Our first round of presents...you can probably find these piled in our spare bedroom :)
Ok for anyone out there who has just gotten engaged, or for that matter, just completed their registry...words of advice...When you get home today- go to a spare room and clear EVERYTHING out! I wish that is something we would have done a few months ago! We are being buried alive by all of our gifts! Trust me it is as awesome as it sounds, but these last few weeks leading up to the wedding- we do not need any extra stress! And when you live with someone who has ocd, having to climb over boxes to get to the couch, does not make things very relaxing around the house!
I feel awful, because I know this is really frustrating for the Diesel. He comes home at night, looks at one of the piles, and says, do we really need this stuff, why don't we just return it? What makes it worse, is we registered for a lot of things that we will use when we own a home. So we are using our apartment for nothing but storage purposes right now! The one upside, is I really do think this is a gentle reminder to him daily that we have outgrown our apartment, and it is time to purchase a house. The presents do all of the nagging, without making me look bad. It is a win win in my book :)
Another word of advice- start the thank yous! It is an awesome feeling getting that accomplished before the wedding even starts! Stay ahead of the game!
