- Wedding: July 2010
My sister (MOH) hosted my bridal shower at the beginning of May in Boston. Since I currently live in Cali, she asked that all gifts be mailed to my home address and that people just print our a picture of their gift for the shower. So when I returned home to Cali after the shower, I opened all of the boxes that had arrived at my house. I checked what I had received against the list of gifts that had been “given” at my shower, and I noted down any additions to the list from people who had not been able to attend the shower but had given a gift anyways.
Well… at least I thought I did. It turns out that I forgot to write down one of the gifts. The woman who gave the gift is one of my mom’s friends. She called my mom the other day b/c she was worried that her gift hadn’t been received. At that time I went back and checked the gift recepts from all of my gifts. (Luckily I saved them!) I found that I had received this woman’s gift, but had forgotten to note it down. I therefore had also failed to send her a thank you note. So of course I’m going to put her thank you note in the mail now ASAP. Should I mention the mess-up in the thank you note? Or should I just leave things as is?
