Witty in Fitty: Florida Prepares for a Hurricane

Hurricane Isaac has come and gone through Florida in a matter of days, leaving a wave of destruction status updates and, if you’re lucky enough, a day off from work. Here’s hoping the other states are just as prepared.

Witty in Fitty: Father’s Day, Figured Out

I struggle year after year to find something Slick Rick will not only love for Father’s Day, but something he’ll use. He’s a practical guy, so it’s quite the challenge.

Best gift ever? No doubt.

Definitely winning Favorite Daughter this year.

My family teased me relentlessly, and I thought I’d forever erased it from muscle memory.

As I wrote out holiday cards this week, it resurfaced.


Stop judging me, Tom.

Witty in Fitty: Braving [Rebecca] Black Friday


For anyone brave enough to fight the masses today, I salute you. Hope it was worth it!

Working retail for a few years means I was asleep well into the sales. And, if you saw any of these ladies … God help you.

Tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes after … wards.
