Del Taco Ensaladas Review

Del Taco has a tasty new option, the Handcrafted Ensalada! Which, I guess is Del Taco talk for salad.

 There are 3 flavors to choose from: Taco Salad (TS), Chicken Bacon Avocado (CB), and Mexican Chopped Chicken (MC).

What could the PR on this sticker mean?

(Truth be told, I knew what the PR meant the other day, when I took this photo. At least, I think I knew it. I'm sure I knew it! What was it??)

Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad, including a side of tortilla chips. That was a nice surprise! There was supposed to be a side of Cilantro Pepita Ranch, but my Albuquerque Del Taco forgot to include it. You'd think I'd have learned to check my order after the Bacon Quesadilla debacle, but sadly no.

They didn't shy away from the cilantro-awesomeness, which is one of the reasons I love Del Taco. 

Of course, if cilantro tastes like soap to you (you poor, poor person) I'm sure they'll happily make you an Ensalada without it.


The Del Taco Ensalada was huge, so I added 2 tacos to my order (currently free when you enroll in their eClub - yay!) and considered dinner done.

1 crunchy chicken taco and 1 soft chicken taco. They do not skimp on the cheese at Del Taco.

You figured I'd give 1 taco to Sexy Nerd and keep the other for myself, didn't you?
Around here, we cut our tacos in half. Crunchy shells be darned!

If you're in the mood for a salad but worry you'll still be hungry afterward, the new Del Taco Ensaladas are a great option. They're a bit pricey, at about $5 each, but there are eClub coupons available to make it a better value. In addition to the free taco offer, there's currently a coupon for a free drink with your Ensalada purchase.

All blog posts should end with a close up of BACON, don't you think?

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

This post is NOT sponsored by Amerisleep. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my mattress for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.
*UPDATES*  A few months ago, Amerisleep started a new referral program. If you order through my link, you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! (THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!)
If you buy through my referral link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus from Amerisleep 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 planning to buy more of the exact same product again? Plus, I very much appreciated online Amerisleep mattress reviews when trying to decide on t…

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

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?


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…
