My good friend, Jessi, over at Novel Heartbeat has just started this awesome new feature as a way for her followers to get to know her better! Check out the list of upcoming topics here.
Today's topic is non-bookish hobbies. You know, the things that we do when we're NOT reading? I have a few...
- Spending time with friends and family. Most of my close friends live out of town, but when we're together we have an absolute blast. As a new mom, most of my free time is spent playing with my little boy and, when my husband's home from work, we try to spend as much family time as possible. He's currently on winter vacation (he's a high school teacher) and it's going to be SO strange not having him around next week!
- Scrapbooking. I have made three albums so far, one of our wedding, one of our honeymoon and one of our eight years together. Next project will be Marko's life thus far!
- Yoga. My sister-in-law got me started on hot yoga a couple of years ago, which I was enjoying until I got pregnant. Then, I did prenatal yoga and "mommy and baby" yoga. Once Marko was too mobile for yoga (I'd spend most of the class chasing him around the room), I signed up for power flow yoga, which gave me one evening of "me time" while my hubby stayed home with Marko. I LOVE this yoga class, and my instructor is amazing!
- Watching TV. I'm not a couch potato by any means (honestly, having an almost-eleven month old is a guarantee that I don't sit still much at ALL!) but my hubby and I do enjoy watching the odd television show. We got started on Breaking Bad over the holidays, and have watched one episode every evening for the past two weeks -- holy crap, this show is amazing!!!!
Sooo, that's my non-bookish hobbies! What kind of hobbies do YOU have? Leave me a comment below!
