Halloween Costume Fun! Cutest Baby Skunk Ever?

Sexy Nerd takes it upon himself every year to dole out the Halloween candy. Interacting with trick-or-treaters and their hovering parents is a bit much for antisocial me, so this works out perfectly. It's also an ideal situation for the kids, because Sexy Nerd is a pushover and easily forgets all about my stingy "2 candies each" rule whenever a child with an adorable costume or sweet voice shows up at our door, scooping up enormous handfuls of candy instead.

Our first year in our home, one trick-or-treater was a little boy dressed as a skunk. He was only about 2 and had the Most.Adorable.Costume.Ever, along with an irresistible "Twick-or-Tweat Pwease". His mom was holding his bag of candy at the end of our driveway, so he held out his furry, mittened skunk hands. Sexy Nerd was no match for the cuteness and gladly forked over a massive handful of Tootsie Rolls, Caramels, and Gummy Candy Corn into his waiting paws. 

"Thank you," said the little skunk, trying to hold all of the candy. He dropped a piece and bent down to pick it up.

"Thank you," he said upon retrieving the candy, only to have another piece slip out of his grip.

Can you guess where this is going?

"Thank you," he said, picking up the piece while dropping two more.

Moral of the story? Stick to your wife's 2 candy rule, Sexy Nerd! It was pretty darn cute though, and Sexy Nerd brings up the Little Skunk story every Halloween. Because of this, it was easy to make my decision when asked to do a blog review for Wholesale Halloween Costumes, especially when I saw that they feature infant costumes.
Oh, the cute furriness of the Baby Velvet Skunk!

Of course, Sexy Nerd and I are planning to stay baby-free for at least another year or two, and we couldn't have a perfectly good costume sitting in the guest bedroom closet on Halloween.

Biscuit didn't mind the skunk feet.

In fact, she probably enjoyed making Pica jealous. She's mean like that.
Surprisingly, Biscuit seemed fine with wearing the skunk hat.
 Cuter than a baby?

Apparently, though, the skunk tail is SCARY!

 "It's gonna get me!"
Pica, who looks completely thrilled to dress up like a skunk, wishes you a Happy Halloween.

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...
