Curious about CBD? My personal story…

6 05 2019

On Super Bowl Sunday in February of 2017, I fell backwards down our basement steps. I was trying to carry a piece of wicker furniture upstairs to organize my closet (Crazy! I know!) and the drawers started to come out and threw me off balance. As I lay waiting for help at the bottom of the steps, I knew there would be a long road to recovery, but had no idea just how long that road would be.

I had broken my heel, and deeply injured my back in the fall, and was in a cast and a wheelchair/crutches combo to move around. It was so very painful. Two weeks later, getting out of our vehicle in the rain, my crutches slipped out from under me and I fell flat on my back on the rough ground…so just 2 weeks after my first fall, the second time I broke my back.

To make a long story short, I spent almost 4 months in a wheelchair, then used a walker, and finally graduated to a cane. I am so thankful for a great family and friends that cared for me, a fabulous team here at Adrians that carried on without even a hiccup while I was gone and that I am able to walk today! However, I have had lingering side effects from the fall. I struggle with my back, especially when lying down and getting to sleep.

Fast forward to March of 2019. I had heard of CBD of course, but still thought of it in the same category as marijuana, which I wanted no part of. It wasn’t until I started reading, listening and talking to people that were using CBD that I decided to give it a try.

I wish I could say that taking CBD has completely healed my back, but it hasn’t. However, I have had a remarkable change in the pain level, and the most noticeable change has been that I am sleeping like a baby! Night after night. Amazing! I use the oil under my tongue each night about 20 minutes before going to bed. I also use the Triple Strength Cream, and have even tried the Sleepy Z’s which are a blend of CBD and Melatonin.

On Sunday, May 5, 2019, CBS Sunday Morning ran an interesting segment on the incredible Boom in CBD Products, and they interviewed the Founder of Green Roads, one of the CBD Vendors that we carry as an expert in this fast growing business. There are many CBD vendors out there and we wanted the best of the best! So glad CBS validated this!

If you are interested in giving CBD a try, we have several options for you. We have also spent time searching for the highest rated, industry leading companies to source our products from. (Green Roads won the award for BEST CBD PRODUCT 2018). As we learn more, we will share with you.

I am not an expert, but if you have questions, I will do my best to find answers for you. We’ll learn together. I have been watching videos, reading about CBD and listening to experts share their knowledge. Some of the main reasons people try CBD is to reduce inflammation, calm anxiety, muscle aches and pains, arthritis, ADD, ADHD, and more.

Thank you for taking time to read this post. If you’re curious, have questions, or just want to chat, drop by Adrian’s, or send an email. I will do my best to help you find answers.

Adrian’s MAY VIP BOX Revealed!

26 04 2019

We are SUPER EXCITED to unveil our MAY VIP BOX for 2019! With it’s “Diva for the Day” theme, it will be a perfect treat for yourself, or to give as birthday or Mother’s Day gifts for your mom, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends or for those “other mother’s” who have been such an influence in our lives.

2019 MAY VIP Postcard

Ready to take a peek inside? We’ve got this month’s UN-BOXING VIDEO ready to go!

As we’re sourcing the gift items that will go into every box, we are always thinking about the person who will be opening the BOX. Our goal is that it always makes them feel like a VIP! Who would you like to make feel like a Very Important Person? The “Diva for a Day” Box will do just that!

Here’s the whole kit & caboodle…

TAILWIND 1080 x 1080-51

From the Leopard tissue paper to the “Diamond” pen and everything in-between, each and every item has been hand picked to delight the recipient! Here’s the story behind each item…

TAILWIND 1080 x 1080-47

We thought the “Daily Grind” Cranberry Cosmo scented Bath Salts were a great choice! Not only does it have a delightful fragrance, the company that makes this is “The Royal Standard” a perfect fit for our Diva Box theme!

Next we have a clear cosmetic pouch that is trimmed in black and features metallic gold polk-a-dots as the design.  This bag is just the right size to help you organize your purse or travel bag.

Our purse mirror comes from a Kansas City vendor who also makes the very popular Willow Tree angels. We love being able to keep it local when it comes to sourcing great products, and think you will love the fun designs of this great quality mirror.

Another DECADENT item for our “Diva Box” is from The Resident Chef in Arkansas… Here’s what they have to say about the Turtle Cheesecake…”Our most popular dessert mix!! The Resident Chef knows you will love this easy to prepare dessert which is chock full of caramels, pecan pieces, and chocolate chips. We love to keep it on hand in case last minute guests drop in. Everything you need to impress your guests or just enough to satisfy your Turtle Cheesecake cravings! With the addition of whipped topping this mix makes an awesome pie mix or great dessert spread for brownies and cakes! The possibilities are endless.” Yummy!

TAILWIND 1080 x 1080-49

Our next group of gift items from the Diva for a Day VIP BOX actually set the theme for the whole box.  Our “Diva” scented Candle and Glamorous Laundry Wash were the first items we chose.  The “Diva” fragrance has been Tyler’s #1 selling fragrance for YEARS, and one sniff will tell you why! Not too perfumey, not too heavy, not too sweet, it is a perfect blend for Diva’s all over the country!

The “Diamond” Pen is the #1 selling item from one of our awesome vendors from Chicago. It certainly makes a statement when you take it out of your purse to write a note or your next $1,000,000 check!

We always like to include a little snack for that instant gratification moment when you open your box, and Sheila G’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brittle takes care of that sweet craving right away! Crunchy, sweet, rich and salty all at the same time. Yum! Perfect sprinkled over vanilla ice cream. (Don’t ask me how I know this!)

TAILWIND 1080 x 1080-48

We’ve saved some of the BEST for last… Our last group of items in this box are some of my favorites! The super-glittery and glamorous nail polish will be perfect on my toes for summer, and the leopard ID and credit card case would look pretty snazzy when I pull it out to pay the bill at dinner!

Our sweet friends from Texas custom designed a label to exactly match our VIP BOX and the package holds a sweet lemonade/tea mixture they call “La Tea Dah”. Delicious!

Lastly, my personal favorite!

“Write in on your heart that EVERY DAY will be the BEST day in the year.”

I love this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson and it is beautifully written on this awesome frame. This piece can either sit on your desk or can be hung on the wall.

TAILWIND 1080 x 1080-51

Kansas Culture – MCC SALE – 2019

15 04 2019

April, 2019

Time flies so quickly! Our kids and grandbabies were all just home for the MCC Auction (Mennonite Central Committee) where they auction off beautiful handmade quilts, pies, furniture, and have the “Feeding of the Multitude” where we all over-indulge on traditional Mennonite foods such as Verenike, Zwiebach, Cherry Moos, New Years Cookies, Borscht, Homemade Sausage and of course, more Pie! For me, the MCC event is one of the best parts of the Spring Season in Kansas!

IMG_8909

If you’ve never been, and you live in Kansas, it would be a great event to put on your “to experience” next spring! The event opens on Friday late afternoon and goes through Saturday.  By the way, they don’t call it “Feeding the Multitude” for nothing! Here is the LINE of people waiting to eat…

We have a lot of shoppers stop by Adrians Boutique on their way to or from the Auction at the Fairgrounds in Hutchinson. We look forward to seeing YOU next year!
