Hum...I guess my favorite hobby would have to be playing with my daughter Morgan. Its a fairly new hobby (she is almost 14 months old) but without a doubt its my favorite and the most time consuming!

My other favorite hobbies are reading, cross stitching, crocheting, scrapbooking, reading/writing blogs and photography - too bad I hardly have time for that stuff anymore thanks to my favorite hobby!

MommaWannabe said...

First of all congrats on your new blog. Both blogs looks so adorable! You did such a wonderful job.

Would love to win a 3 column custom design for my new blog.

My most favorite hobby is blogging;) And next to that is surfing the net, sewing,photography and reading.

I posted about your contest on my blog and here's the link:

And added your button as well in my site:)

Have a wonderful weekend!

What a fun give away! I would love to win.

My favorite hobby is a toss up. I LOVE LOVE LOVE cooking. I do it daily (multiple times a day usually) and am working on starting up a cooking blog.

I also love sewing. I do it to releave stress. I am not very good and I could never make a living doing it, but I love seeing my 3 yr old gush over her "pretty pretty" jammies.

Robin Ilac said...

Thanks for leaving a comment about our party! It is going to be so much fun!

I love your website and would love to win a custom design!

My favorite hobby is scrapbooking when the boys in my life let me.

Robin Ilac said...

I put your button on my sidebar and put up a post:

http://blondereviews.blogspot.com/2008/09/win-custom-blog-design-from-mommy.html

I would LOVE to win a design from you. Your site is gorgeous!

I had a custom design for my review blog before, but the person who designed it went out of business and didn't give me the photos (they were in her Photobucket account)

So one day, my whole blog was just Photobucket errors. :( Now, I'm using a free template but really miss having a custom design.

Thanks for doing this giveaway!

Trish said...

I'd love to win this!

Minxy Mimi said...

My favorite hobby is reading... Harry Potter, mysteries, romance!!! I also collect rocks and stamps.

1stopmom said...

One of my favorite hobbies is reading. I love to read almost anything. When I read it takes me somewhere else and I get to relax. The only bad part is once I start reading a really good book I can not put it down. I have to keep on reading until I finish.

Jenna said...

My favorite hobby is anything to do with the babies! I'm learning more and more about blogging so that is definitely fun for me-I've been looking into a Blog Design because I've actually thought about going into a self-hosted site!

Thanks for a great giveaway!

Chic Shopper Chick said...

My favorite hobby is improving my french. I have a degree in French, but I like to improve, and I also like to learn as much as I can about the french culture. I collect everything "French" -- you would be able to tell as soon as you walked in my house!

I could really use this for a personal blog that I've been wanting to start. Thanks so much for the great, great giveaway!

Mik said...

Here via Blondeblogger's blog, my favorite hobby is photography, done it professionally many years ago, but now just a relaxing pastime.

If I win this will be for my Blogger blog that I run along with my WordPress blog.

Bobbie said...

thanks for the chance!

Courtney said...

My favorite hobbies are reading and taking photos.

piece of me said...

I could really use a new blog design. I guess my favorite hobby is shopping but now that I have a child I never get to do that anymore :) But I also like to scrapbook.

I so so need this! Hoping I win this one
- blogged about it at my site

Patty said...

My favorite hobby would have to be reading a John Grisham novel. Though I don't get much time these days with a 1 and 4yr. old running around, but whenever I get a little free time, that's what I'm doing. I completed all of the items listed in order to gain the maximum entries allowed. I could really use a makeover and a fresh new start. Thanks for the opportunity!

Alyce said...

I added your button to my blog. Here's the link:

Alyce said...

Declaring a favorite hobby is difficult for me, because I have two favorite hobbies and to declare one more important than the other seems wrong. :) I love reading, and I love playing my flute. They both enrich my life, and I wouldn't want to live without either activity.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

My favorite hobby is playing with graphic design . . . making buttons, siggies, tags, etc . . . It is a great creative outlet for me and when I'm done, I have something to show for my efforts.

madeleine said...

what a beautiful blog! i heard about you from the turners.

it's tough to narrow it down to a favorite hobby but i really do love unwinding by cooking and baking. my thirteen-month old loves to sit in her highchair and watch me chop and stir so that has made it even more fun.

it's so great to see Christian moms out in force on the blogs these days!!!

My favorite hobby (to play) is/was softball. I played from the time I was 4-18. I miss it so badly!! I truly hope my daughter decides to play so I can at least watch and maybe coach :) Also, I love to watch NFL football. I'm a crazy fan!

Thanks for the opportunity!

Sissy said...

My favorite hobby is most definately reading. It's my favorite because I get so little time to do it since I had these crazy kids of mine. And no, reading 'Alexander' six thousand times a day doesn't give me my fix. Oh, and a close second hobby is writing/blogging. Hence my obsession with redesigning my blog layout. I'm taking this contest as a sign. Your page looks fantastic!

oh and I did post about the contest and placed your button in my sidebar.

fingers crossed for myself! thanks!

Channah said...

Wow, my favorite hobby would have to be baking and cooking. I love tinkering in the kitchen.

Jenna said...

Favorite hobby, eh? I like crafts and do them all the time but I LOVE training my dog! We compete in traditional obedience and rally in two venues, APDT and AKC. We've won awards and titles but really, I just love training and setting goals for us to reach! It really makes me smile to think of all that we've been through and how far we've come thanks to training and working together.

Stacey said...

My favorite hobby is reading. Wait, no -- honestly? It's blogging! Since the beginning of this summer, I've become addicted. I would read blogs and write posts all day long if I had to!!!! The only day I take off is Sunday.

Tarasview said...

My favourite hobby is blogging! I adore it. It is totally keeping me sane :)I recently started a book blog too so I could combine my SECOND favourite hobby (reading) with my first fav. My new blog is PAINFULLY in need of a makeover. It is dreadful.
