I’m Addicted

I have an addictive personality…..as in I get addicted to things very easily, ha!

And now I have a new obsession.

I received this beauty of a bracelet in the mail this week from shadesofjay. She is a fellow Saskatchewanian and makes the most gorgeous bracelets that I have been eyeing up for a very long time. I finally took the leap and bought a custom designed Humboldt Broncos fundraiser bracelet and OMG I an in love!!

I just had to give her a shout out! Be sure to follow her on Facebook here. I am completely hooked and want MORE!

I have been struggling to make time to blog this past week, I have been so exhausted both physically and mentally. Life feels a bit like an out of control roller coaster at the moment but I think I just need to get used to that!

One step at a time!

I was busy getting all of next weeks new arrivals ready as we are off again this weekend to meet with some family and then on to look at houses and an apartment for the hubby as he starts work in just over a week! My brother is also getting married next weekend and we have a few things to help get ready with that too! Yup, some big changes are coming at a very high speed. Exciting times!

Here is a sneak peek of one of the tops coming next week….

Eek, there is sooo many good ones coming that I can’t wait to show you!

You may be wondering as I haven’t officially announced anything yet…….be sure to stay tuned to the blog for the announcement of where Dusty Road Boutique will be calling home come summer 2018!

Cheers,

My Own Worst Enemy

<<This is a bit of a personal rant but perhaps some of you may be able to relate>>

_     _     _

I am my own worst enemy.

If I  treated others like I treat myself…..I would be so ashamed.

I know this, yet I keep doing it.

I continue the negative self talk. I continue to not make myself a priority. And I continue to not take care of myself.

It’s a mental game I struggle with.

I try to chase that “life balance” but I am a workaholic and I love it. It is hard for me to slow down and take the time to do what I need to do for myself.

But it needs to stop because I hate myself for it. I despise myself. And I am so mad at myself.

I need to start loving myself and giving a shit about ME!

This is definitely one of, if not the biggest flaw I have. I am going to start working on doing better starting with making promises to myself and following through.

There is nothing worse than saying you are going to do something (for yourself) and then not doing it. We all know what that feels like when someone else does it to us…..why should we do it to ourselves. Over and over again.

I am going to eat healthy starting today (and then you don’t do it).

I am going to work out 4 days a week (and then you don’t do it).

I am going to go to bed at a decent time and get a good sleep (and then you don’t do it).

We keep letting ourselves down and that has to stop.

Of course we have to give ourselves some grace. Life can be crazy. But when it keeps happening and the self talk just keeps getting worse and worse you have to draw the line. It’s not good for you.

Sorry about the rant….I hope someone was able to relate to this and perhaps be inspired to take the step to start loving themselves more. And if you are already awesome at this I would love to know what your strategies are to make time for yourself and make yourself a top priority. Because we are all busy and we all have the same 24 hours in a day and I know it can be done!

Cheers,

Kimberley

We Snuck Away

We snuck away for a few days to ponder our life changing decision.

Sometimes you just need to get in your vehicle and get away. To open your mind and hopefully find a little bit of clarity.

There was a lot of “trust your gut” happening.

But we have it figured out and we are all in. And excited.

I am going to have to keep you hanging just a little bit longer on the details but for sure we will be relocating so Dusty Road will have a new home come summer.

Thankfully with an online presence nothing will really change…..we don’t plan on missing a beat!

Thanks a million to those who have been supporting us during this time of change for us, it means everything to us!

Hardest Decision We Have Ever Had to Make

I can’t divulge too much yet but we are facing the biggest “fork in the road” that we have ever experienced in our entire life.

Two huge opportunities at the end of each.

One BIG decision to make.

And it is so freaking hard.

467348cdef0902194e4d688c92db473e.jpg

I would love to offer some noble advice on how to make huge life changing decisions but I. Have. No. Idea.

Basically we have to choose between two jobs. Two locations.

Both very positive. Both very exciting. Both very big changes for us.

And we need to make this decision in the next 36 hours.

One thing is for sure….whichever we choose we will be all in, there will be challenges, but it will be amazing!

Stay tuned……

 

I Made A Mistake

Today I have proven I am not responsible enough to make even mildly important decisions.

I let my child be on my Facebook live show.

What the “BLEEP” was I thinking?

. . .

Today was actually a moderately eventful day…..in my low low standards kind of way!

The highlight (excuse the super creepy snapchat filtered selfie)…..

I finally got my glasses fixed. And surprise surprise, I can see better. Who knew when your glasses are bent and crooked it would inhibit your vision……ya I’m probably the only dumb one that didn’t realize that!

My eyes got worse too which means time for some new glasses.

Tried a few on…..

Seriously, trying glasses on is NOT my favourite thing to do! You will have to wait and see if I picked any of these, but man oh man glasses aren’t cheap……especially when you have “coke bottle” lenses!

After some errands and a lunch date we were back home to take Liam to ball practice.

Storm clouds rolled in while we were there……always love the view of our grain elevator with storm clouds!

And then a few short hours later the damage…..

The results of my very poor decision to allow my son to join our weekly Facebook Live broadcast.

I was playing with fire and I didn’t even know it……man I am glad he only mildly embarrassed me!

If you dare watch it check out my Facebook page here.

Lesson learned. The hard way.

I hope you had a fabulous Tuesday!

Cheers,

Kimberley
