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!

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

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. See below for details.

Original post from 2013:

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...
