Around the Zoo

I got the chance to walk around my Zoo this past Saturday and thought I would share some of the pictures I took.

These Flamingo's are right outside my building.

One of the baby lion cubs. He's not so little anymore...

You can hear this guy roaring all the way down into the building I work in. He is a ways away from us, so that's a loud roar!!

Sleeping bear!

Pretty waterfall in the tiger cage

How sweet! Pretty Kitty's!!

My husband has decided to start his own business, building bunk beds. I think he will be happier doing this, then with what he was doing before. He's out in his garage now, building his first bed..

Also I am temporarily out of work.. I have a on going shoulder problem that I had surgery on 3 years ago. I have trouble lifting my right arm, or using it at all. It hurts all the time, but I have learned to live with that pain, but there are days when its unbearable. Pain will shoot down my arm, up my neck and down my back. This last Friday was one of those days. I got sent home from work, and was told not to come back until I have a doctors release. The only appointment I could get is for next week. In the previous surgery the doctor cut 1/4 inch of my collar bone off in hopes that that would fix my shoulder. It didn't. It still hurts. I'm not sure if it got better or worse.. I was told my condition was called impingement syndrome, where there is not enough room in between my shoulder bone and collar bone, so they are rubbing and pinching together.

In other news, I was asked what the husband planted in the garden. I'm not really sure. I know he put in some cucumbers, and herbs, and carrots and he put corn somewhere. Other than that I'm not sure what he planted, and he doesn't remember. So, its a surprise!

Also, I am having trouble posting comments on some blogs out there, including my own. So If I was a regular commenter on your blog and have stopped commenting, this is why. I'm sorry. I want to leave comments, but I can't..
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!

New Projects

My husband built me a chest to hold all our extra bed pillows and blankets. They were just stacked on the floor...

Isn't it pretty?

He also refurbished our night tables to match the chest.

Forgotten Elephants

I can't believe I forgot to post pictures of the elephants! Sometimes I just don't know where my brain is..
Here are the elephants at my zoo

I get to walk past these guy's everyday on my way into work and on my way out.

Kitty's big day out

Kitty got to go on an outside adventure today. He frolicked in the grass then climbed a tree. He had a blast and wants to know when we're letting him back out again..

Sorry for the blurry pictures, but he just wouldn't hold still!!

What's that I see?

A square of dirt?

A Garden!

My husband recently became a house husband. His latest project is this garden. He is doing some yard work and things that need to be done around our house.

In other news, I bought the Twilight movie yesterday. I didn't like the movie. Don't get me wrong, I am so in love with the books, but the movie sucked! It just went by too fast and had no substance. My husband didn't like it and he loves vampire movies. He did not read the books so I had to fill him in on background information that the movie didn't give him. I was disappointed..

Also, for everyone that told me to get my hair styled with bangs, I still plan on doing it, I just have not had the time to go get my hair cut.. I promise as soon as I get it done I'll post pictures!

Anniversary Weekend Pictures part 2

I took as many pictures as I could before the batteries died in my camera. I didn't have any extra, so the only pictures I took were in the petting zoo part of the drive through zoo..

Hungry deer!


This guy is just too cute for words!! My husband wouldn't let me bring him home..

This guy was a big meanie and wouldn't let anyone else have any food. He would also head butt the fence when we ignored him..

This guy was featured on my wordless Wednesday. He is a sheep. I guess he thought I had food for him because, when I tried to take his picture he leaned in real close..

We spent most of our Friday evening here, The Squid and Whale bar. The band performing is called Toast to the Blind. They were pretty good. There was on other picture taken this night, but it won't be shared.. It features a rather intoxicated Becca, and no one wants to see that.. We had a blast though!! I wish I would of taken more pictures of the bar. It was kind of pirate themed. Behind the band are a bunch of rocks and a mural on the wall implicating a pirate's cove. It was pretty neat.

Pretty view! I took this as we were heading home Sunday.

Not so pretty view. This was the same spot I took the picture above, but only looking down. I guess if you want to dump a tire, this is where you go.

Ahhh pretty view again!

Well, I'm out of pictures. There was a St. Patrick's day parade on Saturday, but the husband and I were nursing major hangovers, and missed out. All in all we had a great weekend. It was nice being able to get away and go back to the spot we got married at. When we were there for our wedding my mom stayed with us, even after everyone else left. She was with us for 2 days, so we didn't get to do all the things we wanted.. We still didn't have time to do it all over the weekend, but it was nice to go back there!!

Anniversary Weekend

Originally My husband and I decided to go camping for our anniversary, but it was too rainy. I was able to get off early Thursday, so we headed out a day early. We decided to go back to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. That's where we got married. Eureka Springs is a very beautiful town. They have a ton of neat old house's and place's to shop. Not to mention all the bar's..

Above is the emergency/fire exit of the hotel we stayed at. We Stayed at the New Orleans Hotel. It was a cool old building.

They had neat gas lights outside.

Our room was a bit on the small side, but was cozy..

This is the building next to the hotel. I thought it was neat looking, so I took a picture of it..

We also went to The Promise Land drive through Zoo. It was a ton of fun! I'll post pictures from the zoo and all the pretty house's later this week when I have more time.. Our actual anniversary was Monday. We didn't do anything that day.. I had to work.. But our weekend was fun!
