Pizza Soup

Last night was my turn to make dinner. Sexy Nerd wanted pizza, but I still wasn't feeling quite up to that after having my wisdom teeth out on New Years Eve. So, we had Pizza Soup, which is fast & easy.

Sexy Nerd thought this was a pretty crummy alternative to pizza, especially since he doesn't really like soup. However, he did say that "for soup, it's not bad".

I'm having my stitches removed today, so maybe there's some real pizza on the horizon!

Hmm, something went horribly wrong with my photo here. Tasty looking soup though.

In true Pizza Soup form though, it's much more tasty with mozzarella cheese! See that shiny liquid clinging to the side of the bowl? That's flavor.

Poor, forever-starved Sexy Nerd. Assured that he would waste away to nothing on a meal of Pizza Soup, (didn't he see all the "flavor" above?!?) I also made him a quick, easy sweet potato pie, all for himself. No, none of the foods we eat typically go well together.

Around here, we like to cut back on dishes to wash whenever possible. Eating directly from the pan is not only acceptable; it's encouraged.

Recipes coming soon - otherwise I'm going to be late for work today. Happy Friday, everyone!

And wish me luck at the oral surgeons office! Does it hurt to have stitches removed? The ones we use at work dissolve on their own and I've never had stitches before.

*Post-Stitches Update*
Having your stitches removed sucks! And, per Dr. McConnell, I have to blast my "craters" (craters!?) with salt water for the next 2 weeks. When will this all be over? I want my pizza and I want it now!

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.

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:

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…
