Word Up, YO! Week 12

This week is a big week for the family. The Dons of the family have never before trusted any Made Man to be involved in our decision making process. This week though, we allowed Amy from The Adventures of JAMC to select the WOW! for week 12. Not only did she step up and participate in the Word Up, YO! scavenger hunt of Week 10, she found more words than any other Associate and is now a Made Man. She has been a loyal member of the family from the start, and we see her continuing to move up the ranks.

But before we announce the next WOW!, there’s some business we need to take care of. All of our Associates really stepped up this week and there weren’t any mediocre Word Up, YO! posts that we came across. There were several that stood out to us, but there can only be one winner.

While Anne at AJD + Three is happy being mediocre, her post was anything but. She caught our attention and was one of the top contenders for this week’s win.

We laughed and jumped up and down (yes, we know it’s very un-Don like, but this is the Nerd Mafia, right?) as we read how Mom of the Perpetually Grounded describes her mediocrity.
Move Over Mary Poppins wrote a haiku that was far from mediocre. She was also a contender this week for the win.

But without a doubt, one of the best posts that we read this week, also just happened to be a Word Up, YO! Associate. Congratulations to The Great Mama Experiment!

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man.

Good luck to all! And maybe next week, you’ll be “made”, too!

Throw your pocket protector in the ring this week by following the rules below.

* Use the Word of the Week (WOW!) in a post as many times as you legitimately can.
* Use the WOW! correctly in your post, we’ve included a definition to guide you on this journey
* Include the Word Up, Yo! button somewhere in your post
* Write a post with the WOW! and link it up anytime during the week the linky is open (Sunday-Friday)
* Link up below to your relevant post, not your blog home page please

That’s it! No mandatory follows, no mandatory comments. Visit as many other linked blogs as you can.

At the end of the week, the Nerd Mafia will decide on a “winning” post. We’ll feature the winning posts with the new word. A new Word of the Week and featured post will be published every Sunday.

Now, without further ado the Word of the Week, as chosen by Amy from The Adventures of JAMC is:

That cannot be doubted; patently evident or certain; unquestionable.
The indubitable fact is that there are no more woolly mammoths or saber-toothed tigers around.

    Congratulations to TGME! Maintain; maintain... you've been a busy girl, this week... looking forward to your next visit...
  3. Natalie, I'm sorry I haven't supported you guys more with this. Sigh. I've been a bit overwhelmed just trying to stay afloat. I'm not sure I've ever actually used this one out loud. Haha. I'll think on it...

    Hi, Natalie-Mama M sent me from "My Little Life." I love your blog title! Would that other parents were so honest! I have a friend who had twin boys when her "baby boy" wasn't quite 2 years old. The oldest just headed off to college; and the twins aren't far behind. Everyone survived, even mom and dad. So, there is hope...hang on tight and enjoy the ride.
  5. This is indubitably one of the funnest blog hops I've seen around!! ;)

    I am so going to try this out this week...what a great idea you ladies have!

    Just letting you know, you are my Date of the Week! But, looks like Eastlyn and co. beat me to a comment for you!
  6. Hey what a fun blog hop. Congrats on being the date of the week.
