It is funny what things occur in my life that really ground me into reality, and this, amidst all of the wedding plans, has probably been the greatest eye opener that yes, in fact, we are getting married!
My parents loved the Dipos, and I wholeheartedly agree, I sure am marrying into an incredible family.
Today, Morgan and I began the registry registration... or something like that. We walked into Macy's and after a cup of hot chocolate, some free wine glasses and a few complimentary magazines, we were sent into the store with one of the deadliest guns known to a bride: a gift scanner.
So you would think I would have gone to town with so many options, my fiance at my side, and a quality scanner in our grasp; but rather, I froze! I couldn't decide, I couldn't make up my mind at all. Did I want this china with the thin silver band or the one with the silver band and a touch of floral? Did I want teflon pans, or stainless steel? I paced, I panicked, I spilled hot chocolate all over my face and white sweater, and Morgan kept asking if we were ever going to scan anything, as I looked wide-eyed over my wonderland. Finally, we began, and as we poured into the task, I kept reminding Morgan that we were looking for the best this and the best that, and he asked a painfully truthful question: 'Do you only think it's the best because it costs the most?'
We have many more stops to make at Macy's before we go public, but we will probably end up at REI, Pottery Barn, and William Sonoma, though maybe Crate and Barrel.. If you have any suggestions on places to go, things to register for, oh please send them my way. I feel like a kid at the North Pole who has been told to choose one present to bring home and is so torn, they just run around like crazy until Christmas has passed.
Ok. Weird example, but you must know the feeling... No?
