Creative Writer Award - Six Lies & A Truth

Thank you so much to Katie at Health for the Whole Self for nominating me for the Creative Writer Blogger Award! It's my first award on Cupcakes & Combat Boots so it means a lot!

Have you ever played that little “get-to-know-you” ice breaker called “Two Truths and a Lie”? Each person shares 3 statements – two that are true and one that is false – and the others in the group try to guess which one is a fabrication.

Well, this is sort of like that, except it’s Six Lies and a Truth.

Basically, receiving this award means that I must share with all of you seven outrageous statements about myself – except that ONLY ONE OF THEM IS TRUE. Can you guess which one it is?

1. I broke my nose while playing softball in highschool when a line drive smacked me in the face.
2. The first thing I ever said to my husband when we met was an insult.
3. I changed my major 3 times in college.
4. I had a total meltdown/freakout on my wedding day.
5. I was/am a pretty good pianist. I even played in Carnegie Hall when I was 10.
6. I've spent the night in jail before.
7. I used to be such a neat freak that I would clean my friend's rooms for them when I would play at their houses.
That was way harder than I thought it would be. I'm not good a coming up with lies! But this should be pretty easy because I'm pretty sure the majority of my readers actually know me in real life. :)

My next duty is to nominate other bloggers who I believe will have fun with this creative challenge! Here are my picks:
1. Kelsey Lately
7. Graced by Wetzels (who might not have time to do it since she is about to pop out baby #2 any day/hour/minute now!!)

Once nominated, here is what you have to do:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and one outrageous truth.
5. Nominate up to seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.
Can you guess which one of my seven statements is the truth??


  1. Oh and btw :) Thank you. I will indeed have fun with this... especially while at work tomorrow :D

  2. I'm going to guess #1 - but I hope it isn't true, because that would have hurt!

  3. I think it is #2, not because I know it but b/c the others seem to be out of character for you....and I am pretty sure you never played in Carnegie Hall before!

  4. I may be totally making this up but I think I remember you being in softball in high school but I don't remember any nose injuries. Maybe I should get out a year book!

    I'm gonna go with 2 because it seems popular.

    Thanks so much for the award!
