House Shopping Day One

One thing harder then choosing what town to live in is choosing a house to live in.

We hit the road bright and early for the 5 hour drive to our soon to be new home town to begin yet another adventure……trying to find a house!

As exciting as that may sound it is proving to be a challenge!

How much do we spend? How big do we need? Where should it be located? In town or acreage? Big yard or little yard? Project or finished? Old or new?

Ahhhh.

We looked at 5 houses today and have 4 more tomorrow and we seriously have no idea what to do!

This could take awhile.

In the meantime we enjoyed some delicious local grub……

I hope you have an amazing long weekend full of family, friends and sunshine!!

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,

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.

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!

Now I Am A Baseball Mom

It’s 11:47pm. I’m tired. I’m feeling under the weather. And I am paying for being a chronic procastinator.

When will I ever learn my lesson. Argh.

2c662ef5d0b51fc0d0c96d91ca4cfd0f.jpg

My to-do list was a little longer than the hours in the day and before I knew it 10:00pm rolled around and I still had pictures to edit and clothes to upload to the website for tomorrows new releases.

It’s all done and ready to go though! Can’t wait for you to seen the new styles this week!

It was a great day actually. We had some really nice rain showers move through and leave us some much needed moisture. I unpacked and restocked all of the clothes from the trade show. I even helped my hubby do some chores…..having him around all of the time sure is handy when it comes to chores! I used to have to do all of the morning chores by myself as he used to leave really early for work.

The highlight of the day was Liam’s first ball game of the year. So proud of him! This is his first time playing in a couple of years and also the first time playing in this age division. Tonight he hit a single and played second base. It was great to just unwind and enjoy watching the game!

And I love their little uniforms!! Growing up I played ball through almost every age group and we NEVER had real uniforms so a part of me is kind of jealous, haha.

But very thankful he gets the opportunity to experience it all!

I hope everyones Monday was amazing and not too “Monday-ish”!

Cheers,

Kimberley
