Friend Making Monday


Did you know that today is Friend Making Monday? aefilkins hosts this wonderful friend making opportunity, which I stumbled upon this morning while visiting a few SITSas. It's a great way to meet other bloggers, so I'm looking forward to getting involved...when I remember to participate, that is!

This week's question is a two parter:

1. What do you love to do?

I think this one's a no-brainer for me.

I love to bake...here's my favorite cupcake recipe

I love to cook...here's my favorite beef teriyaki recipe

I love to read...here's my favorite book I've read this year


2. What do you love to do but don't do enough of?

Write...though I do write a good bit on my blog these days...

Shop...because it's not very fun when the options are as limited as they are...and the funds being what they are...


3. What would you love to know how to do?

I wish I could sew...but I'm not entirely sure why...

I wish I was a better photographer...


So what about you? Want to make some new bloggy friends? Visit aefilkins to join in on the Friend Making fun!

I love to shop too, but I felt kind of silly posting that as a hobby even if I do it more than I do most other things..hehe I'm glad to know someone else is the same way.

♥Amber Filkins♥ said...

Welcome! First of all I ♥ ♥ ♥ your blog design!! It is SO adorable. Ugh! So cute.

I so want to try your cupcake recipe!! Very hard to buy 1 tbsp of half and half! :)
If I can find some mirin (what is it) I will definitely try your beef teriyaki.
And the book is now on my list! Thanks for sharing!!

It is a company called "Stampin' Up". I si s yoru typical home party thing but this one is aimed towards a hobby! SUPER fun!! I have gotten most of my stamps and supplies by hostessing parties for a couple years...at the instructors teach you how to do anything from basic stamping to difficult things...you pick...I am sure you could find out if there is someone near you as a consultant if you google it or something..Hope that helps..stop by any time to visit!! Your welcome to enter my two giveaways I have going...then ending this week!!

I would love to spend time writing as well. The blog is great for this but as a teen I always imagined someday writing a book....

Laura said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You'll have to post pictures of your little monkey. I can't wait to put my little buddy back into that! (I took the pics the day I bought it to make sure it fit....)

I also want to be a better photographer!! I think that a common mom thing, lol.

Christie said...

Happy FMM! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your chocolate chip cookies look so good, thanks for sharing the receipe. =) We have the same things for wanting to learn:sewing and becoming a better photographer.

Shelle said...

Hi, nice to meet you! I love shopping too, guess I just didn't consider it a hobby (hmm...more of a necessity lol). It's amazing how many people like to bake & cook. I don't, I think it's the arduous task of doing the dishes after.

Desert Rose said...

Happy FMM! If you happen to find the money tree before me, then feel free to tell me where to go and how to get there!

Dawn said...
