A Happy Thing and a Sad Thing in Pictures

This is a short post, but I have some pictures to share. FIRST! A happy thing:

We wanted to put a bud next to it to compare, but they only had the "new" cans. Not exactly the same effect. 
You know how it was Father's Day this past weekend? I got my dad a beer cake. How freaking awesome is that?!? Also, it tasted delicious. And then I ate a lot of it and felt sick from the sugar and almost barfed everywhere, but I didn't take a picture of that so this is a happy thing!


Okay, here's the sad thing:
RIP Wine Glass. 
As you may have seen me complain about on twitter, I lost a trusty wine glass this week. No, I did not drunkenly drop it. I lost it to the evil, evil dishwasher. It survived the washing, but broke when I tried to take it out of the rack it was jammed into. 


Sniffle. It's possibly the worst thing ever.


BUT WAIT! Boyfriend is the best. He already bought me a replacement:


It's not good ol' greenie exactly, but it's a very nice wine glass. I take solace in the fact that no wine was lost during greenie's death. That is all.

  1. You put your wine glasses IN THE DISHWASHER??!! Philistine. No wonder your wine tasted like crap. Wash your wine glasses by hand, and your wine will taste better.

    1. Only a man would say, Don't use the dishwasher. We women know that dishwashers are our salvation.

      Love,
      Janie XOXOXO

  2. Whew! At least there's balance in the world and more wine in your new glass. That was a close one.

  3. How appropriate that you almost barfed from eating too much BEER cake. Good thing you weren't driving.
    By the way, I enjoy my wine in red Solo cups.
    That way, no one's the wiser on the interstate.

  4. Beer cakes rock!!
    I am sorry for your loss though. No more dishwasher for your sweet elixir glasses. They deserve TLC. :)

  5. The cake is awesome! Really a great idea :) And I'm glad to see that Boyfriend is maintaining his cuteness and sweetness by gifting your replacements when things break :)

  6. I bought a special wine glass just for me for the summer. It is larger than the average wine glass and it is unbreakable plastic that I got at Wegmans. They are 3 for $10 but i'm just one person, and I have maximum of 2 hands... so one glass it is.

    I can't put out my good wine glasses at parties anymore because Jaclyn will inevitably break something, even if she doesn't drink wine.

  7. Putting the wine glass in the dishwasher is almost as bad as putting ice in the wine...almost...okay, not at all close, but still, you gotta hand wash.
    The cake rocks. And so does Boyfriend for replacing it so quick.

  8. Oops! I put my wine glasses in the dishwasher. It has a special rack for them. They come out all nice and sparkly...and not broken.
    Yay to the boyfriend for saving the day with the new one!

  9. You're doing better than me. I drink out of plastic cups.

    Wow. I should really get more class and get a wine glass.... Dollar store, here I come.

  10. I want that cake, right now! Awesome! Sorry to hear about the death of your wine glass: I can never get too attached to mine because I'm always breaking them in the cleaning process. :/

  11. That is an epically awesome cake!

  12. I have to go with Keith- handwash them wine glasses woman!

    That cake rocks!

  13. I've learned not to get too attached to my wine glasses, but when I find one I like I buy them in bulk. Now stop putting them in the dishwasher and do them by hand.

  14. Love the cake! I have a set of six wine glasses we bought with a gift card we were given for a wedding present over 14 years ago and they're all still in one piece! Mainly because we so rarely use them. It's not that I don't like wine (perish that thought!), it's just that I don't drink it often. I'd rather have a cold beer most of the time. But wouldn't you know I broke one of Hubs' 100+ year old wine glasses which had his family crest on it? Yikes!

  15. You've already been smited for dishwashing your wine glass so I'll refrain. That cake is amazing, as is boyfriend's quick replacement wine glass.

  16. that was the sadest picture I ever saw,,,don't worry I covered my wine glasses virgin eyes.

  17. That cake is the best cake ever for Father's Day. I would've eaten too much of it too. All that sweet, sugary goodness...it is too hard to say no to it, even when you are about to puke it up!

  18. I will mourn greenie by drinking in his honor.

    It's 10:45am... eh, never too late to start...

  19. Jules on Cougartown has lost a few very precious wine glasses. Big Carl just bit the dust in the season finale, I may have cried.....

    1. That's exactly what I was going to mention... first Big Joe and then Big Carl. Such tragedies!

      But you're right, Gia... at least no wine was lost.

      Oh, and that cake's a winner!

  20. Look at you, drinking out of glass, being all classy and shit! All of my cups are of the plastic 'Phineas & Ferb' variety. Jealous?

  21. Hand washing isn't foolproof, I once broke a wine glass trying to dry it with too thick a towel. I think when a wine glass is ready to go, it's gonna break no matter how nice you treat it!

  22. cool cake you got your dad. We had some buckets full of beer and snacks that the store made for customers to buy for father's day. Except they made them on friday, and they coudln't sell them on sunday due to SC's bible belt laws on beer.

  23. I am sorry to hear of your lost. Don't feel guilty over it. I am sure it knew that it was loved.

  24. My wine glasses don't fit in the dishwasher. Why? Because they're giant-ass, they fit nearly half a bottle of wine in them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I didn't breathe until you reassurred me about the wine. Phew!! I never ever put my wine glasses in the dishwasher. I don't trust that bitch. If she wants to break my dishes I'm cool with that. They were hand-me-downs from my grandparents. BORING.

  26. That cake is awesome! Was the top picture part edible, too? If so, what did it taste like? Sugar paper? Inquiring minds!

    P.S. You may have put your wine glass in the dishwasher, but at least you didn't put your laptop into checked luggage like someone that starts with B and ends with S and rhymes with Loggess.

  27. That cake is awesome. I know what I'm getting for my birthday this year.

    Also, this is why we no longer run our wine glasses through the dishwasher. After losing 2 of them, we thought, okay, maybe we should just spend the extra 30 seconds to wash these by hand.

  28. No wine glasses in the dishwasher ever!!!

    Isn't that a movie?

    A horror movie? ;)

    Guess what? You wanna see broken glass? The stupid piece of shit state I live in is so windy it blew my patio table across the lawn and shattered a million death shards into the lawn and I spent the 104 degree day picking up glass from grass and patio. So not awesome.

  29. If boyfriend truly loves and understands you, he would have given you the one that holds an entire bottle if wine. Just sayin.

  30. I may or may not have made a habit of:
    1. Going to wine tastings.
    2. Taking glasses from places when I liked them
    3. Going to wine tastings

    I could have lent you like a billion replacements. You never think to ask me.

  31. Did he only get you one wine glass? Not a set?!?! Just one? LOL.
