Las Vegas Dining Guide - Buffet of Buffets Pass

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm going to be sharing photos today that, frankly, I'd forgotten about posting. How did I forget to post almost all of our trip to Las Vegas? I posted that we went to Tucson and Vegas was right after that, but somehow I moved on without posting the end of our trip.

I suspect laziness was a main factor.

Let's begin with the highlight of our trip - the food! We booked a package through the Imperial Palace (a fine place to stay if you're thrifty, just don't step onto the carpet without your socks and don't forget to pack pajamas!) which included two Buffet of Buffets passes. That's right - 24 hours of nonstop Vegas buffets! My goal was to eat at all 7 that were included with the pass, but unfortunately, due mostly to line lengths and not having a rental car, we only managed to cram in 4. Clearly, we'll have to go back and try again!

My scrumptious sundae from the Bally's buffet. My friend Marie recently ate at the same buffet and didn't really care for it, but the extensive sundae bar made it one of my favorites. We actually hit this one up twice, once for dinner and another time for breakfast.

Really, how could anyone not like this? Those are caramelized bananas! *drool*

 Desserts from the Caesar's Palace buffet. Sadly, they only looked yummy. Of all the buffets we visited, the Lago buffet in Caesar's Palace is the one I wish we'd skipped. The food was mediocre and the service was appalling! We waited in line over an hour. Oh, they must just have been so popular and delicious that of course there was a wait, right? Wrong! We were shocked by all the empty tables when we entered and throughout the hour we were there. It seemed that whoever was in charge that day simply didn't feel like working very hard. Why else would you keep the restaurant only half full with an hour wait?

 When we were leaving, Sexy Nerd said I should take his photo by the sign, as a reminder of which buffet he was happy to be leaving. All those people? They're probably still waiting in line as I write this.

Next, we hit the Spice Market buffet, inside the Planet Hollywood casino. No line! No photos either. Sadly, I didn't think to take any until we were leaving. Eating at 3 buffets within 4 hours must do something kooky to your brain.

Wanting to get the most bang for our buck, (can you still say this when your passes are free with your hotel stay?) I insisted we swing by the Emperor's Buffet at Imperial Palace. I hadn't read great reviews of it, but the line was right (as in, no line whatsoever). Sexy Nerd didn't want to go. He said he was full and that he would just watch me eat. Fine by me. At our table, he said he was so stuffed that I was crazy to even think about eating any more and then he got up to find a drink.

He returned with this:

which, I might add, he finished.

Clearly, Sexy Nerd was delirious from everything he had eaten.

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:
