Join me- "BuZz" & Gratitude {Day 1}

  Good Day everyone!  Today I'm KiCKiNg off 2 exciting things & I'm hoping that you will want to play along. 
The first thing is
The "BuZz" about The Hive 
& WiN giveaway!!  
You may know that I'm hosting The Hive {Holiday style} in a week {it's a SweeT little Boutique} that I do a few times a year where I not only sell H&H creations but I invite a few talented & creative friends to come sell their goods too. 
{I'll be back later to introduce them to you} 

I want to give you a chance to WiN a $25.00 gift certificate to spend at The {Holiday} Hive Who doesn't like some free $$$, right?!? It's super easy to enter this GiVEAWAY  & there are lots of ways to enter just do one 
{or better yet- all of the following} 
for more chances to WiN:

1- become a {NeW} follower to my blog 
{**be sure to leave a comment telling me so} 
2- email your friends, Facebook about it, share The Hive button on your blogs & tell me so 
3- RSVP to The Hive on FaceBook-
{just click on the word Facebook to be linked to the page} 
4- leave a comment & share your blog with me so I can check it out {I like having new places to go} 
5- BONUS {this post only since they kind of go together} Leave me a comment telling me what you are grateful for TODAY!

It's that simple.  You have until next Tuesday night at Midnight to enter. I'll draw out the LuCKY winner on Wends. November 9th so be sure to check back. 
Good Luck! 

The next exciting thing is :
I'm starting my 30 days of developing an
Attitude of Gratitude 

Each day I'm going to share 3 things that I'm grateful for. I would love for you to follow along & share any thoughts or things you are grateful for with me during the next 30 days.  Gratitude is something that I feel very passionate about & something that has shaped my life in many different ways.  I enjoy having a feeling of gratitude in my life because I KNOW it affects me everyday.
 I heard a lesson years ago where the teacher said we need to learn to develop an Attitude of Gratitude in our daily lives & that has always stuck with me.  I've had several Gratitude journals where I've recorded {for a period of time} 3-5 things daily that I was grateful for- sometimes it was little everyday things like.. Laughter, Oreo cookies, a phone call from a friend, sounds
{these are just a few examples from a past journal of mine} 
I enjoy getting the chance to look back on those journals to 
read, reflect & remember those things. 

So get out a piece of paper, a fresh new notebook or your blog or FB page & write down at least 1 thing that you are grateful for each day & see if it doesn't change your outlook or life in the next 30 days or even just that one day- 
I'm pretty sure it will
So here I go, let the journey begin. 

Day {1
-A new Day {I love turning over the calendar to a new month & fresh start} 
- Our Home {since it is snowing outside I'm grateful for shelter from the cold} 
-Last Night {walking around my neighborhood with my family, seeing friends, neighbors & enjoying the wonderful Fall weather.Thank you Mother Nature for holding off the rain & snow for a couple of hours} 

-My RoCK STaR, Mad Hatter & MuMMy thank you too!-

I hope to hear from you all sometime during the next 30 days. I would love to be inspired by you & your comments & see what you are grateful for each & everyday. 
Enjoy the process of developing your Attitude!

Cute, cute costumes! My blog is "Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson". You are too young to remeber, but there was a sweet Swedish lady named Mrs. Olson that use to do 'Folgers' commercials. Even though I don't drink coffee, I loved Mrs. Olson. She is the inspiration for my blog title.

Jann Olson said...

Thanks for giving us the chance to win. Today I am meeting (for the first time) one of my fellow UT blogging friends. We have only been friends for a short while. So today, I am thankful for my blog and the opportunity to make new friends!

Jann Olson said...
