Champions!

This afternoon we drove over to the Westside to find Elder High School…

Our nephew, Liam’s St. Antoninus Jaguars were playing in the GCYL Division I Reserve Football League championship at Elder High School’s “The Pit” Elder Stadium…

Liam’s St. Antoninus team won 28-6, the same score they won by in the semi-final.  They won the championship and went undefeated on the season!

Congrats, Liam! 😀🏈❤️

On our way out of “The Pit,” we saw this terrific Lego replica of the stadium…

Pretty neat.

A Westside Saturday.

We were over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. And we stopped at Cancun Mexican Grill for lunch. Genifer had been wanting a quesadilla for a while now. We’ve eaten at the Cancun at Western Bowl. But we’ve never eaten at this Cancun location at Glenway Crossings before…

It’s surprisingly big on the inside…

Genifer ordered her quesadilla…

I got a ground beef Chimichanga. It’s hidden under all that sour cream…

See? There it is…

At the end of the day, it didn’t really hit the spot. Genifer didn’t really care for her quesadilla and my Chimi just tasted like sour cream. Bummer. On our way back home, we decided to stop and finally check out West Side Brewing

It was a surprisingly big place as well…

We stopped to try their Pumpkin Spice Infusion

It was their amber ale run through a contraption to infuse the beer with vanilla and some sort of “pumpkin spice mix.” It was pretty good.

All and all, everything was just okay. But that’s why you try new things. Sometimes they’re awesome and sometimes they’re just okay. That’s how you know. 😐🇲🇽🌮🎃🍺❤️

A Roost + Putz’s + ceiling fans.

This afternoon we ran over to Lowe’s on the Westside to get a ceiling fan for our front bedroom on the second floor of our house. On our way back home, we stopped at Ron’s Roost for lunch…

Ron’s Roost has some amazing chicken. And then we stopped at Putz’s Creamy Whip for malts. We’ve lived in Northside all this time and never stopped at Putz’s…

Ohmigosh. I love Butterscotch malts so much. They’re my favorite. When we got home, we installed our brand new ceiling fan…

And then we watched a movie upstairs with the dogs who were waiting for us…

We had a good weekend. 😀🐔🍦🐶❤️

Saturday morning errands.

This morning we got up and moving and headed over to Trader Joe’s in Kenwood…

We love Trader Joe’s. We’ve become kind of obsessed with their stuff especially their Mandarin Orange Chicken. It’s better almost every takeout Chinese food that we’ve had. And it’s only $4.99. It’s so dang good.

Then we stopped by the new At Home store in Norwood…

I felt like I was in that last scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark

From there, we headed out to The West Side to collect our taxes. We got money back on the federal but we owed the state and city. But we came out ahead. After we got our taxes, we stopped into Menier’s Fine Meats…

I wanted to try their World Famous Chicken Salad

We a little container of the chicken salad (it was awesome), a little bit of their pasta salad and a couple of these awesome buffalo chicken egg rolls…

Meiner’s has really great stuff. And their meats looked out of this world. We’ll have to go back when it’s a little bit warmer outside when we can grill a bunch of stuff. After we were done at Meiner’s, we stopped a BDubs to share some boneless wings for lunch…

Oh, and mini corn dogs. I love their mini corn dogs…

On the way home from The West Side, we saw this sign for Chester’s Chicken at a Shell gas station on Boudinot…

That chicken is so darn cute. I wonder how the chicken is? It was a really good Saturday morning. We got a lot accomplished and we were still home by one o’clock.

BDubs & Brink Brewing.

After dropping off our taxes, we stopped at BDubs on The Westside for lunch…

I think their mini corn dogs are one of the best things around…

Genifer ordered garlic parmesan boneless wings…

And a side of fries…

I had the buffalo chicken sammich…

After we were done with lunch, we stopped at Brink Brewing in College Hill…

Brink always has some pretty awesome beers…

Great lunch and great beers make for a great Saturday. 😀🐔🍺❤️

It’s a sign.

We dropped off all of our tax stuff to our accountant this morning…

And this sign was on the deli right next door to our accountant…

World famous, huh? Now I feel like I have to try it when we go back to finalize our taxes. 😀🐔❤️

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. 😀🎃❤️

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. 😀🌻❤️

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. 😀⚾️⬅️❤️
