No food today, all. The past couple of weeks have been nothing but house stuff as I try to fill an empty space with my own taste and flare. It's going to be a long process due to an almost wiped out savings account but the goal is to grab the essentials and make it as livable as possible for the time being. I've learned that trying to furnish an entire home as a single woman is hard to do! No husband here to help pay for the bed, couch, dining table, fridge, washer and dryer. But I am constantly reminded to take baby steps and luckily I have a very supportive family to help in this overwhelming but fun process. Which takes me to the controversial question:
Is a Housewarming Registry acceptable in today's society?
It's perfectly acceptable for a newly wed couple to have a registry, so why do we still see slight cringes when a housewarming registry is brought up? We shower a bride and groom with presents, because we are celebrating their new journey of love and adulthood (usually). But in today's society it is becoming more common to see people like me who are trying to find and establish their own life before building it with someone else. Young women (and men) are becoming more independent and I believe THAT is also something to celebrate. You obviously know which way I would go, but I want to hear your thoughts. Yay or nay on housewarming registries? Do you find them acceptable or tacky?
