Men! Do you have an extra bedroom? Maybe he can put there!

He’s lucky to have a wife who actually plans things for his birthday! My Fiance and I have been together for 8 years, this past year, I wanted to take him on an dive/snorkel cruise to a place he’s never been (he’s a diver). He tells me he’d rather work on his birthday, so I decided not to do it. When his birthday came, he took the day off and went diving with his friends!

They (men) are strange creatures with one-track minds! πŸ™‚

Well…. I’m the one who wanted a huge tv, so we have a 54 (55?) inch tv. I think the speakers are a bit over the top though!

Meh…TV’s are like crack to men, and the bigger it is, the better it is…and the definition and the HDMI…oooooooo!  So boring right?  Whatever, the point if it blows his skirt up, let him put a freaking drive in theater in the back yard if that does it for him!  THAT way, the next time you wanna a little sparkly something gift box or, romantic dinner thingy with carriage ride…all you gotta do is point at that digital monstrocity in your living room and it wins the argument for you!

My husband falls into the “bigger is better” TV camp too, and I just don’t get it!  We live in a (relatively) smaller NYC apartment, too *sigh*

As for what to do, I think your birthday present to him sounds AWESOME.  If he really wants the TV and you are okay with doing it this year, maybe propose it as a Christmas/holiday present?  Let him know you want to clow down the spending for the rest of the year, so see if he can agree to limit other big purchases so you can comfortably buy the TV as a present in a few months.

Haha, are you sure your husband isn’t my husband? πŸ˜‰ My Darling Husband is exactly the same way!  I still have no solution…I also now have a 55″ tv AND onkyo speakers in our living room, so it was pretty clear who lost that one… πŸ˜€

AHHH Darling Husband is the same way! He told me he has a list of things he wants for his “set-up” as soon as we buy our own place. He already has TWO tvs as his computer monitors and he wants 1 more. WTF.

@weddingbound:  Funny thing is Darling Husband feels like he has to buy me things to “even out” his spending. As if spending the same ridiculous amount of money on me would make the situation any better! Now we’re down twice the amount of money! 😐 I’d definitely be singing a different tune IF we had that kind of money to blow.

I say just let him get the TV.

Our 42″ seemed huge when we got it but we adjusted so quickly and now we’d be thrilled to have one in the 50’s. We can’t go much bigger due to the size of our room, but if 60″ was feasible… we’d do it. πŸ™‚
