Kids are Repulsive. Repulsive!

BLECH!!!

I did something stupid at work on Friday. Someone forgot their sippy cup of milk in our waiting room and I put in on our lost & found shelf, thinking I would throw it out if no one came for it by that afternoon. Then, I forgot all about it.

It was a hot weekend and we leave our air conditioning turned off when the office is closed. I knew the sippy cup of milk was going to smell sour. But it was so much worse than I'd ever imagined!

The cup LEAKED ALL OVER OUR LOST & FOUND SHELF! Instead of just a cup of sour milk, I entered our office today to find this horrible, milk-jelly stuck to everything. And, of course, when I picked up the funky sippy cup, it quickly spilled onto my dress and our recently-cleaned carpet. As for all the forgotten toys, clothing, and electronics in our lost & found? All plastered onto the shelf in a layer of creamy goop! I had to scrape everything off with a spatula from the break room.

The smell. Oh, the sweet and sour smell of death. Everyone always warns about the many gross things you'll come into contact with when you have a baby. They say you'll be barfed on and peed on, etc., etc. But I never hear anyone mention old milk. If that's a smell that accompanies you into your home and car when you have a baby, count me out! It has been hours and the stench is still clinging to me, despite opening the windows and taking everything outside to the dumpster.

 This photo is from a previous LambAround post, where I actually thought a baby might be in our plan somewhere down the line.

Forget it!

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:

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…
