white house tree lighting, 2010

Happy Holidays!  Can you believe that Christmas is next weekend?  I love the holiday season!

Check out my guest post on the Living Harvest website where I talk about Staying Healthy, Active and Motivated All Winter Long!

New Years is the time for resolutions, but my tips will help you keep it up throughout the year. 🙂

Late last week, I was lucky enough to fly down to Washington DC to attend the National Christmas Tree Lighting!

The tree was lit on Thursday night, so we flew down that morning and were seated by 4:00pm for the lighting.  Before heading to the airport, I made up a smoothie for breakfast (and packed up some snacks).

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 6-8 frozen strawberries
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed
  • 4 tbsp hemp protein powder
  • 1-1.5 cups milk

Topped with a little granola for garnish.

We were very close to the stage and the tree for the lighting!

Our family friends really hooked us up!

It was freezing cold!  So, we bundled up and sat close together for some warmth.  It was definitely worth it, though!

Once President Obama and the first family arrived at the lighting, the party was ready to start.

Ready, set…

LIGHT!!

Apparently, this is the most energy efficient Christmas tree ever!  I’m not really sure how it can be with all of those lights…

After the lighting, Maroon 5 and other singers performed before Santa made his way on stage.

It was a gorgeous night!
