No More Sexy Nerds Jumping On The Bed...

...Because One Fell Down And Bumped His Head.

Have you heard of Amerisleep? Sexy Nerd and I finally replaced our crummy (and lumpy! and saggy!) old (but not old enough that it should need replacing) rip-off Simmons (BLECH!!!) mattress and are loving our new Amerisleep memory foam mattress.

Yeah, we have a little bitterness toward Simmons. Can you tell?

We were hesitant about ordering a mattress online without being able to test it, but were reassured by all the Amerisleep reviews I read boasting their quality products and top-notch customer service. I spent a lot of time emailing back and forth with Amerisleep representatives and they never seemed to mind my many (many!) questions. I loved how enthusiastic they were about their mattresses. When I researched Simmons online, all I saw were complaints from other people who had been scammed (why, oh why, didn't I do my research before making my purchase?) but my Amerisleep Googling revealed dozens of happy customers.

"I look forward to hearing how much you love your new bed!!" is the personal email I received after placing my order. A great sign.

The following week, our Liberty Bed mattress arrived...

The box was bigger than Sexy Nerd! I do recommend this mattress. I also recommend that you have a second person to help you move it to the bedroom, especially when that means hauling it upstairs, like us.

Sexy Nerd claimed he could have moved the mattress on his own. He "just didn't want to". Yeah.

Pica was hunting the mysterious black bag in our bedroom.
It seemed wise to stop her from attacking it.

Biscuit wouldn't even enter the room.


Sexy Nerd was very careful when cutting the plastic off of our new mattress. He had to be, with yours truly jumping around and saying "Careful! Don't cut the mattress! Are you being careful? Oooooh, be careful!"

The mattress began expanding even faster than we'd expected. Plan to cut that black plastic away quickly.

Amerisleep mattresses must be freed!

It expanded this much in about a minute. Cool, right?

The mattress kept growing and growing!

There was still more plastic to remove before our new mattress was ready.
(And more expanding!)

At first, we were surprised by the amount of plastic. Really though, if it weren't for all that plastic, might a rogue mattress start expanding on the shipping truck?

FedEx and UPS would not be happy.


No more waking up with back pain for this Sexy Nerd.

What did Pica, who was sooo excited about our new mattress, think of it? Don't know.
She isn't allowed on the bed.

Amerisleep claims their mattresses are equal to Tempur-Pedic, but for a lot less money. We have been sleeping on our new Liberty Bed for several weeks now and I agree. As far as we can tell, there's no difference between this and the Tempur-Pedics we tested in-store. Anyone can say their mattress is as good as Tempur-Pedic though. There seemed like there must be a way to prove this.

You know those fancy commercials where the person jumps on the Tempur-Pedic mattress and the wine glass doesn't tip over?

Sexy Nerd, BTW, enjoyed this very much!

If you've been wanting a new mattress of your own and have any questions, I'm happy to help.


We've now owned our Liberty Bed mattress for more than 3 years and are completely happy with it. Sexy Nerd says it's perfect in every way. It hasn't had any problems with sagging (unlike our piece of garbage Simmons Beautyrest, which this had to replace) and it doesn't get too hot, which I've heard is a common problem with memory foam mattresses. My favorite thing about it is there is absolutely no transfer of motion, meaning I can continue sleeping when Sexy Nerd gets up for work at 5am (and he can sleep through the tossing and turning of my idiopathic insomnia). We're getting ready to break ground on our custom dream home and are planning to purchase Amerisleep mattresses exclusively for the bedrooms.

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.

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…
