My Guy and I haven't "registered" for anything yet, despite the fact that we've had several (several) people ask us about it. (Um...and I get Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Crate & Barrel registry stuff in my inbox daily)
Our deal is:
1. we have no idea what we need
2. we actually need loads of stuff (ha!)
3. we don't know how to pick what is good stuff
4. i feel sorta selfish picking out presents for ourselves...it's odd
5. fine china will not be on our list
I love the fact that my mother cooks using the pots and pans they were given for their wedding. I really really love that. I want that. I want one set of pots and pans, mixing bowls and muffin pans, cookie sheets and measuring cups...good stuff...stuff that lasts forever. Forever.
Do they still make stuff that lasts forever? How do I know what brands are the bomb...and which ones are just priced like good stuff?
We actually have stuff - from college...a couple good things (I love my Pyrex!) but most of our stuff isn't "good" though it "works." I have two little sisters who could very well benefit from our scrambled kitchen collection if we do end up getting new things.
Camping stuff would be phenomenal too.
I wonder when we'll have time to do the whole registry thing.
