Whatchya waiting for?

Check out this line outside of downtown sneaker shop, Unheardof

The line went all the way down the block. As it turns out, they were queued up for these Halloween sneakers. 😶👟❤️

It’s a sign.

For tomorrow’s Northside Flea

We’ll have to try to check it out tomorrow. 😀🛍️❤️

UPDATE: We totally missed the Northside Flea. 😐

Meet the Egguins.

Our new Penguin Egg Holder arrived in the mail today. Making hard-boiled eggs has never been so much fun or so cute. 😀🥚🐧❤️

Little monsters live here.

We saw this guy today at Home Goods…

Also, it’s August 29th and Halloween stuff is out in stores. 😀👹🎃❤️

Seen and noted.

Seen and noted at Trader Joe’s. 😀🧸❤️

Saturday afternoon in OtR.

We got up this morning, walked the dogs and then hopped on our Metro 17 bus to head down into Over-the-Rhine. Today was the first spring edition of The City Flea in OtR’s beautiful Washington Park

Thornwoods! I used to work with Ben at Deskey. He and his wife started this pop-up and their stuff is really awesome!

I also love all the creatures from Happy Groundhog Studios…

I also used to work with James Billiter at LPK, who does some terrific stuff as well…

It was another great edition of The City Flea. Afterward, we headed over to get a drink from one of Genifer’s favorite OtR spots, Sundry and Vice. 

And today, S&V had homemade empanadas…

DANG! I love empanadas so much!

Genifer loves Sundry and Vice’s draft Old Fashioned…

Next, we walked up Vine Street and were drawn in by this sign in front of panino

We’ll have to stop back at panino for sammiches. I’ve heard nothing but good things.

It seems like there is always something “coming soon” in OtR…

And then we walked over to Mecca

And we had one of their Chunkers…

And some popcorn…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed back home. It was a really fun afternoon wandering around Over-the-Rhine. 😀🛍️🥃🍿❤️

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? 😀🗺️👹🍕❤️

My April Stitchfix.

My StitchFix for April arrived in the mail today. I opened it up to find this bag…

Inside the bag were these great Sperry’s…

There was this great long-sleeve button-up…

Another sharp polo shirt…

A pair of navy shorts…

And another great pair of denim…

Pretty nice stuff. For the first time, I decided to keep everything in the box. Between my new job and our upcoming road trip, I can really see myself wearing all this stuff. A lot. And this box was pretty reasonable. I really like my StitchFix. I can’t wait to see what is in my next box in June! 😀📨❤️

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.

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! 😀📨❤️
