You're Gonna Love It - Week 18

The heatwave here has finally
We have been able to go to bed the
past few nights with the windows open!
It may not last as, rumor has it
the 90's will be back later in the week.
I'll take the good sleeping weather for as long as I can!

In even bigger, and more interesting
than the weather,
on August 22, 2011 I 
published my very first blog post!
As promised, tomorrow,
Wednesday August 22, 2012,
I will be hosting a BIG

There are wonderful prizes donated by 
some of my favorite people!
So be sure to come back tomorrow and
enter one, two, three, FOUR 

I am in the celebrating mood
so, let's get this party started!!

Last weeks most viewed post
was Diann from
I have loved Dian's blog since before I started blogging.
She never ceases to teach me new things.
Last week she shared her Slop Basin 
and what a slop basin is used for.
I had no idea!
Go, go now and learn from Diann!

Grab an I've been featured button Diann!
Now let's all grab a glass of 
champagne and get to partying!

Feel free to link up anything you created, baked, mashed,
 decorated, wrote, photographed, discovered etc.!
Anything you are just so proud of
you must share it with others!
As always, I don't require that you
be a follower
in order to link up.

 I want you to follow
Kathe With An E
because you want to.
Not because it is required.
Ohh and you can now follow me
on Facebook (Kathe With An E) 
and Twitter (@kathewithane123)!
I have been featuring some of my
favorite posts on Facebook too!

(Of course if you do decide to follow,
either with GFC or the Linky Followers,
you will be able to see on your dashboard
  exactly when the party starts each week
and, let's be honest,
you will make me smile and
I love to smile!)

As always,  I will ask that you think
about disabling your word verification too.

It makes it difficult to leave a

comment and some
bloggers, when they see 
you have it, won't bother to leave a comment.
Don't know if your blog requires word verification 
or how to remove  it?
 My blog buddy Shannon over at
wrote this great post on
One more request!
I get so many
lovely comments from you all
that I can't reply to because
you are a no-reply comment blogger!
That makes me sad because, no matter
how busy life gets, I ALWAYS reply
to every single comment you leave. 
You may not even know you have it turned on!
When Blogger updated their format
earlier this year it could have been turned on
without you even being aware of it!
Amanda at City Girl Gone Coastal
explains how to turn off your
No-Reply Comment

I would also love it if you would link back
in some way
so that others come and party with us. 
 Either grab the party button
or add my blog link
to your post or on your
 blog party page.
But again, it's not required. 

 There is only one real rule:
  I do ask that you
please DO NOT link up
  Giveaways, anything for sale,or Etsy shops.
Save those for the party on the first Tuesday each month. 

Link to your specific post URL, not your main blog URL.
And don't forget to come back and mingle
with the other linkers!
Let them know you met them at
the party here.
That's it!

Let the celebrating begin!


  1. Pop it open! I am here with bells on-- let's Celebrate! WOW is there so much to celebrate! Awesome times right here..so happy to be here Kathe!

  2. Woo Hoo! I will for sure be back tomorrow! Thanks for hosting!

  3. Kathe you put up some greats stats your first year blogging! Congrats!

  4. OK, Kathe, I am no longer a "no reply blogger." It sounds so unfriendly! Thanks for the link to fix it! I am still in shock that you have only been blogging for a year. If there was such a thing as blogging college, I would say you graduated with honors! Now, it's time to celebrate! Looking forward to another year of Kathe with an E!!!

  5. thanks so much for hosting have a lovely week

  6. Thanks for hosting Kathe! And happy anniversary on you 1 year of blogging. I've only been bloggin for a couple of months. But Bloggs like yours are ones that encouraged me!


  7. I love to join, yet, another great party at You're Gonna Love It. You are a very generous and sweet lady and I would NEVER NOT thank you for the party, or comment when you do with me and that is sad, as I do get very sad when a hostess does not acknowledge my link, because I somehow feel not welcomed, or a comment is never reciprocated, but also, I say, maybe she didn't have time and it shouldn't bother me, it should ONLY bother me if I DIDN'T DO IT!! I always thought ALL bloggers are into this together, having fun and making wonderful friends. So thank you for been such a wonderful hostess, I do appreciate it very much! Enjoy your week.

  8. Hi Kathe,
    I too really love Diann's blog. Lots of Thrifty advice! Thanks for hosting.

  9. Hello Kathe.
    Congratulations on your 1st blogoversary! I'll definitely be back to celebrate. I'm a year and a half into my blogging career (lol).
