Thanks for Reading the Thursday Rundown

I love it how I am now able to write my blog posts while it is still light out. Another great part of spring! It is time for the latest Thursday Rundown…

Honoring My Student Worker – Yesterday evening, I was able to honor one of my student interns. Coastal Carolina University holds a yearly ceremony where graduating student-workers are honored. On Wednesday, Eddie (my intern) and I stood up in front of an audience of CCU employees and students as our Vice President for Student Affairs read what I wrote about him on the nomination application. Luckily, I will still have Eddie until fall commencement in December but it was a great opportunity for me to let him know that I really value the work he does.

Peace Pie – This past weekend, I had the pleasure of eating the best ice cream sandwich ever. I have a long history with cookie ice cream sandwiches as my mom used to make them for my elementary school classmates on my birthday. My craving for them has not dwindled over the years. While exploring downtown Charleston, we came across a tiny storefront advertising Peace Pies. What is a Peace Pie? It is an ice cream sandwich with two fresh cookies, ice cream, AND pie filling. Yup, I said pie filling. My mom and I split a peanut butter brownie Peace Pie. It was $6 but it was also really good.

If you are ever in Charleston, make sure to try a Peace Pie.

Sloan Photos – These might be some of the cutest Sloan photos yet. She will turn 6 weeks old tomorrow and it is amazing all the joy she brings our way.

I might be a little biased, but isn’t she cute??

Latest Segment – This semester, I created a special Instagram account (@ccustudentview) at Coastal Carolina designed for students to show what a typical day at CCU is like for them. Each week, a new student takes over the @ccucstudentview account to add a fresh flair. What have students shared? Has it been successful? I answer both questions on my latest Social Circle segment. To watch me in front of the camera, just click here.

If you dare, take time to watch my latest social media segment for our University news show.

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich – What do you eat when you go to a famous Southern restaurant known for its fried chicken, fried porkchops, and macaroni and cheese? Well, a peanut butter and banana sandwich of course! This past weekend I went with my parents and wife to Jestine’s, a popular eatery in Charleston. Sid and my mom both shot me a look of disgust when I ordered the sandwich but I had to go with what my tummy was telling me. It was delicious and I can’t wait until the next time arrives when I get to eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

Although you can’t really see it, next to the French fries is my peanut butter and banana sandwich.


Thank you for taking the time to read my latest blog post. Have a great rest of the month and I will touch base soon. Don’t Blink.
