Friday Fun!

Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun! Did you see last week’s post?!  Mommy royally screwed up and didn’t save the version with all the photos. And with all of our running around the Bluegrass State, she never even realized. Plus she was too busy to take photos of us this week. The only pictures she has are of that stupid super sweet elf, Poopsie.

So here, she wants you to see this one, because she thinks it’s ADORABLE! Whatever!

Personally I think this guy is much better looking. No, not Derek Jeter. The short one!

I mean seriously, I am totally cuter than this dork joker elf.

But we look the best when we are all together.


If you want to see more photos of me behind-the-scenes of life in the Cupcakes & Kale Chips house and kitchen, follow Mommy on Instagram.

And Mommy want me to remind you about your chance to win a $500 Visa Gift Card AND a $600 Visa Gift Card. Darn those rules that say that I can’t win since she is hosting the giveaway.

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

OK, Mommy’s turn..
