yum

Hope the cute new mom I signed up to bring dinner for doesn't mind to bad but I noticed on facebook that she still looked...well, no way to say it except tubalardy, even tho she's already been home from the hospital for FOUR DAYS. Yuck!

So, scrapped my gourmay casserole plans and just got back from dropping off a tub of that Costco prewashed lettuce. She'll thank me. LOVE service!

Your so suttle! Though if you keep feeding her tubbardliness then you won't have to feel jealous and defensive if she ever looks good again.

TAMN, how do you ever get anything elts done with all the service your always thinking up?

bkbills said...

Bwahahahahahahahahaha!

Erin said...

Hey, thanx for the lettuce. Should I spritz it with that spray dressing or dowse it in Cafe Rio knockoff dressing?

BTW, yes I've been home from the hospital for four days, and altho yesterday I looked tubalardy, today I'm looking hawt!

Laura said...

the longer she looks tubalardy, the longer you look superskinny, so I'd of stuck with the casserole tamny. just sayin.

Frau said...

That's why the RS announcements always sound like, "Bob and the kids need meals." Because she does NOT need to eat.

A girl has to look hot so her husband will jump her before her stitches heal. (And please tell everyone about that just in case they were gossiping that the baby came between the two of you.)

Avree said...

Are you sure she wasn't tubalardy before she got prego? Cuz it seems a little odd that she'd still be looking frumpy after 4 days!

The Boob Nazi said...

You're so giving.

Camie Rae Coles said...

Geez! How awesome of you. She must not realize how important it is to disregard the whole 6 weeks of rest thing and get right back into that Zumba class! Seriously! You are SO totally helping her out! Good job!

Emily said...

Am I reading this correctly? She has been home four days after having a baby, so you are taking her salad because she looks fat on facebook? Kind of insulting if you ask me. Takes nine months to gain all that and often times much longer than that to lose it. disappointing.

McKinley said...

Tamns that is so thoughtful of you! I am really touched by your kindness and chairitabletity. Thank goodness I can follow your blog!!!

Anna said...

I really, really hope this post is in no way based on reality. ....

Shelley said...

Pfffft...your doing Mrs Tubalardy a favor with the lettuce. Seriously, whats she doing, just lying around doing nothing? Bad, lazy mom! Just think TAMN, next to her, you look like sooooo rightchus!

Palila said...

You're so thoughtful, TAMN! I can only hope that I'd be so thoughtful if my friends were posting tubolardy pictures on facebook.

Jennifer said...

Don't feel bad, Emily. You'll get it soon enough.

Sarah said...

Wow you are SO in touch with the Spirit!!! I'm still tubbalardy almost 2 years later - oh well!!! Maybe I should move to Zion and start eating only 1 Cafe Rio salad per week and nothing else!

Megz said...

Tubalardy is my new word of the day. So much classier to judge people with multi-syllable words!

Jessica said...

OH MY GOOOOOOSSSSSHHHHHH!!!!!!

debbie said...

I hope you made sure the lettuce was the really bitter arugula kind so she wouldn't eat too much of it.

Pre-fab lettuce? Come on, only somebuddy who doesn't know a spatuala from a pancake turner would go that non-original. Channel your YW Divine Nature and be more creative -- how's the ew mommy supposed to stick to a blah bland diet?

Rel Soc compass dinners already have a bad rap -- too much greasy homemade chicken noodle soup will do that to you. Time to stop hiding your light under a bushel and/or take the carrots out of the green jello.

Kris said...

I'm with Megz. Tubalardy is probably my favorite word right now. TAMN - you did sorta screw up. You should have taken her a casserole with lots of butter and mayo in it with a gooey butter cake for dessert. The more fat girls there are around you, the more you stand out as their opposite. I'm just sayin.

Brooke said...

Her other children and husband will thank you, too. They love eating like rabbits.

Cole said...

haha don't you love it. Such a fun blog you have. :)

if this is true, judge not lest ye be judged. Nobody including you or I Tam looked our days post birth I am sure. Not a topic a would have brought up. Service kudos to you though!

Tracy said...

TAMN you are the best (and the skinniest, no doubt!)

Forget the meal! Give that woman a hip slimmer, the post pregnancy corset! Give a woman a meal, and you change her body for a day. Give her a hip corset, and you change her body for a lifetime.

MamaBear said...

wow - looks like you have some new readers who are kinda tubalardy themselves so they are defensive of your new mommy. c'mon, guys, if all you eat is prewashed lettuce, you don't have ENERGY to come up with a more elaborate meal.

i'm so jealous of the hip corset for post-baby bodies. wish i would've had it. too late for my hips now. :(

GladysIcanbee said...

Did you add some Spanx or a Bella Band to your ymmy prewashed lettuce? I was taught that with dinner you bring a gift for mom, everyone brings baby gifts, no one thinks of the mom; especially if she's tubalardy.

Mary said...

Oh my gosh... tubalardy. Marry me.

ann said...

Best ever. EVER. hope there wasn't a little frog in that bag of lettuce.

shelly said...

funniest yet!

jdb in AZ said...

One of the reasons I'm too defensive about blah compash service wuz cuz a ward member who signed up to help with dinner one night got too bizzy to cook and brought over a pkg of frozen corn.

One year I got sick during the holly daze and got out of the hosp the last weak of January. A woman who brought in dinner was appalled that I hadn't taken down my Christmas decorations.

On the other hand, you don't wanna go overboard either. I like to spoil the missionaries with fahncy meals, but got the bad rap as the house where the elders didn't know which piece of silverware to use. (It's not rocket science, guys!)

Charlotte Prescott said...

This new mom is SO LUCKY to have you in her ward! You are truly an inspiration and blessing to us all.

Sarah said...

I wish you lived by me so you could bring me lettuce when I'm looking fat.

Chelsea said...

Ouch. This one hits a little close to home.
