bc bedrest means I do what I want ;)

YOU GUYS!!!!

JJWT and me are having a teensy differince and I need your opinions bc my major life decisions are often influenced slash usually revolve around blog reader input!!!

JJWT WON'T LET ME WEAR MY FAVORITE PRE-MARRIAGE SPARKLY HALTER TO TONITE'S STAKE DANCE WE'RE CHAPPERONING!!!!!! HE SAYS IT'S "BAD-RIDICULOUS, NOT GOOD-RIDICULOUS" TO WEAR IT THEIR. I SAY, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE IT!!! And it's not like he minded on our last cruise so I just don't see what the biggie dill is.

WHOSE RIGHT!?!?

You, ALWAYS!!!!!

Sue said...

SO. MEAN.

Kathy said...

Sounds like tuck and pin time!

Mommy Madness said...

Seriously, you are!!!!!!!:)

gina said...

tamn you are clearly the correct one. no offense to JJWT, but "the plan" is not a cafeteria plan. he can't pick and choose when it's appropiate to wear your pre-marriage halter. just ask him if he wants you to start looking like ruth. lol!!!

Megz said...

Seems like JJWT is just a little jealous-ridiculous that some little deacon is going to be eyeing his woman.
But seriously. If he can wear his super tight tee that will have the beehives drooling, why can't you have a little fun too? SHAKE IT BABY!

Johnny Metropolis said...

JJWT is the patriarch of your home... maybe the council he is giving you comes from a higher source?

Did you think to pray?

Kate said...

How is it going to fit over the feti?

Public Artist said...

Um seriously, what is he thinking questioning your taste?

oh...and it showed up in the comments and several posts, what is tuck and pin????

EmaDee said...

Halter as in sleeveless? I'm sorry, but are there really Mormons who go without their garments or fold them under? Mormons who aren't "inactive?"

Laura said...

Just put a tight white shirt under it to cover the "g's" and you should be totally fine. Never mind that the white shirt is so see through that it leaves nothing to the imagination...

myimaginaryblog said...

Stake dance? Next time you should totally set up a mini-baby-shower table where the kids can drop off baby gifts. Two birds, one stone!

You wear the halter over a Shade tee, right? (Oh, sorry, that was my inner Ruth coming out for a moment there.)

Martha said...

Umm, I don't mean to be a kill joy, but I think JJWT is right on this one. Since you were married in the temple,I don't think a pre-marriage halter will cover your ritchus undies.

keighty said...

Remember the four S's, TAMN? Swim, Shower, (whispers S-e-x), and Stake dances. You're totally good to go!

The Sauls Family said...

Wait- how can you be on bedrest AND chaperoning the dance??What will all of the over-35's think??

Eliza said...

ModBe it in the nude shade.

Cassidie Anne said...

is this a test......there is no way you would even think of wearing a tacky halter right? it would look like someone threw up 90's all over you.

Kara said...

u are on bedrest - no steak danses

Matchbox Mom said...

oh yes! You SHOULD wear it...eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die...and what are we supposed to do? cTR...and that's you. You are right. We were born naked, why not be almost naked at the stake dance...sheesh.

my stay-at-home-momma drama said...

A sparkly anything is never wrong!

Aonika and Richard said...

Modest is Hottest...

As long as it's modest, and doesn't cause any sorts of "ill" thoughts, then JJWT has NO room to talk.

And as for the Feti - Music is so feel good, it would SUCK if you didn't show them how to rock out in the womb!

Aonika and Richard said...

:D

Mrs. Clark said...

TAMN, I just think JJWT's trying to keep the other frumpy chaperones from complaining to the bish (and the stake pres) about you. They can be so judgmental! And that would make your heart hurt. So put on one of those Shade beige-color tees and rock that halter top!

Laurie said...

Just call all your Mia Maids and have them wear their sparkly halter tops, too. That way, you can show them how to shake it and flirt totally modestly. What a great way for your MM's to meet and influence future missionaries!
Once Jjwt knows that you are just magnifiying your calling, I'm sure he'll be fine with it.

Katie said...

He is Tamn, you need to let it go a little bit. You're becoming a mother, and it's time to grow up. Sorry for the harshness! lourve ya!

Sarah's blog... and I guess our newlywed blog that I update like twice a year. said...

I so vote for the modbe in nude!! That's how I got around my strapless wedding dress!! For seriously I don't know why the temple matron was throwing such a hissy fit. Tottaly cute, and tottaly modest! We all know that's hottest!

Jess said...

Oh my heavens, I'm just so totally jealous that your pre-marriage halter would still fit you while you're prego! Time to bow down and worship you.

Mina said...

Oooo, well, I hate to say it TAMN, but JJTW mite have you on this won. I mean, was you're stake prez on the cruise? Prolly not. You want to do your best to impress the prez with you're richtousness so that JJTW will get the best callings. Bedder go with the tight black mini-dress and a sheer gold cartigan. And can U still wear your hooker heels carrying those feti around? What am I saying? Of COURSE you can!

::Meredith:: said...

Hate to say it TAMNers, prolly since it's the most sparkly of the sparkly, but JJWT is one-upping you on the sensitivity factor. I mean, when all ur MIA MAIDS see your exquisitely toned shoulders they're all gonna make a bee line for the ladie's and purge all that Cafe Rio they ate before a dance. Yes, throwing up = skinny, but it also = Needy MIA Maids = not dancing with hotty boys to put all your bend-and-snap secrets to practice = downer.

Pity pout.

Jo said...

You are right as always. But like Eve, you need to understand your hubby just isn't where you are yet, so you will need to join him in just a teeny tiny bit of frumpery. You can use this as a way to make your talents SHINE in making the girls look their best without their fav halter.

Amy said...

TAMN, are you going to weaer a sparkly scrunchie to go with your sparkly halter? After all, on Grey's Anatomy the hot doctors were wearing scrunchies last night. They MIGHT be making a comeback. I think that might be a super dooper fun thing to post about! (and I think JJWT is right about this---just cuz the sparkly halter might lose one or both of your feti-enhanced 'girls' if you shake it shake it too much!)

s.t.a.c.y. said...

CTR: Clothing Tucked Rightously.
If you can tuck it, you can rock it.
Also, remember marriage is about COMPROMISE. You should tell JJWT that if he'll meet you half way on the halter top, you will GIVE BIRTH TO TWINS in 84 days.
Win-Win.

Token Asian Friend said...

Tamn, that shirt was so 1 1/2 years ago! Use this opp to buy a SPARKLIER (and maybe an eentsy bit modester) ONE!!! Do it for JJWT!!!

pwells said...

Sorry TAMN, this time JJWT is right. But you don't have to lose face or admit any wrong thinking - just remember that you're on bedrest and couldn't possibly go to a stake dance and imperil his two righteous progeny! Crisis averted!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

You're right of course. You're always right.

Go ahead and shake your groove thing, girlfriend.

GladysIcanbee said...

Bedrest is hard and after doing it well for a whole week you deserve a break so go, chaperone the dance. Wearing the halter could also be an object lesson for the girls--they'll notice and question and you'll have a chance to talk to them about being modest, no tuck/pin etc. Just be sure to wear it with the way cute skirt you wore to the wedding. Then, when you're back on bedrest next week why don't you design the next shift-a nude colored tshirt with the sparkly halter attached! You could even make it better with the your blog logo or "CTR" tattoed on one sleeve!

skcoe said...

Nude Layers shirt, leggings and five inch stillettos should balance everything out, don't you think?

Chris said...

Are the mya mades allowed to wear haters?

Kathi and Ryan said...

If you wear it to the dance you are forever giving up your chance to be the bishop's/stake president's/mission president's wife and the POWER that goes with it. It's up to you. What you want now or what you want in your future.

Hobley said...

if you got it baby flaunt it!

Shlepn7 said...

your kidding right? I mean, if you want to look like a preggars skanky ho from white trashville, go for it. What happened to hottest is modest? I have to side with angelbabe on this one. my heart hurts cuz I rilly do lurve you.

Nathan said...

Layer for the Lord!

Charly said...

JJWT just thinks modest is hottest. You can only pull it off if it has sequins, and you do a dance number of your own on stage! Preferably to a CĂ©line Dion song.

Sadie, Corey and Cailyn said...

What with all the Shade, Modbe and 100 other LDS inspired clothing companies here in UTAH you must be able to find that perfect, barely cover your already tucked and rolled g's, right? You're a mirAcal worker, Tamn!! You can do this!

Melinda said...

Wear a denim jumper. With embroidered flowers on it.

*tara* said...

i don't think you want those pre-mish boys to lust after you...you should save it for a revealing/modest ADULT dance

kris and judd said...

Is wearing a halter top setting a good example for your Mia Maids? You can't pound it in their brains that "Modest is Hottest", then go wearing a halter top! UNLESS, you have the cute tee under it! Come on TAMN, we all want you to be bishop's/stake president's/Prophet's wife someday!

hmm said...

hahahaha!Thats awesome can we be friends! Seriously TAMN I say this with love only girls on Jerry Springer, Maury, or Montel wear halters,tube tops, and see thru shirts you want to be classy not trashy

Melissa Stringham said...

Does it fit over your preggo bellY? Maybe you can wear a shade under it.

Amy said...

Totally awesome of you to chaperone the stake dance! There's no better way of finding worthy YW who would love to babysit your twin feti! (for free of course, since seeing the ritchus exmaple of you and JJWT should be more than enough payment. Also, you can start the snoball dance and all the little deacons, will be duying to dance with you!

Katherine said...

JJWT. The man has the priesthood, so I say.. THE SPITIT IS PROMTING!!!!!!

Kari said...

Kay, dont h8 me TAMNers, but....

halter = s-k-a-n-k-eeeeeeee

No fence or NEthing...still todally LURVE you!

{{hugs}}

Jenni said...

Sometimes your spelling choices make me worship you even more. WHOSE RIGHT. Love it.

ali said...

TAMN,
you know those rules only apply when you are on vacation--DUH! When you are at home, you have to follow the plan to the letter.

Save it for the next cruise where you'll look great pretending to drink wine...

Emily S said...

Being preggo with twinners and all, it will probably look like a sparkly sports-bra at this point . . . def wear it!

Nancy & Ty Mackey said...

Well, regardless of who's right, make your home a heaven on earth, take the higher road, compromise- wear a wonder T under!

Thomas Family said...

Sorry but your husband is right on this one.

Karen said...

I think your dh would like you to keep sum stuff just 4 him... makes it suPer sPecial


Ya no? Your privit time is 1 thing.... at the stake it's sumpin else.

hales said...

Halters are SO last year. Even ten years ago. Gag me with a spoon.

KathyD said...

I'm afraid I'll have to side with JJWT on this one...

you gonna eat that? said...

I say go for it. And wear a sparkly thong to match... and nothing else.

The Mostess said...

You're too hot to be frumped up. Go for it!!

Steve & Alli said...

Wow, your hubby is so selfish but awesome at the same time...Totally trying to hide your ritchus light under a bushel- or something like that...

mindy said...

when you are preggers, you can where WHATEVER!!

Matt and Jennae Porter said...

As long as you have a shade shirt underneath, you're good to go!

Amy said...

I can't tell you how much I hate this blog, but am totally addicted to reading it!

b said...

I wouldn't do it... people may think you are a fatty instead of Preggo!

Ruthykins said...

definately don't wear it. we need to be a good example to the young women, even if it's just in hearkening to our husband's council. is that too churchy? well, i am a frumpy ruth afterall.

Kat Green said...

The cool thing about wearing the darling halter is that they totally won't let you in. That's right. You can go back home and curl up with your O Magazine.

brossettelewis said...

You're on bedrest! Your sofa = your rules. His sofa = His rules. Sorry Tamners, I only say it because we are e-BFF and I love you. Stay home cause the church sofas are dirty. Plus I haven't heard one peep out of you about your super hott anthro-nursery. 27wks...you could really deliver and day now. I remember some talk about preparedness. You better get shopping!

Jackie said...

Um, from a lot of blogs I've seen lately, it would be fine to wear the halter if you were on vacation. I don't know if the stake dance counts as a vacation...

Sue said...

You know, I guess it depends on if you want JJWT to be the bish or not. Halter = Primary teacher callings. Ew.

Thanks for the Nie button :>

Our Family said...

Modesty is cooler then halters anyday.

Scottandgirls said...

Ok. My name is Michelle and I think you are HILARIOUS!!! I added you to my blog list so I can keep myself laughing. Hope you don't mind....

Crystal said...

You should wear it and shake it like a polaroid picture!

Lisa said...

Don't do it! Some sweet frump in sensible shoes will send you home to change.

Tara said...

OK - I am a NEWBIE at reading your blog! I laughed pretty hard at this post. Thanks for your wonderful sense of humor!
