When The Boyfriend’s Away…

…Ali will play. And sing along at the top of my lungs listen to Justin Bieber. And clean. In other words, I’ve been wildly productive tonight, and I’m pretty psyched about it. Not that I wouldn’t have been as motivated if ABS had come home earlier, but it was nice having the place to myself […]
