  1. I will guess the false statement is "I sleep with one eye open". If you do sleep with one eye open, how do you do that?!

  2. I don't use Shampoo!!!
    This is so cool, I'm gonna have to copy it and do it myself in a few days!

  3. I am going to have to do one of these too!!! What a great idea!!!
    Happy 100th post!! WOO HOO!
    Smiles - Stacey

  4. I am going to guess it's "I am afraid of the dark."

    Congrats on 100 posts.

    angelleslament @ gmail.com

  5. My guess is #3 - 'I own 8 pairs of cowboy boots'

    What a cool idea!!

  6. Wait, only ONE of those is false?? Ohmygoodness... you've even got ME tripped up. But then I do trip easily

  7. I hope you don't swear in ANY language, but then I've heard a little slip up now and then... just a little. Maybe in pig latin.

  8. I can't get over the fact that there is even a 10 percent chance that you don't use shampoo. You're killin me here. And, if you DO use shampoo, then it means you sleep with one eye open AND you curse in different languages. AND Patrick Dempsey. LOL

  9. OK Lexie! Which one is it? I know that it is hard for us girls to make up our minds but you have to give me just one answer....mmmK?

    You crack me up!

  10. What a fun post!! I wish I had known about doing this when I had my 100th post!! Thanks for linking to me!!!

    Happy 100th post!! I hope to be reading 100 more!!!

  11. Oh and I forgot!! The one thing that is not true is that you eat slow. That just seemed to "mormal" campaired to the rest!! My son sleeps with both eyes open, creepy!!

  12. i guess the 8 pairs of cowboy boots...

    This is cute! I didn't even know you make jewelry... WAY Cool...

    Calling you this afternoon, btw. Unless the world caves in. Because I'm actually home. *SHOCK*

  13. Yes, in fact, I do make jewelery. Beaded mostly but I do branch out occasionally and make some mixed media pieces.

  14. I guess that you don't swear in foreign languages because I can't imagine you swearing at ALL. But the shampoo thing --really that one was almost was my guess.

    PS: You would not even BELIEVE my word verification: uafevtjvx What the H**l? (in some foreign language)

  15. I guess it's "I sleep with one eye open." Is that possible??


  16. I'll guess the falst statement is
    #6 "I sing Opera"

  17. Well, I want it to be Patrick Dempsey. But that's probably true. I'm guessing the cowboy boots. Because unless you're counting your kids' boots... I've never seen you in more than two pairs (and not at the same time!)

  18. Ohhh the pressure –Yikes! Since gazing at your blog for a short time, my boys’ offered a random guess (but they agree, if I win I get to wear the earrings YEAA!)

    Here it goes: statement #9 is false: with a comment: “she’s an adult and she’s had WAY enough time to face her fears!”

    {okay – please don’t hold me accountable for their comment if it’s true– K, plz?)

  19. Hey - I forgot to tell you that "jj" above are my guys: Jasn + Jefy (dusty.puddles)

    My thot was -eating slowly- but it could be true as a distractinator thing – you may forget what you’re doing! =)

    ~ mom2daboyz ~
    (goin' w/da boyz guess btw)

  20. ps: any photos of such creativity?? i'd love to steal ... umm, I mean see your designs. =oP

  21. Ok well I know for SURE it isn't one of them... so I have an edge here, right? But still, I'm having a hard time! When is the deadline?!?!1

  22. Lexie, you sneaky little chickie you! Yes, I knew that you would know one of the things was true for sure but that still leaves nine.

    I will announce the winner on Sunday, so you still have time to leave me your answer.

    This is so much fun!!

  23. My guess is your afraid of the dark.


  24. Ok, purely a guess but...the one that's false is that you wanted to be an actress when you grew up.

  25. I have to think that 'I sleep with one eye open' is false! There's no way I think that one could sleep like that! LOL

  26. ***Googling "flying saucer bangs", suspecting that at one point I had them...***

  27. Oh...how nice of you to link me! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get over here and see your place.

    Congratulations on the 100th post!! That's a fun one indeed.

    I'm going to go with the Patrick Dempsey thing...because it's just kookie and you're a Grey's Anatomy fan. :)
