Bridal Registry Hell

John & I set out on Sunday thinking we could get all of our registering done. Wrong! Little did I know that registering in 3 stores for everything you're going to possibly need for the rest of your life, can't be done in 1 day.

We went to Macy's 1st. We couldn't decide on anything & the things we knew we wanted, I wanted to register for at Bed Bath & Beyond. So we embarrassingly turned our scan gun in without having actually scanned anything. After being scolded by the bridal registry associate, we tucked our tails between our legs & left the store.

While we were in the mall, we checked out Pottery Barn & Williams Sonoma. There was nothing for us in Pottery Barn, but we saw a lot of stuff in Williams Sonoma. I think we'll probably set up a registry there later.

So we arrive at Bed Bath & Beyond, ready to scan. 3 hours later we emerge, exhausted. I don't even know what we registered for. It's all a blur. The things we knew we needed, we didn't know what brand to go with. Then there were all the things we felt like we needed, but weren't 100% sure what they did.....

John's done. He's given me clearance to go back to all the stores & register for whatever I want. I just need to take reinforcements this time. I need someone with me who knows what all those kitchen appliances do & what brands to go with.

I think later in May, before I start summer school, we're going to drive down to Atlanta & set up a registry @ Crate & Barrel. We're having trouble finding everyday plates & bedding that we like. Honestly, I just want an excuse to eat at Taqueria Del Sol again. I love you, fried chicken taco!!!

i am kinda obsessed with kitchen gadgets and appliances, so i'd love to go with you for that. we did the crate & barrel atlanta thing too, which i was really happy about (plus you can update your registry online, which made it convenient whenever they add new products and stuff.)
