I’ve developed a nasty little habit this week. I’ve started registry snooping.
It started innocently enough… I was adding a new item to our registry… I noticed a bright green PURCHASED over one of the top items…my curiosity was sparked… and all of a sudden I’m scrolling through the entire registry looking for other bright green PURCHASED labels.
Do you know those kids that couldn’t wait to sneak a peek at their presents before Christmas? Yep, that was me. What am I saying? That’s still me. The truth is I’m not a fan of surprises and, when it comes down to it, I’m just not that patient. If a book is full of too much suspense, I’ll skip ahead and read the last chapter because I can’t stand not knowing what’s going to happen. In my opinion, it’s a surprise no matter when you find out, so why not find out sooner? Right? Right? 😉
I’ve started checking the list daily and can’t seem to pull myself away. It’s like Christmas everyday. You know you’ve officially moved to adulthood when you and your fiance rake up as much enthusiasm as a five-year old waking up to their first bike on Christmas morning when you realize someone purchased the vacuum you’ve been pining over since you created the registry 8 months prior. WE GOT THE VACUUM?!?! HONEY! COME QUICK!! WE GOT THE VACUUM!! *cue happy dance*
I love it. 🙂
Did you registry snoop? Or did you keep everything a big surprise until your shower/ wedding day?
Also, what’s your stance on using gifts as they arrive? Open them up and starting using them? Or wait until after the wedding to put that mixer to work?
