Happy Friday! Trip celebrated his last day of 2nd grade yesterday, and I have 5 more days 'til summer and my new gig!
Robert and I are coming up on our 9th wedding anniversary soon, and we still use a lot of the gifts we received. I thought it would be fun to share my top 5 picks to either add to your wedding registry or to purchase for any upcoming weddings.
1) Everyday dishes
I've never been one to pine after fancy china or teacups. When we registered, we opted to ask for Fiesta four piece place settings in turquoise. I absolutely love my Fiestaware! We have several extra serving pieces to go with our dishes, but I love that I can dress these dishes up or keep them super casual. If you're in the market for some new dishes, check out the entire Fiesta line at Macy's HERE.
2) Knife block
We have used our J.A. Henckels knife block every day for nearly a decade! This isn't our exact same block, but we definitely plan to stick with the brand when we need to upgrade in a few years. Any couple will find these super useful for dining on steaks, prepping for dinner, or putting the finishing touches on a dish.
3) Pyrex glassware
We received some Corningware dishes when we got married, but they arrived broken, and I never replaced them after returning them. A few weeks ago, Target had a sale on Pyrex dish sets, and I decided to scoop one up. I freaking love them! I use all of the dishes every week to help store leftovers, cut up fruits, or pre-made dinners from my Instant Pot. I have the 18 piece set now, and I'm thinking of getting the mixing bowl set soon, too!
I absolutely love the sheets I received from Target for our wedding, and although I've tried out a few other brands, I keep coming back to Threshold sheets. They're a great value but also super comfortable and durable. Trip recently redid his bedding, and we picked out Threshold sheets for him, too!
5) Pots & pans
I accidentally burned onions in a stock pot over the Christmas holiday and was devastated to have to replace the pot as we've had it for almost a decade! When out searching for a replacement, I was super frustrated by the prices! I so appreciated receiving this investment piece as it really did last, and we've loved the Calphalon brand.
