Don't Stop Believin'...

....that Google Reader is gonna say "jk" on July 1st. 

Are you over hearing about GR going away and Bloglovin' being the best thing since sliced bread? (PS I have to do it....go follow me here #shamelessplug) Now a show of hands....who else is still using Google Reader and will cling to it until it's dying breath post? Just me? I really love it. I have everything all pretty and organized it in. I know I know, McBlogLovin' can be organized too, but I like my Reader. So I'm reading all your lovely blogs today and through the weekend on GR. Monday may be a hard day for me. 

Anyways, besides being sad about change, this week I marked another something off my wedding to do list. We got officially registered. One of the places I registered had a super annoying website that made me want to throw my laptop out the window! And since I wasn't going to register for a new laptop, I decided to take a friend (and recent bride)'s advice and switch to a different place. 

Being a girl, I have been going to wedding and baby showers as long as I can remember. I hated them when I was 4 and had to wear a frilly dress with bows, but hey...there was cake! But I know pretty much everything that's going to show up on a registry. I didn't think about how entertaining it was going to be explaining to J why there were eleventy-seven different types of bowls to decide between. 

I also didn't expect to see this suggestion when I was looking for a gravy boat...
This is actually bigger in person. That is a regular pitcher. Definitely not a gravy boat. 

This was right after he asked me if the salad bowl I was holding was for him to put Ranch in and dip things. I was laughing and he had no idea why. 

In the luggage section, he pointed out a nice "makeup" bag for me....
If I need that much makeup, then he probably shouldn't be taking me out in public much less vacation, mkay! In his defense, I do have a large toiletry bag I take on vacation but it has everything for me, him and B that we could possibly need out of the bathroom. If you decide you want to wax your eyebrows or decorate your nails, there's probably stuff in there that can do it. I also don't get travel size stuff unless it's a sample from somewhere. So there's a foot tall hairspray bottle in my bag....that I have NEVER once used on vacation. Always prepared though! 

So go ahead and mark registry off the list. That baby is donezo! Next project...finding a DJ! Any tips on that?? The one I have seen at weddings before is booked for our Saturday. How do you know if they are "good" or have the right music or will keep from playing "My Chick Bad" while my grandparents are still there??

Usually you can make the DJ a playlist and they will play things in order and then you can have an end of the night playlist. Your grandparents may get up and dance to my chick bad you never know haha

I love those dishes, but I totally thought that was a pitcher when I first saw it. Who needs that much gravy? Um, me...if I want to hit the one ton mark.
