It was another rainy morning.

It was another rainy morning in Cincinnati. Can you guess where we were?

We went to get more delicious Biggby Coffees

We got hot beverages this morning because it was a bit chilly and so rainy…

We love our Biggby Coffee drinks. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Saturday morning errands.

This morning we got up, dodged the raindrops and ran over to the grocery store…

I stopped to look for a birthday card for my sister…

Since the last time we were at Kroger, they placed doors over all the refrigerated sections like where the eggs and yogurts live…

Just another handle to touch. It seems like the grocery store is slowly returning to normal as far as supplies go. There were very few empty shelves this trip. There were also these adorable BBQ themed balloons…

After we had all our groceries, we stopped at the Kroger Fuel Center to get some gas. Genifer had so many Kroger Rewards points that she got $1 off each gallon of gas. And it made the gas just 59ยข a gallon…

We wished we could have filled the car up twice…

Because it only cost $8 to fill up our car…

On the way home, we stopped to get some Biggby Coffee

It was just a rainy morning. But at least, we got our grocery shopping out of the way for the week.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today, we celebrate some very obscure Mexican military victory over the French with all things Mexican!

HOLY GUACAMOLE! When we were at Kroger a few days ago, they had all the Cinco de Mayo stuff you could ever need…

And this year, Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday! I’m super excited because I’m pretty sure we’re having tacos for dinner tonight to celebrate! We hope everyone gets some tacos today and has a wonderful Cinco de Mayo edition of Taco Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

UPDATE: And here’s my taco…

Hooray for BOGO Biggby coffee!

BOGO Biggby coffee makes any morning better. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Guess who’s back?

Guess who’s back open after a brief COVID-19 hiatus? BIGGBY COFFEE! Genifer called Biggby and it turns out they reopened on Wednesday…

So this morning, we ran over to Madisonville to get some Biggby coffees…

We didn’t even need to look at the menu…

Genifer got a Caramel Marvel and I got the Cocoa Carmella with a bit of butterscotch…

Biggby Coffee is so delicious. We’re really happy that they’re back open. We haven’t had coffee from Biggby is almost a month. And that’s just too long. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Coffee from Mad Llama.

Before I started working this morning, we ran over to get some drive-thru Friday morning coffee and hot chocolate from Mad Llama in Madisonville…

It was so good when we got Mad Llama on Wednesday

Genifer got a caramel latte with oat milk and I got a hot chocolate, of course…

Mad Llama makes some really delicious drinks. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ™โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Line to enter starts here.

We ran over to Trader Joe’s this morning. We were pretty surprised to see that they were limiting the number of customers to 30 people in the store at a time…

The line wasn’t very long. There were only three or four people ahead of us. Once we got into Trader Joe’s, it was pretty much like having the store to ourselves…

On the way home, we stopped to get coffee from Mad Llama, and we were back home in time for my first meeting of the morning. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

As empty as the shelves.

We usually do all of our grocery shopping at Kroger. But the last time we were going to get groceries, we noticed there were a lot fewer cars in the Meijer parking lot than in the Kroger parking lot. So this morning, we ran over to Meijer to pick up a few things…

Meijer was surprisingly empty…

And so were the shelves in the paper products aisle. The shortage is still very real…

Thankfully, we’re still good on all our paper products and toiletries. But we were really surprised by just how few people were at Meijer. It was practically just us and these adorable little turtles…

But at least we were able to get a few more things. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿงป๐Ÿขโค๏ธ

Two each per customer.

We ran over to the grocery this morning. And we were pleasantly surprised by our trip today. They really restocked since the last time we went about a week ago. And they had these signs all over the store…

There werenโ€™t nearly as many empty shelves as there were last time. And it wasnโ€™t too busy. But there were still a surprising number of people at the grocery at 8am on a Friday morning. And we saw these Hostess Baseball Cupcakes….

Day Game and Night Game cupcakes. We should have got some cupcakes.

There were a lot of check-out lanes open this morning. And they alternated lanes so it was one open, one closed. They also added a bunch of floor stickers to show six feet for social distancing at check-out.

And a LOT of people were wearing masks and latex gloves. Some people were wearing bandanas and the elbow-length gloves used to wash dishes. And that was the oddest thing about our trip.

Other than that, it was a pretty normal trip to Kroger. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโค๏ธ

At least there were Shiny Stars.

We ran to the grocery again before work this morning…

We’ve found that going to the grocery early in the morning is the best time for us to go. And another surprising outage at the grocery were the bags of store brand cereal…

Thankfully, they still had lots of bags of Shiny Stars still. Shiny Stars are my favorite…

Did I mention I really like Shiny Stars? It’s my favorite cereal. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฃ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ
