Happy National Chili Dog Day!

We stopped at Skyline in Clifton on the way home from work to get some delicious Skyline cheese coneys for dinner tonight to celebrate National Chili Dog Day

I wanted my cheese coneys to look like this when I got them home…

But instead, they looked like this. They looked kind of sad. But they still tasted delicious! So we’ll just say they looked as pretty as these. 😀🧀🌭❤️

Fourth of July fireworks.

Once again this year, our neighbors a few streets over from us shot off a bunch of Fourth of July fireworks which we got to enjoy by just looking out of third-floor bedroom window…

We decided to call this their grand finale even though we could still hear fireworks going off around our house until well after midnight…

I think it’s really neat when you don’t even have to leave your house to watch a pretty impressive display of Fourth of July fireworks. 😀🎆❤️

Happy Fourth of July.

Happy Independence Day, everybody! We hope you have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July and get to see some fireworks too. 😀🇺🇸❤️

ps. Here’s some Fourth of July trivia from the Smithsonian.

It’s a sign.

Happy Father’s Day. 😀👏❤️

Slow down and grill.

Genifer’s mom came over this afternoon with a whole bunch of good stuff for us to throw on the grill for a Memorial Day cookout including these amazing steaks…

It was one of the best charcoal piles I think I’ve ever made so we started throwing everything we could find on the grill because it was cooking so nice…

YUM! Oh my gosh, what a meal! Those steaks were outstanding! 😀🥩❤️

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Star Wars Day!

May the Fourth be with you. 😀✨❤️

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER! We had a very nice Easter Sunday. Genifer made me this really sweet little Easter basket…

We got a wonderful Easter card from JJVE with some terrific artwork from Violette…

Here’s a photo Jeannette sent of Violette with her artwork and the bunny she drew us…

And here’s a photo Josh sent of Violette with her bunny. It was the bunny we sent her from Happy Groundhog Studio

Later, Genifer’s mom came over and my parents came down from Michigan for the night on their way out east to do some antiquing and they brought some delicious Pizza King pizzas down with them…

YUM! Pizza King pizza is sooo good. My mom also brought down a very delicious cherry cobbler. It was a very nice surprise to get to spend Easter evening with my parents and Genifer’s mom. It turned out to be a really nice Easter. 😀🐰🐣❤️

On a personal note, I need to take more photos when people come over or when we do things with other people. I need to make more of a conscious effort to make sure I take at least one photo of everyone together. I really need to do a better job of that. I just 😀📷❤️

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY! We walked across Northside to Boswell’s late this afternoon…

We met up our friends Chris and Tayler at Boswell’s. Genifer and I shared some delicious Bos Bites smothered in Bos sauce…

Genifer had a Super Grill and I had a Reuben. Both were delicious. Genifer’s green was her Golden Girls Sophia pin…

From Boswell’s, we walked over to Higher Gravity…

And there were some Irish Car Bombs…

We watched our FC Cincinnati win their first game of the 2018 season 1-0 away to Charleston Battery. We ended up hanging out at Higher Gravity to watch Michigan’s miraculous madness last-second 64-63 win over Houston to advance Michigan to the Sweet Sixteen. After the game, Michigan head coach John Beilein’s locker antics were pretty awesome. It was an amazing ending to a great day…

Yep. It was a pretty great St. Patrick’s Day! 😀🍀🍻❤️

More Happy Pi Day!

Genifer brought home pie from O-Pie-O in East Walnut Hills for dinner tonight…

This is a slice of O-Pie-O’s Greek Quiche. It was pretty outstanding. She also brought home a slice of their lemon pie for dessert. And it was incredible as well…

There were so many delicious pies today. I wish we could have Pi Day every day. They should really extend Pi Day to Pi Week instead because I would have liked the pie to go on forever.  😀🥧❤️
