Whip burgers and 62,000 miles!

Our 2008 VW Jetta GLI about to hit 62,000 miles on the odometer this evening…

We stopped at Queen City RadioΒ for happy hour on the way home…

We shared a delicious whip burger and fries…

We also got one of their cheese coneys too…

I really like their cheese coneys. But I love their Whip Burgers. And on our way home, we hit 62,000 miles…

It was a pretty nice reward for getting back to work today. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸŒ­πŸš—β€οΈ

And we’re back to work…

It’s pretty wonderful to be back at Grey this morning after our super long epic road trip vacation. It’s like coming back from holiday and stepping right into a dream…

It’s what’s for dinner.

Tonight, we had Trader Joe’s Kung Pao Chicken for dinner…

It was really good. Not quite as good as Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken.Β That’s freaking amazing. But this was still really good. πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘❀️

We’re back from our epic road trip!

We made it back to Cincinnati this afternoon…

And we’re back home. We returned our rental SUV. picked up Mack from his kennel and our house survived just fine…

The grass was a bit long. But none the worse for wear. We had a great time on our epic road trip! Over 10 days, we covered almost 1950 miles through seven states.

We hope you followed along on our adventure. If not, check out our Instagrams. All of our photos have been posted and labeled on Flickr. And we even uploaded some videos to our YouTube.Β It was a great trip. We had a wonderful time. But it’s really nice to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ—ΊοΈβ€οΈ

Eight years ago today.

Genifer and I went on our very first date. We went to a Reds game. We sat out by Jay Bruce, and saw Aroldis Chapman close out the Reds win…

Oh, the butterflies I had at that game. It took me six innings just to put my arm around her seat at the game. Afterward, we walked up to Mainstay Rock Bar to see Bad Veins…

It was one of the best evenings of my life because of the incredible woman I got to spend it with.Β 2,920 evenings later, and I still get butterflies every day. Thank you for spending the last eight years with me, Genifer. I love so so very much. πŸ₯°βšΎπŸ˜

Good evening from Northside.

It’s what’s for dinner.

We ate Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange ChickenΒ with potstickers for dinner tonight…

It’s quickly become one of our favorites. πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘❀️

A pretty low-key weekend.

I didn’t take very many photos this weekend. Not many at all. Yesterday, Mack went to the vet to get his allergy shot. We walked down to Second Place to eat cheeseburgers and watch the Newcastle versus Brighton soccer match. And we just watched Netflix for the rest of the day. We binge-watched the first season of Chambers. It was pretty good. But it got kinda weird at the end. And we watched FC Cincinnati lose. Again. This time they lost 1-0 away to New Jersey Red Bulls. That’s really all we did. It was a pretty chill Saturday.

Today, we ran some errands to get some stuff for our upcoming road trip. We got some new stuff from Old Navy where I saw this adorable gift bag…

I have a very real thing for monsters right now. I even started a Pinterest board of just monster illustrations. Later, we ate this Trader Joe’s pepperoni pizza…

It was really good. Have we mentioned we love Trader Joe’s? πŸ˜€πŸ—ΊοΈπŸ‘ΉπŸ•β€οΈ
