Friend-Makin' Mondays

I like Friend-Makin' Mondays! And I'm waiting for the cable guy today. I kind of need him to come soon because I gotta get to work. But for now, I'll do this!!! If you want to join in, just click here.

What are your hobbies? What do you wish that you knew how to do?

My hobbies are:

1) Traveling

This is with my brother and sister in South Korea.

This is my whole family in Cambodia.

2) I love playing board games with my husband. Scrabble!! He hates it though because he says that I always win.

3) Reading

4) Volunteering. I love to volunteer at the Animal Shelter and the Jewish Home and Hospital in Manhattan, as well as at church.

5) Finding random landmarks or oddities.

A fork in the road!! That's in upstate New York.

So is this...

6) Baking! I'm WAY better at baking then I am at cooking. :)

I used to have WAY more hobbies. I feel like I need to pick a few of them back up. I used to knit and scrapbook and write. And I've pretty much stopped all of those.

If I could learn something new...hmm...I would love to learn sign language. I don't know if you can count that, but I'd love to learn a new language. I would also like to learn how to sew. My knitting skills were HORRIBLE. I'd like to learn how to actually make things.

What about you? What are your hobbies?


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoy baking way better than cooking, too! Your sweet treats look delicious!!

  2. Great list!!! Love the fork:)

  3. That fork is hilarious - what an odd thing to spot! I'm with you being better at baking than cooking. I enjoy doing both, but I'm a way better baker than I am a cook! :)

  4. I enjoy baking more than cooking too..hehe

    What kind of church do you attend? To be honest, I don't really know many people who go to church here, and I haven't done it much myself. But I do think I'll look for a church home at some point.

    You said on my blog that you work in TS...I don't love hanging out there, but it does make me happy to go there -- usually around midnight when it's quiet. It reminds me of everything I wanted before I moved here and makes me so grateful.

    I work in Midtown, but even closer to GSC.

  5. What a great list! Wish I had time/money to travel! I am your newest follower! COme by and say hi!

  6. I cracked up at the fork in the road and the prozac pill!! You have some great hobbies and as far as writing...I'm reading you now and totally enjoying the moment!

  7. Your baking looks amazing!!! So yummy awesome Hobby list!!

  8. i love to bake as well, although it stresses me out a little. i worry so much about it coming out well that it takes the joy away a little for me.

  9. Ok, you come bake for me i'll cook for you. i can cook way better than baking

  11. The picture of the fork in the road made me laugh when I got it! Thats so funny, great picture!
