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?

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?

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?

The bottom of the photo says Better….or worse. Now you know how I get my eyes checked lol

Oh The Places We Do Go

Last night Ohiophotogrl and I went to First Friday in the Oregon District. On the first Friday of every month all the shops are open till 9 or later and there are street performers and people playing music in the street. This month we checked out a place called 416 Dinner.

The have the most wonderful potato twists there that you will ever have! Ohiophotogrl got a grilled cheese that was quite yummy and our pal ScottyScouts got a veggie burger. MMMMM they even have a kids menu.

The place seats about 25-30 people I would guess but the owner came over and talked with us and the waitress did a great job as well. Pretty sure we have a new favorite place.

They have vegetarian options and they have gluten free desserts! You really should go check them out if your in downtown Dayton, Ohio. There actual location is 416 E 5th St.

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

I’m ready for spring

Yesterday I went with Ohiophotogrl to run some errands can come out to the car looking like this

So I drew this about my feelings about the snow.

Then Ohiophotogrl told me it would be ok because we have our plants growing and soon we would be able to put them in the garden.

But today we planted two fig tree starts!

Keep your fingers crossed!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

Before bed

I have a routine I like to do before bed. I like to wash my face

Brush my teeth

Brush my scalp

Then I curl up with Ohiophotogrl and we say our prayers before we close our eyes and go to sleep. What do you do before bed?
