#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop today…

I’m guessing that Oscar must have got his haircut a year ago. And there was this one of Oscar using my hat and a TV remote as a pillow…

And this photo of Milan also popped up in my Timehop this morning…

His eyes were so green and so pretty. Always remembering the good times with the bud dog. 😀🐾🦕❤️

Happy birthday, FC Cincinnati!

Three years ago today, it was announced that FC Cincinnati was getting a USL soccer team. I remember being stunned and then incredibly excited by the news that there was going to be professional soccer in Cincinnati. And that it was going to be played right in our backyard at Nippert Stadium on the campus of the University of Cincinnati…

We were so excited! We went to Rhinehaus in OtR to meet one soccer idols, John Harkes who was named head coach of the Queen City’s fledgling soccer team…

Happy birthday, FC Cincinnati! It’s been an amazing three years of USL soccer! 😀⚽️❤️

Pause for paws.

This morning these adorable photos popped up in my Timehop of Oscar looking out our bedroom window across at our next door neighbors roof…

He was on the lookout, always keeping a watchful eye out for squirrels…

Oscar’s so funny. And so dang cute. 😀🐾🦕❤️

Baseball is…

This popped up in my Timehop today…

It doesn’t matter how good or how bad the Reds get, we still always have the Reds game on whenever they’re playing. Maybe it was growing up a Cubs fans. And watching the Cubbies struggle year after year, summer after summer, season after season. There’s something so familiar about cheering for the underdog.

But win or lose, we’ll always love our Reds. 😀⚾️❤️

Some photos of a very fuzzy Oscar popped up in my Timehop today…

He must have got his hair cut 2 years ago today. 😀🐾❤️

Home sweet home.

Welcome. Home sweet home. It’s always really good to be home. 😀🐻🦉❤️

Three years ago…

Tonight was the MLB All-Star Game. With every All-Star Game, I’ll always think back to all the fun we had with the festivities that led up to the MLB All-Star Game three years ago when Cincinnati hosted the mid-summer classic…

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop.  😀⚾️⭐️🦕❤

Two years ago…

Two years ago tonight, we went to watch our fledgeling new boys, FC Cincinnati play their very first international friendly against Premier League mainstay, Crystal Palace FC right in our backyard at Nippert Stadium…

There were so many highlights from that inaugural season of FC Cincinnati soccer. But the friendly against Crystal Palace at Nippert Stadium was definitely one of the top highlights of the inaugural season for me. Thanks again for reminding us of all the wonderful memories, Timehop.  😀⚽️🦕❤

A little bit of Timehopping.

I can’t believe it’s already July. Where does the time go? It sure does seem to go faster and faster, that’s for sure. I was looking at my Timehop this morning. Two years ago today, we moved the very last of our stuff out of our little apartment downtown…

And we were just starting to get situated in our new big house in Northside…

Three years ago, downtown Cincinnati was ramping up for the MLB All-Star Game…

And four years ago, the United States Men’s National Team bowed out of the 2014 World Cup in that epic match against Belgium where United States goalkeeper Tim Howard stood on his head in goal to make 16 saves in one match. It was really something to see. A rollercoaster of emotion. But hats off to Tim Howard! The match could have easily ended 5 or 6 to Belgium…

Thanks for the wonderful memories, Timehop! 😀🦕❤

Seen and noted.

I don’t remember where we were but one of the grocery stores built a Cookie Monster out of a couple of kiddie pools to sell… well, bags of cookies…

That’s pretty creative. Thanks for the fun memories, Timehop! 😀🦕❤
