Today we tackled our wedding registry. In theory, this should be the funnest part of the whole deal. Point & shoot at all the things you want, and 10 months from now they magicaly arrive at your doorstep with a big ol' bow on them. We registered at 3 places to give our guests a few options:
We got off to a great start...scanning our little hearts away. "Oooh that would be nice" and "I've always wanted one of these!" Corey was having a great time with his new friend, the scan gun.
I was approaching it way more seriously than I should have. Over thinking things, as usual. We are currently in an apartment in the city, but we hope to have a house before the wedding, so I was trying to visualize our theoretical dream home and decorate it in my mind. And while the fun things are nice to have, I was worried more about the essentials. The things we need. Like Egyptian cotton sheets, for example.
I've never been too concerned about the thread count of my sheets, but people swear by these beauties, so I went for it. By our third hour of flashing the little red line over bar code after bar code, my mind started going crazy and Corey started getting hungry. Uh oh. ((remember to always feed the boy, and take breaks in between stores! You'll thank me later!)) I started to worry about things like "what if everyone goes to Macy's, then no one will get the Target stuff" and "should we register for some similar items at the different stores so we are guaranteed to get the stuff we really want?" I am no registry expert, and what I thought was right was far from an educated guess.
As in every other decision-making step of this whole wedding process, we did what was right for us. We registered for the things we wanted or would like to have, and we'll be thankful for whatever we get. And thank goodness you can always alter your registries online!
On an unrelated note, I am humbled and a bit baffled by my baby blog's first big achievement: The Liebster Award!
Given to me by the lovely Lay over at The Next Chapter (go check her out!), the Liebster Award is apparently given to up and coming blogs who have less than 200 followers to help bring some love to their blog.
The Rules are as follows:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog
2. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you
3. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
4. Hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers
Now it is my turn to pass it on to some of my new blog buddies! I would like to share this honor with some of my favorite up and coming blogs, and hope that you go pay them a visit!
Hope all my wonderful blog friends are having a fabulous Saturday night!
