10 Random Things, Just For The Heck Of It

1. Sexy Nerd and I went to see I love you, you're perfect, now change at Popejoy last weekend. Our review? It was good.

2. Sexy Nerd and I went to see Bravo Broadway! yesterday afternoon, which was presented by the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra. Our Bravo Broadway! review? It was outstanding! (and, at $10 a seat, a heck of a deal)

3. Sexy Nerd is looking over my shoulder as I write this, which is quite distracting. I told him that the average NMSO musician makes $16,000 a year. He says "Damn. I should've kept playing my trombone". I never knew he used to play the trombone!

4. We had Papa Johns pizza for dinner last night. One large with all pepperoni and one large with half ham and half banana peppers. The store was much more clean than any Pizza Hut or Little Caesars I've ever been to.

5. Biscuit has become "too lovey", according to Sexy Nerd.

6. I have been going back and adding photos to old posts. For example: Seychelles

7. Pica was just busted sneaking over to my Fairytale Brownies. No, Pica! Those are my Fairytale Brownies!!!

8. I titled this as a list of 10 items, but I really don't have anything else to say. might snow tonight! As much as I hate the cold weather, I don't want it to warm up too early. Last winter, the weather got so nice that our cherry trees started producing cherries, which all froze during the next snowstorm. I want some cherries this year!

9. Did you know that almonds are a quick, perfect snack that will keep you full and provide a healthy dose of Vitamin E? Now you know.

10. I have never seen Little Shop of Horrors. After seeing Bravo Broadway!, I reserved the DVD from our local library. I was hoping they would have it on CD so that I can listen to it in my car, but oh well. Instead, I reserved a David Sedaris CD. It's terrific that the library has such a vast selection, but after watching the last DVD we checked out, Bruno, we couldn't help thinking that there may be a better use for our tax dollars. Bruno has absolutely no place at the public library! Avoid Bruno at all costs!!! Incidently, Sexy Nerd and I both loved Borat.

11. (bonus!) Sexy Nerd says that he did not love Borat, but that it had its moments. Who didn't root for Borat to get his Pamela?

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

These Amerisleep reviews are NOT a sponsored post. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my Liberty Bed for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.

*6/17/17 Update*  Since publishing my original review, Amerisleep has started a new referral program. If you order through my link (THANK YOU!) you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! There is almost always a promo code available on the Amerisleep website, so if there's not a good deal today, check back tomorrow.
If you buy through my link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus that I can use toward purchasing other memory foam products for the house we're about to break ground on hopefully any day nowwe're finally building (!!!), so placing your order through my link would be so helpful, especially as we're a bit (a lot!) over budget already. What's a better compliment than plannin…

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:

Also known as "EEEK!" and "Oooh, Ahhh"
Not too shabby, right? To be fair, the "before" is extra bad because the Je…

Dream Home Dreaming

We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?


The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
