In other news, we are down to 28 days and I feel like I should be doing something, but can’t really think of anything that needs to be done. I do need to do the seating chart, but I don’t have the final guest list and won’t get it till tomorrow, so I’m waiting on that.
Music, flowers, food, cake, dress-all done. We did so much early that now it’s like relaxation time. Which then stresses me out because I hear so much from other people that go married and how much they had to do and they were running around trying to finish things. I guess I’ll just take my blessing in disguise and not complain.
So, funny story. I like to check our registries to see what’s been bought and what hasn’t and all that jazz. I have another shower next weekend so things are starting to get bought up and we’re getting excited. Who knew luggage and a particular rolling pin I wanted would make me so happy?
But then I get to the bottom of one registry and I’m confused. There sits TWO waffle makers. TWO. Guess what? We didn’t register for ANY waffle maker. We don’t need, or even particularly want, a waffle maker.
They aren’t cheap ones. They’re actually rather pricey. But we didn’t ask for them. So this means someone got our registry from the store, decided they didn’t like our choices, went and bought two of these things and then had the cashier scan the registry so they showed up. Wants: 0. Received:2.
Did this happen to anyone else? I don’t know whether to be hurt because this person had the nerve to decide our choices weren’t good enough or if the person just sincerely thought this was a good idea for us and wanted to make sure we had two.
—I apologize if this was someone else’s favorite gift from their wedding, but it’s not what we want because we don’t really eat or make waffles and these things are HUGE. Our future apartment will not be a sprawling, spacious place. It will probably be somewhat tiny and we won’t have the room.
I know we can return them, but it’s still weird.
Oh well. I might find out who got them for us at the shower and I will feign happiness and surprise and talk about how now I won’t have to wait to make one at a time.
PS- I was watching Father of the Bride and almost cried at the part where he misses his daughter throwing the bouquet and doesn’t get to say goodbye before she leaves for her honeymoon. So sad.
Off to convince the “sick” fiance that he will live and it’s only a cough. Men are a little wimpy when sick.
