It’s Skyline time!

Genifer had to go into work for a little bit this morning. When she got home, we headed over to Skyline in St. Bernard for some Skyline Time! It’s been a minute since we last had Skyline time. I got a Skyline gift card for Christmas but wouldn’t you know I left it on our dining room table…

Mmmm… Cheese coneys and chili cheese sammiches are so good. YUM! πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ

Are you ready for some football?

This afternoon, we drove over to Rookwood Commons to go to BJ’s Brewhouse for their awesome Sunday Happy Hour during the final Sunday of the NFL regular season…

We started with a couple of beers. Genifer likes their PM Porter and I usually go for their Tatonka Stout. We also had some mozzarella sticks…

We planned to order more food for lunch but the normally reliable bar service at BJs was just horrendous today. Apparently, the bartender was really hungover and didn’t feel like waiting on anybody. We couldn’t even manage to flag him down to refill our water. So we broke camp and went to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

The pizza and wings were awesome. And our Cowboys won big but the Eagles won too. So the Cowboys will be watching the playoffs with the rest of us. πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸΊπŸ§€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Back to Kenwood.

This afternoon we ran back over to Kenwood Town Center. Genifer got me a new iPad for Christmas. We just had to pick it up at the Apple Store. We wandered around for the mall for a bit afterward. Genifer found a new shirt for New Year’s Eve. Other than that, it was pretty uneventful. I did see these very handsome fancy fox sirs…

After walking around the mall, we stopped at Revolution Rotisserie again for lunch. We shared pimento cheese dip, BBQ boneless chicken wings, and some tots…

It was a really good lunch and another fun afternoon during our long holiday break.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We exchanged our Christmas presents this morning…

Santa was very good to us. We went over to Genifer’s brother’s house for a little bit before heading out to her mom’s in the afternoon for Christmas dinner and more gifts…

When we got home, we set everything on our dining room table so the dogs wouldn’t get into things they shouldn’t be getting into and it looked like Christmas exploded all over our dining room. What a terrific holiday mess…

We had a really wonderful Christmas in Cincinnati. And we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽβ€οΈ

Wiedenmann’s fine foods.

We stopped back at Wiedenmann’s fine beers in St. Bernard for lunch today…

We had another one of their delicious German Chocolate Cake Imperial Stouts…

Genifer ordered their Caesar Wrap…

And I had their Wiedie Burger…

Both the wrap and the burger were both really good. The burger was huge for a 1/3lb. We really like Wiedenmann’s beers and now we really their food too. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸŒ―πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! We got up early this morning to get some Biggby Coffee

Genifer has been really liking their Peppermint Mocha Latte with almond milk and I’ve been all about the Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a shot of butterscotch. I also a big fan of Biggby’s sausage egg and cheese breakfast bagel sammich on an Asiago bagel. It’s really good stuff all the way around…

After Biggby, we went over to Rookwood Commons to do some last-minute shopping. We were mainly looking for some stuff for the dogs. But all I did was take photos of adorable stuff like these two characters…

How about caramel coffee flavoring in a penguin bottle wearing a winter hat?

Or a larger than life-sized plush penguin…

Oe a Triceratops sleeping bag…

I bought this sugar cookie ix because how cute is that little polar bear serving tray?

I like bears. After shopping, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket so I could get my Chicken Finger BLT. I really like Rusty Bucket and I love that chicken sammich. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk and then we were pretty lazy…

It was a pretty good Christmas Eve Eve…

And it’s been a really good break so far. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΎβ€οΈ

Sunday afternoon in West Chester.

This morning we went out to the grocery in West Chester and I saw this adorable toy…

The mouse has little cheese inside it. How cute is that? After the grocery, we went out to lunch with Geri at Dingle House. I had the most amazing codwich sammich. It was really good. We hung out with Geri for a little bit. She had a wonderful little Christmas scene set up in her window…

When we got home, we watched the Cowboys lose. Again. It was a really nice Sunday.

Christmas in Pleasant Ridge.

This afternoon we drove over to Pleasant Ridge to go to Overlook Lodge and check out their annual Christmas extravaganza called Miracle at the Overlook Lodge

We’ve heard that Overlook goes a bit overboard with their holiday decorations…

The drinks on their seasonal menu sounded fantastic…

I started with their Christmas Carol Barrel and Genifer their Snowball Old-Fashioned…

Cleve and Alyssa joined us for a drink. For our second beverage, Genifer had their Jingle Balls Nog and I tried the Yippie Ki Yay Mister Falcon…

All the drinks we were really tasty. Genifer loved their nog, and my favorite was the barrel. After finishing our drinks, we walked down the street to Revolution Rotisserie to grab a bite to eat…

I had their chicken pot pie special and Genifer had boneless wings…

Delicious stuff all around. It was another really fun evening over in Pleasant Ridge.

Artworks at Biggby Coffee.

We got up to get coffee this morning from Biggby Coffee. And there was a really neat display of kids’ artworks on the wall…

These two were my favorites…

I love little kids’ creativity. It’s truly inspiring. It made me want to go home and work on creating something beautiful. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨β€οΈ

Getting in some Christmas shopping.

We both had the day off work today. Genifer doesn’t usually work on Tuesdays and I’ve been trying to use up my vacation days before the end of the year. So this morning, we went and got coffee from Biggby and then went to the mall. The last time I went to the mall was over two years ago…

Do you think this is the last Sbarro on Earth? They used to be everywhere…

It was kinda fun to wander around the mall. We got a few things not a whole bunch. I definitely still have a bunch of Christmas shopping left to do. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈβ€οΈ
