The Evolution of a Modern-Day Farm Wife

DISCLAIMER:  This is a blog post full of one gigantic shameless plug.

It is.

I’m just being honest.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way—and humility has been thrown to the wind– let us begin…

Remember back in October when I asked Who Invited the Paparazzi?

Walking to the cattle

Well…It’s time to set the DVR– or the VCR– or invite yourself over to the neighbors who have cable television.

Go ahead, I give you permission.

Just be sure to take over a dessert of some kind.

I’d like to let you know that the video and interviews that the nice gentlemen from America’s Heartland gathered of Adam’s cousin– Derek and his wife Katie on their farm— and of Adam and me on our farm in October will air this Wednesday night (January 18th) on RFD-TV at 8:00 pm EST.

Oh my goodness, that’s THIS Wednesday!

Umm... Excuse me sir, but is that a bull behind you??

Seeing this on the Dish directory yesterday made me a little nauseous.

I'm a Kansas Farm Wife.

I’m excited– and nervous– and slightly ill– as we wait to see how America’s Heartland has put together all of the footage that they gathered into a segment for their show.

I’m sure it will be lovely.

If it’s not, we’ll just forget this post ever happened.



I truly apologize if I look like a dork, a double dork, a crazed madwoman, and/or a complete and utter mess.

No, I don’t—that’s just me.

I also hope my hair kept its hold considering it was windy.

It was really, really windy.

If you have to wash your hair, go grocery shopping, or complete another pressing task and miss this Wednesday’s show, don’t worry.

You can also catch Episode 720 on RFD-TV Sunday night (January 22nd) at 11:30 pm EST.

Don’t have cable?  No worries!   Odds are you can also catch America’s Heartland on your local PBS/public television station.  Just be sure to check with your local PBS station for airdates and times.

And if you don’t have a television, you are still in luck!  You can also view the segment and episode on or on their YouTube channel.

You just can’t avoid it!

Like I mentioned, it’s a shameless plug.  Do with this blog post as you’d like.

But if you do get a chance, feel free to watch this week’s episode of America’s Heartland—even if it is to just get a better understanding of what Adam has to put up with on a daily basis.

Oh, and be sure to check out Alive & Well in Kansas later this week as I have more treats in store for you.

Can you feel the excitement?

Can you??

OK, I’m digging out my humble card now.

    Early in December a colleague and I traveled to McPherson to meet with an organized group of young farm wives and their husbands for dinner. How awesome is it that this group will be featured this evening (TONIGHT! in 50 minutes!!!) on RFD!! Tune in an meet this awesome group!

    • Char, I’m so glad you all were able to come to our dinner. That group is such a positive thing to so many gals in our county. I so enjoyed visiting with you and hope to see you soon!
