Our Wedding Registry

 So last Saturday, January 29th, Neil and I set out to register for wedding gifts.  I was very excited about this, because it kind of made all of this wedding stuff real!  Plus, we would be picking out things that would be used in our home for the next 50 or 60 years, so this day was kind of a big deal. 

So we began.  Kohl's was our first stop, and I quickly learned this was going to be a long day.  Everything we were picking up had to be analyzed by me.  Like cloth napkins for example, they were not just any cloth napkins, they were the napkins that would be at our table for Thanksgiving dinner or family gatherings for years to come.  So needless to say anxiety kept me from having fun.  Eventually, I stopped the over analyzing behavior and just started grabbing things, and began to have fun.  Neil, of course was the ruler of the scanner gun, but he did let me scan a few things for giggles.

It took about 5 hours to register for everything.  The places we have registered are, Kohl's, Bed Bath and Beyond, Macy's, and Target.  Here are a few pictures that captured the weekend.

This was the first thing he scanned...Needless to say he was excited to use the gun.

  1. Looks like you had lots of fun registering! Just wanted to caution you on Target. We really wanted to register there too but they have a terrible return policy. If you need to return something but someone doesn't give you a receipt they won't even let you return it for store credit or exchange it for anything. I ran into that with a few things in the past. I know it kept Rachel and John David from registering for baby stuff. Just an FYI :)
