Out with the old, in with the new.

After 3.5 years of having our DVD player and home theater system (nothing fancy, just some speakers) and developing a deep hatred for it (mostly just the DVD player- only worked for 75% of DVD's and automaticly put captions on all the time) we finally broke down and bought a new DVD player and home theater system. Mind you, this was no impulse buy. We talked about getting a new one for at least 2 years and we made 2 trips to Best Buy to scope out the merchandise. We found ours at Costco (we couldn't actually buy from Best Buy- their return policy is beyond lame. Seriously, a 25% restocking fee? Please.) and broke in our new purchase by watching the newish James Bond movie. We bought the movie has soon as it came out last year only to be disappointed that our lame DVD player wouldn't play it. Grr. Anyway, we watched the movie and it was great. Just a year later than expected. Here are the before and after pictures of our set-up, since I know you are so interested :)
The old set-up. Silver DVD and speakers. Woo.

Our new set-up. Not sure about the flowers on the right, but I had to get rid of the cd stuff and that was the only thing in our house to fill that space. It works for now though.
