*************************************************


We all have a bucket list right?.  I do -  you can read mine here
I love lists - PERIOD, so to be able to cross things off gives me such a high.  

My friend & sponsor Jen has a blog all about her bucket list!.  Cool huh?

I have Jen from A Drop in the Bucket here today to tell us a bit more about herself AND a super cool giveaway!

**************************

Wow!  I am so excited to be here guest posting here at Nicole's online home.  Now if I could just find my way to Australia to meet her in person.  {wink}   She is such an inspiring woman and lovely mama.

Miss Mommy is one of my daily reads, because of how honest and forthcoming Nicole is about the realities of life.  And she is rockin' the blog world right now too!  Maybe someday my blog can grow up to be just like hers.

So I guess you might be wondering who I am, huh?

I am J#2 {or Jen} the proud stay-at-home-mom of a two-year-old {J#3} and nine-month-old {J#4}.  We are from the U.S. {Minnesota to be exact}, but are now living in Scotland, after having taking a year long detour in the Netherlands.

Who's J#1?  That'd be my handsome husband, seen here with the littles.

I tell my story over at A Drop in the Bucket.  You know how sometimes you start something, and you don't expect it to get quite as involved as you intended it to be?

I started my blog as a place to publish my bucket list, and then tell the tales of how I actually get to check the items off.  Things like taking part in an organized sporting event {I just ran a 5K on Thursday!}, write a book {done through National Novel Writing Month} and learn how to take better photos.

But now?  It's become so much more.

To me, its now become a place that I challenge myself {and hopefully readers} to live life in the moment. To intend to live a joyful, positive, simple life so that we can be present for our husbands, children, family and friends.  To work on becoming the best mama that we can be.



Plus, I write about random every day things, like choosing a new hairstyle, shoes and jewelry, and being healthy {or at least trying to be}.

Come by for a visit, won't you?

And because actually typing my bucket list and making it public for the world to see has inspired me to do more in the past year to change than I had in a long time, I have the perfect give-away.  Once I do a few more of the things on my bucket list {like learn how to sew} I think the next item to add to my bucket list will be to open a shop on Etsy.

I am amazed at the creative and talented Etsy artists every time I visit {which is pretty much every day}, and I bet you are too, right?
So...here is your chance to win a $25 gift card for Etsy!  Yes ma'am {or sir}, and all you have to do is:
