Burrito Stress

October 30th, 2012

I can’t be the only one in this world that has burrito anxiety. There are 3 main burrito places in Denver (probably more) – Chipotle, Q-Doba, & Illegal Pete’s.  And also in that order is the extent of their menu’s – Chipotle basic & Illegal Pete’s is extensive (and contains booze, I sometimes think I […]

I can’t be the only one in this world that has burrito anxiety.

There are 3 main burrito places in Denver (probably more) – Chipotle, Q-Doba, & Illegal Pete’s.  And also in that order is the extent of their menu’s – Chipotle basic & Illegal Pete’s is extensive (and contains booze, I sometimes think I need booze to get through it).

 

Scenerio:
You are still standing at the tortilla warmer, your burrito is all the way down by the salsa’s, and they are hollering at you about what salsa you want, but you don’t know that because you can’t hear them because you’re about 10′ away and it’s lunch rush hour, so it’s busy, not to mention you aren’t familiar w/ the menu, so you don’t know what kind of salsa’s they have, or which ones are hot, but you can’t just go & look, because you’re still 10 people deep in line, so you just have to randomly guess, because you don’t want to hold up the line, and chances are, you’ll guess something the picky eater you are will hate and then you’re burrito is ruined.  Seriously – anxiety.

 

I have Chipotle mastered and have no fears about it.  I used to feel this way about Q-doba, but I’ve been there enough times, that I MOSTLY can shout what I want (although sometimes I still screw it up).

 

Today, they asked if I wanted Q-doba for lunch, and without hesitation & much pre-lunch anxiety, I agreed.  THEN!!  They told me there was a change of plans & we’re going to Illegal Pete’s.  Lunch is 45 min. away, I’ve looked over their menu, and it’s large, and not very specific, can I get a burrito bowl?   or do I have to get it w/ the tortilla?  I.DON’T.KNOW.  Panic has set in.  Lord help me.

 

Maybe I should stay back & eat my Lean Cuisine…it sounds safer.

Pumpkin Patch

October 29th, 2012

Last weekend Link & I went to the pumpkin patch with our friends Liz & Peter.  I think all 4 of us loved it!  Peter was SOOO cute in his cow costume!     On a completely other note, in my baby food making venture, I decided to make Link beets w/ pears. I swear […]

Very “The Hangover”-ish.

 

On a completely other note, in my baby food making venture, I decided to make Link beets w/ pears. I swear I have been boiling the beets all day – those things are never going to get soft.  I’m sure I’ve boiled all nutritional value out of them.  Darn beets!!

Smart Boy

Link may be built like his father, look like his father, be determined like his father, and even have the same birth marks as his father, BUT he makes smart candy choices like his mother!!  I laid out the goodies the Riewestahl’s sent us this week, and he went straight for the best part.  That’s […]

Family Photo’s

October 10th, 2012

A few weeks ago I had this insane idea of taking some family pictures.   We wore coordinating outfits, packed ourselves up, and drove 50 min. to a ghost town.  It was going to be awesome.  I was wrong.       Here are the out takes (actually, ALL could be out takes).

7 Months

October 9th, 2012

Link’s 7 month pictures didn’t turn out so well. I was going to post earlier, but I had great intentions of retaking them, but I don’t see that in my near future.  A gloomy day made for poor lighting plus my subject wouldn’t sit still for a good shot (hence some are blurry).   He’s […]

He’s FINALLY cutting a tooth.  I know I’ve been saying & thinking this for the last 3.5 months, but I’m pretty sure it’s for real this time.  He has a bump, visible & you can feel it.

 

Link remains “adventurous”, happy, and determined.  He’s learned to climb over things (like stacked up couch cushions) and is trying to climb anything he pulls himself up on.  Still doesn’t crawl on all 4’s, but is a quick army crawler.
