Let's Compare and contrast, shall we?

Andy was out of town this past weekend in Rock City, Idaho. He was backpacking for class. (I know, sweet class huh?) Well, naturally, Will and I had to stay home. It was going to be a crazy weekend, or so I thought. I actually handled it really well, I am proud to say! My only problem was getting to sleep. We do the same thing every night. Well, I was lonely, and I could not shut my mind off. So, I thought to myself, "hmm...Andy watched a ton of movies online at school for free last semester. Maybe I can find Twilight online and watch it." I was needing some Edward time.

I searched.............

And I searched......................

And I searched some more..................

All I could stinking find was previews and "Buy Twilight Online, NOW."

So, I started looking for shows. I went to this site Andy I go to a lot to watch TV online. I discovered they have movies on there as well...sorta. I couldn't figure it out.

I did a general search for the word "vampire." I thought maybe the old Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie would come up.

But, instead, a link for "The Vampire Diaries" came up. I thought "I wonder what this is..." and I clicked it. It took me to The CW link and I clicked that, too.

It showed me this picture:
Pretty hot, huh?

I watched a few episodes. Well, ok, I watched them all. (There was only two at the time. It's brand new show)

It's about a girl named Elena. She lives in Mystic Falls, VA. She falls for the new guy, Stefan Salvatore. He's a vampire. But, don't worry, he only eats animals, not humans. He has a brother, Damon, who is a vampire. But he eats people. They both love Elena. Can she chose? Can she survive before she has to chose? (Sound a little familiar? This is based on a book by LJ Smith. She came BEFORE Stephanie Meyer)

So, here is where the comparing and contrasting comes in. We'll compare Bella and Edward to Elena and Stefan. I'll let you be the judge on who is hotter. (I would also like to say, the acting in The Vampire Diaries is WAY better then in Twilight. It's not as awkward.)

Bella and Edward:
Elena and Stefan:

So, leave me your choice. We're going to take a vote. If you think Bella and Edward are a better looking couple, I want to know. If you think Elena and Stefan are a better looking couple, well, tell me. And, if you are interested in seeing what The Vampire Diaries is all about, check out this site.

What a HORRIBLE mommy I am!

So, I know this is my second post for today...

That's because this morning, while talking all about myself, I forgot to talk all about my little man who is EIGHT months old TODAY! I just can't believe it! (I am pretty sure I say that every time I talk about his birthdays!)

He's getting so big. He officially crawls now. And pulls himself up. He's also pretty good at getting his food in his mouth with his fingers. He knows who daddy is. He actually says "Da Da Da" when ever he eats. I was kind of offended until my sister in law, Becky, said I should take it as a compliment. Why you ask? Well, let me tell enlighten you for a moment. He says "Da Da Da" because Dad is the first OTHER person he realizes. What? You say that doesn't make any sense? Well, I am not finished, silly. What that means is: he still considers me and him one person. He associates himself with me and me with him. We are still one in the same in his little mind. I LOVE that way of thinking. Even though he is growning so much and changing so much, one thing that hasn't changed, yet, is the way he sees me. He still sees me as apart of him, the one who he lived in for 8 months.

That's another point. Will is offically lived outside of me as long as he was inside of me. Remember, he was born 4 weeks early.

Will really loves to read. He also likes to eat my plants, and play in the dirt. He likes to go on walks with me. And read stories at night with Daddy. He loves to sit with Daddy on the couch and watch the tube. Or play with toys with Daddy and Mommy. He REALLY loves to be tossed in the air. It makes him giggle a lot. He likes to give girls kisses. Well, ok, he's a one-woman-man, he only kisses Allie Wood.

We love our little man and can't wait for all the fun times ahead!

My buns are burning!

This week, thanks to my good friend Sonny, I have been given some extra motivation to get my butt in shape! He pretty much said to me "What's holding you back besides being lazy?" And he's exactly right. I've just been lazy. I can give whatever excuse I want: "I don't want to loose my milk supply." "So, make sure you are still eating enough." "I just am not a runner." "No one is a runner, you just have to go do it." So, there ya have it, I have no more excuses. I've decided that I have to have a "purpose" when I exercise. On Wednesday, I walked to the library (I've needed a new book since I've already finished the Fablehaven books) Well, they don't open until 10, so I walked there for NO reason. But it's ok, I went there again yesterday and got me a book and Will some books. Today, I just walked down to East high and back. You know, cause you guys care where I walk to everyday.

I have a hard time because, well, it's easy to get overwhelmed with mommy stuff. It's easier to say "I've taken care of a kid all day." Well, that's no longer just who I am. I do care about myself and I am gonna get back to my skinny little butt. The goal is to loose 25 pounds. That's right. 25 pounds. Wish me luck!

Thanks to my great hubby who wants me back to my old self and my good friend Sonny for telling me straight up I have no more excuses!

Enough with the milestones already!

Will has started crawling. And about a day after he started that craziness, he pulled himself up. What the HECK?! I need a break between these huge milestones! I mean, he's almost 8 months old, but He's just getting too big, too fast. Can't I slow it down? It's just so crazy. We went and bought him some winter clothes...he had like two long sleeve shirts. Poor kid would freeze! It was crazy buying some 12 month clothes. It doesn't seem like he'll ever fit in them.

In other news:

Here is an old school picture of me and one of my best friends, Christina:

She's coming to Utah to visit me! Well, ok...so she's really coming out here to see her boyfriend. He lives in Logan. They met while he was out there selling, and now they are getting together for General Conference. (If any of you know how Andy and I met, you know why this is funny) So, her and her bf will be staying with us in Salt Lake for 4 days. Don't worry, we're kicking Andy out from the bed and the girls will be in one room and the boys will be in the other...on the floor. I can NOT wait! I miss my Georgia friends so much! It'll be so fun!

Updates and a few thoughts of my own

In some BIG news here on the Fraser home front...We're MOVING! That's right. AGAIN. We have been given the great opportunity to join the Ronald McDonald Family over at the Ronald McDonald house here in SL. We will be moving Halloween Day. We are very excited!

Will is a little soldier boy...he army crawls all over this place! It's great fun!

In other thoughts...we are looking to but health insurance. Will gets kicked off medicaid when he is a year old. Andy and I just need to be looked at. What with his wrist issues and my moles that hurt...I'd say that would be a good idea, right? Yeah.

I would rather become a hermit then buy health insurance. It's a JOKE! It's like they grab you by the balls with the monthly payment and then squeeze as hard as they can with the deductible. (Sorry for the crude metaphor) But it's true. Like a family of three, going to school full time, working part time can afford payments of at least 150 bucks (and that's REALLY low) a month and a deductible of at least 1,500 bucks a month (again, that's the lowest we found). The schools policy is an even bigger joke and I don't even want to go there. Why can't insurance companies be about helping people instead of trying to make a buck? Seriously people. What about the little guy. It's not like we are complete bums. We are doing what we are supposed to and still get shat upon. Nice. Real cool.

It's easy for people who have health insurance to be against Obama's Public Option. Try being the person who can't afford the private way, and makes "too" much for the government option. Why does congress get a steal on their health insurance? Seeing as we work, and pay taxes, which pay their stinking salary...we pay for THEIR insurance and yet can't afford our own.

Looking for a health plan can just go live under a rock and DIE!

ER Excitement

Many of you may remember my ATV accident. If not, you can read about it here.

When I fell off the ATV, a few hours later I started having minor cramps. I didn't think anything of it though. Over time, my cramps have gotten worse and I've had some other symptoms. They are just the kind of cramps that I would take a deep breath and move on with my day. Well, my m-i-l called Andy yesterday and said we should go to the ER. Things had started to get a little worse and, well, we don't have health insurance yet. So, going to the ER, they HAVE to check you out, despite your ability to pay right away. So, we found Will a sitter (We really have GREAT neighbors) and we headed to the ER. I know, I feel like it should have been rushed as well, but it wasn't. We took our time. We even stopped at Wendy's to get some food before we got to LDS Hospital. I was seen immediately (no wait, go figure.) Of course, there were the regular tests, blood and urine. I used to really hate needles and blood. After a week straight of blood tests every four hours, needles and blood are a piece of cake. Then, I had an ultra sound. I guess now would be a good time to mention that I have an IUD in place and the thought is that it has shifted just enough to cause some issues. So, I was wheeled up to the radiology department for ultra sounds. (Yes, I felt incredibly ridiculous being wheeled around even though I could walk just fine.) I had some ultra sounds done. My IUD seems to be in place, but there is a fragment of something where it shouldn't be. The radiologist has never seen anything like that before. So, then it was time for the really, really great part. The pelvic exam. Yummmm-o! haha, according to the ER DR...every thing seems normal, so I need to go see my OB...

I know what you are all thinking, What? That's it? Everything seems normal?

Yeah, that's how I feel too. To top it off, the DR said, "You should go see your OB. We'll release you now. I'll go get your papers and have someone take that IV out of your arm. Have a nice night"

Seriously? There is some sort of funky in my uterus showing up on the ultrasound and you're saying everything SEEMS fine? Are you kidding me? I don't understand it.

Oh, and I'm not pregnant. So, that's not my problem.
