Small Business Saturday

Yesterday I had the opportunity to run around with Ohiophotogrl will she did a scavenger hunt thru some of our local business for Small Business Saturday . It was really fun. We started off at The Coffee Hub to get fueled up and get our clues for what we needed to find.

The Coffee Hub has these really cool cookie and Ohiophotogrl girl told me that her extra Carmel Latte was the best she ever had! Then we were off!

We then went to Barney’s True Hardware, and found a few really cool ideas for Christmas presents as has to count the isles! Then over to Puzzles Plus.

We had to count the puzzles on the walls. We kept getting a different number. This one was a tough one but we think we got it right (wink, wink.) The next stop was Once Upon A Thyme Bookstore. It was a really fun place. We had to find the featured cookbook recipe.

It might be on the menu for next week :0) after there we hopped in the car and went to Central Carpet and Interiors. They had a scavenger hunt inside their store as well. They did the 12 days of Christmas theme. It was really fun walking thru the store and seeing all the really interesting decor and flooring stuff they have to offer their. They even have a family of beavers living there.

Next stop was Decoy Arts! Here we had to find the name of the biggest rooms! They have lots of ceramic things to paint and offer lots of classes to do different art things for all ages.

From there we went to Cape House Collectables! They store was full of the holiday spirit. This is me with their Christmas truck!

Then over to Knollwood Garden Center where we had some hot chocolate and enjoyed walking around and seeing all the neat things you can put on your Christmas tree and decorate your home this year.Ohiophotogrl loves this sign :0) then it was over to La Crique Boutique. This was a new store for us. They had clothing and accessories for every occasion. They two had a great truck for me to ride in!Next stop was a local favorite, The Pizza Dive!

Here we got cinnamon Sugar bites and all we had to do was hear a funny joke. The last stop on our adventure was This Old Couch. This is where we turned in our scant hunt paper. They had this really cool tray.

We had so much fun meeting the owners/staff of all these businesses. Can’t wait to do it again next year!

Wonder what where gonna do next?

Gardening

Spent yesterday morning and early afternoon looking for plants for the garden.

There are a lot to choose from. Let’s just say we picked up flowers for the front flower pots and some tomatoes for the pots on the porch. Not to mention some herbs. Last week we got some cucumbers and a few other things. I’ll have to make a full list.

Now I just need this weather to Cooperate! Are you planting a garden? What are you gonna put in yours?

Wonder what were gonna do next?

That was a trip!

As some of you saw in Facebook, I took a trip with Ohiophotogrl! We drove over to Missouri to see her cousin graduating from high school.

We started off all bucked in…

And I got to read the map along the way! We got out a few times to stretch our legs and we took a selfie.

I got to see the Arch in St Louis but only thru the car window…

Ohiophotogrl was driving so I took a better photo on the way back….

It was a really fun trip, but we are both glad to be home and to sleep in our own beds last night!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

It’s been 7 years

Today is my “Gotcha Day.” It’s the Day that Ohiophotogrl and I became best friends. She found me coming out of the ground. Here is a recap of that…

It was love at first site!

Thanks for being on this journey with us….rumor on the street we have a big adventure coming up….stay tuned!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

What’s cooking

So today Ohiophotogrl brought home some ready to bake cookies for us to make.

I put on my apron and laid the cookies on the cookie sheet while we preheated the oven to 350 degrees. Slid them on to the center rack and set a timer for 12 minutes.

MMMMMMMM fresh baked chocolate chip cookies for dessert tonight. But Ohiophotogrl stole one before we put them up for later…

Wonder what where gonna do next?

A birthday

My best friend Ohiophotogrl just had a birthday! We celebrated all weekend long. We saw a movie “The Fantastic Beast” and had lunch at Brio. Then we hung out a lot and had lunch the next day at a place called Penns Thia Grill.

Yummy!

Hope you all have a great thanksgiving!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

November 1st

Last night was trick or treat here I the 937. I couldn’t decide what to wear so I did costume changes.

Ok maybe more than a few but a Tator has to have options ya know! Hope you all had a safe and fun night last night. We had about 25 trick or treaters. Rain dampened the night but Ohiophotogrl has fun running around to all the neighbors to see what kind of candy they had….I’m not sure she will ever grow up. I think I’m ok with that!

Here is to a great November!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?
