After the craziness of wedding planning was over, I have taken up some fun new hobbies.
I started doing some family genealogy research so that I can make a framed genealogy chart of our combined family history. I have made HUGE progress and even traced my lineage all the way back to a Revolutionary War patriot! I was able to join DAR because of that research, which was fun. Now when we have children they will be able to join any of the Revolutionary War lineage societies (DAR, CAR, SAR). I also connected with two 3rd cousins who gave me some really great old family photos, which I framed and hung up with our wedding photos. I am really pleased with all the progress I was able to make in such a short amount of time!
Lately I have also started becoming interested in bread-baking as a hobby. I just bought my first batch of sourdough starter and am excited to try my hand at some home-made breads.
What fun new hobbies have you taken up as a married woman?

I don’t have any new hobbies since getting married. I don’t even have enough money to take up the ones that I was doing before the wedding so definetly no money for new hobbies!
My dad is working on his side of the family geneology. I think they are only back to the civil war because there are so many different name variations.

I want to get back to my quilting, but first I have to get the spare room organized. I would also like to get more bike riding and kayaking in this summer since I iddn’t get to do too much last summer with all the wedding planning.

We’ve been cooking a lot more. We try to make at least two homemade meals a week, and try new recipes and new things. That’s the big one.
I’ve also started to research gardening 🙂 We’ve started to save for a house, and a priority for us is having a yard with room for gardens, so I’ve been looking into how it works, soil, the time committments involved, growing veggies, etc.
We’ve also been researching travel a lot, and have bought books on certain areas we know we want to visit relatively soon. We don’t have any definite plans yet, but we want to be prepared!

Well not married yet, few more weeks 🙂 But I have been thinking about what I’m going to do. I still serve on the Board for the Theater but I quit the rodeo committee because I’m burned out. I use to be in charge of the biggest event we did and it would take me 6 months of planning. So I’m not sure what to do my freetime.
Maybe I’ll work on re-painting/decorating the house some more!

We jumped into house hunting, which has come with an obsession over interior design blogs and searching for furniture. I’m looking forward to actually FINDING a house so I can put my energy into the house, rather than waiting for one!

Yoga! I teach it but haven’t had time/money to take classes at the hot yoga studio I love. Can’t wait to get back to that heat!

Starting a garden; organizing the house (we started living together right after the engagement, but jumped in the wedding stuff and never got really into decorating); planning our next travel; trying to get back on track with my training; running a 10k race in May…
Trying to keep myself busy! 🙂

Well normally at this time I would be mapping out a few trips for late spring and summer that Fiance and I can take on our motorcycles but I am preggo so that’s an out. I guess after the wedding I will be getting ready for the baby and finishing up the garden.

Just started a garden this weekend, and I’m super excited about it! Gotta love Houston weather in March 🙂 I used to do triathlons before Darling Husband and I met, and I’m thinking I’ll start up again.
@kayakgirl – we’re planning to bike and kayak more this summer too! We totally dropped off last summer from wedding planning as well 🙂

I can’t wait to get back in my kayak. My husband doesn’t kayak yet, maybe I” convert him, but a shuttle driver is always useful as well. We’re going out soon to look for a new bike for my husband. His old ten speed won’t cut it anymore.
