I Broke a Wedding Gift

I want to discuss a serious topic this morning--broken wedding gifts. I was putting a wine glass away on the top shelf and accidentally bumped it into another wine glass, which then came crashing down into the sink. It smashed in a million pieces. It was so sad.

This is the wine glass I broke if anyone wants to get me a Christmas present.

If you were a fly on the wall in my kitchen this morning you'd probably find the sight of a bathrobe-clad woman vacuuming her sink pretty hilarious. I, however, was not amused. I dislike cleaning shards of glass off the floor that I normally walk barefoot on. Lesson learned, I won't do the dishes before I've had coffee!

Aside from the mess, it really stinks that I broke one of our wedding gifts. In only six months of marriage, no less. Luckily I have seven other wine glasses, plus eight for red, (we're serious about our Charles Shaw in this house.) And I registered for an extra set of dishes for this very reason. But I'm afraid at the rate I'm going, I'll have nothing left in 30 years!

Have you broke anything off your registry? And if so, do you replace it right away?


  1. Oh no, I'm so sorry! I broke a shower gift- a beautiful Kate Spade platter that I never had the chance to use. I was heartbroken! I keep saying I will use gift cards to replace it but it hasn't happened yet. We're only human & these things will happen.

  2. I'm with ya. We broke two of our dinner plates and still have to replace them, but replace them we will because we found out our pattern is being discontinued at the end of the year! So I sympathize SO MUCH.

  3. So you're saying I don't have to switch to solo cups! Thanks, ladies!
