Registering for Gifts

So, Matt and I registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond last night and I have to say that I am a registering pro. The sales lady woman explained to us what we were suppose to do and she told us that it would take us 2-3 hours to register. She handed us the scanner thingy and we went to. It was lots of fun! I got to pick colors for my bathroom and kitchen and living room and such and it was buckets of fun! I was in charge of the scanner thing and I just started scanning all sorts of things that I wanted. I didn't realize that there were so many things that I could possible need or want that I don't have. I've been living off of Marie for so long, that I forgot that most of the stuff in her condo belongs to her. Anyway, we are registering pros because what "should" have taken 2 hours, took us less than an hour. We are both very quick decision makers, so if we liked something, we scanned it and that was that.

The beauty of registering is that you can register for whatever you want, as many times as you want because people won't necessarily shop there for your gift anyway! In light of that, I picked out a bunch of stuff that I don't actually need:
-a pink KitchenAid (I want a kitchenaid, but not necessarily a pink one and I thought it was fun!)
-A waffle iron that is all self timed and turny like the ones in the caf
-a bread maker (because when am I actually going to make bread?)
-four bath mats (I'll have two bathrooms, but I couldn't pick between bath mats so...)
-A palm tree lamp (this was a Matt pick because it was so funny)
-An air purifier (this was in tribute to Ross)
-Three tablecloths (We only have one table, so I don't know what we will do with three table clothes)

The list goes on, but you get the idea.

In conclusion, registering is fun! I want to do it again. Luckily, I think that Matt and I will also register somewhere else for big furniture. Yeah!
