I'm on a winning streak!

I can't even believe this...honestly, I usually NEVER win anything, but this week I have discovered I won a free blog makeover (thank you Nan!) AND an Honest Scrap Award (thank you Beth!). I am so blessed by all my blogging friends. So, keep your eyes out for my new blog design that is coming soon. And, in keeping with the Honest Scrap Award, I am supposed to write 10 honest things about myself. Here goes:

First of all, thank you to Beth at "I'm Heading Towards My Destiny" for honoring me with this award.
Now, 10 honest things about myself. . .
1. I don't eat any kind of beans (except maybe french style string beans, but only in a
2. I am very afraid of spiders, even if they're small.
3. I still have to count on my fingers sometimes, I'm really bad at math
4. I buy junior mints because my kids & husband don't like them so I get them all to myself.
5. I've always dreamed of being an author but never had the guts to go for it after I was told
at an early age that I'd never be able to make a living at it.
6. Whenever I watch a good, clean love story, if the characters are fighting and just about to
get back together again, my fingertips start to tingle. I have NO idea why?
7. I've had the same best friend since I was 3 yrs. old - she now lives about 10 miles from me
and our children are good friends.
8. I'm actually an outgoing person, trapped in a shy person's body. I have to push myself to
venture out in social situations. This will be remedied when I get free from my insecurities.
9. I have been a Christian all my life, but I seriously committed my whole life to Jesus in
1990, and I haven't looked back since.
10. I'm really a big kid at heart and sometimes feel like I'm not a responsible mom. I LOVE
going to Chuckie Cheese, I love to play video games, I enjoy playing sports in the yard with
my kids, but I NEVER let them win because I'm very competitive, I run through the house
chasing the kids and I play hide & seek with the dog.
Now, I want to share this award with 7 people, but first, I will explain the rules. 1)You must thank the person who gave the award and list their blog and link it. 2) You must share "10 Honest Things" about yourself. 3) You have to present this award to 7 others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you. 4) Last, you must tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.
Here are my 7 people:
