I was able to enjoy a relaxing & laid back weekend with my man, which NEVER happens, since he typically gets scheduled to work either Saturday or Sunday. But as it turned out we had two whole days of togetherness and it was blissful. We did a little shopping and found ourselves an ottoman for the living room that was marked down in clearance at American Signature, we ran some errands, read, napped, watched some football, and had some serious grubbin BBQ at a local East Nashville spot.

As the weekend was winding down and we had just finished storing all the Christmas & Thanksgiving boxes up in the attic, I was in the mood for a yummy drink and decided to whip up some up Virgin Strawberry Daiquiris. YUM.

What should have been a fairly foolproof process, turned into a bit of a fiasco.

See our lovely little Cuisinart Blender? Well apparently I loaded too much ice in to begin with and it wasn't blending well. I quickly got frustrated that the ice wasn't being crushed and had to jab the stuff around with my wooden spoon to get some cooperation. Then disaster struck.
Oops. Strawberry Daiquiri splattered all over me, the cabinets, the dogs, the counter tops and yes, even my ceiling. I may or may not have said a bad word. Oh well, there was still enough in the blender for Jason to have a glass, plenty on the floor for the dogs to enjoy and I still had enough to start a new batch for myself.
Yummy huh honey?
What that? Oh nothing, just a few wood chips blended into the drink - just think of it as more organic and you probably won't even notice it.
Oops. Or maybe not. We had to pour his drink into the strainer and there was quite a bit of shredded wooden spoon in there. My bad. Love you mean it!

Virgin blended beverages. amatuer. That scenarion should only happen when you are on your third batch with rum in them. Haha. At least we have moved past the FUNK. gees. When are you going to write about the fantastic time you had with your family at Christmas and post fun pictures?

Wood spoon splinters in the drink? This gives me hope that I'm not the only one who makes mistakes like that. Hilarious. Yes, so glad to get a blog!!! And that weekend sounds awesome. I got to chat with Jase for a few minutes yesterday, he sounded pretty I see why.

Hilarious story! This kind of thing happens to me with my mixer. Too much liquid and not enough dry ingredients = disaster. My family often makes fun of me upon reflection. :)
