Jan Gets a Blog!
I realized one of my long-time goals and launched my Girl on the Go blog covering travel-related news, events in Atlanta and relationships. Check out other blogs from travelgirl contributors here.
It's snow day every day in Atlanta with the Snow Mountain attraction at Stone Mountain Park. Go tubing, make snow angels, throw snowballs and build an igloo. Then relax and roast marshmallows over the fire pits for S'Mores. Snow Mountain is open through March 7. www.snowmountainpark.com
Win a Trip to Israel
The Israel Ministry of Tourism has launched its Chanukah microsite – go on, light a virtual candle for each night of the Festival of Lights and learn something about Israel. And you can also enter to win a free trip. Please visit www.goisrael.com/Chanukah and enter the first keyword: Modiin. Participants can register throughout the Chanukah holiday.
Mobile, Alabama is starting 2011 off right by dropping a massive MoonPie from the sky at midnight. The O'Jays will be entertaining the crowds at a street party as the 12-foot-tall MoonPie slowly drops from a 34-story building, along with fireworks and a laser show. The party starts in the afternoon with a Mardi-Gras-style parade – after all this is the real home of Mardi Gras.www.mobilenewyear.com
Pick of the Week
I've left glasses on airplanes, in restaurants and in the purse I forgot to bring with me. So I'm loving the clever idea of wearing this pretty, stylish necklace and looping my glasses through it when I'm not wearing them. These Eye Ring necklaces from Corinne McCormack are a perfect gift for any of your glasses-wearing friends. The one pictured is $20 and is available at Nordstrom's, Bloomingdales and online at http://eyebar-store.mwrc.net
