My blogger buddies, Natalia at All the Things and Candice at Just Stay Lovely both tagged me for this Truths post. I’m flattered that they both thought I’m interesting enough to read more about.
I used to be blonde. I was born blonde, well hairless really, but was a blonde as a baby and a young child. Around 11 my hair started getting darker so at 13 I began highlighting it…and didn’t stop until November 2012 when I decided to go brunette. People who only know me as a brunette can’t imagine me as a blonde. What do you think?
I love dressing up. Ears, masks, funny hats, you name it. This turkey hat was a gift from my best friend for Thanksgiving this year. She saw it and thought of me. Naturally.
I’m a country girl at heart (see Truth Five). I have a boundless love for country music, cowboy boots and camouflage I know the difference between Real Tree and Mossy Oak. I want to go muddin’ and have a farm one day. This slightly contradicts Truth Four.
I must get a weekly manicure. I have a horrible habit of picking my cuticles and without a manicure, my fingers will end up torn to pieces. I justify this as a legitimate health reason for pampering.
Not to perpetuate gender stereotypes, but I’m fairly “manly” in certain respects. I know how to use power tools, refinish furniture, like shooting guns, and drink scotch (neat). Some men joke that I’m more manly than they are, which is probably more fact than fiction. I’m not afraid to get dirty, although I still freak out when I see stinkbugs in my house. I refinished my kitchen table last year, see? Note: This is before the poly coat on the table top.

I’m super annoyed that the formatting of this post isn’t consistent. It’s driving me batty but Blogger hates me and I can’t figure out the HTML. Serves me right for copying and pasting an easy format from another blog–ahhh!
