Every time I go to pull out my nice china, I kick myself.
Because its not there.
It never was.
I have my great grandmother’s floral patterned china which is perfect for Easter, but no wedding china of my own.
That is the number one item I wish we’d registered for.

Also, I did not intentionally make it wedding week around here. It just kind of happened that way. So yes, while the legality of my marriage is in question, these are all items I wish we would have registered for. I mean did we really need that rug I was over in less than six months? No. We needed this stuff.
#1: China / China Storage
I’ve already said my biggest regret is not registering for china. Everyday I wish I had registered for a classic pattern that I could use during holidays. I’m also a sappy person and wish I had that to pass on to the kid one day. My luck, she probably wouldn’t give a crap about it. I also wish I would have registered for this fab china storage.
It would have been perfect for housing my great-grandmother’s china.
#2: Nice Sheets
Friends, please do yourself a favor. Every year invest in a new pair of nice sheets for yourself.
The investment is so worth it. Grunt Labor and I decided last year that our anniversary present to each other must include a new set of nice sheets.
#3: Good Pots & Pans
Luckily when Grunt Labor and I got together, his mom, Mama, had hooked him up with great pots and pans.
We are still using those and they are still doing pretty great. This is one of those investments that will pay off! Our set is similar to this one and we love them.
#4: A Good Camera
There is simply no substitute for a good camera. Your phone simply will not take as good of pictures and neither will a point and shoot.
Less than six months into my marriage, I was ready for a better camera. We didn’t have enough money for one until right before the kid was born. I have the Canon Rebel and love it.
#5: A Good Coffeemaker
When Grunt Labor and I got married, I was still carting around the Gevalia coffeemaker I had gotten for “free” when filling out a postcard. Needless to say, it was temperamental.
#6: Pyrex Storage Set
This is another thing no kitchen should be without – a good set of Pyrex Glass Storage.
I use these almost daily.
#7: Nice Towels
Just like good sheets, everyone deserves nice, big, fluffy towels.
Of course, I am partial to this green color. Imagine that. However, I am a fan of white towels as well. Bleach those bad boys as needed and they are stain free.
#8: Pretty Flatware
This one kind of goes along with the china – I wish we had a bit more formal flatware to use on special occasions.
I love this gold set from Target. I’m sure its not meant to be a family heirloom, but it would fancy up a table quickly.
Simply put, a person can never have too many baskets.
Not only are they decorative, but I love big baskets like the ones above to put extra blankets in and store away essential items that aren’t so pretty. Yes, I like big baskets and I cannot lie.
