Frappuccino Explosion

You know that commercial where the dad and the teen daughter are in the kitchen creating a volcano for a science project, and the mom walks in just as the volcano explodes all over her kitchen? Yeah.....

A while back, my mother-in-law bought me this frappuccino maker for Christmas.


I love it...it's awesome. It makes DELICIOUS frappuccinos. However, I don't use it much because it takes a little bit of time to get everything in the mixer and set it all up, clean it up, etc. So today, I thought to myself, "I'm going to make myself a little treat." You know, just put the ingredients in, push start, and then have a delicious treat. If only it would have gone that easily....

You see, I put the lid on the container backwards. I mean, I have made several frappuccinos with this machine before, so why should I read the instructions? I know what I'm doing, right? Wrong.

At first, the machine acts like a normal coffee maker. It filters the espresso, and the espresso fills up the clear container. Then, the light starts blinking to tell you it's about to start "blending." This machine is awesome, but the blending part of it is super loud and a bit scary....so when the light started blinking, I even said outloud to myself, "Here comes the scary part." Little did I know just how scary that was going to be....

People, it started blending (with the lid on backwards), and there was a frappuccino explosion all over my kitchen. Dripping off my white cabinets, all over my clothes, covering my microwave and other appliances, and all over the floor!!!!!!! I just stood there for a minute, staring at the mess once I had frantically turned the machine off. It was one of those, "What the @#&$ just happened????" moments. You know, when something scary happens and you freeze and just need to take it in for a minute before you know how to react? Yeah, that was me.

Then, I finally came to my senses and started cleaning it all up, laughing at myself and shaking my head the whole time while saying, "I cannot BELIEVE that just happened." After cleaning it up and wiping down the cabinets and walls, all I could think of was, "I really should have taken pictures of that so I could have scrapped it." LOL! True sign of a scrapper, right?

So now I need to go mop my floors really well because they are STICK-AYYYY. The good news is, my house totally smells like Starbucks right now. All I need is to put on some Nora Jones, sit at my laptop while drinking my frapp, and pretend I'm there.

Happy Friday, everyone!
