Get to Know Me Monday: A is for Activities

I am officially the worst blogger in the world.  I'm pretty sure it's written in a book somewhere and I should be receiving my award in the mail any day now.  I have no idea why it's so difficult for me to sit down and write about my life!

Oh, wait.  It could have a little something to do with chasing a 21 month old around all day and growing a new human at the same time.  

Somehow, other women make it just look plain easy.  To me, it's sometimes like pulling teeth and I don't want it to be like that.  So, I've concocted a new plan.  I want to be intentional about documenting our lives right now, so we can remember all the fun, mundane things we do.  I'm going to attempt 3 blog posts a week (gasp!) but they will be the same posts each week.

Mondays are for getting to know me.  I feel like that might be a good place to start.  I've "started over" twenty-thousand times (I counted.) and think it might be nice to start at the beginning.  So I'm going to run through the alphabet--one letter a week-- so you can, well, get to know me.

So, without further ado, today's blog is brought to you by the letter "A": "A" is for Activities

I don't have much time these days to really delve into the things I like to do, but I do try to get back to them occasionally.

I like to monogram.  Before I even had a girl, I wanted a monogram machine.  I have a Brother PE-770 and I love it!  Hadley has lots of monogrammed clothes that wouldn't really be an option if I didn't have my own machine, because let's face it, I'm not forking out money every time I want her initials on a piece of clothing.

I like to sew. I'm still very new to sewing, but I have my grandmother's old Bernina sewing machine that I love working with.  I made Hadley's baby blanket, a couple of bags, and her christmas stocking.  (which reminds me...I should probably start working on a stocking for Griffin...)  I'd like to try my hand at some outfits soon.

I like to read. Reading has really taken a back seat since Hadley was born.  I love traveling through the pages of a book and can spend hours laying on the couch reading a book from cover to cover.  I'm actually trying to make this more of a priority so that I can instill a love of reading in Hadley, too.  Monkey see, monkey do right?  I can't wait to read "Little House on the Prairie" and "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" with her when she's older!



I like to take pictures.  I am no photographer by any means, but I do like exploring life through the lens of my camera.  I'd like to take a photography class some day!

I enjoy a lot of activities, these are just a few!  And thankfully, these are things that I can pick up and do whenever I have some down time.  Which isn't often these days!  What are some activities you enjoy?  Anything I should try?
