Feature and Follow Friday! 5.2.14


Feature and Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers. But you have to know, the point of this hop is to follow other blogs also. I follow you, you follow me. 

The general rules are: 
- Follow the Feature and Follow Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read)
- Follow the Featured Bloggers
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts. 
-Grab the button up there and place it in a post. This post is for people to say hi and that they are now following you in your comments. 
-Follow, Follow, Follow as many as you can. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Don't just follow, comment and say hi in the post! Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say 'hi'
-If someone comments and says they are following you, please follow back! 

This weeks question: Share! Tell us about one of your hobbies other than reading! 

Ohhh! I have a new found love for golf! Never, ever though I would say that, but it's true! My fiance has been in a couple of golf leagues since we started dating, and took me out once, but I didn't enjoy it much. Then I went with my dad and brother, and then my whole family in Arizona, but I never got the hang of it, nor did I particularly enjoy it. But I decided to give it another shot with my fiance, and now that I've done it a few times, I LOVE it! We even joined a couples league which starts tonight! Hopefully the rain holds off so we can actually play :) But I suppose if it doesn't, we're going golfing with my dad and brother on Sunday, so that should make up for it (: 



I also like to run - wait, that's not entirely true. I enjoy running sometimes; other times I do it just because I feel like I need to to stay in shape! But let me tell you, when I have a good run, it feels amazing and is absolutely the best anti-depressant there is! 

(If only I looked this graceful when I ran!) 

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention this! I really love to crochet! It's so much fun and so relaxing to create something like this! I've made a bunch of baby hats that I will be donating to a local hospital, and my mom and I have a blog and Etsy page that we started. However, I haven't updated it in a few months because I haven't been crocheting lately. But hopefully I will soon (: If you'd like to check it out, the site is here. Below are hats and diaper covers I made for my friend for a gender reveal party.

  1. Wow it's amazing you play golf! My uncle loves golf, but I've never tried playing it nor have I been out to see my family members play. It's a pretty interesting sport! I prefer walking rather than running, though :) I find it more relaxing, but running is my favorite way of losing weight somehow haha! :)

  2. I played golf once and I really liked it, I would like to go again someday if it didn't cost so much.

    1. I really wish it didn't cost so much either. Its crazy expensive! Thankfully the league we're in is pretty cheap for golf standards, so that helps a bit (: Thanks for stopping by and following!

    1. It's definitely a male dominated sport, and I can always tell when I go shopping for stuff - its SO hard to find anything cute! lol finally found a cheaper pink putter and pink gloves. Next thing will be a pretty bag, but those are expensive and not a lot of options

  4. I feel the same way as you about running. Ha. Although I just started, so I have this love/hate thing going on with it. Haha.

    Awesome hobbies.

    1. Lol I've been doing it for a bit and I still have the love/hate relationship with it. Plus I'm not very fast and don't run very long distances. Thanks for stopping by (:

  5. I've never really golfed or crocheted but I run occasionally. I would love to get more serious about running but sadly my self-motivation skills aren't that great :/

    1. I know how you feel! Sometimes we take a week off from working out just to give our bodies a rest or if my fiance needs a break from lifting, but its so hard to start back up then!

  6. I had a friend tell me running is a good stress reliever. I'm thinking I really need to start doing that to relieve stress and get my self in shape.

    1. Its a very good stress reliever! Sometimes when I'm not in a great mood, its hard to get motivated to run, but after, its so worth it! I just feel so much better (:

  7. OOh nice! Not a golfer myself either. My aunt loves it! I like putt-putt though! Heehee!

    Not a lover of running but I like walking for sure!

    And awesome crocheting items! I don't think I would really have the patience for that myself. Was never really good with a thread and needle either!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!
