doing the dishes

When I get home from work, the first thing I do is usually the dishes. After a day of sitting in front of a computer, it is nice to actually do a task, and have an end result. Doing the dishes is my little way of being able to feel like my hands have accomplished something that day. And has the added bonus of making sure all the dishes are ready for dinner making!

And wouldn’t the task of washing dishes be so much prettier with these plates?! I mean, I would feel like I was doing dishes for the queen. I want to register for them all.

Our first registry!

Last weekend we when to our first registry at¬†Crate & Barrel!¬†Overall, it was a pretty fun experience. We showed up early in the morning before the store was open to the public and we got to go in and mosey around. We got there before the rest of the couples so we had some time to kill before things got started. Crate & Barrel did a good job setting up and even provided coffee, baked goods and a cake tasting. We didn’t taste any cake since it was 9 a.m. in the morning and felt that maybe breakfast tacos might have been a better choice.

I used the Crate & Barrel iPhone app instead of the scanner, which to my disappointment wasn’t even the scanner that you see in all the movies that is shaped like a gun so you can shoot everything you want. We found a few things that we liked and didn’t try to go too crazy by only focusing on the essential things that we felt that we would need when we official embark on our married life together.
