Girl, I am in the same boat! I started reading again at night.. for about a half hour before bedtime. It’s an escape into a totally different world. 

We also have 2 dogs, which definitely helps with the distraction too πŸ™‚

Yoga is awesome!!!! I did it for awhile, and swear to myself I will get back into it but haven’t yet. It is so incredibly peaceful and makes my body feel amazing.

I just took a knitting class, not too hard but not too easy.  I’m obsessed now with doing it better.  Also movies, and watching tv shows back to back hehe.

Reading and scrapbooking!! They keep me sane.

You could do some sort of home project! I always find rearranging my bedroom or buying new storage containers for my closet feels like a major undertaking…

I second knitting or crochet. It’s fun once you get into it! Sewing is really productive because you can make yourself things, too.

I really like beading – it’s creative but you don’t have to be good at drawing or something (which I totally am not).  I think my Fiance might get a bit tired of following me around to bead stores in every city we visit, though πŸ™‚

Not sure what area you’re in, but in some parts of the country it’s getting about time to start gardening…

I have two hobbies: Baking and going to the gym.  They tend to offset each other nicely, πŸ˜‰

I don’t know how crafty you are but I love scrapbooking! My fiance’ is extremely talented with drawing/painting/sketching…and i’m not! I can barely draw stick people ;P But I love DIY projects and scrapbooking a favorite!! I love that my pages will serve as memories for myself, my future hubby and our families πŸ™‚

Accorn- I live in an apartment too.  Check if your town has a community garden.  Mine has one where you can get a small plot for free and grow whatever you want as long as you agree to do it organically.  I’m trying to get a space this year, as my little topsy turvy tomato planter on the balcony isn’t really cutting it for me, lol.

@greenleaf…that is AWESOME! I am not really a gardener..yet! but that is something I’d love to try! I am moving to Austin in a few months and hope they offer something like that since we will be renting (blah) for the first 6 months so we can really take some time to find a beautiful first home to share πŸ™‚

You need a hobby which you can practice for all those things!  I’d recommend scrapbooking, paper hobbies, knitting, or quilting.  The first two are great to learn before wedding planning because then you can DIY the heck out of everything and you already have the tools!  The second two are great to learn before a baby.
