Baby Madness?

Sexy Nerd and I drove up to Colorado recently to visit his family. While there, we looked forward to/dreaded meeting our brand-new niece, Aria.

Confused?

Sexy Nerd and I have decided that our best strategy is to be on the "2 year plan" for having a baby. Technically, there are only 20 months left on our time line, but calling it anything shorter than 2 years freaks me out! There are just so many things to learn and prepare for before having a baby. I've already memorized Dr. Karp's 5 Techniques for calming babies and am currently reading Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child (surprisingly, this book also offers insight into my own lifetime of poor sleep.) Really, it doesn't do you any good to read some life changing piece of advice for 5 month olds when your baby is 6 months, right? By then, you've already screwed them up, leaving them destined for a life of drugs, crime, and never moving out of the house!

Sexy Nerd and I agree that the 2 year plan is definitely the way to go. Key word *agree*. Somehow, after reviewing my photos from the weekend, I'm less convinced that we're on the same page.

Could Sexy Nerd look any freaking happier?!






As for yours truly, I decided to ham it up as soon as the camera was on.

Babies are SCARY!

Problem? My completely serious, ham-free photos are even worse!

You can totally see the concern in her little eyes.

I don't remember making this face!!

Anyone else agree that a 3 year plan might be a better way to go?

*Update*
Now that I have a post about babies, BlogHer is running more baby-focused ads on my blog. I'm doomed!

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...
