Registry fun!

Today was something I legitimately couldn't wait for. Caleb and I decided to do our first wedding registry at the last minute, and he wen all diva-status on me the other day when we were discussing if we should or not, and said "well kayla...according to Martha Stewart, its perfectly NORMAL to go preparing a registry SIX whole months in advance to the date of your wedding!".... wellppp, guess its decided then. Martha said it, it must be true.



Let me start out by saying, this was one of the most exciting, yet exhausting days EVER... Caleb was so excited, when we got to Target he totally went insane. Typing everything on the little kiosk, printing the papers, etc. I just sat back and watched as he told me "don't worry, you can take control at Bed Bath and Beyond...".

It honestly was so fun, but after about half an hour, our first scanner died... so we returned it to guest services and they gave us a new one "fully charged", which ALSO died shortly after. Here we are... a short hour and something later and we were in the towel section and couldn't make up our minds on colors... and I think I recall saying "I don't even CARE what color! Just scan like 7 of them!!" He shot me a look. We were so done at Target. We decided we needed to refuel and that going to Skyline to treat ourselves sounded MUCH more appealing than doing a second registry in one day at BB&B.

It seriously was so much fun though. I mean it was so surreal. We were picking out OVEN MITTS and SPATULAS that will be in our FUTURE place!! Its such an exciting thing, and I wanted to enjoy it, and without food in our stomachs, that just wasn't possible. Needless to say, we didn't finish our Target registry this weekend... but don't fear ;) we will return.

Its really hitting me this week that I. AM. GETTING. MARRIED. Whaaaat?! I was talking with my MOH on the phone the other day and she was asking about all the details and its really beginning to hit me how much my life will change in the next few months. I will never again sleep at my families house, in the same bed... I will soon have my OWN family of 2, and I will have to prepare my own dinner every night, unless my husband will be super awesome every now and then? ;) and lets get real... he is. I am so excited for all of these changes, but I can't help but wonder how different things will be. How did some of you ladies adjust to married life right away?! Any tips, or am I just gonna have to dive in for myself and see!? ;)

  1. So. Exciting! I am sure you will adjust to married life just fine! I think you just need to jump in and enjoy every second of it. Did you ever think you would be so excited about oven mitts and spatulas?!? I bet the 10 year old version of yourself would think that is just craziness! Haha! Glad you had a great time registering!

  13. I think Zach and I decided that we are going to do our registries at Target and Bad, Bath, & Beyond also. I can't wait for that part of the planning, but it won't be for about a year.

  14. Registering is such an exciting big step, no matter how frustrating it may be! I'll shamelessly admit, Glenn and I registered 9 months in advance, so y'all are fiiiiiine. So glad it was successful! :) One registry coordinator told us, "Remember, register for the life you WANT, not the life you currently HAVE." It was excellent advice, as I'm now the proud owner of an amazing Dyson vacuum that I never would've bought myself! Haha

  15. I love the pictures of you with the scanners! hahaha. I got mad at McKay when we were registering at Target because he was rushing me so he could go home and play soccer! lol. You are going to be the cutest wife. You will have lots and lots of fun. Don't be worried about anything! You will be living with your best friend and things will go smoother than you think! Just learn how to drop things and move on...that was our biggest lesson...because we both talk and talk and TALK. But that might not even be an issue for you two!
