Sorry I haven't posted for a bit. We were at my in-laws for the weekend for some crazy cousin/grandparent time so I took a break while we were there to get some reading and relaxing done.
Today's Toddle Along Topic is hobbies!
I'd like to think I have some hobbies or things that I wish I could spend more time on!
I consider crafting in general a hobby. This includes sewing, scrapbooking, card making, quilting, DIY, cake decorating, etc. I love creating things. I don't think I'm creative enough to come up with my own ideas for things, I either use patterns (specifically for sewing/quilting) or use other examples and try to "make it my own".
Another big hobby of mine is reading. I love reading. I've loved reading since I was a little kid. I can easily get caught up and lost in a book and read it within a day or two. Part of it is enjoyment, but part of it is also the stimulation my brain gets from it. I love figuring out new words to add to my vocabulary that I find in books. I mostly read fiction because I like how it takes me away from my current world for a bit (the chaos of 2u2 specifically!)
My favourite hobby is definitely my participation in sports. I love being active. However, being pregnant twice has taken the ability to participate away. I understand, you can still exercise when you're pregnant, but that's not what I like the most. I've been playing t-ball/softball since I was 5 (so for 25 years) and love playing, both of which you aren't allowed to do when you're pregnant (not by my choice though). I'm hoping to get into running soon too.
So what are you hobbies? What do you like about them? Or maybe you don't have any hobbies and are looking for some ideas! Head over to Growing Up Geeky to check out some other lovely mommy hobbies.
