Trash Cans

You know your life is boring or crazy or both when you get excited about a new kitchen trash can. I have been wanting a stainless steel kitchen trash can for quite some time (before Christmas actually). But I just hadn't found the right one. And, they are not cheap. I got a 20% off coupon from Bed Bath Beyond and I knew exactly what I was going to get with it!!!!! Bryan had his last final last night so I zoomed down to Norman and shopped while he was in class. We met afterward to celebrate (nothing big, just eating at Saltgrass Steakhouse) no more classes until August!!! Yippee I have him back!!! I bet I was standing in front of the trash cans for 10 minutes and then looked over 2 types for 10-15minutes more!!!! I'm a dork. It was hard. Here's what I had to choose from. Too many choices.....

Here's what I decided on:

It is a finger print proof stainless steel (It works. I tested it with my own fingerprints!!) trash can. The can looks white in this picture but the one I have is all stainless steel. I liked the semi round look.

Here's where I'm going tonight:

Roman Nose State Park. My family is meeting my Aunt and Uncle there tomorrow and Bryan had the idea of going up tonight after work and tent camp. I'm excited. We haven't done that in a long time. I've checked.....and the comfort stations do have electricity so I can use my chi flat iron so I will look halfway decent!!! And, they do have running water. I hope I get to see some gorgeous views. Both of us are looking forward to some seclusion and opportunities to talk and talk and talk. Due to his schedule the past 3 weeks we haven't had a lot of uninterrupted, undistracted time. We may go hiking. I haven't done that in a while but I'm game to do whatever gets me time with my man!!

I am ready to go camping! That is a favorite pasttime in our house. I have been afraid to get anything stainless steel with two kids! I did not know that they made some that resisted fingerprints!!! Do they make any that resist marker, crayon, and anything else my boys get into?

Thanks for your prayers. They mean a lot to me. If you are a dork, then I am, too, I definitely understand the joys of stainless steel trash cans! But, fingerprint free stainless steel, that is even better!!!!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am praying for you!!!!

I love the trash can. A few years ago I found a really cute red one kinda like that one and just had to have it!
Although I'm from Oklahoma, I'm not sure where Roman Nose is. Hopefully not anywhere near where all the tornadoes were on Sat.???
It's been crazy here lately, huh?
I pray you and your man were blessed with much favor from God over the weekend.
P.S. I love shopping in Norman!
Have a blessed week.
