Wedding registry!

It's not online yet, but.... we got quite a bit done today. The fine china, the flatware, the stemware....

Yeah. We hit the Kate Spade pretty hard. It was the first china that had either of us going "ooh", let alone both....

Also registered for casual "china" - matte black and matte ivory with square plates. And a new toaster oven, because ours is crap.

I'm actually making an effort to not register for what we don't need. We definitely need new cookie sheets, as ours suck and I like baking cookies. We need air-tight canisters - our are cute, but not airtight. We don't need a breadmaker, etc., and we have limited space.

I wish there was a way to say "Just this stuff - and if you want to give more, please make it cash, so we can fix up this house. We need an inexpensive pantry cabinet, not a bread machine."

Anyway. Accomplished that and exchanging Elayna's too-big birthday-gift jeans at the Gap; two more pairs of jeans, plus two really cute shirts that were actually on sale for $1.99 each. And I bought myself a 1950s-housewife style halter dress, because it has been four months since I have owned an article of clothing that fit me, excepting the jeans. The shirts are all too big now; they drape funny. I actually want to go back to Anthropologie now and get one of the shirts I tried on after all. So yeah. I splurged. Because I have the self-denial thing going on. I'll wander through a store picking up stuff I like, but then I turn around and put it all back and we just get the stuff for Yendi and Elayna. So I got myself something. *belligerent look*

And now mermaidblue is taking me to Michael's Crafts to get patches for Elayna's older jeans. She always wears a hole in the right knee. We're figuring cute flowers and ladybugs and stuff will punch 'em up.
