The hubs and I have discussed upgrading our pathetic looking tv to a cool and sleeker flat screen tv. Right now we are the "proud" owners of a lovely 26" tv. Yeah, small by many standards. So this year we decided that on Black Friday we would brave the crowds and go after a new tv. That would be our big Christmas present to each other.

The tv really isn't that important to me. As long as it's a flat screen, then I don't really care about anything else. Yes, when the hubs and I went to Circuit City to scope out various sets I could see a difference between the 720p and 1080p. I personally would vote for a higher dpi and a smaller tv, you know that whole quality over quantity approach. At the end of the day, I'm not going to go crazy over a tv.

The hubs is taking point on this one and is doing the majority of the research. Of course he comes home tonight and when the tv topic comes up he raves about a 50" tv he found on sale.

I think my jaw hit the floor. Seriously? Fifty inches of television in our tiny 14' wide living room. Really, I think that's a bit of overkill. When we went and looked at tvs I was focusing on the 36-42" range. This massive beast that has caught my hubs' attention was not what I had in mind.

I should have known better. Note to self: never let the hubs have full control over an electronic device purchase. Unless of course he wants to buy me a fantastic camera. That type of over-the-top grandness I could appreciate.


  1. that is hilarious...me - I have bad eyes so the bigger the better...i swear that one day my kids will have brain damage so that their mommy can watch HGTV clearly :)

  2. Hah! My jaw would drop as well. I'm terrible with dimensions, so I'm not sure if your 14' room is comparable to ours, but I honestly love our 37" tv. It's the perfect size for us!
