Wardrobe Wednesday: Riverfest Edition

I spent the weekend hanging out with husband in Cincinnati, and if you want to know a secret… we were trying on the city for size.  Checking to see if it’s a nice fit for the two of us…

I must say, I felt a little bit like an odd ball without a cigarrette in hand… I swear, four out of five people were smokers.  Maybe it was just the holiday weekend…?  Not a big deal.  Just observations here.

So it’s off to Wicker Park and Bucktown this coming weekend.  No offense Cincinnati, but they’ll be pretty hard to beat!  Chicago is my number one choice for residence… but we’re exploring our options.

Oh, and for the record… I’m not a fan of Cincinnati funnel cakes.  They have a rather sour taste to them as compared to the Penn Dutch versions I’m used to.  And don’t worry, I think this is my last statement regarding funnel cakes until the next festival season!  So sad I will have to wait another year to taste the yummy goodness…

  2. Random, I was in Cinci this weekend! I wasn’t wild about it either. Chicago is DEF better, no question.

  3. My husband and I roamed the downtown area of Flagstaff this weekend, and I REALLY want to move there! It makes me want to go back to school and live in married housing and be a kid again! Oh, and I swear that Flagstaff is the dog capitol. I’ll bet that we saw as many puppies as you saw cigarrettes…i SO want a puppy now! Love your photos! Such a pretty dress!

    The smoking thing is because it’s on the border with Kentucky. One of Kentucky’s main exports is tobacco and you can smoke everywhere in that state. My first job out of college was in Louisville selling Russell Stove Candy, so I had a lot of grocery store and pharmacy accounts. Unbelievably, that was in 1994, you could smoke in the grocery store. It was disgusting. I don’t know if it is still that way, but it kind of bleeds into Cincinnati. I now live in San Antonio, but I grew up in Greenville OH and went to school at Miami. My friend Drew at Kitsch Cafe, also from Greenville, turned me onto your blog. Love it.
