Yay!!! Holiday Weekend!!!

Woo Hoo…  Holiday Weekend!!!  My car is packed and I’m heading home (to my parents’ place) straight from the office.  This will be my first alcohol-free Fourth of July in more than 10 years.  Growing up in small-town Wisconsin, the way that anything is celebrated (holidays, festivals, garage sale weekend) is by erecting a beer tent, inviting a band and playing softball.

 I am excited to be going home.  I plan to spend my weekend swimming, practicing my new hula hoop tricks, and hanging out with friends and family.  I’m hoping for LOTS of fruits and veggies and a LITTLE barbecue and dessert.  I am going to see fireworks every night and I’m running in the fun run (5k) on Monday morning, both of which make me happy.

 I am including links to several healthy, holiday weekend recipe ideas:
