Friday Fun!

Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun! Look, it’s the one photo I posed for all summer…

And, well, soon enough, it’ll be time for roaring fires…

Warm hats…

And frosty friends (see the resemblance?)…

But for now I think we’ll just enjoy the last lazy, hazy days of summer…

And maybe a few more tomatoes…

Look at that monster!

    Brianne your little boy kind of DOES look like Olaf!! I totally mean that as a compliment, btw :) (I finally watched that movie with my daughter today–she’s obsessed). This is a great collection! I’ve totally been eying your French Onion meatballs. Mmm. Thanks for the shout out on my Nutella Reeses ice cream! Summer, don’t go!
