Gifts!

We got another one delivered today!  An awesome wine rack!  Are you girls opening yours right away?  We decided to so that we can let the sender know that we received it.  We are using everything now too :)  It's too hard to wait!

    I've been tracking our gifts online so that I know what's coming and what to look for.  I've decided to stop opening them so FI gets some to open up :-)  As long as I read the packing list I know what it is and who sent it so I can go ahead and get the thank you notes out.  Unfortunately I live in an apartment complex and the postman just drops the boxes off on my front step before I get home.  I haven't had a problem yet but they neighborhood has definitely gone down since I moved in so I'm just waiting for something to walk off.

    Coming home to gifts on my doorstep is definitely a highlight to my days! I got a UPS notification today, and should have another gift delivered tomorrow! Yay! We are opening and using now too. I want to stay on top of thank you cards!

    We are opening ours and using most of ours. Gifts are being sent to my parents' house as the neighboors look out for one another. We've gotten 4 gifts and 1 check so far, and we're saving the check for after the wedding. Just last night we got the bed set we registered for. Stripped the bed last night and put the new ones on (much to FI's dismay). I love them!!!!!!!!! Sending out the Thank You's after the wedding as we're ordering them with wedding pics, but we're able to let the senders know we received the gifts and to expect a thank you after the wedding.

    I've been opening them as they come, using them and sending a thank you card right away. I know you aren't supposed to, but oh well! I figure if something happened, and I had used the gift, I'd send them $ equivalent of what it was worth on the website plus shipping.

    Oh I've definitely been opening them!  FI made me thank you cards last weekend that match our invitations, so I'm trying to write the thank yous as I receive things.  I would feel terrible if I missed anything!
