Abbie look great and happy as usual.

 

this really rubbed me the wrong way for some reason and made me irrationally dislike Abby, something about shilling dresses on mothers day I guess.

Yeah, the not so subtle "is she pregnant or isn't she" insinuation annoyed me as well.

I don’t read any insinuation in “happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.”

I also don’t think it’s any weirder to shill clothes on mother’s day versus any other day. Instagram influencer stuff is strange: I’m so normal just like you! Use my code for 10% off!

When I read the first sentence and saw the picture was Abbie, I was ready for a follow up sentence of “...and happy Mother’s Day to this sweet godly mom-to-be!”

I also don’t really see anything crazy about her advertising on Mother’s Day, it’s at least in better taste than the Easter shilling because it is not a religious holiday.

Is Abbey pregnant? 

I don’t think so. I could have sworn I saw a pregnancy announcement. Maybe I just had a nightmare?

I think it comes off as insinuating because it's a joint account (meh), so you don't know who's posting, and it's pretty normal to put Mother's Day post and a Duggar together and make assumptions.  I know the first time I saw it I was like, oh girl's knocked up, but then I reread it and was like, nevermind. I do like her dress though.

Any Duggar girls or in-laws shilling dresses (or other stuff) on IG isn't my biggest pet peeve. I know it is for some FJer, but I'm not too bothered. I also get that she and John may be more private and not want to post a long personal message to their Moms online. I know I didn't. I am a big Facebook user and I actually saw my own mother today instead of telling her online. *lol*

But I kind of agree it was a weird post. Too me it felt like: ''Ok. Wishing a happy mother's day because I have too, and now that this is out of the way, buy this dress for 15% off.''

Maybe shill for it tomorrow?

So if I say "Happy Mother's Day" on social media, I must be pregnant??

Dang, I just thought I was chubby.

Nothing on IG from them since May. Not even a tribute to Grandma Mary. No posts about them here since May. Wonder what’s going on? Are they trying to keep something under wraps?

I think they are private people. I have a lot of friends who just post once a year in social media. Or who doesn't even have an IG account. Maybe Abbie was willing to share her wedding and her happiness, and even to earn some money with advertisements, but realised that it was boring for her.

I guess for some of these people who went their whole life before marriage without using social media, it might be hard for them to start using it after such a long time. They might find it difficult to navigate or just boring. 

Maybe we will see more whenever they announce their first “precious blessing.”

JD and Abbie do seem more private people than most of the Duggar's, I don't blame her for doing some of the paid advertising but doing it often maybe isn't something she want's to do anymore. I think they won't post again until they announce a pregnancy or it's their first wedding anniversary.

I have an Instagram with about 4 of 5 pictures, most are of my nephew's and niece's and one picture is of me and my uncle when I was a child. I don't take many pictures and don't like to post a lot of personal stuff on social media and maybe John didn't feel comfortable posting a message about his grandmother on Instagram, so didn't.

Abbie has a personal, private Instagram. Operating a business instagram is such a different thing. If she is trying to run the public one as a business / public relations profile, I can understand why she'd have a drought.

I run my work social media and if I don't schedule stuff in advance, I can really fall behind on posting, especially on instagram where you want things to be fresh and beautiful and you can't get away with sharing or retweeting content from others. 

I hate influencer culture, but I have to admit that it takes work to curate a social media for large-scale public consumption with the goal of making money from promoting products. Maybe Abbie thought she wanted to do that and make the easy money like her sisters-in-law, but their account has much lower follower numbers and she has not grown up with a public profile, so she'd be offered less and be less comfortable with it.

I was wondering the same thing.  It seems odd, that even if they are private people, that they would post an advertisement as the last post.  It was a contest that does not seem to have the winner posted.  In the post it said that the winner would be posted in comments.  JD did not post anything about Abbie on her birthday.  They did not post anything regarding Grandma Mary's passing.  No Father's Day post.  According the Cucumber JD attended the Query wedding solo.  Not sure how much credence to the Cucumber.

I definitely don't blame her for doing a few sponsored posts. I do follow some bloggers and  YouTubers who do promote the odd thing on their channels and don't object to it when it's stuff they actually have used prior to being sponsored or stuff you can tell they would use. I draw the line when it's a promotion in every post and it's for things you can tell they are only promoting it for the money and it is something they'd never use otherwise. Jill comes across that way with a lot of her promotions.

I am glad Abbie is choosing to use her private Instagram over her public one her and John are obviously happier not always being in the public eye.

Could Abbie be trying to keep a lower public profile in case she chooses to start practicing nursing again? She may want to be more reserved about posting publicly if she thinks patients and or families may follow her on social media. 

That said she signed up to be on a TV show so the horse is likely already out of the barn on that one. But in her career I could understand wanting to maintain some professional distance.

So various sites are starting to speculate that she is pregnant since Jessa made reference to Mary looking forward to babies due in both fall and winter... Who is due in winter? Isnt Amy due... first and the rest in Nov?

Eta. It may well be Jinger, the little darkhorse. An observant poster just posted she seems to have a noticable bump in Jills insta vid and I kind of agree.... Its a Duggaroff!

If, big if, the marinated cucumber is right and Jb really said that there is someone due in January, it could be that Jing is due in December and Abbie is due in January...I guess we will know better kn a couple of weeks.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
