Holtman’s Donuts West Chester.

We found ourselves out in West Chester this morning so we stopped to get a little box of delicious Holtman’s Donuts

YUM! Holtman’s has some of the best donuts around Cincinnati. 😀🍩❤️

Seen and noted.

They really do make pumpkin spice everything. Don’t they…

And then there was this…

I just don’t know what to say. There’s a very good reason we don’t go to Walmart very often. At all. 😀🎃❤️

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers.

Back when we first stumbled across Finneytown, we drove by this place called Freddy’s Frozen Custard &Steakburgers. I had never heard of Freddy’s Steakburgers before. But apparently, it’s a chain founded in Wichita, Kansas in 2002 with over 300 locations. Who knew? It wouldn’t have really stood out to me except for the giant PATTY MELTS on the side of the building. And I really love patty melts. Genifer said that someday when we were in Finneytown again, we could stop and check Freddy’s out and someday turned out to be today…

Genifer ordered a cheeseburger…

And of course, I ordered a patty melt…

It was really good stuff! Their patty melt was delicious and I loved their famous jalapeno fry sauce. Afterwards, we shared a Dirt ’n Worms mini concrete with Freddy’s creamy vanilla custard, Oreo cookies, gummi worms, topped whipped cream and a cherry. It was also really good. But I completely forgot to take a photo of it before we starting digging in. And it was really good too. I can’t wait until we head back to Freddy’s again, hopefully in the very near future. 😀🍔❤️

Running some errands on the Westside.

We ran some errands over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. Genifer got a new Fitbit Versa from Best Buy. We stopped to say hi to Genifer’s brother’s family. And we stopped at Aldi for some groceries…

It’s the first time I’ve ever been to an Aldi. I was kind of surprised how much good stuff they had at Aldi. We picked up a few things for the week including this oven pizza…

For just an oven pizza, it was really good. Who knew Aldi had such good stuff? 😀🍕❤️

Seen and noted.

We always chuckle at this flower pot family whenever we head over to the Westside…

Every time was pass it, it’s always different. But it’s always equally elaborate. We always wonder what the backstory is and how it all got started. No matter what the story is, it always entertains us. And gives us a good chuckle as we shake our heads as drive by. Oh, the things people do to entertain themselves. 😀🌻❤️

Eating good in the neighborhood.

We haven’t eaten at an Applebee’s in forever. I really don’t know why. I guess there are just so many other options out there. Better chain options. And even better non-chain options. We stumbled across an Applebee’s in Finneytown and for whatever reason, we stopped there today for lunch. Genifer had this Chicken Fajita Rollup

And I had this Riblet Basket and added a skewer of grilled shrimps…

Both of our lunches were surprisingly good. Nothing we’d be rushing right back for, but yet surprisingly good. Just thought we’d share. 😀🍎❤️

They’re our best friends too.

This morning we picked up Oscar and Mack from Best Friends. And they had Oscar’s and Mack’s photos on the TV in their lobby…

I think Mack had a lot of fun over the weekend. Because he didn’t want to leave. It was either that or he really hates riding in the car. Maybe a little bit of both. He has a lot of anxiety about rididng in the car. Have I mentioned how much I like the people at Best Friends? They’re pretty awesome. 😀🐾❤️

Pause for paws.

This morning Best Friends sent us a couple of photos of the buddies playing outside…

Best Friends is a pretty awesome place. 😀🐾🌈❤️

Best Friends.

This morning we dropped the buddies off at Best Friends to play for the weekend…

Best Friends is the nicest pet boarding spot I’ve found, and the people there are so nice. Oscar doesn’t really like being around a lot of other dogs so we got him the Individual Play & Stay with private walks and one-on-one time with people. Mack loves socializing and playing with other dogs so we got him Group Play & Stay. I hope our guys had a good time there this weekend. 😀🐾🌈❤️

They guys seemed pretty tuckered out when we picked them up Monday morning.

Westside Sunday.

We had to run some more errands this afternoon and we found ourselves once again on the Westside of Cincinnati. And that was cool with us because we got to catch a little bit of Genifer’s nephew’s baseball game…

I think we’re good over on the Westside for a minute. 😀⚾️⬅️❤️
