Camp Blogaway - Sleeping Arrangements (Part 2 of 2)

I promised you some hot, naked action in my last Camp Blogaway Sleeping Arrangements post (Click here if you missed part 1). Okay, maybe not quite as exciting as that. Geez, can you imagine the Google results LambAround is going to come up in after this? Oops, maybe I shouldn't write "come up". There are going to be some very disappointed perverts out there.

At camp, I found it difficult to fall asleep. Being cramped up inside a sleeping bag is not my style, especially when you throw in bunk beds that squeak if you so much as exhale too forcefully. Spiders, roommates, and bloggers drunk on wine, laughing it up outside the window, all decreased the likelihood of me getting any rest. Still, I tried. Traveling to LAX had made me pretty sleepy, as had the hours long drive to camp. Sleep was overtaking me. Then, a panicked thought. You see, (*TMI ALERT*) I don't do pajamas. Never have. They're great for lounging around the house, but for sleeping, I've never understood how anyone can stand to wear them. I hate pajamas! And, thus, my nightly fear at Camp Blogaway:

What if, while asleep, I take off my pajamas and throw them onto the girl in the bunk next to me?!

It was hot in our cabin. I'd planned for chilly weather and had packed, hahaha, a long-sleeved pajama top and long-legged pajama pants. "Thermals", as my mom calls them. There I was, bundled up in a thick, toasty sleeping bag, the heat zipped up all around me, while those damn pajamas twisted up every which way. Surely, subconsciously, I would peel those pajamas off the first chance I got. Still hot, I'd probably sprawl out on top of my sleeping bag, fast asleep and drooling.

Sexy Nerd's a lucky guy, right?

I don't have any pajama photos from camp for this post, but I found the next best thing. Behold, a pajama photo from when I was 16, taken in my (very!) purple bedroom using the camera timer. Oh, did I think I was hot stuff!

No one needs to be seeing that!

Camp Blogaway solution? Sleep is overrated! I played Scrabble on my phone inside the safe darkness of my sleeping bag all night and filled up on green tea the next days.

Pajamas suck! We anti-pajama bloggers have the opportunity to unite and put an end to all this jammy nonsense. It's time for a pajama boycott, baby! Who else is with me?

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...
