Shining Stars & BDubs.

This morning we went to the grocery store. I don’t ever really get to go the grocery all that much. It was just a pretty normal trip to the store. But look at how cute this space bear was…

Those Shining Stars came home with us. We also noticed these moonshine sausages…

I wonder wat those are like. And there were these completely plant-based sausages that I want to try once it’s time to slow down and grill again

I wonder if they’re good. Speaking of good after the grocery, we stopped at BDubs. It was some of the best BDubs that I’ve had in quite a while. Genifer ordered boneless wings and fries…

We shared some mini corn dogs. I had the crispy BBQ chicken sammich…

And I got a free snack-sized wing for my birthday through their app…

It was really good stuff. 😀🐻🐔❤️

Our New Years Eve.

Tonight, Genifer and our friend, Tayler co-hosted a little New Years Eve celebration at Chris and Tayler’s house just across Northside…

And we got to see Sabot LOL again

He’s getting so big…

It was a great little low-key celebration with some really good friends…

We hope everyone had a nice & safe New Years Eve, and we wish everyone a great start to their 2019. 😀🎊🎉❤️

Meanwhile across the river.

This morning we dropped off the rental car we that we used to drive up to Michigan…

It was a pretty nice ride. The check engine came on in our Jetta GLI the day before we were going to drive to Michigan. We didn’t feel super comfortable driving all the way up north with that hanging over our heads so we just rented a car from Budget at CVG to get us there and back…

After we dropped it off, we stopped by Crestview Hills Town Center and decided to have lunch at The Pub

We shared a Scotch Egg…

Genfier had a half chicken salad wrap and a caesar salad…

I had these delicious fish and chip sliders…

We don’t get over to Crestview Hills very often, It’s pretty nice over there, and The Pub has some really good lunch. 😀🇬🇧❤️

We saw 29!

We went on our normal dog walk this evening through Parker Woods…

The other day we started noticing that there were a bunch of Daddy Long Geg spiders on the path. We started counting about halfway through our walk and counted 13 spiders. Tonight, we started counting from the beginning and we saw 29 Daddy Long Legs…

We walked a little over a mile tonight…

It equates to seeing a spider every 200 or so feet. That’s a lot of spiders. 😀🌄🕷️❤️

Press on Monmouth.

After dropping Oscar off at his groomers in Newport for his haircut, we stopped into Press on Monmouth again for some coffee…

We ordered a couple of coffees and I got another one of their sausage biscuits to go…

We really like Press on Monmouth. 😀☕️❤️

Press on Monmouth.

After dropping off Oscar at his groomers, we stopped at Press on Monmouth over in Newport for some coffee…

We follow Press on Monmouth on Instagram and their stuff always looks so good…

It’s so cute inside…

Genifer got a latte and I got a cold brew coffee on nitro….

Genifer also got a chicken cobb salad for later. I forgot to take a photo of it. But it was huge. I got a sausage biscuit with egg and hot honey…

It was an incredible breakfast sammich that I wish I could eat every morning. I wish we could get over to Press on Monmouth more often. They have delicious stuff. 😀☕️❤️

Pause for paws.

We took Oscar to get his haircut this morning. He was getting pretty fuzzy…

We took him to Wags-n-Whiskers across the river in Newport…

And now he looks all handsome again with his Thanksgiving bandana and all…

Genifer posted this awesome before and after on her Instagram

Oscar’s so handsome. 😀🐶❤️

The Deskey holiday party.

Tonight was Deskey’s holiday party at The Frock in Covington…

After the party, we stopped at Braxton Brewing Company for a beer. It was a great night celebrating the holidays with some really great people. 🙂

Mainstrasse Goettafest.

We hopped on the Southbank Shuttle across the Roebling Bridge…

To go check out the 16th Annual MainStrasse Village “Original” Goettafest

Brought to Northern Kentucky by the early German immigrants, Goetta has always been a breakfast staple in the Greater Cincinnati area. Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money by adding pin-head oats and spices to ground meat  usually pork, or pork and beef. We’ve hit up the Mainstrasse Goettafest before, and it’s a fun time. But not to be confused with the other Goettafest, Glier’s Goettafest over in Newport where I fell in love with the Goetta ‘n Chedda grilled cheese sammich…

Not Goetta…

Also not Goetta…

Getting closer…

And then, we finally found it…

Goetta ‘n Chedda! The secret is a slice of cheese on each slice of bread with the Goetta in the center…

Genifer snapped this photo of me enjoying my first bite of Goetta ‘n Chedda!
I was so happy! Goetta ‘n Chedda! HOORAY!

Genifer found some of the best beer cheese I’ve ever had in my life…

We were so full of Goetta ‘n Chedda and amazing beer cheese that we didn’t have room for a bucket of delicious little donuts, also known as a Bucket of Heaven…

Or any ice creams at Piper’s Cafe

And when we were done, we just hopped the Shuttle back downtown…

It was a great afternoon full of Goetta and beer cheese deliciousness! 🙂

We went out to get Blizzards from Dairy Queen in Northern Kentucky before tonight’s FC Cincinnati away match at Orlando City B
