The Zoo- finally!

After getting rained out two weeks in a row, Ben and I were finally able to visit the Hogle Zoo! The weather was great and the crowds weren't too large.

I looove elephants, so I was way excited that they were out and about. We went to the Elephant Show and some poor little kid about 5 ft away from me got sprayed by the elephant's trunk. I'm happy that it wasn't me.

This elephant, Christie, is currently 20 months pregnant! And she still has two months to go! Poor girl, I thought that 9 months was bad enough...

Cute Benjamin... he liked the bears, because "they're kind of like dogs, but a lot bigger." Uh-huh.

We love each other.

The giraffe building is so neat, because you are able to see the animals up close!

I can't remember if I blogged about my last zoo experience, but the last time I was in the giraffe building there was some lady that decided to nurse her baby. Great, fine, whatever. You guys know about my public nursing phobia. Anyway, this lady whipped out her tot, bent over to get something out of her diaper bag, rummaged around for a bit.... all with her tot hanging out... talked to her baby for a second, and then proceeded to nurse her baby publicly. No blanket, no nothin. Ben and I about died. Anyway, this did not happen at today's zoo visit. Thank heaven.

Cannot wait.

This movie can't come out soon enough. After first reading the book about two years ago, I thought that it would be a great movie. Last year when I found out that they indeed making it into a movie, I was ecstacic. Finding out that two of my favorite actors were cast was just icing on the cake.

As previously mentioned...

Here is a picture of the diaper bag Ben got me for Mother's Day. I'm in love with it and can't wait until I can actually use it! The man definitely knows me and my tastes.

Also, here's a picture of me at 25 weeks. No denying that I am in fact pregnant. However, some of my clients act all surprised when I mention something about the baby or taking maternity leave in October. They're all, "What?!? You're having a baby?" Ummm yeah, I didn't just swallow a bowling ball for lunch.
In weekend news, me and Ben's plans to visit the zoo on Saturday were rained out for the second Saturday in a row. Last time I checked, we lived in Utah, not Washington. Go away rain! Hopefully next Saturday's zoo attempt won't be foiled. I want to see some animals for crying out loud!

Our rain plan meant eating lunch at 5 Guys and seeing The Proposal. Very fun movie, although the whole nude scene was a little...hmmm... special. You didn't really see anything, but very little was left to the imagination. Add sitting in the very front row in between your husband and MIL. Awkward and up close!

Time for a vacation?

Just now, I was thinking, "Today my job is making me suicidal."
Immediately after thinking that, Baby Danger gave me a huge kick.
I can only assume that he is agreeing with me.
Disclaimer: No, I'm not seriously suicidal. My job is just stressful at times. Picture Harry Potter getting his life sucked away by the dementor in HP5. I am Harry Potter, my job is the dementor. Thank goodness this job has non-stressful times too.

The Bump.

As requested, here is a picture of the bump. This was at 23 weeks. Sorry that it's not the best picture- the dress kind of makes things look misshapen. I'll take another one soon.

Do you notice how high up the bump is? Seriously, this child is already taking up my rib space, or at least that's how it feels! It's going to be a long summer...

Jeopardy time.

Alex Trebek: Mrs. Harris was pulled over for this last night while driving down State Street.
Contestant #1: What is speeding?
Alex: I'm sorry, that is incorrect.
Contestant #2: What is running a red light?
Alex: That is closer, but incorrect.
Contestant #3: What is driving without her lights on?
Alex: Correct! You win a new tv!

*It's true, I was pulled over by two officers last night (at the same time) for driving around in the dark. I also was missing my registration... mind you, my car is registered, but Mr. Harris recently removed the registration paper from my glove box without my knowledge and forgot to put it back. No lights + no registration = a night in jail? A big, fat ticket? Nope, due to my amazing work connections (or so I'd like to believe) I didn't get a night in jail or a ticket- just a warning. Hooray!

** When the officers pulled me over they were definitely shining their flashlights in my backseat... you know, in case I had drugs or sawed-off shotguns just laying around. Nope, just a plate of cookies and a pair of flats.

Bad kitty.

Oscar thought that it would be fun to help my mom and I paint the baby's room last week. He thought that it would be even more fun to run around the upstairs and leave blue tracks for us to clean up.

I want, I want.

How cute would this picture be in Baby Dylan's bedroom?
I'm going with adorable.

Another husband post.

Sorry about all the husband posts as of late, it's just that Ben has been so fabulous lately. Even more fabulous than usual, in fact.

Today was an absolute craptastic day at work. It was so awful I'm not going to torture myself (and you) by going into detail. However, I did torture Ben with the details. Poor husband.

His response?

"I'm sorry stink (pet name that I hate, but whatev), you should eat some pie and put on some ANTM."

How fabulous is he?
1. He realizes the positive effect that pie has on my life and well being.
2. He knows what ANTM is. And uses it in proper context.

Pie? Check. ANTM? Check. Smile? Check.
