    Yup! I’ve been checking everyday too! Nearly everything has been bought and there’s still a month left until the wedding. The item I wanted the most – a Cuisinart Automatic Espresso Maker – has been bought and I’m so excited to start making my own lattes!

    I really didn’t think I would be, but I’m a total registry stalker. My Fiance works at home and I don’t, so here’s what our afternoon usually goes like lately, via text message:

    Him: Six RSVPs and UPS! Three packages!

    Me: Cake stand, Fiestaware bowls, green towels?

    Him: You’ve been looking at the registry again.

    Me: That’s why you’re allowed to open the presents when I’m not home.

    He was really amazed at how great I was at guessing what we’d gotten until he figured out I live on our registry. (We took the Macy’s “green” option of no gift wrapping, so it’s not like he’s sitting at home tearing into beautifully wrapped presents every afternoon… just opening boxes.)

    My shower is next weekend too, and I have TOTALLY been doing this, every day I check LOL!!!  With mine, I’m so sad that everyone is going to one store and not the other because I have all the good stuff on the other registry, ahhhh!  Not too much has been bought on mine, but I figure people are either last minute, or some will gift cash since that seems to be happening in my family lately… either way, then I can go buy what I need 🙂

    My shower is one week from tomorrow. I am trying my very best to behave and not sneak a peek at the registry. I wasn’t even thinking about it until I was talking to my mom yesterday and she told me not to look at it. Thanks Mom, I had forgot all about it until she said that.

    I admit I do it too! haha. I was sooo exited when our first items were being bought! One of my girls said the other day that it’s “cheating and would ruin the suprise”. Haha I dont think so at all! I registered for it, so I already know what I’m getting, I just don’t know what will come from who. So the suprise is still there. Right??

    I’m really bad about it ever since one thing was bought I have been checking every day. I just did my daily registry stalk and for my surpirse someone between yesterday and today has bought us mixing bowls, wooden spoons, muffin pan, loaf pan, chopping boards, and the steal paper towel holder. I gotta say this has made my day. Our first was our dishes which we got in the mail this week so exciting and last week it said someone got our cuinsart slow cooker and salad set. My shower is still over a month away.

    My shower is tomorrow and I have been stalking like crazy! I know I won’t be surprised at which gifts I am getting (but I picked them out in the first place!!) but I will be surprised to see who gives what!

    I stalk mine too.. so far like 40 items have been bought so I don’t want to list them all. A lot of them I haven’t actually received.. I assume people are bringing them to the wedding.

    Haha I just got excited tonight because I saw someone purchased our toaster oven.
