the best


I have the best wife.

Beautiful, smart, funny, great mom (check, check, check, check)

When we were engaged and going around registering for stuff for our wedding...we didn't register for china. She agreed that it'd be silly to have someone spend a big chunk of change for dishes that we'd maybe use once a year.

I have a theory that basically people are going to spend a certain amount of money on your wedding gift. If you took all those people and figured out how much money they were going to spend and added it up...then you'd know how much money, in gifts, that you were getting for your wedding.

The thing is - if you wouldn't normally take that money and go buy fancy, easily broken, dishes that you'd rarely buy...then why would you register for fancy, easily broken china?

It's the same thing.

We also don't have any towels in the house that you're not allowed to use. We don't have decorator soap that's just there to look at. If it's in our house, it's going to get used (excluding most of my tools).

I have the best wife.

I win.
