Omg I gotta chill out on the registry creeping!
On Friday, I got on our registries to do a normal purge-and-update (we have been having MUCHO issues with stuff going out of stock, we are cursed!) and I saw that someone had purchased four of our six towels! I almost died I was so excited. The thank-you manager says FI’s great aunt bought them! The invites for EVERYTHING (both showers, bach and wedding) all went out within two weeks of each other, so who knows what it’s actually for. I am SO HAPPY!
But then today I just got on because I’m a creepazoid and I saw someone purchased our trash can! AAAAHHHHH! It’s weird to get so worked up over a trash can, but what can I say – I worked so hard on these registries, and weddings are just weird. Ha! I think that one was my coworker, she is notorious for always buying couples trash cans. Lol!
Anybody else a registry creeper? Can someone talk me out of looking EVERY STINKING DAY?! AH!

I totally am. I can’t help it…and I don’t think it’s going to change! My shower was Saturday and I stalked that thing. I’m sure I’ll do it for the wedding as well!

@kes18: glad i’m not alone! i keep telling myself i will let myself creep until a week before the shower, when most people will be buying gifts – but my showers are back to back Saturdays, and I don’t think I can seriously hold out for 3 weeks! AAHHH. Haha Fiance keeps making fun of me. I texted him today, “SOMEONE BOUGHT OUR TRASH CAN! OMG OMG!” and he was like haha it was *coworker*. Such a weird thing to get jazzed about BUT I AM JAZZED. Goodbye nasty plastic open top trash can!

@TwoStatesBride: my shower is a surprise so i thought of checking every now and then to see if i could figure out the date but decided against it.
a few minutes ago i wanted to check my registry for something and noticed people started buying stuff. i didn’t think i would be excited, but i am much more than i thought.
i still don’t know the date, but i have a guess…..
i’m not going to be snooping now, i want to be excited about the items when i open them.

*raises hand* I am miss pudding pop and a big time registry stalker… I told poor Fi he was going to have to go and chage the password so I can’t do it anymore, lol

I was the whole time – but I didn’t do the thank you manager so I could be surprised at the shower still!

@TwoStatesBride: I actually had to do this to manage my registries, since I registered for my china at two different stores to allow for the maximum convenience of our guests. Every time someone purchased a piece or place setting from one registry, I would delete a corresponding piece or place setting off of the other store’s registry.
Also, my Simple Human, stainless-steel, kitchen trash can was the very first item for which I registered, so I can relate to your excitement. 🙂 (No one ended up purchasing ours, so I ended up buying it, but I did have a gift card and a small store-credit to help offset the cost.)

I look at it all the time! However, most of my friends and family are the kinds of peope to wait until the last minute so nothing has been bought yet 🙁
I honestly never thought it was a faux pas to look at it until I joined WB…oh well, call me a rebel because I’ll probably look at it right up to the wedding lol

@TwoStatesBride: I only peeked once so far.. only one more week until the shower! It’s so tempting… I keep telling myself “But what if something is out of stock?!” It’s just so exciting to finally fill your home with non-hand-me-down items 🙂

haha I was the same way I never thought I would be so excited over a pizza pan and clock (the first items that were purchased from our registry) It only got worse as we got closer to the wedding.

Haha I’ve looked a bunch. Someone just bought the Catchphrase game! YAYAYAYAY.

@IzzyBear: I thought my family would wait too, but they haven’t! My first shower isn’t for another two and a half weeks, and already 5 things have been purchased. I’m surprised people are even RSVP’ing so early (we have 8 cards with 6 yes’s in so far!), but most of them are people I’m less familiar with on FI’s side, so maybe that’s it. 😉

Oh man, I can’t wait until people start buying things from my registry! I was on there last night adding a couple things (after my friend and bridesmaid told me I didn’t have enough on there), but nothing has been purchased yet because my wedding and shower invites haven’t gone out yet, and the shower dates have only just been picked.
I’m sure once things start going I’ll be creeping it often.

I stalked the WHOLE time, and got ridiculously excited with every purchase.
I’m finding that stalking the baby registry isn’t as much fun though.
