And me in my Jammies!



A party!  And me in my jammies with no makeup and my hair in a ponytail, sporting my cat-eyed reading glasses with all the rhinestones! 

It's me! 


Hi!  I'm Mollianne.  Welcome to MolliWorld, where I am the Queen of all I survey{mostly a very small bedroom in dire need of remodeling...on my extended list of things I'll get to someday}.  I'm a 50-something career homemaker who finds myself sitting behind a desk 40 hours a week wondering why I'm not at home in Camelot {yes...I live in Camelot.  Don't you just love it?}!  I'm looking forward to the possibility of retirement from that desk in the next 15-18 months.

The amazing Rocket Man


I am deliriously, happily  and blissfully married to the amazing Rocket Man {he's a real, live, honest-to-goodness Rocket Engineer} and we have 4 children {1 son, 3 daughters}between us, all grown and gone. We're happily-ever-aftering here in the Camelot subdivision. We love our quasi-empty next and the grandsons {The Boys Fantastic- Mac Attack and Boy Wonder} who spend their weekends with us.  We just ended 3 serene  years of NOT having a teenager around, since the youngest princess left her teenage years behind in 2008.  As of March 24, Mac Attack is 13 and we are in for a bumpy ride. 


The Boys Fantastic, Boy Wonder and Mac Attack

I work at The Church House as the Clergy Administrator {fancy title for preacher's secretary} and mostly love what I do there.  When I'm not doing that {and sometimes when I am} I find plenty to do.  I sing.  I read.  I write.  I occasionally make cards. I bake.  I cook.  I take pictures.  I knit a little. 

I got a .357 magnum for Christmas and I named it The Vera {because I store it in a Vera Bradley backpack in my closet}.   I think I'm very big now that I have my very own revolver.

Mollianne and The Vera
Rocket Man is my biggest hobby and I find myself lured to the couch to watch sporting events of all sorts just to sit next to him. I spend time in the garage with Rocket Man while he works on his cars {a 75 Camaro, a 65 Mustang and a 64 Falcon}. I'm working on a Junior Mechanic Merit Badge by fetching tools and turning wrenches. Sometimes, he even lets me play with the power tools!




I helped rotate the tires!

In the midst of all of that, we manage to find a lot of things to laugh about.  I guess I'm just easily amused.  Those are the things that I write about here.  I'm glad that you stopped by and hope that you have a wonderful time at the party!  Come back anytime. I'll try to always make it worth  your while.


I love smooching with the Rocket Man!

Stopping by from the Ultimate Blog Party! It is so nice to "meet" you. Those are some handsome boys there. We're just starting parenthood with our 16 month old. My parents are loving their new grandson though! I hope you're having a great day. I'm following now so I'll see you around!

Hi, Jeannette! Thank you for stopping by and for following me! I'm going to hop over and see your blog...love your name!

Marci said...

I too am from the Blog Party. You sound like fun. :) My husband wants to get me my very own pistol, but has not so far. I will be a big deal then too. :) We too are in our 50s and often wonder when the inside person catches up. I love your sense of humor!!!

Hi Mollianne! What an unusual name you have.

Marci and Brooke, thanks for stopping by. Brooke, I'm named for my Sweet Daddy's grandmothers, Maggie Anne and Mollie. I love my name and I love that my sister named her daughter after me.

Marci, so far...the 50s are the best! Been around long enough to sort of know what I want and occasionally have the means to do it. Let me know when you get your revolver! That picture of me was the first time I'd ever fired a live weapon and I loved it! I think we're going out to shoot some tomorrow.

Love your blog title. I am often amazed at my age and that I am now in the adult world, having a husband and three kids should clue me in, but sometimes I feel like I should still be a kid!

Laughed out loud and clicked "Follow" as soon as I read that you named your .357 magnum. Wandered over from UBP. I love smooching my man, too. Blessings.

Visiting from the UBP11-nice to meet you! It's refreshing to find a blogger who isn't in the baby/toddler/preschool stage.

Stopping by from UBP 11. This is my first year at the Ultimate Blog Party and I'm loving it! Your blog is adorable. I'm at the other end of the spectrum- I'm getting married (in 6 weeks) and moving into married student housing on a tight budget. You can check out my online life at www.morganandkari.com
