Totally shrieking out, here!!

Hi guys! I am totally shrieking out (you know, when me and my mom and sisters and girl cousins and best-best friends just flip out in our special joy-emitting high-pitched way! BAAAAAAAA!)! I have had SO fun making friends with so many darling electronic BFFs and sharing my no-one-human-has-EVER-had-this-much-of-it FUN with you...so much fun that it's time for a giVeAwAy! (begin your own shriek out now)!

The winner will receive a yummy scented candle and your choice of either an "LOLOMGWTFLDSBBQ!" t-shirt or one that says "Want me to put it in Laman's terms for you?"
Two runners up will receive "Where's my JJWT?" bumper stickers! Couldn't get any awesomer, right?!

To enter, leave a comment on this post by 5 PM MST on Friday July 18th. One comment per person and the winner will be chosen at random and announced this weekend after I get home from four-willing. Love you! :)

Even if I'm only a runner up, it would be so cool to have the "Where's my JJWT?" bumper sticker.

KT said...

I was on here about 20 minutes ago and there were no comments and I thought, "wow, I'm the first one," but then I didn't comment because I thought, "nah, later," and then I come on 20 minutes later and there's already 26 comments and I'm all, "Ah-hay this blog is popular," and now I'm like, "I'm going to barf up the 1/2 gallon of ice-cream I just ate." Moderation is for suckas.

They totally think we're still dating cause that's how cute IN LOOOOOOOVE we are!

OMG! This is totally awesome! How exciting. Totally love the blog! It cracks me up everytime I read it! Thanks to whoever is behind this. I am totally addicted and I just found it yesterday and read the whole thing! Thanks!

The Patrona said...

Do I really have to shriek? I would much rather whisper dirty nothings into your ear, late into the evening...

Undomestic Ice Queens said...

T/A/M/N/ my positifely high pitched shriek was cut short by your mentioning that you are going four-willing. As super fun and totally awesome as four-willing is, you must know that four-willing is on the "know-know" list when you have a little bun in that oven. Please tell me you are just going to watch and won't partisipate!

Of course, maybe J/J/W/T can give you a blessing before and you will be protected since you are seriously so blessed.

Katie said...

a candle? boy i sure have been looking for one! i love your blog, it makes me laugh! :-D

brandt said...

Shoot i don't want the candle, I want the t-shirts...

or the bumper sticker

Michelvis said...

Yes, where IS my JJWT???

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I am so seriously acronym impaired. I'm going to need a Urim and Thummim just to decipher what all that LOLOMGTTFN....whatever, means.

That doesn't mean I don't want one, though. I live for getting free crap.

IngridLola said...

OMG I want!

Stephanie said...

Ok, maybe I haven't been reading your blog long enough yet (but TOTALLY LOVING IT!) but what is "LOLOMGWTFLDSBBQ?" Just curious :)

Tisha said...

Hi TAMN, if I won a shirt I would list it on ebay and then with ALL the MONEY, I would buy some colored pencils for our HF&PE humanitarian project with part of it and with the rest I would buy cute hollister flipflops!! Then we could be a 'good works team' because good works was always my FAVE YW VALUE! Except that I hate yellow.

Please tell me the t-shirts come in my favorite special YW color plaid.

Lobbie said...

Not only has this blog brought me joy, but I've made new blogging friends as well who have left comments. Maybe our only similarity is that we enjoy your blog, but in my opinion, that makes for a pretty great friend.

Tasha said...

wow...they all sound pretty good! I would love to be picked :]

Lisa said...

Look at all the friends you have! (Well, we just want the cool stuff so we are juts pretending to be your friends, but whatever.)

Bags said...

Holy crap sammiches! I am going to pray extra hard tonight to win something so that I can share it with my brother who's going on a mission.

If the Lord loves me and I'm truly obedient, he'll answer me...

Robyn said...

Hope you had fun four-willing! LOLOMGWTFLDSBBQ...what?

JaNeen said...

I only want to win the Candle if it is one of those candles you use on those Hot, Sexy, Sultry nights....like I am sure you are having at your place on a consistent basis. If it is one of the bathroom candles to cover up my husband's stink...then i will pass.

MBusse said...

I SO need a "Where's my JJWT" shirt!

Thanks for sharing your very special life with all of us and giving us hope to someday have so much fullness and depth to our own ;-)

Jake & Victoria Elder said...

birdonthelawn said...

bless me dear, bless me indeed.

Julie said...

if only I would be so lucky.

Omgirl said...

You've never said anything funnier than "four willing." And the sad thing is, half of Utah wouldn't get that.

Count me in!

missbritt said...

I love this blog - absolute GENIUS!! (say that in a mad scientist voice)

Seth said...

Crossing finger's for those bumpers!

Jenny said...

So many good things to win! How will I ever choose which T shirt?

The Haights said...

Pick me! I think we knew each other in the pre-existence. I felt it when I read your blog! We are sole sistas.

Melissa said...

OMG! Please pick me! Lovin your awesomeness.

Natalie said...

OMG! LOL! LMAO! this is like, the best give away EVER!!!! Please pick me!

Tricia said...

holy cow - I so wanna win - not because I need anything, but because I used to live 'south county' and I know my luck has changed since we moved 'up north'... I guess my bangs aren't as high anymore, so either way I win.

Celestialgurl said...

Well, drat!!! I can't win because I'm doing this as anon, but if I wasn't, I'd totatally want the bumper sticker. I can just see me drivin around and my very own "JJWT" seeing it on my big,expensive SUV and pulling me over and proposing to me wright then and there!!!! With a perfect, passionate kiss too.

Ah well, the price I have to pay to keep my identity a secret (I'm famous you know). Anyways I can't help but wonder if your own cover isn't going to be blown when you go and order these awesome tees and stickers? Or maybe you plan on stampin them yourself? Something homemade from yourself would be a treasure forrreeeverrrr.

Can't help but love your blog.

Slingnmom said...

I am tired of putting things into Laman's terms for people. Maybe the t-shirt would cut down my time significantly. :D

K Patty K said...

I would obviously love to receive ANY of the give away items, but if I don't win (which is statistically very probable) will you be selling any of these items for purchase?

Mindi said...

i'm IN.

btw, i don't know if i could accept should i win as i am listening to your taylor swift song on your player and she said "damn". i don't think that you are standing for truth and righteousness.

i hope you can sleep knowing that at night.

Jeff Ann Ehre & Benjamin said...

This is awesome!

Alice Wills Gold said...

Never been here and have no idea what you acronyms mean, but hey, they are free, and it's not hard to leave a comment.

Strawberry Chef said...

This blog is hilarious, true, and being able to laugh about real people in our lives like this is, dare I say it, uplifting and inspirational?

Anyway, contest or not, just wanted to let you know that.

Lyndsay said...

omg I [heart] giveaways! I will do ANYTHING for free stuff!

jenny said...

I just found ya. just stop it! I miss UT gals... not to many of ya in Lousiana. Do you have that inverted bob, blond streaky hair cut too???

Molly said...

You are toooo funny! I want to win something. I'm one of those poor, "I never win anything!" whiners. Me Me!

jeri said...

I was just thinking that the world TOTALLY needed another candle/blog/givaway/thing. You are so the answer to a prayer. Next time you do a giveaway you should do some vinyl wall art. Just write everything in the "Scriptina" font and it will be seriously so awesome.

shan & andrew said...

Frek! I could totally use this prize! What a blessing! Seriously, you are soooo blessed to give away blessings.

Dave & Catherine said...

TAMN, you flippin' rock my world!

K. Marie Criddle said...

Anyone else notice that the floating baby looks like an iguana? 270 days until it jumps out of your stomach and tap dances away...wait...what?
