BLOG HOP and Best in Show Winner

Before we get to linking up and revealing the results of the very close and exciting race for the Best in Show award, I have a little announcement. LambAround is up to 899 FOLLOWERS! Okay, who here isn't following LambAround yet? 900 sounds like such an amazing number...though I will, of course, begin hounding everyone to reach 1,000 immediately after. The joys of blogging!

So, wondering who won? There were so many impressive bloggers to choose from last week. Inspiration & Realisation and Teddy Bear Princess were neck and neck most of the time, with one taking the lead only to be outdone again, and so forth. The blogger who ultimately won, a mere 3 votes ahead of the competition on Saturday night, is the one who posted this:

A detailed, easy-to-follow tutorial on making your own Sailor's Belt

Bows Everywhere! Isn't this such a fun DIY shirt?

Congratulations, Donatella at inspiration&realisation! I have created an award for you.

Now, let's link up! If you've never participated before, you can read the blog hop rules here. Play nice and be sure to visit at least TWO of your fellow Not "Baaad" party goers. Tell them LambAround sent you (pretty please?) There are always a lot of fun posts to read!

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone! After participating in the Linky below, why not enter my Mushroom Kit Giveaway?

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! 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

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...
