So I was going through my registries today making sure everything was good to go - nothing discontinued, didn't accidentally request two coffee pots, etc - because my sisters will be sending out shower invitations in the next few days. I'm scrolling through the Williams Sonoma one and where I had registered for some nice Wusthof knives and knife block individually (better price points for shower gifts, I thought), I see it's ALSO showing the full 12-piece knife block set. What the heck. Requested = 0. And it won't let me delete it. I start to get super pissy that they added this to my registry and are making me look greedy... when I remember that my dad told me last night he has an early wedding present he "thought I might like to have early" that I can pick up this weekend. Look an inch to the right where I failed to see before... Purchased = 1. And the dummy-proof sharpener since I don't trust myself with the stick kind. Commence total freakout on my part.
I got my love of cooking from my dad, and he knew how excited I was to get some "real" knives. Never imagined he'd buy the full $600 set!
I'm kinda mad at myself for ruining the surprise, but I totally didn't mean to. I had always figured if I did spot that something had been purchased from my registry, it wouldn't be a surprise since I asked for it, but I'd still get the smaller surprise of seeing who ended up buying it. And I still could be wrong... but this is totally the kind of thing my dad does (he also called in the remaining payment on my wedding dress, unbeknownst to me until I went to look at BM dresses and the owner handed me the "paid" invoice with a wink and a smile). Did you all have any crap-your-pants-worthy gift surprises?
