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

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! There is almost always a promo code available on the Amerisleep website, so if there's not a good deal today, check back tomorrow.
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…
