Egg Shortage?

Shortage, smortage. Sexy Nerd and I will be eating well during the looming eggpocalypse, thanks to our local Sprouts and their overzealous clearance stockers.

I spotted these from across the store, knocked everyone out of my way, and, of course, celebrated with a victorious happy dance.

Eggland's Best? These are higher quality eggs than I was buying before the egg shortage!
And the sell-by date isn't even for another week. Can you believe it?

Paid Guest Bloggers Needed

Staycations just aren't cutting it right now and I'm itchin' to get away to some far-off, tropical island.

Also, could the builder have placed our neighbor's windows any more obnoxiously close?

So Fresh, So Clean

Let's be honest. The best blog posts are the ones that border on TMI, wouldn't you agree? If you know me in real life, (I'm looking at you, family members) please discontinue reading this immediately.

(Seriously. If you have or have ever had the same last name as me, now is the time to scram!)
Today started out well. I woke up a little before my alarm went off and got an early start on my morning. I ate a healthy breakfast of oatmeal, yogurt, and fruit. I found just the right outfit to wear to work. I even had time to do some online (window) shopping before leaving the house.

It was going to be a great day!

Everything at my office seemed fine. I clocked in and started reviewing insurance claims. It didn't take long, however, to realize that something was not quite right. There was a funky smell.

And, yes, it was coming from me!

I'd had all that extra time before leaving the house. I had showered, washed my hair, brushed my teeth, done my make-up, and all those other…

Bad Real Estate Photos

After waiting 3 months from our latest floor plan change, we finally received our quote from the builder today. I asked if it was at least in the ballpark of our budget and he said "sort of". Oh, it's just ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS OVER BUDGET. Sexy Nerd is diligently reworking our design to lower the cost. Many drastic changes and many hours later, he has saved an entire $9,035.

While he scrimps and saves, I'm browsing real estate listings. My search hasn't been very reassuring, to say the least:

This is the most terrifying cozy mountain lodge I've ever seen.
What did they spill on this carpet??
It's so hard to choose the perfect flooring. Let's just get them all!
Apparently, this broken TV (computer monitor?) comes with the house.
Flamingos and tropical fish in the middle of the desert? Sure. I don't know if it quite fits the 1.3 million dollar asking price though.
This is on every listing photo...I guess so I won't …
