Pause for paws.

After Genifer left this morning, the dogs couldn’t figure out why I was still home and she wasn’t. They sat by the door waiting for her to come back…

Later, we hung out in the backyard for a couple of hours…

After then we went upstairs so Oscar could take a nap…

Mack sat by the window and watched the world outside…

It was pretty awesome to have a boys day with the dogs. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

Here’s the original photo I took…

And here’s how it looked after I ran it through the ol’ Instragram filters…

Big fun Saturday.

I’m not exactly sure how it happened but this afternoon we ended up at BJ’s Brewhouse at Rookwood Commons for lunch…

Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong with BJ’s. BJ’s has some really good stuff. We just never really eat there. We’ve been to BJ’s a couple of times back during the NFL playoffs. They had a pretty killer happy hour on Sundays during football season. But that’s the only time we’ve really been here. Yet, today we stopped in for lunch…

Their Tatonka Stout is pretty good, as is their PM Porter. We started with these little stuffed mushrooms. They were really tasty but could have been a little bigger…

BJ’s menu is ridiculously large. If you can think of it, chances are it’s probably on BJ’s rather extensive menu. Genifer got their BJ’s classic chicken sammich

I had BJ’s hand-pulled turkey dip

BJ’s had some delicious stuff. It was a really good lunch. After lunch, we met our friend Tayler at Overlook Lodge in Pleasant Ridge for a drink. Every time we’re at Overlook, I always notice more details. This place is so neat…

But this video was the clincher. Soooo freaking cool. Little details make things amazing. Speaking of amazing… we stopped at Share Cheesebar in PRidge after Overlook…

We got some of the most incredible cheese from Cheesebar. But I don’t remember what it was called. And that’s a shame. We also got this incredible Pimento Cheese…

Holy cow, I love pimento cheese spread!

It was another really fun Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ§€β€οΈ

Good evening form Northside.

We got home and took the dogs on a walk, ate some chili and then the dogs wanted to go in the backyard. When I looked in our backyard, we saw the most incredible sunset…

It was one of the prettiest sunsets I think we’ve seen from our backyard. Good evening from Northside.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Good evening from our backyard.

Later, we took the dogs out on a walk. I love the hill at the end of our street, especially at night. It’s so pretty…

Good evening from our backyard. And good evening from Northside.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎβ€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

Our back patio.

After loading up on mosquito repellent, we hung out on our back patio this evening…

We love our back patio except for all the mosquitos.Β πŸ˜€πŸ‘β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

When we sit out on our back patio and Genifer goes inside for something, Oscar and Mack both immediately sit down and stare at the door…

And then she comes back and they go about their business. They’re pretty silly.Β πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Hello praying mantis.

When we were sitting out on our back patio, a praying mantis appeared out of nowhere and started climbing up the side of my water bottle…

It was kinda crazy to have a praying mantis just wander by and say hello.Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦—β€οΈ
