“Okay, I’ll be home soon,” he said. “I’m at the store.”
The store? Hmm. Ryan isn’t the type of guy who just goes to a store to browse around. I knew he’d been eyeing televisions for several weeks now, so I immediately asked him whether or not he was buying anything.
“Yesss,” he said.
“Something big?” I asked.
Oh Lord. “How big?”
“The perfect size.”
When Ryan and I have looked at televisions together in the past he leaned toward TVs that were between 45 and 5,000 inches. I liked 42” and under.
As I pulled into our driveway, I saw a huge box in the back of his SUV with two large numbers on the side: 46”.
I helped Ryan haul it into our house and set it up on our TV stand.
It’s definitely a lot larger than our old TV, but it does look pretty sharp. Plus, I have one happy fiance, who immediately proclaimed “I can’t wait for the World Cup!” Oh joy.
Here are before and after shots of our TVs:
After the TV was set up, we turned it on to Cash Cab. It was like we were in the cab!
With all the excitement of our new TV, we had to let Sadie in on some fun, so we hopped in the car to spend an hour or so running around at the dog park.
As always, Sadie found a ball right away, so many rounds of fetch ensued.
Since it was pretty warm outside, Sadie also enjoyed play time in the lake.
You’d think she’d be a pooped puppy by the end of this trip, but I’m sitting here blogging in our backyard while she’s running around chasing lizards. (Also, please don’t forget that she also went on a 55 minute run/walk with me this morning!) This dog doesn’t stop!
After the park, we swung by McDonald’s for a snack-size Oreo McFlurry.
It was a nice little appetizer.
The cold, creaminess of the McFlurry made me want more of the same for dinner.
Of course an actual McFlurry wouldn’t make a very nutritious meal, so I settled for another green monster (my second of the day!).
I made this one a “double” and it was so stinkin’ good.
I think I’m officially obsessed with these bad boys.
I poured my green monster into a bowl and ate it with sliced strawberries and granola on top… Both of which sunk into the thick smoothie really quickly!
I had to be a fast photographer!
This was also Ryan’s first taste of a green monster and he was impressed!
Something about a green monster makes me feel energetic and rejuvenated. I don’t know what it is, but I love ‘em.
Hope you’re having a great night!
