100th Post! Come Join The Celebration! *Giveaway*

This contest is now closed.
Yay! I am so so excited to be posting my 100th post! Who knew when I started this adventure that people would actually read what I wrote. Thank you so much followers and friends who have supported me through home pre schooling, inner city camping and read with interest my sometimes random ramblings. Your comments and prayers make me feel very loved. Read on to celebrate!

First what would a celebration be without food?

And not just any food but Chocolate!!

Belly Button Cupcakes
1 Chocolate cake mix
1 &1/2 blocks of cream cheese
1/3 cup of sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup of strong brewed coffee
12 chocolate meltin wafers
Directions: Pre-heat oven to 325F. Prepare cake mix as per directions on the box.
Beat together cream cheese sugar egg and coffee. Spoon cake mix into cupcake papers until 1/2 full. Top with a heaping tablespoon of cream cheese mixture. Place a milk chocolate melting wafer in the center. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!
(These are also great to freeze!)

A little entertainment.
I also want to share with you a really great video that I found over at Super Fun Mama's blog.

A super cool freebie.
Amy at The Finer Things in Life tipped her readers off on this this free amazing 20 page soft cover photo book from Photo Books etc. Now I am tipping you off! You do pay 4.95 shipping but I think that is a smoking good deal!

Lastly what would a party be with out music.
Some good friends of ours make up the band Rosewood's Diary. You can check them out on Facebook or MySpace.
I have been to three of their concerts now and I never leave disappointed. (In fact I was at one just last night). I hope you will enjoy their songs just as much as I do.
They have just released a CD "Tales of Hope and Crescendos". I will be giving away this CD to one blessed Fifth Street Palace reader.

Congrats on your 100th post! Yeah!!
Your question is hard. Favorite song and the singer! Hmmmm. I would have to say Go There With You by Steven Curtis Chapman because it was the song that my husband and I danced to at our wedding and since I am just 100% completely in love with that man, it was the first to come to mind. I have so many that I enjoy for various reasons. I'll have to check out this group!
BIG hugs.

Oh and as you know I do follow along.

Hey congrats!

My ultimate favorite song (as of the moment) is ALMOST LOVER. It's by A fine Frenzy.

It's unbelievably sad and honest and really really amazing.

Congrats on your 100th post. Thanks for entering our giveaway at ABC & 123 and for pointing us your way.
Thanks also for telling me about the photo book deal. I might have to do that for Father's Day, if I can get my act together!
My favorite song (all time is tricky...but this is probably close) is What Do I Know of Holy by Addison Road.

Hi Sarah! Sorry, a certain 5 year old pulled me away from finishing reading. All time fav song? That's tough, I don't even know, right now I'd say "What If His People Prayed" by Casting Crowns.

I follow your blog but you already knew that.

Congrats on your 100th post! Awesome accomplishment!!!

My favorite song and singer... geez. I have no idea. Going to go with a classic. You're the Inspiration by Air Supply. That was Air Supply, right? You're too young to know. :)
