Best in Show Nominees (and my fave Super Bowl commercial)

6/3/12 Update: The video has been removed from the interwebs. Aaaaaaaw man!

First up, I have to post this because:
  1. I have watched it at least 30 times since last night and still laugh every time.
  2. Some people seem to think it's "gross" and "not funny at all" (they clearly don't appreciate it and need to watch it again!)
  3. The song has been stuck in my head all day.
  4. By linking to it on LambAround, I will always know where to find it and will be able to watch it over and over, for years to come.

Bwah Ha Ha!

Wasn't that the best commercial you've ever seen? DORITOS! The creepy guy actually reminds me quite a bit of my brother. If my mom reads this, she'll probably insist I'm making fun of him, but I really think he'd agree. He's probably doing an impersonation of the Doritos guy right now!

Now, on with the nominations for the Best in Show Award! Here are this weekend's Top 10:

Be Colorful took a plain tea cart and turned it into something vibrant and special!

Moore Minutes took the standard Bunco party fare and elevated it to fun new heights!

Sweet as Sugar Cookies shared a recipe with a name I couldn't resist - The BEST Bread I Have Ever Eaten.

ChildMade posted a tutorial for creating a heart brooch out of wire.

A Little Bit of Everything baked us this scrumptious cake.

Ms. Smartie Pants (clever!) invited us into her home to enjoy her Valentine's Day decor.

The Iowa Farmer's Wife created a coffee collar that I would love to show off at work.

The Bird's Papaya created her own decorative pillows (surely you recall that I'm partial to Dsquared, right?) There's a Diet Coke one on her blog too!

 In My Own Style let us in on a brilliant decorating idea involving trim. 

My Nerdy Nook decopaged her entire desk!

Congratulations, nominees! Here is a button to help you out:

Here is a different, less competitive (completely non-competitive, actually) button if the one above isn't quite your style:
I plan to have the poll available until approximately Sunday. Good luck!

Oh, and I'd love to know: What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial?

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!

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

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...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
