Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (12/2/2016)

Sorry ladies, I’m off the market. Last Thursday, at Thanksgiving dinner, I dropped to one knee and proposed to my then-girlfriend. Thankfully she said yes. Let the wedding planning commence! This weekend I’m sticking in Fort Lauderdale, but I’m off to Las Vegas the following weekend for one of my best friend’s thirtieth birthdays. How about that Miami Dolphins winning streak? Think they ride it out against the Ravens?
