Saturday morning errands.

This morning we got up and moving and headed over to Trader Joe’s in Kenwood…

We love Trader Joe’s. We’ve become kind of obsessed with their stuff especially their Mandarin Orange Chicken. It’s better almost every takeout Chinese food that we’ve had. And it’s only $4.99. It’s so dang good.

Then we stopped by the new At Home store in Norwood…

I felt like I was in that last scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark

From there, we headed out to The West Side to collect our taxes. We got money back on the federal but we owed the state and city. But we came out ahead. After we got our taxes, we stopped into Menier’s Fine Meats…

I wanted to try their World Famous Chicken Salad

We a little container of the chicken salad (it was awesome), a little bit of their pasta salad and a couple of these awesome buffalo chicken egg rolls…

Meiner’s has really great stuff. And their meats looked out of this world. We’ll have to go back when it’s a little bit warmer outside when we can grill a bunch of stuff. After we were done at Meiner’s, we stopped a BDubs to share some boneless wings for lunch…

Oh, and mini corn dogs. I love their mini corn dogs…

On the way home from The West Side, we saw this sign for Chester’s Chicken at a Shell gas station on Boudinot…

That chicken is so darn cute. I wonder how the chicken is? It was a really good Saturday morning. We got a lot accomplished and we were still home by one o’clock.

BDubs & Brink Brewing.

After dropping off our taxes, we stopped at BDubs on The Westside for lunch…

I think their mini corn dogs are one of the best things around…

Genifer ordered garlic parmesan boneless wings…

And a side of fries…

I had the buffalo chicken sammich…

After we were done with lunch, we stopped at Brink Brewing in College Hill…

Brink always has some pretty awesome beers…

Great lunch and great beers make for a great Saturday. 😀🐔🍺❤️

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? 😀🍕❤️

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. 😀🌻❤️

Stuffed Mushroom Saturday.

We ran a bunch of errands today. We also took Genifer’s nephew out to dinner for his birthday. But the highlight of the day was stopping at Longhorn for lunch because they had this stuffed mushroom appetizer that was out of this world…

I love me some stuffed mushrooms. 😀🍄❤️

A lazy Sunday.

We had a pretty lazy Sunday. We ran a few errands this morning and on the way home, we stopped on the Westside to get some amazing, delicious Jet’s Pizza

We used to Jet’s all the time when we live downtown. But they don’t deliver to Northside. So now, it’s really a special treat when we get to bring home the goodness that is Jet’s pizza. Just look at all that deep dish deliciousness…

After we were stuffed full of yummy Jet’s, we took Oscar on a couple of walks but mostly we just laid around the rest of the afternoon and watched movies…

It was a pretty relaxing Sunday. 😀🍕❤️

Cabana on the River.

After Genifer’s nephew’s football games, we stopped for lunch with Cleve and Alyssa at Cabana on the River

I ordered the jumbo shrimp dinner and Genifer had the turkey burger with avocado…

Great stuff. Also great were the views of the Ohio River…

It was a fun afternoon. And it’s always great to hang out with Cleve and Alyssa. 🙂

St. Antoninus football.

This afternoon we drove out to the westside to watch Genifer’s nephew’s St. Antoninus football games…

Liam’s game was first. He’s number 53 right there…

And then it was time for Aiden’s game…

He’s number 95 over there on the right…

It was beautiful afternoon for some great St. Antoninus football! 🙂

 

Our Memorial Day.

Our Memorial Day… big splash contests in the pool, playing cornhole and eating some delicious BBQ with friends and family…

It was a great Memorial Day! Taken with Instagram. 🙂 #Murica

 

First Communion.

Today was Genifer’s nephew, Liam’s First Communion

And then afterwards, there was a pool party…

There are definitely much worse ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. 🙂
