when nate and i were engaged, we were told that we needed to "register" so that people could buy us gifts for our wedding. at first, it seemed like an awesome idea...but then quickly turned sour as we strolled through the aisels of target feeling weird about pointing a gun at anything and everything we "needed" for our "new life". i mean, do we really NEED a swan salt & pepper shaker?
we left with approximately 7 things on our list... fail.
and as we started out our life together, we realized there was a reason for these registries. people you love, want to get you started off on the right foot, and by looking at our broken shelves and cracked plates, i now understand.
SO that being said, when the registry topic came up this time around for baby nelson. we figured, it's a good idea. i mean we have no idea what we are getting ourselves into. what is a boppy anyways? I have a feeling that there are some people that can help us out in this department.
so I was delighted when i heard about myregistry.com.
basically, it means that i can surf the web and anytime i see something that makes my heart melt, or seems too practical to be true, i can click "add to my registry". brilliant!
for anyone who is curious, here's what I picked out so far.
