Right after our wedding shower last year, JEGs and I decided that we were not going to use any of our gifts until we moved out of the apartment and into our new house.
The thinking behind this was we had everything that we basically needed to survive- plates, cups, silverware, etc- but they were all hand-me-downs from our parents and various garage sale findings. We registered for all new stuff and we really loved the idea of having all this new stuff to still be new when we moved into our new home.
That's a lot of newness in one paragraph. OLD. Just to counteract all the newness. Moving on...
In the meantime we Jenga'd that ish into the wash closet and there they have been for the past 11 months. Until this morning when I decided to attack the closet and begin packing.
Holy hell, I forgot what we were given as gifts..
I have a punch bowl! And a dip serving set! And I am 95% sure that the big purple box on the right holds a new shower curtain and towels!
a can opener? Did we even register for that? MOTHER OF PEARL THERE IS A TOASTER TOO!
I cannot wait for moving day. If nothing else to open and really appreciate all these "new" gifts!
Oh, and I've gotten a couple e-mails asking how packing was going...
Umm... it's going well.
Always & Forever,
