They really do make pumpkin spice everything. Don’t they…

And then there was this…

I just don’t know what to say. There’s a very good reason we don’t go to Walmart very often. At all.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽƒโค๏ธ

Home Goods in Rookwood.

This morning we went over to Home Goods at Rookwood Commons. I always find it interesting to wander around inside of Home Goods. They have all sorts of things you never know you needed for your home. I almost got this canvas for our office…

A Halloween mummy mug or a fox wearing glasses mug with legs…

These giraffes were odd but adorable…

As were these pot steam vents…

And the monster on this bag of popcorn…

Who wouldn’t want this huge three-pound bag of gummi bears…

After wandering around Home Goods, we walked to Rusty Bucket again for lunch. Genifer had a burger…

And I had their patty melt…

I love patty melts.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Hyde Perk & Haircuts.

This morning we both went to get our haircut with Katie Walters over in Hyde Park. But first, we stopped for coffee at Hyde Perk

Hyde Perk is such a cute place. And their coffee was really good too. Not as good as our Sidewinder in Northside but still really good. And then we got our haircuts. I used to get my haircut with Katie way back in the day when she was at Salon Beck downtown. Then she jumped to her own place in Hyde Park. I started going to Rooster’s downtown, and then most recently Great Clips just for a quick cut. After Katie cut my hair again today, it looked so nice. I had forgotten how good you feel after a really good haircut. And she always does a wonderful job with Genifer’s hair too. I think I’m just going to start going back to Katie to get my hair cut from now on even though she’s all the way over in Hyde Park.

After our haircuts, we stopped at Rusty Bucket for lunch. I don’t know why but whenever we find ourselves over around Rookwood Pavilion, we always end up eating at Rusty Bucket and it’s always really good. Genifer had a quesadilla and I had this chicken tender BLT sammich…

Great coffee, great haircut, great sammich.ย It was a pretty great day.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโœ‚๏ธ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers.

Back when we first stumbled across Finneytown, we drove by this place called Freddy’s Frozen Custard &Steakburgers. I had never heard of Freddy’s Steakburgers before. But apparently, it’s a chain founded in Wichita, Kansas in 2002 with over 300 locations. Who knew? It wouldn’t have really stood out to me except for the giant PATTY MELTS on the side of the building. And I reallyย love patty melts. Genifer said that someday when we were in Finneytown again, we could stop and check Freddy’s out and someday turned out to be today…

Genifer ordered a cheeseburger…

And of course, I ordered a patty melt…

It was really good stuff! Their patty melt was delicious and I loved their famous jalapeno fry sauce. Afterwards, we shared a Dirt โ€™n Worms mini concreteย with Freddy’s creamy vanilla custard, Oreoย cookies, gummi worms, topped whipped cream and a cherry. It was also really good. But I completely forgot to take a photo of it before we starting digging in. And it was really good too. I can’t wait until we head back to Freddy’s again, hopefully in the very near future.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Running some errands on the Westside.

We ran some errands over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. Genifer got a new Fitbit Versa from Best Buy. We stopped to say hi to Genifer’s brother’s family. And we stopped at Aldi for some groceries…

It’s the first time I’ve ever been to an Aldi. I was kind of surprised how much good stuff they had at Aldi. We picked up a few things for the week including this oven pizza…

For just an oven pizza, it was really good. Who knew Aldi had such good stuff?ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

We always chuckle at this flower pot family whenever we head over to the Westside…

Every time was pass it, it’s always different. But it’s always equally elaborate. We always wonder what the backstory is and how it all got started. No matter what the story is, it always entertains us. And gives us a good chuckle as we shake our heads as drive by. Oh, the things people do to entertain themselves.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒปโค๏ธ

Fun stuff makes therapy better.

This morning Mack had a vet appointment to get updated on his vaccinations. And then later in the morning, I had physical therapy. We left a little bit early to stop for breakfast at Sleepy Bee in Oakley. It was so good.ย Genifer hadย The Worker Bee breakfast slam…

And I had The Broakley breakfast sammich…

Then it was on to physical therapy…

Later in the afternoon, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for a beer while we watched the kickoff of the new season of English Premier League soccer between Leicester City (hooray!) and Manchester United (boo!)…

And we had some knots with beer cheese and a little pizza…

Unfortunately, Leicester lost 2-1. But Jamie Vardy scored so that’s something good.

Physical therapy hasn’t been bad. And I actually look forward to it because my hips feel much better afterward. But sandwiching it in between a couple of really fun activities makes it even better.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ•โšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

A stop at Streetside.

Being right in the neighborhood after lunch at Taglio, we stopped for a little sampler at Streetside Brewery. We love Streetside…

#15 was outstanding!ย Trouble in Paradise Millkshake Blonde with mango, passion fruit and guava. It was more like drinking juice and less like drinking a beer…

And we brought home a couple more crowlers with us to bring up to Michigan…

Taglio Pizza.

After my physical therapy, we stopped in Columbia Tusculum for lunch at Taglio Pizza. We first heard about Taglio through their Instagram. They are becoming quite well known for their deep dish Detroit style pizza. We weren’t aware there was such a thing as Detroit style pizza. But the photos looked amazing, we had to try this incredible looking pizza for ourselves…

We ordered the deep dish Spicy Italian…

And look at that beauty. It’s a work of art. A delicious, looking work of eatable art…

Taglio’s deep dish pizza is every bit as delicious as it looks. I can’t wait until we have the opportunity to eat it again. The best part of Taglio’s Detroit deep dish pizza is it only comes in one size with eight slice which means there were still plenty of leftovers for us to eat later.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

Urbana Cafe.

On the way to my physical therapy, we stopped in East Walnut Hills at Urbana Cafe for a coffee. Urbana Cafe just recently opened down the street from where Genifer works and she thought the place was so cute that I had to see it…

Such a cute little cafe. And the coffee was really good too. I want to open a super cute little coffee shop just to decorate it and then post photos to its Instagram.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ
