First Ever Halloween Thursday Rundown

Happy Halloween! The last time that Halloween fell on a Thursday was in 2013 and I did not write a Thursday Rundown that day. So, that means this is my first ever Halloween Day Thursday Rundown. Oh my, the pressure!!

Preparing For a Long Night – Our neighborhood is insane on Halloween. Think of a Halloween movie that shows a daytime, over-the-top trick-or-treating scene because that is where we live. Children in the Myrtle Beach area come from near and far to trick-or-treat in our hood, numerous lawn parties take place, and the flashing lights of police cruisers illuminate the streets. We will undoubtedly run out of candy sooner rather than later but there is little we can do––even if we raided the Hershey’s factory I doubt we would have enough to satisfy the crowds we will soon see.

Sidney and Sloan hanging out on the driveway on Halloween night in 2018.

Please, Mommy – Passing out candy in our neighborhood on Halloween is an experience but actually trick-or-treating in it is too! Because Sloan has already attended three different trunk-or-treats and accumulated a lot of candy, Sidney floated the idea of having her sit tonight out. Thankfully, she listened to my pleas and will allow Sloan to have one last trick-or-treating hurrah as Peppa Pig. I had to reason that the previous functions were just tune ups for the main event and that her daddy would be just a tad disappointed if he didn’t get to trick-or-treat too. My understanding wife conceded! Peppa Pig and her child-like father will be on the streets tonight.

Sloan participated in her third trunk-or-treat event on Tuesday night. It was hosted by the Spadoni College of Education (Coastal Carolina University). Her best friend, Jacqueline, participated too.

Another Pig in the Family – Sloan isn’t the only person in our family dressing up as a pig for Halloween. Sid joined her fellow fourth grade teachers by dressing as a pig to fit the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf theme. Don’t they all look great? When Sloan saw Sid in her costume, she said “Oooohhh you’re Mama Pig!” (a character from “Peppa Pig”). Not exactly, but I guess it works.

Sid (on the far left) dressed up as a pig to fit the Three Little Pigs and Big Bad Wolf theme that her fourth grade teacher team executed.

Baby Update – Time is flying in Sidney’s second pregnancy. On Saturday, she will reach 23 weeks. We know the sex and we have the full name picked out. We even have a delivery date scheduled! I could feel the baby kicking for the first time yesterday and I must admit it was pretty cool. Sid keeps telling people that this pregnancy has been easier than the previous one so let’s hope that it continues.

Sid is doing great as she approaches 23 weeks.

All About the Presentation – I often say that the food at all family Mexican restaurants tastes the same to me. Although I have recently made some concessions, up until last Saturday I would still say that my two enchilada platter at Place A looks very similar to my two enchilada platter at Place B. This past weekend we ate at the El Cerro Grande location on 29th Ave. Let me tell you, the exterior of the restaurant is as welcoming as the way the food is presented. Usually I don’t notice things such as food presentation but the neat and colorful way my dinner came out made me take a moment to appreciate it.

Have you ever seen a Mexican restaurant with a facade quite like this? I bet you haven’t seen enchiladas, rice, and beans looking this good either. Well done, El Cerro.


Okay, I really got to go because trick-or-treaters are starting to come to the house! I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. Make sure to give your best candy to the trick-or-treaters who dress in the best costumes. Don’t Blink.

Sloan’s Opinion of Halloween

Sid and I are exact opposites when it comes to Halloween. I really enjoy the holiday while she can’t stand it. The basis for this difference of opinion is simple: I like scary and spooky things and Sid doesn’t.

I get a thrill going through haunted house attractions and although I usually don’t binge watch anything, I will watch horror movie marathons. I love a good ghost story and I find cemeteries fascinating. Sid doesn’t embrace the “spooky scary” feeling I enjoy and that is just fine.

But what about Sloan?

We wondered how the child of two parents with opposite opinions on all things spooky would embrace Halloween. Sloan was too young the past two years to really gauge how she felt, but this Halloween season it has been made clear: She is a fan!

Sloan is a Halloween fan!

Well, I guess it didn’t even take until “this Halloween season” to realize her preference. Halloween-related videos started playing on her iPad back in May. When she didn’t skip over them I knew she would most likely take after me. The long six-month buildup to October 31 has turned Sloan into one of Halloween’s biggest and youngest fans. She sleeps with a Halloween book, sings Halloween songs, and spontaneously yells “Happy Halloween.” She likes to drape a blanket over her head and run around the house like a ghost. She likes to “play vampires” with me. She pleads with us to drive by houses that have Halloween displays in the front lawns.

Even without a piece of Halloween candy in her system, she is absolutely giddy for the holiday.

I can appreciate that. Although I figured she was still too young for me to take her through Dr. Screams this year, that future daddy-daughter date night might not be too far away. It is great to have another Halloween fan in the house! Don’t Blink.

It’s a Peppa Pig Halloween

On our way to Target, Sid and I agreed that we would let Sloan decide on her Halloween costume this year. What better way to empower her to start making her own choices, right? We got to the store and went to the costume section. Sid and I let Sloan roam free as she looked up and down the aisles. After a couple minutes, we asked Sloan what she wanted to be. Our little girl pointed at a costume and enthusiastically said, “THIS!”

It was a food truck costume.

I mean, it’s cute, but not what we necessarily wanted Sloan to be for Halloween.

Sid and I looked at each other. We had good intentions but we didn’t know if the food truck costume would be the best representation of Sloan. After some husband-wife nonverbal communication, we pivoted.

“How about Peppa Pig?” Sidney countered to Sloan.

It’s a Peppa Pig Halloween for Sloan.


After a weekend full of Halloween festivities, Sloan’s costume is no longer a surprise. She danced and honked her way through three different Halloween events as the loveable British pig on Friday and Saturday.

This girl was meant to be Peppa.

Trust us, Sloan going as Peppa makes much more sense than a food truck. She watches Peppa Pig so much that she randomly speaks in an English accent at least a couple times per day. Heck, because of the show she refers to Santa Claus as Father Christmas.

Sloan makes a pretty convincing Peppa.

Luckily, Sloan quickly forgot about her food truck ambitions and has embraced Peppa. Although she prefers to push back the hood of her costume, she is still pretty convincing. The general public seems to feel the same way as the feedback from strangers has been positive. I never knew Peppa Pig was so popular!

Sloan has already got her (our) money’s worth with her Peppa costume.

Pig. Unicorn. Flamingo. The Halloween legacy of Sloan Anne Reser continues. She will still don Peppa several more times this week so it is still early to think about next year, but it will be interesting to see what else will be added to her eclectic Halloween mix. Don’t Blink.

Photo Bomb Thursday Rundown

Let the Halloween festivities begin. We are exactly one week away from the spooky holiday so you can expect plenty of appropriate activities and events over the next several days. Before you start to celebrate too hard, let’s begin with the Thursday Rundown.

Classic Photo Bomb – As I mentioned last night, we went to a Gamecock football game with my dad last weekend. After we finished at our tailgate, Sidney and I took a go-cart shuttle to the stadium while our dads decided to walk. We made it to the gate before they did so we decided to pass the time by taking a selfie. It turns out that they were closer behind us than I thought. As I pushed the button on my phone, my dad came out of nowhere and jumped perfectly into the frame for an epic photo bomb.

Well played, dad.

Maui Burst Mt. Dew – In an act of kindness, Geoff, my friend and co-worker, gave me a can of Maui Burst Mt. Dew to take home to my wife. The limited time new flavor, only found at Dollar General stores, is pineapple-flavored. As I mentioned in a previous blog post, my wife’s pregnancy craving is pineapple. Apparently her pineapple craving wasn’t on the brink of overpowering last night because she split the soda with me. My opinion? It is a very smooth, tropical-tasting soda with a detectable pineapple flavor. I thought it was pretty good! And yes, Geoff is the same dude who let me try Voo-Dew last month.

The Maui Burst Mt. Dew is pretty good.

Funnel Cake Mix – A few weeks ago, a couple girls in high school rang our doorbell. They were part of their school’s choir ensemble and were selling cookie dough and other items for a fundraiser. One of those “other items” was a funnel cake mix. Sid is a funnel cake fanatic so that is what we ordered. A couple nights ago, the girls were back with the product we purchased. Perhaps I should have waited until we (“we” meaning Sid) prepared it, but I couldn’t resist. Pretty soon, we will be bringing the carnival to our kitchen! Stay tuned…

We purchased funnel cake mix from a high school fundraiser.

Family Photos – We did something for the first time as a family last Friday…we went to have formal family portraits taken. St. Andrew is putting together a church directory and we answered the call to participate. The company that our parish hired gave us a pretty comprehensive photo shoot and had us feeling pretty good. However, my positive feeling faded away when we sat down to talk packages. Dang, they are expensive! They talked us out of settling for the complimentary 8×10 photo that all parishioners receive and shelling out a good amount for an elaborate package. Oh well, these photos will last forever and I am pretty excited to see some of them.

In addition to the photos we took as a family, the photographer also took individual pictures of Sloan.

Teacher Memes – Four years ago, Sidney shared with me this link that contained 61 absolutely HILARIOUS teacher memes. Then, three years ago, my wife wrote a guest blog post on Don’t Blink counting down her personal five favorite teacher memes. You don’t have to be a teacher or a teacher’s spouse to appreciate these…as long as you have learned from a teacher in your entire life you are bound to laugh.

You got to read some of these teacher memes…they are just as funny now as they were four years ago.


For those hitting the Halloween party circuit this weekend, be safe! Thanks for reading my latest rundown and have a great night. Don’t Blink.

Papa’s October 2019 Visit

As my parents make more trips to Myrtle Beach to see their grandchild (soon to be grandchildren), these recap blog posts of their visits might seem redundant. However, to be honest, these posts are selfishly more for Sloan than my readers. I want her to have a written record of what she did with her grandparents when they visited.

With that said, Sloan’s papa returned to Spokane early Tuesday morning. After arriving in Myrtle Beach last Wednesday, I dropped him off at the airport during Monday’s lunch hour so he could begin the long journey home that would span two days.

I want to organize this recap in a Thursday Rundown type style. I have five items, some themes and some events, that summarize my dad’s October 2019 visit perfectly. Without further ado, it is time to let the good times roll…

It was great to have my dad in town last week!

Papa Daycare – There are a million different things you can do when you visit Myrtle Beach, but my dad just wanted to hang with Sloan. On Thursday and Friday, we could have dropped Sloan off at daycare so my dad could enjoy some peace and quiet, but he would have none of that. My dad spent the days entertaining her in the play room, going on walks, feeding the turtles, climbing on the jungle gym, and preparing her meals. The whole trip, besides Wednesday afternoon, he never had a moment to himself. But like he told me, that was just the way he wanted it.

Papa and Sloan had plenty of time to goof around together.

SEC Football – My dad has always wanted to attend a big time Southern football game and this trip we finally made it a reality! We took him to Columbia, S.C., to watch the South Carolina Gamecocks host the Florida Gators. Sure, it rained (the whole time) but we had a lot of fun. It was a special day because our group consisted of Sidney, her dad, my dad, and myself. For Sid and I to be able to enjoy this experience together with our dads was pretty cool. Besides watching the game inside Williams-Brice Stadium, we got plenty of time in the car together and we also had our own little tailgate pregame.

Despite the rain, we had a great time at the Gamecocks game in Carolina.

Pumpkin Tradition – Sloan has “carved” a pumpkin every Halloween she has been alive and each time she has done it with papa. For the third year in a row, my dad made a jack-o-lantern for his granddaughter. Sloan was understandably much more engaged this time around and even helped scoop out the innards. Although papa might now be gone, the pumpkin remains! The past two nights, we have lit the candle for Sloan and let her blow it out before heading to bed.

Sloan and papa carved a pumpkin for the third consecutive year.

Food – My dad was all about taking us out to eat! He treated us at three different restaurants and thankfully Sloan, for the most part, behaved herself. For those Myrtle Beach locals, we ate at Grumpy Monk, Coastal Ale House, and Sam Snead’s. But it wasn’t all about dining at restaurants. On Thursday night, my dad made one of his specialties…pineapple chicken! He had it prepared right when Sidney and I arrived home from work and it was delicious!

My dad treated us to dinner at three different restaurants while he was here.

Lunch with Papa and Sloan – Because I leave early for work and tend not to arrive home until well after 5 p.m., I wanted to find a way to still see my dad during the long day. On Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Monday I managed to come home for the lunch hour. Although I only got like 25 minutes inside my house, it was so nice to see my dad and Sloan during the middle of the day. I would bring my dad Cook Out (a Southern fast food chain not available where he lives) and we would chat before I got back in my car and returned to work. It was short but sweet.

When my dad was here, I ate lunch with him and Sloan every day.


Our little family feels so honored that my dad makes it a priority to take time off work and make these annual solo trips. We miss him already but it was another incredible October visit. Love you, papa! Don’t Blink.

Secretive Thursday Rundown

Good evening to one and all. It is another busy Thursday night so don’t mind me rushing into this latest rundown…

Couple Secrets – We have something to announce about our born child and something to announce about our unborn child. However, I can only give the subjects and not the specifics. When it comes to Sloan, she has picked out a Halloween costume! Will it rival the flamingo and unicorn from years past? Wait and see! As for the baby that Sidney is carrying, we found out the sex on Monday! You will have to wait a little longer to find out that mystery. Sorry for being such a tease.

Will this year’s Halloween costume compare to the past two years?

Papa in Town – Yesterday evening, I picked up Sloan from day care and we drove home. When we got near the house, I told Sloan I saw someone standing in the driveway. She stretched her neck and let out multiple shrieks. It was Papa!! My dad is in town for his annual October visit (see 2018 and 2017). We got a lot planned and his extended weekend started out right last night as we ate at the Grumpy Monk and watched last night’s “This Is Us” episode.

My dad is in town for his annual October visit.

Now That’s Funny – My wife and I were howling over this graphic. Yesterday was National Boss Day and this rang too true for us––not the actual gift part but the insinuation that Sloan is the real boss in our house.

Now this made me laugh!

Family Fun Festival – Over the weekend, we took Sloan to a fall festival sponsored by our local libraries and Parks and Rec division. She played games, painted pumpkins, and fed farm animals. She also got her face painted. She could have chosen a princess, Disney characters, furry animals, and many other “cute” options but she decided that she wanted a dinosaur on her cheek. What was even more surprising was that she actually stayed still and allowed the lady to paint on her…six months ago that would not have happened.

Pumpkin Streak – Three years ago on this date, I wrote about how I snapped a 15-year streak of NOT carving a pumpkin. By the end of this month, I will extend my pumpkin-carving streak to four years. Why did I go so long without making a jack-o-lantern? You will have to read the old blog post to find out. But to be honest, I could care less if you do, I just wanted to share this collage of me carving pumpkins at various awkward situations of my youth.

All of these photos were taken at least 18 years ago.


That’s all I got for you. We got a fun weekend coming up consisting of a football trip. Be safe everyone. Don’t Blink.

Losing My Wedding Ring

The panic of losing something sucks. Unfortunately for me, I have had this feeling a couple times recently.

My birthday started off rocky. After finishing my workout at Legacy Fitness, I hopped in the car to return home to shower and start the day. As per usual, I opened the drawstring backpack I take with me to store my valuables. I throw my wallet, keys, phone, and wedding ring in it while I exercise. Can you guess which one I couldn’t find last Tuesday?

First off, so everyone knows, I only take my wedding ring off for two reasons: to exercise and shower. I dislike the feeling of weights tugging at the ring and when I bathe I fear it sliding off down the drain. For 3.5 years, I have never had an issue with slipping it off during these times as it was always waiting for me right where I left it. But I was about to get my first scare…

When I arrive at the gym, I place my valuables in my backpack and place it in a secure spot. After I do my weightlifting and cardio, I then go get my bag and bring it into the hardwood class area to do calisthenics (I like to check my phone at this time). I then leave the gym and get in my car. It is at this time that I slip my ring back on. On Tuesday morning, I went through the same routine as always. With my endorphins stimulated and a birthday on its way, I was in a good mood. That all changed when I reached into my bag.

I always bring in my drawstring backpack (with my wedding ring) into the classroom area of the gym.

When I dug to the bottom of my bag to pick up the familiar piece of metal, I only felt fabric. The absence of an object immediately made my stomach turn. But I didn’t start to freak out just yet. I thought maybe the ring got tangled in the sweat towels I bring with me that I stuff in my bag when I walk out. It wasn’t there. I turned over the bag on the passenger seat and let my wallet, phone, keys, and a couple pens fall out. No ring. Now I was starting to get a little frantic. I checked on the floorboard and outside the car to no avail.

It looks weird walking back into the gym after you just left it, but pride wasn’t an issue in this situation. I busted through the doors and started scouring the floors for my ring. The owner, Nancy, one of the nicest people you will ever know, helped me with my search. We traced the path from the cubbies to the classroom and from the classroom to the gym’s exit. She had me unfurl the mats to see if perhaps it got lodged in one. I was still drawing up empty. I ran back outside to look on the curb and back in my car. I then went back inside the gym and paced around again.

Time was my enemy. It was approaching 6 a.m. and I needed to get home so Sid could leave for work and I could take Sloan to daycare. Nancy said it was the day that the gym would get a deep cleaning and that she would be looking for it while the service was being performed. She told me that it would turn up and that she would call me when it did.

Completely dejected, I got in my car and pulled out of my parking spot. When I did, I saw a small silver object shining in the darkness in the space where my car had occupied. I slammed the car in park and hopped out to investigate. Total fake out…there actually wasn’t anything there, just my brain playing tricks on me.

It was a tough 15 minute drive home. In between prayers to God and St. Anthony, I thought about how embarrassing and unnatural it was going to be walking around with no wedding ring and how disappointed Sidney was going to be. A replacement just wouldn’t be the same. That ring was placed on my finger by Sid and blessed with holy water on our wedding day.

I parked in the driveway and decided to do one more scan of my car before going inside feeling like a complete loser. I was about to get a huge birthday present. I looked at my seat belt console and noticed something shiny on the floorboard. Not wanting to get my hopes up, I remained cautiously optimistic as I moved the seat all the way back to reveal my wedding ring right next to the seat belt.

Slipping it on my finger, a tear of joy might have glided down my cheek as I thanked God and St. Anthony. To be honest, it was a semi-traumatic experience that had me feeling awful. I remember when Sidney lost her ring for several minutes a few years back and I remember the look of desperation on her face. That was me last week.

It was lost but now it is found.

But all is good now and I have my bling on my finger. I am thankful to Nancy for doing all she could to help me find it and for keeping me positive, even if the ring was never lost in the facility. Although I don’t know exactly how it happened, the ring must have slipped out of my bag when I started to remove items after my exercise session. I am so happy I found it and I am committed to doing whatever possible to end my recent streak of losing things (boy, I got the craziest story to tell about losing my keys…but that is for another day). Don’t Blink.

33 Thursday Rundown

It is my first Thursday Rundown as a 33-year-old so I don’t know if that means it will be better or worse (probably worse) but let’s see, shall we? Here we go with five topics…

Subway Mania – Know how you can tell someone likes Subway? When they get three different Subway gift cards for their birthday. My brother and sister each gave me a gift card to the sandwich shop and Sidney included one in the gift she gave me as well. I got some Cold Cut Combos and Spicy Italians in my future!

I have some sandwiches (and burritos) on the house in my future.

Pregnancy Craving – My wife has identified her first big craving of her second pregnancy…pineapple chunks! She discovered it a couple weeks ago and we are now ordering several cans when we order groceries. Perhaps with her new love of pineapple, perhaps I can convince her that it is good on pizza!

Sidney’s pregnancy craving is pineapple and we are ordering plenty of cans from Walmart.

Funny Card – Yesterday, I mentioned that my boss decorated my office for my birthday. Well, she also left me a card that I didn’t discover until the next day. For all those texters out there, I am sure you can relate. I thought it was pretty good…

Lindsi gave me this card.

Pumpkin Patch Excursion – Speaking of my boss, this past weekend we went to her church’s pumpkin patch fundraiser. Lindsi was running the Conway Centenary United Methodist Church operation when we stopped by late Saturday morning. Sloan enjoyed looking at the pumpkins as well as their more exotic cousins, but she especially liked riding on the Spiderman motorcycle that belongs to Leo, Lindsi’s son.

Sloan had a fun time at the pumpkin patch.

Old Meme – Ending tonight’s blog post with a humble brag. Did you love the World’s Most Interesting Man as much as I did? When looking at Timehop today, this meme from three years ago popped up. It was a birthday post that someone published to my wall. Unfortunately, I have no idea who did it…I saw it only because I tweeted it out on October 10, 2016 and my caption was a generic “Someone posted this to my wall.” Someone! Why didn’t I say who it was?!

I don’t know who made this but it is pretty funny.


That was a pretty short rundown for a 33-year-old. Am I losing my blogging touch with age? We shall see. Have a great weekend, everyone. Don’t Blink.

Celebrated by Family and Friends

We are all familiar with the generic Facebook status that goes “Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! It was a great day and I felt so special.” Although I am notorious for encouraging people not to go this route and instead do something more personal (at least on a social media front), I am going to neglect my own advice for the purpose of this blog post.

So, let me start off by thanking everyone for the birthday wishes and stating that I felt really special yesterday. Ha!

But I did want to provide a few specific examples of people really going out of their way for me. You see, I am not usually a birthday guy but some of yesterday’s acts gave me a much needed birthday boost.

Gummy Bears and Dr. Pepper – My co-worker Geoff brought me a Dr. Pepper and a pack of gummy bears. He literally Googled Brent Reser Favorite Soda because he knew I most likely wrote about the topic before. Sure enough it took him to my post detailing my top five favorite sodas, letting him know exactly what to get me. For him to do the research and then brighten my day first thing in the morning was pretty cool. 

Dr. Pepper and gummy bears…a winning combination!

Office Decoration – My boss, Lindsi, surprised me in my office (we work in different buildings) with decorations, cupcakes, and a singing telegram. After happy birthday was performed, she started decorating my office in emoji-themed décor. I totally didn’t expect it and I actually didn’t mind sticking out like a sore thumb the rest of the day when people walked by. Lindsi went the whole nine yards and it was the first time my office had ever been decorated.

Lindsi decorated my office in an emoji-theme.

Spoiled By My Girls – When Sloan and I arrived home last night, Sidney already had a birthday celebration laid out. The marquee had a message on it, gift bags were set, and a card was placed. I sat on the couch and opened my presents as Sloan assisted and Sid watched. After that, we went out to dinner and then returned home for cake and ice cream. By far the highlight of my day, spending the evening with my girls was the best way to mark my birthday.

My girls spoiled me so much last night that Sloan even helped me blow out the candles.

Facetime Birthday Love – From about 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. last night, I gladly entertained Facetime calls from my sister, brother, and parents. I even talked on the phone to my brother’s fiancée who was in Portland for work. During each call the person I was chatting with sang happy birthday and quizzed me about my day. I then opened the gifts they sent me through the mail in front of them. Sloan and Sid participated in these Facetime calls as well and it was just so nice to catch up with my West Coast family.

Not Done Yet – On Sunday, Sidney’s family will celebrate October birthdays. That means my sister-in-law (Steph) and myself will take center stage for an afternoon of delicious food and NFL football. I am already looking forward to it.


I was once again reminded yesterday how lucky I am. Thanks to everyone who reached out, it really meant a lot. Don’t Blink.

Bring It On, 33

It is funny how you remember the little things even after decades have passed. When I was in the fourth grade, I vividly remember my teacher, Mrs. Pryor, celebrating her 33rd birthday. She was a class favorite and we all really liked her, but I remember thinking dang, she is kind of old.

Well, let’s fast forward 23 years and today I am the one turning 33 years old. Although from my mature perspective I like to think I am still a young adult, I can’t ignore the fact that most kids probably consider me an old dog. Oh well, I guess I should probably embrace it.

And embrace it I have––at least over the past few years. In my late twenties I became pretty self-conscious about my age but once I turned 30, interestingly enough, I stopped worrying about it. I was content with where I was at in life––faith, family, job––that I didn’t need to fret about another ring around my trunk.

I feel the same at 33 as I did at 30, 31, and 32. Life is just good when you get to spend each day with the people you love the most. There is nothing to fear about aging a year when you have a beautiful wife and a sweet daughter beaming at you as you blow out the candles on the cake.

Speaking of celebrating, my girls once again went all out making me feel special. They gave me some nice gifts and took me out to dinner at Michael’s Pizza, Pasta, and Grill. The food was delicious and Sloan, just like last year, was on her best behavior. My parents and siblings Facetimed me to sing happy birthday and Sid’s family went out of their way to mark the day as well.

Sloan and I at my birthday dinner. We ate at Michael’s Pizza, Pasta, and Grill.

Of course I couldn’t stop thinking that next birthday will be much different. Yes, turning 34 isn’t a “sexy” number so to speak, but it will be the first birthday that I will have TWO children helping me to celebrate it. But enough about that, first thing’s first…let’s do 33!

Sid spoiled me once again on my birthday.

So as I begin my “Mrs. Pryor year,” I look forward to the adventures, blessings, and challenges that await me. I hope to make it the best one yet. Don’t Blink.
