    My shower was last weekend and most of the gifts were off of the registry. We registered for the keurig coffee maker, but we never expected to get it… and we DID! I was so excited I did a dance ๐Ÿ™‚

    OK so first off all I need to say that I was almost done typing my response when my cat stepped on my laptop and my response disappeared…so I apologize if I posted a random comment somewhere else ๐Ÿ™‚

    We received most of the things on our registries except a few of the bigger items which we have since purchased with gift cards that we got as gifts. However, a TOTALLY RANDOM thing happened! Someone with the exact First and Last name registered at the SAME store for her wedding that was the SAME DAY as our wedding!! Like WTF right???? We had registered with both our names though and she only registered under her’s so I quickly had to get the word out that our registry contained both of our names. My (well our) name isn’t even that common. I asked the store to try and contact her so that she could add her FI’s name so that the confusion would stop, and they said they would try and contact her-but I don’t know if they ever did. So make sure you add both of your names!!

    Even more random…my mom was at a wedding a month after ours and she met a woman who was at that girl (who has my name)’s wedding!! Too Funny!

    Now I am pressing submit before my cat gets anymore ideas.

    @kelmac: LMAO, my cat does that all the time to me!!

    We got almost nothing from our registry, but we don’t come from money so I was really grateful for what we did get.  My Maid/Matron of Honor got us the best gift ever, which we use everyday, so she’s AWESOME.

    Apparently there’s another girl registered at Babies R Us living in the same city as I am, so everytime I go to update the registry I have to make sure the store scans the correct one.  Annoying!  I ended up closing that registry and opening another one under my maiden name just to avoid the confusion!
