Our Anniversary

Monday was me and my Sexy Nerd's anniversary. We've been married 3 whole years! And, since our wedding was on the 4 year anniversary of our first date, we've been together a whopping 7 years!

Crazy.

After Sexy Nerd went to bed on Sunday night, I got started decorating.

I rescued this banner from the trash pile when cleaning my boss's house last week.
Have I mentioned that I work in a dental office?
That's a blog post for another day.

 
What a fun surprise when you come downstairs!
 
 Sexy Nerd gets up ridiculously early for work. I made him a batch of breakfast burritos to heat up in the morning and pre-filled the coffee maker for him.

 I framed a group of photos for him, including this collage. It features a note from the back of a photo he mailed to me back when we first started dating, when he was living in Michigan.

Ta da!

Next on my agenda was a little chalkboard door decor.
I had more anniversary scheming to do, but at almost midnight, it seemed time to wrap things up.

That, and Sexy Nerd opened the bedroom door upstairs and yelled for me to "QUIT BANGING THINGS AROUND DOWN THERE!"
I jotted down a note and went to bed.

The reward for my anniversary surprise? After seeing everything in the morning, Sexy Nerd came back upstairs feeling very foolish for getting mad.

Muah ha ha!
(My evil laugh)

Sexy Nerd wasn't about to be outdone though. Look what was delivered to my work!

Okay, guilt may very well have been at play here.




Isn't he such a sweetie? On a side note, a dental office is no place to have flowers sent. All day, people would walk up, SQUEEZE THE PETALS!!! and remark that they were real. Surprising when you consider all the plastic flowers that smell just like real roses and sit in vases of real water, right?

*Sigh*

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
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?

Ultra-modern??

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...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...

6/25/17 Update: The fireplace is stone, but it's ver…
