The Most Awkward Hour of My Life

You know when you get the giggles, and it's just impossible to stop yourself from laughing? That happened to me today. Nothing was even funny, but I had to laugh. I would burst if I didn't laugh. Sure, I tried to move my mind to a calm place. At one point during my pointless hysteria, I even said out loud "Alright, I'm going to be serious from here on".That lasted about a minute.The trouble with trying not to laugh is that just thinking about not laughing makes the corners of my mouth turn up. Of course, getting the giggles isn't all that big a deal, right?
This happened while I was getting an hour-long full body massage.The super-sweet masseuse laughed right along with me, but I'm pretty sure hers was just the uncomfortable sound one makes when you're locked in a teensie room with a crazy person, five minutes into a looong session.

Blog Hop - Come Join the Party!

Here in Albuquerque, Sexy Nerd and I are all about brewing beer and frying potstickers today. Oh, and we *might* just buy a new house too.

New to us, at least.

I hope everyone is having a fun weekend!

Valentine's Day FAIL

I'm afraid that I'm the recipient of this year's FAIL award. Remember how Sexy Nerd scored so many points with his Valentine's Day surprise? I hadn't realized there was more to come.

Look what was waiting for me when I opened my car door!

Maybe GM could try this tactic to sell more Chevy Volts.
Awww! I love that crazy redneck of mine, Nascar addiction and all. (And Moonshiners.) (And Swamp Loggers.) (And Duck Dynasty, which I'll admit isn't terrible.)
I wanted to do something equally nice for Sexy Nerd, but I'd waited too long to plan anything. I pondered what he might like while driving across town to my orthodontist appointment, which was to recement a broken bracket.

By the way, it is easy peasy to get a last-minute orthodontist appointment on Valentine's Day. It's extra sucky though because you sit there getting your teeth tortured, thinking "so this is how I'm spending Valentine's Day".

Also, my orthodontist didn't buy my c…

Sexy Nerd, the Valentine's Day Ninja

This morning, I was startled awake by the sound of Pica and Biscuit barking. They bark at everyone, including us, but at just after 7am, I should have been home alone. Sexy Nerd would have been at work for almost an hour by then and our dogs normally sleep until I get up.

Panic? You betcha!

I bolted out of bed and double checked that the bedroom door was locked (because, you know, those little twisty doorknob locks would really slow someone down.)

I heard the garage door open, then close, and the dogs were silent.

For a moment, I wondered if maybe it had been Sexy Nerd. Could he have gone into work late because he was setting up some grand Valentine's Day surprise? Today is our 10th Valentine's Day together, after all. Based on previous Valentine's Days though (unromantic Valentine's Day here and here), it seemed unlikely.

I crept cautiously down the stairs. Pica and Biscuit were asleep. Nothing looked out of place. I couldn't see any romantic Valentine's Day s…

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 d…
