Another shameless plug

We love Chipotle! Chipotle is a fast Mexican food type place around here that has amazing, HUGE burritos. When Owen was born, 8 weeks early at only 4 pounds, Greg thought he was about the size of a Chipotle burrito and therefore nicknamed Owen "Chipotle" and "Little Burrito." Greg even wanted to put a burrito in Owen's incubator for pictures so we could show people how small he really was. However, food wasn't allowed in the incubators, so that never worked out.

Recently, I went online to try to find a Chipotle shirt for Greg because he loves Chipotle, and because of Owen's nickname. The shirt I was interested in was sold out, so I started to call around to local restaurants to see if I could track one down. On my second call, I connected with Phil, a manager of a nearby Chipotle. He didn't have the shirt I was looking for, and he asked me if there was a story behind why I was looking for it. I explained the whole story about Owen, which Phil thought was great, so he told me he'd do some checking around and get back to me in a few weeks.

Two weeks later, Phil told me he'd found my shirt and that I could come and pick it up! When I arrived at his Chipotle, I was presented with a goodie bag of items, all "on the house," which included the shirt I was looking for for Greg, 2 other shirts, a shirt for Owen (pics below) and many cards for free burritos and chips & guacamole. Phil even sent me home with supper for the family that night. Incredible!!!

We, who already loved Chipotle, are now madly in love!! Check them out!

Isn't Chipotle wonderful?! "Runty" Owen is getting so big. :) He's like the size of a Burrito Bol now!
