Watching the registry...
I know that you're not meant to peek but I can't help it. Also, my mother made me paranoid as she said that everything was already taken (I only registered for a few things for my shower).
So when I logged on not a single thing had been bought and my shower is only two weeks away. I think my mom was looking at the wrong registry which is why she thought everything was gone.
Does that seem strange? My FI is convinced that 1) my sister didn't send the shower invites or 2) they did not communicate the registry info.
I'm not so worried about not getting presents but I am worried about people buying things that aren't on the registry as I may not be able to fit them in my suitcase to bring back. I only registered for super small things like serving spoons and little kitchen gadgets.
