I'm here! I'm just boring.

I didn't fall off the face of the planet. I know, it's been a while. I apologize. Even my husband, who I actually live with, asked me why I haven't blogged. Here I am!
Unfortunately, I just don't have much to talk about.

Which is so funny.

Because anyone who knows me knows I always have something to talk about. Always.

This week has been an unusually slow one.

So, tomorrow I will think of something interesting to blog about, I swear. Maybe even tonight, we'll see. I just wanted everyone to call off the search parties. I'm here!

Hey here's an idea, tell me what I should blog about! Leave a comment, let me know. It's very easy, you don't even need a google account if you're the last human alive that doesn't have one.

30 Days

I thought I would jump on the "30 days" bandwagon and just put it here. So here's some things about me. All 30 days =)
This can also be found on the "About Molly Photos" tab!
**Warning- Crazy Long Post**

Day 1- A picture of yourself with ten things about you.

  1. I love my dog Hank. 
  2. I hate feet.
  3. My middle name is Michelle.
  4. I married the love of my life on May 7th, 2010.
  5. I read a lot in the bath tub. 
  6. I am a facebook addict, but I don't have internet at my house all of the time so my phone is ALWAYS dead.
  7. I'm training to be a Doula and will be certified by the time my Zack gets back from Bahrain.
  8. I'm not a good cook, but I'm learning.
  9. I'm a worrier, and I care about everyone. (See: nosey)
  10. Family is the most important thing in the world to me. 

Day 2- A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.
My bachelorette party
My friend T. Traci and I have been friends longer than anyone else I've been friends with. We met before Kindergarten and we've been friends since. 20 years-ish. Crazy.
I love T.

Day 3- A picture of the cast from your favorite show.

I love TV. My first thought was to put a picture of the Penguins Of Madagascar, because that show cracks me up. Then I thought of about 100 more but settled with Sons Of Anarchy. Then I changed my mind again, and decided on Modern Family.

Day 4- A picture of your night.
Last night was a Wednesday. We had dinner with my parents and watched some TV with them at their house. Then we came home and Zack and Hank bid on stuff on eBay and I took this terrible picture.

Day 5- A picture of a favorite memory from the last year.
click the picture to read about how we ended up together
This picture was taken at the bar we went to after we got married. I love our Zoolander pose pictures. And I loooved the day we got married.

Day 6- A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day.
At first I thought about going with my sister-in-law Andrea, because I could definitely go for a day with my in-laws and niece and nephew, and I know she could use a day with her brother! But, then I realized if we switched places Zack would be super bummed that he didn't get to see everybody. I don't want him to be jealous. So, I went with Oprah Winfrey.
Because I really need someone to come in and paint my house, also I could use some new furniture and etc. and I know if she came to my house she would bring in Nate Berkus and he would totally hook us up. Plus then I could hang out at her house all day. Get some shopping done. You know.

Day 7- A picture of your most treasured item.

Well the things that are most important to me aren't things. This one is tough. They're people and animals, that mean the most to me. Item's don't mean much, really. And, I have some great items. I have a super nice car. I have a sweet pair of Tiffany earrings. I have a purse made from my husbands uniform, that is very important to me. I have a house full of stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. It's just not anything that can't be replaced is all. But I settled on my wedding ring. It's beautiful and it symbolizes a lot for me.

Day 8- A picture that makes you laugh.

For some reason when Zack and I go with my parents anywhere they make us ride in the back of their tiny little car with my brother. Who is 6' 6". This is us on the way to a wedding.

Day 9- A picture of the person people who has have gotten you through the most.

I have the best, and funniest, parents in the entire world. This is them at my Dad's 50th birthday party. The fact that I was able to operate my cell phone enough to take this picture considering the amount of alcohol I had in my system, is sort of amazing.

Day 10- A picture of the person you do the silliest things with.
If you've read the post Serendipity, you know how much Haley means to me. I've had a lot of fun with Haley. In this picture we were under an influence with Lisa and Tierra. We laughed until we almost died. 
Day 11- A picture of something you can’t stand.
I  can't stand animal abusers. I can't stand animal abusers. I can't stand animal abusers. There is no excuse. In my opinion if you can hurt a child or an animal, you are a sociopath. No matter what position you play.

Day 12- A picture of something you love.
I love dogs. Really I love all animals. But I'm definitely a dog person =)

Day 13- A picture of your favorite band or artist.
I've always loved Blink182. My music taste is super eclectic. But I've always loved Blink182.

Day 14- A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without.

Day 15- A picture of something you want to do before you die.
I can't wait to go skydiving!

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.
Ina May Gaskin is amazing.

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity.

Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change.
Dear God, Please help the Westboro Baptist's to see the error of their ways. They are a sick, sick, group.

Day 25 - A picture of your day.

Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you.
My purse made from the Navy uniform that Zack wears. I like to have that with me all the time. I am so proud of him =)

Thank GOD

I hate Ice. I hate icey conditions. I have always erred on the side of caution when it is snowing and cold outside I prefer to stay home. I don't like the idea of being in an accident any more than I would actually like having an accident. It makes me very nervous.

A couple of months ago a friend of mine was very randomly killed in a car accident. It was awful. He was newly engaged. It really could not have been sadder.

That incident set my anxiety level at an all time high. Every time Zack leaves my heart drops. Even when it's not icey. But lately it's been super icey and I pray every time he leaves, almost the whole time he's gone, that he will come home safe. It makes my stomach turn. Until I'm a shakey anxious mess.

Then, on Monday, I got a panicy phone call from Zack.

This is what happens when the roads are icey and someone runs you off the road.

A totaled car.

These pictures make me sick. Really. It's hard for me to look at them. The next picture however makes me want to cry. It makes me want to get sick.
Thank GOD for these guard wires.

That's his head lights. In the guard wire. Those wires are what kept him out of on coming traffic.

I was at home blogging about spiders and cleaning out living room and he was spinning full 360's on the interstate.


He was really upset with me when he came home. Because I couldn't be upset. I had to act like it was nothing. Because I'm already crazy. I can't think about how bad it could have been.
I love him so much.


Thank GOD.

NOW my crazy is at an all time high.
