Everybody Wants to Be A Cat!


Coming back to Cincinnati, I always find something new I need to try. I've been obsessed with US 50 as a roadway since high school and it is my lifelong goal to drive the entire distance, just not all at once. I've so far drive from mid-Maryland to St. Louis Missouri and then for a portion of it over in Sacramento. Anyhow, this is all only important because as we were driving along it in Cincinnati (our old home is off of it), we pass a brand new micro-brewery called Fifty West Brewing Co. and I pretty much freak out about it. 20 minutes later, there we are enjoying a flight of beers and complimentary pretzels and beer cheese. Pretty much the best place ever - you can read more about it here.


After a nice beer, we rushed down the road to the Rookwood to enjoy Grippo's seasoned fries with Becki & Jeremiah. Basically, Becki & I are amazing. We planned to wear our adorable cat dresses (yes, I do these things with my friend) and take photos in really public places while people stare at us. Because life is better when you can smile and be a little crazy. Plus, I think this really shows off how adorable and flattering this dress is on everyone. I wish I could have it in all different animal prints. Also, a good portion of these photos are also taken at Hofbrauhaus, where we enjoyed lunch. AKA I had a LOT of beer and pretzels all day. I feel like that's all I eat when I'm in town anymore.
