Deskey Water Games.

We’re celebrating hydration this month at Deskey. This afternoon we paused to play some water games out in our parking lot…

We have some fun. 💧😀💦

It’s a sign.

I was walking on my way to get my haircut this afternoon, and I couldn’t help but notice the Bay Horse Cafe sign has returned above Main Street…

And on the inside, it looked like they had made a lot of progress and were getting really close to opening up. Taken with Instagram. 😀🐴🍺

Two years ago today…

Two years ago today, we went and looked at wedding rings for the very first time…

Setting in motion the smartest thing I’ve ever done in my life: asking Genifer to marry me. Thanks for remembering, Timehop! Taken with Instagram. 😀💍❤️

Deskey+Elementz.

We are working on a visual identity for a client that is all about the community of Cincinnati. We are partnering with Elementz, Cincinnati’s Hip Hop youth center. It’s essentially an urban arts center where inner city kids can gather and create anything from hip-hop to street dance, spoken word poetry to street art, photography and visual arts. We’re teaming up with four Elementz students for inspirational design to ensure our identity is representative of the community. The students were asked to use their creative platform of choice to develop a concept that represents their community.

This afternoon we got to meet with the students and tour Elementz…

Those are some very super talented kids. And Elementz space is pretty amazing. It’ll be great to work with this group and see what we can come up with together. 😀

Downtown details.

There were some really dark and threatening looking clouds hanging over downtown Cincinnati. It looked like it was right on the verge of pouring down rain at any second all day today. But thankfully somehow, it didn’t rain a drop all day. 😀☁️

Strauss Troy Market.

I keep forgetting about the Strauss Troy Market on Tuesdays at Fountain Square

I’ll have to try to remember to check it out for lunch next Tuesday. 🙂

Bunbury x 21C.

Despite not being big fans of any bands at this year’s Bunbury Music Festival, we bought tickets for the Sunday lineup featuring Thirty Seconds to Mars, The 1975 and Muse among others. We also had a gift card to 21C Museum Hotel downtown on Walnut Street that my work gave us as a wedding present. If you combine the Bunbury and staying downtown at 21C that sounds like a pretty awesome Sunday.

Genifer’s mom, Geri was kind enough to watch Oscar for the evening as well as drop us off at 21C downtown…

Our room was all the way up on the tenth floor…

Drumroll…

It was such an incredible room that really wasn’t all that much smaller than our old apartment. We sat around for a bit and enjoyed our new digs as watched some of the Reds game in our plush, swanky, new home for the night…

And then we went to get a couple of burgers at BRU…

Before we walked down to Sawyer Point to check out Bunbury…

Surprisingly, this is the only photo my camera strap made it into…

We checked out the view from the top of this Miller Lite bar…

Holy geez was that ladder to the roof rickety…

I ended up using four different cameras at Bunbury. I used the camera on my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and my Samsung Galaxy S. But mostly I used my old point & shoot Canon SX280 to take the majority of photos because of its’ toy camera effect with the dark cornervignetting, blurriness and other distortions like in the photos above and below…

I also took some photos with my Polaroid CUBE…

I also took this video with my CUBE of people just walking passed us as we were people watching while Thirty Seconds to Mars was playing…

Bunbury was such a good time! So much fun. So much great music. We headed home…

And we ordered some Domino’s pizza because Domino’s doesn’t deliver to Northside…

😍❤️

It was kind of weird waking up in downtown Cincinnati again. It definitely had a very distinct deja vu feeling to it…

Especially since you could actually see our old apartment building two blocks away…

I’m going to have to try to source these pillows…

And then Geri and Oscar picked us up, and took us home. And that was that. 🙂

Thank you to Geri for watching Oscar and providing our ground transportation and thank you to Deskey for the wonderful 21C gift card. It made an amazing evening unforgettable on a pretty epic scale! 😀❤️🎼💤

Happy National Doughnut Day!

Today was National Doughnut Day! And miraculously, two big boxes of delicious Holtman’s Donuts showed up in our office this morning!

And there was also a sizeable assortment of doughnuts from Marcella’s

Why can’t every day be National Doughnut Day? 😁 🍩 😍 ❤️

Taco Tuesday.

It was Taco Tuesday again at Silverglades Deli on Eighth Street…

I love tacos. I’ve really been digging on the hard-shell tacos lately. 😀 🌮 🌮 🌮 ❤️

Taste of Cincinnati 2017.

This afternoon we went drove downtown to check out Taste of Cincinnati 2017…

unnamed

We got to park for free in Deskey’s parking lot on Eighth Street and just walk a couple blocks down to Fifth Street so that made things extraordinarily easy. Not as easy as when we used to live downtown, but still pretty dang easy. To accommodate that silly Streetcar Cincinnati Bell Connector, this year’s Taste of Cincinnati started at Main Street and continued east down Fifth Street to Sentinel Street ending with Taste of Findlay Market and Fodd Truck Alley. Let’s get to Tasting…

We almost started our Taste with Northside’s Tickle Pickle but they’re right around the corner from our house. We just vowed to get their delicious burgers next week…

We tried the Taste of Cincinnati signature cocktail in a souvenir glass…

Tasty and refreshing. Southwest now flies to CVG! Southwest had a booth at Taste and had people silk-screening bags on demand. We had to get a Taste of Cincinnati bag…

And they were giving away packets of airline peanuts and pretzels. Nice touch! 🙂

Genifer’s all set now with her signature cocktail and her Official Taste of Cincinnati bag…

Across the way, LL Bean had this bootmobile…

More than 550,000 people visited this year’s Taste of Cincinnati over the 3-day festival. Gorgeous weather all weekend undoubtedly played a part bringing people out…

Nathan’s had their famous mustard belt on hand…

We had some amazing jerk chicken and rice from Island Frydays…

Stella Artois had a cool retro airstream at Taste…

We had an incredible empanada in the Taste of Findlay Market. But it was so delicious, I forgot to take a photo of it…

It’s 5 am somewhere…

These little stacking stools by Gateway Fountain would be awesome on our patio…

Food Truck Alley was without a doubt the busiest area at Taste while we were there…

We got a delicious Bee Sting from C’est Cheese…

And we got to see our friend Emily!

We could have spent the rest of the afternoon just eating our way through Food Truck Alley with Red Sesame, Just Jerks, Alabama Fish Bar and Texas Joe just to name a few. But it was so crowded in Food Truck Alley that it was hard to move. So we made our way out and got some Thai Taste Crab Rangoons because I love Crab Rangoons…

This kid’s contraption was genius…

The Bud Bar was back at Taste…

We climbed up top to take in the view from the roof…

In this photo, there are not one but TWO monkey-leash-backpacks…

One of the best parts of our Taste were the VIP passes from CincinnatiUSA.com which gave us access to the VIP area. It was a lifesaver for a place to sit in the shade, catch your breath and enjoy a complimentary bottle of ice cold water…

It was another amazing Taste of Cincinnati. The only problem is you get full way too fast. We can’t wait to see you again next year Taste of Cincinnati.  🙂

Oh! And I almost forgot… We got these amazing refrigerator magnets from Cincy Shirts booth at Taste as well: #TeamFiona and a Cincinnati 3-Way

Celebrate the 513! 🙂

Who has it better than us?

We finally upgraded to Adobe Creative Cloud at work. And after updating and syncing all my devices, I stopped to take a photo of my set-up at work…

The only thing that wasn’t pictured that’s normally on my desk as well was my Samsung Galaxy Note 5. And I just found out today that work is going start paying for my monthly Metro bus passes!

Who has it better than us? 🙂

#TBT Pause for paws.

Always remembering the good times with the bud dog. 🙂

Reds baseball game #4.

Tonight, our Reds were taking on the Cleveland Indians in the second game of this year’s Ohio Cup. It was a pretty night so we went to our fourth Reds game of this baseball season…

Amir Garrett was pitching for the Reds…

He took a line drive off his non-pitching hand in the first

Like I said, it was a really pretty evening…

ARIMSMENDY ALCANTARA!

Eugenio Suarez hit a pinch-hit three-run homer to tie the game at seven

BARGE!

The Reds ended losing the game 8-7. :/

But it sure was great to be back at the ball park again. 🙂

Holtman’s donuts.

When a box of Holtman’s donuts magically appeared at work in the morning, it quickly became one of the best Fridays ever…

I love Holtman’s donuts. Taken with Instagram❤️ 🍩 😁

It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time for lunch today!

I sure do love me some chili cheese coneys. 🙂
