Farewell Braverman Family Farewell

Thursday night I’m gonna say goodbye once and for all to the Bravemans.  I know it seems silly but I’m choked up just reading back that sentence.  Saying goodbye.  Once and for all.  The Bravermans.  Gulp.  It’ll be a miracle if my computer doesn’t short out by the time this blog entry is completed due … Continued

Ho, Ho, Ho… The Unpolished Gifts You Need To Know

If you have $13,532.00 you could buy all seventy-two items on the 2014 Gift List of Oprah’s Favorite Things.  If you’re questioning how I came up with that dollar amount, the answer is: YUP I clicked on every single item and added it up! I don’t know about you but I’m wayyyyy too unpolished to … Continued

Save Some. Spend Some. Give Some To Charity.

As a kid, my Dad had a bunch of mantras he’d repeatedly drill into my head. “Don’t Bullshit A Bullishitter” was one of my favs.   “It Is Nowwwww Bedtime” was one of my least favs! I still have yet another one of the (in)famous Silver catchphrases that he wrote a million years ago on his business card and … Continued

I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS… IN YOGA

Isn’t is awesome when you pick up the phone to call a friend and they say, “OMG, how did you know I was just thinking about you?”  I love it when that happens. What about when you exchange greeting cards with someone special and it turns out you’ve both picked the same exact card?  I … Continued

A Tasket! A Tisket! Lemme Tell You 'Bout My Brisket!

I love food.  I love to eat the food more than I like to prepare the food.  Reason being, I’m not that good of a cook.  To say I’m a decent cook is a stretch, but at least I try.  I’m a huge proponent of we’re having breakfast for dinner tonight, but my boys tend … Continued

TEEKI IS OH SO SHEEKI

My Mother called the other day sounding incredibly enthusiastic.  She couldn’t wait to tell me that she “spotted an adorable young lady wearing the most fabulous yoga pants in aisle four at Whole Foods.  Knowing I would L-O-V-E love them, she ‘literally’ stalked the woman all the way to the parking lot to get the … Continued

Why Didn't I Think Of That?

I’d be a millionaire if I had a dollar for every time I said, “Why Didn’t I Think Of That?”  You know  what sucks though?  Coming up with an idea isn’t really the hard part.  Over the years I’ve had tonzzz of brainstorming sessions in my personal think tank where I’ve invented dozens of gadgets … Continued

Move Over Bacon… There's Something MEANER

Nope, I’m not whipping up Sizzlean.  It’s more like SIZZLE-MEAN. For the better part of the last two days I’ve been home filling my dance card with the highly acclaimed American political drama series, House of Cards. Forget about six degrees of Kevin Bacon.  My head is spinning three hundred sixty degrees from the whiplash … Continued

Don't Let THE LEFTOVERS Go To Waste

I hate wasting, which is why I always go for the leftovers.  I typically find all the good leftovers in my fridge, but the other night I found The Leftovers on my television and boy oh boy did it satisfy my appetite! THE LEFTOVERS:  Things That Make You Go Hmmmm The Leftovers is a new … Continued

What Luck! Everything At DOLLAR TREE Really Is Only A Buck!

I can not believe there’s no false advertising when it comes to those dollar stores.  Seriously, I’m SHOCKED.  Everything’s $1.00. This weekend is Visiting Day, so yesterday I went to Dollar Tree to load up on crap for my kid.  I’m still broke from paying the camp tuition, so I skipped Target because as we … Continued
