HAPPY 4th of July!

What are everyone’s planes for this weekend? I love the 4th of July! I found a healthy recipe that you all could make for your BBQ this Saturday…simple, delish, and pretty! Recipe is below. Our plans are to grill out and then head to a little town near by and watch the fireworks on the lake. I would love to hear about your plans for the 4th!

ALSO, I’m always talking about myself and how I’m doing with my weight loss journey. I would love to hear about your diet. Please email me on how you’re doing or if you have any tips and I will post it next Thursday. I’m sure it would be a motivation for others to see! My email is Hope to hear from you!
