UPDATE 2: The OXO Steel measuring cups have been delivered. The thank you note watch is in full effect. FYI Mr. and Mrs. McCann,… this is all in good fun. Enjoy your registry item, shoot us an email, and we’ll call off the wolves!
UPDATE: The OXO Steel measuring cups have shipped and are en route to the McCann’s. I understand they have a trip to St. Louis this week for All Star festivities, so hopefully this will make it to them before they depart. Don’t let us down UPS. We’re counting on you…
In the original Brian and Ashley McCann post, we threw up a link to the happy couple’s wedding registry site. We jokingly challenged any reader interested in helping the newly* married couple fill out their registry should do so. (*newly is relative, as they were married December 1, 2007). Let’s not kid ourselves,.. they are a new couple just starting out. There’s no doubt that the McCann’s need all of our help to furnish their assuredly tiny home.
Today we answered our own challenge.
The image below is a copy of our order confirmation for helping the not-so-newlywed’s to complete their registry. Yes, we did pick the cheapest item on there, but hey, it’s still more than what we’ve earned on this site so far (click some ads, folks!).
We put our money where our mouth is, and now the waiting game begins. If I’ve learned anything reading Dear Abby every morning, it’s that you always send a thank you when you receive a gift. The McCann’s have been provided with contact information, and due to this, one should expect a simple thank you note. We will be updating this post with further details as they emerge, but we genuinely hope to hear from Mr. and Mrs. McCann.
Also, congratulations on your wedding and all that good luck stuff. Here’s to health, happiness, and a new set of steel measuring cups. We sure hope they come in handy.
