Happy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! We both had the day off work. We used our BOGO coupon again this morning to get more delicious Biggby Coffee

We drove up to Monroe to check out Cincinnati Premium Outlets

They had FC Cincinnati gear at the Adidas store but it wasn’t discounted at all…

We didn’t find much at the Outlets. I got a scarf and a pair of boxers. We started to get hungry so we started to drive back towards Cincinnati and stopped to eat in Liberty Township at FlipSide in Liberty Center

We started with mini corn dogs on a stick…

I love corn dogs! Genifer ordered a hamburger without the bun. I ordered the Say Cheese cheeseburger and put too much mayonnaise on it…

It was a great lunch, the burger was really good and the fries were terrific. And they had this Sir Kensington ketchup that was just out of this world…

After we were done eating lunch, we walked through the shops in Liberty Center…

Genifer got a few things for our upcoming trip. I got a new pair of camo shorts. I’d worn my old camo short out over the last two summers. I’m really happy to have a new pair.

Later, we watched The Forest on Netflix. It was just turrible.

But we had a pretty fun President’s Day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Our Saturday.

This morning we got up early and went to Trader Joe’s and then to Kroger for groceries. Afterward, we stopped at Biggby Coffee for our weekend morning drinks…

It was kind of a sports Saturday. We watched Leicester draw with Chelsea, Xavier beat #10 Seton Hall, the second half of Wolves super boring draw with United, Michigan beat #25 Rutgers. And later, #23 Wichita State lost to Tulsa. The two underdogs we were cheering for won but the favorited Shockers lost and both of our soccer teams drew.

We finished watching 11.22.63 on Hulu. It was really good. We wished it would have kept going for more episodes. We started watching a new series on Netflix. This one isย  called The Stranger. It seems like another pretty good one. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Sunday Sunday Sunday.

This morning we got up early to go to get groceries from Kroger but first, we stopped for our Sunday morning Biggby coffee

Today, Genifer got a Hot Golden Honey Oat Milk Latte but she got it without the coffee…

We learned that if you order a latte without the coffee, it’s called a steamer. You really do learn something new every day. I got my Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with a little butterscotch added to it. I get the same thing every single time…

Later, we drove out to West Chester to have lunch at B-Dubs with Geri. I had to get my free snack sized wings for my upcoming birthday. Lunch was really good. I’m not fancy. I really like B-Dubs. And we came home and walked the dogs around the block…

And then we watched a couple more episodes of 11.22.63 on Hulu. But first, we just had to find a place on our own bed…

It was another pretty relaxing Sunday. Just the way we like it. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Another rainy Saturday.

This morning we woke up early again to head over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy busy on Saturday. The later it gets, the busier it gets. We usually try to get to Trader Joe’s as close to 8am when it open as we can. This morning was our best time
so far. We pulled into their parking lot at 8:02am…

I just thought that little berry bunny was pretty cute. We didn’t get any frozen chocolate cover strawberry pieces though. I wonder if they would be good?

After we were done getting groceries at TJ’s, we headed over to get our Saturday morning coffee at Biggby

Biggby is our reward for getting up and getting groceries out of the way. We both got hot chocolates this morning. Biggby had more student artwork on display on their walls. I really liked the hills with the watercolor skies…

The owl and the elephant were really great too…

And if we had a daughter and named her Niala…

She would be Niala Fiala. Maybe Niala could be a middle name.

Later, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

Taft’s had a new Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stout on tap…

And it was really delicious. We watched the Michigan-Illinois game on our little tablet. We shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

We also shared some of Taft’s chicken wings…

We had six buffalo wings and six Cherrywood BBQ wings…

I think I really like the Cherrywood BBQ the best. But they’re both really good. And even though, Michigan lost. Again. It was a great lunch. We just love Taft’s pizza and wings.

Later, we started watching a series called 11.22.63 on Hulu. It’s pretty good so far. And even though it was another rainy day, it was another pretty good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒจ๏ธโค๏ธ

Our Boxing Day.

Today was Boxing Day. This morning we watched Arsenal draw with Bournemouth in Mikel Arteta’s first match in charge of my favorite club.

After the match, we walked down to Django Western Taco for lunch. I had one of Chef Josh’s amazing fried chicken tacos. We also shared Django’s amazing jerk chicken quesadilla with some Django chips and salsa. And when we were done with lunch, we shared Django’s Belgian chocolate bread pudding…

Everything was really good, as always. But the bread pudding was just incredible. I’ve had a love affair with bread pudding ever since my second hip surgery. We had never tried Django’s bread pudding before. Now I’ll get it every time we eat at Django. Or every time I feel the need some amazing bread pudding.

After we were done at Django, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to Higher Gravity. We hadn’t been to HG in a quick minute. But JJVE gave us a gift card that we thought we would put to use a little bit before the start of the new year while we were still on our holiday break…

The best beer we tried in our taster flight this afternoon was Founders French Toast B@stard Scotch Ale

It was a pretty amazing beer. Very tasty. We watched our Leicester City get thumped by Liverpool. And while we were at HG, we bought our tickets for Higher Gravity’s New Year’s Eve Beer Bash.

Later, the sky was really pretty when we were walking the dogs. It’s not every day you see beautiful night-time clouds…

When we got back from our walk, I put my scarf on Oscar and I think he really liked it because he wore it around until we went upstairs…

And when we got upstairs, we watched some of The Witcher on Netflix. It was a pretty good Boxing Day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸฅŠโค๏ธ

Peaky Blinders is back on Netflix for a fifth season! And it looks amazing…

And I absolutely cannot wait to watch. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

A lazy Sunday.

We didn’t do a whole lot today. It was another pretty lazy Sunday. Even though we just had pizza yesterday, we ordered some delicious NYPD Pizza this afternoon…

And then we started binge-watching Peaky Blinders on Netflix…

Based on real-life Birmingham gangsters, Peaky Blinders is a stylish gangster family epic set in 1920’s Birmingham, England. and centersย around Tommy Shelby and his gang, The Peaky Blinders, who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps…

It’s a pretty amazing show. And there four seasons with a fifth in the works!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿงขโค๏ธ

NYPD & Chill.

Tonight, we just ordered some NYPD Pizza and started watching the second season of Stranger Things on Netflix…

It was the perfect Friday night!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Easing into the weekend.

I switched my Summer Hours with a coworker today so she didn’t have to use a half vacation day. So we didn’t get to go on any adventures. But we will next week. This evening we just ordered a large cheese pizza from NYPD Pizza...

And it was amazing. I had forgotten just how good a plain cheese pizza could be. We also got some delicious NYPD popcorn chicken as well…

Such good stuff. Afterwards, we watched some of the Reds game and a couple of pretty bad movies on Netflix. It was a really nice, low-key relaxing Friday.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŽฌโค๏ธ
