Happy Friday! It’s dreary and slushy in Detroit, so we need a fun video for an afternoon pick-me-up.
This is an oldie, but a goodie. Little Kaylee has to blow out her birthday candle to make a wish, but she’s having a tough time. She certainly is determined, though!

The HAPPO champs got together and decided that we couldn’t let 2011 come to a close without sneaking in a HAPPO chat. So mark your calendars for Thursday, December 15, and block off 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST for a HAPPO Twitter chat about resume writing tips. Here’s everything you need to know:
