Five years and two months.

Today is our five-year and two-month wedding anniversary…

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

We have a new dining room rug.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer ordered a new rug for our dining room…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was BBQ PulledPork Tacos with cheddar-jack cheese and crispy jalapenos since it was Taco Tuesday and all…

Taco Tuesday tacos are always really good. And these ones were terrific! We like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

Fiver years ago, I had just hit 48,000 check-ins on my Swarm…

Fast forward to today and I have a little over 80,000 check-ins. I still really like my Swarm. And I really like my tacos. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒฎโญ๏ธโค๏ธ

Wednesday, March 17th.

We didn’t really do much for St. Patrick’s Day this year. But enjoy these classics…

Saturday, March 13th.

We found ourselves up in Centerville this morning. And we got to check out My Favorite Muffin

We both got bagel breakfast sammiches…

And we got four muffins…

This was sugar cookie muffin covered in sprinkles…

And there were more sprinkles inside the muffin…

Five years ago.

Five years ago today, Genifer and I got married in Jamaicaโ€ฆ

Time flies when we’re having fun. It feels like we just exchanged our vows yesterday. Without a doubt, the last five years have been the happiest of my whole life.


Happy anniversary to the love of my life! I love you with all of my heart! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’โค๏ธ

A 43-6 scoring run?!

It was another overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

But it turned out to be a pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This was Italian Romano Pork Meatloaf with Parmesan broccoli and red peppersโ€ฆ

And add some extra dust cheese…

It was another really delicious meal. All the meatloaf dinners we’ve tried have been outstanding. This was yet another meal that would have gone really well with garlic bread. But I’ve been told that not every meal needs to have garlic bread with it. Still, we like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

We watched Michigan run riot on Wisconsin. At one point in the second half, Michigan was up by 40 points courtesy of a stretch when the Wolverines outscored the Badgers 43-6

And they’re only going to get better next season…

And five years ago, Michigan beat then #3 Maryland

โ€œWho’s got it better than us?โ€ Hail! GO BLUE! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธใ€ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

A great start to a three-day weekend.

We both had the day off work today. I could really get used to four-day work weeks. Genifer doesn’t work on Fridays and I used my very last vacation day of 2020…

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 18 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The lead of the eCommerce group at work dropped off a Christmas gift…

It was pretty amazing that she did this. It’s very appreciated. And the roll of toilet paper is hilarious.

Later, we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch. As we were walking down Hamilton Avenue, we noticed a new hair salon has already gone into the location where Helltown Bazaar Workshop used to be…

Surprisingly, Django Western Taco just closed up shop and no longer has a presence in Northside…

And that’s a bummer. We really liked Django a lot. But whatever, it was time for lunch…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheeses with tomatoes…

I ordered my favorite chicken tender sammich…

Blue Jay is always so good. It’s nothing super fancy. It’s always just solid. We never had anything but terrific meals at Blue Jay. Afterward, we stopped at Shake It Records

It’s really hard for me to find new and interesting music that I like. I really like reggae. And I like usually music. I was thumbing through the global music vinyl. And found some interesting stuff to check out…

I’m going to check these out on iTunes or Amazon Music and then come back for the ones I like. At some point, I’d like to upgrade our turntable and get some little speakers in our living room as well…

Hi Oscar…

We took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

I had a leftover taco for a dinner snack…

Genifer made this sugar cookie mix..

I thought the cookies were pretty good but Genifer didn’t care for them. They could definitely use some icing. The dogs always go outside one last time before we go upstairs…

Tonight was the final episode of season two of The Mandalorian,..

Now that all the episodes are avialable, we could finally binge-watch the season. And it was amazing! That show is just wow. I wish we could binge watch it every single day. I wish they would make an infinite amount of Star Wars series with all sorts of storylines from around the Star Wars universe. That would be amazing.

In my Timehop today, we ate at Django when they were still in Northside…

And Oscar is a very handsome little guy…

It was a great start to our three-day weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Special deliveries!

When we woke up this morning, we found Northside got a dusting of snow…

But there wasn’t much snow on the hill at the end of our street…

Time for Lego City Advent Calendar day 15…

Genifer ordered Chipotle delivery for lunch….

Chipotle was delicious. I hadn’t had Chipotle in forever.

Both Arsenal and Leicester played at the same time this afternoon. I kept an eye on both of the matches while I was working…

And both of my teams lost. Arsenal is really in a death spiral right now.

We got a couple of special deliveries today. The first package was from my parents…

And there was a wonderful box of Christmas cookies in their package…

There were so many delicious cookies in that box. We cant wait to try them all. And now we also have presents under our tree…

Thanks, mom & dad! Our second package was from TastesOfChicago.com

And inside were two Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas…

And two huuuuge chocolate chip cookies…

Thanks, JJVE! We can’t wait to try our pizzas and those cookies look terrific!

Later, we took the dogs around the block. It was kind of misty outside this evening…

We couldn’t even see the hill across the way on the other side of the highway…

The hill was just barely visible…

Good evening from Northside…

Today is my Timehop was this photo…

It’s interesting that when I saw this photo my mind went to a completely different place when I saw animal mask than when I saw this originally. And there was this one too…

That would have been the best white elephant gift ever. To this day, I still kick myself for not buying it.

Hi Oscar. He’s so fuzzy!

We had a great Wednesday. Thank you again for the wonderful Christmas gifts.

Banana pudding is delicious.

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening for Northside…

I found this recipe for how to make the banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery in New York City at home. We didn’t make this recipe exactly. But Genifer still made banana pudding for us…

I mixed my pudding and ReddiWip all together…

Banana pudding is delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒโค๏ธ

And this photo of Oscar showed up inย my Timehopย todayโ€ฆ

A very pretty Thursday.

It’s Thursday. We’ve almost made it through another week…

Good morning from Northside…

Fast forward through the work day to the sunset this evening in our backyard…

Genifer made these turkey mushroom stuffed acorn squash for dinner…

And they were delicious! She always finds the best recipes to make.

After dinner, we went back out in our backyard to check on the sunset…

And then we took the dogs around the block. There was a big X is the sky…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, I was trying a different camera app. I was looking for an app that made it easier to control the contrast because I thought some of my photos have looked washed out lately. Now, these feel a little too dark. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

Later, we watched the Thursday night football game. While we were watching the game, I remembered something I heard one of the announcers say during last week’s Thursday night football game…

Last time I checked, points aid in oneโ€™s pursuit of a win when playing a game that a score is kept.

It totally sounds like something Joe Buck would say.

Today was also my 888th Timehop in a row…

And in my 888th Timehop in a row was one of my favorite gifts we ever received, our Cincinnati Reds All-Star Legacy Brick

We had another pretty good Thursday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿงฑโค๏ธ
