Busy Busy Busy

This weekend was a full on tsunami ‘round here raining nonstop since Friday morning and morphing into a surprise bout of snow which I was not at all prepared for, but we kept super busy through it all.  

Saturday we finally got our registries going.  I had attempted to start one at BB&B previously but apparently I am terrible at it, because after an hour of walking around with the gun, I had only scanned 14 items, so I took the fiance back with me to try again.  We added a lot more and made our way to Target as well.  I have to say, considering I want everything in Target normally, we had a really hard time finding things we wanted that we didn’t already have, so it’s quite scanty, but I’m hoping to peruse online to add some more options.  


We also celebrated 4 years together this weekend.  We tried out a new restaurant, Portalli’s in Ellicott City, and had a romantic fancy dinner.  They even surprised us with complimentary champagne because it was our anniversary.  Definitely a nice little “extra” that will probably have us going back.  Our food was great and the atmosphere was pretty cool too, although it was a little dark, but that made it all the more romantic. ;) 




On Sunday my mama and I went on a girls shopping trip to take care of a few things on the wedding “to buy” list.  I had really hoped to find an outfit for my bachelorette party, but had no luck.  I know it’s a while away, but I’ve been looking everywhere and just cannot find anything cute, or at least not what I have in mind.  We had a nice lunch though and were shocked and horrified to find the car and roads covered in snow when were finished.  Being in the mall is like being on a separate planet where you have no idea what is happening in the outside world.  And I thought I had seen the last of the white stuff.  Shoulda known better.  

My mama!

Now we’re back to Monday.  Hey, at least the sun might come out today??

  2. OOh, looks like you were able to register at BB&B without an employee? I'm jealous, because every time we went someone had to walk with us, and I hated it!

    1. OMG! Well, they asked if we wanted anyone to walk around with us and I said no. I'm sure it probably depends on the store you go to!

  5. I had such a hard time with adding things to the registry too!! We already had most of the things people usually register for with the exception of some upgrades we took advantage of lol.

    1. lol yea I guess I'm just a cheapskate and so torn on that stuff. We could upgrade, but then I think of people in the world who actually NEED stuff, and here I am trading out a perfectly working coffee maker lol

  7. Looks like a fun anniversary celebration! Congrats on 4 years! I found it was easier to browse on BB&B website and pick out our registry items online. I was constantly adding and changing things around the months leading up to the wedding but it was way more convenient than going to the store!

    1. Yea BB&B was much easier to register at than Target. I can't believe I'm saying something negative about Target because it's the best store ever, but so far registering there has been tough! It seems they either sell stuff in store or online, but not both, and I'm not sure how most people will shop?

  8. Doing the registry online really helped me. I was able to see all the options in one place for both stores :)
