Pigeon Forge TN Mini-Vacation

Hey neighbors!!

We are taking a trip to Pigeon Forge TN in a little under 2 weeks!! I am so excited!! We rented a cabin for the 5 of us and are taking the dogs with us too.  We are going for NQC, the National Quartet Convention.  This will be a week of wonderful southern gospel music, as well as a few speakers.

Not only are we going to be having a lot of fun, but you are going to see social media posts of our trip, including some products we are taking along with us.  Check these out, and then keep a lookout for them in our social media.

The first is from Overland Dog Gear.  I am so looking forward to using this Ultimate Week Away Duffle and the accompanying Dine Away Set on this trip.  This is going to make it easy to keep all the dog gear in one place.  I hate when we take the dogs along and are constantly searching for bowls, leashes, cleanup bags and toys.  This will make everything convenient.  It includes collapsible bowls and storage containers for dog food.  Keep watching for more and we will do a full post when we get back.




Next we have the Jabra ELITE 65t Wireless Earbuds.  My daughter already wants to take possession and we haven't left yet.  We will be sharing pics on social media!!  Watch and see who gets to wear them the most!!




Balmshot, lip balms will be carried by all of us girls on the trip.  We love these lip balms in shotgun shell style cases.  We have a variety of flavors.  See if you can tell which one is each girl's favorite!




Lugz Women's Dot.com 2.0 Oxford Sneaker are going to be my go to shoes for the trip.  Although my daughter has already asked if she can wear these on their sunrise hike on Monday morning!! Keep an eye out!!


Have any of you seen, In A Pikle?  This wonderful case will be traveling with us as well.  It has all kinds of handy items all in one organizer for those unexpected emergencies.  You know, like traveling and you need a safety pin, or a hand wipe, or even a bobby pin, you can find it all in the Pikle that ou pack before you leave home.  When you feel like you are in a pickle, check your Pikle.  I am sure you will see this being used.




Cozy Phones will also be seen in use on this trip!! We LOVE these comfortable fitting headphones!! They are perfect for trips so you can listen to music, watch a video on your tablet or phone, and they are even great when catching a quick nap.  They make really neat ones for children too!



Like I said, we will be using all these products on our trip.  We will also be visiting some Ripley's Gatlinburg attractions and Ober Gatlinburg.  I am sure we will share some of the places we stop to eat or shop.  So, make sure you follow us on our social media so you don't miss a single post!!

Alvin and The Chipmunks New Album Release!!



Hey neighbors!!

How many of you remember the Chipmunks singing Christmas Don't Be Late?  I do!!  They actually won three Grammys for that song in 1959 for "best Comedy Performance", " Best Recording for Children" and "Best Engineered Recording - Non-Classical".  Well, the Chipmunks released a new album titled "YOLO" digitally on August 30th.  It is available to stream on iTunes.  Did you realize they have been around 60 years?  I did not.

A family owned and operated business for 60 years, the Chipmunks made their debut with the 1958 novelty Christmas song, "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)" written and sung by Bagdasarian's late father, also named Ross. The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart and won Grammys for best comedy performance and best recording for children at the inaugural Grammy ceremony in 1959. "The Chipmunk Song" was also nominated for record of the year.


While Alvin and the Chipmunks are best known for their various television and movie projects they have also been the number one kids music band of all time with more than fifty million albums sold, including 6 Grammys and 16 gold and platinum albums. 

They have starred in three TV series.  The first was in the 1960's.  I was born in 1964, so that was the one I watched.  They then starred in the 1980's and they currently have a very popular series on Nickelodeon.

How to Survive a Hot Summer Night

If you often lay awake on a summer’s night, tossing and turning, and feeling glued to your bedsheets, it is likely your eyes will feel more than a little sore each morning. Thankfully, there are actions to take to make your sleep deprivation a thing of the past so that you can enjoy some much-needed shuteye during the height of the season.
To sleep peacefully in your bed, find out how to survive a hot summer night.
Stick with Cotton Bed Linen
While satin, silk, and polyester can feel great against your skin during fall and winter, they can be a living nightmare during hotter temperatures. It is, therefore, wise to stick with a lightweight cotton when selecting bed linen, such as Egyptian cotton. The breathable material can improve ventilation and airflow as you sleep, which can help you to drift off as soon as your head touches a pillow.
Install an HVAC System
Maintain a cool and comfortable bedroom by installing a HVAC system, which can help to regulate a room’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. To effectively cool off when the nights are more than a little sticky, you can fire up the in-built A/C unit to lower your body temperature and enter the land of nod. To effectively install the technology in your home, you should go online and search for ”the best plumbers in my area” by using a website designed to help you find the best service you require. 
Wear Loose-Fitting Pajamas
While many people choose to sleep au naturel during summer, it could make you feel warmer than necessary. That is because it can lead to sweat remaining on your body rather than being wicked away by fabric. For this reason, you should wear loose-fitting pajamas during the summer, such as a lightweight cotton shirt and shorts.
Drink a Cold Glass of Water Before Bed
Decrease your body temperature and prevent dehydration by drinking a cold glass of water before you go to bed. It can stop you from tossing and turning throughout the night, so you will feel full of energy once you wake up in the morning. However, avoid drinking too much water before bedtime or you might spend the night making multiple trips to the bathroom.
Chill Your Pulse Points
If you want to instantly reduce your body temperature before sleep, you should chill your pulse points before you slide into bed. For example, you should apply either a cold compress or an ice pack onto your:
  • Neck
  • Wrists
  • Elbows
  • Ankles
  • Groin
  • Behind your knees
It can provide instant relief from the summer heat, so you could wake up feeling refreshed the next day.
Use a Hot Water Bottle
Hot water bottles aren’t just for winter, as they can also be used during summer. Rather than adding boiling hot water, fill it with cold water and place it in the freezer for half an hour, which will allow you to enjoy a comfortable ice pack each night.
Close Your Drapes During the Day
Natural sunlight can quickly increase a room’s temperature, which can lead to you feeling restless and sticky once you go to bed. To keep your rooms cool, you should open up the windows throughout the day while keeping your blinds or drapes closed to prevent the sunshine from flowing into your bedroom. You also should turn off all electronics, which can make your home feel warmer than it needs to be.
Sleep Alone
As much as you might love sleeping next to your other half each night, it might be wise to enjoy a little distance during a hot summer night. Nothing can make you feel more uncomfortable than the feeling of another person’s warm skin when you are already feeling hot and sticky. 
While your partner might not be happy about the temporary separation, sleeping in the guest bedroom could reduce your body heat and will allow air to circulate across your body. Plus, it can prevent you from arguing with your spouse when they attempt to steal your space or cuddle up on a warm night.
Conclusion
While you might enjoy nothing more than the glorious sunshine during summer, it could become your worst nightmare once bedtime arrives. Instead of settling for a hot, sticky temperature that makes you want to walk into a cold shower, you should follow the above top tips to reduce your body temperature and quickly fall asleep each night. By doing so, you will feel relaxed and refreshed the next day, so you can make the most of the sun-filled season.
