Over the last few weeks I haven't been able to eat a lot. I mean, I can eat. I just don't usually enjoy what I'm eating. When I was pregnant with Benjamin I craved specific foods and ate a lot of "comfort foods". Plus, I ate a lot. This time around, Beta isn't satisfied with much. I'm constantly nausous and never know what's going to make me...well, you know.
There is one thing I can usually eat, though....Chipotle. I mean, it's good food. Local, sustainable, kind of expensive. Either way, a vegetarian burrito bowl is the way I go. I just love it. It takes me for.ever to finish it, which is good. The meal that keeps on giving!
If you know me well, then you know that I'm not scared to ask for something. I'm always willing to put a question out there and firmly believe that "if you don't ask, then they can't say yes!" Recently, I emailed Chipotle. I let them know that I loved their food and appreciated that they used local food. I also mentioned that I was pregnant and craved their burrito bowls. I asked if there were any coupons they could send to help a sister out.
To my surprise I got an email back pretty quickly saying that they would love to send me some "burrito cards". I sent them my address and on Tuesday I got a package from Chipotle. A package! Want to know what was inside of it?! A card saying congrats on your new baby, a Chipotle onsie and EIGHT free burrito cards! I am not kidding. I was so taken back by their kindness!!!
I will say that things like this can't be taken advantage of, or people will stop being generous. There's a time and a place to ask. If I just loved Chipotle, I would just have to limit the times I eat there or ask for gift cards for my birthday. Since I'm pregnant and eat there twice a week, I thought it was at least worth an ask. I'm so glad I did!
Just wanted to let you know that there are still good people out there and good companies. Thanks, Chipotle for taking care of me and helping satisfy my insane cravings!
