groween up so fast

Just to clarify, not like I'm worried bc I'm not, and not like you think this cuz you don't, but NOBODY GET THE WRONG EYE-DIH, cutieloverbunz and me were defiantly NOT fighting when I asked that Q on Sunday. And, we don't disagree, he is the PERFECT prince for me, we sometimes just have deep and meaningful convos where we advilcate different things by which is a process thru which we grow even closer. Just so you know, I love love love Sundays, and I typed yesterday's post w/ a serious prayer in my huge heart and a snuggy skirt on my tiny bum.


Anyways, it makes me rilly kind of nastalgic to say it but everybody, this is my 100rdth post!! LITERALLY CAN'T BELIEVE IT. A hunnerd is seriously a ton! So greatful to each and every one of you who read my private online journal! Just ordered this vinyl for the outside of my laptop, a little cute quote I don't really get but I DO really love:


Life isn't measured
by the
number of posts you blog,
but by the number of blogs that
take your breath
away.


Unique and confusing, but cute, right? Anyways, in celebration, here'za chance to ask my cute self smore Qs I'll answer in the NEXT 100! Want TONS more TMI?? Wondering why we never talk about my MIL? Wondering how we split up the house work? Want to hear more about my adorable mom? Longing to know more about the DTD? Want me to put up a counter-downer til my baby shower and/or Ruth's "wedding" (ugh...if you can even call it that...)? Want to know what wives club and me are doing to celebrate the holidays? Want to see my ring? Whatever it is, you can ask the TAMNers! HAPPY 100!

Plz raise your 44 ozer...here's the the NEXT hunnerd!

oh, puh-lease invite me to your baby shower!

Chris said...

The BEST parts of the Blog are the TMI.

Also, my wifey and I have those same convos, but we include throwing dishes at the walls to see whose shatter the best. You might consider that.

Krista said...

"hunnerd" - if I had a penny for every time I heard that, I would have a "hunnerd" dollars, I'm sure.

Thanks for making my day!

p.s. First post???!

Jennylou's Projects said...

Please, we must see pics of your ring! And your house! And your nursery!

Kristina P. said...

I would love to hear all about some cute, super modest fashions for pregnant mommies.

And is it OK to pose nude on the cover of a magazine, a la Demi and Britney, if you're pregnant?

Shewi128 said...

What do you buy for "white elephant" gift parties?

Rach said...

I love this blog. Life isnt measured by the number of blogs you post...so deep, so true, so cute.

SO glad you guys weren't RILLY fighting. I've been fasting since I read it just in case.

Plz TAMN, tell us about your holiday decorations! PLZ!

Mrs. Hass-Bark said...

I want to know the answer to every single one of those questions. Please, please, please answer ALL of them.

Crazy McWife said...

100rdth post lol :) You're great :)

Cheri said...

HAPPY HUNNERD, TAMN!

You kill me.

kris... said...

I bet your ring is so huge and sparkly you'd have to totally resize it too small to even see just so we aren't all blinded by it's beauty... right?

b. said...

This is seriously so funny, Seriously.
I can't bleeve you din't have a party fer yer hunderdth post. But that vinyl'll have to do-will you sell it?

We fight at our house...any advilcation and-slash-or advice?

::Meredith Eaton:: said...

BAAAH! Yes plz tell us about your ring, cuz I heard angelbabe bought it from K-Fed when he left Brit.

♥HANNAH NICHOLS♥ said...

i want to see a pic of your ring and a pic of your awesome x-mas lights on your house!

myimaginaryblog said...

Sometimes I'm just speechless. Every one of your posts is just fraught with, um, well let's just say they're fraught.

I second Kristina's request for advice on modest maternity fashions -- seriously, she and I must have been mind-melding, b/c I was already wondering what advice you'd have on that BEFORE I saw her comment. I guess this might be a hard one for you to offer advice on though since I'm sure you don't need maternity clothes.

Christine said...

Chris, you make me laugh.

TAMN, you do too. :)

Western Warmth said...

A hunnerd already? It's gone by so fast! Thanks for some of the best entertainment on the web. You rock!

Nancy said...

TAMN, do you have any idzz for the perfect Holiday dinner party? Tonz of us will prolly at least be hosting for the ward progressive dinner. How can we make sure that the other ward members learn from our oober stylish xample and also show that we are better than them? (Without making them fill inferior, of course!)

Kerry said...

CHEERS! (crushed ice clinking in our fountain drinks)

your new banner ROCKS! i was just thinking "what the festive!" when all of the sudden, the bird spoke my thoughts!

please tell us about your siblings. do you have any? are they ug and that's why we don't talk about them?

happy hunnerd!

Mishqueen said...

44 ozer of what? I didn't know that Zioneers even know what a 44 IS! At any rate, if you are serving 44's of diet coke at your shower, you can COUNT--ME--IN!!!

georgie said...

I LOVE TMI posts!

Lori Ann said...

I rilly want a countdown to Ruth's bride day! It must be kinda sad fer her, though. Not being the hottest in her own wedding pix. But Tamn, you can't turn it off:) Not even fer Ruth's booring, non sparkly wedding.

Janelle said...

If this is you're 100rdth post, how come you dint do the 100 things about me blog thing that everyone does? I totally wish you woulda.

GladysIcanbee said...

What, no give away for your hunnderdth post?

The Boob Nazi said...

Mother-in-law PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

Ashley is Blogalicious! said...

I wanna know about your old boyfriends and how you decided against them.

Barb @ getupandplay said...

TAMNers, you are totally way young to already have 100 posts! You seriusly amaze me! Congraz!

Elise said...

I have to know ALL about your MIL. Seriously.

Mary said...

Seriously, I wood L.O.V.E. to know who you are hiring to dekor8 the nursery or if your totes awesome suprmom is already spending every waking moment painting the purfect mural??

Barton Family said...

"snuggy skirt on my tiny bum"

Total Hilarium TAMN...made my day!

I want to know more about your MIL and how you divide the housework...

Marty said...

Do you have any gay friends?

I am LoW said...

I wanna hear about hubbies brothers???

Whitney R said...

Hey we are almost kind of twins! (kind of sort of like your feti!) I have 98 posts! Almost 100... not exactly sure what I want to do... probably nothing. Maybe a q and a like this!

My Q: Are there ever any days where you just want to stay in bed and not get all dolled up? Stay in PJ's and watch movies? Since Cadubury eggs are back, eat half a bag of those?

Token Asian Friend said...

What did Yvette ever do to deserve your friendship?

Laura said...

I definitely need to see some more of those "tagged" blog forwards! How will I ever know you very well if you don't put your iPod on shuffle and write down the names of the songs that pop up?

emily said...

yes pleeeeeeze let's see the ring

Lisa-Lou-Who said...

Let me guess. He went to Jared?

NoSurfGirl said...

I miss snuggy skirts, and also my tiny bum.

And to answer your shopping question: if your ox is in the mire, I see nothing wrong with making electrons work a little harder on the sabbath.

Michelle said...

I want to see more pics of your pregger belly and possibly some ultrasounds of the twiners. I also am dying to know about the MIL...please tell us more about how you happily endure!

Nathaniel and Dorothy said...

How do you keep your adorable house so tidy?

Jason & Shannon said...

I want to see your RING!! Oh PPPlease!!!!

Kari said...

TAMNers, I have been duh-EYE-ing to know WHAT SIZE YOU ARE!! Cause like, being TOO sKiNnY just looks ug but not having a six-pack is like grosser. So, are u like short/tiny/effin adorable or are like tall/sExY/model-like?!!

Savitri said...

TAMNers, you NEED to do that thing where you morph your baby pic and JJWT's together to see what your hot feti are gunna look like when they emerge from your righteous womb!!

ramsam said...

100 is so much! It is just the percentage we give while serving in a calling... what a great post!

Mark and Katie said...

Bring on the Mother In Law stories!

Sarah W. said...

WOW 100rd! I envy your blessed life! I would love to hear all about your MIL! I bet she is just so great that talking about her just wouldn't do her justice right? Wish mine was!

LittleLovables said...

I would love to hear a little about the nursery! Will you cosleep or nurse in public?!

And I serisly doubt he got the ring from Jareds (that is where mine is from though)... he prolly got it from Losee Jewelers or whatever those hair school people are called.

Michelle said...

OMH Tamners, me and my sis were just talking today about we wished you would give some dieting advice! (Not like you'd ever need to diet, but you know, for those of who do...sad.) Anyways, what's a typical meal plan for you? Any tips to keep the calorie and fat intake low? Help a chubby girl out, TAMN!

Amalie said...

MIL stories, that is my christmas wish!

Carli Webb said...

I REALLY want to know what your fave Anthro item is. I like LOVE that store and I need to know what is TAMN approved!

Rachel said...

I would L-O-V-E to kno more about you and your mommers!! Cos I bet you got all yer fabulousness that is TAMN from her!!! I bet you do lots of super fun twinners/BBFFF/Mother-daughter pedi days!

And ditto to Kerry, wat about ur other uggy sibs?? I wanna kno!

[your blog makes my day, everyday btw :D ]

myimaginaryblog said...

Now that I've recovered speech, I should explain that I meant that this post was fraught with so much wisdom and cuteness, such as could only come from a blogger who's truly come of age/come into her own, that I was so impressed as to be left speechless.

Anne said...

Ok, 2 things.
First: Is it ok to have marital relations on Sunday? And do we obstain on fast Sunday?
Second: If you and JJWT ever decide to reveal your cute selves on the blog, it would be cool if you did a duet to Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliat with actions and everything. Then we'd know what a celestil marriage looks like.

Lauren said...

TAMN, I wanna no how you're spending your Christmas - do you decorate your tree with homemade orna-mints or make it profeshnal looking like at the mall? What delish and low-fat holiday goodies to bake up? Also, what are you doing about those nasty stretch marks that accompany most pregnancies? I mean, I doubt you will git any, but what if you do? Are you concerned at all? I'm dying to no!

Matt and Jennae Porter said...

I loved your disclaimer about the fighting. My favorite part was the comments though- everyone who said you probly shouldn't online shop on Sundays b/c you could do that the rest of the week... but what are they doing... reading blogs? Made me laugh.
My question for you is: BIRTH PLAN?! No doubt the whole natural/hypnobirthing v. meds v. c-section v. induction will give us lots of great TAMN posts!!

jlk said...

MIL and nursery, please!

BYU Athletic Supporter said...

Who gave you the idea to start your online journal/blog? Congrats on a hunnerd.

marcie said...

I've been WAITING 4-evs for you to talk about how your daddy is/was/always will be the best bishop/stake president pretty much ever in the history of Zion. And that you were like, the most richteous bishop's daughter EVER, and that all the girls looked to you for all the advice growing up because your family was so much better than everyone else's (but in a humble way, 'course!).

AND how you know JJWT will live up to YOUR dad's legacy... b/c his was a bishop, but only for like 5 years.

PUH-LEASE. Heart you and your 100rdth post.

Weathering the Storm said...

Your blog is so wonderful! I could use your "upbeat" attitude to rub off on me. I would love to see your ring! Congrats on the "twins". I have a twin sister so I'm not bias at all. Tee hee

Keep the faith baby!

Kimberly said...

I second the idea of merging pictures. Check out makemebabies.com. Also, now that you're preggers, what have people said to you in the stores/at church? There's always a good story in that, even for people less exciting than TAMN. Keep up the good work!

Marisa said...

Congrats on hunnerd posts!!! My 44ozer is full of Mountain dew. I hope you're not 'fended.

I want you to answer all those questions. Not for me, because we're totally BFFs, but for all the other blogger fans.

I do want to know why when I saw you last week at the Gateway when I was in my sweats, hair in a pony, and no makeup, you pretended you didn't know who I was. At least I think you were pretending since I was right in front of you saying "TAMN! TAMN! It's me!"

shel7by said...

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

Rachel's Roost said...

Tamners, we must hear all the details of your bride day!

Mrs. Mordecai said...

I want to hear about when you and JJWT went ring shopping. Also your favorite recipes.

The Bradley's said...

Just popped open a DC to celebrate your 100rdth post! SO exciting! My questions are all about your finances. Like, do yours and JJWT's parents pay for everything? Or are you totally in debt but it's totally okay because he's going to be a dentist/lawyer/businest? Or maybe both? Also, even if you're in debt is it okay to go on tons of vacays and buy boatloads of goodies for the feti that they don't rilly need? Come on TAMN, spill the details!

The Bradley's said...

P.S. - Your feti are being totally inappropriate in the counter - you may want to have a talk with them!

ukyankoz said...

TAMNers, you need 2 baby birds in your header nest, I mean, since the oober cute bird is sposed to be you and the one that talks is Angelbabe, right?

I want to hear all about how JJWT proposed, and how did you no that he was the one (I mean, apart from being totally hot and in law/dental/business/med school and having way rich parents, how did you no??) and also is Yvette still dating the hot guy??

Super L said...

What I want to know is, isn't JJWT going to take a semester off of school once the twins arrive? I mean, this is prolly going to be a really crazy time in your lives, and you will totaly need him to be there and help out and all that. I mean, there is NO way you are going to be able to get through this trail by your self, even WITH your darling mom coming over every morning to help get the kiddies ready and help you do your hair and stuff.

Plus, shouldn't he be focusing on getting you a house and stuff? I mean, you couldn't possibly raise those twins in an APARTMENT, and you'll prolly have to buy an even bigger SUV so those preshies are safe . . Come to think of it, I think he better take off a hole year. I mean, he can always do business/law/dental/medical school after, but you need a house NOW!

He can totaly work for your dad in his Tahitian Noni/Amway/Financial Planning/Insurance company business for a while.

Super L said...

And TAMN, why why WHY don't you have any Jericho Road on your playlist? Aren't you in tune with the spirit enough to know they are totally what the prophet would listen to if he was younger?

Have you ever been protected by the Three Nephites?

Mina said...

Congratts, TAMN. But I'm seriously, so saprized that U didn't do a hundrth post givaway. I guess you can't be totally perfict.

I'd luv to heer more storys about all of the hot guys who wanted you wall JJWT was on his mish. And how they still kinda want you, evun if their alreddy married now.

Skipper said...

Just doing some math here. Let's assume JJWT finished his associates in high school, and that he squeezed in a whole year of college before his mission. And let's assume that he was a ripe old 19 when he left.

Then let's figure that he came back 21 years old and finished another year of college and immediately got into law/business/medical/dental school. And that this is his first year. That would make him about 23 years old.

And if you are 19, doesn't that mean that you were 15 *FIFTEEN* when JJWT was leaving??? And doesn't that mean that you were *ALMOST 15* when he took you to his senior prom???

My question is, how did you explain this pre-mature dating to your bishop/YW leader/parents???

Melanie said...

I think we would all love to see your ring! And how about an updated belly pic?

Laura said...

I want to know all your ambitions for being a perfect Mommy (books you read, confrinces you go to, methods of parenting you will implement). You know, so that you raise totally righteous, fun, hot, worldly but not of the worldly kiddos and still stay righteous and hot yourself...

Megz said...

Do you stand in front of the microwave while pregnant?

Rachel said...

Happy 100!!
Oh I am dying to know all about how your are starting to become a photogrpher, just because you take a lot of (cheesy) pictures!

LOVE. YOU. TAMN.

Amanda said...

Tell us what you do with your SAHP self all day! (Is that a question only a gentile would ask?)

Diagnose Rachel said...

Wow, a hundred? That's a hundred times I've had to change my clothes from laughing way to hard. I'm worried about you and the babies. You never talk about them. What if you don't bond with them? What if they hate you because you love your blog slash clothes slash pedi's more than them? I hope you write more about the pregnancy.
What will you do to fill you time with the hours you'll be awake with babies? Read the scrptures or watch the full season DVD's of Sopranos? B/C they totally get that family is forever.
Love you TAMN!

Love your blog, TAMN ! I've been reading since Day 1; and your writing is awesome. Looking forward to your next 100 messages. Take care, from D.

hello, my name is amber. said...

does you ring sparkle more than edward? do you ever get tired of being so awesome slash adorable? are you bummed that you missed our [me,whit+alexis] SLEEPOVER PARTY?

mother in law, YES PLEASE.

jes said...

TAMN, I'm only asking because we're ebffs and I don't feel like I can go to anyone else, what's it like, you know, um, . . . having intimate relations with JJWT? Was it scary? Painful? Absolutely perfect?

Also, throw up a pic of the RING!

Tom and Heather said...

TAMN, I'm worried about you...I read on Pregnancy.com that you're not supposed to get pedis while you're preggers. Do you think they're right? What if your toes have to go naked for the next 132 days?

Stephanie said...

so, it's hunnerd then? I always get mixed up -- "hunnerd" or "hundrit?" I'm rill glad you cleared that right on up. As far as q's, omiheck, I so wanna know, when you were dating JJWT, did you date anyone else too? like for when JJWT was out of town or something? I hafta know cuz when my bf is out fishing, I get bored, you know? And we're not married yet.... so do you think it's wrong if I find another fill-in bf? AND how many baby showers will you have? One more -- can I name your children? I'm flippin awesome at naming people.
One more question, so sorry. What's your fave fave fave TV show? And why?

Amber said...

I for one can't ever get enuf "I" so please...give us some more TMI. And ya, I think you should do one of those "100 things about me" things.
Congrats on 100!!

Diamond in the Rough said...

I love reading your blog! you make me laugh so much.

Pics of the ring for sure and of the nurshrey too.

Bethany said...

HA!!! Luff that quote. Sooo deep. :)

gioey said...

I know this isn't common, but I wanted to warn you about how some play groups are more like bitter gossip fests where young SAHMs get together to talk about how much better their lives are than other people they know, because other girls they know did weird things like graduating from college, or decided to work to support their family, or are even waiting to have kids until they can afford either child care (so sad! and probly against The Plan) or to be able to stay at home themselves when their husband finishes his schooling and gets a job. I'm sure you don't socialize with girls like that though. Plus, with your super babies, of course you'll need to join a play group right away, because they'll be walking and talking and needing friends to play with way earlier than doctors say babies can do any of those things.

Nerd Goddess said...

A darling, super talented,\ girl like you MUST have an Etsy store. What do you sell? And how much dough do you sell it for? (Though as we know, the satisfaction of homemaking slash crafting is priceless!)

Lindsey said...

I have some questions:

How DO you manage to spend the $500a month that you get in foodstamps??! Lots of food storage? The most expensive fish and organic fruit possible? We all know you don't each much so it must be tough! I feel so super bad for you!!

Also - how long will you be visiting your family in Utah over the holidays while JJWT stays home and studies and then joins you for Christmas? A month? 6 weeks? You need plenty of time to be spoiled, TAMN!! How many baby showers will you be having while you're back there???

Super L said...

Another question, TAMN--when are you going to have your next Pampered Chef/Scentsy/Shade Clothing/Stampin Up/Salt City Candle/Creative Memories party? Because I am totally running out of smelly candles, super modest super tight tops, cooking equipment, etc. And I'm trying really hard to be the best SAHM I can, which obviously means I need to buy more products.

Maybe you could have your party combined with a baby shower, so everyone would be able to get you lots of extra stuff instead of ug baby clothes that you will just have return because they didn't come from Baby Gap.

Natalie said...

I totally need a copy of the Christmas newsletter that you are sending out so I know how much info is considered bragging...which is obviously against The Plan. Also, are you and JJWT sending out a photo card this year or are you hand making all your Christmas cards? Or both?

cbo said...

Tell ur 1st date with JJWT, how he proposed, details of bride day AND worst date ever!
