As Seen On TV

I've been watching a lot of informercials lately- you know the commericials that typically air between the hours of 1:00am-5:00am when most people are sleeping. 
Somethings I kind of want:
The FLEX BELT. Electric situps for lazy people.

WEN HAIRCARE. The Ultimate shampoo for body and shine. 

Bowflex TREADCLIMBER. Burns calories in 1/2 the time a treadmill does.

One product that I already have... the ZUMBA dvds.
I love it. The workouts are fun and exciting.
The only problem with Zumba is the catchy Latin music makes me want to eat Mexican food after my workouts...

Bald is Beautiful

A void of posting can mean a couple things...(boring life, no computer...etc.) but in our case it is due to a lack of time. I have courageously (and regrettably) taken on 18 credits this semester with a newborn in tow. I always said I wouldn't be one of those girls. you know the awkward ones pushing the stroller on campus... but I am. Spencer and I have worked our schedules out perfectly (or near perfect) and are counting down the weeks till graduation. "Back to School" doesn't have the same joys and hype associated with it when doing it with a baby, especially due to the lack of "Back to School clothes" I bought. As in none. Drew however, has enjoyed wearing his BYU booties and really feels like he fits in on campus.

Despite the mass amount of acne and lack of sleep... I am grateful that I will be able to graduate with my bachelors degree from BYU
"It is so important to get all of the education that you can. The Lord has said very plainly that His people are to gain knowledge of countries and kingdoms and of things of the world through the process of education, even by study and by faith." - President Gordon B. Hinckley
If we could just get Drew to sleep a little more than a 3 hour stretch at night than perhaps I wouldn't be so sleepy in my classes. Except for the 'Geography of Utah' class. Staying awake in there is difficult for anyone.

In other news, Drew has finally hit the double digits. He topped the scales at just over 10lbs for his 2 month checkup. He's finally outgrown most of his newborn clothes and is starting to smile a little. His very light blonde hair is starting to grow in on his eyebrows and head.
For Labor Day we visited Hill Airforce Base Museum and Utah's Kennecott Bingham Canyon Copper Mine- as part of an assignment for the aforementioned class. Did you know Kennecott is the world's largest man-made excavation? And also has the longest name ever for a mine? (I made that last fact up)
As you can see we are learning a lot this semester.

A Traveling Man

Drew and I went to visit family in Georgia for a week, and recently got back.
(Pointing to the plane outside)
a three hour flight, two hour lay over, and another three hour flight (oneway) were rather daunting but Drew slept the entire time. Both ways. And when he was awake, his tiny whimper couldn't be heard over the super loud plane engines.
(Layover in Dallas)
It looks like we will have to look into purchasing a small jet in order to get him to sleep through the night. It was my first time being away from Spencer, and Drew's for that matter- but somehow we still managed to enjoy ourselves during pedicures, shopping, and eating out :)
There was a surprise baby shower thrown while I was out there- which I showed up to in a swimsuit. Awesome.
We have been experiencing technical difficulties at our house, hence the fact all the pictures came from my cellphone and I can't post any pictures of the really cute airplane themed baby shower. 
Next vacation: California so Drew can meet his other cousins.
