So far, 2012 is shaping up quite nicely here at SDP Headquarters! During the long holiday weekend, two good friends visited from Michigan and Texas. Of course, we stopped by St. Armands Circle, where we spotted Neptune clutching a handful of fading balloons from the New Year's Eve celebration the night before. It was such a fun, unexpected sight, I immediately thought it was SDP-worthy. We also went to the Outback Bowl in Tampa yesterday to see my alma mater, Michigan State University, take on the University of Georgia. More on that as soon as I recover from my team's heart stopping triple overtime victory. (Hopefully, within the next day or two.) Go State!
