Military Appreciation Event Held in Pemberton Place During Atlanta’s Veterans Day Parade

ATLANTA – In recognition of Veterans Day, the Georgia Aquarium, Inside CNN Studio Tours and the World of Coca-Cola will host a Veterans Day Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Pemberton Place. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place between the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola during the 2012 Veterans Day Parade.

Presented by the Georgia Veterans Day Parade Association of Atlanta, Inc., this year’s Veterans Day Parade will begin at 11:11 a.m. in downtown Atlanta and will pass in front of the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola on Baker Street where the Pemberton Place celebration will be held. The celebration will offer visitors the opportunity to interact with military personnel representing various branches of the armed forces, see military equipment up close and learn about some of the many programs that support our veterans.

 During the celebration, static displays of military equipment covering a variety of eras and representing several branches of the armed forces will cover the Pemberton Place green space. Notable displays will include an Apache helicopter, Paladin Howitzer and a Vietnam-era UH-1H “Huey” helicopter provided by The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation. The Humvee used by CNN journalists in the first Gulf War will be relocated to Pemberton Place from the atrium of the CNN Center just for this event as well. 

In addition, a special demonstration by the United States Army’s Silver Wings Parachute Team will take place at the conclusion of the Veterans Day Parade at approximately 12:30 p.m. Representatives from the Red Cross Military Group and other organizations also will be onsite to provide information regarding their efforts to support members of the armed forces. The Georgia National Guard will share insight into its “Guard Your Business” program which highlights the many advantages business owners may be eligible for when hiring veterans.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*

When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 

I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
