I know, it’s terrible to look at your registry and see what you are getting! But I can’t help myself, I’m totally a peeker. Although I am doing my best not to peek at the “who its from” list, I feel like that spoils it a bit more for me. And I do like to monitor to make sure a good mix of items/price points stays available
Today someone purchased the KITCHENAID MIXER off our registry! I’m totally blown away, that was sort of our “pie in the sky” most expensive item… and it is one of the first things being purchased. Glad I went for broke and put the satin nickel one on there instead of the white.
It was off of our Amazon registry and they marked it as purchased somewhere else. I have a few suspects of who it might have been, but the person put in a fake name, which is kind of funny. I’m thinking it was either a coworker (or maybe a few went in on it) – she was emailing me this morning asking what I really really wanted off the registry. I didn’t tell her the Kitchenaid, I named a few things at lower price points. But she (and the colleagues she would probably go in with) is very generous, so it wouldn’t shock me.
Could be my mom (although I sort of doubt it, but maybe – but she’d have to transport it and that would be an issue) or my bridesmaids too.
Eeeeeek!!! I wonder if it will be shipped or we’ll have to wait for it!!!
Alright, all you registry peekers – fess up… what have you been excited/anxious to see has been purchased off of yours?

Also, I have on idea why the returns aren’t working on my post… I’ve put space between the paragraphs. Odd.

Yeah, I totally did this. I had my heart set on a GelPro mat and KitchenAid mixter add-ons and was checking weekly.
The GelPro is totally worth it too if anyone’s looking at it.

I ruined our Christmas presents by stalking ours, haha. Actually, we thought FMIL was purchasing a bunch of stuff off of our registry and felt really bad, but it was actually FFIL and his wife buying them for Christmas.

@NAvery: I peek at our registry every week. Not that I expect anything to be bought this early, but I’m wondering if anyone is going to buy the pink Nintendo 3DS I put on there! And FI picked a Playstation Vita to put on it as well. LOL

I do! Except now it’s my baby regustry I’m stalking instead of the wedding one. Invites for my shower haven’t gone out yet. so it’s been easy to figure out who bought what, haha. It was also our situation where the most expensive item was purchased first – for us it was the travel system (stroller carseat combo), which my mom planned on getting but my MIL beat her to it, lol. So my mom got us our convertible carseat and a playpen, and my grandparents bought our crib mattress. I love registry stalking, lol. I’ve had a tough pregnancy so seeing the stuff get bought always cheers me up.

I’m really terrible. We only made a small registry at Macy’s, but I work there in the home department. The temptation to peek is overwhelming! But now I know that we’re getting at least four placesettings of our china, so I’m quite excited 🙂
Still, I wish I could keep it all a surprise.

I am so proud of myself for not looking & seeing what we’re getting.. however I still feel like I’m a stalker. Every Monday I check and see the number of gifts bought (usually people shop over the wknd, so I check on Mondays). So while I don’t know exactly what we’re getting.. I know as of today 34 items have been purchased from Target & 13 from Bed Bath & Beyond 🙂 My FI has told me countless times I better not be snooping.. and I haven’t been! I did let my mom look at it, there was a lot of “oohs and ahhs” when she was scrolling through, I hope that’s a good sign!
My shower is Sunday, I’m sooo excited!

The place I registered at emails me every time something is purchased off of our registry so there is really no surprises lol I got an email the other day that someone bought the most expensive item off of our registry which was a set of pots! I was shocked as we thought no one was going to get them for us! I have a feeeling it was my mom that bought them but I will find out in the beginning of April 🙂
