    I can see already that this going to be a source of many giggles for me! I’m already laughing my head off. So far everyone has some right answers and some wrong answers. Really the truth about our Lulu (her nickname) is sometimes more interesting the what we could make up.

    2, 7, 8, 12, 13,14 I’m not playing to win a prize I just wanted to see how well I could guess! :)

  4. meredith reilly

    this is too funny! LOVE the pictures! Here goes:#7, #9,#12, #2 and #4

  5. Carolyn Cleaves

    Love the photos. They’re so flattering. (rolls eyes) Okay. I think the following are NOT true:2,3,8,11,13. Maybe #10. Okay. I can’t cheat. So I’m staying with what I say .. 2,3,8,11,13.

  6. Kayla

    Here is a new hint: 2 people have gotten 4 out of 5 right…what is missing seems too strange to be true but it is true.

  7. Deborah

    Don’t know if these are anywhere correct. I search and search but could not find everythng listed. So here goes.


  8. Ruth

    How funny! I had a really hard time at choosing the correct incorrect answers. Laura sounds like one interesting lady (and she looks smoking hot in her mug shot, BTW)!

    3,8, 12, 13, 14,

  9. Melanie

    What a great way to break up my tax prep today. How about:3681113are false

  10. Dukette

    Well, I laughed, then I thought “go weird” … so I’m going with:3891113I love the products, so I hope the prizes are PRODUCTS (just don’t give me ones with SLS – my allergies, or scents, or …)! *sigh*

    I should be making more labels…but..I had to try. :)

    That was fun – thank you!

  12. Carolyn Cleaves

    Wow! I get to guess again. Actually, I just wanted to come back and see Laura’s flattering photos. Here goes, #3, how can you wear mismatched socks EVERY DAY?; #8, she works too hard to take care of 12 cats; #11, she’s a woman …. how can she have an “identical” twin brother. #13, I know an Olympic coach. He lives and breathes his sport; #15, How can you be married 3 years today EVERY DAY? Hmmm? Does that make sense?

  13. Kayla

    Carolyn – Ok ok I fixed the “married 3 years as of today” because I meant it as 3 years as of the day that I posted it on June 10th. Even if that was a “false” there still remains another actual false answer. Otherwise your logic looks really good.

  14. Brooke LaFevre

    Ohh, I think I spotted a “hidden” clue….


    Back to soap making.

  15. Kayla Fioravanti

    Ok we have two people who have correctly guessed the five answers! Three more can win – next three to figure out which two entries are correct will be among the winners!

  16. Jennie

    Ok I don’t even know this person or work for the company, but this was posted to facebook and I love to win things ;-) so I thought I’d give it a try


  17. Kayla Fioravanti

    Thank you all for playing. There were five winners: Nysa, Elaine, Jennie, Rebecca and Brooke. I had so much fun with this game. Hope you enjoyed it too.
