Better Left Unsaid

A couple of weeks ago, I got the most brilliant idea: wine.

I thought it would be a good idea to drink a bottle of wine a week, and take a seasonal picture of it, and blog about the whole thing.

And then I got this paranoid fear that I would be seen as an alcoholic. (My family is extremely moderate about alcohol... mostly because both of my grandpas were alcoholics. But then again it was that time in history and maybe they were just hipsters. Who knows.)

But then I realized that I really don't drink all that much wine. Like, a bottle a week would be way above my average.

Oh well, it was a good idea. One that tons of people already do, so not even all that original.

In the first week of April, I drank this, purchased at Trader Joe's. Am I the only one who wants to drive the car on the label?


And last night I drank this, which could be called a classy version of Boone's Farm. Only not so much.
I believe that could be considered "wine product" because the sugar makes it disqualified from wine roundup. True story.

-------------------------------

In another obviously underworked portion of my brain, I thought about making a food blog where I eat only deliciously disgusting food.

I could start with this guy.
Nom nom. Barf barf. Too. much. sugar.

You know... some ideas are probably better left unsaid.

Like all of the above.

Do you have any brilliant ideas today? (Cause clearly I'm fresh out. Bummer.)

Happy Thursday!

Dude cracking up over the pretty pictures you took with the wine bottles. I can just see you trying to find the perfect flower and pose for the wine bottle. It's very artistic.

You are definitely not the only one who wants to drive that car.

Im a donut freak! I love them. Seriously. Down where we live, no good donut stores. None. I have to wait until I go to Dallas to get donuts. I was contemplating getting donuts on my way to work tomorrow seeing as it is Friday and you just solidified my decision. Thank you. :)

Blackeyed Susan said...

Blogging about your weekly alcohol adventures...genius! The caterpillar makes me want to vom...or dip potato chips in that frosting. yummm

Lucky in Love said...

I always think about doing a food blog...or at least a post a week about cupcakes...but how could I make cupcakes every single week!?! I would be huge! And what a waste giving all that away all the time. SAD :(

Andhari said...

designHER Momma said...

I love this wine idea (btw - was it any good? Love wine from TJ's). And really, a bottle a week? Now if it was a bottle a day...

McMommy said...

Oooooh!!! Please keep up the wine posts, please! Also? Can you make them relatively affordable wines? Like $12 and under? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.

Um. You know. For people who drink wine...occasionally. Um yeah, occasionally.

sweethomeamy said...

Hahaha! Good ideas, though yeah, probably too much sugar! :-)

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

Yum... doughnuts. :)

At the risk of sounding like an alcoholic in an effort to make you not sound like an alcoholic... My oldest brother is a wine important. Guess what I spent my year in San Fran doing...Drinking wine at fabulous restaurants. Good thing I worked out a lot or I would have gain a little (lot) of weight. My dad (a wine collector) and other bro (who works in a place that sells wine, high gravity beers and delicious bourbons among other things) brew beer. If you ever need something yummy to drink, just ask. We can find you something.

PS have you ever looked at a blog called "This is why you're fat?" I get scared when I think some of the things look good.

Kristin said...

A classy version of Boone's...You are too cute! I may or may not have killed quite a bit of Arbor Mist in college. Ah ha ha

rosiecampbell said...

Always love good wine! But I could leave that donut behind.

Becky said...

LOL! Is that a donut caterpillar! I don't drink wine I prefer vodka...but I am not an alcoholic...I repeat...not an alcoholic! You know Starbucks in my drug of choice :)

Mindy said...

Ha that donut probably has enough sugar to last you a week!

Sara said...

I personally don't think a bottle a week is too much. But, if you don't drink that often you could make it a monthly feature...

Laura said...

I LOVE that idea for a wine a week post. In fact, I might just have to borrow it from you. I am such a wine lover & always suffering from blog- writers block. I just found your blog today & I am definitely adding it to my reader!! So fun :)
