BUSINESS REVIEW: LegoLand Atlanta

I was so excited to head to Legoland earlier this year!! I've been about 3 or 4 times since then and have enjoyed each moment. A lot of people that I have spoken with prior to going said that they expected more from the attraction but in my mind, how much more could it be considering that it is inside the mall. Needless to say, my exceptions weren't much so perhaps that is why they exceeding them.
First, let me say that I was surprised that the attraction had "rides" as a part of the attraction. Again, it's inside of the mall, not even the size of a traditional department store. To me, that says they are trying. LOL There is a ride that is similar to a carnival ride that goes around in a circle while 2 individuals sit in these little pods. It doesn't go fast, LOL but it goes. It's cute. The other ride is a little more engaging and is my favorite of the two. You are in a cart and shooting lasers at the bad lego guys that appear throughout the ride on digital screens. On this ride, they also take your picture and you are able to purchase it at the end, complete with the score so that you have bragging rights with the others who are in the cart with you. (HINT: Make sure to ask if they have a combo package because sometimes it is not listed on the screens and to ask for the membership discount if you are a season pass holder.)

They also have an exhibit that changes each season. Over the course of my time having a season pass, there have been 2 exhibits. They have both been nice and contain a 'jungle gym' type of structure that allows for the children to have a play area type obstacle course experience.

The other areas include a toddler play section with huge soft legos and cute lego statues, a 3D movie theater with special effects like rain and wind (not for the little ones, in my opinion), a cafe, and a special room with Atlanta-themed lego structures that are absolutely amazing and a moving lego branded marta train! There's also a small room that seems to contain a classroom setting where you can make lego collectables but in all the times I've been there, it's never been open.

Every time we have been here, has been fun and exciting for my little one. We also always hop over to Johnny Rockets for shakes afterwards which is a nice treat. (Note: The cafe in LegoLand has limited options so if you want to grab something in the food court of the mall before heading in, that's a good idea.)

I think we'll try LegoLand in Orlando next! Has anyone been to the bigger LegoLand Theme Park Resort in Florida? What was the best part about it?

Tameka's Tips:
~ Purchase your tickets online before heading to the box office. You will save money and even have the option to purchase a ticket that comes with a lego collectible.
~ Phipps Plaza has underground parking that will put you close to the door of the section of the mall where LegoLand is. Only a few trips up the escalator and your there. They also have outdoor parking but that's a trek.
~ My favorite souvenir purchase is the "Minifigure" lego men and women where you get 5 for $15. (You can also use your season pass discount in the store so don't forget to ask the cashier.) Once purchased, your kids can "trade" them with staff members every time they come to Lego Land.
~ The season pass is worth it if you are going more than once.
~ Try to get as much information from the website as possible because you will almost never get anyone on the phone if you have a question.

Other things worth mentioning include the fact that they have an adult night, rooms for birthday parties, toddler only days, and a store that is accessible to customers even if you did not attend the attraction.

Plant-Based Eating Plan - Meal Prep (11/19) - 1 Week Trial

Hey Corner Clique!!

So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!


Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!

I guess that brings me to my why..... I hope this doesn't sound shallow but..... I really want to wear (and look good in) a sequin dress for New Years Eve. Not just this year, but year after year, after year, after year, after year..............................Let's be real, sequin can be very unforgiving, it's just not one of those fabrics that everyone loves. But it can be so beautiful and festive during this time of year. Sequin makes me happy!! :-) Therefore, I'm going to work ha…

Perfect Music In My Shower.... And Its Not My Own Singing LOL

I could not have been more excited to receive this package in the mail today!! It finally came..... My AncordWorks Bluetooth shower speaker in Army Green. And while I'm not the easiest critic on new technology because I've tried some duds in my day, I could wait to rip open the Amazon box on this little ray of sunshine. It didn't disappoint!!

I had been considering purchasing a BlueTooth speaker for quite some time but there are so many on the market these days that I had a hard time narrowing down my choices. I considered a "Beats By Dre" brand but ultimately, I just don't believe the hype about them. I think they are too expensive and are mostly recommended based on the celebrity fan fare associated with Dr. Dre and the brand. While I am, of course, a fan of Dre, I wasn't about to drop over $100+ bucks for a simple speaker, especially considering I probably wouldn't use it daily.

As you can see, I've been living in the stone age using this ancie…

BUSINESS REVIEW: Panera Bread, Greenville, SC (Haywood Mall)

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I had the very best experience today at Panera Bread at Haywood Mall in Greenville, SC. Managers Marc, Susie, and Keith and the rest of the staff made it very hard for any other Panera to impress me more than they did today!! I am officially #TeamStore654
Panera also has this new "Fast Lane" and "Rapid Pick Up" system that makes the experience super convenient and easy! Who doesn't LOVE easy? With the fast lane, you walk in and order from a Kiosk (read: ipad) and everything is right there in words and pictures for you to select. With the "Rapid Pick Up," everyone with a mobile device essentially becomes a cash register. You order through your phone and when you arrive to the store, your order is waiting for you in the "Rapid Pick Up" section. Easy Breezy!


THE GOOD: ~ Free Cookie for using the Kiosk - This might only be for a limited time but every time I used the kiosk today, they gave me a free cookie! No explanation neede…
