Found this big in my bathroom and I’m curious what it is because I’ve never seen it before.

Hi Sean,
This Western Conifer Seed Bug,
Leptoglossus occidentalis, is classed in the same insect order as a Stink Bug, but it is in the Big Legged Bug or Leaf Footed Bug family Coreidae, which is most likely the reason you thought a stink bug mated with a grasshopper.
