McCulloch Family said...

Bless your heart.

Laura~Licious said...

What a B!!!! Seriously! UGH!!!! She's jsut jealous TAMN! She's doesnt have adorabele twin feti!!!

Miss Jen said...

Poor you! But think of who you might pass them on to? Frownsmile and all.

Janet said...

Wow ... like is your rain as queen empress ruler of the wives club over? I think I've lost my will to live.

Leslie said...

turn that frownsmile upside down with a little retail therapy. if those shoes are from nordy's they will still take a return - even though they are so last season!

Kristina P. said...

I wonder if she's trying to send a message. I wonder what it could be?

She probably knows how giving you are to the needy, and was dropping them off so you can pass them on to poor people.

Nicki said...

Take her last weeks homemade cookies as a thank you gift.
BTW, my name is also Nicole, but I am no way as cool as you!

kits54 said...

Turn her in for littering/and or not recycling. She's not very "Green"
(just with TAMN envy).

Nancy said...

You need to be just as "nice" in return and drop off some of last season's dresses. Esp. since you won't need them because of your gorgeous fetiii. you should point that out to her, so she doesn't feel like you are giving her charity. and maybe then you can ask her why she and hubby aren't multiplying and replenishing. it would be soooo sweet of you. (and passive-agressive.)

Charity said...

Classic.

Token Asian Friend said...

Slather on your shimmery-est lip gloss and load those glue guns because

Means
War

Mina said...

HA! Someone to out-TAMN TAMN.

Classic. I wish it were me.

Actually. No I don't.

Gentrey said...

She's obviously jealous of you and just trying to mess with your mind.

Chelsea said...

Um, I think you need to go have a little chat with the bishop about how that Beeyotch is not acting very Christian!

ali said...

Yikes! Sounds like you need to vamp up your trendiness. Just use some of JJWT's student loan money to buy some new jimmy choo's. That'll show Lynzii, and don't worry, JJWT will be making serious BANK to pay it all off later.

RyanNMargaret said...

TAMN just calm down and it will be alright. Remember your divine birthright and all that. She's got nothing on you! No self-respecting person would spell Lindsey with a Z anyway!

Laurel said...

Yikes TAMN! Is it the universe trying to send you a message? But what message could it be...?

The Boob Nazi said...

Maybe they're just not her size! Think positively, come on!

GladysIcanbee said...

What a blessing!!! You know what they say about walking a mile in someone else's shoes...Then you clean them up, paint them way cute and put on some beads slash glitter and have cute little flower pots for your porch!!! the miamaids can help with that.

randa_joy said...

Seriously, she must of thought you were in charge of the ward clothing drive. There's no way she could think you were a frump that would wear last season's shoes!

*tara* said...

what a b! like, wth, right? oh well, you should kindly return them with a mean slash darling card informing her that they are SO last season, and you don't need them

mbbatch04 said...

It's ok TAMN. Just go through your closet and find a nice dress from last season and take it to her. Leave a note that says something like:

Thanx SOOO much for the shoes! Here's a dress that I think is totally you! I understand if it's not your size but I am a wiz at sewing and I would be glad to take it out for you! =)

emily said...

omg tamn, can't believe she had the audacity to think you wouldn't know they were last season's!!??!! better give her one of this season's to show her how truly selfless you are;-)

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

Okay, so I don't think we need to panick until you overhear her call you "Red-Flag TAMN". If that happens, its time to do something really rude back...like take her usual seat at sacrament meeting.

You should totally cut the material from the shoes into thin strips and make a baby day countdown chain with them. Not only is it eco friendly recycling, but it would give your feti something nobody else has: A designer countdown chain.
Awesome?
Awesome.

Jo said...

One of the two reasons.
1. She knows you are her only serious competition and she is hoping you are dumb enough to wear them so you won't be anymore
2. She has heard of your righteousness and she knows you will bless other people's lives with her shoes. There are people out there, who are not just ONE season out of date, but YEARS. You, can be their darling angel and help them pull themselves up with their new to them shoes.

Christin said...

I hate her, sorry TAMN what a trial for you!

tll said...

"When you defeat someone psychologically, that's really how you win battles," says Pentagon spokesman and artillery officer Lt. Col. Mark Wright. Get going TAMN! You have some catching up to do! She's attempting to battle for the top spot in your collective ward's heart and you can't let that happen!! You are IT. Stop wasting time wondering and asking senseless questions like "Why?!" Pick a strategy and go for it! You will win because you are TAMN!

Chelsea said...

If she starts a blog, that will be the last straw.

dharvey said...

HAHAHAHAHA ! Seriously so brilliant. What goes around comes around. Karma is such a b-----. My gosh, that is hilarious. Your VT dropping off outdated shoes, just as you did. LOL...... flippin' hilarious. Love you, XOXO D.

Talina said...

Hee, hee. That was awesome.

Menner said...

You should totally take them back to her with a plate of low-fat applesauce cookies and tell her that they're too big for your teensy feet, but thanks anyway.

Mom said...

Even "if the shoe fits, don't wear it" Her actions show she is indeed testing you. Just ignore her - she'll go away. You'll always rule TAMN! The best defense is a good offense and don't play her game! You are not a game player unless it's BUNKO

keighty said...

She's your VT? Naturally. She probably researched/snooped around about you and figured out your goals for self improvement and showed her spintsy spiteful colors!

Tell her kthanks, but your precious feet didn't swell a bit in your pregnancy, so you'll stick with your (insert super cute trendy expensive shoes here).

kris and judd said...

I have to agree with Jo. Clearly you are her biggest competition, and she's trying to show off her righteousness by "selflessly" giving away her shoes. But her evil interior motive is to humiliate you by watching you embarass yourself in last season shoes. You should sit her down and kindly explain to her that there are unfortunate frumps all over the world that would really appreciate these shoes and she should focus on helping the truly needy.

skcoe said...

Oh no she DIT'NT.

Sadie, Corey and Cailyn said...

Carma doesn't care who you are...it always comes around. Just do the bigger person (I mean bigger in the rightous-do the right thing-humble way) and just give them to the fump you VT. Nothing like passing it all along!

kbradley said...

Oh no she didn't!

Melinda said...

I liked the idea of turning the shoes into flowerpots. You can give her a flower in her lame shoe for Mother's Day! You can give every woman in the ward a flower for Mother's Day in Lynzii's shoes! Include a note thanking Lynzii for her generosity in donating the shoes, and pointing out that you just couldn't imagine a better use for shoes as big as hers.

Sarah said...

She must've found your blog!

Scrap Happy said...

Maybe her feet are just bigger than yours, and thought you could use them with your swollen pregger-toes. Little does she know that YOUR feet would NEVER swell up.

Heart Mommy said...

Tamners- They weren't FOR you, they are still hers and she neeeeeds your help fixing them up and finding some last season clothes to go with them... It's okay that you had a moment but don't get your "Brighams" in a bunch. Just make up a darling spread sheet with fantastic things to wear and tell her that she was so generous to think you have such impressive, awesome taste as to help her.... Besides you're the Bigger spirit/smaller size; they didn't fit anyway!

Bradley, DeAnna, and Donovan said...

Maybe you should add some different color highlights and get a darker tan. Then maybe she will get the hint and realize that she can't compete with your greatness. I feel for you, she sounds like a total B.

www.jsayreallen.com said...

She launched a pre-emptive strike against your highness.

It's totally time for the Ex-lax casserole.

myimaginaryblog said...

What size are the shoes? I'll take them. Except I'm pretty sure my feet are too big for them. I could eBay them for you . . .

(But I really like the idea of making them into flower pots, too, or a baby countdown chain.)

Shlepn7 said...

Why? Did she think you were making a run to DI or something?

♥georgie♥ said...

The nerve!!!! I know a good hitman...i kid i kid like i could ever have anyone knocked off cuz they have better shoes/boots than me pfffft
;-)

Katie said...

perhaps she's reading your blog.....and stealing all your ihdyeas before you actually get to do them.

Maybe go private?

I can't believe she would do that. Maybe you should go talk to the bishop and let him know how mean she's being.

Ashley said...

Seriously hilarious!!

Steve & Alli said...

Ugh!
Seriously?
I'd set them on fire...

Kari said...

{{sassy gasp(slash)frowny smile}}

I SeRiOuSly hate that liddle bee! Just kno that all ur eBFFS think

you
are
way
hawter :)

The Mostess said...

I'm *so* sure!!

Heidi Ashworth said...

Whoa! She is proving to bigger competition than I had previously thought. Sad.

b. said...

That wasn't lynzii, that was karma.{frownsmile}

DEANNA said...

Oh seriously that beeotch!

Burn em

or sell em

or better yet...

Glitter and bedazzle them up and give them back to her saying you thought she was asking for help with them!!!

holly shaw said...

I'm really surprised that you haven't even posted you new years resolutions Hello this is your journal and i know that if i follow yours I'll be choosing the right.

stillclueless said...

I vote for the flower pot idea. I mean, what else could they be for???

Unless she found out about Ruth? You could thank her profusely for helping with Ruth who doesn't even know enough to mind wearing such out of date things and, after all, your hand-me-downs wouldn't do Ruth any good at all since her feet are so much larger, kind of like Lynzii's.

Competition? Not even possible. You're way above that, babe.

mitch, pam and the rhoadants said...

She has obviously been reading your blog and thinks it's OK to steal service ideas. You should definitely talk to the Bish and get her disciplined...at the very least she shouldn't be able to go near your blog (like a restraining order).

I think she use to be in MY ward...WATCH OUT bc she use to stock the Mia advisor. She said she was going to use her baby names, and even worse she stoll like all of her vinyl sayings.

Rebecca said...

How about sending her a note thanking her for the dress-up shoes for your little girl, and you'll put them away for when she's 3 or 4 since her feet are no bigger than a grape?

Chelle said...

What's that saying again?...Karmas a Biotch?!

Greg and Amy said...

Hilarious!

Manama mama said...

Am I the only one that thinks used shoes, no matter what season, are nasty???

ukyankoz said...

Ok, I think this will always be my fave post of 2009!

TAMNers you ROCK!!

Lauren said...

OH


CRAP!

Lauren said...

OH


CRAP!

ABCD Clapp said...

I think she was too embarrassed to ask you to put them on ebay for her to make some extra cash! Just an op for service!!!

Brooke said...

I'm with Manama mama ... used shoes are gross.

Matchbox Mom said...

yikes.
Doesn't she know you don't WEAR last SEASON shoes? duh.
What a DUMMY...

Super Step-Mom said...

She probably got them off of E-Bay and clearly doesn't know they are last season's. What a pity....

Julie de Azevedo said...

Peeeeerfect Mia Maid activity!
Bedazzle and glitter them for this week's activity, and have 'em wear all wear them Sunday for a Sac Meeting Fashion Show! What other leader hands out free Blahnik, Choo, Louboutin shoes at mutual? You will be the MOST popular AND inspired YW leader EVER. Your YM will be totally defrumpified, and there parents will heart you!!!

Allison and Mason: said...

She's probably one of these girls that reads your blog who is trying to become you - or totally drive you mad.

Karen said...

wear them! show you are not matirilstic!!

or make them into shoe pots

Molly Doe said...

She doesn't have her own blog, does she? So obviously your the better person. Plus the bish chose you to teach the young women, not her, so again, your way more richous.

Hobley said...

oh no she didn't. tamn doesn't take c-r-a-p like that. she prolly just jealous cuz you're that much hotter than her.
