Seriously. I read almost every single day. My kids take 1 nap a day at the same time for about 3 hours, give or take. I usually spend some of that time reading. I'll wake up early to read or, more likely, stay up waaaay too late. If I find a book I love, I've been known to read until 4am then get up at 7am.
I have always been that way. When I was a kid my parents never had to worry about me misbehaving or any of that, because I was always in the corner with my nose in a book. Little known fact about me: In 4th grade I was put in the "gifted and talented literacy program" because I tested at a junior in college level for reading comprehension. Haha!
I also really love music. I have super eclectic taste. Or as Chris calls it, weird taste. Ha! My current playlist (it changes constantly) has the following on it:
Poison & Wine - The Civil Wars
Feels So Close - Calvin Harris
Marry The Night - Lady Gaga
Run - Snow Patrol
Breathe Me - Sia
Lonely Boy - The Black Keys
Good Feeling - Flo Rida
Wonderwall - Oasis
All I Wanted - Paramore
The Funeral - Band of Horses
Into The Night - Santana
I Was Broken - Marcus Foster
Too Close - Alex Clare
Somebody That I Used To Know - Gotye
She's Long Gone - The Black Keys
I listen to everything - classical, Christian, pop, rock, you name it. Country is probably my least favorite, but I do listen to some of it (like Taylor Swift type stuff). Right now, I'd say my favorite band is The Black Keys. I've actually liked them for a couple of years now. I've never been to a concert (unless you count The Gaither Vocal Band, and I don't) but if I could pick one to go to, it'd be theirs.
Movies...well, I'm not a huge movie buff but I do like to watch movies. I wasn't able to go see The Hunger Games in the theatre, unfortunately, but I will watch it as soon as it comes out. I really wanted to see Snow White & The Huntsman - maybe for my birthday! As far as favorite movies go, I love Sweet Home Alabama, Christmas Vacation, Pride & Prejudice (the one with Kiera Knightly) and Serendipity.
Lastly, I really enjoy baking. I like to cook as well, but baking is my favorite thing to do. I love creating new recipes, and I really love sharing my creations with my friends and family. I post a lot of what I make in my recipes section. Christmas is my favorite time to bake - I probably make at least 10 or 15 types of goodies every Christmas!
