Happy Labor Day! 2013: Tako-kuns, a leaf bug and a get-together

Happy Labor day everyone!

Today was a jam packed day! I recently scored a promotion at work (\^o^/) and am in need of some new duds so first thing this morning I went with my mom to Salvation Army to get in on some Labor Day sale action. (All clothing 50% off~!)

After we checked out, there on the hood of the car across from ours was a real live leaf bug!!! So cool! 😀 😀 😀 I snapped a couple pics with my mom’s cell and let it crawl up on my shoulder. Totally giddy I called out to my mom and said, “Hey Ma, can I keep it?”  Surprisingly she agreed that I could take him for a ride so I could get my camera! XD

Just chillin’ in the car.

He looks like a cross between a grasshopper, a praying mantis and a leaf. It’s just so cool!

Me and the Leaf Bug!

After a while the leaf bug got tired of the attention and flew away. I won’t forget you Bug-ly!

My brother and I also hosted a family get-together this afternoon and the shocker – all of our siblings made it! There are nine of us and have very different schedules so we usually are missing someone – but it was not the case today! 🙂 Overall everyone had a nice time and I was able to finish my stack of Tako-kuns (Poll results are in! Thank you everyone who voted!) while they were visiting.

So much for not working on labor day eh? XD

What did you do for Labor day?

    • It definitely was! I personally despise worms (they make me hyperventilate) but am more tolerant of other kinds of bugs. I blame it on the “What is an Insect” book I read as a child. They had all sorts of cool bugs listed in it like the leaf bug the stick bug and the honey wasp. 😉

Leave me some love!
