This week has been a bit eventful, including the brief period of time when I was unable to work on the blog. That was quite torturous. However, in better news, Donovan and I did manage to have some fun. The two adventures that stuck out to me was our lovely dinner from Tijuana Flats on Monday and the Dog Walk on Saturday.
On Monday as I was scrolling through our Instagram feed I came across a sponsors post: Tijuana Flats, $3.99 Burritos, Monday only. I immediately took a screenshot and sent it to Donovan, who quickly replied, “I know what I’m having for dinner.” This was really a surprise. I’ve mentioned that he can live on tacos, well that same goes for burritos. Since the burritos were at such a discounted price, we decided to grab a burrito dinner for the whole family.
I’ve only been Tijuana Flats once or twice- Donovan introduced the restaurant to me a couple months into our relationship- even still most the time we just grabbed a to go order and ate somewhere else. We did the same on Monday, but we had to wait for our order to be made. While waiting, I realized that Tijuana Flats has its own special environment.
The walls are painted purple and red with lots of graffiti style artwork. One wall has a picture collage made up of pictures featuring celebrities that have eaten there. Another wall holds the “Hot Bar.” The “Hot Bar” has at least fourteen different hot sauces for food lovers to add to their burrito. Donovan and I’s favorite sauce has the sassy name, “Slap My Sweet Ass and Call Me Sally.” Yes, that is actually the name. More than just the name, we love that sauce adds a little extra flavor without torching your tongue. Overall, it was a lot of fun. We brought cheap and delicious burritos to the whole family.
The Dog Walk
On Saturday evening, Donovan and i were just laying around- being lazy. Rather than continuing to do that, we thought i would be fun to take his dogs to park for a walk on the trails. This was a bit more challenging than we had suspected.
Donovan has two dogs: Rosco and Chloe. Rosco is and 18 month old, Staffordshire mix and Chloe is a German Shepherd and Chow Chow mix . Both dog are pretty large, and when they heard the leashes come out the went crazy, the good crazy, but still crazy. Its pretty adorable how a dog can know exactly what a leash means, and become extremely excited to go for a walk, but all that excitement makes it nearly impossible to put the leash on. anyway, it took a good ten minutes to get both leashes on and both dogs into the car. Luckily the ride to the park is a short one because Chloe doesn’t like the car very much. It gives her a bit of anxiety, luckily though, she very well-behaved and didn’t make too much of a fuss. Rosco, was the opposite, he was born for car rides.
The best part of the whole was when we arrived at the park. The dogs were so happy- constantly pulling against the leash want to go father, faster, and then abruptly stopping to pee on every tree. It was endearing. The walk was pretty short and soon we were packing the dogs back into the car and heading home. Once home, we- humans and dogs- took a nap.
