After my 5K, I took a nap, showered, and had a Clif Bar.

Meghann gave me this today and I was very anxious to taste the elusive Holiday Clif bars!  Verdict — it was OK. Not amazing like a Spooky Smore Z-Bar or anything, but still very good.


Then, we went to the mall to do some honeymoon shopping.  I didn’t find anything I liked, but we did get a chance to stop of at the tux store and double-check our reservations.


We grabbed a late lunch at Red Star Tavern…


We sat outside and enjoyed the winter breeze.  I ordered the Hong Kong Chicken Salad with some modifications.


To transform this salad into something more healthy, I requested grilled chicken, dressing on the side, and no crispy wontons.  I also skipped the avocado (but only because I’m allergic).


It was delish! I couldn’t finish it, though.


And then…. I fulfilled Future Husband’s every wish, hope, and desire.

I let him buy another flat screen TV.


He did the preliminary research yesterday, and we checked out Circuit City and Best Buy tonight.  Now…. we *already* have a 42-inch plasma Phillips TV with ambient light (which is AWESOME), but Future Husband has been begging and pleading for another TV for months!


Now, we didn’t buy our first TV outright and we certainly cannot afford to buy this one outright either.  Best Buy and Circuit City are BOTH offering 36 months with 0% financing, so we only have to make a low, low payment every month and in three years, it will actually be ours!! :) 


We decided on this bad boy….


It’s a Sony 52-inch LCD 1080  p HDTV with 120 hz.  That might be gibberish to you, but trust me — the See Bride Run and Future Husband family KNOW their TV lingo! 😛


Our deal also included:  free delivery, free installation, and a FREE BlueRay player.  The retail stores are bleeding this season!


It’s being delivered on next Monday! Our 42-inch TV is being transferred to the bedroom. Now, it’s "my" tv. Woo hoo!


I came home and made soup, crackers, and cheese.


And now… I’m off to reading Twilight and munch on a little chocolate.


Sleep tight!

    My boyfriend was obsessed with wanting a new TV even though the big flat screen he had was plenty big. Then his apartment got ruined form the hurricane so he got a new one. And, magically, his old TV started working again! So now we have 2 big screens, too! Those boys…

  • Justine December 14, 2008, 7:28 pm

    Hahaha, speaking of the boyfriend, that “Curtis” up above was me. Didn’t realize he was logged in 🙂

  • Angela December 14, 2008, 7:32 pm

    haha you guys are just like Eric and I- we know all the TV lingo, computer lingo, any high tech lingo basically. We research everything! Eric is a computer genius so I have learned so much from him about gadgets.

    You get your own TV now…that is something to smile about!!

    Hopefully Eric doesn’t read your post- he’s been begging for a new flatscreen for a while now. lol.

    you sat outside?? ha… if only I could (I know you live where it’s warm though).

  • bitesoflife December 14, 2008, 7:50 pm

    Lunch looks really good, and I am totally jealous about being able to enjoy it outside!

    Enjoy your new TV. Funny story, my boy saw your picture of the TV and asked what size it was and proceeded to pull out the model number and all the specs without seeing anything you said. He’s a dork, but I know how you feel!

  • girlrunningaround December 14, 2008, 7:52 pm

    Whoa huge TV! But with 0%, free setup and free delivery you totally stole it!

  • Marissa December 14, 2008, 7:53 pm

    Yay for chocolate and Twilight!

  • Melissa December 14, 2008, 7:55 pm

    Wait until you watch a movie with the Blu-ray player. Huge difference! My company makes the software for blu-ray players and I love having one in my house. Even a regular DVD played in it is so much better. Have fun!

  • VeggieGirl December 14, 2008, 7:58 pm

    You’re allergic to avocados?!??!! Tragic 🙁

    Niiiice new teleivision!!

  • Laura December 14, 2008, 7:59 pm

    At least his wanting a new tv is something that benefits you too! Sounds like you got a great deal!

  • Julie December 14, 2008, 8:12 pm

    Sweet deal on the TV!

  • Katy December 14, 2008, 8:30 pm

    My TV looks so incredibly dinky now.

  • HangryPants December 14, 2008, 8:32 pm

    Caitlin, you need a giant TV to watch your TV marathons on!!!!

  • Meg December 14, 2008, 8:33 pm

  • Megan December 14, 2008, 8:52 pm

  • Mica December 14, 2008, 11:23 pm

    oooh, suffering from TV envy. Ours is so outdated. Maybe one day I’ll make the leap into sexy TVs of the future!

    I’m sorry you’re allergic to avocado. That must make guacamole kind of hard to love…

  • magpie December 14, 2008, 11:48 pm

    Bobby is jealous now.

  • Balance, Joy and Delicias! December 15, 2008, 4:32 am
