The view is pretty nice.

The windows on the west side of Grey’s office overlooks the 71/75 interchange. I could sit and watch the traffic all day long. It’s so mesmerizing…

And then it started raining…

Later in the afternoon, the rain stopped and I took this LapseIt timelapse looking out the window from my space on the other side of the office…

The views of downtown Cincinnati from Grey’s offices are just gorgeous. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒค๏ธโค๏ธ

#TBT Pause for paws.

I miss Milan so much. I miss his beautiful green eyes and his incredibly sweet demeanor. There’s isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about him.

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

3 Points Pop Up Power Hour.

We saw that today 3 Points Urban Brewery was doing another Pop Up Power Hour

3-Points has some really good beers…

And we got to order some more delicious CHX…

And boom! Minutes later, we had lotsa food…

I ordered another 4-piece banty with hush puppies…

Genifer got their mac&cheese…

We also had a bag of wavy fries and a bag of extra hush puppies. I love hush puppies. And we love when 3 Points does their Pop-Up Power Hours. Great beers at cheap prices and some of the most incredible chicken with hush puppies? Dang. What’s not to love about that? ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿถโค๏ธ

Taco Wednesday.

Tonight, we made this Trader Joe’s Beef Sirloin Taco Kit for dinner…

And the tacos were delicious…

We love Trader Joe’s. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

My first day Grey.

Today was my first day at Grey Midwest. This morning we stopped for coffee. We were joking that we should have made one of those first day of school plaques that you see people make for their kids. Thadd. First day at Grey. I’m a senior designer. Favorite color is navy. Favorite foods are spaghetti with garlic bread and cheeseburgers…

Here’s my space…

Right next to the window…

And I still get a sweet view Carew Tower…

If I look out the windows toward the south, I can see the Bengals Paul Bown Stadium…

This refrigerator is full of community food that anyone can help themselves to…

And these drawers have every sort of snack you could think of…

In the lobby by the elevators, there’s this adorable little door…

It was an unbelievable first day. The people, the space, the company are all just out of this world. I was pinching myself all day long to make sure this wasn’t a dream. I can’t wait for tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ปโค๏ธ

A busy Tuesday.

Good morning from Northside. I had a big day planned on my last day before I started my new job tomorrow…

This morning we took Oscar to get his haircut before our epic road trip next week…

After dropping off Oscar, I dropped off Genifer at work before heading downtown to drop off my key fob at Deskey. I wasn’t going to be needing that anymore…

I dropped off my fob. Ran over to Rookwood Commons to go to Old Navy. I wanted a new navy polo shirt. I ended up finding one and a bunch of other stuff for our road trip. From there, I went to the grocery store to get dog food and cat litter and other odds and ends since I won’t be able just to walk around the corner to CVS or the hardware store anymore. On my way home, I picked up a couple of McDonald’s Filet O’Fish for lunch. And while I was eating my fish, I ordered us two general admission tickets for the upcoming USMNT match versus Venezuela at Nippert Stadium…

I went to go pick-up Oscar from the groomers but he wasn’t quite ready yet. I had about a half hour to kill so I went to check out Maverick’s Comics & Cards in Finneytown…

And then it was time to pick up Oscar…

He looks so handsome. At Maverick’s, I found a bunch of Usagi Yojimbo back issues…

Later, I went to pickup Genifer from work, and on the way home, we stopped for a beer and a fried bologna sammich with some loaded cheese fries…

Just today, Listermann released a collaboration Bottle Logic Brewing called Scoring Discrepancies. It was a with Imperial Stout with peanut butter and raspberry…

It was a lot of running around. But I really feel like I got a lot accomplished today. ๐Ÿ˜€โค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

After Genifer left this morning, the dogs couldn’t figure out why I was still home and she wasn’t. They sat by the door waiting for her to come back…

Later, we hung out in the backyard for a couple of hours…

After then we went upstairs so Oscar could take a nap…

Mack sat by the window and watched the world outside…

It was pretty awesome to have a boys day with the dogs. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside.

I have today and tomorrow off before I start my new job with Grey. This morning Genifer dropped me off an iced chai latte and cinnamon twist from Sidewinder

Thank you, baby! You are amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

We saw our first lizard of the season when we were walking the dogs this evening…

๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸฆŽโค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner this evening, we were going to grill these sausages from Trader Joe’s

But we forgot to get charcoal for the grill. So we decided to use our little orange grill…

And the sausages were delicious! I don’t know which one I liked better. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ
