We have all the kitchen stuff, so most of our registry is upgrading items that we already have. I am MOST excited about everything that we registered for at Crate & Barrel! The kitchen napkins, rings, and coasters to be specific! Haha, so strange, I know, but I think it will tie our home together. I am also hoping for some of the interesting vases that we registered for! 😉

Here’s a pic of our napkins and a couple of the vases…

We’re fairly certain that FI’s grandmother will be gifting us with the Dyson for our shower since she bought his brother/SIL one for theirs. If, for some reason, she doesn’t get it for us, we will be purchasing it after our wedding.

Something we actually need, a new comforter and soft sheets. Right now we both use seperate throws and our sheets are like sleeping on sandpaper.

Unfortunately I don’t think we are going to get them because they are out of stock online and I think limited quantities in the store. The wedding is in 2 weeks and we don’t have time to go back in and find a new comforter that we want. It seems like only duvet covers exist these days.

I totally would love to recieve the kitchenaid stand mixer and all its little attachments. I’m getting into the CSA lifestyle, and I need the means to do stuff and things with all the fruits and veggies I’ll be getting! 🙂

I would also like a bigger food processor.

My wedding is just over and I can say the best gift I got, that I wanted but wasnt top of my list, was my MINI cuisinart and also my mandoline!  I use them everyday. I get thin slices of onions and carrots for salads and everything else really. I never have to chop garlic anymore or small onions, easy to make bread crumbs, dressing etc.  I am making dinner now and have used the cuinsart (mini) 4 times!  I have a large one too, but this is the most convenient item I have gotten!

If I only got one thing from my registry, I would want it to be my fry daddy.

A Keurig coffee maker is definitely at the top of our list! If we don’t get one, I’m gonna haveta buy one. I can’t stand the cheap coffee maker we have now. I’d also really like to have a book, a digital picture frame, a laundry sorter, and a fondue set.

I got some stuff for the wedding such as a cake server set and a garter on the registry that we’ll need as well.

I’m really looking forward to two things:

Dishes (ours are from a garage sale and they are very seventies!)

Bedding – I can’t wait to re-do our bedroom!

@UpstateCait: I LOVE my dyson!  We already have one but if I didn’t it would be at the top of my list too!

We want everything we registered for, because we need it. But the items we want the most are the comforter and the microwave. We just moved into a new place and don’t have a microwave as the last apt had one built in. And we’re wanting to do a new room theme after we’re married so the comforter would be the first piece of turning the room around.

If we only got one thing from our registry I’d hope it’s the microwave.

Ok, I’ll update now that I have my food processor. 🙂 I would say I’m most excited about getting… a new toaster oven, a pizza stone and new flatware.

Formal china and cutlery. But a lot of people in our families traditionally give money so we may just use the money for those things.

The only thing I really want on my registry is the flatware set I registered for, oh and caphalon cookware set.  I keep buying stuff I want and taking it off… stupid me.  I registered for a dyson, found a great deal on one, bought it.  I registered for a Nespresso, found a great deal on one, bought that too.  I already know somone bought the cookware, so c’mon flatware! … and waffle maker.. =)
