Macy's Mania

On Saturday afternoon, Ryan and I headed to Macy's to complete our registry partnership.

They gave us a few pointers, then handed us our gun. I'm always disappointed that they don't look like actual guns. The Macy's one looked more like a Palm Pilot (omg, remember those?!).

I started off trying to follow our registry list, but it was causing more headaches than anything, so we just let go and went shopping.

Here are a few of the things we ended up registering for...

Bella Cucina Rotating Waffle Maker - I love homemade waffles. I fear this contraption might be the demise of my efforts to maintain a healthy weight.

Hotel Collection Bath Towels in "Twilight" - No, not the movie. Just the color. And a very pretty color at that! To be honest, I'm still using the towels I took with me to my freshman year at college (a whopping 7 years ago!). I need some new fluffy ones.

Wedgwood Sterling 5 Piece Place Setting
- Even though we aren't especially fancy people, I really wanted China. I feel like it's a real investment, and something that a lot of my older relatives will really enjoy purchasing for us. We went with a simple design so that it will stay timeless.


Pyrex 8 Piece Mixing Bowl Set - To quote my mother: "You must have a set of glass mixing bowls." Yeah, okay. I don't ask questions.

Kate Spade Library Stripe Iced Beverage Glass
- Water goblets to use with our china on special occasions. (I also asked for a set of matching champagne flutes for Christmas to use at our wedding.)


KitchenAid 5 Quart Stand Mixer - This is a pretty big staple on registries now-a-days, isn't it? But who can resist when it comes in so many fun colors, and promises to make me a master pastry chef (wait... it doesn't?).


Calphalon Unison Nonstick Cookware - Ryan and I had a really tough time deciding on cookware. We wanted something nonstick, dishwasher safe, and budget friendly (not $200 for a saucepan). This was not an easy task, but we eventually found this line, which is perfect!


Presto Jumbo Electric Griddle - I could make an entire pound of bacon on this thing at one time. At! One! Time! My stomach is squeeling with excitement as we speak.


Le Creuset Enameled Oval Dish - I really wanted a piece of Le Creuset bakeware, but man it's expensive! I decided on this one because it will be perfect for baked pasta dishes (yum!).


After the registering was over and we were in the car on our way home, we discussed how registering was much less fun this time than when we did it at Crate and Barrel. I think the problem is that Macy's carries so many different lines, that you are constantly comparing prices and quality. At Crate and Barrel, what you see is what you get.

The one thing that no one warned me about is just how addictive registering can be! Once you get over the awkwardness of telling people what to buy you, it can actually be a lot of fun. I've added a ton of stuff online post-registering (Ryan might want to double check our lists to make sure he approves of it all!).

Is it wrong for me to love those pyrex bowls? I think its the multi color lids they make me happy.
