Drinking in Style

We enjoy drinking wine but our wine glasses suck. Huz bought me a set of nice glasses from Crate and Barrel several years ago, but after who knows how many moves from Chicago apartment to Chicago apartment and, finally, to Nashville house, we're down to 3 of them. This means that whenever we have another couple over for dinner and Huz is trying to show off his culinary skillz (which are quite impressive, if you ask me), either he or I get a sucky, grocery store wine glass that doesn't match the other ones. Kinda puts a damper on the whole Let Us Woo You Over A Sweet Meal evening. So, in addition to getting two new tires on our car yesterday, I scored 6 of these gorgeous new wine glasses at Pottery Barn.

Best part is? They cost me nothing. (I still had balances on 2 gift cards from last Christmas and my birthday.) Love that!

Only problem? They are so tall and lovely that they don't fit in my kitchen cabinets, so now I have to hunt for a rack to hang them from. The things we do to drink in style.

I'm looking forward to this week. First of all, Huz finally comes home tomorrow night, which will be nice. I can handle a night or two alone, but three or more gets old. Four nights alone and I'm going ape shit. I need attention! Talk to me somebody! Come home, Huz!!!


And then there's the fact that I only have a three day work week, which rocks. Cuz you know how much I love my job. Or do you? It's boring and it's cubicle world and it's the 9 to 5. I hate it. Why did I have to graduate college and return to this? Really? Tell me.

And then there's the fun birthday weekend for Huz. This will include a road trip up to Bourbon country (Kentucky) and a night's stay in a Honeymoon suite at a B&B. I have very specific requirements when looking for a B&B: fireplace and Jacuzzi, preferably in the same room. And I got them both! Looking forward to some relaxation and non-sleep activity with my old man. Heh.
