2. I'm really loving this Oxo Can Opener. Oxo didn't send it to me or ask me to blog about it, but I recently purchased it after our super dinky cheap one lost its ability to open cans. Convenient, right? This one is great though--still inexpensive and incredibly easy to use. I've definitely run into can openers where I literally can't figure out how to use them and I'm happy to say this one caused no trouble!
3. On vacation a few weeks ago I managed to read 8 (!!!) books. It helped that we had two 14-hour car rides and hours of sitting on the beach. I haven't had that much time to read in a long time, so I was sure to take advantage! I'll highlight a few of my favorite reads in upcoming Odds & Ends posts, beginning with The Fault in Our Stars. This was my first book of the trip and I finished it in a matter of hours, sniffling away in the backseat of our rented minivan. It's worth the read, especially if you plan on seeing the movie!
