Hummus and Quackers

Hiiiiiii ๐Ÿ˜€ How are ya?? Iโ€™m bueno- last night was a blasty ๐Ÿ˜‰


There was hummus:


and quackers:


More on that in a sec ๐Ÿ˜€

For dinner, we celebrated my cousinโ€™s birthday at Urban Flats– one of our favorites.

Party people in da house:


We started with the flatbread and hummus:


(Pesto, red pepper hummus, tapenade, macadamia nut hummus)

and the lump crabcakes:

crap cake

The chili-ginger sauce and pineapple salsa were an AMAZING compliment to the crab. Glorious.



(Vodka, club soda, splash of cranberry and a lime)


The best maple-dijon glazed cedar-planked salmon that my face has ever seen (I ordered this last time we were at Urban Flats)


And of course, there was cake:


I had a piece and it was beautiful ๐Ÿ˜€

Next, a group of us stopped by my cousinโ€™s friendโ€™s houseโ€ฆ and they have a pet duck

duck (2)

(The duck eats in its storage bin container home, and they let him walk around the house, too)

We also went to a club in downtown Orlando.

I drank water the whole time and danced my booty off. I just wanted to dance ๐Ÿ™‚

This morning, the pilot is eating chorizo, eggs, tortillas and homemade horchata, and I think Iโ€™m going to munch a banana and some oats.

Shopping + yoga today!

Enjoy your Saturday and Iโ€™ll see ya tonight <3



Todayโ€™s workout jam: โ€œKiss nโ€™ Tellโ€ Ke$ha

    hilarious story…my hubby had a pet duck for 2 weeks when he was younger…apparently she was noisy and poopy, so they took her to a reserve for birds and released her there. her name was sarah (?)!

  13. Kelly Michelle on July 3, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    why are we always in Orlando on opposite weekends?! I was there last weekend (and danced my booty off in dt Orlando, and actually ate cake that looked like that- Publix?). I’m dying to meet you

  16. Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! on July 3, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    Your hubs brings out your funny side! You seem so much happier when he’s around. Funny how that can be detected just by a blog post!

    I love the little tuft of feathers on the duck’s head! I would like a duck. I wonder how my cats would feel about that L(

  17. Miranda @ MirandasJeans on July 3, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Awesome. lol who do your cousins friends think they are Joey and Chandler? lol though I think other than the poop having a pet duck would be fun.
