Uneventful

As far as my weekend is concerned it was pretty uneventful! Which these days is a HUGE blessing!


When I got home from work I saw that my order from Amazon had arrived! I was soooo happy! It was only one day earlier I got the confirmation e-mail it had shipped so I really wasn't expecting it for another day or so. I ordered 3 things but I can only show you two. The third one is a surprise for my bridesmaids! Here are two things I am very excited about:

A Maui guide book and a cupcake cake pan!

HELLO?!?!? How great are these? First of all, Kelly told me this book would be very useful in planning our honeymoon to Maui. I'm very excited to go through it! Oh, and a cupcake cake pan! Are you kidding? How great is that?!? I can't wait to make my first cake. I'll be sure to post pictures.

And then on Saturday, another surprise!

Josh and I were sitting on my couch using our laptops. Dueling laptops is what I like to call it. He was working on his church calendar and I was messing around on the world wide web. Of course I decided I needed to check my registry to see if anyone had purchased anything. I was making my way through them when I squealed with excitement! Someone had purchased us the crock pot I picked out.

I shared my excitement with Josh then called my mother. I think my mom was more excited than Josh was. She can understand how great a crock pot is. And how great getting my first mark in the "purchased" category on my registry is. After I got off the phone I talked to Josh about who I thought it could be. During our conversation my mom called me back. Guess what? They JUST delivered a package to me! Wooohoo! My crock pot had arrived and Josh's family in Texas were the ones behind the great gift! I was, and still am, so excited! I can't wait to go home next week and open it!

Sorry for the lack of excitement and pictures from this weekend! I'm sure I'll make up for it soon! My weekends are about to be full of excitement for the next 5 months. Ready or not here it comes!

The cupcake pan is so cute. I love getting stuff in the mail, and I love it even more when it comes earlier than they say it will!

Julie said...

I hope you don't mind I stopped by.

I've read some of your past posts to catch up. I think it is wonderful your parents went with you to register. It's good to have some advice.

I love my crockpot and try to use it often!!! It really helps save time on cooking dinner because it is cooking it for you while you are at work!!!!

There is nothing better than checking your registry only to find that items have been purchased! I absolutely LOVE the cupcake pan...so adorable!

Carrie said...

Yeah! So fun. A crock pot is a MUST! I'm so jealous of Maui! What a perfect honeymoon spot, and I'm sure Kelly will give you lots of tips!

Leigh Ann said...

Oh, and that cake pan...LOVE IT!

Laurie said...

I love your new cupcake pan! You are going to LOVE that crockpot! I used to check my wedding registry everyday. I was addicted.

Jennifer said...

I love that crock pot that you selected. Mine is the 'old style' with some sort of pattern. I would love a stainless or red crock. These are fabulous for making so many things. You will love it, especially on busy days!

Megan said...

Checking our registries was fun for me, but Charlie thought it was cheating. OH well! We used a Frommer's Guide to Maui.

Shannon said...

Ooooo a surprise!?! I love the cake pan and the crockpot!

Serah said...

I love that cupcake pan! I need to go look at Amazon for one of my own!

I always checked our registries, too, to see if anyone had bought anything. DH thought that was spoiling the surprise, but I didn't. Have fun!
