mac n' cheese.
The six things I could never do without

Something to look forward to
On a typical Friday night I am
Why be predictable? I don't have a typical Friday night! Some weeks
I'm out at bars, some I'm at home on my couch with a good book,
some I'm hosting friends or having a laid-back dinner out.
