Don't you Hate it When.......And a nother tutu giveaway.

Don't you hate it when some one calls you out!!! Yeah, you know what I mean.

When someone talks to you about your blog in real life and you have no idea who they are.

With all the issues that was going on from my hair blog (by the way which is deleted, so don't go clickin' on it), I have become a bit famous. Not the famous I liked to be, just famous, kind of like a Paris Hilton kind of way.( by the way- if you don't know, don't worry).

I pick up my children from school everyday, but on this particular day, all the paparazzi was out. I jumped out of my car, and waited in line with the thousand anxious parents waiting for their little loved ones.

I saw a group of ladies swarming around me with their cameras in hand, ok not the cameras but they should have had them right?

Finally one came out in front, "Hey, I noticed the 2 Posts from a person directed towards you."

I really just wanted to say, hey you saw that too, I can't believe I am that famous that I made some one write 2 posts on how much they don't like me. But, I didn't, I sat there for a moment, thinkin' to myself.

"What, you knew I was the author and designer of Hairs our life, I look at your DD's hair everyday, and not once did you mention you knew of me, or my site".

But don't you hate it when your big mouth shouts out for all to hear, and that dumb foot, didn't go fast enough up there to shut you up.

I simply replied...

What we talkin' about?-- (ya know the line from "Chicken Little").

What in the.....

How old am I?

my 10 year old, in my old wrinkly body jumped out. I don't know why she comes out sometimes, but mostly she comes when I do not want her to.

Yes for the record, I said "What are you all doing online when your house is a wreck?" oops, scratch that.

For this record I said "Oh yea, did you like the hair do from last week?".

Yeah that's what I said..
They all looked at each other, and said, ya know were sorry, but I just wanted to tell you that you didn't do anything wrong from our point of view...

I am the biggest dork.

Don't you hate it when you have to Tonga because of your mouth.

Nice one Dev.

yes, so it is when people read you and call you out. doesn't sound like any fun. then there are those who you know are reading you and ignoring you, and then make knife twisting comments to you in person. couldn't they just post a comment so that you can delete it and be on your way. ARGGGGHHHHHHH, yes i have been traumatized, hence, i am venting. i need friends.

Jan said...

I have been there. We have so many bloggers where I live. Hardly any comment, but indulge in my reads. It is so frustrating at times. I feel like no one likes me for me now. Weird. Love the foot picture.

I want a tutu. Everyone needs one.

Melissa said...

I would love a Christmas tutu. Why do you need to win biggest loser. I am assuming you mean the weight one. If I had seven kids I wouldn't worry about it. I haven't seen a picture of you. But we all gain a little or a lot of weight after we have kids, right.

devri said...


I need to win the biggest loser because I need the money, you win like a ton of money if you do, so yep I need to win, not for the weight but for the money, losing the weight wouldn't hurt neither I suppose!!!!

hoLLy said...

i don't get what happened. so, someone you live near, reads your blog and totally dissed what you wrote on her own blog? and you found out about it?

devri said...

yep nice huh!!

Randi said...

So, I know I told you thanks for the help the other day, but thanks again. It made me curious and I started going through the html of all my posts. I think there were several that were skiwompous (I have no idea how to spell that, but you get the idea.)
Anyway, RaRaRa Devri! You can be the Biggest Loser. You can do it!! ;)
I love the tutu, you should happily pass it along to me.
Have a nice week.

Paige and family said...

Is it to late to order some tutu's from you? I was going to do it last week and I forgot. I need to order two of them. I have their sizes and colors. Let me know if I can still order. Thanks.

gigi said...

I'll sign up for another tutu. I have several nieces. The ones I bought were for the precious grand daughters. Can't wait to get them. Love the picture and sorry about rude people. ((hugs))

Kristina P. said...

Wow, I am glad this has never happened to me. Crazy.

Pineapple Princess said...

Today is my lucky day. I won a bracelet and now I just need a cute tutu to match it!

Fo-getaboutit! Disrespectful bloggers aren't worth your time or gray hairs. Oh, you probably don't have any. Hugs.

Anonymous said...

I am sorry about what happened. I think there only might be a handful of bloggers in Colorado!

I would love to sign up and be entered for your down right bodaciously cute tu-tu!

P.S. Love the foot in the mouth picture. Cracking me up!

Still would like to chat with you about the blog button too!! ;)

Mother Goose said...

woah, drama drama! many people from my ward and stake read my blog, but they never tell. It's like their dirty little secret! PULLEEZE!! whatev!

But yet, they are addicted to me like a soap opera. Come on change your IP address or something.

I remember you announced on your blog another hair blogger and then you opened a hair blog. Was it her who got all bent?? You don't see people getting bent over recipe blogs! LOL

Mother Goose said...

oh yeah, and I have no problem calling Pioneer woman out! Ree has been called out TWICE on my blog! I know she reads me!

Kristie said...

Hey Dev - sorry about your hair blog! Love the tutu's, so draw me, OK?

the fellers said...

oh yay! Maybe I will be first this time...not second!

Luckiest Girl... said...

I must say I have been a looking at your blog for sometime. I loved your blog for hair. I was always getting on checking it out to get new ideas. I will miss it. You are so creative and gifted. I admire you so much for your testimony and sharing your trials as well as your courage with all of us here in blog world. I wish you and your family the very best!
Take Care!

Kori said...

I've never had anyone recognize me from my blog. Guess that means I'm a little lucky. huh? lol Sorry I don't mean to make jokes.

I don't know what happened but I'm glad you didn't let it get to you.

The Tutu is lovely and I am a reader and a follower and I know the perfect little girl to give this too for Christmas.

Julie said...

Oh PLEASE sign me up!!! Yippee!

People can be such butts. You know in your heart what is right and that is all that matters!

DV- Rebecca L. said...

My DD would love that Tutu!!
Hang in there- like you need more stress right now!

robin_titan said...

Come on you can do it! just relax and don't worry about a thin :D

life is not to be spent stressing out over things

The Roberts said...

Devri, you are one talented lady who makes the most amazing tutu's!! I wish I had only half the talent that you do. Good luck on the biggest loser challenge!!! That's a very tough thing for me to do. I give you props for trying!! You can do it!

Pam's Pride said...

My DD would LOVE to win this tutu!! Especially since two of her brothers steal the one I made for her (pictured on my blog)and run around the house wearing it on their head like an afro!!!

The Mom said...

Devri, I finally braved the music player to come and comment. We have several bloggers in our ward (I can think of 6 right off hand) and it's fun because we all comment on each other's blogs. I am sorry someone dissed you. I hate trolls! Especially when you know who they are.

And I would LOVE a tutu. My 4 year old daughter is so girly girl and we can never have enough foo foo in our house!

The Motherboard said...

I have had people refer to my kids as their blog nicknames at church... it sort of creeps me out when they NEVER comment!

Sorry for the blog drama. I hate that.

I know I just won a tutu, but I want to win another one... I wonder if the force will work for me a second time around??

CaryManda said...

i love reading your blog! You crack me up!! I'm sorry someone got their knickers in a twist! Who needs 'em! good luck with the looooozer! ;)
Your tutus are adorable! I'd love to get one for my girls.
BTW what does DD mean??

Suzanne said...

What??? The "Hair" blog is no longer. I loved that blog. I went there only occasionally because, after all, the only hair I do these days is my own, but I loved looking at all your creations. (kids and hair)

Anyway, even after reading the post and all the comments I have no idea about what happened here. That's the beauty of being menopausal -- everything goes over your head (and off your shoulder)! Truly. It's something to look forward to! ;o) (Love you, Devri)

Cheryl said...

I want to win a tutu and I want you to win the biggest loser. It would be great if we could both win, YEA FOR WINNING!!!

Piko and Kanoe sitting in a tree. . . said...

People get so "J" about the strangest things. So drama! Whatever happened to "What would Jesus do?"

I so want a tutu and I need to order two soon... a newborn one and a 24 month old one. I super love your tutus. Count me in on your drawing.

And Whoa Dang Girl you are a rock star for doing the biggest loser. You can definitely do it. Keep your eyes on the the prize girl!!!

Family said...

I want the tutu! Enter me! You rock! Win teh Biggest Looser cuz I know you are dang skinny now! Enter me again cuz I need to win something in my life!

Vanessa said...

Angie said...

You have truly become the giveaway queen and I LOVE it!!! Pick me!

Elizabeth said...

I would love to win the tutu! It is adorable! Sorry about the whole foot in mouth disease.........I get that too sometimes! I think we all do!

Sue and Mark said...

Shame on them!!

What goes around comes around..

I'm with pineapple princess (fo-getaboutit)

People can get on my nerves sometimes..My fav. little reminder.."The more you step on poop the more it stinks"..

Let it go with love!!

Elizabeth said...

I auditioned for the biggest loser and didn't get a call back.....sad!! You can do it, I know you can. Heck, you raise all of your children everyday.......You can do this!!!!

Wendy said...

I want to buy one for my daughter, how do I do that! I don't have good luck so I probably won't win!!

Stacey said...

Good Luck on the biggest Loser first of all, I think it takes alot of guts to do soemthing like that. I could never go on tv and have tons of people watch me go through that. I think you are a very strong woman and you could do it... So Good Luck!!!!! Second i want a tutu. I have 2 girls and this would be an excellent christmas present. So pick me pick me...xx

Family said...

just telling you to put me in again. You know Jasea will look like a Christmas doll in that. :)

Danielle said...

Wow, that wouldn't be a fun situation. I can't believe all the drama some people are causing the the hair blog world. I have seen so many people shut down their blogs or go private. I'm sorry that had to happen to you. Nobody deserves that kind of drama. Anyway I love the tutu's you make and the Christmas one is so cute! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed til the winner is announced!
