Travel: Cincinnati Reds Game

Mini road trip. Great American Ballpark. Cincinnati Reds. Formerly Cincinnati Red Stockings – aka first professional baseball team EVER. Busy traffic. Easy parking. Quality Bobbleheads. Breezy weather. Cold beer. Overpriced but delicious hot dogs. Swimming in peanut shells. Cute kiddo activities. 8 run Third Inning. Awesome Reds WIN. Ohio Proud.


Travel: The Greenbrier

Oh, I just love everything about The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. It is secluded, beautiful and historic. Annnd it’s magical.
Since I was a little girl, I have thought of this as the castle where my parents were married. I remember going there as a young child and being mesmerized by the hotel’s size and glamour.


Columbus Flea

I am a HUGE fan of Columbus Flea. More than 60 vendors frequented the Spring Flea 2013 at the new Seventh Son Brewery this past Sunday, including Homage, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Cafe Brioso, Royal Factory Atelier, Cap City Apparel, and Zebra Pie Gifts. Such a fun experience and I can’t wait for the next market (August 2013). Bring cash. Buy a flea bag.


I was so excited to try Knead and it did not disappoint. Voted Best New Restaurant by Columbus Underground and Columbus Monthly in 2010, this place uses all local ingredients from area farmers to make their fresh and delicious meals. My husband and I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the Strawberry Fields Forever salad and the Egg McJunkin sandwich.


Ohio State Campus

There are so many reasons of why I love The Ohio State University campus (did you know it’s the third largest college campus in the country and was also originally named the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College?!) but I will say, just walking around their campus is something my husband and I love to do at least once a week.
