Morningside Mile & Block Party Returns to Benefit Atlanta’s Oldest Fire Station

Doc Chey’s celebrates 16th anniversary during National Fire Prevention Month with Atlanta’s only 1-mile race, noodle eating contest and other family-friendly festivities

Doc Chey’s is pleased to announce the return of the fourth annual Morningside Mile 1-mile race and block party benefitting Atlanta’s oldest fire station on Sunday, October 20, from noon to 2 p.m. Participants and non-runners alike are invited to enjoy an afternoon of festivities at the Morningside Village shopping center, home to the original Doc Chey’s. Block party activities are family-friendly and will include the annual Doc Chey’s noodle eating contests for adults and kids, music, food from local restaurants, cookie decorating with Alon’s bakery, a bouncy house, face painter, fire safety tips from Atlanta firefighters and games for kids and adults alike.

Race registration is currently open and the number of participants is limited this year. Registered runners get a technical race hat, free SweetWater beer (for adults) or Yoforia frozen yogurt (for kids), and a raffle ticket for a chance to win local merchant gift cards.  Families and strollers are welcome and encouraged to participate! New this year, teams of four can enter the race and the fastest team will win a $100 Doc Chey’s gift card.  Runners can register in-store at Phidippides and Highland Runners or online at Registration is $25 per person and will close on Thursday, October 17, or at 1000 runners, whichever comes first.

Last year’s Morningside Mile raised $8,000 for Atlanta fire station 19 in Virginia Highland and since its inception has raised more than $21,000. Over the years, lack of funding for proper maintenance on this 1925 historic landmark has resulted in termite damage to the staircase, holes in the ceiling and standing water in the station due to poor drainage.

Doc Chey’s Noodle House is a neighborhood restaurant that spreads good karma by serving affordable, freshly-wok’d noodles, stir-fries and handmade dim sum inspired by the cuisines of China, Japan, Thailand, Korea and Vietnam. For more information, visit

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.

Our friends at Febreze invited us to …

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, …
