Funny zoo experience

So, I had a funny experience a couple of weeks ago when I went to the zoo with my sister-in-law and nephews. I was just hanging with the fam, checkin' out the monkeys, when a girl walks by. I immediately recognized her and was trying like crazy to figure out how I knew her. I couldn't think of her name, but I knew what her kids looked like, where she went on vacation, what she got her husband for his birthday, that she loves photography, etc...After a few minutes, I figured out how I "knew" her. Oh ya, don't worry. I have stalked her blog! It was so crazy that I knew all these things about her and she had NO idea that I did. Crazy....actually, pretty creepy! In my defense, I found her blog because it was linked to a silent auction for Nie Nie. I think she was donating photograph sessions. It's not like I spend hours on end just looking at the blogs of people I don't know (though I do occasionally stumble across some interesting blogs that I get sucked into). Has anyone had this happen? I guess this is the kind of thing that prompts people to go private.
Anyway, so back to the zoo. My mom and I had a great time at the zoo with my sister-in-law Carolyn & my nephews. Rob even met up with us on his lunch break. It was such a beautiful day. I hadn't been to Hogle Zoo since I was a kid, so it was a fun little trip. My nephew Carter was a little hard to warm up to at first, but for the last half of the day he just couldn't get enough of grandma. Here's a few pictures from the photoshoot.

At least you didn't say hi and then figure out that you knew her from blog stalking. Little Sienna looks beautiful in her blessing dress. Cant wait to meet her.

Hilarious! I know some day that will happen to me. I love checkin' out neat blogs. I am a bonafide stalker. Yikes!

Too funny, Holly. But, yeah, that's pretty much why I went private. :)

Can't wait to see Powell Posts!

That is a little weird! I'm new to the blogging world so that hasn't happened to me...yet. But I did leave a comment for my friend and I noticed she had a comment from someone called "Goooooooood Girl" with a picture of Brittney Spears. It was a post about her daughter's birthday and the comment was something like, "I like it!" Very creepy indeed. My friend deleted the comment as soon as she saw it. I would be a little unnerved, personally. And yet, here we are, still not going private!

PS: I guess it is true what Andy Warhol said--"In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes."

I try to be an honest stalker and at least leave one comment, so I feel a little better about my stalkiness. Your new pictures are so sweet.
