Currently (June 2019) + Local Tourist (May 2019)

Posted June 5, 2019 by shooting in Cincinnati, Personal / 25 Comments

Currently is hosted by Anne at In Residence. I’m also finally doing my May 2019 Local Tourist post, since I was sick last week. I still don’t feel 100 %, but it’s not as bad as last week.

Currently (June 2019) and Local Tourist (May 2019) #ontheblog: Birthdays, Rob Lowe, and Flower Crowns! Click To Tweet

Currently: June 2019


Out the food that I want to serve at my birthday party later this month. We’re planning on grilling, but I also want some fun Harry Potter themed items since it is a Harry Potter party!


To the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati, Ohio to see Rob Lowe live in his show Stories I Only Tell My Friends. I’ll have a post about this soon, but I went with my dad as an early Father’s Day gift to him and it was so much fun. Definitely see if he’s coming near you if you’re a Rob Lowe fan!


That my pool can be fixed soon so I can finally go swimming. It has a small leak, so we’re trying to figure out where that is and get it patched. Thankfully it hasn’t been too hot yet, but once it gets warmer, I’m going to want to be in the pool as much as possible.


This awesome flower crown that I got to make at Bunbury this weekend – for FREE! I’ll have more about this in a future Bunbury post!


My birthday, which was on May 30. I was sick on the actual day, but I was still able to enjoy a Fuji Steakhouse dinner with my family and it was really good. Then it was Bunbury weekend, among other fun events which you’ll hear about soon.

Local Tourist: May 2019

I actually had quite an eventful May. That’s usually the case once Spring and Summer hit – a lot more events and fun things to do.

Friday, May 3: I went to a Harry Potter trivia night at this ceramics place with my sister. We painted HP themed pottery (including some wands) and played HP trivia, while eating and drinking fun HP themed goodies. I took a lot of pictures of the whole event, so I will have a full post about this soon. It was a lot of fun!

Samuel retweeted my tweet!

Thursday, May 9: I went to see Samuel J. Comroe at the Funnybone Comedy Club with my mom. If you don’t know/remember, Samuel J. Comroe was a comedian on the last America’s Got Talent. He has Tourette’s, so part of his routine is about that, but it’s not all of it. I think he’s hilarious, though forewarning that he cusses, a lot. I mention this because it surprises people at his shows who know him from AGT (and that’s a family show). My mom and I had a fantastic time!

Saturday, May 18: I went to the City Flea with my mom, sister, and my oldest niece. The City Flea is a flea market in Cincinnati though it’s more handmade stuff than recycled items. It’s a lot of fun, and I got a cool t-shirt.

Saturday, May 25: I went to the Taste of Cincinnati with my parents and my sister. It’s an annual festival in downtown Cincinnati with all. sorts. of. food. I can’t eat a ton because I’m gluten-free now, but I was still able to get a few things and we all had a nice time. The weather was really good as well so we weren’t dying of heat. There are musicians that play throughout the weekend too, so we got to enjoy some nice music.

Monday, May 27: My sister, a friend, and I attended a Cincinnati Reds Baseball game. I’m not really a baseball person, but it was still fun to hang out. My aunt sang the National Anthem and then God Bless America later in the game, so we got free tickets from her (she’s in a performance group in the U.S. Military).

Friday, May 31: Day after my birthday and the first day of Bunbury. I have one post about the musical act Poppy, and more to come!

How was your May? Any fun events coming up in June?

  1. You always make me miss Cincinnati! Bunbury and Taste of Cincinnati are two extra fun things about that area this time of year… extra fun that they are right around the time of your birthday!

  2. You have had a lot going on! No fun being sick on your actual birthday, but it sounds like you still have a pretty fun party planned! You can’t go wrong with a Harry Potter birthday! Taste of Cincinnati sounds like a super fun event!

  3. Dude/ what a fun month you’ve had!!! And I absolutely love love love your flower crown. So pretty! I wish they had a festival like that here; will have to check (tis the season, right??). Also I’ve heard that comedian and he’s hilarious: so neat you got to see him live. And that you’re going to see Rob Lowe! Can’t wait to hear about all of these events you’ve been going to lately and hope you’re having a fabulous week!

    PS: sorry to hear you were sick on the day of but happy belated birthday! Xo

  4. Happy belated birthday! I do hope you get the pool fixed. Best part of summer is being by or in the water. Hope you have a great time seeing Rob Lowe too!

  5. What an awesome birthday month Lauren! I absolutely love the flower crown, you look like a magical forest fairy. I can’t wait to see your upcoming Harry Potter post with the themed pottery. I absolutely love hearing about your adventures Lauren, you’re always up to something new and exciting and the variety of activities is brilliant!

  6. That’s interesting that Rob Lowe has a show like that – I’m intrigued! And it was fun to hear about your dance class experiences from your comment on my blog! Tap is so fun! I took it for a few months but then I got pregnant and quit once my balance became a joke with my changing shape!

  7. OOOOOHHHHHH I can’t wait to read about your time with Rob Lowe!! Love his books!! Have an awesome birthday party!! So glad to have found your blog!! Great book reccos on here!!

  8. A Harry Potter themed birthday sounds like so much fun! We did one for my daughter but it was more of a kiddie HP version. You are going to have so much fun!

  9. Umm…Rob Lowe in person?! That sounds like a treat. I love a great themed party and so fun to throw a party for yourself! We should all do that often!

  10. Sounds like you celebrated in a big way. Would love to see pics of the birthday party. The ceramic experience sounds like great fun. I had a magic wand in the library when I was still working. Granted wishes all the time with the caveat that some wishes don’t come true right away and other wishes come true in a way different than we expected.
    Hope you find the pool hole. We used soap, like liquid soap, I think to find a hole in something one time. PC says it was an inner tube. And we just kind of rubbed the inner tube with liquid soap and a bubble came up where the hole was. Not sure if that is an option for your pool but might work. Hope you are soon able to cool off in it!
