Chipotle, Chobani + Chilled Mango

by Holly on July 24, 2009

in eating out,lunch

Nothing like the three C’s to get you through the last day of the work week :).

Unfortunately, breakfast went unphotographed this morning for two reasons: (1) I was uber-late and ran out the door, very similarly to the way I bolted out of our living room growing up when my sisters forced me to watch E.T. (my least favorite movie ever), and (2) it wasn’t that pretty – simply a bowl of Banana Nut Cheerios + skim milk alongside a pack of Mrs. May’s Cran-Blueberry Crunch.

Lunch was a whole lot better, thanks to Senor Chipotle

1 scoop rice
fajita veggies
black beans
mild salsa
lotsa guacamole

A couple exciting things actually happened on this funny lil’ Friday – first, I got a job offer!  However, I have another interview for a job on Monday and am waiting to hear back on another job.  Sooo…I haven’t made up my mind yet, but after searching for a full-time, permanent job for more than a year, it finally happened!  Hallelujah, for reals.

Not to get too deep here, but let’s just say I have been working my tail off the past year to try and find a job since returning back from Thailand.  It’s been frustrating, confusing, annoying, hopeful, joyful, angry and a test of my patience the whole time – it just goes to show perseverance does pay off my friends.  Yay!

The other exciting thing?  I won a giveaway – thanks to Ms. Erin from I Walk in this World!  Both things are definitely a good way to start off the freakin’ weekend.  However, so is this…


Peach Chobs + Zoe's Honey Almond granol

And this…

I was gettin’ my Snackface on today :).

A special Friday happy birthday shout-out to Traci, a fabulous Healthy Everythingtarian reader, who has a big birthday this weekend!  Also, head on over to Eating for England and wish Angharad good luck on her 10k race tomorrow!

What are your plans for the weekend?  I’ve gots a 13-mile marathon training run in the morning with my sister, grabbing lunch with Angharad then off to a wedding tomorrow night.  Sunday is more wedding shenanigans with a wedding shower, then I am heading off to Wisconsin for another job interview on Monday.  It’s gonna be a busy one!

Woowoo for the weekend!

Congrats girl! Sounds like you deserve this. I’ve said it before, but I LOVE you attitude! It’s contagious! Have a good’n :)

Alison July 24, 2009 at 6:39 pm

Congrats on the job offer! I didn’t realize you were in Thailand just a year ago. Good luck with 13 tomorrow.

There’s a new Chipotle in my town, every time I drive by I think of you! Can’t wait to stop in there some day for a meal. Soon! Must be soon!

Angharad July 24, 2009 at 7:26 pm

Congrats again on the job offer! So excited for you and can’t wait to chat it out tomorrahh.

Your weekend plans sound delightful….but then I’m biased cos I’m involved in them! HA.
Mine are similar to yours in that I’m running tomorrow morning, and then eating lunch with you! But no wedding shenanigans.

Maybe some beach time, hopefully some canoe/fish/bike time with the boy sunday…

I just carbo-loaded (bit OTT for a 10K!) and now I’m going to take my food baby on a walk around the block!

See you tomoz! x

Matt July 24, 2009 at 8:39 pm

Good luck on the 13! Make me proud!

My weekend will be pretty low key. I have 20 miles on Sunday so my body will be shot for the rest of the day. Tomorrow I just plan on chilling and doing some homework I have to do. I had a long week!

Man, I have never been to Chipotle but it looks great. They dont have them out here in the Tn. Sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead of you. Have a great time :)

You lucky girl, it seems like you’ve got an endless amount of Mrs. May’s crunchy thingies!

Weekend plans.. let’s see.. Yesterday I started packing my place, thrifting for things for my apt, celebrated a birthday. For the rest of the weekend I’ll be partying with some friends celebrating their birthdays and their opening of a gallery. Get some yoga in there. And one of my best friends is visiting – I don’t get to see her much so I’m really happy about this. then some more packing!

I wish I went to more weddings.. well I don’t really get invited, but I can always crash one ;) Have a fun weekend girl! And good luck on your interviewww!!

Whit July 25, 2009 at 10:30 am

Yay on the job offer! congrats!

lilveggiepatch July 25, 2009 at 10:34 am

I’ve only had Chipotle once, but that’s the same thing I had, too!

Sounds like you have a busy (but fun!) weekend! I’m going to be working for most of it, but I have Sunday night free for something fun.

insideiamdancing July 25, 2009 at 2:08 pm

HUGE congrats on the job offer! I know how stressful it is to be job hunring so am really happy for you :D

I’d be leaving the room with you if ET came on. Such a creepy movie!

Have fun with Angharad! My weekend is half over- today was shopping for my new apartment and tomorrow is painting…or watching my dad paint ;)

Jessica July 25, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Wooo, busy weekend ahead! Good luck with the run, and enjoy!! :)

Who knows what else is in store for me, but I think last night was this weekend’s major event (house-party w/ 300+ people….hectic) !!

Oh, and tofurkey is amazeeee. I’ve actually been a vegetarian my whole life so i’m guessing it tastes pretty similar but who really knows!! It is delicious though, i’d recommend the hickory smoked flav! SALTY & DIVINE!

Your chipotle bowl looks delicious too. I always gotta add their corn to mine!! Ahh, love it!

leianna July 25, 2009 at 3:37 pm

Congrats on the job offer…..still in Minneapolis?
Chipolte is my fave as well and it doesn’t help that there is one right across from my apartment!

janetha July 26, 2009 at 2:52 am

loving the alliteration going on with your eats! god that guac shot is amazing, i need to get to chipotle sooner rather than later. hooray on the job situation! sounds like you have some good things happening. good luck at the interview!

Faith July 26, 2009 at 1:47 pm
