Inman Park Festival, April 30- May 1

Do you really need a reason to don your favorite costume [or Star Trek uniform] and skip through a maze of music, food and art behind a manly butterfly and Seed & Feed Marching Abominables (you gotta see it to believe it)? I don't! But I'm so glad The Inman Park festival's parade gives me an excuse to do just that. Of all Atlanta's many happenings this spring, I am most looking forward to the peace & love spirit of this festival. Other fun activites include: The 2011 Tour of Homes, Atlanta's largest street market, Live bands on three stages, Performances from five local dance companies, and the Kidszone.
Hope to see you there! Look for a 'cute mom over 40' Star Trek Lt (Next Generation) covered in powdered sugar, surrounded by 4 civilians (3 chatty kids and a bewildered football coach).
Inman Park Festival: Free! April 30, 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; May 1, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.. Euclid Avenue N.E. and Elizabeth Street N.E., Atlanta. 770-635-3711, For information on other spring happenings, visit Access Atlanta

Enough with the Christmas gifts already...What about me Santa?

Has anyone else grown tired of purchasing for others? Don't change the channel. I'm just being honest. And before you ask....No! I haven't completed my Holiday shopping. But I will because I have no choice. With a husband, 5 kids (including our dog Sam), parents, in-laws, and friends to buy for, the holiday's have become more 'obligation' and less 'comfort' & 'joy'. This post is by no means a silent protest against shopping or giving others. It's a simple diversion from all that gift giving talk to focus on the big picture. Me! I need stuff too, you know!  It sounds kinda selfish on the surface but think about it. How would it look for me to show up on Christmas day (and all the ensuing parties) bearing gifts, in a ratty t-shirt and jacked-up jeans? I'm just sayin'...Don't lose yourself in the race to check off all those 'Naughty' and 'Nice' dependents on your list.
Here's some items items to help trigger your selfish side:
