Thanks everyone for playing along! I had a blast guessing your lies so be sure to go back and reveal your own lie in your comment on the original post found here!
As far as my little lie…shall we figure that one out!
- As a child I trained to be a diver, as in spring board 3 meter and higher. I was recruited to train at the Olympic Training Center in Long Beach, CA at the age of 1o. TRUE!
I started taking diving lessons at the age of 8 and took to it like a fish to water! I had no fear and loved the 3 meter board. I was recruited to train at the McCormicks Diving center in Belmont Shore Olympic center. They train there for the Jr. Olympics and other national competitions. When I went for a tour I chickened out when I saw the huge platforms and never joined the team. Still one of my biggest regrets in life. I did continue diving and was on the Varsity team as a Freshman but my diving “career” came to an end when I slipped in the locker room and broke my toes in three places.
2. I’ve been on American Idol. TRUE!
But only if you count the fact that it was during a recording of the show when they panned the audience!
It was 2007, the year Jordan Sparks won and my dear sweet friend Courtney got us backstage passes and tickets to see a recording. Her husband works for FOX so we got to meet the contestants after the show!
Dancing with the Starts was filming on the stage next door so all the dancers were coming out at the same time so we snapped a few shots with them as well. Hi Cheryl!
Umm yeah! That’s me being me and throwing up my dancer leg! Wish I could still do that!
3.I’m in the process of writing of book that will be published in the fall. It’s a compilation of DIY craft ideas for home and family! FALSE!
As much as I wish that were true it’s not! 10 years ago I introduced myself and when they asked me to include a goal for myself I said I wanted to be a published author in 5 years! Well we all can do simple math and you and I both know I’m about 5 years over due on that one! As fun as I think a DIY book would be, my passions in writing have always been with children’s stories, short stories and I’ve even written the first chapter to a novel. I have a file folder filled with my writing and yet there they sit…doing nothing but reminding me of the fact that I haven’t done anything YET!!! Maybe I need to work on that!
Thanks again for playing!
