Day 5

friday, friday, friday---tonight we rushed home from work to head right back out the door to the friday night date night macy's registry party. overall it was a good time, but had a slightly rocky start. it was supposed to be a 'sip and scan'. who would have thought that 'sip' meant bottled water and soda water with a splash of cran? not us! once we got over the food and beverage selections and annoying couples, the evening progressed. we actually had a good time looking at everything and made pretty thoughtful decisions on what to register for. the whole concept of registering for gifts is a little strange to both of us and it was a bizarre experience picking out things we'd want people to buy for us. as an aside, we are hoping to skip the shower thing as neither of us feel that celebrating our marriage means that others should shower us with gifts. we have plenty and are thankful for what we have. but, back to the registry process-- everything we picked out we can actually see ourselves using on a very regular basis. we are currently using one steel sautee pan that was my grandmothers (I think) and not level. we also do not have toaster (no jokes, please) and currently toast bread by placing it on another non-level pan which never actually toasts anything.
as lame as it is, one exciting thing was the message on the top of the registry print-out that the nervous suburban woman gave us, which was a cute message celebrating the wedding of jessica and liana. it felt so official and exciting to see it on paper for us, even in silly macy's.  the saleswoman was either just nervous and awkward in general, or was totally freaked out to meet (cute) lesbians in person. oh and the bonus gift -- free high quality wine glasses! not a bad deal after all...

About this blog

in an effort to keep me sane, relaxed, organized, humored, and hopefully useful to others, i'm going to document the next 365 days of wedding planning. i'd also like this to be a way to keep family and friends that don't live in boston feeling like they're in the know and involved over the next year. in a nutshell - liana and i are having a very non-traditional, modern wedding with vintage and sustainable elements. these 'elements' are still in progress and over the next year, we'll be on ebay, craigslist, random blogs and websites, trekking out to various antique fairs in New England, and using the skills of our friends and family for DIY projects.
