Del Taco Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito

It's time for another giveaway! I have a $20 Del Taco gift card with your name on it.

(Or possibly someone else's name. That is how giveaways work, you know.)

I recently tried the new Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito from Del Taco. Isn't it pretty?

Oooh, pretty.

As a $1 value menu kinda gal, I thought the price was a bit steep at first and almost didn't order it. Sure, it includes 6 actual slices of Hass avocado (so...an entire avocado?!) but $5 for fast food goes against every cheap frugal bone in my body (and they're all pretty cheap frugal). I was especially tempted to skip the burrito once I realized Del Taco lets you add avocado to any item for only 30 cents.

Well, guess what?

It was worth the cost.

It turns out that the Del Taco Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito is HUGE!

Do you see how the enormous burrito dwarfs the soda? And that was a massive soda!

I tried to eat the entire thing (so delicious!) but it was more burrito than humanly possible. I saved half of it for lunch the next day. Here it is, in what is surely the most boring photo on all the internet:

It still looks humongous.

Also, does my office have the cleanest break-room fridge you've ever seen?

Another 'also', as now I'm on a roll, is that I highly recommend putting half your Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito in the fridge, even if you are somehow able to eat the whole giant thing all at once. I didn't reheat it and it turns out that it tastes even better cold.

Hmmm...then perhaps the recommendation should be to put the entire burrito in the fridge...

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

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...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
