National Napping Day & Protect-A-Bed Giveaway

I have some very exciting news to share with you all, today is National Napping Day.  I won’t be able to nap today because I am at the Home & Housewares show in Chicago and napping is not on my schedule haha.  But you all can take a nap for me and tell me how much you loved it.

Why am I writing about napping to you all if I can’t even do it you ask?  The answer is simple and comes in two parts.  First is that you can nap and I think that is great.  Second is that today only because of National Napping Day Protect-A-Bed will be hosting a Twitter contest where they will be giving away sets of Premium Pillow Protectors to those who share the funniest place they’ve ever taken a nap.  To enter, follow @protect_a_bed on twitter and use the hashtag #nappingday to share your funniest or strangest nap location.

  • Protect-A-Bed® manufactures state-of-the-art mattress and pillow protectors that provide protection from dust mites, incontinence and bed bugs.
  • All Protect-A-Bed® products extend the life of your mattress and greatly reduce the time and costs involved in early mattress replacement.
  • Protect-A-Bed® is renowned worldwide as the developer of the first ultra thin mattress protector.
  • Protect-A-Bed offers consumers a complete line of protective bedding products to create a Healthy Sleep Zone. The unique technology featured in Protect-A-Bed’s mattress and pillow protectors was developed in South Africa in 1980 before the company was officially established in the United States in 2000. Now selling in 27 countries, Protect-A-Bed is a worldwide leader in mattress protection innovation. The company developed the proprietary Miracle Membrane® and patented Bug Lock® and Secure Seal®, which help create a dry, bed bug free, anti-allergy sleep zone for people of all ages. Protect-A-Bed products are listed as a Class 1 Medical Device with the Food and Drug Administration and have received the Good Housekeeping Seal. For more information, visit

    Research shows 10 percent of the general public and as many as 90 percent of people with allergic asthma (depending on the study you read) have an allergy to dust mites. And, dust mites love spoiling our napping refuge, taking up residence in mattresses and pillows. In fact, as many as two million dust mites can thrive in an unprotected mattress.

    Besides dust mites, it’s not unusual for other allergy triggers like pollen and pet dander to become trapped within mattresses. By using a mattress protector, allergy sufferers can create an impermeable barrier between themselves and the allergens within their bed. By coupling mattress protection with pillow protectors that seal allergens within pillows, people can create a virtually allergy-free nap space.

    I bet your wondering why I am telling you all about Protect-A-Bed Mattress covers right.  Well that answer is simply I am giving away one to one lucky reader as well as receiving one myself for telling you all about the National Napping Day.

      I would have to say that my husband falls asleep so easily and hard, that more than a few times, he has fallen asleep on the couch and fallen to the floor without ever waking up!

      We had just finished eating turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. We all went to the family room afterwards. About an hour later we all started wondering where my then 8yo daughter was. We found her curled up under the dinner table sound asleep! LOL!

      Yesterday, I was so excited to have my husband come home from work. I spent all day cleaning the house and preparing a special dinner. By the time he got home, I was passed out on the couch-exhausted from working all day!

      I am one of those who cannot nap. But once my son (who was about three at the time) fell asleep standing up, he was just slouched over on the bed. It was hillarious.

      I normally can’t sleep anywhere but in bed but a few years ago while in Beijing, China, I was driving down a mountain full of potholes in a rickety old bus. While everyone bounced around the bus holding on for dear life, I slept the ride away!

      Well, it’s not too funny, but I just layed down on the couch for a bit today while my 2 little guys were coloring………I didn’t know that they were coloring each other, NOT their coloring books!!! That 5 minute rest turned into a disaster!!!

      Well once I fell asleep and my sister kept talking to me and asked if I was asleep and I replied “of course I am not, I wouldn’t be answering you if i was”. I was asleep don’t remember a thing!

    27. sandy says:

      I fall asleep easily when tired too, and have been known to fall asleep at theatres, etc but the funniest was when we went to an amusement park and were in there early, and first thing hit the roller coaster type ride, and since the we were in the early crowd there was not a long wait so they doubled the first ride. Sitting in- well hanging in the first row was beyond sickening and I looked like a drunk afterward, and decided if i did not close my eyes I was going to ruin it for the rest- I found a bench with alot of shade and told the rest come back for me in an hour, and well I was going to just sit and gt my balance back, and instead fell asleep, and took off my shoes and all without realizing- luckily there was a cart vendor making sure I was alright but seriously i am more apt now to walk the mile across the park or two and nap in the car.

    28. valerie mabrey says:

      I love to nap in the car except for the dream where you go to fall!

    29. Jaque says:

      I fell asleep on a cross country flight…when I awoke I had my head on my seat partner’s shoulder and my arm flung around him! I was mortified, but he simply smiled sweetly.

      Thank you. 🙂

      while in college “napped” during my anthro lecture. Over 500 students so figured the prof wouldn’t notice. (I was exhausted because had worked late the night before.) Prof shouted at me through the mic and everyone stared at me. yikes.

      Many years ago, I took a friend of mine to visit family 4 hours away. That evening we decided to hit the night clubs with my older sister. I was still tired from the trip, actually I was exhausted and knew I was not going to make it through the night without a nap. I asked my sister and friend to keep an eye on me and I layed down on a bench at the club and took a nap for about 20 minutes. They couldn’t believe I could sleep with all that noise, but sleep I did and I woke up refreshed and we partied till late in the night :).

    33. R Hicks says:

      My most recent funny sleeping story happened the other day. I was very tired and took a nap and then my kitties decided to romp and play. They chose me as their object of play!

      Sometimes, after my husband gets home from work, I take a nap in our bed. While I’m sleeping, our son likes to climb up and jump on me. Sometimes, I’ll open my eyes to find one of our two laying there staring back at me.

    42. chrissyb says:

      as a new mommy my cats have been starved for attention. I put the baby to sleep and took a nap as well. When I woke up I felt something warm on both sides of my face. Both of my cats decided to nap with me and used my pillow as well. I had a fuffy cat on each cheek!

      I guess my funny napping story involves my cat. I must ‘assume the correct position’ in order for her to let me nap! She wants me on my side, with my knees bent to form a hammock with the blanket so she can join me in ‘our’ nap! If I’m not in the right spot, she’ll bug me/walk on me/talk to me until I fix it!

    47. Monique Rizzo says:

      I love to nap in the car at lunch. Thanks for the chance.

      I’m sorry but I really don’t have a funny napping story. I can’t nap I am an insomniac. I guess the best story I have was sleeping in the airport in Thailand but it really wasn’t funny.
