A Kick in the Butt and Quick Update

Life has been a crazy whirlwind and I really can’t complain……although it has been a tad hard on the nerves!

I left off with our house hunting adventures and where we are going and I have barely been able to keep my s#!t together to get the essentials done this past week…..it has been ridiculous.

Thank goodness for my awesome husband who has been helping me way more than he should have to or I would be so far behind in mailing packages and getting my work done!

He leaves for his new job very soon so I need to get my act together pronto!

On the bright side we found a house. Super excited about that. I will have to wait until its official official before I make any announcements as to exactly where we and The Dusty Road Boutique will be located.

In other excitement my family also has been getting ready for a wedding. When your busy you might as well be insanely busy! My brother is getting married this weekend and today we spent some time helping get ready for it!

The light was amazing at the ceremony location…..that’s my old photographer coming out in me! The weather was also beautiful. The mosquitos were savages!

In all of this craziness and hustle and bustle I am definitely learning a lot about myself! Firstly, that it is okay to lean on others for help and support. There are times you really need them. I have never been one to seek out help but I am learning.

When I am in a rut and a little down on myself I look to youtube for some inspiration and a kick in the butt. I always seem to find just the right video and just the right time to open my eyes.

This time it was Mel Robbins speech “The Secret to Self-Motivation” and the thing that hit me was “you are never going to feel like it”. Those things you need to do to get closer to your goals. Those things you know you should be doing. If you wait until you “feel like doing them” it will never happen. You just have to do them, regardless of what you feel like at that moment.

Obviously she explains it better so watch the video. Absorb it and live it! It is life changing advice and exactly what I needed right now as I struggle to figure out how to adjust to my new reality and overcome a big emotional rut!

I knew better but I didn’t “feel like it” and I was starting to sabotage a lot of what I had been working so hard for!

Of course nothing is a quick fix but I feel like I am back on the right track.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Cheers,

Kimberley

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 Groundbreaking Discovery

I’ve made a massive discovery.

It’s revolutionary really.

I have discovered…….

(cue the drum roll)

The current state of our desktop is a direct reflection of our life.

Well it certainly applies to me anyway, haha. Yup. My life is crazy, full, completely disorganized chaos!

Things are overlapping each other and there is hardly room for anything else.

Thankfully it only took a couple of minutes to organize and tidy up my desktop. Of course it may take a bit longer to “straighten up” my actual life but in all honesty if I take a second to sit back and look at the big picture it’s not as complicated as it feels, it just needs a little sorting out. And there is a lot, I mean a lot, to be thankful for!

On another note……

it’s okay to have waffles for supper right?

It seems to be an on going argument in our household and I am being outvoted 2-1.

But as long as I am the “cook” I get the last word and it was waffles for supper tonight, ha!

I hope your day is amazing and don’t forget, “you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

Cheers,

Kimberley
