Giveaway: Garden Lights, Holiday Nights at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens


Atlanta Botanical Garden’s new Garden Lights, Holiday Nights show this holiday season looks so beautiful!  We are planning on going down sometime this weekend. I can't wait to take the boys to see it!

I have a family four pack of tickets to give away. The tickets will be good for any night, and it is running nightly from Nov 19 – Jan 7. 

Here are a few fun facts about the Garden Lights, Holiday Nights display: 

Garden Lights, Holiday Nights features more than three times as many lights as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.  

Low-voltage lasers are used inside the Conservatory, streaming sprays of green dots among lollipop topiaries, to create an “Avatar” effect. 

Because of the show’s use of energy-efficient LED lights, the entire production runs on 300 watts of power.

Up to 700 luminaries line pathways throughout the Garden. And number of lights in display - 1 million

The Great Lawn display uses a computer-controlled system designed to run complex theme park shows and is capable of presenting up to 16.7 million colored lights timed to a musical soundtrack.

    Guest Post: Reclaiming Your Fabulous Self by Ellen Lubin-Sherman

    I recently did a review of the book by Ellen Lubin-Sherman, author of THE ESSENTIALS OF FABULOUS: BECAUSE “WHATEVER” DOESN’T WORK HERE ANYMORE  Loved It!   Ellen was kind enough to offer her advise in a few guests posts for My Atlanta Mommy.  I am grateful and excited to introduce you to the first of those posts.  Enjoy!

    Reclaiming Your Fabulous Self
    It boggles my mind. So many people who are truly fabulous walking around listening to a steady stream of negative and diminishing self-talk. No wonder we feel like we’re carrying a 500 pound suitcase – all that nonsense is dead weight. Interested in traveling the world with a lot less baggage?

    1. Get dressed everyday like you’re off to somewhere. Those exercise clothes are great for exercise but not for the entire day. Go to the gym, take a shower and now slip on a great pair of pants (jeans, corduroys, chinos, wool) and a crisp shirt. Voila! You’re going to feel like you can take on the world.

    2. Smile. For no reason. Just smile at everyone. Tell the world you’re a happy, optimistic, full of great humor kind of person. Now you’re acting like a human magnet, bringing like-minded people into your constellation. Oh happy days – the friends you’re going to make.

    3. Do not tolerate friends who diminish you (“oh you’ll never get that job”) or make you feel badly about yourself. Those dear friends are “frenemies” who need to be jettisoned immediately. Like old milk, friends who do not wish the best for you are ready to be tossed.

    4. Ask a board member (see Chapter 11 in The Essentials of Fabulous) the ten things she loves about you. Write everything down. Don’t disagree, just write. Now type it up and paste that list inside your medicine cabinet. Every morning look at that list and marvel at how other people see you. “You’re fun to be with”; “You have a wonderful wit”; “You’re always there when I need you.” Memorize that list. Only listen to that – that’s your personalized radio station.
    5. Find something that you’re passionate about and share it with the world. Baking, knitting, teaching, riding a bicycle, running, writing, developing a style – it doesn’t matter. The most important thing is for you to revel in your passion and invite others to share in your delight. That’s how the fabulous operate – their passion is contagious like the measles.

    Random thoughts: "I'm kicking my a**! Do you mind?! and Fire Marshal Bill

    Travel Deal: $50 and receive a $100 gift card for TravelocityIncentives.com

    good morning!  i hope all of you had a happy weekend.  i took care of a couple things that have been nagging me on my to-do list.  you know how it goes, life sometimes just gets a bit crazy and this time of year it is one of the craziest.   my emails were drowning me and i had to take control.  i was 1500 emails deep yesterday morning when i, armed with a very strong cup of coffee, prepared for the mass elimination. 

    i started out by searching all of the subscriptions i have, groupon, living social, etc. and deleting them in mass.  then i deleted the newsletter subscriptions i requested, but haven't taken the time to read in a very long time.  i went from 1500 to 167 emails.  what a great feeling.  i can breath again.

    most of the sites were super easy to unsubscribe from. click click.  done.  but not dealster.  someone was thinking over there. lol. this is what happens when you go to unsubscribe from dealster.com.  

    so glad i knocked this off of my to-do list.  if cleaning up your inbox is on your list of things to do, i have the same sentiments as dealster - if you subscribe to my feed, thank you and please don't go.  and if you don't subscribe, it would be cool if you did ;-)    Visit here for tons of great tips on email management.


    And dealster,  genius using kc and the sunshine band to win us back.  evil genius.  you made me laugh this morning.  thank you.  and thanks for the great travel deal right now too!  Over at Dealster.com pay $50 and receive a $100 gift card redeemable at www.TravelocityIncentives.com.

    Kevn Kinney and Findlay Brown at The Old Crow

    A few nights ago we stopped by The Old Crow in Sandy Springs for a late dinner.   It's a fantastic little hole in the wall with amazing food, hdtv, pool tables, and lots and lots of delicious live music!

    They are hosting Kevn Kinney of Drivin' and Cryin' and Findlay Brown this Sunday night at 8:30.  I have not seen these gentlemen perform, but am told it is a show not to be missed.  Here is a review from someone who has been there - done that - loved it - Chris Martin of The Examiner.


    So, call your sitters now for Sunday night and stop by The Old Crow for amazing food, great people, and some beautiful live jams!   Hope to see you there! 

    For reviews on The Old Crow you can check out Yelp or UrbanSpoon.

    SweetWater Brewery Expansion. yay!

    Thanks to 360 Media and the guys over at SweetWater Brewery, I was one of the luckies who got to do a "Behind the Construction" media tour and happy hour.  My friend Justin is a HUGE Sweetwater fan AND consumer so I asked him to go with me.  He was, most assuredly,  like a kid in a candy store. The best candy store EVER.  Not really being a beer drinker myself, he was happy to help out with the tastings and had more than a few samplings of their new brews and a few of his old favorites as well.  I did try some of their Fresh Sticky Nugs.  Yummy! I feel silly trying to say all the proper beer terms, because I have no idea what I'm talking about, so for you beer fans, here is a review from BeerAdvocate.com

    and for the REAL beer connoisseurs:

    Malts: 2-row, Wheat, Munich, Chocolate
    Hops: Nugget, Columbus, Centennial,
    with Fresh Nugget dry hop
    Beginning Gravity: 19.5 Plato
    Final Gravity: 5 Plato
    ABV: 8.0% IBU’s: 130

    This is a happy little video for SweetWater fans of the "Behind the Construction".  It is also a really cool video to watch with your kidlets who are into watching diggers, and backhoes, and other construction whatnot. 

    Stop by the brewery Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays from 5:30 - 7:30 and starting Saturday's 2:30 - 4:30 for brewery tours and tastings.  The tour is just $10 and you get a souvenir pint glass and 6 drink tickets (each good for a half a pint of beer).  Visit on Wednesdays, check in on foursquare and save yourself a buck on the tour too!

    SAVE THE DATE for the 

    80 different invitees will be there, each creating a one of a kind cask. A beer drinkers heaven of real ales created by retailers, media peeps, home brewers and SweetWaters favorite charities.

    Tickets are available online for $35 and day of at $40 (although they sold out last year) for unlimited Cask samples. SweetWater's killer lineup will be flowing as well and the brewery will be open for tours throughout the event. Rain or Shine.  This year there will have almost 20,000 square feet of tents so your beer stays covered. Visit here for all the details.  So moms and dads - book those sitters or grandmas and make it a stay downtown overnight kinda date! See you there!

    10 Tips to Save Energy Today

     
    10 Tips to Save Energy TodayEasy low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy and money.

    1. Install a programmable thermostat to keep your house comfortably warm in the winter and comfortably cool in the summer.

    2. Use energy efficient light bulbs with the ENERGY STAR® label.

    3. Air dry dishes instead of using your dishwasher's drying cycle.

    4. Turn off your computer and monitor when not in use.

    5. Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use (TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of power).

    6. Lower the thermostat on your hot water heater to 120°F.

    7. Take short showers instead of baths.

    8. Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes.

    9. Caulk, seal, and weather strip all seams, cracks, and openings to the outside.

    10. Look for the ENERGY STAR® label on home appliances and products. ENERGY STAR® products meet strict efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

    How do you save?
