It’s another sign.

For the Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival down at Hoffner Park…

And for the Northside Fourth of July Parade

We were just moving into our house during all of last year’s Northside Fourth of July festivities. We can’t wait to check it all out this year. Hopefully, it doesn’t rain. #MURICA😀🇺🇸❤️

We have our tickets!

We’ve already received our tickets in the mail for a couple of upcoming FC Cincinnati matches are going to be huge. HUGE! First up is the massive Fith Round US Open Cup match at Nippert Stadium against the Chicago Fire of MLS…

And we’ve also received our tickets for this season’s incredible international friendly when FC Cincinnati welcomes Valencia CF of Spain’s La Liga to Nippert Stadium…

And here are our tickets in all their spectacular soccer glory…

To say that we are just a little bit excited for these matches might be the biggest understatement of the season. 😀❤️⚽️

Stopping in Clifton.

On the way home, I got off the bus in Clifton’s Gaslight District to pick up a few things. I’ve been having the strangest, really odd craving for some old skool Sunny D lately. I wonder if Clifton Market has any Sunny D?

After picking up a few groceries including Sunny D, I walked right next door and ordered us some delicious take-out for dinner from China Kitchen…

It’s super convenient that all these great places are right on the 17 bus line home. It’s so easy to get a transfer, hop off the bus, pick up some great stuff and then get right back the next bus! I love it. 😀🚌🍊🍜

Northside nubs.

When we stopped at Sidewinder to get coffee this morning, We were really liking these little paintings by artist, Greg Albert…

And on the way out, we noticed this sign for a new pizza restaurant opening down the street in the Chameleon

We can’t wait to check out their pizza. 😀🍕❤️

This evening we walked through a couple of open houses in our neighborhood. It’s really interesting to see how other houses are laid out and how they’ve been decorated. They’re all so different…

They were both really nice but I think we’ll always like our house better. Because home is where the heart is. ❤️

Have yourself a game, Scooter Gennett!

Scooter Gennett had four home runs including a grand slam, 10 RBIs and 17 total bases in tonight’s game against the Cardinals. Have yourself a game, Scooter Gennett!
He became the first Red to ever hit 4 HRs in one game, and just the 17th player in MLB history. WOW! 😀🙃👊💪💯⚾️❤️

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. 🙂

To remember.

Our chief sanity officer sent this out this morning, and I thought it was very powerful…

Today marks the anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944). Starting in 1993, Charles
Schulz ran this comic to commemorate the beginning of the liberation of Western
Europe during WWII. Schulz died in 2000, but newspapers that still run “Peanuts”
still run this comic.

The bouquet of daisies I got for Genifer all the way back on May 24th is still looking as fresh as the day they arrived…

We didn’t do anything after our big fun day yesterday except lay around today. 😀🌼

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! 🙂

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from Northside. 🙂

Seen and noted.

These roses by our bus stop are pretty spectacular…

Tag! You’re it.

On the way home, I stopped at Urban Artifact to pick up some more Finn, and on my way out spotted this funny guy just around the corner from these guys

Taken with Instagram. 👑 😬 ❤️  >💲

49,000!

Our 2008 VW Jetta GLI hit 49,000 miles on the odometer today…

Thanks to Genifer for grabbing a photo for me. 🙂

Downtown details.

Whenever I walk passed Dixie Terminal on Fourth Street, I always stop and marvel at the beauty of its grand entry way…
