True or False

Had a fun weekend this past weekend.  Went 2 hours south to the Phoenix area.  Here's some tidbits about the weekend.  One of them is a false statement.  See if you can guess which one (answer on Thursday)

1.  It was 111 degrees in Phoenix.

2.  We got to see Black Jack (son/girlfriend's dog).

3.  We rented a car for the trip and took the insurance this time.

4.  We visited with a friend I met blogging over 10 years ago who we met finally face to face 6 years ago and have been through thick and thin over the years.

5.  We had lunch with said friend and even enjoyed wine tasting in Old Town Scottsdale.

6.  We found out we are going to be grandparents.

7.  We found a home we like in Phoenix and am going to make an offer on it.

8.  We stayed at a nice hotel, Best Western Inn Suites, that had a nice social hour with complimentary beer and wine and nachos.

9.  Had dinner at a delicious restaurant called Feeneys; I had chicken kabobs, hubby had London broil.

10.  We had breakfast with son and girlfriend this morning at a place called Matt's Big Breakfast, delicious food.

11.  I'm sure I gained 5 pounds with what I ate all weekend.

12.  We went to Musical Instrument Museum today.

13. I was glad to get home to Prescott where it was 96 degrees and not 110 degrees.

So which number is the lie?  12 truths, 1 lie.

Like I said, answer on Thursday.

Hope all dads out there had a good Father's Day!

Father's day was a good one in Omaha...

I did not know you were in Prescott... anywho, although I believe you will be fine grandparents when the time comes, that is something I don't think you discovered this weekend..!

TARYTERRE said...

WOW this is a tough one. News of a baby on Father's Day is a possibility. I'll say you did not see the dog or did not find a house. And I'm probably way off base, right?.

Rhonda Albom said...

I am guessing you didn't put an offer in on a house (although I hope you did as my father lives in Phoenix, so them we might meet one day).

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

I have no idea but I'll take a guess that you aren't going to make an offer on a home in Phoenix.

Bijoux said...

I'm sure it's 6 or 7? But if not, congratulations on both!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Well I'm pretty sure your not going to live in Phoenix which would be a long commute for work. I'm going to say congratulations....OMG!

Maria Zannini said...

I don't know which is false, but I hope you're too young yet to be grandparents. :)

Jo said...

I choose not putting a deposit on a house too. Too quick I think. I am probably way off base too. Glad you had a good weekend though.

SweetMarie said...

I'm guessing 6 first, 7 second. We can't wait until Thursday!! :)

TBR/Committed Thoughts said...

You ain't moving to Phoenix. ☺

Pat Hatt said...

Hmmm, 6 or 7, but 11 may be an exaggeration lol

jack69 said...

I am agreeing with several 6 or 7.
Good entry, neat and I enjoyed going along on the trip. STAY COOL!

jack69 said...

Now had you said a correct one, I would have bet on the Musical Museum!
(smile)

Eileen T said...

This is hard but I'm guessing that you didn't put a deposit on a house.

netablogs said...

I don't think you are moving to Phoenix, so that means congratulations are in order!! :)

Funny in My Mind said...

6, and if you made an offer on a house, congrats

Mary said...

My guess is that you didn't put an offer on a house!
I have a nephew in Phoenix...I got to go for a very short weekend to his wedding: so pretty, and so different than East Tn.! Our national organization's school convention is in Phoenix in July...needless to say, I'm NOT going! :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I believe #8 is a lie. I can't believe Best Western was that generous. Funny that 96 would feel cool.

Birgit said...

You had an eventful weekend. It sounds like you had a lot of fun. I don't think you gained 5 lbs but that is what you thought not an actuality. I shall say you did not buy a home

salemslot9 said...

6 = false

Saleslady371 said...

Hi, Betty:

You are such a stinker! All these look good to me except gaining 5#. Me too btw, while on vacation!!!

I'll say the lie is that you're moving to Phx. Only because you enjoyed getting out of the heat and back up north and originally come from a cooler climate. We'll see, I guess.

Nothing like meeting up with your blog friend, huh? She sounds like a special one; so happy for you!

Blessings,
Mary

Paula Kaye said...

What a wonderful trip. Wish I had been along. I love the hot, DRY weather of Arizona. I think #7 is the lie. If it's not then you just blew me over. I am hoping your are going to be Grandparents!!!! Awesome! Can't wait to hear the rest of the story

Cherie Reich said...

I'm going to guess #7. And I have little doubt that it was at least 111 degrees in Phoenix, maybe even more. I've heard it gets really hot there.

Jerralea said...

Betty, I hope you wouldn't toy with us and put #6 in if it is not true!

Otherwise, I will guess that you did not make an offer on a house.

yaya said...

Sounds like a great weekend....even with one lie! I'm guessing #7...but I'll just have to wait until Thursday!

Intense Guy said...

Wow.

I'd say 6 but nahhh.. that would be too easy. How about 7? Remember Scottsdale ain't Phoenix. :)

Wendy said...

They all sound true. I'm guessing either you found a house or you're glad to be back in Prescott. Now which of these statements is a lie:
A. I'm glad you had a good time. OR
B. I was voted blogger of the year.

Liz A. said...

Sounds like a great weekend. So, was it 111 degrees or 110? One degree isn't much, especially when it's that hot. Yikes.

Barbara In Caneyhead said...

Oh, I don't know. But it does sound like you had a lovely time!

Sharon said...

I'm thinking you're not going to be grandparents. But, you're a crafty woman, Betty, so I really don't know!! Can't wait for the reveal on Thursday!

GOD BLESS!

Mevely317 said...

What a fun, fun post!
Unless your hubby’s received a lucrative transfer, I’m guessing #7 is the lie. I'm thinking even 'lucrative' isn't enough to tempt y'all off the mountain.

PS – Won’t you please pencil me in for a cup of coffee (or wine) the next time you’re down this way?

lyndagrace said...

What a great weekend you had. I can’t imagine what 111 degrees feels like! Perhaps #6 is wishful thinking and a hint to your son and his girlfriend?

joeh said...

I can't wrap my head around 111 degrees.

Lux G. said...

I suck at bluffing games. I'm so gullible I think everything's true.

Stephanie Faris said...

Is #6 the lie? If not, you have some BIG news to share!!!

Linda said...

7? and looking forward to hearing all about it. 6 & 10 made me smile and wonder about another announcement. Too much fun, of course my mind is thinking of all kinds of unsaid possibilities.

Ellie said...

I don't think you gained 5 pounds, so that would be my guess for the lie! I can't wait to find out which one it is! I need to get caught up with you, we have been so busy here! I'm glad you had such a great weekend and I hope your week is just as great!

Chrys Fey said...

This is tough, but since you've been having trouble with houses and such I think #7 is the lie.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I don't know quite which to choose, but I do know which are true from your previous post. But there are several I just didn't know about. I'm anxiously awaiting the answer too.

DMS said...

Hmmm- this is tricky. I think the lie is that you found a house in Phoenix. I can't wait to find out Thursday. :) Sounds like a fun trip!

Kat said...

Well, everyone else is guessing number 6 so I am going with number 11. I don't think you gained 5 pounds over the weekend. :)

Sunni said...

Probably the offer on the house in Phoenix.

I read the Thursday post before I came to this one so I already knew the answer! I was going for #6!
