So…I totally should not be this excited. But the first things were just bought off of our registry! I’m totally surprised–we have an engagement party in about a month, but our registries aren’t listed anywhere (we didn’t want people to think we were looking for gifts). But some people must have looked them up themselves. I can’t help but give a little, "Yay!"
(And because I know the hive will be wondering: the first things purchased were a wine decanter and a set of olive-handled cheese knives, both from Williams-Sonoma.)
When did you notice your first gifts had been bought?

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 🙂

Ha! Hadn’t even realized it was wine and cheese. Wow, I’m a little dense tonight.

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!
