We first registered around Christmas, and one of our gifts was from our registry. After that, I checked it somewhat obsessively for a couple weeks. When my shower draws near, I suspect I’ll start stalking it again. And lord help me once the invites go out! My fiance razzes me all the time about how nosy I get when it comes to presents – I’m completely unable to resist the siren song of our registry!

I posted about this a few weeks ago.  I’m the worst!  I check it once in the morning and again at night.  I can’t stop!  My shower is on Sunday, I’ve stopped checking it because I realize that either very few people are coming with a gift or a lot of guests didn’t use the registry to buy the gifts (I’ve had people say, “oops, what I bought you was off the registry but I forgot to print it out and have the cashier mark it as purchased” So I’m probably getting 4 toaster ovens).  Try not to stalk it too much, the surprise is fun, but obviously I’m a hypocrite!

My shower is Sunday so especially this week I find myself checkin it multiple times a day. Also on Crate and Barrel and Macy’s they have this Thank you note manager that tells you who bought what gift. I am trying to not look at that this week so I can be suprised by some gifts 😉

I check mine about once a week.  The days leading up to my showers, I checked more frequently.  My FI says it’s cheating. But, we asked for it, so I don’t think it is! 🙂

My shower is next week (I’m pretty sure–it’s a surprise but all signs are pointing that way) so I checked today because my mom asked me to print it our for her but I’m going to try hard not too check before the shower from here on in!

I am the WORST…my FI hasn’t caught on yet.  I check the thank you note manager too on Macy’s and Crate and Barrel!

I peeked one time.  I just couldn’t resist it any longer.  I kept telling myself I was only going to add the one item I wanted to add, and then I would quickly log out and not peek. But I peeked…

I check ours at least once a day.  And now that my shower is coming up I definitely check it more often!  My excuse… I want to make sure we still have a good amount of gifts at price-points for our gurests to purchase.

My first shower is tomorrow so I have been stalking like crazy! Part of the reason I started stalking is because we registered around Christmas and I noticed that some of our items are being discontinued so we either have to register for some alternative OR we have to go buy it ourselves so we can make sure we get it!

Plus… I really like guessing who is buying the stuff that is disappearing off the register 🙂

My bridesmaids are doing a surprise shower, and I only know this because they refuse to talk to me about it what-so-ever. I’ve been watching my registry like crazy!! I’m using it as my way of guestimating the date of my shower. The closer it gets the more things will come off!!

I also love knowing that we’re getting something, but now knowing who its from! Its a little sneaky feeling like your peeking at your christmas presents before christmans morning, but its soo much fun!
