I was surprised we didn’t get any of our flatware!

I wish we had gotten towels too 🙁 I guess it’s our own fault for having a destination wedding and no registry (the polite thing to have done in my mind!). I still thought some of our really close family would have bought us items regardless of no registry. I feel guilty saying this haha!! We have a huge family though and only got 4 gifts. It was wonderful to have everyone on vacation with us though, so I wouldn’t have changed a thing! (not even for presents…haha)

Nobody bought any of our cutlery! All our place settings of china were bought, and people got us some other pieces in our pattern that we didn’t even register for, but no eating utensils!

The idea of eating off our beautiful new Kate Spade dishes with my old crappy IKEA forks and knives still makes me chuckle…needless to say Darling Husband and I used one of the gift cards to get ourselves our new cutlery.

We didn’t get any of our dishes we registered for – which was surprising. The “sort of a joke” thing we registered for but really wanted was the complete series of ALF on dvd… no one bought that either! If you knew our group of friends, this would be surprising to you too!
