To celebrate the release of the second installment in my 18 Things trilogy, 18 Truths, I’m hosting a blogfest! On top of that, you have the chance to win one of 18 wonderful prizes donated by 18 terrific people (* LOOK TO THE RIGHT, TO THE RIGHT >>TO ENTER . . . as a free wordpress site, this was the best I could do to host a Rafflecopter–does anybody know a better way?!)
Okay, then! Let’s get this party started! If you don’t know what 18 Truths is about, here’s a little sneak preview:
Now, here are the dets for the blogfest! Each person participating will post 2 Truths and 1 Lie about themselves sometime between today and Jan. 27th. People hop around and try to guess the lie! Players will reveal their Lie on my release day, January 28th!
1) I met my husband when I was 14, heard a voice in my head that said I would marry him one day, then actually married him when I was 18 years old.
2) I’ve been on two international mission trips and on one in Jamaica, I randomly met Queen Latifah, and then met Chris O’Donnell in Ireland on the other one.
3) This is my 13th year teaching public school, and I once had to save a child’s life who was choking on a mint in my classroom.
Okay, guys, Can You Handle The Truth *says in best impression of Jack Nicholson & doesn’t come even close* Please guess the lie in the comments below! And if you’re not playing yet, it’s not too late to join the party . . . You have until Jan. 28th! The Linky Link is below & don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter at the top ^ of the page!

Love the book trailer!
And I think number two is the lie. I really do believe that about your husband 🙂
I’m going to say the third one is a lie, just because it sounds the most likely.
Posted mine today! Although I will probably reveal my answers one day early…
I think 3 because I really want the second one to be true and I don’t think you’d lie about your husband…hmm. I’ve put a note in my diary to come back on 28th.
I agree with Debbie. I think 3 is the lie. You don’t look old enough to have taught for 13 years. I’ll post mine on Friday. Congrats on your new book! Very exciting!
Okay, I’ll ❤ you forever for that comment, lol!
Great trailer! Love the story about how you met your husband, and the international mission trips. I also think that #3 is the lie. Thanks for hosting this fun blog fest Jamie!
Thanks for stopping by! Glad you liked the trailer 🙂
Cool trailer! I’m going to guess that #2 is the lie…all of them sound feasible, I just feel comfortable guessing #2 for some reason. Congrats on the upcoming book release!
I’m guessing #2 is the lie. This has been a fun blog fest. Hope it gives your book some good exposure!
Thanks, Sherry! Me too, but the most important thing is people have FUN and get to know each other better 🙂
I vote number three is the lie. I think you’ve been teaching about seven or eight years now…
Okay, I’m guessing number two is the lie. The husband story rings true and I’m pretty sure you’ve been teaching a while. You’re too good at it to be a newbie!
Aww, you’re too sweet to me, Lynn 😛
I’m going to guess #2 is a lie, but only partially, like you really did the trips but didn’t meet both of those celebrities. I believe you save a child’s life and the husband part rings true for some reason. I hope to join this hop later, gotta run to work.
Work is always getting in the way of our fun, isn’t it? 😉
I’m going to say #2 because why couldn’t you know that your husband-to-be was your true love. Also, my husband saved someone from choking once, and I know how easily it can happen. I’ll make a note to myself to come back on the 28th.
Nice thoughts 🙂 See you on the 28th for the big reveal!
I’m going to say number 2 is a lie.. the others sound like the truth:)
Interesting, because part of the statements you made might actually be true while the rest is exaggerated!
So it’s between 2 and 3, and because you seem gregarious enough to have met some celebrities, I’m going to go with 3 being the ‘Lie’.
I totally believe you could save a child’s life though!
Fun blogfest! I’m staying tuned for the answers. 🙂
I like your reasoning! All these lies are killing me, lol!
Great book trailer!!! And I think it’s #2.
Thanks, Tyrean! It was my first attempt at creating a book trailer . . . not too shabby 🙂
Darn. I should know this. So, I think I’m going with #2 is the lie. Maybe not the number of mission trips, but the celebrities you met while there. (?)
I say #2, but anything is possible! 🙂
Hmmm…..I think the lie is number 3….I know you have been teaching but I don’t know how long and you are such a wonderful person I think you have been on missions trips….
Aww, you’re too kind, Shannon!
I found this thanks to the Ninja Captain, Alex, so I really have no idea, but I’m going to guess number 3 because it seems too true. Does that make sense? LOL
I love your convoluted thought process, lol. So glad you found me through our head Ninja Captain–he rocks!
Why does this have to be so tough? I’m picking #2 (Saving a choking kid certainly falls under the daily duties of a teacher 🙂
Cool game , Jamie. I’d guess 2. 🙂
Thanks, Kourtney . . . it has been tough!

Sounds very interesting, though I don’t know you well enough to guess. ^_^ I’ll believe #1 is true, though, because sometimes there are things we just know. Heh! Might have to participate if I can remember to make another blog entry in the next two days.
You should! Still have 3 1/2 hours left 🙂
Wonderful blog fest, I came a bit late to the party, but I am really enjoying it. For you I am guessing number 1 is the lie, only because my daughter is nearly 14 and I can’t imagine her meeting someone she might know she will marry.
Scary thought, isn’t it, Rhonda? My daughter turns 14 in June . . . they grow up waaaay too fast!
Oh, these are tough! Great facts, Jamie. I’m guessing 2 is the lie. although it’d be awesome if they were all true!
