Friday Fun!

Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun!

This week I suppose it’s all about this guy, since he did turn 1 and all…

Look, he gets to eat cake…

And play with a super-cool box…

And I’m stuck sleeping on the floor because everyone had to come see him and take up all of the decent sleeping surfaces…

And make sure you follow her on bloglovin’, or enter your email address in that box at the top of the page, so that you never miss any new recipes, reviews, and giveaways that are coming up.

    All of your “wants” sound right up my tree – but we do actually have one in common. I just pinned (a few days ago) the Chocolate and Peanut Butter Earthquake cake. I’ve made the original Earthquake cake many times, but the PB/Choc sounds SOOO good. Can’t wait to make it. Hope your little one is still having some birthday fun, and sharing it with his big bro.
