This post is dedicated to...

This post is dedicated to Excedrin Back and Body.  How do I love thee, let me count the ways.  Today I love thee because I have moved three pieces of furniture, some pretty heavy,and a really heavy tv all over my house.  And I believe that because of you Excedrin, I will be able to get out of bed tomorrow.  You haven't let me down in the past, and I hope you don't this time.

I went to Dillards and picked up my new tv console this afternoon.  Talk about a fiasco.  Let's just say that if I would have been able to locate one person who spoke English, it would have gone so much smoother (or as always, if I spoke Spanish). 

Jennifer and Kyle (and little Joshua) came over after dinner to help me move everything around and hook everything up.  Kyle and I lifted until I'm sure we will both be sore tomorrow.  Jennifer didn't help us lift a darn thing...something about being pregnant, blah, blah, blah!  :)  We finally got everything situated.  We moved out a bookcase/storage piece from the office, and that went home with them for the new baby's nursery.  We moved the old living room amoire into the office.

We got the tv and all the components set up in the living room.  I love the way it looks, but obviously it will eventually look nicer with a new flat screen.  Perhaps the best part of the night is that tech savvy Kyle took a look at my Apple TV and it turns out I can hook it up to this old school tv!  Wish I had known that since I've had it sitting in the closet since October, but I'm so glad to know it now!  Currently, I'm syncing my itunes collection to the Apple TV and I'm just happy as a clam! 

I love the way the new piece looks in my living room
One of the things I love about it is the top.  It's so pretty and once I have a flat screen it will be even more visible since it won't cover as much surface area.
(Yes, I have my tv sitting on a towel.  It's pretty ghetto, but I was afraid this tv would indent the top of the console since the wood is raised a little bit due to the pattern.  In case you think I'm being over-dramatic, we looked it up in the manual and the tv weighs approx. 150 pounds!)

It is absolutely perfect! I don't blame you one bit on the towel. The top is what makes the piece. Once you get your flat screen you will be able to admire the top more!
