InstaFunday Sunday

I'm going to start something new (for me...others have done it before) and start weekly post every sunday called...

Insta-Funday Sunday

I'll basically be posting my favorite instagrams from the week.  Nothing too crazy, just a fun way to remember what i did this week..  If you choose to join me and do the same, connect with me and we can all insta-funday together.  It also is a great reminder to take pictures of my child and life.  You forget sometimes that the little things are worth documenting, too!

Let's get to it.

Enjoying Dad's fball game.  

My tues/thurs new routine.  Sometimes, yes, i do swim in the dark.  I have been watching a lot of criminal Minds this week, too, so that doesnt help...

#SYATP See You At The Pole- Great sight wednesday morning.

Pumpkin Picking season!  Pretty awesome to watch them launch them across the field! :)
So this Tuesday is the start of something new.  I will  be apart if this hunting season with nathan.  We headed to Farm King in Kewanee to get me some warm coveralls and then headed out to set up the two-person tree stand.  I won't lie, I'm kinda nervous.  But quality time spent with the hubs.  

Ok...that's all InstaFunday- Sunday is... easy and painless, but a way for me to document my life.  Connect if you wanna!  Im planning on doing this every week.  CHOW!!

to Ginger...
to your 1200 lbs of greatness that went to the butcher Monday afternoon.  There is a whole new appreciation for livestock what they/she will provide for my family.
You were the start of what is to be a great foundational investment. (Possibly even college for the kids)  

to football...

Bringing together small towns, Bringing so much joy to my man...and to the extra paycheck come November! **Nathan's getting gitty tonight watching the broncos, too.**
And Ruthie loves it too!

to the "Blue Monster..."

I'm here!! I'm here!!!

Man...I'm sorry.  I feel slightly like I I've let followers down.  I seriously find good blog posts every week and LONG to post something, but thennnn... I dont.  But this weekend, Joel made me feel better in his sermon. 

A pretty famous Christian author/blogger,  don't ask me the name...I'm barely suprised I remember the entirety of this point...commented on why he didn't have a Twitter. His response:  To have any kind of social networking is a plea for a witness in our quote- Shall We Dance (imdb, 2004)
'Beverly Clark: We need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet... I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things... all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying 'Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness'."' 
I have a witness to my life, in my marriage in my family.  The validation through others through Twitter is unnessisary.

Ok, back to Linz talking...I love that movie quote first off.  But it's true.  I find validation through my interactions on FB, blogger, Instagram, etc. (don't really want to keep going for fear of severe insecurity).  But by not posting (forgetting to post) I was investing in my hopefully it was for the positive aka Rue.

But on the flip side of this I've missed those moments of just spilling my guts out in a post or coming back and just grinning at my display of prime witty-ness.  I love telling people about Rue and how awkwardly redneck adorable anti-technological my husband is... i know you hear Moose's voice when i talk about him or shed a tear or two when i look back in awe of God's timing of Rue and the house and the greatness that was August of 2012.  I don't want to say that I'm not acting real outside of my blog, but quite opposite; the people that I'm the most real with (the people that care enough the check me out on FB or blogger) get to see me even more raw (rawer??-not sure:)  

So I'm gonna be the come back kid!  I'm gonna post again! And more often! And more deep...well, and less deep too... A person of my nature can only be so serious.  

Remember me... The Winey wife.. Yea, I'm back. 

Ps and just because I have the cutest baby ever... Squinch! A fan fav...
