My mom is famous and do you want to meet for lunch?

You all know my mother is totally famous, right?

I mean, people ask her for her autograph all the time. I'm completely serious.

I love the fact that I can turn on my TV in the morning and see her telling me how to be more fit. I totally ignore her advice, of course, since that is what daughters are supposed to do to their mothers. Perhaps if she wasn't the exercise guru, I might enjoy working out more often. The fact that I don't has absolutely nothing to do with my exercise-induced asthma and everything to do with rebellion. Besides, the only reason I turn her show on is so my girls can see Mamah on television. Which they think is the coolest thing ever.

But, really. My mom is the greatest.

So great, in fact, that she got asked to speak at Women's Conference this year. She's had about four months now to get over her initial shock and come up with something fabulous. Her class will be called "Your body is a temple" (or something like unto it, I can't be bothered to look up exact wording right now). Of course, I am going to go up to Women's Conference, even if I only go to my mom's class. And I promise to repent of my rebellious ways and do everything she tells me to do.

Anyway. I figure lots of the Mormon Mommy Bloggers will be around for Women's Conference, no? Are we having some sort of get together? Or would that be too crazy for the weekend when women take over Provo? (That's Thursday 4/30 and Friday 5/1, by the way.) I'm up for it. Who else is? Hmmmmm?

  3. Your mom is Deni Preston?! She is famous! Whenever I do work out, I usually use her show. How fun for your girls to be able to see Gma everyday on TV!

  6. Deni is the coolest! One day I watched the whole half hour show on my couch. (don't tell her that though...tell her I was in downward dog)

    I'll be on Vacation or else I would have loved to go.

  7. Do you know if it is too late to register for classes? I would love to go. I bet she is a little worried about speaking, or maybe she is so used to stuff like that so it doesn't bother her. If I go up I would love to meet also.

  17. I would love to hang out with your famous mom. I feel cool enough when I see her on TV, because I know her daughter. It's my claim to fame, I'm telling you.

    I wish I could go. I could really use a Women's Conference right now in my life.

  18. I'm going to womens conference... I'm always game for food. What are the deets?

  19. Shhh... I am the most anti-women's conference person you will ever meet. It all stems from working at the Cannon Center back when it was just starting to get big. Those women were MEAN (and all clad in denim -- I mean seriously, the whole campus covered in denim jumpers, etc).
    Anyway, I vowed at that point I would never go.
    And while that isn't an option now I just thought I'd share. However, my favorite dean is in charge of it. And it has taken me a while to get over that too.
    BTW, your other post -- I think that's what I shoudl call my RS lessons (gospelish lessons). :)

  20. Great post Lara! My favorite is the title...I was laughing out loud :) That is so cool about your mom!! She will do a great job at Woman's conference. It is so sad I live so close and have never gone...I think I need to fix that, huh???

  21. 11 am on BYUTV??? That fitness instructor? I tried once, I really did. I would have succeeded and loved it if my kids hadn't kept interrupting, lol. Now I have a new reason to try again, if she's Lara's mom she must be cool.

  22. I totally didn't know your mom was famous! That is so cool :)

  23. Okay - I totally want to do lunch, but I need to bring my own, because I'm in the middle of round 3. Can I just say, I'm really ready to be done? Anyhow, sorry I haven't emailed you - I will. Right now.
