I appreciate all the advice we have received as far as registry items. It is quite the daunting task, if I do say so myself. SO much fun, but so many what ifs, which I am not a fan of. For example, several have suggested some form of storage item. I agree, every place needs storage. However, when arriving at the storage isle and asking the fiance to point out anything he feels we would need, he replies with the fact that he has lived out of storage containers for the past six months and I have several in my home already. I contemplated this, thinking of anything else we would need, got overwhelmed, and moved on, ha! I will tackle this task another day and be oh so thankful you can update online.
It was fun though, seriously. We went down every isle and at this time have four end tables for our living room. Decision making is not my thing, don't worry I will be removing some soon. It makes me sad we really don't have any other registry outings. Our finally registry stop we did completely online. But, enough of that, here are some favorites from the day:
|My shoes have been in roller bins under my bed for five years. I am kind of ready to have them set out in a closet all nice and neat, space willing of course.|
|Firepit? Yes please!|
|When you are marrying a Boschen, one must have an abundance amount of games.|
|Card table, always a nice thing to have.|
|Accent pillows are what pulls a room together.|
|We need us some luggage. My friend Wirth has this set and I love it. We registered for pieces we felt we needed rather than an entire set. It is gray, has four wheels, and it's just pretty.|
Now, I promise there are little, boring items on there, too (although much needed). Drying rack, cleaning supplies, shelf liners for the kitchen, kitchen towels, an egg slicer... But, those pictures are not as captivating, not to mention not found online.
So, I leave you with one question that has been bothering me. To canister or not to canister? We have registered for a few kitchen appliances which will have to be out in the kitchen (coffee maker, KitchenAid...) and I don't want a cluttered kitchen. I see the convenience of having your flour, sugar, and other items at easy access and there are some cute canisters out there. However, is it necessary? Should I put these things in the cabinet so there is one less thing to take up space? What are your thoughts?
