I've been called a go-getter my entire life so it's hard for me to sleep in. To start my day off right I turn to headline news and watch Morning Express, hosted by Robin Meade. Meade, an Emmy award winner and author, brightens my morning with her bright personality and even brighter wardrobe. I love her fashion sense so much I often find myself tweeting about her outfit of the day. Robin isn't just all flash as she has covered all types of events during her career ranging from the 1996 Olympics to performing a tandem skydive with former president George H. Bush to celebrate his 85th birthday. So, if you are up early and want to catch up on the latest news turn to Headline News and check out Morning Express with Robin Meade.

WHERE 2 GO
I have always wanted to take my beloved boxer,Blaise, to the beach, but since Miami was too far to drive, I decided on the lake. We took a 40 minute drive outside of Atlanta, followed the pickups towing jet skis, and came upon Lake Allatoona. Lake Allatoona is a U.S Army Corps of Engineers reservoir, and is one of Georgia's hidden treasures. With 270 miles of shoreline and 12,000 acres of water, Lake Allatoona is the second smallest of the nine Great Lakes of Georgia. Lake Allatoona is open year round and offers many activities from boating, fishing, jet-skiing, and camping for vacationing and or just plain ole recreation. With it being a Saturday and the weather great, I knew it would be crowded, so I asked the lake attendant where to go just to enjoy the lake with Blaise. She directed me to a hidden area behind the park office and let me just say, it was heaven! With our blanket, we found a small area on the shoreline and enjoyed the view along side other water dogs and their parents, and for a park fee of only $5 it was well worth it! Next weekend, we hope to go back and rent a cabin and expore the park at Red Top Mountain - so STAY TUNED! Meanwhile, If you want to get in on the lakes activities, click the link below and remember that WHO 2 KNOW WHERE 2 GO sent ya!
Willys Mexicana Grill
When I'm in need of some good fast mexican eats, I call my best friend. You may know him by the name of Willy! Ok I don't really call Willy, but just so you know, there really is a Willy who started Willy's for his love and longing for great mexican food. Although I love mexican food, before Willy's, I didnt eat burritos. Now I must have the adobe chicken burrito with all the fixins! The service and staff at Willy's are fast and friendly, just like I like it. They are also generous with the toppings. So generous, in fact, that when they are done rolling my burrito, its larger then my head and keeps me full for hours! Willy's offers many other menu items, but for me the burrito is KING! When you visit, be sure to stop by the salsa bar and get yourself a few cups of salsa for the bag of chips given with your meal. I like the tomatillo sauce - it's sooo yummy! Willy's has several locations throughout Atlanta, so for your next taco or burrito craving, stop by and tell them WHO 2 KNOW WHERE 2 GO sent ya!
No Mas Hacienda
Looking to find a place with some cool nick nacks for your home? Well, head on over to No Mas Hacienda, right next door to No Mas Cantina in the Castleberry Hills district. After grabbing a quick lunch at No Mas Cantina, I had a craving for their guacamole, I stopped by the Hacienda next door and was in heaven. If you are like me, you like different things that you can't just find anywhere. I found that and more here. The pottery and jewelry were beautiful and I had to be pulled out of there before I bought the cutest piggy bank, which I could figure out how to put money in but not get money out - go figure. So, after you quench your craving for guacamole at No Mas Canitina, make sure to stop into the Hacienda next door and tell them WHO 2 KNOW WHERE 2 GO sent ya!
