Elf On The Shelf at The Mansion on Peachtree

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

My adorable friend, Barry Belcher (who you might remember from our hilarious cooking videos here and here), is the new Marketing Manager at The Mansion on Peachtree. Their Elf on the Shelf is back for Christmas and is making appearances all over the property during the holidays.

Take a look! And go visit him in person. While you are there you can duck in for a drink at their swanky bar. You never know you you might meet there!

I hope you are reading this while watching the Macy’s Day Parade in your jammies and drinking hot chocolate on the couch. While someone else peels the potatoes.
