#TBT Pause for paws.

Remember that time when Milan and I were walking in downtown Cincinnati by P&G’s daycare, and Milan thought a plush dog in the window was a real dog?

Milan was the friendliest dog. Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎπŸ¦•β€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

The sky was so pretty this evening as the Metro 17 bus was crossing over the Mill Creek bridge into Northside…

And then later in the evening from atop the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Booksellers on Fountain Square.

I just saw that The Booksellers on Fountain Square is closing…

The Booksellers had the most wonderful children’s book section. Downtown Cincinnati is losing another great shopping option. This building alone at the corner of Fifth and Vine Streets has lost a Macy’s, Tiffany & Co, and now The Booksellers. If you need to run out to get a last minute gift, it seems that downtown has fewer and fewer options with each passing day. And that’s a real shame.Β  πŸ˜°πŸ“˜β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made lasagna for dinner tonight…

And there was garlic bread. I love garlic bread. The lasagna was really good too. It’s been a minute since we’ve had lasagna. πŸ˜€πŸβ€οΈ

Downtown details.

Looking up at Carew Tower from the corner of Fourth and Vine Streets in downtown Cincinnati on my way to catch the bus home. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Remembering Ernie Banks.

Five years ago, Cubs legend Ernie Banks passed away…

Mr. Cub was one of the greatest of all-time. πŸ˜°πŸ¦•πŸ»βšΎοΈβ€οΈ

Words of wisdom.

I just try to be kind and nice to everybody everyday because you don’t what other people are going through.Β  πŸ˜€πŸ‘β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared House Chef Express meals. This one was Cheesy Chimichurri Chicken with corn and potatoes…

It was a little on the spicy side. But it was another very delicious meal. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared House Chef Express meals a lot. πŸ˜€πŸβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

We were up and moving super early this morning. Genifer had to be to work early for a training academy that she helps run. We were up so early that the moon was still out when we were walking the dogs before we left for work…

It’s a shame too. I bet this was going to be a very pretty sunrise morning too. Oh well.
Good early morning from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ
