    What an awesome family and support group. So glad you have them during this difficult time. Much love to all!

    She is. Thank you.

    Inside and Out, it would appear.

    Yay! for Mormon moms who love their not-so-much daughters so perfectly. I have one too! :)

    –>I bribe my family and friends to help me move with the promise and beer and pizza. It’s only after the fact that they realize that’s what I’m eating and drinking while they move my stuff.

    This is such a great post!!! Your family sounds like mine, rally around no matter what when we need each other. That’s such a kick ass thing to have. Congrats on getting your move on!!! Don’t let Marlo have the nail gun. :)

    With fabulous brows and excellent taste in handwear colors, it appears.

    Family is family. No matter how insane they all are. Including us. The true test is pulling together in times of need. Best of luck as you embark on this new chapter.

  • Beth

    Awesome. But is diet Coke kosher for mormons? I thought they didn’t do caffeine. Or is it a myth?

  • Jennifer Cafferty

    I almost wondered if your mom was in charge of the sex toy box, based on her gloves. ;) Good luck with the move. Glad you have so many helping hands.

  • Melissa Crawshaw

    moms are the best! and someday your kids will say that about you also…but you are going to have to suffer through puberty first (and perhaps jail time for one of them…MARLO).

    p.s. moving sucks!

  • Sandy

    Did your Mom need those gloves to wrangle the bobcat?
    P.S. She is so pretty…your Mom, not the bobcat!

  • twinmomma

    That’s how family should be. I’m glad you have such a good one.

    I always liked this quote–applies to Moms but in many cases family as well, “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no aw, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” “Agatha Christie

    My day is never complete without one of your posts. This was a beauty, and so is your mom.

    its a myth. Mormons can drink caffiene

  • HeatherArmstrong

    It’s caffeine in hot drinks that they are specifically asked to avoid.

    Are you moving out of state?

    Your mom is SOOOO pretty! And yes, beautiful inside and out.

    OK, I kind of choked up at this. Beautiful tribute. :)

    Ah, one of the generation of ‘well groomed’ women. I’ve never achieved this look.

  • momo5n4

    All of us have screwy families in one way or another. You may be the screwiest part of yours, but you guys are awesome! I always stood in awe of your mom’s ability to get things done, she is a DYNAMO!

    Seriously, your mom is a babe!

  • Stephanie

    I married a former Mormon like yourself, and his family (who is still very Mormon) is amazing, generous, kind, loving, supportive. I feel so lucky to be a part of them, despite my lack of “magic underwear”-wearing. They’ve been wholly accepting and warm, and you’re right… no one rallies around those in need better than Mormons. It’s really inspiring. Good luck on your move!!

  • rebecca

    For all the years that I’ve been reading you, there’s never been any doubt how much you appreciate and love your family. When you make fun, it is hysterical, no doubt, but the love and admiration shines through for sure.
