Shabby Apple Giveaway & How to Save a Screen Shot

With exactly 300 entries, this seemed like a decision best left to Random.org. Appreciate it, because I started out with absolutely no idea how to save the image of the winning number, as proven by my very own screen shot search bar:

 I've saved images for my blog before, but have trouble every time. The clever thing to do would be to write down exactly how I saved it this time. Problem - I have no idea how I saved it! Capturing the image is simple enough, but where do I find the file after that? I've read that I should paste the screen shot into Paint but, another problem, I accidentally deleted Paint from my computer (then reinstalled the computer back to the factory settings, then somehow removed Paint again, along with all my card games!) Eventually, the above screen shot appeared on my desktop.

Now, wasn't I writing this post for something other than to ramble on about screen shots? Oh yeah! The winner is PBJheart!! Congratulations to the lucky gal (or maybe guy?) Your email address has been forwarded to the nice folks at Shabby Apple, who will contact you for details on size and shipping. 

And thank you to everyone who entered! Keep up the stellar entry results and comments, and there are bound to be more opportunities to win LambAround giveaways in the future.

One more thing! Somehow, while finishing up this post, I managed to open Outlook, which reminded me of my 31 week overdue obligation, titled "hi". On the plus side, the key to saving a screen shot seems to be (1) Press fn, alt, and prt sc at the same time (2) open any photo in Microsoft Office Picture Manager (3) 'paste' and close the program, which should leave the image on the desktop.

I'm pretty certain Sexy Nerd has been messing with my computer.

I was very careful not to press Snooze.

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.

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.

Original post:

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!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
