Amerisleep AS3 Reviews

  My Amerisleep AS3 Unboxing Video (Surprise, my voice is ridiculous!) If I can (just barely) do it, you can totally tackle a bed-in-a-box by yourself. Updated 10/15/22 Amerisleep's AS5 was recently featured as the 'Best Soft Mattress in a Box' by Good Housekeeping , with the panel of reviewers noting: Pressure relief for side sleepers Taller than other boxed mattresses Good customer service    Amerisleep Mattress Reviews  We've been happy Amerisleep customers since purchasing our first AS3 mattress more than 9 years ago. Now we also have an AS2 and an AS4 (the AS3 is still our favorite). Born with chronic insomnia  (even as a baby - my family insists I was a nightmare), the struggle to improve my sleep is my life. My husband, the overly-analytical mechanical engineer, was initially skeptical of a mail-order mattress, but he was quickly won over. 2012: Wine glass test, sans wine. I was fairly confident our brand-new mattress would pass with f

I Spent Over 6 Hours Working On This Post!

I'm so excited to see you! Today is my SITS Day and I was hoping you would be able to stop by. You do know what it means to have my SITS Day, don't you?
Paaaaar-tay Time!

Welcome to my LambAround party! Let me start out by introducing myself. I’m Lamb, a newlywed who has been known to place shirts into the washing machine one color and have them come out another. My hubby, Sexy Nerd, never, ever asks me to do his laundry. My blog provides an often humorous peek into my life, with focus on my cooking and decorating attempts. If you'd like to know more, please click here. If you enjoy stories about weddings gone wrong, I promise you won't be disappointed. Our male wedding officiant, Captain Howie, showed up late, wearing a skirt, and tried to make me climb a tree branch over a fishpond while in my wedding gown!

Oh, and there was a bit more to the stuffed animal in the washing machine story than the SITS site told you. Yes, I was worried about my lamb being washed. Guess what? It came out missing an ear! This is one of those "told 'ya so" stories to hold over my mom for life.

But enough about me. Can I offer you some munchies?

 Cornbread muffin, anyone? They're filled with hot dogs and spinach and they taste much better than they sound (promise!)

I was just showing the other SITS ladies some photos from our last cruise. We've cruised Hawaii, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean. We've seen some beautiful places, but of all my cruise photos, this one is my favorite. We returned to our room to find a cute towel-animal dog. Unfortunately, the room steward had forgotten to refill our fruit bowl. We wanted to get his attention in a way that would ensure he did not forget again.

On vacation, you need to make an extra effort to eat healthy!
Speaking of fruit, here's Kitchen Pig to offer you a drink.

 He's not just any party animal. He's a party pig.

You'd love a tour of my home? Well certainly, my dear! Here are some Before and Afters. Sexy Nerd and I are remodelholics.

Well, technically I just supervise, but when you think about it, isn't that the most important part?

Guest Bathroom (complete with a magical mirror washing machine)

What fun is a Master Bedroom without a fireplace?

What say we just pretend that pesky little cord isn't there. 

Built-In Bookcase, sans the books

Kitchen with 2 islands

Here's that second island. Sexy Nerd says that now we have an archipelago.

Our Living Room. Much cozier now!

More of the Living Room. Sexy Nerd added the closet and the accent wall.

Our pride and joy (and finally almost finished!) - our Master Bathroom

 Master Bathroom Shower. No glass-scraping for us anymore!

We'd better skip the backyard. There's an unexplained fungus on the loose.

Our poor cherry tree never saw this coming!

It's so important to me to show you SITS gals a fun time today. I know, we'll have a contest!

How does a CSN Gift Certificate sound? You could use it to buy a flowering tea set (and, you know, invite your good pal Lamb over for tea).

Heck, you SITS bloggers are so fun. We may as well have two contests!

Fingers crossed that you win this assortment of spices!

Now, gather 'round everyone. The best part of any good party is the gossip. Did I ever tell you about the funny time that Sexy Nerd was was feeling a little bit "lovey"? He had candles lit and wine and suggested that I put on a sexy outfit. I changed into something skimpy, somewhat covered by an equally skimpy, see-through robe. Being Mr. Smooth Talker, he came up to me and said in his sexiest voice, "Oooh, you're wearing layers. I'll have to take them off. You're like an onion."

Oh yes, the stinkiest of all the foods. I'm a lucky girl!

Before I forget, I stayed up all night (literally) making a present for you. I hope you'll be able to use it.

Isn't it beautiful? I put even more effort into making the present than wrapping it. Click Here to see what I made for you!

I wonder whether I'll receive a hostess gift from any of the SITS girls today. I have these flowers, but Sexy Nerd wasn't very happy about me keeping them. I received them under very mysterious circumstances!

I never did find out who sent them. Sexy Nerd insisted there'd been a mix-up and that the florist must have redelivered an order he'd sent me back when we lived in our rental house. One problem though. The last time Sexy Nerd sent me flowers was looooong before our rental house days! OOPS.

At least I saved whoever it was some money by having the bear refunded.

Well, I've had a great time chatting with you today. I have to go, but before I do, let me introduce you to some of my other guests. I'm sure you're dying to mingle!

Chemical Peel Before & After

This article has been updated! My new chemical peel post, which includes pricing, Jessner peel before and after photos, product recommendations, and a helpful timeline for scheduling your treatments, is at the bottom. My original Jessner peel post (one of the most popular on my site of all time) is at the beginning. Original Chemical Peel Article 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 when we were in Iceland , but my computer led me a different direction. I decided to do this on a whim after Groupon 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 w

Yeah, I'm one of them. Oh, except I actually do have so much to do and absolutely should not be scrolling through memes. Just try and stop me.

Hello Fresh Complaints

Hello, my bloggy friends. I have a HelloFresh complaint and believe they are pulling a scam. Yours truly came *this close* to falling for it.  Maybe scam is too harsh of a word. Sneaky? You can decide for yourself. The fact that there are so many Hello Fresh complaints online does seem suspicious. Update:  Google is totally filling my site with Hello Fresh ads now, ugh. Also, since posting this  Hello Fresh complaints  article yesterday, I've already received this message from a reader: "I did order from Hello Fresh previously and was not charged what I was originally told (or thought I was told). Also, the food from them was anything but fresh and they refused to do a refund, only doing credit - even for the overcharges! So basically I ended up being out of money thanks to them." My main complaint about Hello Fresh has to do with their promotional rate, which seems like it is set up to be intentionally misleading (more on this below). Despite so many people complainin

Christmas Memes and More

My Instant Pot Explosion!

Like many new Instant Pot owners, I've wondered, How many Instant Pots have exploded?  (Eeek!) I'm happy to report that my research on Snopes and other sites has shown that these do not explode, at least not when used properly. There is a lawsuit between a woman in Texas and the Instant Pot manufacturer, but she admits she had thrown a towel over the steam vent. Do NOT do this.  Still concerned? Consider that on Prime Day of 2018, Amazon sold more than 300,000 Instant Pots. That's more than a quarter of a million sales in only 1 day! If these things were not safe, you would see news stories every day about someone being injured. Still, things can go wrong. 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... Inst

Window Seat Ideas

Sexy Nerd and I are planning to build a window seat beneath the windows in our dining room. Well, really Sexy Nerd is going to build it while I blog in my pajamas, but I'm still planning to take 98% of the credit. I love all the possibilities offered by a new window seat - extra storage, a reading nook, and even a place to stretch out and take a nap. Here are some photos I've gathered from various sites for the best window seat ideas . There's something for every style, from a traditional all-white farmhouse to a cozy mountain hideaway. Update: This post has been so popular that I've added more window seat ideas . Enjoy! Window Seat Ideas My original  window seat ideas   post was written in February, 2011, when we were planning to add a window seat to our home. Two+ years later, how is that window seat coming along? To quote Christmas Vacation, I can picture it in my mind and it's breathtaking. Sexy Nerd has been too busy to build my window seat. Between organizin
