There’s leftover ice cream cake?!

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar came in to our studio office to hang out with me while I was working…

And we made it through another Monday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had pesto prosciutto tortellini and garlic bread for dinner…

And we had leftover ice cream cake for dessert…

We went outside after dinner, we saw that this big tree limb had fallen into our yard…

And these photos of Milan showed up in my Timehop today…

We was such a handsome guy.

Hello from Northside.

We were still a little tired and achy this morning from our vaccinations yesterday…

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

Later this evening, it got really overcast…

And here are a couple of Oscar photos that showed up in my Timehop today…

Back when we had grass in our backyard. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Urban Artifact + Kitchen Factory.

Good morning from Northside…

Day 20 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Good evening from Northside…

Shannon ordered us some Urban Artifact beers for Christmas. This evening we ran over to UA to pick up our order. We were really excited to see what she got us…

And there’s our order…

On our way back home, we stopped to pick up dinner from The Kitchen Factory

When we got home with our dinner, the sunset looked so pretty from our backyard…

And tben it was back to our dinner from Kitchen Factory…

Genifer ordered their Veggie Meatball Hoagie…

I ordered the Baked Chicken Pesto Hoagie…

We both ordered the pasta salad as our side. And it came in a condiment container…

It was less of a side and more of a mouthful of pasta salad. Still, it was really good. We just wished there was more of it. We also ordered a side of their Famous Vegan Mac & Cheese…

Our dinner was sooo good. The hoagies were amazing! We’ll definitely be ordering from Kitchen Factory again. We’ll have to order a couple of their pizzas sometime as well.

Genifer made some incredible seven-layer bars for dessert…

Now that our bellies are full, let’s take a look to see what Shannon got us…

Wow! Those sound like some delicious beers! We placed them under our Christmas tree. And we can’t wait to try them! Thanks, Shannon!

We’ve been watching Mindhunter on Netflix. It’s about the origins of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit in the late ’70s. It’s been a really good show so far.

And we had a really good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

The last Saturday before Christmas.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery store this morning…

Jell-O just upped the jello game with Jell-O Play…

These might have been around for a while but they’re new to me. Both panda and the train were on the shelf in the international aisle today…

Check out the old-skool Doritos packaging…

And Kroger didn’t have any special balloons today…

What the heck?! After we were done at the grocery, we headed to Biggby for coffee

Day 19 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We were pretty lazy when we got home…

I don’t know why I found this so funny…

It was just the open bag of sugar in a tupperware container but the sugar was still in the bag and I thought that was really funny. But I’m weird… so, yeah.

I got this little serving of full-cooked shrimps at the grocery and ate them for lunch. Geri found this super extra spicy cocktail sauce. It’s so good. Such horseradishy goodness…

The shrimp are just a delivery vehicle to get the spicy cocktail sauce into my mouth.

Good evening from Northside…

We made some White Russian drinks this evening…

And Oscar was just like, “Are we going to go upstairs any time soon?”

Sorry, buddy. We had another pretty good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฅƒโค๏ธ

A great start to a three-day weekend.

We both had the day off work today. I could really get used to four-day work weeks. Genifer doesn’t work on Fridays and I used my very last vacation day of 2020…

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 18 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The lead of the eCommerce group at work dropped off a Christmas gift…

It was pretty amazing that she did this. It’s very appreciated. And the roll of toilet paper is hilarious.

Later, we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch. As we were walking down Hamilton Avenue, we noticed a new hair salon has already gone into the location where Helltown Bazaar Workshop used to be…

Surprisingly, Django Western Taco just closed up shop and no longer has a presence in Northside…

And that’s a bummer. We really liked Django a lot. But whatever, it was time for lunch…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheeses with tomatoes…

I ordered my favorite chicken tender sammich…

Blue Jay is always so good. It’s nothing super fancy. It’s always just solid. We never had anything but terrific meals at Blue Jay. Afterward, we stopped at Shake It Records

It’s really hard for me to find new and interesting music that I like. I really like reggae. And I like usually music. I was thumbing through the global music vinyl. And found some interesting stuff to check out…

I’m going to check these out on iTunes or Amazon Music and then come back for the ones I like. At some point, I’d like to upgrade our turntable and get some little speakers in our living room as well…

Hi Oscar…

We took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

I had a leftover taco for a dinner snack…

Genifer made this sugar cookie mix..

I thought the cookies were pretty good but Genifer didn’t care for them. They could definitely use some icing. The dogs always go outside one last time before we go upstairs…

Tonight was the final episode of season two of The Mandalorian,..

Now that all the episodes are avialable, we could finally binge-watch the season. And it was amazing! That show is just wow. I wish we could binge watch it every single day. I wish they would make an infinite amount of Star Wars series with all sorts of storylines from around the Star Wars universe. That would be amazing.

In my Timehop today, we ate at Django when they were still in Northside…

And Oscar is a very handsome little guy…

It was a great start to our three-day weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Special deliveries!

When we woke up this morning, we found Northside got a dusting of snow…

But there wasn’t much snow on the hill at the end of our street…

Time for Lego City Advent Calendar day 15…

Genifer ordered Chipotle delivery for lunch….

Chipotle was delicious. I hadn’t had Chipotle in forever.

Both Arsenal and Leicester played at the same time this afternoon. I kept an eye on both of the matches while I was working…

And both of my teams lost. Arsenal is really in a death spiral right now.

We got a couple of special deliveries today. The first package was from my parents…

And there was a wonderful box of Christmas cookies in their package…

There were so many delicious cookies in that box. We cant wait to try them all. And now we also have presents under our tree…

Thanks, mom & dad! Our second package was from TastesOfChicago.com

And inside were two Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas…

And two huuuuge chocolate chip cookies…

Thanks, JJVE! We can’t wait to try our pizzas and those cookies look terrific!

Later, we took the dogs around the block. It was kind of misty outside this evening…

We couldn’t even see the hill across the way on the other side of the highway…

The hill was just barely visible…

Good evening from Northside…

Today is my Timehop was this photo…

It’s interesting that when I saw this photo my mind went to a completely different place when I saw animal mask than when I saw this originally. And there was this one too…

That would have been the best white elephant gift ever. To this day, I still kick myself for not buying it.

Hi Oscar. He’s so fuzzy!

We had a great Wednesday. Thank you again for the wonderful Christmas gifts.

Today was a TACO TUESDAY!

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 15 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

It was another crazy busy day at work. But we managed to get through again. And then it was good evening from Northside…

Genifer has a pastrami broiler sammich for dinner tonight…

And I had turkey tacos…

And that makes today a TACO TUESDAY! My tacos were delicious!

In my Timehop today, there were a couple of Mack in our backyard…

And this photo of Milan in the snow at Lytle Park downtown…

A couple of very handsome guys. We watched a couple more episodes of Black Spot on Netflix and called it a pretty good Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

A Monday NYPD Pizza party?!

Why are Mondays always so dreary? It seems like almost every Monday is so grey and overcast. And this Monday was no exception…

Good morning from overcast Northside…

Someone lost their soccer ball…

Time for day 14 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

It was another super busy Monday with work. But we made it through yet another Monday.

Good evening from overcast Northside…

And we had the super rare Monday night NYPD Pizza party…

We got an X-Large double pepperoni with extra cheese…

And we ordered some cheesy garlic bread…

NYPD Pizza parties are so good. And they never happen on Mondays.

And then we went upstairs to start season two of Black Spot

And we made it through another dreary Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Two out of three isn’t bad.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to Target to do some shopping…

How cute are these bears? I love a bin of adorable bears…

And there was this adorable yeti stocking

Greetings from Antarctica…

I designed the eCommerce basic images for all the holiday Swiss Miss hot cocoa gift sets

Speaking of Swiss Miss, how long has there been Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa with Lucky Charms Marshmallows? It’s the first time I’ve ever seen this sorcery…

And speaking of cocoa, I love hot chocolate. It’s become my go-to drink whenever we go out to get coffee.

When we got home, it was time for day thirteen of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We had snacks for lunch today…

We watched Arsenal lose 1-0 to Burnley…

It was the first time since December 1959 that the Gunners have lost four consecutive matches at home. They are really not doing well this season. At the same time as the Arsenal match, Michigan was playing their Big Ten opener against Penn State and our Cowboys were playing in Cincinnati against the Bengals…

Both Michigan and Dallas won their games. I guess, two out of three isn’t so bad.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, I had one of my favorite snacks, Ritz crackers and peanut butter…

We finished season one of Black Spot. It’s a very odd show. Very good, very interesting, but very odd. We’ll start on season two tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿˆโค๏ธ

Pizza with friends.

It was so nice this morning. The temperature was supposed to be in the low 60s today…

Good morning from Northside…

Day twelve of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Early this afternoon it started pouring down rain though it was hard to tell from our third-floor WyzeCam

It rained for about an hour. And then it stopped just before we went to meet our friends Mehwish and Ben at the only place we really go to anymore because of the pandemic… Taft’s Brewpourium. We met them over there to hang out, catch up,
and of course, have a beer and eat some pizza…

I forgot to take a photo of all of us. I’m so bad at remembering to take a photo when we’re hanging out with people. Or maybe just self-conscious or something. But I did remember to take a photo of our pizzas…

This was Taft’s new pizza, The Fiamma…

It’s their mozzarella with tomato sauce base topped with hot soppressata and hot honey drizzle. And it was a really delicious pizza. It turns out soppressata was less like salami and more like pepperoni. The honey on the pizza was really good. And it was hot warm, not hot spicy. It was a really terrific pie.

TRAIN!

And we saw a beautiful sunset from Taft’s…

We had so much fun hanging out with Mehwish and Ben. It was great to see them, hang out and catch up. It’s been a minute since we’ve hung out with other people.

It ended up being a pretty evening in Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

The NBA preseason started this evening with both my Mavs and Grizzlies playing their first games of the new season. We didn’t get to watch either of their games. We don’t get many of the Mavs or Grizz games on TV. But it’s terrific to know that NBA Basketball is back!

We had a pretty fun Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ
