We get wedding announcements just about every week from some cute couple starting their lives together. You know you have arrived as a married couple in LDS culture when you start getting these wedding invites and announcements from people you don't even know. Like you name is on some Mormon Wedding Mailing List! We don't really mind, but think it is always a fun game to try and figure out who they are.
It always brings back memories of when Kristie and I were young and in love. (Now we are just in Love). She was living in our apartment for two weeks with some girlfriends until we got married. We really didn't have anything, so she dragged me to all these home goods stores to create our Gift Registry. One of the best stores we went to was Target.
I was trying to convince Kristie to let me register for an Xbox, but we negotiated a deal that allowed me to register for DVD's. As you might know, I love movies and she figured no one would buy us any, she thought she was clever.
Then a Wedding Day Miracle happened. People bought us a whole bunch of movies. But they didn't just grab a DVD and throw in a recycled gift bag that said "Happy Birthday." They basically made these fantastic date nights in a can. Not only did they have a movie, they had treats and popcorn as well. It was so creative and allowed us to save money and build up our movie collection. They were seriously of my favorite gifts.
