Because some days, random is the best you can hope for.

Sexy Nerd is watching Swamp Loggers. Half the words are bleeped out and you can't understand the other half. At least Shelby's dog, Willy, is pretty cute.
Part of my job involves answering the phone for a law firm. I could not get a caller off the phone yesterday. I kept telling him that I just answer the phone and am not even in the same office as the law firm - strictly an answering service with no legal experience whatsoever - but he kept insisting that I give him legal advice! Want my advice? Leave your number and wait to get legal conseling from an actual lawyer!
Our Memorial Day trip has come and gone. Next up? Australia! I'm researching airfare in between posting this weekend's linky party. The prices....OUCH! I'm awfully tempted to scrap the whole Australia thing and just take another fun road trip instead. For the price of this vacation, we could even upgrade to a nicer road trip car! I've been dreaming of a Prius with a touchscreen navigation system and that fancy solar powered air conditioner.

Is it beyond cheap of me to actually consider Jetstar Air, which doesn't even give you free water, all the way to Australia?? I'm thinking I just might get thirsty after 20 or so hours.

Continuing on with this ramble (because I can't bear to look at those outrageous airfares any more), Sexy Nerd and I finally got around to seeing The Lorax. Preceding that was lunch at Sweet Tomatoes and a bike ride. Afterward were several (dozen) games of Words with Friends and Word Scramble.

All posts must have a photo, so here 'ya go.

I have been fighting the urge to take a nap. It is waaay too early for that. Still...

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

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:

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…
