family update!

Hi everybody! I'm super busy being preggo and doing themed parties and keeping track of my twinsies, Alivyiah and Tridger, and in all of that busyness, I keep getting emells from e-BFFs who are all, "How's the REST of your fam TAMNers????" So w/o further a doo, an update on some of my fam damily!

  • Queenie and Glamma are JJWT's and me's moms, so, Alivyiah and Tridger's grandmas, and they are doing awesome. They both have the same hair as me, love chunky jewelry, and there foreheads are stretched oober tight so it hurts when they blink. They are darling, am so greatful they each take the kids two mornings a week for grandma time and to give me a little break.
  • My older brother Derek is doing awesome! So sad he's now 32 and still single, I didn't even know that was even possible? I miss him way bad since he's all the way in NYC. I NEED A GIRLS TRIP SO BAD! FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE!!!! Anyways, he is so good at clothes, way buff, and awesome at cooking so whatever gal he ends up with will be super lucky. He only has one roommate right now, weird. Love him!
  • Spencer (JJWT's brother who is a guy teacher, weird I know) and his wife Ruth are doing awesome, I guess. There baby was born I forget when, and it was not that cute, and Ruth is still wearing maternity pants, which is just sad. There baby will have to spend its whole life knowing its mom is gross in all its baby pics. Remember she went to law/biz/med/dental school so they basically hate the family proc. Worst of all, you guys? They don't even call Queenie, Queenie. They just call her grandma! MEAN! Other than that their doing awesome and by awesome I mean we pretty much only hang out with my side of the family so lol.
More later! Love you!

TAMN-hotness: when do yu find out if baby is boy (suck?) or gurl (love?)?!

The Boob Nazi said...

Ew! She's still wearing maternity pants?!?! GROSS

Sarah said...

So glad that everybody is {AwEsOmE}!!! (So funny that you can use the same word to describe all of them!) So weird that your bro is still single - how long have he and that roommate been living together now? So glad the grandmas have the same hair as you - I wonder how many people think the twinners are theirs when they are out and about with the kids. Aging gracefully is WAY overrated. I want to look 23 {FoReVeR!} I'm pretty sure that will be my resurrection age. Or maybe 22 because I hadn't popped out any babies by then. Sad I know...

And I DeFiAnTlY don't want to talk about how much of the last 6 years I've spent in maternity pants. My poor babies. You've inspired me to change all their baby pics and photoshop in pics of me when I was 22. Who would want to remember life as it really was? LAME!

Gotta go - my baby is about to get my Diet Coke! LoL!

You have amazing talent. It is always a joy reading anything you write, true or not. Keep it coming girl and thanks for making my day even better. Cheers.

Melonie said...

I laughed so hard at this one...
"Anyways, he is so good at clothes, way buff, and awesome at cooking so whatever gal he ends up with will be super lucky. He only has one roommate right now, weird."

Steph said...

It's been awhile since I literally laughed out loud reading SSB*. Love it!

*I do smile every time though.

Elizabeth Downie said...

"and by awesome I mean we pretty much only hang out with my side of the family so lol"! That line is the best. I love how Ruth and Spencer sound like completely normal people - like that's a bad thing. Tamn would feel so sorry for me it's not even funny.

melissa said...

Hey I stumbled upon your blog and I just wanted to say how much I like it. Thanks for your posts. I am now a follower here. I will be back for more updates! :-)

Kristen Noel Brinkman Olsen said...

TAMNers, sounds like the fam is all doin pretty swell (minus Ruth's waistline), but ofcoarse your doing way better. I guess you must have done something right in heven! I'm glad you like chunky jewlry too. I don't really need it because lets face it: why paint the peacock? BUT...It's in ALL the cool botiques that only me and my friends know about. I feel sorry for the girls who only wear small necklaces. You would think they would want to enhance their small beady eyes or distract people from there thin lips or jigantic fourhead! Pour things.

Diana Barlow Blaser said...

This is the best thing I've read in weeks. Cannot stop laughing.

Laura said...

Oh, are you trying to forget that Ruth and Spencer's baby was born on your bridal anniversary?

Kristen said...

Derek's future...spouse... will be a very lucky...person!
I think you should do an update on your friends next. Did Yvette freeze to death? Do you have to see your frenemy receptionist at the Down-There-Doc's office? And is Lynzii preggers too so she can be as cool as you?

Frau said...

I'm confused. You only mention the one sibling for both you and JJWT.

You claim to have righteous parents but your families are so small. Is this why materialism makes you cry? Bad childhood memories?

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Would it be pushing the line to ask how your brother Derek felt about Packer's recent speech? I know, probably a tad too controversial even for you. But still love you!

Autumn Lynn said...

Our "queenie" not only has a tight forehead, but super hott plump lips. I hope we can be just like our Queenie's someday even if we have to get out {frownsmile}...botox is always there for us!

Julia said...

But what about the rest of your family, TAMN? I know you've got sisters; you've mentioned them. Tell us more! Also, why haven't you mentioned any of the marginally famous people you're tangentially related to?

MamaBear said...

like sarah's comment: "You've inspired me to change all their baby pics and photoshop in pics of me when I was 22. Who would want to remember life as it really was? LAME!"

i'm {tOtAllY} going to do this!

christine said...

Wait, wait. Aren't you forgetting that your dad or grandfather or uncle is a general authority? I mean, everyone who is someone has a family member that's a GA.

A said...

EWwwW she wares maternity pants still? Didn't she have the ugly baby like 70 gajillion years ago?

debbie said...

@Christine is right-where were the G.A.'s in you're update? I mean, I have a cousin by marriage who married the nephew of an emeritus member of one of the quorums of the seventy... or maybe he was just an area authority...or something.

Anne said...

I'm kinda shocked that you have Justin Bieber on here, TAMN. It says "when I was 13, I had my first love." Dating before you are 16 is SO not the plan.

julie said...

what is most weird is that you know how to spell "weird." It's almost like you went to law/biz/med/dental school. *shudder*

Fei @ The Companion said...

Ah, the NYC singles wards Elders Quorums: "Where men meet men".

Sarah said...

You've just solved all my fears about having children. Each grandma needs grandma time twice a week. And, since Hubby and I are from broken homes and have stepmoms, thats eight days a week! Sigh . . . this motherhood thing will be a breeze.

HannahThompson said...

Wow the photos came out amazing!!! Looks great!!! :)

Little Lovables said...

Sooo good to hear that you don't have any family drama like we do... you know with someone thinking they are so better than you all the time. I hope to be Queenie when I grow up! I can wear little bitty shirts to show off my super tan, skin stretched collar bones and do some tucking around the sleeves!

Mom D said...

Derek sounds perfect for my SIL Jo. They have a lot in common. THERE BOTH 32 AND SINGLE!!!!! She's also a valavictorian accept she graduated from the police academy. She's not too interested in close and cooking, but other than that they sound like a match made in heaven. We should toldly line them up. Who knows maybe they will have twinners and name them after us!!! Plus me and you wood sorta be related. You and Derek wood be a welcome edition to the family.

Laura said...

You'd better learn to love Ruth's ugly baby bc Spencer's never gonna make you and aunt.

dharvey said...

So glad to hear that all your family members are "doing awesome". I would imagine that Queenie and Glamma are some of the youngest-looking grandparents around. Good news that they live very near to you and JJWT for easy access to "family time."

Elyssium Earth said...

You rock my world, TAMNers. I luv you. <3 <3

Jaime Wilkins said...

TAMN, where are all your AMAZING recipes? I know you're a super great cook (basically a chef!) and your family LOVES your food and everything, so where are your recipes? I can't find them!

PS Can we see some pictures of your cupcakes, PLEASE? They are SOOO cute!!!

Salt H2O said...

So I'm guessing Derek was also your best shopping buddy ever and when you go to NYC he knows all the bestest musicals to take you to? Oh, TAMN, no WOMAN will ever be good enough for him.

laurel said...

Do you have a twin? If you do I think I met her. If you don't, then it was the weird twin thing you didn't know you have, but have out there somewhere.

She is busy being pregnant too. She was in charge of our "homemaking" last night, but decided to cancel it because she found out she was PREGGO the day before and was too busy celebrating to show up, call anyone or anything. We all looked so funny standing in an empty church.

Once we found out, we were all okay with it! Heck being PREGGO and celebrating is #1. Personally, I think she needs to take the WHOLE 9 months off to celebrate. It only happens once every 9 months for heavens sakes!!!

Glad to know your fam is okay! Maybe Queenie could give Ruth some motherly tips on dressing better. You can't say no to your MIL. Can you?

Sarah said...

Laura made me LOL. And I'm preggo with my 4th so laughing is a little bit scary right now if you know what I mean. Sneezing too. Anywho, learn to love that baby ASAP! :) Spence may never have kids...unless they're adopted from China.

katie m said...

Just as an FYI Tamny, Frozen Hot Chocolate will make you phat. Fat. I mean. And walking around in high heels in NYC won't burn it all off. Sorry to rain on your caloric parade, but thought you shud know.

.. or. maybe you were planning on splitting the FHC 5 ways?

Emily said...

TAMN. Here's the deal. I have been told that if I leave comments on blogs, that it will lead to more comments on mine. I have left 100s (3) comments on your blog in hopes that you will come and comment. It hasn't happened. So I am officially telling you that I am no longer going to leave comments on your blog.

(Okay, I still will because I am desperate for readers and comments and fame and fortune.)

Melinda said...

...hate the family proc! Bwahahahahahahahaha!!

Kahlan said...

Your family is so perfect it makes my family look EXTRA crazy. I mean they are already crazy but this makes it look EXTRA. Do you think some one will invent the chunky braclet pillow soon? I totally need one especially after my hubbys neck tie pillow came!

Guru said...

Have you ever thought the reason why Ruth is a frump is because JJWT is a guy teacher??? If he just made more money she could load up on stuff at sephora and get mani/pedi/waxing/tanning done every week! Really money won't buy you happiness but it will keep you from having to buy Target store brand face products.

Joanna said...

Trust you to make me LOL!
LOVES AND SNUGGS!!!

JenB said...

Uh, TAMN. When are you going to blog about the not so hawt side of being preggers? Are you even preggers at all?!

Lolz that you call Ruth's baby an it to take out your agreshun on Ruth's frumpiness and having a baby on your speshal day. I'm assuming it's a boy or girl tho, right?!

Avree said...

Gross. I bet Ruth doesn't even have a single wall painted red in her whole house.

MissGirl said...

OMG! You totally have to set me up with your bro. He's sounds perfect like marrying my best girlfriend!
