Lindsay Doesn’t Love…

I know I posted a pretty long list of things I loved this past week, but here’s one thing I didn’t love:

…when the hubby opened the freezer Sunday morning and discovered the 4 cans of Diet Pepsi that he stuck in there in preparation for a party and forgot about had turned our freezer into this:

Which then required us to take everything out and clean the entire thing…

While the dogs excitedly licked up all of the Diet Pepsi ice chunks, we briefly contemplated just buying a whole new fridge/freezer.


…but we did think about it!

It was all good in the end because now our freezer is super organized!

PS…we don’t normally have that many frozen pizzas…but we just hosted party AND Costco just had a coupon so we stocked up :)

Have you ever had an exploding pop disaster?!

  1. Wow! Your freezer is WAY too organized now :) I can’t recall an exploding soda disaster of that extreme, but when I was younger I remember throwing cans of Fresca on the ground to purposely pop a hole in the side and make a “geyser.”

    I was weird even then.

  2. Oh! What a mess!! I think that’s happened to us once or twice with beer bottles and it’s awful to clean up. Great opportunity to organize though!

  3. omg—that must have really sucked! That has never happened in my freezer…but what a sticky mess.
    At least you got a nice clean organized freezer out of it!

  4. Oh my, you poor thing! That is just awful! Luckily that hasn’t happened to me (yet), however, I did spill over a jug of olive oil that I had in a hard-to-reach spot in my cabinet. yeah, it was fun :)

  5. Eeep! That does NOT look fun! And we stock up on frozen pizzas too when we can get a deal. Sometimes they are just needed.

  6. ughhhh, i HATE when that happens! it’s happened to me sadly more than once – and one time even with some wine (yes, i like my red wine cold – i know that’s not the “proper” way to drink it). i love your organized freezer though! :) it looks great.

  7. You and your hubby sound and look way too happy/relaxed. I on the other hand would be cursing every 5 minutes. Whoops! PS I guess I could appreciate the silver lining of a fabulously organized freezer! :) I don’t think one can have too much pizza. But, again. I’m a weird one.

  8. Oh no!!! That looks like such a big clean-up job, but at least you saw the positive :) Your hubby looks like he was having a grand ol’ time! Love that you’re able to laugh at this stuff. And at least it wasn’t beer! 😉

  9. I would killllll Sean if he did that! Ugh what a mess to clean up!

  10. Oh no! I left a glass coke bottle in my car overnight in winter and it exploded and it was terrible. Like you, I turned it into something good and cleaned my car like crazy!

  11. Wow I would freak out-it had to of sounded like a bomb going off!!!! Hello pizza lovers;)

  12. oh man that’s rough! if it means anything your freezer is lookin amazing now!

  13. oh no! in college, i left a 12 pack of diet coke in the trunk of my car…and it froze. 12 cans exploded all over the inside of my trunk. it was a huge mess, but made for some good pics. my roommates & i tried a can after it thawed out and it tasted soooo gross, it’s like some parts separate out when frozen? weird.

  14. I actually “gasped” when I saw your freezer. HOLY COW! That would be crazy bad to open the freezer and see that. What a good husband to make it all better. :)
