Registry almost complete!


I hope some of you enjoyed the Michigan pictures ūüôā ¬†We had a really fun trip with both of the dogs in beautiful, snowy, Union Pier, MI. ¬†I’ve been busy this week working on a fellowship renewal application for NASA and finishing up my Master’s thesis and helping my dad after hip replacement surgery. ¬†Its been a busy week! ¬†Our registry is almost done though….stay tuned in the next week for links to appear! ¬†Descriptions of the bridal party will start appearing soon too so lots of new website content coming soon.



Hello to all!

I’ve spent most of the past two days either sending out Christmas cards, looking at invitation options, or starting to add things to our registry. ¬†The registry is quite a large chunk of the current ‘to do’ list! ¬†So many things to figure out and research (we’re kind of consumer reports junkies hehe!). ¬†I started with the easy things today. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Still trying to figure out where the gifts should be sent so that info will be changed as soon as its decided. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Any suggestions on good registry items to add? ¬†We need dishes (still working on that) but we have a lot of furniture that we’ve been using from my parents….so do we ask for more/newer/matching furniture or do we wait until we’re in a more permanent location? ¬†Champaign is a wonderful place to call home but we’ll probably only be here about 4 more years. ¬†And we have sooo much space here compared to what our next home might look like before we buy our own. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Many exciting things in life to look forward to together! ¬†We’re definitely going to ask for sheets and towels and some kitchen accessories that we’d like to add to our collection. ¬†Any suggestions/ideas would be wonderful!

On another note, all of the bridesmaids dresses have been ordered and I’m pretty sure that most of them are in already. ¬†Exciting! ¬†Brett and I are going to spend the next few days designing the invitations and then those will go out in the next few months. ¬†There always seems to be something to do! ¬†ūüėČ ¬†Alright, thats all for now. ¬†Hope all is well with you!

Happy New Year 2012!

Love, Mal
