I. My weekend technically started on Thursday because I was on research week – so I had to go into the hospital for meetings on Monday and Tuesday, and I had a diabetes conference on Wednesday, but the remainder of the week I just got to work from home. I took a break from doing my literature review for a few hours (okay, a whole afternoon) on Thursday to go shopping at Square One, and came out with my hands full! It was my first time going to LOFT and I think I’m obsessed. They have the best petites section ever!
The highlight of the shopping trip was actually our lunch though: Chipotle!!! I’m so excited to have one only 30 minutes away from my house now. I got my usual order of a burrito bowl with brown rice, double black beans, fajita veggies, mild salsa, lettuce, and extra guacamole. So. darn. good.
II. On Saturday I escaped my lovely but boring town to hit up the big city (Toronto, not NYC sadly) to see some friends.
We strolled down Bloor Street while catching up and swapping internship stories, stopped for a latte at the Whole Foods Cafe, and then made our way to Asahi Sushi for dinner.
We picked it out at the last minute, and I’ve got to say, I’m pretty impressed with our restaurant selecting skills because this place was awesome! Any place that stuffs huge chunks of avocado in their rolls is a winner in my books. And the rolls themselves were a very generous portion too – just the two rolls and seaweed salad left me stuffed!
III. I had to break my Sunday tradition of yoga and Kindfood this week, but I did make it out to Tamp Coffee Co for an almond milk latte and life chats with my friend Allyson. Cozy cushioned seating, chill indie tunes, and good coffee – is there any better place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon?
Do you spend a long time researching restaurants before picking one, or do you just select them on a whim?
Favourite way to spend your Sunday?
