 You guys.

What’s the deal with guys and big tv’s? Is it some weird Freudian thing of bigger = better?

To be fair, this is coming from the same woman who watched all the seasons of Six Feet Under on an iPod nano while running on a treadmill. (Awesome show, btw). So I’m not kidding at all when I say that I really don’t get it.

Nathan just bought a GINORMOUS tv for our living room. It’s so big that I’m embarrassed to give you the dimensions.

We have had a policy since the beginning of our marriage that any purchase over $100 requires the approval of the spouse. So obviously, I was clued in that it was happening. My story, that I will always stick to, is that he caught me in a moment of weakness. (i.e. My entire 30’s).

You guys.

It’s SO big.

Like hurt your eyeballs big.

If there is some guy’s guy out there who can explain to me why GINORMOUS tvs are necessary, could you please explain it to me?


Not difficult to understand? These Easy Grilled Parmesan Potatoes! They cook up on a fool packet on the grill in about 30 minutes. They throw together in less than five minutes and they are the absolute perfect side when you are having a BBQ. Plus, foil packet = no clean up! Total win!

    So, um, we just bought a 60″…and I’ve wanted one that big (or bigger) since we bought the 47″ a few years ago. Mel was the one that said 47″ was big enough…until recently he conceded. But now that it’s here…it’s make-you-sick big. But I LOVE IT. Like these potatoes!

      Nathan sort of wants to leave me for you ;)

    I am totally with you about guys and the huge tvs! My husband is exactly the same way! And he’s always talking about “super HD” or “ultra HD” or whatever. I swear, they all look the same. I read something once about women’s eyesight being twice as good as men’s, so maybe they really can see a difference since their eyesight is worse than ours. But yeah–after 15 years of marriage I finally gave in and allowed my husband to buy a tv for our bedroom and mount it on the wall across from our bed. It is 55 inches. He wants a 70 inch for the living room. And then he wants to take pictures and brag to his brothers about it. Half the time, I think it’s a contest between men to see who has the biggest tv!

    • Lisa Longley says

      OMG!! 55 inches in the bedroom??? That is insane! (And sounds super wrong . . . ) I’m so happy I’m not the only one struggling with this!

  3. Julie @ Julie's Eats & Treats says

    YES!!! Like what is with it? It does not need to cover the entire wall for you to see it! Totally agree on this TV thing. Just like I totally agree with these awesomeness of these potatoes!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Right??? Thank you!
