ic Kathe With an E: You're Gonna Love It Tuesday - Week 9

You're Gonna Love It Tuesday - Week 9

Okay, I admit,
I'm a terrible host.
I was not able to make it
to each of the links last week.
It's not from lack of caring.
I was busy at my real job last week
and the days just got away from me.
Plus, Father's Day on Sunday
kind of threw me a bit.
It now joins Mother's Day
as a bittersweet day for me.
It was my first Father's Day since my
dad passed away in February.
Mr. B and I don't share any children together
but, he is a loving provider to me
and to Max.

Max & I tried our very best to 
make the day extra special!!
Max really really loves his daddeh sooo much!

I seriously get soooo many great ideas,
recipes and inspiration
from all of you!  
I hereby promise that this week
I will visit, and comment, on
every link!
Pinky swear!!
Will you do the same??

Now, let's get this week's party started!!! 

The most viewed link
was, for the second week in a row,
Robin from 
with her post explaining 
how apothecary jars are 
NOT created equal.
I have a few AJ's, as we collectors call them,
so it's good to know what to look for!

  This week the posts will again be
sorted so the the last post is first.
This way you all get to be first for at least a bit
and, hopefully, get even more views!
Let me know if you don't care for this and
we will go back to the normal sorting
next week.

Please 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!

I am still not going to 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!

(Of course if you do decide to follow,
either with GFC or the newer Linky Followers,
you will be able to see on your dashboard just
when the party has begun each week
you will put a big smile on my face 

and I do love to smile!)


I will keep requesting that you think
about disabling
your word verfication 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.
As this party continues to grow,
as I hope it does,
I am, at some point, 
going to have to pass on leaving you a comment
 if I see you have word verification enabled.
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. 
Only one real rule
  I do ask that you
please DO NOT link up
 anything for sale, Giveaways or etsy shops.

 On the first Tuesday of each month,
beginning with Tuesday's party on July 3,
the party will be
That means you can link up your regular posts, as always
you can also link up your giveaways,
your Etsy shops, your Ebay stores,
and your own link parties!
 Anything and everything!
All I ask is that you keep it clean and
family friendly.
I will reserve the option of deleting 
any post that I do not feel fits the 
theme of my blog.

Please Link to your specific post URL not your main blog URL 
(no limit on the number of linkies, so add as many as you like!)
And, let's all be nice partiers and visit
and mingle with each other this week!

Let the fun begin!
(Psst...I'll let you in on a little secret!
The party starts around 6ish pm Mountain
on Monday
and ends around midnightish Mountain on
But hey, you didn't hear
it from me (wink))


  1. Kathe, I hate when my real job interferes with my blog too!

  2. Yeah, like Carlene said, LOL!

    Kathy, your little Max is so precious! Thanks for hosting, your party is always fun with so many different link-ups.

  3. Thank you Kathe for hosting the party..

  4. Yikes, where did that "y" come from!
    I'm sorry Kathe. Pam

    1. Lol Pam! I get that all the time. No worries :-)

  5. Love the feature....
    Thanks for hosting. My post is about a picnic for Dads but I do have a giveaway going and I have the button at the bottom of the post. Hope this is ok..if not, please feel free to delete my entry. I know you don't allow giveaways in your party..just wanted to give you heads up on mine.

    1. As long as it's not the main subject of your post I am okay with it BJ :-)

  6. Kathe, I love Max ! Our Jack Russel, Demon, (together with our Pekingese) was poisoned early April and although we have other dogs who we love very much, it just wasn't the same as the absolute lively Jack Russel. Two weeks ago we bought a JR puppy and he is already taking over ! Thanks for hosting again this week and enjoy the rest of the week.

  7. Thank you for hosting:) Even with human children we still have our other children (even a goose with us:). Yes, we celebrate Father's Day with them. My son and his girlfriend have three puppies between them and they even give each other gifts for Mother's Day or Father's day from their pups, What Fun! Not to worry about leaving comments on everyone, we are human not machines so its not always going to happen, Lol. Have a great week!

  8. Thanks for hosting, Kathe.
    Have a lovely day!

  9. Hi Kathe, over from B.J's. Been looking for a Tuesday blog party to link up with. I usually post my Doing my own Thing on Tuesday Such as crochet, paintings or whatever I may be working on. So glad I found you. Sound like a fun place. Anything BJ likes has got to be good. She is some fine lady.

  10. Kathe
    Thank you for hosting this wonderful party.

  11. Kathe you do a great job with visiting. It's hard when real life gets in the way...lol. I'll be back later to join in the party! One of my new favorites! Hugs, Linda

  12. dear Kathe you're a great host and your parties are just great. it doesnt really matter if you visit all links or not.
    i dont have kids too but i do have two lovely dogs and 5 newborn puppies, so my mr is not only a dad but a grandfather as well!!hehehe...i always thought that pets are like children and part of the family..not just toys like some people treat them.
    have a lovely week!!!

  13. Hi Kathe - thanks for hosting again :) I'm glad you and Max made it a great Father's Day for your special man! Have a great week!

  14. Hi Kathe,

    I know how it is to sometimes not comment on every party link... some weeks are just busier than others. What will we do if we ever get more than 100 links?!

    Thanks for hosting this fun party!

    xoxo Bunny Jean

  15. Kathe I agree with the others, you are a most gracious host to make it a point to visit all the blogs! Let's face it, sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day to do all the have-tos and include all the want-tos :) I love to party here and thank you for hosting!! I'm also sending some special hugs your way; Sunday could not have been easy for you. How cute to celebrate with Max! Dan and I don't have children together either (although we both have children from previous marriages.) but our furbabies ARE the (well-behaved) children Dan and I have together - LOL :)

  16. Kathe, thanks so much for the invite! I'm glad to be your newest follower :)
