FC Cincinnati’s first MLS match.

This evening was FC Cincinnati’s very first match in MLS. They were playing away at Seattle Sounders on FS1. Definitely not the easiest introduction to their new league…

I was so excited and so nervous for this match all day. And it was finally here…

And just 13 minutes into the match, FC Cincinnati had their first goal and first lead in MLS! Just 13 minutes! Leonardo Bertone made history for FC|C with a wonder strike from outside of the box

The goal was the third-fastest ever scored by an MLS expansion club. It was definitely a moment to remember. But that was pretty much the only the highlight of the match for FC|C. It all kind of went south from there. FC Cincinnati lost their first match 4-1 to Seattle Sounders.

Welcome to MLS. 😀⚽️❤️

Mardi Gras at Overlook Lodge.

After brunch at Revolution Rotisserie, we walked over to Overlook Lodge

Overlook was hosting a Madri Gras party this afternoon…

We met our friends Chris and Tayler at Overlook for the festivities…

Overlook was mixing up some hurricanes…

Out on their back patio, they were having a big crawfish boil

I tried my best to eat as many crawfish as I could. They’re tricky little buggers. And there was also a giant king cake which was much easier to eat…

Somehow, the baby from the king cake was already in the pine tree on our table when we got to Overlook. It took us a while to notice him but there he was, just hanging out…

It was such a fun afternoon celebrating Madri Gras at Overlook in Pleasant Ridge!
😀🎊❤️

Brunch at Revolution Rotisserie.

After getting Genifer her very first iPhone, we stopped at Revolution Rotisserie in Pleasant Ridge for brunch…

Genifer had one of their cocktails. I don’t recall which drink this was…

And I had a housemade spicy Bloody Mary…

We started brunch by sharing some delicious deviled eggs with bacon, capers, scallions, arugula, and paprika…

Oh man, I love deviled eggs…

Genifer had the Alex The Great salad with cucumber, tomato, red onion, feta, tzatziki and topped with Revolution’s rotisserie chicken…

I had their Rotisserie Chicken & Waffles with Amish, antibiotic-free bird served with  Belgian waffles and spicy syrup…

Wow. What a great meal! It was a terrific lunch. We can’t wait to come back for some more amazing Revolution Rotisserie chicken! YUM! 😀🇺🇸🐔❤️

69,000 Check-ins.

This afternoon I tallied my 69,000th check-in on Swarm

Obviously, I still really love my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

Genifer got a new phone today.

This morning we got up and went over to the Sprint store at Rookwood Exchange in Norwood. She was more than overdue for an update…

And she decided to move from her Samsung Galaxy S-whatever to her very first iPhone, the new iPhone Xs Max…

Now she’s all super fancy-fancy. 😀📱❤️
