Hi pups! Hope ya'll had a great weekend. We spent Friday and Saturday in temple for Yom Kippur (#leastfavoriteJewishholiday #constanthunger #oopsIbrokethefastat330pm) but yesterday we got to do something really fun....
We went REGISTERING!!!
Our first stop was Crate & Barrel - they just came out with new items the other day and when I got the catalogue in the mail, I got so excited I wanted to go there immediately!
I LOVE looking through registries and seeing the things people choose to start their lives together :) so I thought it might be fun to show you some of the things I'm most excited for!
You all know me... I cannot do anything boring or simple. I love the idea of basic white plates so I can dress them up with different colored funky placemats, napkins, etc, but I couldn't just do a plain round white one and call it a day. Instead, I chose these for our new every day plates and I am OBSESSED! The wavy edges are so pretty and delicate, but the plates themselves are sturdy and large. We also registered for the matching salad plates, but I didn't love the matching bowls, so we're going with basic white round bowls instead. I am also excited that there are matching platters!
Speaking of funky napkins... I loved these. I am such a sucker for bright colors and this napkin print just made me so happy. I think they'll look so nice on our white plates with a big chunky white napkin ring at future dinner parties!
One of the things we were MOST excited to register for was a rice cooker. These days I consider myself to be a pretty good cook but for some reason, the thing I burn EVERY TIME is basic white rice! I've wanted a rice cooker for ages and am crossing my fingers for one of these :)
For the most part, I registered for real necessities, but when I saw this awesome "Table in a Bag" I had to add it to our list. It's so clever - a fold up picnic table in a handy little bag! This will be awesome for the beach, picnics, or nights at the Hollywood Bowl. Such a fun little gift!
We were there for a little over an hour and R was PSYCHED the whole time because - duh - he got to shoot the registry gun. Men... so predictable :) He only made gun noises ("peeeee-OW!" "peeee-OW!") a couple times though so overall he was relatively well-behaved :)
Also could not resist making him put his face near the "ramekin" signs. He's such a trooper :)
C&B was only the first stop on our list, I think we are also going to register at Macy's and Bloomingdales. In the meantime, I would love some advice from all of you... where did you register? What were your favorite things you registered for and what would you change if you could? Any and all advice is appreciated :) thanks ya'll!
