While I have an About page available for new readers, it’s nice to be more straightforward with some facts about me. I mean, that’s what social media is all about, right? Making connections, sharing a little about ourselves, and whatnot.
1. I haven’t cut my hair in two years
It’s true. I just can’t help but put it off more and more. I let my hair get really long before my last haircut, too…I just chalk it up to being lazy. I’m not-so-secretly hoping that I have enough hair to spare that I can donate some of it to charity once I do decide it’s time to cut it. If you’ve ever donated your hair, or have information on donating, please let me know!
2. I hate driving at night
How dumb is that? I whine like no other if Alex “forgets” his glasses and I have to drive us anywhere at night. I am not the best driver to begin-with, and adding night to the mix just makes me feel so dumb. I get so excited once the time changes and it’s lighter outside for longer.
3. I love watching House Hunters + House Hunters Renovation
…and Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives…and Property Virgins…any of these totally formulaic shows. Alex and I find ourselves saying awful things about the people on the house-hunting shows, I mean, why are you complaining about the color of the walls when you CAN TOTALLY PAINT THE WALLS WHEN YOU MOVE IN?! The worst. I’m hoping that all of our tv-watching will pay off when we finally decide it’s time for a more permanent home base.
4. I haven’t done a stitch of embroidery/cross-stitch (pun intended!) in over a year
You may not know this, but I started Campfire Chic as a support blog for an Etsy Shop I opened in June 2010. One of my biggest sellers (other than some notebooks I should get back into making) is embroidery and cross-stitch patterns and finished pieces. I was stitching non-stop when I first started adding certain pieces (who remembers the Campfire Cocoa cross-stich???) to my shop, but I currently only have patterns up for sale.

5. I love cookies way too much
Too.much. I bought 5 boxes of girl scout cookies and I ate an entire box of Samoas/Caramel-de-lites in a weekend. I’m in trouble whenever there are cookies in the office, and I’m pretty sure I answered “I am motivated by cookies” in a job interview once. It’s a problem.
In preparation for this post, I searched the archives for previous “fast facts” posts from me, and I’m surprised at how many posts there are!
