The App That Changed My Life

Yes an App changed my life . . .
Do you have a dilemma in your house?
Or a bit of a disagreement going on with your darling man? 

There has been one going on here.  The Cowboy and I just can't agree on where the new flat screen t.v. should go.  

His idea was something like this . . .

My idea was something more like this . . .

Well a little like this.  Not exactly but not above the fireplace.  Do you know how long I have waited to have a fireplace again?  I so dreamed of decorating my mantle.  And then it happened we got to move in October and I got a fireplace.  Yea.  The only dilemma was in May we got a flat screen. 
Now at the time I was so super happy about the t.v. because it replaced a dinosaur big screen.  You know the kind that is huge and takes up the entire space and it sticks out almost 3 feet into the room and is just gag me ugly!  It's gone. 

But now we're in this dilemma because I want the mantle to look like this . . .
Yes I know my picture is a little small.  But I was working with what I had!  I loved my mantle at Christmas!  We were so busy I never took pics till after Christmas and never posted them!   But here it is in all it's glory with part of my collection of Santa's. 

So you see we compromised.  But the tv didn't end up on a table.  It ended up smack dab in the middle of the fireplace!  Yep no fires around here. 

And the Cowboy loves it there.  The good thing is it really hasn't been cold enough for a fire. 

We're still in this little bit of a 'discusion' I'll call it.  Luckily we haven't had the money for the mounting bracket to hang it so I am still decorating the mantle. 

But yesterday he compromised and lit a fire . . .

Isn't it the prettiest fire?  I was in the kitchen and I heard a noise and couldn't figure out what it was. 
I asked.  He answered "It's the fire."  I said "What" and came into the room and yes what I was hearing was the crackling of a fire. 

Have you figured it out?  Look really, really close.  It is the t.v.  still smack dab in the middle of the fireplace with a video of a charming fire.   All compliments of an App on his Kindle!  It lasts a little over an hour.  You can just replay it over and over if you want. 

I just think that this is the coolest thing!  I still want to talk him into putting it on a piece of furniture but for now this works!

So don't you think it's cool?  I think this is one of those things that needs to be shared.  I know there are lots of you out there with the same dilemma. 

So I am linking with all the parties.  Because it is a Thrifty idea,  And because it is one we ladies old and young can share and appreciate, and because it is my favorite thing today, and just one of those little things, and it is just really a cool idea and on and on.

So I bet you've already decided to try it.  So has an app
changed your life?

Take a pic and let me see! 

Have a wonderful day enjoying your Journey,
