Sunflowers.

There are sunflowers on the next street over from us that reach up into the sky…

They are so tall. 😀🌻❤️

I just can’t get enough of this view from work. I could stand here all day and watch the traffic on the highways and the trains with the Ohio River and Cincinnati hills in the background. Especially when the sky and clouds are this pretty…

It’s my moment of Zen when I’m at work just to stand here for a bit and watch the world go by. Taken with Instagram. 😀🏙️❤️

We ate this.

Genifer made chicken bacon ranch pizza for dinner tonight…

And it was delicious! She finds the best stuff to make for dinner. 😀🐔🥓👨‍🌾🍕❤️

It’s finally coming back!

Jersey Boys, the best Broadway show I’ve ever seen, is finally coming back to Cincinnati! We’ve been waiting for the show to make its return to Aronoff Center ever since we first saw the it all the way back in 2012. And then this morning, this showed up in my email inbox…

And we bought pre-sale tickets on the spot! We’re sooo excited! We can’t wait for the middle of October! 😀🎶😍❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

If you guessed Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken again then you are correct…

It’s just sooo good. 😀🥡❤️

It happened again.

It’s kind of becoming the norm now. I had another 3000+ point week on my Swarm

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

Good evening from Northside.

Aster on Fourth.

After the Reds game, we walked up to check out Aster on Fourth for the first time to have a drink while we waited for the Uber prices to stop their surging…

We followed the arrows and we rode the elevator up…

Up to Aster Social Sippery on the third floor…

Look at those gorgeous floor to ceiling windows…

Genifer had the Lost in the Woods on the right and I had the Kavacon on the left…

Aster has an incredible patio that overlooks Fourth Street…

Aster is a really chill place to stop for a drink. 😀🥃❤️

Take me out to the ballgame.

This afternoon we went to the Sunday Reds game against the Colorado Rockies, or as we like to call it, baseball church. It was our second Reds game of the season after we were rained out on the second game of the season

We stopped to look at our Reds All-Star Legacy brick

Next time we come down to a Reds game, we’re going to have to bring a little scrubber and some water to clean our brick. But it was great to be back with our friends at Great American Ball Park…

It sure was a beautiful day for baseball…

Yasiel Puig…

He’s really quickly become one of my very favorite Reds. After his at-bat, we moved down to the gap…

And then down to the right-field line…

Someone had already lost one of the stickers from their Joey Votto Fathead…

And we moved out underneath the PNC Power Stacks in center field…

Yasiel Puig…

And back up to the gap…

And this one belongs to the Reds!

It was great to be back at the ballpark. 😀⚾️❤️

 

UPDATE: I was really bummed to find out this morning that @Reds traded away Yaisel Puig. I was hoping that he would be in Cincinnati for many, many seasons. It’s the first time a quite a while that I actually feel sad about a Reds player leaving Cincinnati after being traded. I’ll definitely miss Puig’s larger than life personality and his passion for the game. He made baseball in Cincinnati really fun again. ⚾️😥💪💯

UPDATE: Don’t even get me started on the Reds trading Scooter Gennett to the Giants for a player to be named later. 😭 Taken with Instagram.

Fretboard Brewing Company.

This afternoon we drove out to Blue Ash to check out Fretboard Brewing Company

It’s a pretty cool space. It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be…

They had a lot of interesting sounding beers on tap…

But we were drawn out to Fretboard to try their Chase the Devil Double Imperial Stout with Habanero, coffee, and chocolate…

And it was pretty dang awesome. It had just the right amount of heat. Also, inside of Fretboard is Smoked Out Cincy BBQ

We ordered a whole bunch of BBQ…

And it was really awesome too. My favorite thing was the Cajun Chicken Rolls. We also shared Fretboard’s Mimosa Fruit Beer

And their Island Style Tropical Ale

And those beers were really good too!

Fretboard is yet another really great Cincinnati brewery. We’ll definitely have to make another trip out to Blue Ash really soon. 😀🍺❤️
