Today I'm Offering Sleep To Someone.

When I was pregnant with both of my babies I got the dread restless-leg syndrome.  I hate it.  If you've ever experienced RLS, you know how terrible it is.  If you haven't - well, pray you never do.  I figured out that it was worse when I was tired and not moving much.  In other words, when I went to bed.  So, I'd lay down to go to sleep and then get attacked by horrible, itchy (not a need-to-scratch itchy), restless legs that would NOT stop twitching.  Then it would get worse because I couldn't sleep.  **sigh**  I figured out that if I could fall asleep fast enough then I'd beat it.  Well, that's easier said than done.  Hubster isn't exactly a still or silent sleeper.  And he ALWAYS falls asleep before me.  So, I started drinking lavender-chamomile tea and guess what?  It worked!!!!  I'd drink it about 30 minutes before bedtime and usually I'd fall asleep pretty quickly.  A warm bath or shower helped too.  And speaking of sleep, baths, lavender, and chamomile......  I'm giving away just that!!!  Yay!  I love giveaways!  Not that I ever win anyway, but that's beside the point.  :) 

Ok.  So the pic isn't the greatest.  My camera reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally wanted to focus on that clover.  **shrug**  If you want a better view, it looks like this, only smaller.

There you have it. Your very own brand-new bottle of Sleep.  2 fl oz.  It's lavender chamomile body wash & foam bath.  Mmmmmm.  Wait, foam bath?  Is that the new name for bubble bath?  Hm.  I think bubbles are more exciting than foam.  But that's just me.   

Anyways, it's from Bath & Body Works.  **laugh**  I almost wrote Bed, Bath, & Beyond.  Am I the only one who gets those two mixed up?

You wanna know how to win?  Just leave a comment.  Oh, and follow me with Google Connect of course.  That's it!  Easy peasy. 

Oh, if you want an EXTRA entry (aka separate) you can include a link to one of my posts in one of your posts on your blog.  Gosh.  Did that make sense? 

I'll leave this open until Monday night.  Then I'll put every body's names in Britt's new sunhat and let Ash draw the winner out.  :)

Hah! I always get those two mixed up :) My husband is not exactly a peaceful sleeper either - I try so hard to get to sleep before he does otherwise I'm a goner with all the tossing he does and the snoring... oh well!

That's funny you bring up the RLS because that was something I had b=never experienced until I was pregnant, and both times around I got it, and BAD! I wanted to kill myslef it was so annoyingly annoying. or cut my legs off. or both! Anyways, now we are thinking of getting pregnant again, and I am holding off because of the thought of that. Yikes!!

One of my least favorite things about being pregnant is not being able to sleep...especially when you know you'll soon be up all night with a newborn!

I completely understand about getting Bath & Body Works and Bed, Bath, and Beyond mixed up. One of my friends and I call it "Bed, bath and body works" to refer to both places. lol!
