I thought we'd try yet another fantastic, fun weekly post! I thought a Fun Fact every Friday would be a wonderful way for everyone to get to know one another better. Every Friday a question will be posted and you have to answer it! It may be something as simple as, "What's your favorite color?" to something complex like, "Was your childhood good, bad, or ugly?"

So today's Fun Fact Friday question is...................

................ WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?!

Well before pregnancy and thus ber rest...  We live out in the country so we like to do stuf outside.  Things like riding the fourwheelers, ride the horses, play whatever kind of sport is on for that weekend (we usually try to plan them - there is usually 3-4 families that join in).  Friends are a big deal to us and most of them also have kids so we all tend to hang out together as one HUGE family unit - you should see us if we go out to eat or something =D, but we mostly try to take turns hosting something from home.  We also have a pool so we like to do that.  On every Sunday, we drive about 40 min to join Grandma for church and then spend the day with her (usually doing whatever needs to be done around the house and farm).  Mon - Fri my hubby works nights so we don't see him much (expecially now that I'm at my parent's house in bed) but I try to have at least one night where my daughter and I do something special like a craft project or if we're really feeling like it, we occasionally (not very often) break out the junk food and watch movies - some day we'll be able to watch something other than cartoons, I swear I hear some of those characters in my sleep and I know that everyday things can trigger the songs like whenever the phone rings in my head I go to the wonder pets song... Sooo annoying LOL.  Basically we lead pretty boring lives but we enjoy it and figure as long as we are doing something together that's all that matters.  But once in a while, and I always feel bad about it since we only see him on the weekends, I steal my husband and we get to spend some time just us (although most of the time we tend to just hang at home and cuddle on the couch or watch a movie because neither of us really wants to go out when we can enjoy the peace of just being - all of you who are already Mommys prob know what I'm talking about and if you aren't a mommy yet, you will :D

I like to spend time with dh....he's my best friend...we go hiking, canoing, walking at scenic places like an abbey that is near us.  I like to read for pleasure-I just finished my Master's plus 15 additional credits, so I am JUST getting some leisure time to read what I want to read for fun!  I also really like shopping-I love finding a good deal!  And...I secretly enjoy those trashy magazines like 'In Touch', OK, etc.  I like seeing celebrities without makeup and to see that they have some cellulite!  That is my guilty pleasure every now and then!

Fun for me is watching my children play outside with the neighbor kids, they play baseball, basketball, and kickball. Its tons of fun just watching them enjoy themselves.
I like to relax in bed with DH and watch TV or read. I love to cuddle as it makes me feel so secure.

When im by myself I tend to just relax on the couch, grab a nice hot chocolate or iced coffee (hehe) play my nintendo DS, do crosswords, read, watch TLC, Lifetime, or discovery health lol. I also like to just soak in the tub with the ipod and some candles and insence.

For fun, DH, his son, and I play World of Warcraft together.  =D  When I'm by myself, I usually like to read and I've recently picked up crocheting (both my mom and grandmother have crocheted forever ...so I thought I'd try to learn too!  Keep up a family tradition or something! =D).  In the summer I love going to the beach and swimming ...but now that I'm in Nebraska, I don't see much of the ocean.  I just need to find a nice pool now.  =D

Fun time is on the weekends. During the week im all pooped out. Getting up at 6am to be at work at 730am sure isnt fun anymore, since all i do is toss and turn all night & get up about 3 times to pee.
So i love to scrapbook, i havent in a while since its all put away right now since we should be moving soon. Hubby & i love to fish, go camping, go on hikes, stay home be lazy :) & rent movies. We both love to read so we get our books or magazines and chill for 30 minutes in bed before we hit the lights.
Before i got pregnant, we did enjoy going out to the bars having some drinks, and i love love to dance. I can be on dance floors for hours.
We like having get togethers with friends & have BBQ's.

*SIGH* wish i was in bed right now being lazy...so tired!!

Before I was preggo, DH and I liked to go places.  We don't have alot of money so we usually would throw a tent in the car and camp out (with an air mattress of course).  We like to go to state parks and go hiking, fishing, etc.  I like to read while he fishes.  Some people don't realize how much beauty they have so close to their home.  People should visit state parks more often (at least I can vouch for Ohio), even if it is a day trip.  Ohio has some awesome state parks.  DH and I found one that was only an hour away from where we live that had caves and water falls, that we never went to until after we were married and in our 20's.  

We also like to go to baseball games (I love my RED's).

I make other people laugh. I think that everything I do, no matter how serious, has some fun to it.

For me the fun really only consists on the weekends these days, as my job seems to sap every bit of energy from me!

We love to take off with our canoe and combine fishing and beer! haha. Well now that we are getting more serious about TTC the beer part has been cut down on my part (not so much DH! lol). And my 5 and 7 yr old love to fish as well so it's alot of fun!

But sometimes I just love to stay home under a blanket, watching movies or reading. In the winter I LOVE to snowboard, which I must say is something I will really miss this winter if all goes well..... :)

FUN??!??!?!  People still DO THAT???  Gettin on the computer is really what i do for fun.  I don't have time for the things I like to do like reading or crafts so I settle for a little computer time occasionally.  I do get a big kick out of some of the things my kids say and do...that's a ton of fun :)

Honestly, not much.  With all the kids and me working full time, there just isn't much time to do things and I'm really tired on the weekends.  I really like to read but I haven't in a very long time.  I like watching General Hospital (ha ha), but I don't do that much either.  I record it everyday, but I had to delete all of May's episodes earlier in the week.  I knew I would never have time to catch up on over 2 months worth of episodes.  I will be off all next week.  Taking some time off but I will just be at home so maybe I can catch up some next week???

I like to watch Food Network with my girls.  They call it "Cooker Shows".  It's so funny but believe it or not, they have their favorites on there.

My DH works a lot also, so he is normally only home on Sundays.  He is usually catching up on some much needed rest and I am usually doing laundry and things to prepare for the next week.

Oh, we do like to grill outside!!!

Pretty boring I guess :)

For fun I LOVE TO READ! I'm such a nerd!

I also blog, write books, and scrapbook.

My MIL taught me to crochet during my first pregnancy. So far all I can make are baby blankets!

Since I found out I was pregnant...

"Fun" for me is being at home, reading, and just resting!

Prior to the pregnancy, I LOVED to go out, go dancing, and have cocktails with friends..Travel, and waste money on nonsense like that!!  =P

I like this WAY better than the weight tracker thread! =)
