Isn’t it fun?!  I first noticed when a box showed up on our doorstep.  It was an awesome camp stove (MSR Superfly) and titanium backpacking cookware from Fi’s dad.  Such a great gift!

Enjoy the wine and cheese 🙂

My Future Mother-In-Law randomly buys us gifts off our registry and gives them to us!  They’re little things (like utensils and cookie cutters) but it gets me really excited everytime.

I realized the first gifts were bought maybe a week and a half or so ago. I was really excited because I kept seeing posts on here that gifts weren’t shown purchased on the registry up until a couple days before the shower. My first shower is not for another two weeks.

Now I just need to force myself to stop checking all the time! I’d like to be surprised, but the temptation of looking is too fun.

When I received one in the mail!

A sorority sister of mine had heard about our engagement, and was expecting a baby. Since she knew ahead of time that she couldn’t make the trip for our wedding, she sent a card and gift via Target’s website.

It snowballed from there.

Well my Future Mother-In-Law purchased our wedding gifts the week after the engagement and had them sent to us. The first time I noticed gifts (not purchased from FMIL) were purchased was when I was updating my registry a few months back, I noticed one of my food processors was picked up =)…

We have a shower in about a month, too.  Our first gift was purchased about a week ago… I was adding an item to our BB&B registry and noticed a "1" in the purchased column, so exciting!!  It is a 45-piece set of flatware, which I am really excited about.  It just makes everything seem so real!
