Chastain Park – This park is my favorite place to walk and exercise. I always feel like I have taken a mini-vacation when I go around its beautiful walking path. A three to four mile loop, depending on the course you choose, will add pep to your step and put a smile on your face.
24/7 Comedy Radio – If you want a quick mood change as you are navigating our city’s traffic (which is a guaranteed bad mood) tune in to channel 92.3 FM for comedy radio. It’s amazing how fast your perspective changes – you may just go from smiling to a full-on belly laugh.
Samsung 5.1 Channel 1000W 3D Wi-Fi Blu-ray Home Theater System – I just got this awesome surround sound music system. It has a browser, blu-ray and surround sound for my TV. But the best part is having Pandora on my TV screen so I can play all the music I love. That makes me smile. $400
Dog-E-Glow LED collar – Spending time with your pets is something that makes most of us happy. Check out these fun colorful collars that will keep your pup safe and stylish at the same time!
Ballroom Dance Clubs or Johnny’s Hideaway – If you want to learn to dance, dance, dance, I love the pros at Ballroom Dance Clubs. They make you feel comfortable and are such great teachers. If you just want to “cut a rug,” there’s no place like Johnny’s Hideaway.

Jackie Treehorn Cocktail – If all else fails, have a drink with friends. This refreshing cocktail is named after a character in the movie “The Big Lebowksi” and can be found at Kaleidoscope Bistro & Pub. Made with ginger beer, bourbon and fresh squeezed lemon, it is sure to make you giggle.
