San Francisco Trip Photos

A week has passed and I'm still sick, now with bronchitis! Bah humbug and cough, cough, cough!

Also, we've been back from our travels for quite some time but there are still no photos from San Francisco here on LambAround. Let's fix that.

We flew into Oakland and took the BART into San Francisco. The station has a nifty view of the Raiders stadium.
(boo!)

 Sexy Nerd, looking absolutely thrilled to hold my bag while I take his photo.

Yes, the other husbands may laugh when they see him, but holding your wife's bag is a necessary part in the life of the modern man.

Eventually, Sexy Nerd accepted it. You can't argue with an awesome bag!

Before our vacation, I joined the Boudin email club and received a $3 off coupon, good at their Fisherman's Wharf location. Note to anyone thinking of using this handy travel tip: Learn from my mistake and print more than just 1 of these coupons. About a dozen, registered to multiple email addresses, would have been great.

We shared a Sourdough pizza.

Mmmmmm.

Us small town New Mexicans couldn't believe our eyes. A real life Occupy San Francisco shantytown! It's right across from where a group of teens smokes pot and stands around with their bikes. No matter when we passed this area, the teens were always there, always smoking and always lounging about.

A lot of San Francisco smells funny. The back entrance of Trader Joe's smelled especially funny.

Did you know there's a group that swims in the frigid San Francisco water by choice? Brrr!

 Other than this cold we both caught, we loved our vacation!

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...
