In his spare time, Chris loves to bake for his family and friends, read while enjoying a cup (read as "pot") of coffee, get in a workout at the gym, walk aimlessly around Target, spin in circles outside with CeCe, and accomplish tasks on his To-Do list so that he can make an immensely satisfying check mark next to each completed task.
