Insomnia Makes Me Cheesy

I've slept about 6-8 hours total over the past 4 nights. I'm totally drained. How bad is it? Today at the dental office, I handed a mom her receipt, then quickly pulled it back and reprinted a new one. There was a wet line across her address. No, our ceiling is not leaking. Although I can't imagine doing this, I'm fairly certain I had drooled (DROOLED!) on her receipt while talking to her. Even worse, her teenage daughter witnessed it. Ugh, teenagers are so unforgiving of things like that.

You'd think public slobbering would be enough to snap my brain out of its self-induced zombieland, but no. Checking out the next family, I scheduled the 6 month check-ups on Wednesday, December 8th, only to realize later I'd made them for June 8th.

At least I'm catching these goofy errors. Geez, who knows how many corrections I'll find for this post after getting a decent nights sleep (tonight, I hope!). My coworkers hadn't quite grasped how impaired I was feeling until a bit later. We were out of change, so I wrote a check for the bank to get some petty cash. My boss's husband said:

If Tom Petty comes around, you're going to have to give him that money.

Cheesy, right? "That's dumb" is what Sexy Nerd said when I told him. Yeah, well it cracked me up! I smiled just typing that. Tom Perry Cash. It kills me.
Wanting a picture for this post, I Googled "free clip art, cheesy tom petty" and got this. Yes, it also made me laugh, partly because I feel like I can relate to this strange, moldy fromage creature, who looks to be over the brink of sleep exhaustion. I have no idea what 'insanity cheese boy kirby hat' means. I hope it isn't anything dirty.

I've set up a spare bed on the floor for tonight in case, once again, switching ends of the bed doesn't work. Goodnight everyone!

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!

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.

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?


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...

6/25/17 Update: The fireplace is stone, but it's ver…
