Today was the first step.

Today was the first step in a whole new adventure for me…

The first page in the next chapter. And it’s all very exciting. 😀📖❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

Just checking in on the progress with the construction across the street

And this afternoon, I had to walk across downtown and I got to see the construction that is taking place at Fourth and Race Streets…

I don’t know why I find construction sites so fascinating. I just think construction sites are pretty interesting and it’s neat to be able to watch something brand new start to grow out of nothing and take shape. 😀🚧❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Tonight for dinner, Genifer made Kung Pao Chicken & potstickers from Trader Joe’s…

Trader Joe’s is pretty awesome. They have some really good stuff over there. 😀🍜❤️

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

Checking in our third-floor WyzeCam view of our street…

I thought I heard something outside. But at 11:13pm, all is quiet on our street. 😀📹❤️

Spring Grove Beer Gallop.

Very similar to last year’s Hamilton Hightail Run, this morning was the Spring Grove Beer Gallop. It was a 4-mile roundtrip fun run that started at Higher Gravity that included stops at Taft’s Brewpourium and Urban Artifact. Runner also got 4 beer tickets, a T-shirt and a whole lotta fun!

And we showed up in Higher Gravity’s Instagram story…

And with that, they were off…

If my counting was correct, Genifer came in fourteenth. In the raffle after the race, Genifer won a pair of new running shoes from JackRabbit…

It was a fun morning and early afternoon at Higher Gravity. 😀👟🍺❤️

The monsoon match.

Tonight, FC Cincinnati played host to Philadelphia Union in what will forever be known in my mind and always referred to as the FC|C Monsoon Match…

We headed down to where we normally stand only to find a lot of people had pretty much the same exact idea…

I think I spent as much time watching the rain fall as I spent watching the soccer…

We decided to break camp just before half time and watch the second half from the comfort of St. Clair. Any place inside of Nippert Stadium with an overhang was jam-packed full of people…

When FC Cincinnati went down 2-0, we decided to pack it in completely, get an Uber and head for home…

FC Cincinnati ended up losing the monsoon match 2-0. 😀⚽️🌧️☔️❤️

Seen and noted.

How fun is this little monster sticker I spotted in Clifton?

I wish I knew where I could find some more of these guys. 😀👾❤️

Best laid plans.

We had a whole entire day of Cincinnati sports planned today. A couple of weeks ago, we bought Fioptics District tickets for today’s afternoon Reds game. And then after the Reds game, we were going to ride the Metro 17 bus up to tonight’s FC Cincinnati match. Before the Reds game, we stopped to eat lunch at The Pony

And look what they still had on draft…

BELL’S MANGO HABANERO OBERON!

The Pony is such a great little place…

We shared a chicken finger basket. Their chicken fingers are just out of this world…

And we shared their delicious chicken wing dip…

It was remarkably similar to Genifer’s buffalo chicken dip. But it was served with Frito’s instead of tortilla chips. I really liked it with Frito’s. I liked it a lot. Genifer also got the very last of the Bell’s Mango Habanero Oberon…

While we were eating, it would alternate between being sunny outside and then a few minutes later it would be pouring down rain. We were watching the Reds Twitter for any updates, And as we were getting ready to head down towards the ballpark, this tweet popped up…

The start of the Reds game was delayed. And then there was this tweet that popped up a little while later…

Bummer. You know what they say about best-laid plans, right? At least we got a really good lunch out of it at The Pony. 😀🐴🌧️⚾️❤️

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. It’s very grey and overcast this morning. That’s not a very promising sign for today’s events. 😀🌄❤️

My March StitchFix.

My StitchFix for March arrived in the mail today. There was this pink polo…

And this light blue/grey polo…

There was this red t-shirt…

This grey lightweight hoodie…

And this dark denim…

Pretty nice stuff. I decided to keep just the light blue/grey polo shirt. The other stuff was really nice but it was a little on the expensive side. I really like my StitchFix. I can’t wait to see what is in my next box! 😀📨❤️
