So, what does one see when they first step into the Costco warehouse? TVs!!!! And TVs galore! Usually the screens are playing an animated film, to distract the kids, and sure enough, this time they were playing Toy Story 3. A great movie, I must add! But what stopped us dead in our tracks was a 55 inch Samsung LCD.
Now...we have a 42 inch plasma right now in our living room. By no means is that a small TV...I actually think it's fine. But Chris has been wanting a bigger TV for some time now and we've decided to put that purchase off until some time next year. Until....we saw this baby. I was like this: 0_0...along with the other kids...staring at the huge, bright pictures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear running across the screen. I was entranced by how clear it was (because it's LED LCD) and how paper thing it appeared to be from the side view. What's great is that if you walk to the side of the TV, the picture color doesn't deteriote like on a plasma. It's wonderful! So...needless to say, we went home and searched online and got a great deal for it. Yep...we are now proud owners of a new 55 inch TV! It'll overwhelm our fireplace, I'm sure...but I don't mind. I don't necessarily think a TV should be hidden or makes a room look horrible. I'm like Joey on Friends...our furniture all point towards our tube!
Welp, it was just another day...getting yogurt at Costco. Then coming home with a splurge. Anyone else ever go into a store with good intentions of just picking up something small, but ended up with a huge splurge?
