Ok I know this post has been done before, but we are super, I mean super, excited about one of the gifts we recieved on our registry and I wanted to share:
we got an hawaii shaved ice machine and it is awesome!!! it is 5 degrees and snowing outside and we are using it becuase we love it. I am not talking about a snow cone machine, this is a industrial shave ice machine. It makes ‘snow cones’ that just melt in your mouth with every bite – super soft fluffy ice shavings!!! If you have ever been to hawaii I am sure you have had one of these shaved ice treats (if you are going be sure to have one) You will never want another snow cone after this baby.
Anyway, we didn’t think anyone would buy it for us off our registry, but they did, woohoo!!!
So what have you registered for that you are super excited about? or that is very different/unique? did you get it yet? do you think you will?

We registered for all boring house things, it was the off registry gifts I loved most. (Not that I don’t love our house gifts, they were very much needed!)
Our friend got us a personalized egg plate. I collect egg plates, and she put our names and wedding date on it. It was very unexpected and so different! My siblings got us a weekend at a B&B, which was great. We had a really rough year (health reasons), so it was awesome to be able to take a mini vacation and not worry about paying for it. My sister even surprised us with a gift certificate to a local restaurant when we got there.

Well my Fiance insisted we register for a can cooler which is kind of different. Just an electric gadget that chills your can of soda…I thought we had one of those already, the fridge! He is soo excited about it, he has mentioned it everyday since we registered. Haha.

Okay this is totally lame but I am really hoping someone buys the vacuum cleaner on our registry, lol. Our current one is pathetic and we just don’t have the extra money to buy a new one right now.

@kingytobe: We got it from our amazon.com registry. There are a bunch on there in all different price ranges. Just read the reviews really well before you pick the one you want! 🙂
@linguo42: I don’t think a vacuum is lame at all. Actually I was just talking about how the majority of the gifts we really really want to get are probably the least fun. aka a vacuum or a rug or a new pillow, but that is the stuff we really need and would be really excited about as well!
my brother’s favorite gift that he got was a nice trash can!

FI’s dad bought us 150 silver eagles as our “first investment” they are 1oz coins that are 99.99% silver. even though this is probably something we will never cash in on – we have been religiously checking the price of silver. haha up .33 cents today!
best – most unique wedding gift ever.

@Coloradolov: LOL I bought this pewter finish trash can off my friend’s registry, she literally gushed to me after the wedding about how that was one of the things on the registry that she was most hoping to get.
