If divorce is issued from the man, words will be enough for divorce. If divorce is issued from the woman, words are not enough and will not have an effect on the nikaah. (Qudoori, kitaabun nikaah)
Because in your scenario the words were uttered by your wife, it will not affect your nikaah, but such words should be avoided regardless.
