Stinky Nerd Quote of the Day

Remember that greenhouse Sexy Nerd and I built together? Yeah, I'm taking credit for it. Supervising is hard work! I also provided snacks, Subway sandwiches, and icy sodas, which anyone doing hard manual labor will tell you is a much-appreciated job. I tried to provide icy beer too, but Sexy Nerd said drinking and heavy lifting never go together. He's so moral, that crazy guy of mine.

Luckily for the icy beer, I was not doing any heavy lifting.

Sexy Nerd worked all day long, tirelessly moving each 80 pound bag of concrete from the bottom of our lot up the steep, uneven ground until all 6,800 pounds were accounted for. When the 85th bag finally reached the top, I ran up to him in celebration. He was sunburned and sweaty; his hair ashen with cement dust. He'd done it! I threw my arms around him.

Phew!

Sexy Nerd reeked. I knew he'd worked hard, but this was too much. Recoiling, I vowed we would not ride home in the same car.

Which leads me to the Sexy Stinky Nerd Quote of the Day:

"I didn't use deodorant today because I knew I'd just get all sweaty and gross anyway. I figured, what's the point, you know?"


WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO GET ALL SWEATY AND GROSS IS WHEN YOU NEED DEODORANT MOST OF ALL, SEXY NERD!

It's a good thing he's investing so much effort into the greenhouse. At this rate, he won't be allowed inside our beautiful new home. Half the windows don't even open. It simply won't work out, Sexy Nerd.

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. See below for details.

Original post from 2013:

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...
