It was the best of times...

The past few days have been great. I had an amazing weekend which lead into a great start of the week. I spent Monday-Wednesday in Cincinnati with friends. Let's recap:
Monday: Got up, drove to Cincinnati. Once I arrived I met up with my bff Erin and we were able to grab breakfast at Panera before she had to rush off to work. I spent the majority of the afternoon at the Natural History and Science Museum with a friend and their family. 
We grabbed some lunch at one of my favorite places: 
Later that night we ended up going to Dave & Busters where a good time was had by all. 
(The bff Erin & La Doucher aka Jeff rocking out some GH)
Where we played games for hours and ended up leaving with new shot glasses earned from our ticket count. I don't remember too much of the car ride back but I'm pretty for sure I'm lucky to be alive. Never ever let a guy drive another guy's brand new bmw on the cinci beltway at night and it being a manual transmission. Ek!

Tuesday: I got to spend the day with someone fabulous at a fabulous place, known as the Cincinnati/Newport Aquarium. If you know me, then you know I love love love aquariums! The day was perfect! 

Wednesday: I sadly had to leave town. Major sad face. Before I had to travel back though, we made a pit stop to Jungle Jims (if you know anything about Cinci, this place is a MUST go to) and had lunch at Penn Station with my fabulous. 

So there you have my first 3 days of the week. Now....I'm just counting down until I get to hang out with peeps.

Oh my goodness, Jungle Jims! Did you go to the bathroom there? They have one of the top ten bathrooms in the country, no joke haha!

I'm really jealous of your trip-- it's making me miss home big time! Glad you had so much fun :)

I didn't want other people to think I was nuts for asking your about the bathrooms there, so here's this video about them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-LdHjGksvs&feature=fvw

I've got Jungle Jim's and German chocolate on my brain now, haha :)

Glad you had a good time. :) I've drove up to that aquarium a few times, and it never disappoints. Then again, I have a thing for aqariums too. I think I'd be pleased with a large fish tank. Lol. ;)

MG said...

Glad that you had a great trip!

And seriously, what's a road trip without a stop at Cracker Barrel? Sadly, it has been at least a year and a half since I have eaten at one. I think I need to remedy that!
