What Is Yours Sitting On?

My parents are getting a new TV soon, and being the wonderful recyclers that they are, offered us their old one...and the solid oak entertainment center it's sitting in!  WOW is that thing heavy!  We've been measuring and considering if the center would fit, and it has me thinking about where televisions normally sit.  My grandparents had one one the kitchen counter.  My 7th grade science teacher had one on an arm on the wall.  We have one downstairs in a $99 cardboard/plywood entertainment center from Freddy's.  (Hey, I was setting up my first apartment, and I still love the cherry wood color.  It's held up pretty well!)

What kind of tv stand do you use?

CSN is offering a $45 gift certificate to one lucky reader!  It's good for anything, in any store...but not shipping.  Because that's not sold in their store.

I'm in a silly mood today.  To be eligible, answer this question:

What's the best movie you watched at home recently?

I'll close the comments Friday night and pick a winner!  If I don't hear back...I'll pick another one!

(For an extra entry, tell me how you first found me.  I'm curious.)

We just watched "How to Train Your Dragon," and it's one of my favorites.

Honestly I'm not sure how I first found you...... Maybe from One Pretty Thing?

Definitely Despicable Me...but How to Train Your Dragon was pretty fabulous, too!

I think I found you...in a dark place...and then I probably kicked you in the face. Sorry about that. ;-)

I really enjoyed "Salt" surprisingly... and FYI, our TV is on the wall... and I will never go back, it is too fabulously out of the way in that place.

What I Did Today said...

We put our tv in an armoir. I like being able to hide it. :) The last good movie I watched....hm.... White Christmas. :)
I've watched Inception, Prince of Persia and Shrek Ever After more recently, but none of those are as awesome as White Christmas, imo.

What I Did Today said...

I found you when I was reading one of Thalita Dol's posts. You had left a comment for her and I clicked on your name. Voila! Here I am.

We watched "Little Princess", the one with Shirley Temple. I thought I'd be bored, but it was really good.

Su said...

Oooh, and I found you when you commented on my website.
BTW, my TV is now on a box that my husband fashioned out of 2x4s and plywood. We bought 6 Lack tables from ikea at $7 each to hack into a tv stand plus shelf for dvd players, gaming consoles etc. However, we haven't put it all together yet :)

Our tv is sitting on a craftsman style table that my husband had in his bedroom as a kid. That table would look so much better without all that electronics equipment on it!

Best movie? We've been watching way too much of the Dexter series. that's a train wreck! But I did watch The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, and that was very enjoyable!

Recently enjoyed movie: White Christmas.

Found you: when they read in your family's records at church. Found your blog when you told me I could find a recipe on it I think.

Your sister's answer made me laugh!

Sara said...

I'd say How to Train Your Dragon. We Redboxed it and loved it so much that it was one of my Christmas presents. We're watching it again tomorrow!

Blogwise, I first found you through your sister's blog. In real life, I first found you at girl's camp. I think. It's been so long, I don't even know!

We also recently watched "Salt" and I enjoyed it!

And I found you from that face-kicking twin of yours:)
