I really wanted our vacuums and steam cleaner and got those for the shower.  We REALLY needed them too. 

I’m kinda bummed no one has really bought any of our dishware, since both our mothers convinced us we needed new ones… and we do… and I got all excited for them.. and no one has bought any of it.  My shower was last Sunday and Future Mother-In-Law gave us the Kitchenaid we wanted, except she didn’t realize they shipped her the wrong color so we need to take care of shipping that back.

Knives, flatware, pots & pans, blender. These are things we really need and will purchase if no one gets them for us.

I’m in the food industry so I have a lot of the kitchen staples: the kitchenAid pro mixer, food processor, little gadgets, etc., but I REALLY want a marble pastry slab, a large wood cutting board, Mauviel copper cookware- very expensive- we’ll see, china, and bath towels.  The rest I’ll take in cash Smile

Scrabble!

Towels (boring but we really need them!)

Hamper (mine is broken and ugly)

Pillows (mine are old)

Everything else is just fluff.

@kala_way:  If you were closer I’d totally give you one of the 4 (FOUR!) editions of scrabble in our game closet right now πŸ™‚

We put only things we absolutely felt were useful since we been living together for 5 of the 8 years we dated. The thing we both wanted most was a digital camera, and someone got it for us. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait!

@thewheelsonthebus: wow! 4? We registered for the cool one with the raised edges so the tiles don’t roll around. We’re been using one stolen from my parents since we met πŸ™‚ We’re actually using Bananagrams tiles in our centerpieces!

@kala_way:  That’s awesome!  Yes, 4.  I had a ‘regular’ one then got the diamond anniversary edition (in the black plastic case).  Fiance had a regular one and then a deluxe edition one. 

Next spring… we’re having a HUGE yard sale πŸ™‚  

I wanted to do some scrabble stuff in the wedding but went a different direction.  Fiance proposed to me playing a board game… put the ring on my gamepiece when I wasn’t paying attention πŸ™‚

My Grandma is giving me the KitchenAid mixer so I would like to get some of the attachments for that.  Meat Grinder for goetta, and maybe the pasta one.  Also there is this rug at Crate and Barrel we love, so maybe if we get some gift cards we will put it towards that.
