Friday Favourites

Wowwee, it’s been quite the week and boy are we excited that it is Friday! Things have been hopping at Dusty Road and I am so forever grateful for the support of each and everyone of you! I love, love, love what I do and I most certainly couldn’t do it without all of you fabulous DRB customers!

We are headed into Victoria Day weekend which hopefully means you get to spend lots of time with the special people in your life! If you happen to be headed out camping be sure to check out the yummy recipe down below…..everything tastes better cooked over a camp fire!

Here are a few of my favourite things from this week…..

Favourite Quote Sometimes life throws you curve balls when you least expect it and I firmly believe they come for a reason, even if we never fully understand why. It is those curve balls that you learn the most about yourself and what surrounds you. This quote describes it perfectly and came to me at the perfect time!

Favorite Spring Nails I must confess that I do not currently get my nails done…..not that I don’t want to! When I am not working at DRB I am at home working on my farm in the manure and dirt and I feel like it would be a waste! Tell me what you think in the comments…..would these nails survive my farm life or should I not bother? I really think these ones are so cute and perfect for spring! Found on professionalnailss Instagram account.

Wow the weekend is already here! It is a special one since it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday….and I get to spend it with my family doing something we all love doing together, exhibiting at a cattle show! I personally can’t think of anything better, except maybe today’s Friday Favourites!

Favourite Mother’s Day DIY Gift this looks like such a fun project from Craft Cuts for those who love to create!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!! It seems fitting that today I start my favourites out with my absolute most favourite Mexican themed food ever……read on to see what else I have been diggin’ this week!

Favourite Food Never mind favourite Mexican food, Shrimp Tacos are my all time weakness. No kidding, I will search out the restaurants based on if they have them on the menu! Here is a fabulous recipe from one of my all time favourite food bloggers, The Girl Who Ate Everything.

Another Friday has arrived which means another chance to share my favourite things with you! You may notice, if you follow along, that I am a soul with many flavours…..a little bit rustic, a little bit modern, with a whole lot of whatever suits my fancy in between! My wish is that one of these favourites might inspire you or at least put a smile on your face.

Favourite Facebook Page To Follow Besides following DRB on Facebook you MUST give Rustic Arrow Furniture & Design Co. a follow. Her style is gorgeous and so my taste! I would love for her to come decorate my whole house!! April28 2017 rustic arrow.jpg

Favourite Color Scheme I may just have found my new addiction……inspired by all of those colour schemes you see on Pinterest I wanted to make one with one of our tops! I am in love with the palette from our Weekend Highlights Tank!!

Favourite Hot Trend The cow skull trend has been around in the rustic and western scene for a very long time but it has currently hit mainstream and I am loving it! Psssst….this top is hitting our store on Tuesday!

Favourite Drink You can’t go wrong with this refreshing adult bevy from indulgy.com. Wine + peach schnapps + cranberry juice + pineapple juice = happiness!! And so easy to make!

Favourite Video Ready for a shameless plug……sorry not sorry! My son and I have been working on a video project that tells our agriculture story. Take a look at episode 001 of Dirt Road Chronicles and get a peek into my life away from Dusty Road! If you like it we have episode 002 up on our youtube channel and hopefully more to come!

I hope you enjoyed todays round-up of favourites! Have a fabulous weekend!

Cheers,

We’ve made it to Friday and another edition of Friday Favourites where I get to share with you things that have garnered my attention and won my heart this week and beyond!
Favourite New Outfit I may be biased but I seriously had a hard time picking a favourite from our new arrivals this week but I seem to keep gravitating towards this one!

Garden Breeze Floral Print Tunic | Floral Button Earrings | Suki Mid Rise Boot Cut Jeans

Favourite Trifle I have been craving a trifle something fierce lately! I’ve followed the Chef In Training blog for about 5 or 6 years now and I am a huge fan so when I stumbled upon this Strawberry Shortcake Trifle I knew it had to be good! It’s the perfect spring dessert and would be great served for Mother’s Day (hint hint).

Favourite Quote Sorry, not sorry! I am a quote junky and love to share the ones that mean the most to me. My only rule is I have to live by them not just admire them.

I hope you enjoyed today’s little round up!

If you think you have a better trifle than the one I found do me a HUGE favour and share it in the comments!!

Have a fabulous weekend.
