Go big or go home

Every mom needs a little “me time” but these moms take their hobbies to the extreme. You may be surprised -- and perhaps inspired -- by some of the unique, super cool hobbies that these moms enjoy.


Go big or go home

Kerry Swetmon is a Georgia mom who takes her fishing seriously.

"It never ceases to amaze people when I say I'm a competitive angler. Once per year -- one wonderful, fabulous, extraordinary (long) weekend each September -- I leave everything behind (children, business and whatever other craziness is happening), and I travel to Texas and compete against 120 ladies in a fishing tournament. My husband knows I'm going, he knows he's in charge of the kids and he knows I look forward to it all year. And although I fly in from Atlanta, most of the ladies are from Texas.

But, don't let that fool you, we are all serious about winning first place!"
