Happiness :)

Random collection of happy thoughts, go!
With slightly under a month until Kayla's wedding, I decided I needed to try on my bridesmaid's dress again. I bought it large on purpose- not knowing I was going to be pregnant, I just thought I might not lose weight.

I'm almost 3 months pregnant now, so I will be about.. 4 months pregnant for the wedding. Brian keeps asking "when will you start to show?" I have no idea...

But I tried on the dress. It fits me perfectly around my breastises. It was a little big there before, but I guess that's great since my boobies have doubled in size... Okay, not really, but they are 4" bigger.

The tummy/waist area? Still got a little bit of wiggle room. It was not tight before and it's not tight now, in fact I weigh exactly 4 lbs less than when I went to try it on. So that's good. If my waist does start to increase, I'll be alright.

I put on a pair of support hose and tried it on again and had LOTS of room, so that made me really happy.

I was really worried this dress wasn't going to fit. I don't have money for alterations/its too close to the wedding for them anyway... but I am relieved that it's still a great fit.

Now I just have to make sure I don't eat a boat load of crap between now and then and gain a bunch of weight.


Today we went to the zoo. I freaking love the zoo. We looked at everything, walking around in the 95 degree heat for 2 hours. Sippin' on lots of water. It was nice.

My favorite part of the zoo is the petting zoo. Ha! Probably because you actually get to touch the animals! I bought a couple handfuls of corn and fed the geese. They are so bold they will come up and eat it out of your hand. Now if you know anything about me, you know I love geese/ducks. They make me laugh. I don't know why. So I had two handfuls of corn and was surrounded by geese eating out of the palm of my hands. It was heaven! If you've never done it, they don't hurt. It feels like someone sort of pinching you, except it's not painful at all. Like when you grab your fat rolls, with your finger and thumb. That's how it feels, it's odd. Brian had never fed one so I made him do it too.

Then we went to see the goats! I love goats. So funny looking. These goats are all fat and lazy, being fed by screaming children all day long. You can pet them too. I laughed as they followed us around.

The exhibits are always nice. In the last few months, the zoo has had a few animal births, which is always really cool. Seeing baby gibbons and baby vultures, both of them quite rare, is a treat.

I also got a video of me chasing a very colorful bird. Ha!

Also, they are hiring! Hurray! So I think I'll be applying, thanks! (<--- what a weird ass kid, wanting to work at the zoo)


Highlights! I did them! I bought an at home kit. I love the at home kits. They give you a shower cap with holes in it, and a stick, and tell you to poke your own head a few hundred times, slather some foul smelling concoction on your head, and then wait an hour before you wash it off.
Brian poked the holes in my head, like a good husband. I didn't cry or wince, like a good wife. I did the rest though. Slathering, washing, etc.

It looks really nice. It's my summer look!


Sunshine! I've been getting lots of it, if you can believe it! I am seriously enjoying summer. It's time to get a new swimsuit. My other one was way too big and I gave it away. I am not sure if I am going to need a bigger one this year? Or the same? I might just buy one to fit me now, then another to fit me later. Our complex pool isn't open yet (something about new Indiana laws?) so I have a few days.

I actually got a little sunburnt while 'supervising' my dad and Brian fix his car. My shoulder is a little red, and my neck feels a little dried out. Today, I walked around in shorts, a t shirt, and flip flops, so I got a little sun today too. It was great.

There you have it, random things that made me happy lately. What's made you happy?

Remember, it takes more energy to be sad than it does to be glad! :)


  1. Now that you mention it, working at a zoo might be one of my dream jobs! It sounds like such an awesome job to say when someone asks what I do for a living.

  2. I'm glad the dress fits!

    I'm happy the kids are gone to summer camp on Wednesdays so that I can love them again.

    I'm happy Mr. Survival is working so hard for us.

    I'm happy I can take care of Chickadee and blog.

  3. Ah Sunshine! We're supposed to have a sunny weekend too! I can't wait to get out and about. My trip to Yosemite made me hungry for some hiking! (I LOVE our local zoos too!)

  4. you did your hair again lol
    glad it turned out well
