I’ve always loved Thanksgiving weekend. No, not because of the food (actually, I’ve only grown to love the food of the day in the past few years…), but because of the traditions that we partake in, and the way the weekend seems to “kick-off” the holiday season. As TJ and I prepare to welcome Harper into the world (34 days!!!) traditions have been something we have talked about a lot. Most the traditions from the weekend are ones I have been a part of since I was a child, and brought into my marriage with TJ. From homemade cinnamon rolls on Thanksgiving morning, going around the table saying what you are thankful for, and dinner immediately followed by watching “Christmas Vacation”… to the next day of lunch and black Friday shopping with the ladies… traditions are what make a family special and unique. They ground us in our roots and help us feel a sense of love of belonging. So on that note, I hope you had a wonderful weekend partaking in whatever traditions you and your loved ones have… or creating new ones with those you love! Have a wonderful week!

Well, I indulged. So post turkey day fitness included this legs workout, along with long walks and this week’s Women’s Health challenge.

Instead of the usual “Weekend Wish-list,” I decided to give you the “Best of Cyber Monday.” I’ve rounded up some cozy favorites, high priced bargains, and some items for the little one in your life (or the one in your life who is expecting!).
