    My KitchenAid mixer was the best gift of all time – I literally jumped up and down when I opened the box…never done that before.  

    Our bedding was a pretty phenomenal gift too…I never would have been able to pay as much as much for a comforter/pillows/sheets set as the one on our registry was – but it is absolutely fantastic – SO COMFORTABLE. 

    Both of those gifts were on our registry – and honestly we didn’t get too much that wasn’t…

    @Birdee106:  I am so hoping someone buys us the knives on our registry!!

     

    @strawbs:  Do you use it a lot? I was thinking of putting an ice cream maker on ours, but then I wondered if it would be a lot of work to make and maybe I’d never feel like doing it…

    @kris325:  I thought of asking for a fondue maker, but my SIL has one and hardly ever uses it so I nixed it.

     

    @adoc86:  all you have to do is make the mixture for the ice cream flavor you want, and dump it in the previously frozen spinner to churn it. My only complaint is that it’s loud lol. We’ve used ours a good few times. We just make large batches of ice cream so it’s a long time in between uses XD

    @kris325:  That’s such a nice sentimental wedding gift. My husband is Jewish, and we were given a Hamsa plaque with a blessing for our home from one of his relatives in Israel. I thought that was a beautiful sentimental gift.

    As far as our registry is concerned, my KitchenAid mixer is wonderful. I use it constantly, and we were given the “slicer” attachment with it. Great small appliance!

    I have a few favorites.

    1. The antique crystal glasses from my grandmother.  They’ve been in the family for a long time now and are maybe around 150 years old.  It’s our first family heirloom!

    2. Painting of two bears dancing in the woods painted by the same grandmother.

    3. Mesquite cutting board with torquise inlays.  It’s really cool looking.

    4. My green teapot.  I use it ALL THE TIME!

    All of our wedding gifts were either cash or checks… I have to say the $8000 one was my favorite Wink.

    I loved a lot of our gifts, but my favorite was a surprise from my Mother-In-Law. I have a close relationship with her, and after I put on my dress, she gave me a quilt she had hand-made. She picked out the colors to match our wedding colors and slaved over it for about four months. When she gave it to me, she told me she was so excited that I was going to be her daughter, and I teared up quite a bit.
