Today we received our first shower gift in the mail!!! Of course I didn’t open it until Mr. H and I were home together – but I am not going to lie… I was mad it wasn’t until 7:45pm and I picked it up from the office at 5!! We were gifted some beautiful wine glasses we registered for from Crate and Barrel (they have the BESTEST boxes by the way). I danced around the kitchen with one of my new “roommates” and then sadly put her back in her box so she wouldn’t get broken.
NOW…are you wondering why I called a silly little wine glass my roommate??
Well, I decided that all of our gifts are going to be our roomies. I had a revelation after I put the box next to my pile of ‘wedding stuff.’
Seriously think about it – from here on out until the wedding we are going to be receiving gifts. These gifts need somewhere to live. Whereas normal people have space in their current home for things like dishes and towels, we do NOT. We don’t even have room for the belongings we moved in with. Therefore, our presents will have to live among us, and we will have to live among them. Don’t get me wrong – I am SO grateful for my new friends – but there might be a few fights if I can’t move around like a normal person in here.
So what do you think? Mr. H doesn’t think my ‘roomie’ analogy is as funny as I do. When you started receiving gifts did you feel a little like you had some new company in your home??
