It seems like every time I go into Target there is some sappy couple registering for a toaster.

Today I was one half of that sappy couple. (and yes we registered for a toaster)

There is a lot to think about when registering for gifts.

Can I register for a plasma tv?
According to, “Your wedding is one of the few opportunities you’ll have for receiving elaborate presents. Sign up for high-quality gifts the two of you will love and use for the long haul.

We didn’t. But there were definitely a couple items on our registry I thought were higher priced (of course I think anything over $100 is up there- haha).

I loved being the sappy couple walking around with the laser bar code gun talking excitedly about how we definitely needed a George Foreman Grill (I grew to love the Foreman while living in the Slate Canyon house with the guys).

It was surreal to think that the items were for US.
I loved it.

My buddy Mike was saying how he thought it would be great to be able to register at Wells Fargo!

You start an account and have people just deposit whatever they want into it. My mind is racing with all the fun things we could pay for with that money like:
car payment.

Yeah… I guess if I just got money I would probably be TOO frugal and not want to buy some of the fun things we could possibly get as gifts.

Guess it’s a good thing we just went scan crazy in that place! Haha

I’d still like to see some gift cards trickle in though…

I’m trying to think of the equivalent of a registry back in Jerusalem or Nephite times, but nothing comes to my mind.

The description of weddings typically looks like this;

“And Abram took Sarai his wife…” (Genesis 12:5)

It seems that times have changed a touch. If customs were the same, Leah and I might already be married – no hoopla.

Hhmmm, I like it.

? To my married friends, PLEASE tell me what you would recommend registering for now that you have the privilege of retrospect?
