Addicted to Realtor.com

Although it will probably be several years before we build a house on our 13 acres of mountain awesomeness, my eyes are always on the lookout for home ideas. This may have lead to me spending a few (only 6 or so) hours on Realtor.com yesterday. If you follow LambAround on Pinterest, you might have noticed a flood of home decor pins from me, many with the generic description "Find this home on realtor.com", as I was in too big of a hurry to pin the next photo to be bothered writing anything.

As the point of this browsing was to find inspiration for our future dream home, it would make a lot of sense to search within the price range we'll be building in.

The multimillion dollar homes just look so much better though!

Here are some of my favorite photos:

How can I duplicate this within our HOA's 2 story building limit? Also, how can I make this San Francisco home not look out of place in the mountains?

That's silly. It would look adorable in the mountains!

I don't do windows. Still, it's an appealing look.

 Yes, I actually found a home with its very own SPA room! Come to think of it, it's almost silly to build a dream home and not include a spa room, right? I can hear the soft music now.

 
Every morning, I'd come downstairs into this grand living room and feel like I'm off to the opera.

(These would be the pantry doors, of course.) 

Future Dream Kitchen Photo #4

The plan is to meld all 4 kitchen photos into one glorious dream kitchen.

Also, I expect our future dream home to always be immaculately clean, just like in these photos. Sure, we don't keep our current house very tidy, but I'm convinced that having such a nice San Francisco-inspired home will transform Sexy Nerd into some kind of magical cleaning man, sort of like the dad on Full House.

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

*Disclaimer*
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:

Not too shabby, right? To be fair, the "before" is extra bad because the Je…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
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?

Ultra-modern??

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…
