A pretty good start to the weekend.

It’s Saturday morning so we got up early to go get more Biggby Coffee

This weekend we had a coupon for $1 off…

Genifer got a 20oz. Caramel Marvel latte and I got a 24oz. Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with some butterscotch flavoring added to it…

Biggby’s coffee is sooo good. When we got home with our Biggby coffees, we made some delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

What a great way to start a weekend. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Another low-key Sunday.

We got up early this morning to run over to get a few groceries from Trader Joe’s. And I became the mayor of Trader Joe’s on Swarm

And then, we stopped at Biggby again for weekend morning coffee

Genifer is the mayor of Biggby. We just had another pretty lazy day at home. I finished up my project for work. And we took the dogs on a few walks. On one of our walks, we found this little jazzy cool cat on the sidewalk that someone must have lost…

I set him on the base of one of the streetlights. I hope he can find his people again. We watched The Aeronauts on Prime Video. It was pretty good. It was just another pretty low-key Sunday. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ±β€οΈ

Weekends are always better when you don’t have to work on a bunch of stuff for work. But it’s also pretty nice to have the opportunity to work on some pretty big projects, even if the timelines are kind of ridiculous.

A rainy Cincinnati Saturday.

It was really warm this morning with temperatures hovering in the mid-60s. But it was supposed to rain all day. And it pretty much did.

Before it started raining this morning we got up and ran over to Biggby for weekend morning coffee

We saw on Biggby’s Instagram that they had a BOGO offer just for today…

My new favorite go-to drink is Biggy’s Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a little bit of butterscotch added to it. It’s a great drink. And I really prefer hot chocolate to coffee. The caffeine makes me feel too jittery.

We watched some of the soccer this morning. My favorite club, Arsenal drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace and my other favorite club, Leicester City lost to Southampton 2-1. The last time Leicester and Southampton played, Leicester thumped the Saints 9-0.

We hung out upstairs and I worked on some work stuff until the dogs let us know they wanted to go on another dog walk…

Later when it was time for the other football, we took the Taft’s gift cards we received for Christmas around the corner to the Brewpourium for some pizza and wings. Taft’s had a peanut butter version of their Maverick chocolate porter on tap…

And it was really terrific. We usually get Taft’s Cherrywood BBQ wings but tonight we tried their buffalo wings. And they really good too. Pretty spicy but really good. So good, in fact, we had already eaten half of the wings before I remembered to take a photo…

And we shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

Taft’s pizzas are so good! When we were leaving, the Brewopurium was getting crazy…

Apparently, there was going to be a comedy show in the back of the Brewpourium. When we got home, we walked the dogs around the block again in the rain…

We watched a pretty dumb movie on Prime Video and then fell asleep while we watched the rest of the other football playoff game. It was a pretty good Saturday. It would have better if I didn’t have to work on a bunch of work stuff. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸΎπŸ•πŸ”πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Dog’s heads get heavy.

This morning we ventured out early to get some Biggby Coffee and then we ran over to the grocery. I needed to get some more cold medicine because I woke up feeling under the weather again.

When we got home, we puttered for a bit and made a deep dish oven pizza for lunch. I took some cold medicine and went upstairs to watch the Michigan-Michigan State basketball game. Mack hopped on the bed next to me and promptly fell asleep with his head on my leg…

Dog’s heads get heavy. And Michigan lost. It was a pretty low-key Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸΎπŸ’€β€οΈ

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! We got up early this morning to get some Biggby Coffee

Genifer has been really liking their Peppermint Mocha Latte with almond milk and I’ve been all about the Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a shot of butterscotch. I also a big fan of Biggby’s sausage egg and cheese breakfast bagel sammich on an Asiago bagel. It’s really good stuff all the way around…

After Biggby, we went over to Rookwood Commons to do some last-minute shopping. We were mainly looking for some stuff for the dogs. But all I did was take photos of adorable stuff like these two characters…

How about caramel coffee flavoring in a penguin bottle wearing a winter hat?

Or a larger than life-sized plush penguin…

Oe a Triceratops sleeping bag…

I bought this sugar cookie ix because how cute is that little polar bear serving tray?

I like bears. After shopping, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket so I could get my Chicken Finger BLT. I really like Rusty Bucket and I love that chicken sammich. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk and then we were pretty lazy…

It was a pretty good Christmas Eve Eve…

And it’s been a really good break so far. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΎβ€οΈ

Artworks at Biggby Coffee.

We got up to get coffee this morning from Biggby Coffee. And there was a really neat display of kids’ artworks on the wall…

These two were my favorites…

I love little kids’ creativity. It’s truly inspiring. It made me want to go home and work on creating something beautiful. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨β€οΈ

College Hill Coffee Company.

This morning we set out to run some Saturday morning errands but first we stopped for coffee up in College Hill at College Hill Coffee Company

Genifer ordered a peppermint mocha and I got myself a hot chocolate with chocolate chip banana bread…

Our drinks were really good. There’s also all sorts of gift items and home goods and odds and ends in CHCC like these huge gourmet rice crispy treats…

And this adorable dinosaur hide & hunt puzzle dog toy…

And their menu looked really good too. We’ll have to come back up to College Hill Coffee Company for breakfast sometime very soon. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

We run on Dunkin.

We got up this morning to run some errands, and along the way we stopped to get some Dunkin in Finneytown…

I really like Dunkin’s Dunkaccino. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ©β€οΈ

 

Kitty’s Coffee on Fourth Street.

This morning we stopped at the new Kitty Coffee on Fourth Street

The space was kind of cold inside…

We both had caramel lattes. They were pretty good. But we think we’ll stick with our Sidewinder Coffee during the week. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

A Biggby Butter Bear please.

After we were done at Trader Joe’s, we made a Sunday morning stop at Biggby Coffee for a Butter Bear and a breakfast sammich…

We really like Biggby Coffee. A lot. πŸ˜€πŸ»β˜•β€
