Completely Randomness...

I know we have all seen this before, but this particular tagging is meant to share completely random and perhaps hidden ones as well. I don't have ay deep, dark, and scandalous secrets to disclose, but even if I did, I don't think Blogland is the best place to disclose. I was tagged by my friend, Stacy over at Obsessed Mommy, Sister & Friend to tell these 7 completely random and perhaps hidden facts about me. You know the saying "You learn something new everyday." Well, my friends, today you are going to learn 7 new things. Now, let the learning begin! Here goes...

1. Matt Lauer: I have a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE crush on Matt! I adore him. I watch the Today Show faithfully everyday (I would even if Matt wasn't on) and just love seeing him. Knowing that he has three children makes him that much more attractive. Mr. Molly Lou know about this love affair and is coping with the fact that perhaps Matty and I will run away together. :)

2. Fuzzy Bathmats: I HATE fuzzy bathmats. Ever since I was a child, I have hated things in between my toes. (I love flip flops, but that is just one toe and is completely, completely different.) I used to come home from school everyday and ensure that there wasn't any sand between my toes by checking each one. Anyways, I hate fuzzy bathmats when you step wet feet down on to them. The fuzziness and wetness get in between my toes and cause serious anxiety issues. Poor Mr. Molly Lou, he loves a fuzzy bathmat, but by choosing to spend forever with me, he has said goodbye to the fuzzy mat. R.I.P. fuzzy bathmat!

3. Lizards: I hate lizards. I mean really despise and HATE, HATE, HATE lizards. They totally freak me out. You would think that after living in South Carolina and Florida, I would get used to them and those little chameleons wouldn't bother me in the least. I HATE THEM. When we were in Jamaica, a tee tiny baby got under the door of our apartment and it totally freaked me out. Mr. Molly Lou came home to me and Mini #1 (who was 7 months old at the time) on the couch that was moved to the middle of the room. He chased the little thing and threw it outside and proceeded to laugh at me for days. The little ones are the absolute worst. They are so quick and even more disgusting looking than their bigger friends. I have dreams and nightmares about them getting in to my house. If I ever disappear, it's probably the lizards that came after me.

4. Molly Lou Mini #1: I adore Molly Lou Mini #1, but I hate his name. I seriously spent the first 6 months of his life calling him a nickname that Mr. Molly Lou had given him in the hospital. At six months, I decided that the mini was going to have identity crisis if I called him something completely different than what the rest of the world was calling him. When we found out Mini #1 was a boy, Mr. was jumping up and down, SCREAMING because he was so excited. I thought I was going to cry. I wasn't upset that I would have this beautiful, smart, funny, and compassionate boy, I was upset on what his name was going to be. When Mr. Molly Lou and I started dating in college a bazillion years ago, he always said that his first son had to be named Molly Lou Mini #1*. It's his father's name and Italian tradition, blah, blah, blah. Keep in mind, it isn't a bad name and isn't weird, but there are just some names that you really don't like. I never thought much of it until we were expecting the mini. There was no caving and no compromise. The deal was that every child we had after mini #1, I got to name and he had/has NO SAY WHATSOEVER. He does like Molly Lou Mini #2's name and I was so incredibly generous and did give him an opinion.

5. Martha: I love me some Martha Stewart. I mean no one LOVES that she broke the law and went to prison, but the woman is amazing. I want to go to Bedford and see her royal digs. I could never be Martha, but I dream of being her cousin or sister. Mr. Molly Lou doesn't think so highly of Martha and I mentioned before about her Encyclopedia of Crafts book he wouldn't buy me for Mother's Day. I really wish I could be as creative as she is.

6. Obsessed: I am cleaning obsessed. I love to clean...there is instant gratification when you clean. It's dirty, I clean it, BOOM! Sparkling clean and it always smells so fresh when the house is clean. I hate to fold laundry though.

7. Pregnancy: I love being pregnant. I had just about the two easiest pregnancies. I was really nauseous with Mini #2 for months, but that was it. With Mini #1 all was perfect and he cooperated unlike Mini #2 and came a week before her scheduled c-section, leaving us with no one to care for Mini #1 at 12:30 am and I was a slacker and was still packing my bag. I digress, the Molly Lou family wants another baby and I can't wait to be pregnant again. (I know I TOTALLY just jinxed myself and when said Mini #3 is on the way, I am going to have the worst pregnancy known to man. You can all secretly laugh at me then.)

Won't you join me??? Come on, let's hear it! Think of it as free therapy!

  1. I'm with you on the lizards! Florida has some crazy bugs and I'm pretty sure they all live in my backyard (besides the baby dragon who resides by the front door).

  2. I am dying laughing at hating your son's name. My husband is the 3rd (well, all the middle names are different, but he's the 3rd generation to use his first name), and it's an Italian name, too. I HATE the name. It's a little unusual, people can never spell it, and it does not match my taste. I fear we will have to use it, and it makes me mad that my MIL basically named my unborn son. Thankfully the husband doesn't like the name either, so I may be able to get away with not using it. If we do use it, I am going to try my hardest to make it a middle name ONLY. I think I could live with that.

  3. Fun facts! I'm right there with you on the lizards! UGH!

  4. HAHAHAHA I love it!!!

    Hope your having a great day! I am {other than spilling coffee in my puter:) }

    OK, with the name thing, that is ROTFLOL FUNNY! I tell you what, Baylor was MY NAME....I wanted it! So, instead of having a 2nd {named after dad} we took his middle name and combined the 2. So it was WIN WIN.... {well, kinda but I wanted it to be Baylor Hass, I lost out on the Haas}

    I hate ROACHES as much as you hate lizards. I'd rather sit in cage with rats! isn't it funny how harmless things freak us out? Although I know what you mean about the BIG ones in hot Mexico, they are like the size of small DOGS! lol

    Oh and i am so OCD about cleaning. Let me share with you my daily chore chart!
    it's for MOMS!! I will have to look up the URL and shoot it to ya via email:)

    Have a great day sweetie....whew....1 more day closer to the weekend=)

    ps-not i didn't get an email last night :(

  5. Molly Lou Mini #3??? That's so exciting! I will now be ultra-sensitive to everything you say, just in case you start dropping hints that you may be expecting! Maybe it will be good luck for me to have my name twin get pregnant. Maybe I'll get pregnant too!

  6. That is funny about the bathmat. I have "texture" issues (though not about bath mats) and can totally relate. My 3yo also has very specific criteria for his blankets. They have to be smooth, never too warm, and a certain color. I can so relate. ha!

  7. I am with you on Martha. I subscribe to Living and always buy every wedding issue. It is a business tool right? She also kills me with all the craft supplies at Michaels and Wal-mart! Love Martha!
