Hi, My Name is Lauren

And I have no idea who I am...

I don't know about you but when I meet someone without fail every time they ask me what I like to do for fun, or do in my spare time I have no idea.  I balk at the idea that I even do anything other than work and lay on the couch.

Truth be told, I have no idea what I like to do but I know I like to do lots of things.  Did that make sense?  So here it goes, here is a list of things I like to do and what makes me who I am.  This list is comprised of the little/simple things.  Not the big things like traveling and scuba diving, because those aren't things I can do every weekend and especially not after work in the evenings.  So here it is, who I am and what I like to do for fun...  

-Bake and Cook
Yep, I like to do these for fun.  Baking is so fun because the end result can be so beautiful and yummy, and always puts a smile on someone's face.  Cooking is so enjoyable because unlike baking, you don't always have to follow the rules.  You can be a little crazy and leave something out, or add something extra.  Call me crazy, but that is my form of crazy!

-Watch TV
I truly enjoy watching tv.  It is something that my parents and I do together and we have some great shows that we watch weekly.  I feel like I have to put a disclaimer with this statement and reiterate that I am not a couch potato, I just really like tv and my dvr!

-Spend time on the ranch with the family
This varies in many ways and looks different almost every day.  Some days we spend time together just driving out in the pasture together to check on the cows.  Some days this looks like hard work vaccinating cows, and some days it is just 'pittling' in the shop with my dad.

-Lake Time
We are blessed to have a great lake in Sanger with two State Parks.  It always brings a smile to my face when we go to the lake.  Weather it is for just an evening, or a weekend I always enjoy it!

-Sports
This can look very different depending on the day.  Some days it looks like a Rangers game outing with the family, watching the game or an F1 race on tv, or playing my own sports.  I love to play tennis and ride my bicycle whenever it isn't too hot in this great state of Texas!

-Photography
This has always been a great love of mine!  My dad has always enjoyed it and this was handed down to my brother and I.  The best thing about this hobby is that it is not limited to just a trip with a beautiful view.  This can happen anywhere and anytime and I am so blessed to have a beautiful canvas in my back yard!

The list could go on and on, but I believe that I have hit the high point.  Yea me, for having a life!  I always joke that I don't have a life, but I do believe this post has proven me wrong.

What do you like to do for fun?  
What things do you like to do in the evenings after work?

Love getting to know you, Lauren. I agree, it's fun to experiment when cooking :) And the lake time sounds wonderful!
What do I like to do for fun? Too much to write here :) But a few things would be:
Camping deep in the woods. My hubby, son and I try and head up into the mountains for find a very secluded spot for camping where we hike, 4-wheel and enjoy nature.

Skiing and snowboarding. My dad taught me how to ski when I was 5 years old so he and I have always enjoyed our time together on the mountains.

Swimming. I used to tell God I wished He would have made mermaids because I wanted to be a mermaid :)

Playing piano. I love to be able to sit and play for hours, thinking and pondering about life and all that it involves.

Hope you have a great week, friend!

Hugs to you!

Love your list and getting to know you even more!! You are such a sweet, fun and genuine person!

My evenings are spent with my boys. Walks, playing outside, watching Mason play in his sandbox or riding his jeep and now his playset. Whatever it is, we all 3 do it together. I can't wait until we can all go on bike rides.
