Brian and I have a long list of items we would like to get for our house: a new mattress, a new kitchen floor, different shades for the sliding glass doors, etc. etc. But one thing we really wanted to update was our TV. For the first 5 and 1/2 years of our marriage we've been watching a 19" or 20" television. So after saving up for a while, we finally broke down and bought a nice TV to go in our den. This thing better last us a long time because it was not cheap, but I think we'll really enjoy it. Welcome to the family Samsung 40 inch flat screen!
