A few more things left…

Hey there! The stress level is down and I am happy to say we got a huge chunk done out of our registry and most of it was at Target! Last night we started the evening with dinner at TGIFridays! It is one of our favorite places to eat at. I got my all time favorite dish from there, Sizzling Chicken and Shrimp. YUM! Collin got a Jack Daniel’s Burger which looked pretty delicious too! After that we hit up Dunkin Donuts to get some coffees to sip on as we walked about Target. 

With a scanner in one hand and a coffee in the other we started where we left off! We completed most of our kitchen stuff! Our colors for our kitchen are going to be blue and brown :). So we picked out a table cloth, napkins, rug, and towels all to match :). I was excited to finally pick stuff out that didn’t have to do with a kitchen, so we headed to bedroom stuff. We picked out a white down comforter with  a green quilt to put at the end of the bed. So our bedroom is going to be green & white. Then we moved along to the bathroom! I love gray, so that’s what we picked out for our shower curtain with some starburst sort of designs on them. We also got gray and white towels and all the little stuff that goes on your sink to match too! I am still looking for a bathroom rug though…I want something thick and fluffy so I am going to have to do some searching on that one! We also put things like cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, zip block bags, and tin foil on our registry since we wont have anything to start off with. There is now only a small list of things we need, and I want to go back to Bed Bath & Beyond to check some more stuff out! Check this out! Both stores give you wedding registry starter kits. Since I didn’t take any pictures of us doing our registry I snapped a few of these.

 Target gives you this adorable binder and it was filled with coupons and a $20 shutterfly card. (was kinda bummed because it was hours after we had already placed our order for invitations/guest book.)

Now I am so excited to hit up tjmaxx and home goods to look for little accessories that will match each room! 🙂 clearance rack here I come!


Target. check. Bed Bath & Beyond. check.

Last night Collin and I started our wedding registry! We are registering at Target & Bed Bath & Beyond. Let me tell you I was very excited to be doing this but when it came to actually picking out the things we were going to use everyday I was instantly overwhelmed. Oh by the way, Collin and I both live with our parents still so we have absolutely nothing! The list for things we need is more than a mile long. :/ Not only did being overwhelmed stress me out at Bed Bath & Beyond a consultant comes around with you which I felt pressured into getting things and making choice right then and there. Plus it was about 7 o’clock at night so I felt a bit rushed in making choices..Bummer hey? The light at the end of the tunnel: Collin and I brought our spirits up by just complaining and making jokes about the way Bed Bath & Beyond ran their show “You NEED one of these, and probably 3 of them too!” Oh yeah, the Starbucks and snicker also cheered us right up for the way home! Somehow that boy can always put a smile on my face! So tonight we are venturing out again! With good attitudes and ready to find things we WANT! & I am planning to take my camera too so we can capture a few moments! Its friday, take a big breath in and begin to relax and enjoy your weekend because I am! 🙂
