Lesson Learned

Apparently, when you wait until the last minute to even bother to look up wedding registries the only gifts left are things like whisks and kitchen towels. I was a bit disappointed at first, but then I realized pot holders and kitchen towels are one of the few things that are used in the kitchen everyday so it's actually not that terrible of a gift if you can get past the fact that you gave newlyweds pot holders and towels.

Clearly the whole "friends getting married" thing is rather new to me, and while I'd been contemplating what to get them for awhile the thought of looking up registries never crossed my mind until my mom called me a moron last night and told me where to look.

I was rather excited that there was an option on the website to ship it directly to them so I won't have to be responsible for the box or worry about making awkward conversation at the gift table about what I got them.

Now if I only knew what I'm wearing to the wedding.

As a recently married person, I can verify that we were very happy about receiving some of the practical items on our registry like potholders and this totally sweet set of bamboo cooking utensils. And I can also tell you that we are eternally grateful to the many people who shipped the gifts directly to us so that we didn't have to figure out how to get them home at the end of the night when we headed off to a bed-and-breakfast. It was such a thoughtful thing for them to do. Hope you had fun at the wedding! :-)
