On mobile so sorry if there are weird formatting issues.
I (25F) have celiacs so I can’t eat any gluten. My BF (27M) has two full siblings and a half sister. I’m pretty close to his two full siblings (22M and 24F) since they live in the same town as us and are around the same age as us, but I don’t really know his half sister (40F) bc she lives in another state and is much older than us. (This has nothing to do with her being his half sister versus his full sibling, I’m only using half/full to make it easier to identify who I’m talking about.)
One of my BF’s full siblings had a small birthday party and got cupcakes from a local bakery. All of my BF’s family (except maybe his half sister) knows I’m celiacs and they’re usually really good about getting me gluten free food. I saw that there was a separately boxed cupcake marked gluten-free so I assumed it was mine and started eating it. However, I grabbed it out of a grocery store tote bag next to the food (but I thought it was just a bag of party supplies since it had forks/napkins in it too). My BF’s half sister came up to me and demanded to know why I was eating that cupcake since it was clearly in her “purse.” I said I thought it was mine since it’s gluten free and I didn’t realize that bag was her purse. She said she was doing a gluten free diet and had put the cupcake in her bag to “claim” it. She then made a really big fuss for the rest of the party about how she didn’t get to have a cupcake.
I later asked my BF’s full sister if that gluten free cupcake was supposed to be for me and she confirmed that yes, they had bought it for me. My BF and his full siblings think their half sister was being kind of dramatic, but say I was kind of the AH for at least not offering to share it with her and for going into her purse. I maintain I did nothing wrong bc: 1) I have freaking celiacs and I literally couldn’t eat any of the other cupcakes; 2) She doesn’t even have to avoid gluten, she’s choosing to do so voluntarily; 3) They bought the cupcake for me, not her; 4) her “purse” was a grocery store tote bag next to all the food and filled with party supplies.
My BF’s half sister already didn’t like me and apparently has chosen this hill to die one. She’s demanding that I apologize for “rummaging through her purse and violating her privacy” and saying that I owe her a cupcake. AITA for refusing to apologize and saying I did nothing wrong? Obviously, I wouldn’t go into another person’s purse or eat someone else... keep reading on reddit ➡
A simple blueberry muffin could be one of the best tasting pastries in the world. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee or tea and you will feel great! A cupcake is just too much with all the frosting and sprinkels and stuff people put on them. They are too sweet and makes me sick afterwards. Also it's difficult to eat them without getting the frosting all over your face. I would chose a muffin over a cupcake anytime.
This week answered the question that nobody asked,
”on a scale of 1 to ‘not at all’, can Emily pull off high waisted baggy jeans?”
They are angel food cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and I put two raspberries on top of each one. It looks super pretty. It didn't take me much time to make.
But no one is eating them and it makes me feel a little sad.
This week on the antique pot blog...
Im 20M and my dad (58M) is on wife #5 (27f). Young wife I know but whatever I’ve got used to the weird even though she’s literally old enough to be like a big sister. They’ve been together 3 years. Most his marriages don’t last longer than 2-5 years so who knows how much longer. So yeah he has a habit of getting married off the bat with someone new since my parents split when I was a baby. Like his first wife I actually liked her. After his 3rd I didn’t bother. I like baking so for Mother’s Day I made cupcakes for my mom and my grandma when we all went to have breakfast. It was some other family like my cousins and my dad ended up coming too. My mom sometimes includes him in family stuff so that I also spend time with him.
I gave the cupcakes to them both and my dad and his wife just sat there not saying anything. I talked to my dad a couple days ago and turns out he’s been mad at me for leaving my “stepmom” out of it and she just felt embarrassed and awkward the whole time there. He says I owe an apology for excluding her when I never had a problem giving gifts to my stepdad for Father’s Day.
I told my dad the difference is that my stepdad has been around since I was 13 and i wouldn’t view someone who’s a few years older than me as a stepmom to wanna give a gift to on Mother’s Day. My dad hung up on me. He still says I was very hurtful and need to apologize. Still feels like I didn’t really do anything wrong but since he’s being pouty not talking to me I wanted to ask if I was an asshole for leaving her out of it?
