Tomorrow, my husband and I celebrate our two-year anniversary. Hurrah!
Honestly, being married totally rocks. It's WEIRD, don't get me wrong - currently my husband is singing the first chorus line from "Hooked on a Feeling" over and over again while he gets ready. Any time you have to mix two lives into one household, stuff gets totally weird.
Life after "I do" is fun, though. I remember how fun it was to unpack all of our wedding gifts for the first time in our new house and put them to use, cooking dinners together and drinking wine on the patio out of fancy Riedel glasses (I know, so booshy). So it's just a coincidence that my anniversary falls on Target asking me to highlight more awesome registry items, and I'm featuring one item we've used on a weekly basis!
The Pyrex Set - I know, I know. You were hoping for something more exciting. But seriously, these are little workhorses in the kitchen! Bake a casserole, brownies, whatever you want and then pop the top on the leftovers. It makes for a clean kitchen - less dishes, and easy to store - and a clean fridge too! To make the set a little sexier, dress it up with other Target registry items. I have a couple of ideas for you...
Idea #1: Dinner for Two! Add a few pasta and casserole starter boxes to the bundle, and you've helped the couple put together their first few meals. Get really creative and add two fun dishes to the bundle so they have everything they need.
Idea #2: The kitchen casserole essentials. Measuring cups and wooden spoons will equip the couple with the tools they need to casserole together. I prefer wooden spoon sets to metal because they don't have that awful scraping sound when you use them - particularly helpful with teflon, so you don't scratch the pan. And a nice set of measuring cups is something they'll use while baking brownies together forever. FOREVER BROWNIES.
And just because Target loves you guys, they're giving away a $25 giftcard to use on your registry, someone else's, or just a bunch of socks. Your call! I'll pick a winner on Friday.
