Sip and Scan a Review

Tonight Mr. GP and I got to indulge in a bit of Registry Fun. I've previously posted about this event - the Knottie Sip and Scan Event at Macy's in Pentagon City.

My thoughts?

Well, it was a great event. Aside from the catering being near non-existent, it wasn't bad. Except...that's how I conned Mr. GP into going by promising free food and drink...what? Sip? Sip what? Sparkling water that we got five minutes before we left? Sure! The people however, were incredibly helpful, and answered all of our questions and were around when we needed them. I gave Mr. GP command over the super scanner (it was huge!) so at least he got to have fun with that.

I digress.

It was very helpful being able to talk to vendors, having my list that they suggest, swooning over the Martha Stewart Collection, we registered for Ralph Lauren bath towels, Vera Wang china, everything Kitchen Aid, and new pots and pans that look incredible.

Some of my favorites?

We're also registering at Crate and Barrel which...has not yet been started if only because we haven't had a free weekend to get out to Clarendon to do so. Now that Macy's is almost done, I'm excited to go register for the rest of our goodies, and check another box off the list.

What are your favorite registry items? Favorite store to register at?? Anyone else go to the Macy's event? What did you think?

I got that same spice rack :) I registered at BB&B - the return/exchange policy pretty much solidified our decision. Since i change my mind a lot, knowing i could exchange/return for cash anything on my registry at BB&B at any time really helped me let loose and be overly inclusive on the registry list too :)
