Laundry and Wine

in All Posts

I poured myself a glass of Merlot while folding laundry this afternoon.


It was awesome. :)  And I ate two of these scrumptious homemade muffins that Meghann gave me at lunch:


I worked until 8:30 and then the Husband took me to Chipotle for dinner.  :)  I tried the Burrito Bowl this time.  I had rice, beans, peppers, pico, and corn salsa.  This definitely will make two meals!


Sorry to be so short, but it’s time to hit the hay!  I’m going to an out-of-town wedding tomorrow night.  Can’t wait to blog all the lovely wedding details.


PS – I’m hosting this week’s Blogger Secret Ingredient contest, and I chose Pancake Mix as the BSI.  Check out this post for the rules, and I’ll pick the winning recipe on Sunday.

    I’m attempting to hang up all my laundry too. Trying to not leave it in the basket all weekend.

    Sounds like a great night 🙂 I can’t wait to hear about the wedding and see the eats!

    That burrito bowl looks awesome. My husband and I just have Mexican last night to celebrate our anniversary. Yours looks better than what we ate!

    I HATE folding laundry. I can’t complain because my boyfriend does all the laundry (and he has to walk to the laundry mat) but it’s my job to put it away. Wine might help…
    I’m excited to see wedding photos. Do all your friends at the wedding know about your blog? Do you explain to people before taking photos in public?

      it’s definitely one of those wedding where i know the bride and about 6 other people. i usually dont explain my blog unless someone asks me why im taking pictures of my food. and then i typically say “i have a healthy living website and i document how i eat” most people are like “oh, cool.” and that’s it. other people say “isnt it annoying to take pictures of everything you eat?” and i reply, “it’s second nature to me now, like taking out silverware.”

      i think blogs are common enough now that people don’t think its weird. 🙂 hopefully…

      I wish I’d asked about a meetup in jacksonville earlier! I’m sure you’ll have your hands full with the wedding all day. Have a great time!

      • caitlin October 17, 2009, 7:32 am

        oh i definitely would’ve asked, but im going to be super busy. its kind of a mini reunion of some family friends + my mom, so i won’t have any free time. next time, though!!!

  • Ellen October 17, 2009, 4:18 am

    Everyone needs a little glass of wine every now and then 🙂
    I want muffins now. Looks yummy!
    We don’t have a burrito place in NZ, which sucks because I keep reading about how awesome they are on all the food blogs lol

    I’ve always like the burrito bowls at chipoltle!

    There is always good reason to enjoy a glass of wine 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 17, 2009, 8:48 am

    Ah, I’m so jealous! We don’t have Chipotle here, I’d have to drive for two hours. I’ve always wanted to try it 🙂

    Have fun today, be beautiful!

    Corn salsa from Chipotle rocks my world!! And I always get the bowl, it is easily 2 meals for the price of one.
