    That's cool. My mom has been doing this with 6 girlfriends for almost 40 years believe it or not. Every month one of them cooks at their house, it rotates. Then at Christmas time they get all decked out and take a limo to a nice restaurant. It's cute, they've been doing it since before they were married :o)

      I don't feel like I have any proper hobbies...but I like:

      Reading

      Wine (my FIL has been into winemaking the last few years so I LOVE sampling what he's making, discussing it, coming up w/ new idea etc.)

      Entertaining - I love having people for dinner. We grill a LOT during the summer. Also we like to have parties, Halloween, New Years, 4th of July etc.

      Shopping

      Hanging out w/ my man! :-)

        -This forum
        -Searching for St. John wedding info- which isn't easy to find
        -Going out to dinner- though we've cut way back to try to save $$ and lose weight- all for the wedding
        -Traveling
        -Reading
        -Scrapbooking, though I don't do it much now

          I'm going to be honest - I love eating and sleeping. I DEFINITELY need new hobbies.

          I actually also love going to foreign films but I haven't been in awhile.

            I don't know if you could call them hobbies, but my life is mainly filled with wedding stuff (obviously!). Crafts for the wedding (searching for, buying, preparing and sewing the material for the OOT bags, VERY time consuming), a scrapbook for the guest book (purchased all kinds of stuff for it, but haven't done any work yet!).

            Normally I like to:
            Sleep
            watch tv (I am a slug, what can I say?)
            scrapbook
            dinner and drinks is my fave
            oh and then there is ANYTHING with my neice and nephew
            read

            I am stealing someone else's response for things I wish I did:
            work-out
            eat veggies
            jog
            (I often joke with my Mom that I want to get hypnotized into liking to sweat so I can work out, and liking food that is good for you instead of french fries and ice cream!)

              No we switch houses, us and 3 other couples. We try a new recipe each time and we always try a bottle of new wine, as well as some of our favourites. It works out that we have 3 dinner parties each a year. It is sooo much fun. It makes us get together with all of our best friends, the hard part is other friends hear about our dinners and want to join us.

                    I tried to start a supper club where the host made the entree & everyone brought a side. Then you brought copies of the recipe to pass out. The first one went great, but no one has offered to host the 2nd. It was also too hard to keep the group size manageable.



                    My hobbies change all the time. they are usually random, but I start each new hobby with massive amounts of enthusiasm. Right now I'm hooked on making video montages & taking pitures of things in nature that look like letters of the alphabet. Both ideas from the forum.

                    I always enjoy anything to do with pictures. Photoshopping them, making calendars, ordering prints, removing red eye, framing them, putting them in albums, etc.

                    I'm currently organizing a beer tasting party. Sort of a hobby.

                    I like to workout & hike. Watch TV shows on DVD. Swing dance. Plan the wedding. Listen to books on my ipod. Playing on this forum usually takes most my free time.

                      Mind you a lot of these have taken a back seat to the wedding planning but now that I'm a newlywed, I'll definately be able to get back into this stuff.

                      working out, running and training for races- I've been in a 5 k and a half marathon

                      Any type of art making- drawing, painiting, crafting, etc.

                      cooking and trying out new restaurants- I just joined a supper club a few months ago. there's a different theme every month. Everyone brings a dish associated with the theme and recipes for everyone. Next month, each person brings a ravioloi filling with a companion sauce. We are then going to press our own ravioli. I'm so excited!!

                      traveling

                      reading

                      I want to take Spanish lessons and I'm a little embarrassed to say....but learn to ride a bike. i never learned. Jay is going to teach me so we can go on bike rides together.
