A Flower Delivery MYSTERY

Sexy Nerd and I came home from a day of running errands on Saturday to discover an odd message on my phone. It was a girl from a flower shop calling to confirm my address for a delivery. I called and said there must be a mistake, as I wasn't expecting any flowers, to which she pointed out that people don't usually expect flowers. Oh, of course. As nice as it would be to have someone send me flowers, it seemed unlikely. Sure enough, she was unable to find any orders for me when I gave my name. She did have a Danielle though, and asked if there might be a different last name. I told her my maiden name. There really were flowers waiting for me! She confirmed the delivery address - the rental house Sexy Nerd and I lived in 3 years ago. I updated my address and ended the call, anxiously waiting to see who would send me flowers.

Strange? I had no idea how strange! Here is the message that came with the flowers:

So who would send me, a married woman who has been with my Sexy Nerd for over 6 years, a message like that? The delivery was anonymous! I called the florist back right away to get the sender's name.

They didn't know either! I asked if it was just a generic message that the sender had selected from a list and they said no, the sender had written it specifically. They said the order was placed online through FTD and to contact them. I did and they won't reveal the identity of the sender without his (or her!) permission. They called the number given for the order and no one answered. They emailed them and are currently waiting for a response.

All I could do was wait, right? Pfft! I called back again and spoke to someone else, feeding them a story about how I just had a baby and got lots and lots of flowers delivered and put all the little cards aside so I could write my thank you notes, but in all the chaos I misplaced the notes and could I please get the sender's name???

Nope. They called the sender again. No answer. 

Sexy Nerd, who absolutely did not send these and who is not happy about any of this, is convinced that the flowers were sent to me by mistake. He was even less happy when the 2nd FTD representative told me it was a "New Dream Bouquet with Bear". There was supposed to be a bear too?! Not that any of this matters, of course. Prince William could have sent these to me and I still wouldn't think for a second of leaving my Sexy Nerd. But still...I have it narrowed down to 3 possibilities...maybe 4 if I really stretch my options...I really want to know who sent them! The suspense is killing me!

Does anyone out there know how to get those stubborn punks at FTD to reveal the name of the sender?


  1. That is just plain CRAZY talk! The suspense would seriously be killing me dead, dead, DEAD! On the upside, they are rather beautiful.

  2. They're beautiful! I'm sure they're from an old flame. Make sure it keeps Sexy Nerd on his toes! LOL!

  3. No, But I hope you do and let us know.


  4. Okay, that is just really weird. Whoever it is is clearly chicken shit. Why be so bold to send flowers to a married woman if you don't have the balls to say who you are? They are pretty though. I would be going crazy too...keep us updated!

  5. I am a bit ticked off at whoever is behind this for not telling me who they are. What if they never do?? What if it's some crazy (albeit confused) stalker?!?

  6. they're pretty!

    also. i sent them. and i'll do it again!

  7. FTD, protecting stalkers,...nice.

  8. Lol, W! I hadn't considered that though. What if there's more coming? Oh my!

  9. Ok, exciting things like this just don't happen to me. I hope we get a follow up story...

  10. oh, cool, for you....not sexy nerd, hmmm maybe it is payback for all the times he fixes dinner and forgets to tell you it is time to eat! HA! Can't wait for you to find out.

  11. Oh my God!!! How crazy... but awesome too! Somebody loooooves you!

    It would be driving fucking NUTS trying to figure out who sent that shit!!!!

    Love the blog lady... I must follow!

  12. WOW! That is crazy. I wish I had a flower sending stalker.

  13. Those are beautiful. Have you thought to ask Sexy Nerd's buddies, make sure it's not a joke by someone on him?

    I used to deliver flowers and we were never allowed to give out the name of the sender if they did not sign it. Nor were we allowed to send them back if the person did not want them.

    Just enjoy it. flowers only last a few days.

  14. OMG - are you serious!!! I think sexy nerd is going to be guessing for quite some while!! Mr. X (my sexy nerd, I guess) would not be happy!! But hey, they're lovely flowers and that will show sexy nerd!!!


    PS. thanks for stopping by my place, I love your pretty bows and all...

  15. Sorta equal parts eek and ick.

  16. thanks for stoppin' by for a Latte'. I grill lamb too (hope thats ok with you) Your blog is cute and I am happy to be your newest follower.

  17. Wow that is just crazy. I hope you figure it out soon.

  18. Yes - this IS mysterious! It would drive me crazy! No sleeping till you figure it out please. We need you to solve this case!

  19. Wow! I would be very curious as well.

    Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day to say hello. Have a great week!

  20. I'd be going nuts!! maybe you could pretend to be an attorney requesting documents. lol!

    thanks for stopping by my blog today!
    i'm your newest follower!

  21. Oh, I don't know, kidnap their children and hold them hostage until they tell you? :)

  22. Okay, little missie! You are always veeeery entertaining on your blog! Are you just stirring up some good ol' homemade curiosity in those of us who have not rec'd flowers via delivery boy in too many years to count? Huh? Weelll, it's a-workin...I wanna know whodunnit!!!!!!!!!

  23. First of all, I have to apologize to your site meter if you use one. I'm new to blogging so I have been on and off your page for like that past half hour trying to figure out how to leave a comment (my cookie setting was wrong - oops).

    Anyway, the gist of my original comment was a) pretty flowers!, b) sorta creepy!, and c) did anyone you were dating at the time send you flowers at that address? If so, maybe they signed into their FTD account and selected the wrong recipient (you'd been in their as a past recipient, I'm guessing).

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  24. oooh, the suspense in killing me. It's kinda flattering but creepy maybe? Do tell when you find the sender. by the way, THANKS for visiting me on my sits day and making me feel special!

  25. oooooh, interesting. I need to hear a follow up to this. I may obsess over thinking who could have sent flowers? lol!

    By the way, stop by my blog, I've left you something there!

  26. Hmmmm. What if you told them you think the sender may have passed away, and it's the very last thing you would have left of them, if only you knew who it was from?

    Dramatic? Yes. But it just may work...

  27. Whaaaat! That is just bat s*** crazy. If I worked for FTD, I would totally crack the case for ya.

    P.S. Can't wait to see pics of the pups licking cookie batter off the mixer!

  28. Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it unless more flowers or things arrive. :) Maybe somebody thinks they're in a romantic comedy? Ha ha ha
    Thanks for stopping by today! :)

  29. Ooooh, that is infuriating. I HATE not knowing things like that! I can't wait to see who it is too! An old boyfriend? A case of mistaken identity? Ah the suspense!

  30. This is crazy! What a story! Is there someone else with your name in your area? I love your blog too by-the-way. Thanks for following me!

  31. They are beautiful flowers...I usually love flowers...but that is just a little weird. However it makes for good blog fodder so there is a plus side!

  32. Oooooooooh, so scandalous!! I likey. ;)

  33. Those are beautiful flowers, but a strange card since you are married. Maybe they are from a long, lost boyfriend from high school or maybe someone has a crush on you. (Do people still have crushes anymore?)

    Stopping by from SITS!

  34. well how weird---but pretty. And at least you did not get a dead varmint in a box - that is what would happen to me.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  35. Lovely flowers! Wish someone also send me like that. Anyway, I've been looking for topics as interesting as this. Looking forward to your next post.


  36. Coming over to visit since you visited me! I can't believe someone sent your flowers & you don't know! Alpha Hubby would positively hit the roof the the flowers would be in the trash (I would put them there, not him). They sure are beautiful, tho!! How funny.

  37. THey are beautiful! Very mysterious though
    Happy SITS day!

  38. That is so bizarre! Hope it was just a one time deal, and not a mystery that will have to result in a restraining-order. Hmmmm.....

  39. That is crazy, but sort of fun at the same time. And the flowers are beautiful. I hope you enjoyed them.

  40. Hope you got some enjoyment out of the flowers at least... did you ever solve the mystery now that we're 3 months in? It's strange that the person sending the flowers didn't have your new addy though...

    nice flowers though ;)

  41. Oh wow...This is a mystery indeed! Please do let us know if you are able to find out the sender's identity!

    Btw, hopping over from Thirsty for Comments :)

    ~ Jenny ( )

  42. oooohhhhh that is soooo mysterious!!!! it would kill me not to know who sent them!

  43. Wow, crazy, but oh so exciting and mysterious! I hope you get your answers. The suspense would kill me.

    I'm just popping in from the Thursday hop &I'm now a following your hilarious blog. Stop by when you get a chance!

    living well, spending less

  44. Oh my word, that is wild!!! I'd be going crazy wanting to know too!

Jessner Peel Photos: Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

The Beauty Blogger's "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - Updated 12/5/18
Since posting my Jessner peel photos, detailing the stages of the process, and 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, which I apply before the Jessner. (Side note: There's currently a 1-star review for the at-home peel that complains "I had to deal with days upon days of gross peeling and flakey chunks of skin falling off my face (and I have super oily skin). If I happened to laugh really hard on a particular day or…

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. See below for details.

*Another Update*
We've finished construction and are finally living in our mountain dream home and it's even better than I'd hoped! Here is a sneak-peak of our new kitchen and living room. Click the "Decorating" button above for more photos.

Believe it or not, our budget was meager. Really! My husband built the coffee table from an olive trunk and did the thin brick backsplash himself. Eventually, he's going to take the brick all the way to the top of the ceiling. He also created the three-tier chandeliers (three chandeliers total - yeah, he's pretty great!). 
I was responsible for all of the shopping and decorating decisions and design details and layout. We had the tongue-and-groove installed upside down (rough-side down) with Sherwin Williams H…

Instant Pot Explosion

While you're here, please be sure to check out my Instant Pot recipes: Creamy Enchilada Rice and Cranberry Oatmeal with Quinoa
We love our Instant Pot, the digital pressure cooker that seems to suddenly be in every home. You can't mess up - just throw in random ingredients and you'll get something yummy every time. It's foolproof. At least, that's how I used to feel about our Instant Pot, until the explosion...

Ack! We just moved in and look what I've already done to my brand new, all-white kitchen!
I tried to re-seal the vent but the pressure was too high to cooperate. I'm honestly not sure what went wrong with this batch of oatmeal. I've made it a million times. The Instant Pot was only about halfway full.

Here is the link to my extra-healthy Super Oatmeal Instant Pot recipe, in case you are curious or a fan of the delicious. It probably won't explode when you make it.
Oatmeal? More like a batch of tasty homemade glue.

A Nightmare Jessner Peel Side Effect

Almost as popular as my Amerisleep mattress reviews, the Jessner chemical peel post here on my blog has been a reader favorite for years. I'm still doing my own peels at home and still recommend this to anyone concerned about acne scars or wrinkles. However, last night I did have a Jessner peel scare.

As written before, timing is everything with a chemical peel. You don't want pieces of dead skin (yuck, right?) flaking off at work or at important social events. I've wanted to do one for months but things kept getting in the way, like extra days spent at work and our recent trip to California. Finally, last night I was able to treat myself to an at-home Jessner peel. (Using this product from Amazon, in case you want to try it for yourself.) I've done this so many times that the steps are automatic. I applied three layers of Jessner solution, brushed my teeth, and went to bed. Snuggled into our new mattress and a mountain of blankets, I fell into a deep sleep. I dreamed…

Family Size Bed (Because a King Mattress is Too Small)

Look! Up In The Sky! It's a Bird. It's a Plane. It's...

(cue suspenseful music)

What's bigger than a king-size Amerisleep mattress? An Amerisleep Superbed!

As you know, my nerdy engineer husband, SN, and I recently ordered two new twin XL mattresses from Amerisleep. The AS4 bed didn't work out for us (too soft and mushy for our taste) but we loved the extra-firm AS2 bed. It's perfect for people who sleep on their back (SN) and on their stomach (me). SN liked it even better than the AS3 bed we'd slept on since 2012 and I thought it was at least equal to that mattress, which is now making our relatives happy in the guest bedroom. The AS2 costs a little less than the AS3 and a lot less than the AS4. Who would have thought the less expensive option would be the better choice, right? Money really doesn't buy happiness.
(Okay, in all honesty, I think I prefer the AS3 just a hair over the AS2. Your first choice is usually the right choice.)

We loved our …

Flooring Ideas

Ever since we purchased our 13.1 acre (gotta get credit for that extra 0.1 acre!) lot outside of Albuquerque last year, Sexy Nerd and I have devoted most of our free time to planning our mountain dream home.

We cannot make a decision about anything. At this point, it seems our best option would be to build a row of townhomes, each in a completely different style. On Monday, we would live in our colorful Victorian home, and later in the week we could switch things up in our ultra-contemporary, all concrete house.

Since I can't imagine our neighborhood HOA (or our budget) ever allowing such a thing, we really do need to narrow down our list of ideas.

Flooring is a tough choice. In our current home, we have premium laminate flooring. It stands up well against our rambunctious dogs, but is easily damaged if you unknowingly drip water onto it and let it sit, like by the dog's water bowl and the dishwasher. We also have real wood flooring on our stairs and our bedroom sitting area,…

5 Ways to Make Your Flu Recovery Faster and Easier

I have the flu, so this is going to be a short post. Never mind that I often skip blogging altogether when I am healthy. (Update: This turned out to be a pretty decent post. Yay sick me!)

I should be at work today and not at home witnessing how stupid our dogs are. Pica just yawned and the sound caused Biscuit to bark, which made Pica bark. Now they are both barking hysterically at the glass front door. (Yes, glass front door. It is super obvious that there is no one there.) (Update: UPS just dropped off 2 packages and neither dog had any idea.)

1. Water tastes gross.

You know you're supposed to stay hydrated when you have the flu. Staying hydrated is never a problem for me. I love water...except that when you have the flu, water tastes gross. Like, you can taste the sickness. The universe has a cruel sense of humor sometimes. If you're caring for someone with the flu (hint, hint, SN), bring them hot tea with honey, juice, a smoothie, water with those fizzy Emergen-C packets, so…

A Healthier New Year for Sexy Nerd

Sexy Nerd recently started a new program through work that requires a lot of traveling. He gets sick of all the time wasted at airports, but loves the many meals his company pays for. Fresh seafood in San Francisco. Prime rib in Seattle. Burnt ends in Kansas City. He's been living it up!

After his most recent, week-long trip away from home, I decided to play the role of pesky wife and insisted that he step on the scale.

Surely you knew there'd be consequences for eating out for every meal, didn't you, Sexy Nerd?
The men in Sexy Nerd's family have a history of heart attacks at a young age, so a couple extra pounds is nothing to play around with. I planned to get him back on track by cooking healthy meals when he was home. I was all set to make a scrumptious breakfast of oatmeal with chia seeds (really, it's delicious!) when Sexy Nerd walked in with a bag of groceries. In our almost 7 years as a couple, this was maybe the 2nd time he has ever done any grocery shoppi…
