5 Random Things That You Will (Hopefully!) Enjoy Reading

First of all, I'd like to say another great big THANK YOU to all you lovely people who left comments for my last post! You've gotten me all psyched up to do some serious blogging!

Also, instead of continuing to whine and complain about how my blog's button is way too big, I stopped being lazy for just a few seconds and fixed it.


<div align="left"><a href="" title="Lamb Around" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="Lamb Around" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

Better, isn't it? Ah, I feel so accomplished today!
Okay, here is that list:

1. The weather in Albuquerque is bizarre during the spring. We took the dogs for a walk the other day and I was able to wear shorts and a tank top. Less than 24 hours later, it snowed.

2. Sexy Nerd and I have as many fruit trees as we can cram into our cookie-cutter neighborhood backyard. Last year, we didn't get a single cherry on either of our cherry trees because it froze after the trees blossomed. We already have blossoms on our nectarine tree this year. To prevent losing all the fruit, we covered the branches with trash bags. Pica went out her doggy door last night and freaked out, barking and running back into the house ASAP, leaving a pitiful trail of pee behind her.

"Look out, Pica, the garbage bag Boogyman is in our backyard!"

3. We went to see Cabaret last weekend. Can someone please help me understand how this musical ever made it to the stage, let alone how it has managed to stick around for so many years? There was no story! Which character should we have been rooting for? Certainly not the guy who punches his girlfriend in the face, right? (and they never addressed this!!!) If I had to choose a part where Cabaret officially lost me, it would have to be the "2 ladies" scene. If you've seen it, you're almost certainly cringing right now. If you haven't seen it, lucky you.

4. In Blogger, there is an "Amazon Associates" box to the right when I write a post. It has a box for typing names of items I might like to feature here. I don't know how this happened, but the search term is currently "and peeing and". I haven't clicked that box at all.

5. Allergies suck! It's so unfair! I used to be one of the lucky people, telling all my stuffy-nosed friends about how I never have allergies. All of a sudden, I'm suffering along with everyone else. My throat is sore and it feels like someone is squeezing the top of my nose, between my eyes. My nose is dry and stuffy and runny all at the same time (how is that possible?!) If I weren't feeling so darn crappy, I'd plan a getaway for me and Sexy Nerd. Please let me know if you live somewhere with a short (or non-existent, if that's possible) allergy season.

Think you can't suffer from allergies when the weather is like this?
Think again.

I just proofread everything above. After reading #5, maybe it is a little bit fair. I didn't intend to sound like such a brat. It must have been the Benadryl talking.
It still sucks though.

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…
