The biggest problem with having 7 guys who need different colored ties is that there are few brands that have all the colors I need.
-Light Blue
But we finally found one that has every color except for yellow. We bought all the colors except for red, because they didn't have that color at the Kohl's in Tulsa. On Sunday we went to the Kohl's in Edmond (where, I would like to point out, they had at least 5 red ties on Friday) but they were out of red also. The closest red tie is in Norman. We still have to find a yellow tie.
So after the lady at Kohl's told me I had to go on a tie-hunt, she told me their wedding registry was actually broken "until further notice."
At this point I was pretty bummed, and stressed, and about to cry over a stupid tie. What the heck?
But Garrett cheered me up (he's good at that) and convinced me to go to Target to register there. It was actually fun! We registered for all the typical things you're supposed to register for, but got some games and movies as well.
After registering at Target we had our first pre-marital counseling session, and it was awesome. He told us the results of the survey that we took, and turns out we scored really high in almost every area, and even had perfect scores in a couple areas. That was a huge relief for me. I just had this fear of us taking a survey and the counselor saying, "um ... you shouldn't get married." I have unrealistic fears sometimes.
Then we went back to Garrett's house and registered online at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, which wasn't nearly as fun as registering in the store. However, we did find a bedroom set we liked and some bathroom stuff.

Also this weekend:
Bought 52 flowers at Hobby Lobby (thank you Joy for letting us use your discount!)
Decided on fabric to decorate the tables
Picked glasses to use for toasting
Visited both sets of grandparents (brownie points?!)
Found someone who MIGHT sell us their bed
Found someone who doesn't charge an arm and a leg for a cake!

It is so awesome having a future mother in law that knows a zillion people at church who have dealt with wedding things before. She has found so many people who are willing to let us borrow things for the wedding for free! It's awesome!
