Ask the Readers: What Is Your Favorite Weekend Activity?

By Ashley Jacobs on 17 March 2015 64 comments

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Guest, Allison, and Elena for winning this week's contest!

For most of us, the weekend is when we relax and recharge after a week of work. It's when we finally (and hopefully) have time to do the things we love: go on day-long outings with our favorite people, finish craft projects, or prep next week's dinners — that can be fun, too!

What is your favorite weekend activity? Are you actually able to do it every week — or would you want to? Do you prefer to have productive weekends, or do you reserve this time for rest and relaxation?

I have two favorite weekend activities -- resting and working out! I use the weekends to catch up on sleep and also make-up for any missed workouts.

In the summertime our favorite activity is being outside! Camping, working in the yard, sitting out on the deck reading, having a cookout! We're not big fans of the cold, so in the wintertime it's reading or watching movies.

My favorite weekend activity is cooking. I don't usually have enough time during the week to really cook, so I make one big meal on the weekend and eat the leftovers all week. I'm single, so it isn't hard to do that.

I have a rotating schedule, so my weekends often fall on week days. Perfect for running errands and meeting friends for lunch! But my favorite thing is to park myself at a coffee shop to work on my blog and read whatever book I'm into for awhile.

If the weather outside is not so great, I'd catch up on all the shows I DVRd during the week....while folding the laundry.
