New Stuff!

So last week I was worried because the TV in our living room started acting up and then on Friday it went out! If you know me then you must know how distraught I was…. my first thought was “oh no, does the DVR still record if the TV is broke” and the answer is YES thank goodness! I kinda had luck on my side because of Sunday’s Super Bowl (good timing for a new TV)….I knew it would prompt Matt to get a new one quicker and I was right! (insert smirk) So Saturday after shopping around we found a sweet deal at Best Buy and would you know instead of a 42″ we came home with a 55″!

The entertainment center that held our old TV has been so good to me, this is from my single life a Christmas gift but it only fits a 42! We had to do a “room switcheroo” SO here is Matty figuring out what cord goes to what?!? And between us close friends you do NOT want to know what was lurking behind that!?!

And you will never believe what I found inside my entertainment center…..2 boxes of VHS movies! It was a nostalgic walk down memory lane so I couldn’t throw them away!

Lucky us we just switched out the entertainment center in the living room with the office and it was perfect! Buying more furniture was not an option! Here she is……….

I also finally used my Christmas money and we got a new living room rug! They don’t last too long at our house with my brood! I like the light color because it addss little somethin-somethin to our dark living room!

Here is the old entertainment center in it’s new home….the office, looks like it belongs!

And here is the updated living room with a fire going to boot!! It isn’t perfect, it is always a work in progress but we love it and funny how large the room looks after moving some things around!

That was just what I needed for a little Winter pick me up! Just wanted to share! Have a good day!

    Exciting! Who would have thought Superbowl Sunday is good for something other than socializing and eating too many buffalo wings ;)I've told my boyfriend more than once that if he buys a new tv before he purchases an engagement ring he's toast! Joking of course… well, half joking 😉
