I was without internet and tv over night, (and our 3g out here blows)

So I had to occupy myself elsewhere, as apparently I am way more reliant on tv/internet than I thought I was.

So, this brought a GTNY question in mind..... What are your hobbies? I think we've touched on it before, but it's always fun to see what other ladies do for fun.


I am a crafty crafter, I will try anything once. I knit, crochet, and find random things on pinterest I think I can accomplish. I love creating new things!

I love to coupon (that counts as a hobby right?) if we leave a store without saving at least 50%, I feel like I failed.

I also love to read, when I ever have 5 minutes to myself!

I love to walk, read ( not gonna lie, I love a good romance novel!) Bake, and right now, I am researching things to sew for baby ( bibs, wipes, car seat covers etc...)

Going to pick up knitting soon, tried crochet and couldn't get past the simple steps and youtube vids weren't helping. Hopefully knitting goes better.

I like to read, I love Nora Roberts...

Bonfires, being outside, camping but that's not an every day thing. My new one this year will be major gardening for us to live off it until next season, so I'll be learning canning etc...

I like to read sci-fi and fantasy novels. I'm a huge nerd, I like comic books, card games like Magic: The Gathering, I used to play Dungeons and Dragons tabletop RPG a lot but since we moved out in the middle of nowhere we have no one to play with lol.

I was a dancer for most of my life in competitions, all styles of dance. I like to draw, I have a TON of tattoos I have my whole side tattoed from my shoulder blade down to my knee. I draw tattoo flash sometimes and my half sleeve is my original artwork to the last line.

I will read all day long. I love reading. I love singing and listening to music.

I used to write years ago, I haven't had any motivation to do so in forever though.

If the weather is nice and there's nothing to do in the house, I will go out to a mall or something and window shop/try on clothes.

I'm a super crafty crafter too, I like to sew, did roman blinds in the kitchen this year. I'm pretty handy, last year I built a fence in the back yard. Plan now is I want to sew the babies bedding and curtains. I'm debating whether its too ambitious to try to install a chair rail and shadow box trim in the nursery while I'm still just contending with a tiny bump. Oh I'm also a reader, nothing substantial really usually just fluff

I like to be creative. I crochet, draw, paint, etc. I've even done some tattooing (though it's been a while). When I have some time to, I enjoy reading a good book.

My husband absolutely ADORES The Dresden Files. He keeps begging me to read them swearing up and down I will love them. I might have to now lol.

I love Ender's Game, the Dragonlance series, Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin of course... husband reads a lot more than me!

I love reading. DH got me Takedown Twenty for Christmas (by Janet Evanovich) and I've read most of those in the series. The early ones are hard to find. I read the Sookie Stackhouse books except the last ones. Books in a series are my favorites. I like to "know" the characters but enjoy the single Nora Roberts, also.

I cross stitch and scrapbook, too. Scrapbooking can take up so much room! I started a cross stitch piece for baby but have been online too much, to do much of it!

I love to read true crime. I know I'm one of kind but it intrigues me. I also love pictures but I'm not huge into that. Other than that I'm not very crafty at all.

I love to read but haven't really had the time. Lately I've been repainting my house, crocheting baby blankets (I know 3 others having babies beside me) and planning upcoming dog shows.

Let's see. Reading (working on the Divergent series right now), watching tv (is it strange I count that as a hobby?), cross-stitch, and I really, really really want to learn how to sew. I've got the machine and everything...just need to learn.
