I am only going to tag 5 right now.

4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
Again, thanks so much for tagging me! I love these kinds of things! :D
And now for the slightly sad / slightly happy part! I am going to be gone for about three weeks. You see, these next few weeks are going to be full of mission trips, church camps, etc, etc... I will also have no Internet access. :/ Not that that is really a bad thing, but it does cause a few problems when trying to update a blog. So, anyway, please be praying for my youth group and I as we go and do a mission trip and such. Thanks so much everyone! :)

Yep! This is it! My 100th post... Wow... You know, it's kinda like a birthday. I expect things to feel, I dunno... different, I guess. But do they? No. Oh well! I'm gonna have fun celebrating anyway! :P

As some of you know, I am having a BLOG PARTY for my 100th post! I am going to be giving away a necklace (pictured below :) ), and if we can get 50 people to participate I will giveaway two pairs of earrings to another person. There will be questions to answer (they are below) and then all you have to do to make sure that you are entered into the drawing is link up to the post with the questions!!


There is the necklace. Sorry for the quality in the picture. My digicam was on the fritz. :/
You do have to answer the questions on your blog for your entry to count. Umm... Let's see... What am I forgetting? OH! Here are the Blog Party buttons for you to put on your blog sidebars if you want to:

Playing For Him Blog Party

Playing For Him Blog Party

I would like to thank Amanda @ for making these buttons for me! Aren't they AWESOME?!?!?! You can pick which ever one you want to put on your blog.

By the way, you probably noticed that on the buttons this shindig is supposed to start tomorrow. How ever, I had already posted the question in my previous post for people to go ahead and answer the questions if they wanted too. I think a few people have done that, so I figured what would it hurt if I started things up a bit early? ;)

Ok! I think that is pretty much everything, so look at my last post to get the questions for the blog party (which you probably find very random! Be warned! :P ) and have fun!!!!!
