At least it's REALLY cold there, so maybe she'll let you help her pick out super cute coats??? You can totes guide her from her hideous ways!

Brandon said...

Oh. Yeah. If I'd been called to Russia I would have apostatized for sure.

Yvette is a goner.

whyimstillsingle said...

Ew, she'll probably turn into a commie.

Ashley said...

Wait, didn't they stop sending all non-Russian missionaries to Russia last year? So unless Yvette is Russian...

whitney joy said...

so funny.

Janice & Don said...

Yea Russia~ Ette gets to wear cute boots and furry coats and the coolest hats and totally kick-A scarves. Wow. Makes me totally want to go to Russia too. Plus, the guys over there are super hot and totally smart. Maybe she'll come back married!

Tammy said...

ha!

Judkins Family said...

oh poor thing. i feel SO bad for you. that is just horrible.... i wouldn't blame you if you didn't write.

Alanna said...

My companion on my mission-- oh, wait, should I not admit that I served a mission?-- I mean, my roommate when I was in beauty school, had a brother who went to Russia. According to her, only the REALLY RAI-CHUS people serve there.

Go Yvette! If you're going to be frumpy, you may as well do it rai-chus-ly.

Janelle said...

Is that still even a country? OMGosh, I haven't laughed about a mission call in a really long time. Thanks TAMN!

Cheryl said...

That's good. Lots of people's names start with Y there.

strongmom said...

Little to no chance of a tan, but . . . They do send rilly smart guys there, and there wont be alot of pretty girls for competition. Who knows 18 months of blessings, and a love connection could still happen. Just be consoled that you tried your hardest.

Hi,

I just found out about your blog from a good friend of mine. Today I decided to check it out. Anyway, my younger brother is in Russia right now on his misson and is LOVING it. He comes home this December. My point of the comment is GOOD LUCK YVETTE who ever you are. You will LOVE Russia!

myimaginaryblog said...

Bless her heart.

Laura said...

I dont think its' a country anymore, isn't it apart of China?

Robert and Sherry Leal said...

OMG! Well, at least she can find consulashun in the fact that she can hide her wobbly bits under layers so hopefully the cute elders won't know she's a total chunker--or maybe the cold weather will take off the extra wait! The only thing better would of been a call to south america--there she could of catched a bug that ate the extra fat for her from the inside. Maybe Russia has something like that! I'll fast for her. Heck, I never eat anyway!

Mrs.EBG said...

Oh! That's a perfect fit... she's frumpy and a lot of Russian's are too! It's a match made in frumpy Heaven!

James and Tricia Thomas said...

It is... and they only send the 'frumpy' sista's there!!

Erin said...

Why am I not surprised?

Logan said...

Scary! I heard everyone over there is red, like some freaky skin condition or something. Make shure she brings like TONS of good moisturizer.

Kathleen said...

I know someone who went to Russia, and he got really sick and lost a ton of weight, so maybe she won't be such a fatty when she gets back!

Em said...

Yvette is going to get all red and chapped for the cold air!! Ew! TAMNers be grateful that you have gorgeous skin!

Mike said...

I know you're all bummed about Yvette going on a mission (who wouldn't be?) but look on the bright side: all the best elders go to Russia (such as myself, and I AM in law school), so maybe she'll meet a cute ZL or even AP and they can get married when they get home! A little flirting in the mission field never hurts!

Sarah said...

Ew. I herd they can't even wear makeup cause it's so COLD there. She is NEVER going to get a husband. All those nasty huge coats and sister mish shoes?! What's the dill?! TAMN you need to convince her not to go!

Katie E said...

Maybe she can be a mail order bride now...so don't lose hope Tamners. I think Russia may be an answer to your prayers for the spinster.

: ) Paula said...

Heck yeah Russia's a country. Sarah Palin can see it from her house.

debbie said...

They don't even HAVE Anthro in Russia,do they? Sooo sad! She may as well learn to crochet Barbie dresses for Aliviyah, since she'll never have a life of her own.

Kim said...

No Tamn, its a continent :)

The Life of Kory and Jane said...

Russia! Don't worry- she can only get frumpier! jk jk, my aunt is from Russia, and she's super hot!

GladysIcanbee said...

oh dear. stock up on the knitted hats, scarves, tights, frump shoes. I'll bet she doesn't even get to wear nice slacks in the winter....when it's freezing cold....like I did...in God's mission.

Lisa said...

Sad! I'm pretty sure they only send the really hopeless cases there. She'll be so bundled up b/c of the freezing weather that her frumpiness won't even matter that much.

Bingy said...

Oh em goodness!!
I hope she doesnt come back a communist!

mahonica (you ugly) said...

The only reason I am leaving a comment is because I saw that there were no comments yet and I knew you would start questioning yourself if more than a few minutes passed before you got any comments...p.s. Yvette ROCKS!

Nikki said...

My boyfriend is in Russia on his mission!!!!!!!! I hope she's in siberia... coldest mission in the world.

Julia said...

Очзн хорощо!

I have no idea if I spelled that right. It's been a long time since I took Russian in college, oops I mean in hair school.

But anyway, my point is, I had a roommate in college, I mean hair school, who served a mission in Russia and later married the hottest nicest rich guy! Other than maybe JJWT. So all is not lost.

Science Teacher Mommy said...

I think everybody there speaks English though. I mean, if she can find anyone to talk to who isn't in a Vodka-induced coma.

Brooke said...

GladysIcanbee -- You got to wear SLACKS?!! Where is this mission and how can I apply?

Jessica said...

I thought they only sent Elders over there. Does she look like a man?

Laurel said...

Whoa, Tamn... do you even watch Dancing With the Stars?! Alec, both Annas, Dmitry, Karina, Maksim, Edtya - they're ALL Russian (and Polish and Ukrainian)! So basing all knowledge on what we see on ABC I think it's safe to say that Yvette will come back totally skinny and tan with some mad dancing skills, an awesome accent and maybe even some glittery lycra. Don't stress though. Maybe you can go visit?

kmmclain said...

They do wear cute fur hats and Sting sang a great song about Russia. Some good things came out of there. Maybe there is hope for Yvette. They do spit though with that language. It may be offensive to people when she gets back! She'll need all the blessings she can get. We should start praying like, yesterday. :)

kris and judd said...

TAMN, this is the perfect excuse to go...SHOPPING!!! It's getting cold in Utah, right? So while you're picking out the furriest UGGs and tightest (but still modest!) sweaters you can find for Yvette, you can get yourself some too! But make sure you get her a Gossip Girl-like coat so she looks super cute as she freezes.

Little Lovables said...

she must be a tank if she got sent there... holy cow, she'll make an 8 cow wife fur sure one day, perhaps to a zone leader??

jaysbunny said...

Ashley is right! The Church actually did stop sending North American missionaries to Russia because of visa laws in 2008. Missionaries currently there will finish out their missions. Maybe she's actually going to Ukraine or Lithuania. They all used to be part of the "glorious Union of Soviet Socialist Republics". If she tells people she went on her mission to Lithuania people will be like "Litha-what?!" If she says Russia she can sound more exotic like one of those gorgeous Russian spies in the movies.

Andrew said...

I heard they don't even have tampons in Russia. Poor girl better stock up.

Emily said...

Last I heard they weren't sending new missionaries to Russia because of Visa issues with the Russian government. She must be super duper meant to be there!

Jessica said...

My brother is getting back from Russia on December 22. Too bad Yvette won't meet him. He's so hot she would have forgotten about her lame-o mish and gone after him. Too bad he also has a girlfriend who waited for him...

SarahJane said...

A sister from my ward was just called to Russia - Her dad says it's Siberia.

Justin and Olya said...

Yes, you bet it is a country. AND it is the country of some of the skinniest and gorgeous girls! so... Yvette might have just lucked out. :) And the boys are pretty good too. Double lucked out?

Mrs. Schmalison said...

She's a total goner for good. Sad. You might as well just sign her up for the nunnery.

Wonder Womna said...

They're not sending American missionaries to Russia any more because of visa issues. She must have shown you a fake mission call.

cheyney webb said...

I hear a lot of missionaries in Russia get tape worms from the fish. Hopefully, she can get skinny from that way! I wonder if she will need to wear two jumpers at a time because it is so freezing.

Tarnation said...

Cold = eat more = total fatty.

Actually, I am pretty sure that, even though it was closed for a while, Russia is now open again to American missionaries. Either that, or they probably saw the name Yvette and assumed she was foreign.

Katrina said...

Everyone keeps saying that the church isn't sending American missionaries to Russia anymore. That was the case, but not anymore. Visa issues come and go and the church changes policies as needed. BTW, maybe she'll go to the southwest region of Russia. There are actually palm trees and beaches there...

ramsam said...

GLEE is so naughty.
I can't believe you admit towatching it by playing their songs...

and that I know it....

Booher Blogs said...

Ewww...they pretty much just eat bread, potatoes, and straight lard there. You should talk to here about fasting extra days of the month.

Ashley is Blogalicious! said...

I went to Russia on my mission and got really skinny. Then, I came home and got fat again. It's really a Catch 22...she'll be skinny and hot in Russia, but not able to date. She'll come home and be able to date, but get fat again. Yeah, that's what you get for going to Russia. Oh...and hair loss. Tell her to reconsider!

Ashley is Blogalicious! said...

P.S. Actually, maybe if she doesn't take her worm pills when she gets home...

Lovers Of Hatred said...

life is like, really hard.

marilynl said...

Actually, they are sending American missionaries to Russia again.

Bevan said...

I think you are just jealous of Yvette and her sweet spirit. You wish you could have gone on a mission, but you needed to get married young to validate your existence.

Rachael Jill said...

Hmmm. I think all is not lost. My angelbabe went to Russia and was an AP and well, lets just say there is no contest. Maybe she will meet her EC there...
