Guest Post: Brooke from Covered in Grace!

by Megan

Hey Shaper Uppers! Did you know that’s what you are called now? Hope you like it.
Today we have a special treat! Brooke from Covered in Grace is visiting to talk about her very own 30 Before 30 list! Take it away!

Covered in Grace

Hello new friends! I am so happy to be here with Megan today. I have been loving her blog and everything that I’ve been seeing at Shaping Up to be a Mom. My name is Brooke, and I blog over at Covered in Grace. There, I write about life as a mother, student, military wife, photog wannabe, writer and Jesus lover. Be sure to check out some of my features: Monday Meet Ups, Love on a Tuesday, and my Graduation Celebration Giveaway that is going on NOW.

Another one of my features, and also something that Megan and I share in common, is a 30 before 30 list. Megan is talking about her list over at my blog right now!
I began my list a while ago as a sort of fun thing to do. I figured I would get a few good blog posts out of it, and that the things I filled it with were do-able. We’ll see right?! Ha!

So far, I’ve put a small dent in my list. But August is just around the corner. Now I’m feeling the crunch to finish!

One that I am really trying hard to complete is:

The list is long, and I filled it with some long texts…but I’m giving a go!
I may have to tweak the list a bit. Ha!!

I haven’t completed many on my list yet, but the first I did get to cross off was:
13. Stay up to see a Hawaiian Sunrise.  Done!  20 Nov 2011

This photo was taken on Bellows Beach on Oahu. It is my absolute favorite place in all of Hawaii. I will definitely miss it when we move.

Another item on the list that is a work in progress is:

17. Fill a sangria jug with change.

I’ve started it… It’s coming along…ish.

Ok…so I have a few that are “in progress.” I’m also working on:
20. write the book.

Writing is such a passion of mine, and definitely something that I feel like I’ve been called to do.
“The Book” is a memoir that focuses on my experiences during my first pregnancy as a teen mom.
If you’re interested in reading a couple of chapters, click HERE. Or follow the button link below.
*note- my excerpts are hosted at a branch off blog that I created for Covered in Grace. It is called Barefoot Passion.*

And finally… the second item I am able to cross off my list!!!!
I am sooo excited about this one!!

22. Graduate!

It has been a long time coming, 12 years to be exact, but I’ve finally done it!
I walked across the stage to receive my BA in English just this past Saturday, May 12th!
I haven’t blogged about it much yet, but you can view a few pics here, or enter my Graduation Celebration Giveaway HERE! Today is the last day to enter!

As for the rest… well… I’m working on it. Now that school is OVER I plan to really tackle my list! Stay tuned for more! And thank you so much for reading today!
A special thanks to Megan for having me! It has been my pleasure.
I would love it if you’d stop by and visit me from time to time!
