Your Money for Nothing and Your Chicks for Free

Registering for your wedding is like a wonderful dream except for the fact that you are tired and hungry and a little overwhelmed. I have heard horror stories about couples taking days to register and the even worse possibility of registering on your own either because your fiance isn't free or doesn't care enough to be bothered. I knew that at least the second nightmare would not belong to me. Kris and I had already made plans to take care of registering together. I am not very good at decisions so having Kris in attendance to help me along was fantastic. Outside of wedding dress shopping registering is probably my favorite wedding activity to date. I loved it! The whole thing was a magical process. With every click of the scanner I felt as if we were painting a picture of our life as husband and wife. These were the plates we were going to eat off of and those were the pans that I would bake our cakes in. I barely noticed the hours tick away. There is a certain euphoria associated with knowing that you are choosing items that you won't have to pay for yourself. However, I do think that we were very considerate and thoughtful when choosing our gifts. The one big splurge item for me was the Cusinart Grind and Brew Coffee Maker! Its the thing that I want the most (besides marrying Kris of course).
Kris was such a good sport about the whole thing. He was patient while I waffled over mixing bowls and he never let on that he was starving. Eventually we did break for lunch and then returned to finish everything up. We even had time to catch a movie that night. We saw The King's Speech which was a fantastic film. You should go see it. We are registered at Bed Bath and Beyond. Look us up :)
