She's just jealous.......

amylou321

My sister stopped by my house on her way home to drop off some soap and pick up some scented wax cubes. She was here during my post dinner apocalypse, so my sink was full. She is not a judge of cleanliness, as her house is almost always in disarray......but she did feel the need to make a comment on it.......

She said it looked like Barbies Malibu Maid went on strike......

If she saw the contents of my dishwasher at that moment.......well she wouldn't have been surprised. Its all pink too.

Did not stop her from taking me up on my offer of a brownie,made in my barbie pink brownie pan......😛

Shes just bitter because her kitchen stuff is all boring white and gray and whatever and blah blah blah......

The appropriate thing would have been for her to offer to help wash dishes, sheesh. You have a colorful kitchen, plus, you have brownies, so double bonus.

And, by the way, the brownies look delicious.

I'd gladly take a brownie too... even if it was made in a pink pan. 😄

I think your sister's comment is rather humorous, and I would have had a good laugh with her. When my sister visits, she does do cleaning in my kitchen and house, as she is rather compulsive that way, and I am not. I think it is worse when sisters actually do start cleaning what they find unacceptable rather than just comment about it.

BTW, I cook a lot - my sister cooks as little as possible.

She is keeping score! For whatever reason. I see and hear those kind of things from my adult daughters. I am an only child, so it is fascinating for me to watch the sibling jealously. LOL

I hate dishes in the sink so when I built my house I put in 2 large single bowl sinks and 2 dishwashers. Never have a messy kitchen either - amazing how many dishes you go through in a single day!

Yes. I laughed when she said it. I am constantly being teased for my pink compulsion.

She really has no room to critique my housekeeping and she knows it. She has a husband, 6 kids and lives on a working farm. So its always a mess. There have been many times that I have been at her house and a random chicken got in and ran through or a baby goat that had been rejected by its mother and she had to take in and care for escaped its room to wander through.She would never really say anything about it to put me down. Well, not about my messy post meal kitchen anyway. Other things, yes. But not that.

Your pinkness is WONDERFUL! Your a delight Amy! And....that brownie looks delish! Family is always a little jealous. That was funny tho. Not everyone cooks from scratch as was mentioned earlier.....it's messy! ♥

That's actually a pretty funny comment! Doesn't sound like she was being judgmental and I'm glad you didn't take it that way. Glad you laughed.

I LOVE your sister’s sense of humor! Her comment was witty (defined as “quick and inventive verbal humor”). I despair that wittiness is a dying art.

Fabulous looking brownies!

Nancyofnc, my dream kitchen would definitely have two dishwashers, that is so brilliant. One for clean, one for dirty. No need to empty the darn silverware basket ever again... :-)

I love color. When we were looking for a place to buy, I saved pictures of a house that I found for sale, because I loved how colorful it was. I loved the house but it was located on the Brazos River and I wanted to get far away from flood plains. When I build my little house, I am going to make it colorful and use a lot of my old collected things in it. I only have to please myself.


I love your pink kitchen. A friend of mine has a vintage pink Chambers range, and she offered to give it to me, but it would cost so much to restore it. It is expensive to buy a vintage stove already restored, but I am putting aside the money to do that.

I think all that pink is very cheerful. My color for bakeware is cobalt blue glass. I love pink too though. Some people are very colour connected some people aren't. It's the usual the ones who aren't don't get the ones who are. :-).

I agree your sister's comment was too funny and I'm glad you found it so as well..

Now I really really want to live in Malibu and have a Malibu Barbie Maid. Hopefully who enjoys the work and doesn't go on strike but that's stretching it isn't it. Maybe if Malibu Barbie threw a beach party for her maid every so often they would get along.

Yep, I made cheesecake brownies yesterday and the sink looked about the same. But now I feel deprived because I used a boring glass pan instead of a pretty pink one. : )

I would have laughed alongside your sister. Sometimes it's funny cause it's true.


I haven't been to my sister's house in a few years. Last time I came in and cleaned it while she was at work. The time before that I took down the old wallpaper in her dining room. My husband sent her a robot vacuum for my birthday and a new cell phone for my birthday before that. It's done in a joking way. She does stuff at my house too.

My sister won't have anything to do with me or anyone else. I think her comment was funny and she's lucky to have gotten one of those brownies.

I too love color! DH, not so much. I have Fiesta Ware, the more colors the better.

Not a big fan of pink, but I AM a big fan of color!

The 1914 home we bought 4 years ago probably has 3 colors in each room! Kind of wild and crazy!

The realtors said part of the reason it wasn't selling was because of all the colors! That's what helped draw us to the house!

We also noticed most of our liberal/artist type friends loved the colors and our more conservative friends didn't like the colors so much!

Off to make some brownies!

I love color, will have to check out the Flamingo pink Fiestaware. But also part of me is traditional. A brownie has to be brown, I ain't gonna eat no pink brownie.

Your brownie looks delicious. Too bad we aren't neighbors. I would wash those dishes for brownies any day.

nancy-Jane, My house is like yours: many strong colors in all rooms.... not one wall is any version of white. I think, when I eventually go to sell, I'll be told to paint all walls white.... to which I will respectfully decline. 😁

My kitchen is a riot of color, but there are five shades of white in my entryway. :). I like both.

Lucille, would you eat a strawberry blondie?

So do you use the pink DW liquid too? When I used to mop up at a restaurant we had a pink liquid for floors, to which we would add bleach and boiling water ....

Be proud your full sink is color coordinated!

It Is rare my sink is empty so I wouldn’t judge. All my sisters are way more meticulous than me so if I saw something in their sinks I might say something snarky just because!

I covet your ribbed mixing bowl!

That's funny, all the colorful kitchens. I'm the opposite, I like white and neutrals and when I wanted a white kitchen Elery compromised with a very light tan. It looks yellow in some lights, which I dislike, but I hate picking out paint, I'd prefer a root canal. My youngest daughter says I'm the only person she knows that could have a stroke painting one room beige, LOL. We did just paint the living room light gray with white trim.

And yet, I like my Fiesta Ware. My purse is pink, very light carnation pink. Does that count?
