Do you have any other hobbies?

I love to cross-stitch, but I haven't in years. I still have all of the stuff and maybe one day I will find a way to fit it in again too.

I also love to read. I read something every day. I also enjoy playing video games sometimes too. That's about it.

I love to read and take pictures. I used to write a lot but I havent done that in a very long time.

Is watching TV a hobby cause I do that a lot when Keira is up late.. lol

I can cross stitch too...haven't done it in years. I can crochet, but I usually only do that if I need to make a blanket for someone as a gift. Non-crafty hobby is singing.

Um, sleeping. Can that count?

I like to knit baby hats, but I can't stand just sitting still. I like to take pictures of the kids.

and just generally any crafty things!

Sewing, I am thinking about getting a serger because I want to start making boutique style kids clothes. I am also trying to learn how to make hair bows.

I know how to cross-stitch, but haven't in years so I don't really count that.

I also like to read and play World of Warcraft.

Haha, I absolutely should count TV as a hobby. We haven't had time lately to watch as much though and our DVR is so full. My favorites were my soaps though and two of them were canceled Sad ( one life to live and all my children) so I haven't got as much to watch by myself anymore. I enjoyed watching those in the evenings while I scrapped.

Boy, Crochet is something I wish I enjoyed. I love the look of it ( and knitting) but I just can't make myself do it. I tried to learn to crochet a few years back and the whole time I was doing it I was thinking about all the other things I could be doing lol.

So many of us cross stitch, we should share some of our work. I haven't done it in a year or so, but I really do enjoy it. I can't wait to have more time to do it again. I haven't really done much since Jamie was born.

Oh I love the look of monogrammed stuff too. I also love your sock monkey's. Are you still making those?

Yep, sleep is an extra curricular activity around here. Has to count!

What kinds of books do you like to read? I have a kindle and read every day. I like a pretty big variety I think. A little in most genres.

I am reading a short story book in the Pretty Little Liars series right now. I really like that series.

I just got a Kindle Touch in December. I spent quite a few days constantly reading afterwards, but I kind of put it down for a bit to try to get some organizing around my house done because I kept spending all day reading and needed to not get involved in another book. I think I am going to start a new one now that I have got a big of organizing done.

I think we are friends on GoodReads. I'm not too picky about the books I read. I enjoy Nicholas Sparks, Twilight, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, now I'm really getting into the young adult sci-fi type books. Those are the ones I keep reading and not being able to put down so I read them in 1-2 days.

I read the first 2 in the Pretty Little Liars series, but I was way involved in the TV show first, and the differences bother me a bit.

they bother me a lot so I stopped watching the show. I had already read all the books ( that were out) when the show started and I couldn't handle how wrong the show was lol. I love the books though.
