You could also return stuff while you're there, get store credit and re-purchase when you get home...kind of a hassle but will do in a pinch!
I also thought it was weird that people insist on going into Babies R Us and buying, as I get overwhelmed every time I go in that place! Plus half the stuff I registered for is not available in every store, so people may have to order online anyway. But I suppose we can't break others' habits :)
my mom wants to drive out from ky to co with her van loaded down with baby stuff which is silly, but she is a drivin' fool and it will give her a chance to see me off before the baby comes, too. there is no convincing her otherwise. oh well, i tried.
babiesrus is completely overwhelming. i think it was more so since i just didn't want to be there.
& kat216, i think i will check an empty suitcase, too. my fiance and i both can do that and it will help a lot i believe. :)
we have the date set for december 8th, which is before christmas parties and all that business, and its a saturday. we're getting it catered, are using a party planner and having it in a nice hotel with a block of rooms & have it in a conference room overlooking the city, since we are driving to yet another state from my mother's for it to cater to my family. my family is so lazy, i swear to god.
