What I want? What I want?!
Sure, Adam and I have registered for the typical stuff...you know, plates, silverware, wine glasses, ice cream maker, etc; but there's a part of me dying to add something outlandish and unexpected.
Our newlywed friends Matt and Valerie recently suggested we include something "big" that we don't expect to actually receive (full disclosure: Adam is contemplating adding an iPad), but I'm thinking I'll go in a different direction.
What do I really want to register for?
Upholstery services because, hot damn, it gets 'spensive when you've got many projects in the queue.

And finally, my most recent acquisition, a side chair for our den:
As you can see, registering for upholstery services would be a wiser investment than candlesticks or a crock pot. I mean, how many posts on this blog have been dedicated to crock pots? None.
Now, the question is, can I get away with it?
For all you marrieds out there: did you register for anything "outside the box"?
If so, do tell!
