Protect-A-Bed Napping Day Giveaway!

{This giveaway has closed. Congrats to #244 Ronda} It's National Napping Day! Wahoo - let's all jump back in bed and take a nap! I wish! As a mom, naps are pretty much out of the question, but that doesn't mean we can't try. If your children are still young enough, they may fall for the "napping game" or "let's see who can be the quietest the longest." Those are my favorite games.

If you're lucky enough to eke out a nap every once-in-awhile, be sure to share it with @Protect_A_Bed on twitter. Follow them on twitter and send them a tweet with hashtag #nappingday telling them the funniest (or strangest) place you've ever napped. You'll have the chance to win (2) two premium pillow protectors. The twitter contest is Monday, March 15th only, so hurrry!

But wait - Protect-A-Bed will not let you take this National Napping day lying down! One Suburban Jungle reader will have the opportunity to win a Queen sized Protect-A-Bed Mattress Protector (valued at $79.99!)
Why do you want one of these? Just in case it's not obvious, let me tell you a bit about mattress protectors. They rock! If you have young children or pets that may occasionally have potty accidents (or the dreaded vomit!) on your bed, you can just take the mattress protector off, wash it, and go on with your day (or night.)

We have them on both of our children's beds and they are life savers! Especially for vomit. I only wish I had one on my bed during the breast feeding days. TMI - really! But it's no joke.

Assuming none of your family members lose any bodily fluids, mattress protectors also keep dust mites and other allergens out of your mattress. I once read a statistic about how mattresses gain weight over the years. Gross. And I can tell you that in my recent vacuuming spree, I have vacuumed quite a stash out of my own mattress. Someone needs an adult sized mattress protector! Thankfully, Protect-A-Bed is about to rescue me from my own disgustingness. Just being honest.

And if you think Mattress protectors are stiff and plasticky - times have changed! Protect-A-Bed's mattress protectors are made of natural cotton toweling over the stain barrier layer and do not change the feel of your mattress. They're also designed to fit like a sheet and lay flat on the bed. How do I know? Besides the manufacturer's information, I own two of these. The two protectors my children use (including my son's pillow protector - he's asthmatic) just happen to be this brand.

I originally bought one for my daughter when she was first potty training and it worked so well, I bought one for my son. He was way beyond potty trained, but he's had the flu a few times and both protectors have paid for themselves and then some in time, cleanliness, and stress relief.

But enough about my sleeping arrangements, how do you get your hands one one of these mattress protectors?

Here's how to enter: Head to the Protect-A-Bed site, then come back and leave a comment sharing something you learned at the site.

This contest is open to US residents only and will end on March 29, 2010 at 9:00 PM, EST. The winner will be selected by random.org, posted here, and contacted by email. No compensation was received for this review/giveaway, but I did receive a free queen sized mattress protector. All opinions are my own.

    And a mattress cover would have totally saved our mattress after our homebirth- thankfully our baby was born in the tub and not the bed but there were some blood stains from post bleeding. And we co-slept and I breastfed which leaked everywhere on our mattress. I wish i had one of these!

Figuring out What's Wrong with Your Berry Plants by Leaf Analysis

I've been growing berries all my life. First raspberries and over the last 9 years blueberries and strawberries. Over that time, I have encountered an endless stream of problems and have figured out how to fix many of them. So I thought I'd put that knowledge online so people can easily figure out what might be going on with their berry plants and have a place to start to search for information. Most plants give signs of trouble with their leaves. In general, most plants (and especially berries) should have deep green leaves. Any other variation means trouble. Sometimes it's major. Sometimes it's an easy fix. Raspberries If your leaves have a purple tinge: It may mean the weather has been cold, they are just forming, or they are deficient in Potassium . To fix - apply light fertilizer (tomato fertilizer is a good choice, since it is higher in potassium which results in more flowers and more fruit - or buy Organic potassium source .) If your leaves are yellowing

Are Siberian Cats Hypoallergenic? The Truth about Siberian Cats!

Our Siberian kitten at 12 weeks old I thought we would never own a cat. My husband is allergic. And my son is allergic. So we put pet ownership out of our heads until some how we came across the Siberian cat breed. My husband spent all sorts of time researching Fel-D1 levels and everything he could about cats and allergies. He was convinced we could do it. So we began our search. First of all, you should know that there aren't very many Siberian cat breeders. At least on in our area. We called and emailed a few but they all had super long waiting lists and were hours away from our home. Then we found two that were close to home. They also had long waiting lists, but were close enough that we could go visit. We visited two separate breeders. We found them both to be very loving homes filled with cats. Soft, lovey, playful cats. But my both my husband and son had severe reactions after visiting the homes. Click here to see results of our first breeder visit . Even sti

9 Months Wearing Thinx - What I REALLY think and What you should know if you decide to use them!!

It's been 9 months since I bought my first pair of Thinx underwear. Since that time, I have transitioned to 90% reusable period products . I've figured out how to wash them, get them to stop being stinky , and when to use them.  I first heard of Thinx when a friend of mine showed me an article on Facebook.The article was an obvious paid to endorsement. I was disappointed that my friend couldn't see through the propaganda, but it did motivate me to dig deeper into reusable menstrual products. So I bought my first pair - I used a $10 off coupon and first time customers got free shipping. ( This link will give you $10 off if you decide to give them a go.) The first thing I did when they arrived was try them on. They fit well and looked really good. Fancy even? Well, maybe not for most people but they had lace and that is fancy in my world. I then tested them with a syringe of water to be sure that they could actually hold the liquid they claimed. They passed. I bo

How to Make Raw Almond Butter using a Blender (Vitamix)

You CAN make your own almond butter (peanut, cashew, sunflower, or ANY nut butter.) It's fast and easy - and you can do it in a blender! If you love almond butter, then I'd highly recommend learning how to make it yourself. I buy raw almonds   for about $3 a pound, so the savings aren't  huge , but knowing what goes into my almond butter is priceless.  What goes in? Nothing but almonds . You can certainly add salt, cocoa powder, sugar, honey, or whatever floats your boat - but the truth is - you don't have to!  You can roast the almonds and have a rich nutty flavored almond butter or you can make it raw (which to me - tastes more like cookie dough mixed with peanut butter, yums.) Here's the deal: you don't need to add oils or anything else. A vitamix blender (or other similarly powerful blender) can handle it.   Here's a video of me making raw almond butter. I used about 3 cups (measured by a 5 year old - so about  3 cups is fine). 

Can you fix broken plants with tape? - yes you can!

Can you fix broken plants with tape? YESSSSSS! Read on to hear how I have done it many times and how you can fix your plants too. A snapped Blueberry plant repaired with electrical tape and twine I take care of a lot of plants. And when I run out of plants, I take care of my neighbors' . Every once-in-a-while, I learn something that's worth sharing. This is one of those things. I found out that you CAN save plants by using tape. This winter, someone stepped on the main stem of one of my blueberry bushes and snapped it in half. I noticed it as soon as the snow melted and was devastated. It takes 3 years for a blueberry bush to "be ready" and it was year three. And the main stem was snapped clean off. So I did what anybody would do in an emergency like this. I hit the garage for whatever tape I could find. My husband had recently taught me that electrical tape sticks to nothing - but itself. And it sticks to itself well. I grabbed the electrical tape  from t
