I’m sure most of us have a holiday party or two to attend this coming weekend so I want to leave you with a little tip that comes directly from your kids: Socialize and put DOWN the fork!
Have you ever noticed how kids rarely eat at parties? Have you ever seen the excitement on their faces when they see their friends or cousins? Do you pay attention to the fact that they never stop moving? It’s time to take a little lesson from the kids...ENJOY YOUR COMPANY!
Too often we get caught up in what the buffet has to offer and forget the TRUE reason we have social gatherings...to SOCIALIZE! This weekend I want you to move your gab session away from the dessert table and focus on your family and friends. You will definitely find you enjoyed your time more when you aren’t stuffed to the brim with every appetizer offered.
For the next three weekends I really want you to think of the food buffet as an afterthought and engage in the conversation around you, not the tempting brownie lurking on the buffet table. In fact, why don’t you even try hanging out with the kids!?? I know they would be more than thrilled to have a grown up to play with!
I promise if you spend more time socializing than eating at the next holiday event you’ll leave the party feeling relaxed, happy, and filled with the spirit of the holidays (not bloated and guilty because you ate too much)!
Happy weekend everyone!
ps. If you noticed I cut back on blogging, I apologize. There has been a lot going on in my neck of the woods and the blog is NOT main priority. I still hope you are enjoying this little series though! xoxoPrint
