I was driving around last night and throughout the night I would notice a lag in pull when I accelerate in 2nd and 3rd. I was like ok maybe I will have to figure this out in the morning. I went through the drivethru at deltaco and while I was ordering a big pop goes off under my hood and all of the sudden there is steam engulfing my car. my car was still running. I turned it off and pushed my car to a parking stall but I couldnt see anything because the lot was dark. Everything was wet in my engine compartment. any ideas? Radiator? busted hose? I couldnt see any physical broken parts or hoses.

..........I would notice a lag in pull when I accelerate.......

You may have another problem in which the result was a 'blown' hose. If your engine is overheating - that will usually show up as a lag/ or sluggish acceleration and your coolant system will have a great pressure within the system until it finds a source of release..... the hose.
