fAtHeR's dAy {sorry it's late...the internet's fault NOT MINE!}

to my fAtHeR who always presode so manly


{picture of my darling dad and I at my bride day}


Some of my fave daddy memories:
~that time he got me a cute sassy special addition fancy car for my 16th birthday and then bought a new one when I pouted over wanting bright pink instead of pale pink. LOL!

~how he has adorable nicknames for me like "princess" and "emotional basketcase" and "my most expensive off spring."

~the girl's trips he always sponsors. SOOOOO nice and SOOOO blessed that he gets my sisters's and my mom's and me's need to get away every now and again {monthly} to NYC or Hawaii or the Carribbean or Pal to just pamper, rejubinate and get a little change a seen.

~how he'd lecture my dates about pure thoughts but never say a word to ME when I'd leave the house in my playboy bunny halloween costume slash modest minidress for prom.

to JJWT with love: the best daddy in the world!

{picture of me from bride day, with the back of JJWT's head in the background fuzzy and out of focus}

some of my favorite memories of my babies's daddy:

~on our first date, at the drive-in, between hormonal thrusts, I had a prompting that I would write him his whole mission and then bare his babies and they would be the cutest ever. Aw yeah!

~a couple months ago, he changed a diaper once and it was so adorable.

~how hard he works for me so I can stay home and spend the day doing high impact cardio workout videos and deciding where we'll go out to eat. I love husbands but i HATE that they have jobs!

~that time he bore his testimony about how I honor my femininity by working hard to stay hot and not letting myself go no matter what.

Seriously, I know this will sound cheezy and I don't mean it rude, but sometimes I think I love my dad and hubby more than anyone eltse loves theres. No offense.

love you guys!!!

Hahaha! The monthly girl trips to "rejubinate." The hormonal thrusts. The playboy bunny halloween costumes. TAMN, your finger is truly on the pulse of our wacky community.

The Boob Nazi said...

Hormonal thrusts???? hahaha where do you come up with this?

Lauren said...

Hormonal thrusts sounds NAUGHTY!

Trent!? said...

presode = genius.

Kerry said...

A couple of months ago he changed a diaper once!

HAHAHAHA! So true.

Janelle said...

You have sisters?

Krista said...

"Emotional basketcase" really is such an adorable nickname! And fits with JJWT's testimony. Because true femininity = uber emotional.

And I had NO IDEA you had sisters! Weird - I totally pegged you for an only child. I've never even heard you mention your sissys! (Whisper: Are they not that cute? Or are they not married/married and not having babies/working/in some other way not following the plan? They haven't been (ugh-gasp!) on a mission all this time, RIGHT?? Shudder.)

Give me the deets ASAP.

Miss you! Come back home to Zion soon! Sunday School is SOOO boring without having you to gossip with through the. whole. meeting.

James and Jelli said...

HAHAHAHA! Hormonal Thrusts, so true!

Savannah said...

hormonal thrusts. omg. genius.

Casey and Jeannie said...

Oh TAMN, you've made me miss my Daddy. *sniffle*

DangGina said...

The nicknames your pops has for you are PRECIOUS.

Elise said...

Oh, TAMN. It's okay to admit that JJWT changes ALL the diapers. At least all the pooper ones. Seriously. You ahve nails to worry about! It's okay. We totally understand.

April said...

That sounds like a testimony my hubby would give - no doubt!!!! LOL

kristen said...

man, i wish i could get my daddy to send me on monthly rejubination get-a-ways!

Talina said...

I love that your dad never said a word to you about your playboy bunny costume/mini-prom dress. SO TRUE!

Kathleen said...

Wow, you wore a modest minidress to prom! You were a good example even back then!

myimaginaryblog said...

You know, I'd have to agree that you love them WAY MORE in your way of loving than I love either my dad or my husband (in that way).

When JJWT and you got married, did your dad say "You can take my daughter -- and her car insurance bills!" b/c of all your little fender benders you got in that totalled the cars? Cute/funny!

myimaginaryblog said...

(And I agree with Lauren, I was trying to figure out what "hormonal thrusts" meant and had to hum a hymn.)

Trisha said...

**{picture of my darling dad and I at my bride day}**

The "and I" is the best part. LOVE the over correction;)

RaeAnn said...

oh man. anytime i see something on your blog that i have done on my blog I get really self-conscious. sorry dad, guess the father's day tribute was done and re-done.

Whitney said...

Love that you switched to the "pretty" parentheses {} rather than the plain old ugly ones (). I think that really classes the blog up. And then that you went with the squiggly dashes! Very cute. Now you should probably throw in some straight up and down lines ||| to really emphasize the important stuff.

Rach said...

EVERY TIME I THINK YOU CAN'T GET BETTER YOU POST SOMETHING LIKE THIS. Oh, TAMN.

Raeann, don't worry, it's more than just the father's day tribute...it's the father's day tribute with these DETAILS that really makes it TAMN. You're ok.

Renny said...

ew. ew.Ew.EW. E.W. Not to be rude, but ew. hormonal thrusts made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

dharvey said...

That is amazing that you had a prompting at the drive-in that you would bare his baby's. It truely must of bean the sirpit talking to you. Lurve you, D.

J-Dub said...

I am glad that hormonal thrusts are ok. I was always of the thinking that kind of stuff drove away the Spirit, but now I see I was wrong.

Allison Hill said...

'presode' made rootbeer come out my teensy perfectly shaped nose

Maja said...

Genius. Pure. Unadulterated. Genius.

Token Asian Friend said...

Your dad paid loads of money to get all the women out of the house once a month? Sounds like someone needed a vacation. (HIM!)

Talltiffany said...

Seriously, hilarious! :)

Western Warmth said...

Very good. Very good.

Allison said...

"I think I love my dad and hubby more than anyone eltse loves theres. No offense."

I hate the constant competition to see who loves their families the most. I wish it was only satire that you come right out and say it...

Sarah F said...

i love the "hormonal thrusts" part!

Chelsea said...

We all need a little rejubination every once in a while.

The Bradley's said...

I bet your dad thinks having you as a daughter is the best tribulation...I mean, tributation a dad could ask for!!!

Jenna said...

Oh em gee, TAMN. What the EFF are "hormonal thrusts?"

JenB said...

TAMN, I love the description of you and JJWT on your wedding day, with him all fuzzy in the back! I mean, honestly, it's about you on your wedding day!

Melissa said...

Hormonal Thrusts = Levi Lovin'
Totally acceptable for pre-eternal companions... right?

Little Lovables said...

I just hope that once angelbabes gets out of school, he will be able to send you on monthly rejubinate trips too!

and yes, where are your sisters? I thought your closest femal kin was Ruth?

Ashley Ann said...

Your dad sounds like the best dad ever! And why should he say anything to you about your cute bunny costumes?..must have made him so proud to see what a hot daughter he'd made. Bet that he is so proud of you and all that you've acomplished.

WanderingJennie said...

I'm not Mormon, and your blog still rocks!! My sister-in-law follows you, and I'm hooked. Love it.

Laurel said...

Didn't you change a diaper once too? I mean, not that actually CHANGING a diaper is as exhausting as watching the MiaMaids, Glamma and Queenie change diapers, but at least you can say you did it. Once.

Katherine said...

I want to hear about the sissies too!

Stephanie said...

That was so beautiful, I nearly cried. Wow, u r seriously, so blessed. Your Daddy's nicknames for you: priceless.

Megan Gery said...

i can't decide whether "presode" or "babies's" is my favorite... what a dilemm!

yours truly dear said...

hahahahaha.

oh dear...i totally do the pictures of me with my parents from my wedding...

whatever, still priceless!
