I'm very excited! I've just received another place setting of my fine china! I love getting my registry stuff!!! It's my favorite thing in the whole world right now. I call mom every time I get something and I'm like 'yay!!!' and she's all 'yay!!' for me because she knows how much I love it! I've always loved looking at china patterns and flatware and stemware. I've always popped in the china section at Dillards every time I've been in there. Since I was young...too young to be even close to getting married. I don't know what it is. I love stuff like that! It's so fun to me! One day, I'm gonna have lots of different china patterns for all types of occasions. Like, pink rimmed for Easter, and a Christmas pattern, and a silver and black rimmed one for when I'm hosting a black tie dinner. That last one may have gone a touch too far but you get the idea. My mom loves it just as much as me which may be where I get it from. It was really difficult choosing my casual china pattern for me but not my fine china pattern. I've always loved it! It's special I think. It's presidential too! Lady Byrd Johnson chose it as her pattern when she was the first lady. It's been around since 1912 and I think it's so timeless!
It's exciting that I'm still receiving wedding gifts. I've heard I'll be getting them for the next year or so. That works for me! I'm still needing things from my registry and I've told all of my family and Scott that I want my birthday gifts from them to be something from my registry. And Christmas too until there's nothing left. Nothing would make me happier! I've got lots and lots of Dillards gift cards that I haven't used yet that I'll be able to use to get things off of my registry. But I'm waiting because after 90 days of being married, Dillards gives you your leftover stuff 20% off. However though, in August and November all of the china at Dillards goes 40% off so I think I might wait and get some things then even though that's kinda far away. It's definitely worth the wait though. 40% is awesome! That's really all I have left. China and stemware. But you can get my stemware at Bed Bath and Beyond and I always get those 20% coupons in the mail so I can buy those any time. They don't offer any of my china patterns at BB&B unfortunately. Can you tell I've deeply thought this through? My life is filled with not much excitement...china and stemware is all I have.
I guess that's all I really wanted to say. It made me so happy so I thought I'd share! Yay for china! And yay for people who love me and do nice things for me!!...and Scott too. You people are great!!!!!
Oh and just for fun I thought I'd post pictures of my china I have now and the Black Tie and Easter pattern I plan to have in the future. These patterns stay around for decades so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to accumulate them over time. Still haven't decided on a Christmas pattern yet so there's no picture of that.... Fun huh!!! :)
