This compost canister. Scott has plans to start a garden this year (now that he's here to take care of it) and he wanted to start a compost pile. While separating compost in the kitchen isn't always a pleasant task, this canister makes it legitimately painless. Seriously. We should've paid $25 for this years ago. We also got compostable liners...it's like taking out the trash, but to the compost bin, not the trash can. It really couldn't be easier. (We got the copper-colored can but I'm way too lazy to look for it online right now.)
Avocado toast. I've seen this around for a very long time but didn't try it myself until a month ago or so. I like avocado on my BLTs so it would make sense that this is good too.
Curling wands. My friend let me borrow hers to try out and I adore it. I'll be looking into buying one soon. It does things to hair that seem to be magic. The curls stay in forever too. I used hairspray one day last week and put my hair in a ponytail over night. The curls were still there in the morning.
Make-up free weekend (i.e. didn't leave the house for 2+ days), but with a fun filter.
This vest. Pictured above. Ugh. Call it drinking the Kool-Aid if you want, but I heard about the Uniqlo vest on the Happier podcast and thought Hmmmm. My parents sent me a fleece Eddie Bauer vest (kind of similar but it's gray and pink) last Christmas and I wore it near every day of 2016. If I didn't have a winter coat on, I had this vest on; it has zippered pockets for both dog remote and cell phone. I wore it all spring, summer, and fall. Walking dogs and doing prairie chores (like shooting snakes), I had this vest on. So I thought, Why not get another one?
My mom was looking for a birthday gift for me, so I mentioned this and it arrived last week. Seriously...it's a keeper. I've been wearing it around the house for days on end. It weighs nothing but it has a down fill so it actually is warm! I get too hot around the house with a sweatshirt on, so this is perfect. I got the beige so it'll match anything, but it does run a bit small. I read the reviews and ordered a medium and it's ideal.
And, since my theme for Fridays is "5" and since I'm tired and have a sore throat and it's
