A Baby Sized Burrito

Happy Sunday loves! How has your weekend been so far? My Saturday was a little lazy but I needed it to be honest.


I had every intention of waking up and heading out for my run a little after 6:30. And at 7:40 I was out the door! After a few late nights earlier this week, I needed to be a little lazy in bed and it was worth it. When I started my run, I still wasn’t feeling it but got in my groove and did 7 miles at a 9:55 average pace. Only 1 mile was over 10 minutes which I was happy to see. I’m slowly working on getting all of my long runs under 10 minute paces.

I showered and enjoyed my tea on the couch while reading “The Little Paris Bookshop”. It started off strong but I lost a little bit of interest around the half point. Luckily it picked back up though and I’m interested to see how it ends.


Alex and I started to get hungry and decided to get something for lunch. We weren’t feeling any of our usual options so we decided to try a Mexican spot near our apartment for the second time. The burrito was huge and about the size of a small baby! I got mine with brown rice, black beans, barbacoa, lettuce, sour cream, cheese and jalepenos. The food was good but both mine and Alex’s burritos started falling apart shortly after we started eating.

After lunch, Alex did some school work and I continued to read. The weather started to get grey and dreary so I took a little power nap on the couch. Alex finished his homework and watched some college football. Honestly, I have no idea who was playing since I was too busy reading.


When it was time for dinner, I prepped potatoes and broccoli to roast in the oven. While those were cooking, Alex turned on Live PD to have in the background as he cooked burgers. Live PD is basically Cops but in real time…not the best show ever but it sucks you in! Dinner was delicious! I haven’t had a burger in so long so it was extra tasty. If you’re a cheeseburger fan try white American cheese, total game changer in my opinion.

Like the party animal I am, I spent the rest of my Saturday on the couch hanging out with Alex and reading so I could finish the book. I can confidently say that I wasn’t a huge fan. It started out by grabbing my attention but once I got halfway through it just kinda got boring to me. I wouldn’t say this is a must read in my opinion. After I finished reading, I headed to bed.

Question of the day: What’s your go to order at a Mexican restaurant?

  1. That sounds like such a lovely day! What is barbacoa? I’ve never heard of it.
    I love Mexican food because as long as I leave out the cheese I can eat pretty well everything:)


      1. Oh thanks for teaching me something new today:). I don’t know if it’s the Mexican cuisine or just the lime and cilantro I love:)


    1. I’m not a guacamole person but I love avocados. Odd right? When I lived at my college, my apartment was within walking distance to a delicious Mexican place but now there’s nothing good nearby. You should totally make tacos tomorrow!


  2. We had burritos last night! AND, they were also the size of a small baby! Haha. Ben always goes with just rice, beans, and potatoes, and a hot salsa on top. I love a breakfast burrito with potatoes, eggs, black beans, and cheese with the same salsa. SO GOOD!
    And sometimes you just need those extra few minutes in bed. It makes a difference!
