With the second place under her belt, Lacey’s happy to finally get some time to enjoy herself over the holidays!

Every Dancing With The Stars competitor can agree that dancing on the show is no easy task — it’s exhausting! But professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer wouldn’t have it any other way. “I always love it and [my partner] Kyle Massey is just a doll,” Lacey tells now that the season is over. “He made this season extra awesome!”

This season has taught Lacey “patience and confidence in myself.” She tells us, “I [was] so thankful to be here and loved every minute of it.”

But now that DWTS is finally over, Lacey plans on finally relaxing and enjoying the holiday season! “Hopefully massages everyday,” Lacey says of her tentative plans. “But playing with my puppies, eating a ton and family time” are all definites. “I literally don’t have a wish other than spending time with family. I don’t get a chance to see them and it’s always amazing.”

Lacey also has plans to “work on music and my clothing line, and try to get involved in an animal charity.”

And now that it’s the holiday season, Lacey couldn’t be more thankful for everything that she’s been blessed with. “I’m so grateful to have a job I love dearly,” she gushes. “I have a wonderful family, great friends and just enjoy every day I have!”

This holiday season, Lacey is most excited to chow down on some good grub. “Duh, food [is my favorite part of the holidays],” Lacey laughs. “Who can disagree with that?!”

Lacey’s even looking forward to her family’s odd family tradition, “the penny game.” She tells us, “It’s hard to explain, but my family is REALLY into it.”
