Not "Baaad" Indeed

In just a few more hours, it will be time to link up your favorite blog posts with LambAround! But first, as promised on my SITS day, I have a spiffy bunch of Best in Show Award nominees.

And, BTW, it killed me to choose just 10 posts out of the 122 that were linked.

Cue the fancy *Duh Nuh Na Nuh* music!

 The Sasse Life has adorable photos to demonstrate their adorable bibs.
(Also, this cutie does nothing to help my Baby Madness!)

Newlyweds & The Old House shared a beautiful kitchen transformation.

Walnut Acre has a terrific post teaching how to make your own bean bag chairs, which are stuffed with plastic bags.

The Llama Momma Blog cooked up some scrumptious Sweet Potato & Peanut Soup. I haven't tried it yet, but I was won over by this colorful drawing that accompanied the recipe.

All About (my) Boys taught me all about lembas, which I had never heard of before. It turns out that they are the perfect treat for your next Amtgard gathring! Who knew?

CraftWhack had some great fun at her dogs' expense. I'm convinced this pup will sleep through anything.

The REAL Housewives of Riverton have an easy to follow tutorial for creating light switch covers that match any decor.

Little Green Bow made a couch. Yes, you read that right. A couch! I can't even make a throw pillow for my (store bough, obviously) couch.

Creative Chaos (which has the best blog header ever. Really, go check it out for yourself!) made this unique and stylish belt.

Project Possessed has a handy guide to making your own glass paperweights.

Awesome job, nominees! Wondering what happens now? Oh, only the most fun part of all! It's time for that battle to the death that I was telling you about. If you take a peek at my right sidebar, you'll see a nifty little poll. Voting will take place through the end of the week (give or take a day - gotta keep you on your toes!) and the blog with the highest number of votes will be awarded the highly coveted and customized Best in Show Award, along with a feature post here on LambAround.

To help you on your quest for votes, I have created some snazzy buttons for you to choose from:

Decisions, decisions. Once you start designing blog buttons, it can be hard to stop!

Good luck, everyone!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

This post is NOT sponsored by Amerisleep. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my mattress for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.
*UPDATES*  A few months ago, Amerisleep started a new referral program. If you order through my link, you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! (THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!)
If you buy through my referral link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus from Amerisleep 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 planning to buy more of the exact same product again? Plus, I very much appreciated online Amerisleep mattress reviews when trying to decide on t…

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:
Chemical Peel Before & After
Also known as "EEEK!" and "Oooh, Ahhh"
Not too shabby, right? To be fair, the "before" is extra bad because the Je…

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...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
