and a sauna. The island is known for whale watching.

Oprah, you're missing out! You could have purchased something grand right here in warm wine country.

It would be pretty cool to see celebrities wandering around Yakima. Rolling through Starbucks or shopping at Fred Meyer. It happens in the bigger cities like Nashville, New York and Los Angeles.

It would be awesome to see Tim McGraw ordering his morning coffee at the same time I was, or Alexander Skarsgard grocery shopping. Hey, a girl can dream!

What celebrity would you want to see move to Yakima?
