Burgers on a Sunday?!

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

And we stopped for java whips at Mad Llama

Good morning from Northside…

Later, we walked down to Gulow Street for cheeseburgers this evening…

We love this wall of paintings at Gulow Street. And this is what we’re want to replicate in our dining room and why we went to Waynesville looking for paintings….

The burgers at Gulow Street have to be in the running for some of the best in all of Cincinnati…

Just look at all that deliciousness…

Amazing burger.

Good evening from Northside…

Gulow Street burgers make any day a pretty terrific day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŽˆโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

The Olympics are over.

This morning we ran over to the grocery…

They had the panda and train on-shelf today…

And we stopped for coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs round the block…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate this sausage alfredo flatbread for lunch…

Our HelloFresh arrived today…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner, we ordered takeout from China Food…

China Food is so good. And then we sat out of our back patio and watched the end of the Olympics.

After 16 days, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics came to a close. The USA volleyball team won gold in the final event of the games to top China in the gold medal count and finish on top of the overall medal overall. The USA secured 21 overall medals in the final weekend to finish out the Olympic spectacle with 25 more medals than any other country. Itโ€™s been an exciting two weeks of lasting Olympic memories. And the pageantry of closing ceremonies was a spectacle of its own.

But between the time difference, repetitive programming, and the endless re-airing of events, these Olympics were the most exhausting, challenging and frustrating to try to watch. And while NBC tried to create an immersive and watchable experience, the modern world of social media shattered the old model of replaying and re-airing events.

Luckily for us fans of the Olympics, there are two positives about the next go-around. There’s only a three-year wait until the Paris Games. And they should provide an daytime schedule of live events. No matter what happens in 2024, it canโ€™t get much worse than the much-missed Tokyo spectacle.

Still, we did the best we could to enjoy the heck out the Tokyo games. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

Two HelloFresh meals in one day?

Good morning from Northside…

We had one of our HelloFresh meals leftover from last week. So we had Brown Sugar Bourbon Chicken Salad with kale, apples, roasted carrots, sunflower seeds and honey dijon dressing…

After work, I ran over to the Kroger by our house to grab a couple of things. And look at the huge balloon options the neighborhood Kroger had…

For dinner tonight, we had our first HelloFresh dinner of the week. This one was One-Pan Trattoria Tortellini Bake with a crispy parmesan panko topping…

It was delicious especially since we added garlic bread to the meal…

The HelloFresh meals are so good.

Good evening from Northside…

I could get used to eating two HelloFresh meals every day. It made our Monday really very tasty. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Pineapple IS a pizza topping.

Early this morning, we got up and ran over to the grocery…

Kroger had both pandas and trains today in the international aisle…

And Kroger always has the best balloons.

Afterward, we stopped at Mad Llama for some java whips…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Later this afternoon, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Taft’s house salad is terrific…

Today, Taft’s had a special Hawaiian pizza…

Anyone who says pineapple isn’t a pizza topping clearly hasn’t had a Hawaiian pizza because they are delicious. We finished all of it while we watched more Olympics…

We used some more of our Taft’s gift card. And we still have a little bit of our gift card left. It’s been the gift that keeps on giving. We love Taft’s.

And good evening from Northside…

We had a great Sunday and a great weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Just a low-key Monday.

We both had today off work…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I always like to check out the different balloons…

And then it was time for coffee…

Later, we had sausages and pasta salad for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

We got some NYPD calzones for dinner…

It had been a minute since we had NYPD calzones. They were so good. We both ate our entire calzone. And then we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

It was a pretty nice, very low-key Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Another Monday.

Dang. And it was ANOTHER overcast and rainy morning…

It was perfect weather for a Monday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Did I mention it was sprinkling this morning?

Genifer went to the grocery this morning and brought home these…

Our sidewalk had lots of berries on it this morning…

And it was still overcast this evening…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one wasย Cheddar Tortilla Chicken with pepper and potato hash…

It was another great meal.ย We really like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.ย After dinner, we hung out on our back patio of a bit…

Tonight, we started watching Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. We made it through another Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Happy Memorial Day!

Today was Memorial Day…

Thank you to all the brave men & women who protect and serve our great country…

We got up early this morning to run over to the grocery…

And we got coffee…

We took the dogs on their morning walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We trimmed our front yard grass…

Geri came over for lunch. And Genifer made Skillet Pineapple BBQ Chicken

It was delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. And there was Carvel’s original ice cream cake…

We hung out in our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

We have some more blooms in our front yard…

It was so pretty today, we hung out on our back patio for the rest of the evening…

We had a very nice Memorial Day and a wonderful long holiday weekend.

Mondays.

I had a busy morning of meetings and we get didn’t take the dogs on their morning walk until later. When we did take them out, I left my phone on the desk in our office studio. And that’s a bummer because it was a very pretty morning. But it was also very pretty this evening as well…

Good evening from Northside but I forgot my little fisheye lens tonight…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one wasย French Onion Beef Meatloaf with peas and peppersโ€ฆ

It was another great meal.ย We really like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot. And even though it was a super busy work day, it was a pretty good Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Sunday funday.

We ran over to the grocery store early this morning even before we walked the dogs…

And then we stopped for Biggby Coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from morning…

We headed down to The Banks to go to our fourth Reds baseball game of the season…

We got a DORA drink before heading into the ballpark…

Welcome to the Great American Ball park…

Our tickets were in our favorite section of the ballpark, The Fioptics District…

Apparently, Fountain Square has a new stage…

We walked up to Queen City Radio in OtR to see if they had their amazing Whip burgers. They did not. So we hopped in an Uber and stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern…

And then we came home to hang out in our backyard for a bit with our new little lights…

And while we were sitting out on our patio, we watched the Grizzlies win game one of their first round best of seven against the Utah Jazz.

It was a terrific Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ’กโค๏ธ

Super pink moon.

And we were back at it on another Monday morning…

At least the sun’s out this morning. And that makes it a good morning from Northside…

We made it through another Monday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Wild Mushroom and Steak Risotto with broccolini and tomatoes…

It was another great meal. I could have eaten that risotto for the rest of the week. After dinner, we played in the backyard for a little while…

Tonight, there was a 99.4% full moon. It was the first of two super moons this year

This year weโ€™ll be treated to two super moons. The first was tonight and the second will be on May 26.

Super moons are bigger and brighter than your average full Moon. This super pink moon didn’t actually look super pink, or pink at all really. The moon was its usual color, just a very bright white as it moved across the sky!

I really like the super moons.๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐ŸŒ•โค๏ธ
