Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughter. Some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach…which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
What is your favourite Christmas Memory?
Oh, man … it was a LONG time ago, and it will probably seem weird to all y’all, but whenever I see pictures I remember this being an amazing Christmas. My mom’s side of the family (incredibly small compared to my dads) was at my grandparents’ house, along with my great aunt and uncle. I don’t know why, but we were dancing to the Macarena—all of us—and my great uncle Johnny was skipping through where we were all dancing and trying to sing the song. He was blind—which is why he didn’t know the dance—and I absolutely adored him and the way he didn’t let the fact that he was blind stop him from being the life of the party.
Best Gift you have received?
Ha … to be honest, probably the North and South DVD set from my mother-in-law before she was my MIL. I’m not big into history, and that helped me understand a LOT about people from the South before I moved here. It was like she was preparing me or something. Haha.
Best Gift you have given?
I made these collage-type things for my parents, and both sisters. I loved making them and love seeing them hanging in their houses when we go back home.
Do you have any Christmas Horror Stories?
Haha! I’m sure I have plenty, I’ve just chosen to block those memories.
Any Christmas traditions?
Err, nope! Spend time with family.
Favourite Christmas movie?
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!
Where is the Elf on a shelf?
Those things are so evil looking! I swear there will never be one in my house!
Favourite Christmas food?
OH MY WORD! Pull-a-parts. Kind of like monkey bread but WAY better. You take Pillsbury biscuits in the little rolled thing, and tear the biscuits up into a bread pan, cover with cinnamon and sugar (continue in layers) and then cover in melted butter and bake in the over. Amazing.
