What are you most looking forward to this holiday weekend? For me, its baking on Christmas Eve, giving people their gifts and spending quality time with family!
Are there any holiday traditions in your family?
This is the second Christmas my boyfriend and I are spending together so we have started a new tradition: Christmas Eve will be spent with my boyfriend's family, Christmas morning we will be attending church and Christmas Day will be spent with my family.
Tonight I am hosting my Healthy through the Holidays teleclass! For those of you who missed registration, I will be recording the class and posting it on my website, so look out for it!
Enjoy your evening!
