Commenting Challenge, Day 4!


Continuing on with Jenna’s Commenting Challenge today. Today’s topic is hobbies…

Well, let’s see… I would say my hobbies include cleaning house, picking up after my two-year-old son and 31-year-old husband, cooking, doing laundry, running errands… oh, wait…

I enjoy blogging and reading blogs, obviously. I love spending time with my family – my parents, brother and sister-in-law, mother-in-law, extended families, etc. I enjoy playing games… usually once or twice a week you can find Stephen and me playing card games with  my parents. We enjoy Hand & Foot and Spades.

Stephen and I both like to watch tv… although Stephen more than me. I’m a fan of crime shows like CSI and Law & Order… Stephen really isn’t. We both like to watch Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, and The Biggest Loser. Those are “our shows” during the fall/spring. We also like a few food network shows like Chopped, Restaurant Impossible, Next Food Network Star. During the summer we LOVE Big Brother.

I like to read, although I don’t read now nearly as much as I used to. My most recent read was the Shades of Grey series. To say I loved it would be an understatement. I know it’s cliché, but I also love love love the Harry Potter and Twilight series. I’m a romance novel girl… hand me a romantic fiction book and I’m all over it. I also enjoy most John Grisham books. I’m sure there are other more recent authors I would love but after I had Christopher and especially after I went back to college, I rarely read for pleasure. Maybe that will change now that I have my degree? Hopefully.

I love listening to music. Most days I would choose listening to Pandora over watching television. (Pandora’s Today’s Adult’s Top Hits Radio is what you can always find me listening to if I’m on Pandora.)  Right now I’m obsessed – OBSESSED with Adele. I could listen to the entire 21 album over.and.over.  Seriously.

I love to travel and vacation. My parents were always really good about taking us on fun family vacations when my brother and I were growing up, and now Stephen and I try to be like that. It’s hard sometimes because we are short on money right now, but we try to save up for small vacations – like Branson – at least once a year. Stephen and I just went on a cruise last month. Half of it was a Christmas gift from my parents, and the other half was my graduation gift from myself. (Or Stephen, seeing as how I haven’t really brought any money in over the past two years. Ha!) We LOVE cruises.  I also love snow-skiing… I’ve been several times with my family, but Stephen has never been, and I haven’t been since 2005. So our next big vacation will be snow-skiing, I think. 

I like to bake and throw parties and pretend like I’m a photographer and take walks and I love to jog – although you wouldn’t be able to tell that by looking at me! Ha! {Anybody else out there doing C25K?}

That’s all I can really think of right now. I’m hoping to find a few bloggers with hobbies and interests like mine!


  1. Since big brother hasn't been on in a while have you started watching the new show similar to it called the glass house?

  2. Visiting from Jenna's Journey! We love to watch those Food Network shows too! And LOVE Big Brother. Can't wait for it to start again!

  3. Stopping by from Jenna's. thanks for visiting my blog. Your little boy is SO cute!

  4. Your shows are very similar to mine! I'm watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory right now! And I'm obsessed with Adele, too! Love her! We are going on our first cruise in January! So excited!

  5. I LOVE cruises! I grew up with at least a couple trips a year (some big, some small) so someday we will raise our kids like that. Even if it was just an overnight trip to a nearby town to do something interesting, I remember those fun family times!


I always love to hear from my readers! Feel free to leave a comment!
