Lovey and I wed five years ago. It was magical, memorable, and a bit maddening. It was a magnificent jumble. And this is why it was partial madness... We honestly knew   N O T H I N G    about planning a wedding or what we were supposed to do. We were in love. We wanted nothing more than to be married and live out our happily ever after as soon as humanly possible. This is why we only had a two month engagement. Seriously. Two months. Happily ever after couldn't get to us fast enough. 

Planning a wedding in two months is possible... stressful...but possible. We leaned toward preparations that were effortless and those that required little time... Like registering for our gifts... We knew we wanted to register at a place that was easy to navigate, familiar to all our guests, and somewhere that offered everything two clueless lovebirds would need to build their life together. This is why we chose Target for our wedding registry. Their wide selection of products catered to our needs.

It's been five years but  I remember a lot from that day. We had a blast going aisle by aisle choosing things for our future nest. We had absolutely nothing to our name before we married so we had to start from scratch.  No joke. That  day we figured out what kind of home decor was "our style", decided on color schemes, picked bed sheets, etc. etc. Target had it all. We ended our registry day satisfied with our wishlist and excited for the future that Target would enable us to create! Thanks Target!

  1. The Kitchen Aid Ultra Power Stand Mixer: http://www.target.com/p/kitchenaid-ultra-power-4-5-qt-stand-mixer/-/A-14269968#prodSlot=medium_1_1&term=Ultra+Power+Stand+Mixer

    For all the obvious reasons (who doesn't want a KitchenAid?), and because I love the color selection. I'm pretty tempted by the pink, and I'm not usually a pink kind of girl :)

  2. I like this cutlery set:


    The candy apple red color is really striking and would dress up any kitchen counter.

  3. I like the Calphalon Kitchen Essentials 8qt Hard Anodized Pasta Pot Set
    http://www.target.com/p/calphalon-kitchen-essentials-8qt-hard-anodized-pasta-pot-set/-/A-12220919#prodSlot=medium_1_1&term=pasta pot

    because a good pasta pot is always useful when making spaghetti dinners for family.


  4. The Squish Measuring Cups are my favorite thing right now!! I'm changing the colors in my kitchen and these would be a great start.

  5. I would really love the kitchenaid mixer. I am an avid baker & it would be a huge help and time saver. Also, I think they just look cool on the kitchen counter to be honest.


  6. These towels look so big and luxurious...and I love how many colors they come in: http://www.target.com/p/threshold-performance-solid-bath-sheet/-/A-14132398#prodSlot=medium_1_6&term=threshold+solid+performance

  7. KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer

    I have been wanting a Kitchen Aid mixer for many years! I love how it has all these attachments. I would love to make homemade gluten free pasta with it someday

  8. KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer in empire red is my favorite, a perfect and practical helper in every kitchen. http://www.target.com/p/kitchenaid-ultra-power-4-5-qt-stand-mixer/-/A-13544725#?lnk=sc_qi_detaillink

  14. Being a baker, naturally my favorite item is the KitchenAid mixer in silver! I LOVE KitchenAid's (it's actually what we used in school), but I still haven't saved up enough to get one...

  15. I think a Keurig is great for newlyweds. They can make their own flavor, and one cup at a time for different schedules in the morning!! I personally love this item because it is so easy to use and FAST!

  16. I love the KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer in Apple Green. It is my favorite item because I have always dreamed of having one, can't afford one at all, and I hope one day, I will be lucky enough to get it and have it sit in on the kitchen counter looking so pretty, the green is gorgeous :)

  17. http://www.target.com/p/kitchenaid-ultra-power-4-5-qt-stand-mixer/-/A-14269968#prodSlot=medium_1_1&term=Ultra+Power+Stand+Mixer in red. It would match my kitchen plus I have been wanting one for ages-the Kitchenaid Ultra Power stand mixer thanks for the giveaway

  18. I can't get the actual page to load (I just get a spinning wheel) but I want the KitchenAid Candy Apple Red 12pc Stainless Steel Cutlery Set. We need new knives so bad and I LOVE red!! This is the link that comes up for the page: http://wedding.catalogs.target.com/#/page/12

  19. I like the Hamilton Beach Bowl Scraper Food Processor because it's so much better than the one I have. It would be such a timesaver and so useful if I had one of them!

  20. I like the Keurig K75 Single Cup Coffee Maker - Platinum because it makes great coffee and is easy to use.

  21. Two months to plan a wedding?!!??! I was helping a friend of mine who was getting ready, and I thought that four months was stressful! Target was a lifesaver for her as well! They have so much to offer, no? Ok, so on the registry I love the Kitchen Aid 7 Cup Food Processor!

    http://www.target.com/p/kitchenaid-7-cup-food-processor/-/A-14046259#prodSlot=medium_1_0&term=kitchen aid contour silver 7 cup food processor

    I love this item so much because, unlike the other processors, this one is smaller and less bulky so it works out well if you have a small kitchen with less storage places. I also love the little pop the red color give. I'm sure it could definitely brighten up a room! (And the color name is Empire Red and that just sounds so creative & peppy, doesn't it?)

    Are we supposed to leave our email? I didn't see anything about it in the post... I'll just leave it in case I was supposed to:
