To Do...Hacked

Sexy Nerd started 2013 in his typical way. He cooked up potatoes and a few green chile burritos for breakfast this morning. It smelled delicious and it seemed like a nice way to begin the new year.

Then, he asked me if I wanted any.

It's just his way.

A bit later, (you know, after serving up my own breakfast) I turned on my computer and pulled up my To Do list. Here it was, as of last night:

  1. Pack for cruises
  2. Clean house
  3. Email cruise lines re: blog post
  4. Check into cruises. Can I register w NCL yet? Need to call?
  5. Download maps to Nexus
This morning, I was startled to see that my list had more than doubled in length. Perhaps I'd partied a little too hard on New Year's Eve? I didn't remember adding anything new.

Plus, Sexy Nerd and I are old souls, so you know we were both asleep by 9pm on New Year's Eve.

Here is my new '2013 To Do' list. See if you can guess who updated it.

  1. Get Freaky with SN :-)
  2. Pack for cruises
  3. Clean house
  4. Email cruise lines re: blog post
  5. Check into cruises. Can I register w NCL yet? Need to call?
  6. Download maps to Nexus
  7. Feed the Pica Butt...
  8. Kiss a frog
  9. Build a house
  10. Go to the beach
  11. Eat a cookie
  12. Bake banana bread
  13. Feed banana bread to SN
  14. Go to sleep
  15. Wake up
  16. Go to sleep again
  17. Guess what...time to wake up
By the way, I told Sexy Nerd that I would be posting his updates, but of course with the first "to do" removed. He said to leave it. Apparently, 2013 is going to be the year of TMI.

Happy New Year!

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:

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…
