Official Announcement!

So, akward, but some sweet frump from the CUB SCOUTS called and wanted me to help out this weekend. What am I, like thirty five?!? Um, no.

So, with gross boring help-out requests poring in, tons of e-BFFs to stay caught up with, The Batchelor in full swing AND Merican Idol starting this week, I've been considering it for a while but figure now's as good a time as any to announce that I've decided to make it official.

It's time for me to go on......


bedrest!!!
:)


Wooohooo! So, for my health, from now on, I can only blog, give advice, e-shop, IRL shop, TeeVo, lunch, accept gifts, vaycay, spa it up, and plan my showers. Anything else would be way to big a risk. Thanx for understanding!

i'm so glad you're taking care of yourself...and the feti. i think we all are. thank you. really.

Token Asian Friend said...

Just be cautious about the meals you accept. Those RS sisters are known to cook with a lot of butter, mayonaise, and bacon. It's within your family's good interest to refuse meals brought to your door if they look questionable.

ukyankoz said...

Token Asian Friend is right, you should only sniff the low-fat meals. I mean hello, just cause your pregnant doesn't mean you have to be a total chubbs!

The Boob Nazi said...

Bedrest is so much fun! You can do EVERYTHING in your bed! (I didn't mean that the way it sounded.) You're going to have SO MUCH FUN the next couple of months!

Diane said...

As a Cub Scout frump mom, you could still help out and be on bed rest. You could just have all the boys over at your house and they could practice lighting fires in your backyard, or they could do a service project for you, like painting your living room. There are many ways to still help out.

Get use to the idea, because with a boy on the way, Cub Scouts is part of the plan.

Katherine said...

You only have 3 months left! I can't believe you waited so long. I hope the feti are ok.

Michelle said...

Oh, poor Tamn (--whincy face eyebrows together--) As soon as the RS pres comes over to see what you need you should have a very specific list for her.Afterall you give so much service, just humble yourself in order to REECEEVE!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

hee hee. So like you to look out for your babies that way!!!!

I can't wait until they're born. You can borrow all my twins stories, okay. Especially if you have them early.

Chelsea said...

Cub Scouts is totally for frumpy moms. Ugh!

Meg B said...

Speaking of showers, I've been dying to know what stroller you have chosen? All us preggy moms that look up to you need to know what uhDOORable TAMN will be pushing her seriously so blessed bebes in?! Bedrest is such a good choice- you don't want to put too much stress on the feti!

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

I'm sure you have a gorgeous set of frilly pjs to make going on bedrest a fashion statement. Good for you for taking sure good care of the feti!

Kari said...

YAY, time to plan your sHoWeR!!! :)

i can't weight to give you your WAY uh-dor-able (and so worth taking out ALL my hubby's student loans for!!! shhhh....don't tell, k? PiNkY pRoMiSe???) PETUNIA PICKLE BOTTOME diaper bag....bAHHHHHH!!!!

Sarah said...

This little part of me wonders if you are pregnant with twins for real and makes great inspiration for your funny blog. If so, congratulations! :-D JJWT had better bring you breakfast/lunch/dinner in bed.

Heidi Ashworth said...

It's good to know you are taking things seriously and totally spoiling yourself rotten. You are an excellent example to the rest of us. In fact, even though I'm not pregnant, at 44, I am clearly ancient and should go on bedrest for that reason alone. Let the 35 year olds handle everything, that's what I say!

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Good for you, TAMN, now you can get out of the "three hour tour" as well. Smart thinkin'

kris and judd said...

What a good mommy you are, taking such good care of your hot twin feti and yourself! You should design a totally adorable dinner calendar that they could pass around Relief Society so that your meals will be taken care of. With all the things you're still accomplishing while on bedrest (you can't miss American Idol!), cooking is just too much for you right now!

The Bradley's said...

It is SO uber-important to keep your darling feti safe! Have fun resting! This means JJWT has to give you pedis all the time, right?

P.S. - I wouldn't eat anything you know who (starts with an L ends with a zii) brings you. She'll probably load it up with fat cause she's so jealous of your super-fertile-womb-garden.

The Bradley's said...

P.S. - I was in Cubs a year ago - now I'm wondering about my frump-factor. Yikes!

Gentrey said...

What's going to happen with your Mia-Maids if you're on bed rest? What if they release you and call Lynzii to take your place?

arianne said...

I read your blog ALL the time and LOVE it!!! take it easy and take care of yourself.

on a side note, i see on your side bar you have a few couples listed "hoping to adopt" I was wondering if you mind adding me and my husband to that list as well. We too are hoping to adopt # 2 . here is our adoption blog www.gregarianneadoption.blogspot.com

on our blog is the html code to add a button.


For any of you readers of this blog you can visit and help our family grow through adoption as well!!

THANK YOU!

Again good luck on bedrest! Take it easy and dont take a rest from your blog!! you woudl be REALLY missed! :)

hello, my name is amber. said...

so smart of you! ;)

Kara Miller said...

Can I go on bedrest even though I'm not preggers?

Charity said...

Each of the 5 times I was pregnant, I always wished at the end that I could be on bedrest, especially with #s 4 and 5. I never thought of putting MYSELF on bedrest. What a brilliant idea!!!! How will you go to lunch from your bed?

Laurel and Doug said...

TAMN. Okay, I totally get it, but please tell me you're still planning on the occasional empty-stroller-jog. Three months of sniffing bacon, mayonnaise, potato casseroles in bed will DEF make it hard to button those teensy skinny jeans of yours. You don't want to have to wear sweat pants to your baby showers now, do you? What would Lynzii think?! {teensy smug frown smile}

Chelle said...

Bedrest is the toughest.

Chelle said...

Bedrest is the toughest.

Shlepn7 said...

Can't wait til your showers. I rilly hope you insist on no shower games. Especially the guess which candy bar is melted in the pampers one. So gross. Where are you registering?

Token Asian Friend said...

Of course TAMN can still empty stroller jog-- on their treadmill!

s said...

Great idea. I think your new visiting teacher, Lynzii will take excellent care of you.

clan of the cave hair said...

Its SO important to make sure you still get in your little personal mini-vay-cays while in bedrest. Every super-hawt mom of twins I know totally made sure she did not lose her personal mini-vay-cays while on bedrest and it was so great for her because it gave her so many super cool, (totally not in anyway making her look like a total and complete idiot) dramatic stories to tell everybody about false labor while on the airplane and all that. You have to really make sure you get those in, right now, its all about the mama...the babies will get their turn later.

Jillybean said...

Here's an idea, Have JJWT pick up menus from all of your favorite restaurants around town. Circle all of your favorite foods then have them sent around RS with the sign up sheet to bring you dinners.
That way you'll know exactly what you're getting.

Melinda said...

Ha! I must be more righteous and gorgeous than you! I'm 36 and no one has ever asked me help out with Cub Scouts! Ever! Sorry TAMN, I rocked over you on this one! (I'm not really sorry, but I thought I'd say that just so I can still claim to be your eBFF.)

Woo! I love exclamation points!

Love you!

-KJ said...

It is a total must to put yourself and your feti first. Plus, can you imagine wearing one of those icky scout shirts? *shivers*

Megz said...

Hawt people like yourself cannot handle bedrest. What's the point of the highlights, spray tan, flawless makeup and tight maternity clothes if nobody but JJWT sees it?? Maybe just have a doc's note saying you are supposed to 'take it easy' and that will get you off the hook with the scouts. Or better yet, say that you have a non-competing clause with the mia maids and can't do any crossover work. Add the frownsmile while you're saying it and you're off the hook!

Mina said...

TAMN, your SOOO giving to sacrifies for the helth of you're twinners. We shoud all be as good as you. (The xample you set alone shoud get you out of having too ever wear a scout shirt!)

Mary said...

It's so smart to prioritize your demanding schedule!!

myimaginaryblog said...

I can't believe I hadn't thought to put myself on bedrest. DUH! My ankles would thank me.

Cristin said...

Whoa, are you sure that blogging won't cause a miscarriage?

Amy said...

Now that you are on OFFISHAL bedrest, you can totally wear those frilly PJ's from Victoria Secrets that you have been saving...being modest in PJ's doesn't apply to the plan!

Matchbox Mom said...

FETI'S come first! wOW...You follow the plan to the T!

CutieFruity/TaylorFam said...

When I was a scout leader at the tender age of 24, I had 2 tiny daughters and ALL the scout leaders were hotties like me. We were trying to teach those boys what sort of hot wifes they should be looking for. So what if they were only 8 and weren't going to bee dating any time soon? Scouts is the only time the future army of helaman will have women as thier leaders. totally a time to train them so when they go on the mish in ten years they will be the hottest elders ever, full of faith with matching belt and shoes.

CC said...

Have fun on your bedrest!

nicole said...

So glad your takin it safe and staying far away from the frumps. What kind of example would that be setting for the feti? Instead, now you can still provide service, but from the comfort of your very own home.

Diamond in the Rough said...

Way to take care of your babies. Bedrest is best!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Love that you can still blog...would hate to miss all of that BED time!

Jane said...

I'm praying for you that Lynzii (frownsmile) stays away.

GladysIcanbee said...

It's about time you put you first, above all else, you are what matters most. Good job!

Steve & Alli said...

Awesome, there's no way Lynzi- or however you spell it- can ruin this, unless of course-GASP- she VOLUN TEARS to help the frumpy CUB SCOUT leader-ewwwwwww

krissy said...

Along with the sign-up sheet in RS you should make a list of the food that you can't (meaning won't) eat. If you can come up with your own bedrest you are certainly creative enough to make up your own food allergies. I'm sure you have them. Such as: "If I eat chicken two days in a row I break out in a rash." Or "Spam gives me migraines."

Kemi said...

Oh d*rn. (Is that okay to say? I'd hate to ruin your richus blog post by being overly profane.)

Three years ago, when I was called to the RS Prez at the age of 31, I thought I might be mistaken for a frump. (Turns out they made me Enrichment counselor, so that makes it a little less frump-ish, right? Right?)

Are you telling me that next year I might get released and called to-- gasp!-- SCOUTS?

As if turning 35 wasn't punishment enough...

Crystal said...

Very funny, except that I will be 35 this year so I try not to take it personally!

Randi said...

hilarious!
