Not "Baaad" Blog Hop and Best in Show Winner

Congratulations to the fabulous blogger who charmed the socks off of LambAround readers to claim the most votes for the Best in Show award!
Way to go, Mika's Pantry! I made your Chinese Spaghetti with Spicy Meat Sauce for dinner the other night and it was scrumptious. I hope everyone will visit your blog, where they'll find yummy recipes like:

Roast Beef and Gravy, which is made in the Crock Pot and contains very bad ingredients (that make this completely good!)

Rainbow Sugar Cookies - how gorgeous are these?!

Now, get ready to link up with another Not "Baaad" (get it?) Sunday Linky Party! I know what you're thinking. There are already a zillion blog hops out there, Lamb! What makes yours so special? I'll tell you what makes mine special. 3 things!

1. This Linky is open to all posts that you are proud of. Did you recently post about a great decorating project, craft, or recipe? That's wonderful if you did, but just fine if you didn't.

2. Do you ever find yourself trying not to duplicate posts on blog hops but aren't quite sure what you posted the previous weeks? Problem solved! The Linky from today will return one day, making it easy to see what you've already posted (and giving you a 2nd chance to visit any great posts you may have missed!)

3. I'll be announcing the nominees for the Best in Show Award in a few days. That's right. In addition to linking up your best posts, you're competing with your fellow bloggers in a battle to the death*!

*Battle may not actually be to the death, depending on who participates.

Doesn't this sound like fun? Of course, I do ask that you link directly to your post and include a photo from that post, not just your blog logo. And it would be super if you could post my Not "Baaad" Sundays button or at least a link with your post!
Isn't it pretty?

Oooh, I almost forgot the most important thing of all. DON'T BE A PARTY POOPER! Please get out there and mingle with at least 2 other linked bloggers! Let them know that you found them through LambAround (please, please, PLEASE!) Yes, I will know if you skip this and, yes, I will most certainly hold a grudge against you!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

*Disclaimer*
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

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. 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?

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!
