ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Weirdest new's ever, gotta vent bc that's what the internets for.

Just talked to Queenie {that's what Alivyiah & Tridger call JJWT's mom} on the phone and we are in so total shock. Sit down in your darling vintage chair and get a load a this!

Ruth {my hubby's bro's wifey} just got called to be in young womens in there ward.

she's gonna be the freaking PREZ.


Gross.

Seriously, I mean this nice, so don't get me wrong, but theres a whole rising generation of adorably valiant girls who's cute-potential is about to get squashed. What's she going to do, say missions and subarus and professional programs are hip for GIRLS?

You GUYS, she keeps the SAME wreath up all year round.

Will they have ANY twilight-themed activities? Seriously, what kind of guys are gonna be on their dating panel, some dude middle school teacher or social worker? DO YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE THAT WILL SEND??
None
of these girls will marry Pal people!

Sad.

Ya know, I just don't get it. Ruth is nice enough but YWs? She will prolly be oober uptight about no bikini's at the annual carwash, blahblah. Ugh.

It's like having a perpetual bummer in charge of the funnest part of church.

Honestly, I want to cry for these {formerly} darling girls.

you're the one related to her! sorry, harsh, i know. but hey - think on the brighteous side! maybe she'll get so overwhelmed that she'll go to you for advice and then she'll go all alma the younger and pull a turnaround to the righteous HOT example that YOU are? i mean, it COULD happen!!

Libby said...

Wow, TAMN, those must be some super-valiant-cute YWs, and this must be their big trial in life. Guess only the most richus of them will make it through and be wearing modest bikinis at Pal in 10 years. The more easily swayed of them will probably end up in graduate school. My heart hurts for them.

Kerry said...

The wreath comment put me over the top.

I love you.

Token Asian Friend said...

What doesn't kill them can only make them stronger. Or, {gasp} it could make them liberal. SO SAD :[

kris said...

hahahaha! i can really hear you say "none of them will marry pal people!" like it just blows your mind.

there are people in this world without BOATS?

bkbills said...

The only thing that could be worse is if they put YOU into the scouting program. Am I right? BTW what is your calling while you are in W.D.C.?

Que and Brittany are Adopting! said...

Ugh. Who is going to take them to Tai Pan Trading!?!?!?!?!?

Ugh, their totally all gonna be sister missionaries now. Gross.

Stevi said...

I gotta love when you mention Social Workers seeing as I am about to get my bachelors in Social Work.

Guess I will have to be a proud spinsty. :)

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Must. Buy. More. Wreaths.

clan of the cave hair said...

Ruth? Serious? OMG, what if they start going to Seminary instead of Starbucks? Maybe the Bish just wants them all to turn into bummers so he doesn't have to worry about them and like council them and stuff.

Stephanie said...

Those poor girls...You should move to her ward and take over YW. Those girls deserve someone like you being their leader.

Ashley said...

This is my fav post so far. The same wreath? ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Maya said...

What is a Pal person? Sorry....I live all the way in Cali-fornia so i am not so smart about utah things

Krista said...

oh.my.gosh. This is the worst ever. These girls are going to have an intelligent role model?!!

I think I'm going to vomit.

Brian and Janette said...

Callings are post to help you out right? So maybe Ruth needs a lil help so they put her in YW's so she can learn a few things.

Haylee Abney said...

That is so sad. TAMN you are the best YW leader in our ward {psh or I should say the world!!} BECAUSE you can relate to us Mie-Mades so good!! you need to HELP your poor SIL!! give her good ideas on fun activities to do and stuff. Ones that will help them get to the temple, but in a stylish way that will also help them score a hott RM. Even tho you're not in Ruth's ward, maybe you should initiate yourself as their Laurel advisor so you can be there for her. And hey. Maybe in the meantime while you're helping those girls stay valliant and darling, you can de-frump Ruth a little too. Just a {good} suggestion....

The Boob Nazi said...

So when are you getting your new calling in your ward? Or will you not get one because of the twinsies.

Anna said...

Ohhhh my goodness, I guess it's bad that about five people I know have popped into my head while I was reading your post. You serizly are SO GOOD at hitting the nail on the head, TAMN!

Hey I have an idea, maybe you should type a letter--wait, that may be to complicated, nevermind--maybe you should have someone ELSE write a letter expressing your "concern" about her and give her "advice" on how be a better and more richus leader/wife/person. Be sure to make it anonymous, too. That will SURELY make her see the light and is sooooo what Jesus would do!

alainalh said...

We just got a new YW prez (doesn't even have texting...seriously!) who is almost as bad as Ruth and she seriuosly NEVER brings food for the gurlz. Once she even brought...your not gonna believe it...a pack of gum to share. And the week before? Carrots. And NOTHING after that. How can they tell the leaders love them if they dont constantly bring unhealthy, time-consuming cupcakes in the image of each individual girl's face?

And I bet half the activities will be spirichul or something. Ugh SOOO not what yw is 4!!

Mina said...

My testimony is afficially shaken now. How can we train up the next generashon of richeus, hot girls if we subject them to frumpy RM leaders? Someone's not being very inspired with there callings...

Ashley Ann said...

So, of course her Bishop was inspired...bet he fasted and prayed for days about a calling for her. So one can only assume that he had a revalation and knew that if he put Ruth in there the righteous/cool YW would rub off on her and she would become totaly diffrent. I bet she will be trading in her Patagonia for Shabby Apple and Shade in no time! This is a good lesson on never doubting the wizdom of the Priesthood. There is a reason that the guys have it and we have the power of having babies...it's just way too complicated for us to understand.

Brooke said...

I'm really glad Kris made the comment she did or I would have been eternally lost. I had to google "Pal" and all the Internet would give is "People Animals Love." Houseboats make MUCH more sense!

Little Lovables said...

Think of it as a good thing... at least she won't have an affair with the young menz prez like mine did... cuz that would be a waaay bad example!

longlostblue said...

wow, that really is seriously sad. those poor girls are going to miss out on sooo many blessings.

Laura said...

I think you are going to have to do somethink drastic here. Spend more time with Ruth. I know it sounds bad but if you hang out with her at the activities and even go to church with her sometimes you can have a positive affect on the girls. They will see the contrast between you and Ruth and they will, of course, want to be like you. Be strong, it's a sacrafice and you'll have so much to blog about.

Jessica said...

I'm trying really hard to look on the bright side here. I feel so sorry for those girls. But I think I found something.
It's better that it's Ruth and not Yvette. At least Ruth was doing SOMETHING right. I mean, she totally got married right? (Even if it was smally and ugly) Those YW should count their blessings....even if it's a really short list.

dharvey said...

That is hilarious -- especially the wreath comment, LOL ! However, if she advocates professional programs for the YW, it won't go well with the bishop. I wouldn't expect her to last very long as YW prez. XOXO -- D.

dharvey said...

Oh, forgot to add: I realize your disapointed bc you should of been called instead of Ruth. You could give cute makeup tips and have them create darling cupcakes. You would of been a better prez. Bear up, my dear. XOXO -- D.

Molly said...

I really love that you have "You Belong with Me" playing as if it applies to you! So accurate, TAMN.... you're amazing.

Candace said...

Writing "wreaths" on my crafty store shopping list.....

Christi said...

I think you are looking at this all wrong. If there aren't RM/master's degree holding/frumpster YW presidents to compare yourself to, how else will everyone know how awesome YOU are? This does nothing but help you.

myimaginaryblog said...

I think you need to have a little more faith, TAMN--you're underestimating the young women. I bet they'll have the strength of character to remain untouched by her influence; in fact, with any luck they'll be so busy with dance/cheer/hair school/texting that they'll only make a token gesture at YW attendance, or when they are there, they'll be sufficiently aloof and distracted to escape absorbing anything that might lead to permanent changes to their lifestyles or beliefs.

kris and judd said...

Ugh, this means she'll chaparone church dances and make them dance a Book of Mormon distance from the boys, AND she'll enforce modest-not-hottest clothing regulations AND she'll make them do their YW values for mutual instead of Twilight Night. I bet she won't even invite those poor girls to watch the finale of the Bachlorette with her! I think this is a sign that you need to go back to Utah!

AzĂșcar said...

Don't worry, when you visit for a mutual night, you can insist that you ALL go to Victoria's Secret for the activity and when a 13 year old says she doesn't want to try on a g-string you can call her a prude!

Jessica said...

Ew seriously? Gross. Next thing you know, highlighting your hair will go, then HCG diets will be "unrighteous" and then were will we be? What's next? Manis and pedis against the word of wisdom? Someone give those girls a Cosmo, quick, before Ruth ruins them!

Andrew said...

What are you going to do when Queenie announces that Ruth is Prego? She might be doing a little playing around out there. Its the kind of girl who sneaks around that you never know about.

Suvi said...

I CAN"T believe Ruth is PREZ before you... I mean, you were just a teacher for the girls, right? I thought for sure you would be called to that first, but maybe she gets the important calling so that she doesn't feel bad about STILL being single.

Tiffany said...

Knocked this one out of the park. Srsly.

ramsam said...

Has she been sustained yet?

Send out a quick emergency text to all ward members to raise hands and oppose.
Somebody needs to think about the GIRLS!

Holly said...

This is my very favorite post ever in the world of posts. Your brilliance shineth forth.

Valinda said...

My Mom once wrote to my Bishop about my calling, I think you should write to Ruth's Bishop about her. He just doesn't know how wrong she is for the job. I'll bet it was desperation not inspiration. You know the truth and it's up to you to save those poor darling girls.

Lemme said...

perpetual?

you're gettin' pretty balsy with the BIG words!!

GladysIcanbee said...

Frown/smile....hello, people get callingz because they need to grow/learn from them and those they serve. From your past posts, Ruth has a lot to learn and those young wimmen and their bikini car washes can teach her a lot.

BTW, since yur gonna be in Utah for the National Pioneer Day, will you be trying out for SYTYCD?! What a richous example you could be on the TV!

The Queen Bee said...

"No bikinis at the annual car wash" probably THE most hysterical YW quote EVER!!! You rock.

Mer said...

Maybe the YMs in her ward are all taking AP classes and stuff and didn't appreeshate there wickedawesomecool leaders. So the bish called Ruth to scare them straight. Y'know, like when they send juvenill dalinquents to jell to show them what'll happen if they don't change their ways?

We should be grateful for the tender mercies of preisthood revlation.

Megz said...

Does Ruth live in the mission filled? Cuz maybe that's just the best they could do. And maybe there's only like 2 girls she's even in charge of. Better a couple to dwindle in unbelief than a whole nation of beehives. or something like that.

Kathleen said...

TAMN, maybe this is a good thing! Think about it. There's one of Ruth, but a ton of Young Womenz. Maybe this happened so that the Young Womenz will be a gud example for Ruth! I bet it was inspurashun! The Young Womenz can show Ruth how to be hot and richus and they can unfrump her and turn her into a Pal person! This might be the answer to your prayerz!

Garbett Family said...

Help me. What are "Pal people"?

The Stubblefields said...

I think I figured out Pal people. Pal stands for Lake Powell. So Pal people are people with houseboats on lake powell
