Weekend Recap & Happy Birthday Sis/Cousin

Hola!! Happy late Easter/Passover or whatever you celebrated!!! I missed you all this weekend, but you know I was still stalking your blogs! ;). So instead of blabbering lets recap, because there is a lot!!!

Friday

Friday I was off work!! I had a dance lesson and then I went to lunch with my Mama. I danced again at night, then went to karaoke after dance with my friend Lauren. I love karaoke, do you??

Eats…

After a morning elliptical sesh, I was craving cereal!! Enter Kashi Go lean Crunch and almond milk!! Hit the spot!

For lunch we went to the little cafe in Saks Fifth Avenue!! It’s one of my favorite lunch spots in Beverly Hills!

They start by serving you these warm flat breaks with a olive spread. SO GOOD!

I went with a salad…

So delicious!! Hungry Dancer health tip: Always order dressing on the side to avoid tons of excess calories!! I like to do the dip and eat. Dip the fork in the dressing then go for the salad! This saves you tons of extra fat and calories!

Dinner ended up being an easy peasy wrap!

La tortilla factory tortilla, goat cheese, romaine, meatless meatballs, and salsa!! Hit-the-spot!

Saturday

If you didn’t already know, I work EVERY saturday! No joke. So of course it was a work day. Let’s just skip the day and move on to night time!! I stopped by my fav store Trader Joe’s after work for some essentials and ended up with this creation for dinner.

Gnocchi with feta and brussels sprouts!! My best friend Jamie came over so I cooked this for her two! She gave it two thumbs up!!

We followed dinner with a dip in the HOT TUB then a trip to get yogurt!!

YOGURT LAND!! I might have went a little wild on the yogurt!! Look at all those toppings!!

I always think of one of my favorite bloggers Janae, because she LOVES Yogurtland!

Sunday

We don’t really celebrate easter in the Hungry Dancer household but we did have a celebration because it was my cousin Sara’s 23rd birthday!!!

Her real birthday is actually today, Monday the 25th!! Happy birthday Cousin!!!

To celebrate, we obviously had TONS of food!! Look at these snacks!!

Cheese and crackers, hummus and dippers, sushi!!

Chips and guac, crackers and crab salad, Ruffles and sour cream and onion dip!! Let’s just say I was a full dancer yesterday!! HAHA

For our dinner it was hotdog and hamburger style! My cousin had requested Chicago Style hot dogs, and since I am NOT a fan of hot dogs, I went with a turkey burger!

Hungry Dancer tip #2: If you have a fluffy bun, scoop out the inside of the bread to save some calories! I had a turkey burger with lettuce, tomato, and onion! Don’t fret I added more….

Guacamole!! It was perfect!!

Then it was time for Sara to blow out the candles!!

Sara has been obsessed with ice cream cake since she was a little girl, so that’s obviously what we had!!

My slice of mint chip ice cream cake! Yummerz!

Speaking of the Birthday Girl…...

Sara and I grew up like sisters. We are both only children and our moms are best friends!! We did everything together for our entire childhood!! I feel so lucky to have her in my life as a cousin, but even more as a sister! We both know that no matter what happens we will always be there for each other and have each others back! There is nothing more important in life than family.

LOVE YOU COUSIN!!!

  1. ah so weird to see your cousin.. who i feel like i know.. simply becuz ive seen her on tv.. i cnt rmber where I saw her!! i wna say Disney channel when i was younger??! anywho.. looks like a blast with SO many good eats!

  2. Such a great tip about the bun!! Never would have thought of that! We celebrated Easter this weekend with the fam! So much fun, especially the Easter egg hunt!

  3. I do the same thing with my salad, always on the side šŸ˜‰ If not the dressing comes out to way more calories than the actual salad! I love Yogurtland, it’s my favorite fro-yo place by far. Great tip about scooping out the bun, I gotta do that šŸ˜€

  4. I always think of Janae too when I see frozen yogurt pics! Yours looks delish šŸ™‚

  5. spoonfulofsugarfree

    Happppppy Easter šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

    I wish I had a friend like a sister—I do have a sister who is a best friend, though!!!

  6. Your cousin has been in so many shows and movies that I’ve seen!! Too cool.

  7. Goodluck on your dance competition! I celebrated Easter up at school this year. It’s the week before finals so I wasn’t able to make it home for the weekend. You and Sara both look absolutely gorgeous! My cousin and I are just like you two, we’re best friends and like built in sisters since we’re both the same age. Sadly we both live in different states, but when we get together it’s like nothings changed šŸ™‚

  8. Just found your blog through Healthy Diva and I love it! I will be reading šŸ™‚

  9. I love your hungry girl tips!
    All your food looks scrumptious… especially your yogurt with all the toppings!

  10. Happy birthday to your cousin, who looks oddly familiar?

    And I LOVE ice cream cake… why haven’t I had it in so long? YUM!

  11. We celebrate Easter, but definitely in the commercial Easter Egg Hunt/eat a ton of candy way (instead of with a church service). I definitely ate WAY too much sugar and I’m paying for it today – but it was totally worth it. I think I could live on chocolate malt eggs…

  12. Happy Birthday to your cousin!

  13. happy birthday (a day late) to your cousin – she has good taste in cakes! that is my favorite ice cream šŸ™‚

  14. oh that’s so nice that you two are so close šŸ™‚

    My family does celebrate Easter but we couldn’t get together with them this year. I can’t wait to have some little ones so we can do Easter Egg hunts with them! šŸ™‚

  15. I always always have ice cream cake on my birthday! I make cakes now but I was never a cake kind of girl? I think it’s slightly odd but I can also make a mean ice cream cake now although nothing beat the little crunchies they out in Baskin Robin or Carvel ice cream cake! Hope you’re having a great week!

  16. Your cousin, Sara, looks just like Sara Paxton!
