For a variety of reasons, I’ve decided to slim down my “High Five Friday” name, and keep it at just “Five Things” for the week.  Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!  Also, as we all know, I’m having a hard time posting “High Five Friday’s” on Friday…and like I mentioned in my first High Five Friday post, I don’t even like high fives.  I find them awkward in most instances, and only acceptable during certain events (as in sporting or drinking…am I right, oooorrrr…yea, I’m right).  So anyway, Five Things, it is {most of the time posted on Friday}.  Same idea, different name.  Let’s get on with it.

Now that we’re off of that tangent, here are my Five Things for the week. 

My ‘Mater

I just recently discovered that I have given birth to a tomato.  I honestly never thought this day would come, and I am so proud to call it my own.  I’ve felt very bad for my tomato plant because it didn’t get much {if any} sunlight on my back porch…a fact I wasn’t aware of until I moved in.  I felt as bad as a person that gets a dog but never has time to put it outside feels.  I didn’t even give it a chance, but still it persevered.  Next time I will have better, if not more strategic, luck with my tomato plants.  Until then, mi madre can keep sending hers to me via D-Town {that’s Durham, for those of you who don’t know…keep ’em coming Ellen}.  I will continue to love and nurture my one, baby, sunlight-seeking, tomato, and see what happens.

Food Storage Containers

Yes.  Food Storage Containers.  And I don’t mean “tupperware” {oh paahh-leeeaaasssee}.  Tupperware, Shmupperware.  Don’t get me wrong, I agree with and love the presence of tupperware, but I’m talking about creative food storage containers.  I’m talking about these babies, and they make my fridge look good {fridge accesories…that’s a thing, right?}.  When I was in HomeGoods the other day, I saw these two treasures.  For a grand total of $5 and I decided to splurge {I cancelled my ipsy scrip so I can live like this now}, for both avocados and onions…the two things I have on standby 24/7.  Now I not only eat healthy, but I eat healthy in style {insert smiley face emoji that wears the sunglasses}.

This what it looks like when full…

And then seal shut. 

The Ninja

The holy grail. Need I say more?  I finally got a ninja.  Smoothies and cauliflower rice fo dayyyzzz.

My Headboard

After the whole “pay $65 for an old, green door” debacle at The Flea Market.  I vented to my friend, Ali, who, in my opinion is an expert flea marketer.  She suggested that if that was something I was looking for, her husband Blake, could build it.  At the time I was thrilled and of course jumped at the opportunity.  Then, just yesterday she sent me this picture…

“Ready to be salted and sanded”

Now, I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF!!!  I cannot wait until I can call this mine, and Ali and Blake are so sweet for building it for me.

Family Visits

Last Sunday Ryan and I were lucky enough to have our parents come visit for the day.  Even though we’re all so busy and have crazy schedules, it’s nice that Durham is only 2 hours away {and an extremely easy drive}.  It was a short visit but it’s always nice to see the parents and spend some time exploring/showing them around certain parts of Charlotte…hopefully they can come back again soon!!

So there you have it, my five things for the week!

What are your five things?  Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!
