Hello September.

Can you believe that today is the first day of September? It’s crazy how fast the year has gone for pretty much staying at home for the last six months.

When we looked out our bedroom window this morning, we saw a new friend sitting on our window sill…

How cool is that? We haven’t seen a Praying Mantis in a quick minute.

Good morning from Northside…

The praying mantis was still hanging out after our morning walk…

When we were leaving Knoxville, the gas station by our hotel had a Cinnabon inside. We got a cinnamon roll to bring home with us and this morning, we got to eat it…

It was so good. I love cinnamon rolls. It reminded me a lot of the amazing cinnamon rolls that I used to get from Sidewinder in Northside.

Good evening from Northside…

We had spaghetti with garlic bread for dinner tonight…

I love spaghetti and garlic bread. That’s how it looks when I’m taking a photo of my spaghetti for the blog. And this is how my spaghetti looks after I take my photos and add more dust cheese right before I start eating…

After waiting for what seemed like forever, the guys from Ohio Basement Authority started working on waterproofing our basement today…

They were scheduling six to eight weeks out. And our day finally arrived. They were supposed to here this morning but the team got a flat tire on the way in from Columbus. So they got a bit of a late start. But we’re so excited that this project is finally getting started. 😀🏡❤️

Another great Sunday.

This morning Genifer made these delicious homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

What a really incredible way to start a Sunday morning in Northside.

Oh. And good morning from Northside…

It was a bit overcast to start the day.

Genifer also made these fudge brownies…

Later, we drove out to Liberty Township to spend the afternoon with Geri, Cleve, Alyssa, and Pippa. And we ate these amazing massive steaks…

It was pretty funny. Everyone made the same joke that these giant steaks looked like something straight out of the closing theme from the Flintstones Bronto Burgers and Ribs that tipped over their car…

It was a great afternoon hanging out in Liberty Township and the steaks were pretty dang incredible. When we got home, we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside. It was a great Sunday. And a great weekend. 😀🌄🥩❤️

Coffee on a rainy morning.

It was another grey and rainy morning. So we ran over to get some Sidewinder coffee before Genifer headed out to work…

And Sidewinder had new cinnamon rolls again

Those new cinnamon rolls are really good. Sidewinder is always a great way to start a morning, especially a really rainy one. 😀☕️❤️

Things are getting a bit better?

It was really nice this morning. Genifer and I drove over to get Sidewinder Coffee before she left for the office and before I headed upstairs to get to work.

And this morning, Sidewinder had new cinnamon rolls and I got the last one…

It was a really good cinnamon roll. Not as good as the original cinnamon twists that Sidewinder used to have. Those were some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had. But this one was pretty darn good. It reminded me a lot of the cinnamon muffin we shared at Overeasy in Dallas. 😀☕️❤️

But maybe, just maybe, this was a little sign that things are starting to return to normal just a little bit.

A pretty good start to the weekend.

It’s Saturday morning so we got up early to go get more Biggby Coffee

This weekend we had a coupon for $1 off…

Genifer got a 20oz. Caramel Marvel latte and I got a 24oz. Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with some butterscotch flavoring added to it…

Biggby’s coffee is sooo good. When we got home with our Biggby coffees, we made some delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

What a great way to start a weekend. 😀☕️❤️

It’s what’s for breakfast.

We had delicious Pillsbury cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning…

And they were really good. 😀❤️

Sunday morning with Biggby Coffee.

When we were up in Michigan last Christmas, we got to try Biggby Coffee on our last day as we were getting on the road to head back to Cincinnati. And Biggby’s coffee drinks were really good. Genifer had their Caramel Marvel and I had their Butter Bear. I looooved the Butter Bear. It was a latte with caramel and butterscotch. I was pretty sure I found my new favorite coffee drink of all time because it combined two of my favorite things… butterscotch and bears. Biggby was a great place but we thought we’d wouldn’t bet their coffee again until we went back up north.

Then we noticed that there are a handful of Biggby Coffees scattered around the greater Cincinnati area. Unfortunately, none of those locations were really all that close to us, northern Kentucky or all the way out in Loveland. Until… a brand new Biggby Coffee just opened in Madisonville. And today, we check out the new Biggby and get some delicious Biggby coffee…

Biggby Coffee is delicious. We repeated the same order as we had up in Michigan, plus a cinnamon roll. And it was every bit as terrific as we remembered. We’re glad you’re just around the corner from us now Biggby! We will be back often! 😀☕️🐻❤️

Awakenings Coffee Roasters.

On Saturday mornings, we’ve been getting up super early and heading to Trader Joe’s to get some groceries for the week before it gets crazy over there. After we’re done at Joe’s, I thought it would be fun to try a different coffee shop in the area. This morning’s coffee shop was Awakenings Coffee Roasters in Montgomery…

She shared a cinnamon roll because… well, I love cinnamon rolls…

The coffees and the cinnamon roll were both really good…

Oh. And we shared this breakfast sammich…

It was a really good little coffee shop. We can’t wait to find more. 😀☕️❤️

Thursday evening at Listermann.

After work this evening, we stopped at Listermann Brewing Company’s taproom across the street from Xavier’s campus…

We’ve been to Listermann before. We pre-gamed there before one of the very first FC|C preseason matches against Xavier, and we loved going to their Volksfest. Earlier in the week, we saw on their Instagram that they had a Mexican Chocolate Chickow on tap that sounded very intriguing. And then we saw that they also had a Mexican Chocolate Stout on tap as well called Pastel Con Amigos. But when we got to the taproom, they were both already gone. But there were a lot of other interesting sounding beers on tap…

We decided to start with a flight…

Our first flight…

Father Kyle’s Cinnamon Stout was really good. As was Satisfied? Their Cookie Wizard had glitter in it. You can sort of see it here…

There it is…

And here’s our second flight…

In my opinion, Nutcase is one of Listermann’s best beers. Sooo peanut buttery! Seen and noted that Thursday night is also Wing Night in the taproom…

We didn’t partake but we ordered some other stuff from Renegade Grille

We ordered some deep fried mac ‘n cheese balls, loaded cheese fries and a fried bologna sammich to share…

The fried bologna sammich and loaded fries were out of this world…

It was a fun Thursday evening. We can’t wait to come back for another fried bologna sammich and some more incredible beers. 😀🍺❤️

It’s what’s for breakfast.

Cinnamon rolls are what’s for breakfast on the morning of Thanksgiving…

Cinnamon rolls. And the Thanksgiving Day parade. 😀🦃❤️
