Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Milk & Mocha Bear and Brown & Cony Life. πŸ˜€πŸ»πŸ°πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

Hooray! It’s Friday.

Dang. Yet another grey morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started work, we ran over to Kroger for some groceries…

Have you seen these digital advertising strips on the displays at the end of the aisles?

I should have taken a video of them. But I’ve been yelled at so many times for taking photos in Kroger that I get a little gun shy. They were fully animated with varied advertising messages. They were really cool. But they weren’t nearly as cool as these monster candles…

Kroger had the panda and the train again today in the international aisle…

And they had fun unicorn balloons

Seen and noted were these Wendy’s Baconator Pringles chips…

They don’t sound good to me. But what about some Halloween candy?

Why wouldn’t there be Halloween Reese’s Cups pumpkins in the grocery on July 31st?

We had delicious BLTs for dinner…

We’ve been on a real BLT kick lately. Probably because BLTs are so delicious.

And this evening it was still grey…

Good evening from Northside…

Thank goodness, We made it through another week. Bring on the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

 

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Northside! Oscar could sense something amiss in the air…

It was time to break out Oscar’s dinosaur costume. We were happy that he got to wear his adorable dinosaur costume for a little bit…

These pictures really don’t show it but Oscar gets so mad when he has to wear his Halloween costume. We got a few photos and then it came right off. He wears his dinosaur costume just long enough to get a photo every year…

We tinkered briefly with the idea of handing out candy tonight. But it was sooo cold and sooo rainy that we decided to go to Taft’s Brewpourium to eat delicious pizza and BBQ chicken wings…

Going to Taft’s Brewpourium on Halloween is kind of becoming a yearly tradition. We did the same exact thing last year to have a Taft’s Gourd to Death

Taft’s pizza is so delicious. Eating pizza was a much better idea than sitting out in the cold and rain, handing out candy to strangely dressed children. We sat there at Taft’s just stuffing our faces full of pizza and BBQ wings while we watched our birds-eye view of our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

Not surprisingly, there weren’t a ton of people out and about. Thanks for all the great memories, Timehop!Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ¬πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

We need to do better.

Next year, we really need to do a better job with our Halloween decorations. People in our neighborhood decorate their porches with Halloween lights…

And people on our street hang scary ghost skeletons along with their lights…

We really need to step up our Halloween game next year. πŸ˜€πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜ΆπŸ‘Ÿβ€οΈ

Trick-or-treat.

Last year, the weather was beautiful for trick-or-treating. This year, it was cold and raining for trick-or-treating tonight in Cincinnati. So instead of sitting on our front porch and handing out candy, we went to Taft’s Brewpourium. They were doing a promotion with their delicious Gourd to Death brown ale…

And we shared some pizza and garlic knots…

We watched our third-floor OscarCam while ate pizza…

There were a surprising number of kids out treat-or-treating even with it being cold and rainy. When we got home, we took the dogs out for a walk. It was surprisingly quiet around the neighborhood…

And there were some good jack-o-lanterns on our street…

We hope everyone had a safe and fun trick-or-treating. We really enjoyed our Halloween. Maybe we’ll hand out candy next year if the weather is better. πŸ˜€πŸŽƒπŸ•β€οΈ

Seen and noted.

Downtown Cincinnati’s Wood Hardware is all in the Halloween spirit…

And we picked up a couple of pumpkins for our front porch…

Now we’re in the Halloween spirit.Β πŸ˜€πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

You saw it here first.

It’s August 1st. And the CVS downtown has Halloween Candy out on the shelves…

August 1st. Please stop rushing my summer. Thank you.Β πŸ˜€πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

After trick-or-treating was over, we took Oscar on a walk…

And there was a pretty big Halloween moon over Northside…

Spooky.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒπŸŒ”β€οΈ

Trick-or-treat!

Tonight, we handed out candy to about 95-ish trick-or-treaters. It was down a little bit from last year’s Halloween when we had well over 100 little ghosts and ghouls visit our house. Luckily, we bought a bunch of candy to hand out…

And when we were done, we onlyΒ had a handful of candy leftover. But don’t worry, we had some extra candy stashed away for us to enjoy afterward. We hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween with got lots of candy!Β πŸ˜€πŸŽƒπŸ‘»πŸ¬β€οΈ

ps. And Oscar didn’t have to wear either one of his Halloween costumes this year.
