You're Gonna Love It - Week 32

We made it through Thanksgiving
and are now full on into
the Christmas season!
My very favorite time of the year!

Did you go out and help the
economy and hit the 
Black Friday sales or,
are you more of a Cyber Monday shopper?

Mr. B & I chose to stay home,
sleep in and get our Christmas
decorations up.
{These are just of half of my Christmas decorations bins!}

I am still sneezing up glitter I swear!

Before we get started, 
I am soooo excited to let you know about
a holiday blog hop I am co-hosting with some
of my very favorite blog gals!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you look!

We want to celebrate the season and share Christmas cheer and are hosting a four week Christmas link party! 
 Four blogs are joining together to share your holiday creations. 
Each week we will host a theme party to feature,
desserts & holiday food, 
ornaments & holiday decor, 
mantels & tablescapes,
and trees and wreaths. 
The host of each week will also share a fun project with you.
Life on Lakeshore Drive
Nov. 28th  Life on Lakeshore Drive will host ornaments & decor.
Dec. 5th    Kathe With An E (that's me!) will host mantels & tablescapes.
Dec. 12th  House Honeys will host trees & wreaths
Dec. 19th  One More Time Events will host desserts & holiday food
**There will also be a Grand Prize giveaway from 
for those who share at all 4 parties!**  
This pan retails for $64.99!

So, mark your calendars!
We want to see you at each party!

So, now that we've all awoken from
our turkey induced coma,
how about we party?

The most viewed post
from last week was
from ARod at 
ARod shared her
ARod created this gorgeous look for
about $5.00!
How thrifty is she??
Pretty danged thrifty in my book!
Grab an I've been featured button ARod!
You've earned it!

Now, on to this week's party!

Feel free to link up anything you have created.
Recipes, decor, crafts, written or photographed.
Anything you are so proud of
you just gotta share it with others.
I will reserve the option of deleting 
any post that I do not feel fits the 
theme of my blog.
Please limit your link ups to
just 2 or 3.

I also like to spotlight
some of my favorites on my
Facebook page so,
be sure to follow me over there too! 

It would be nice 
if you'd check and
make sure you are not a 
no-reply commenter.
I try to respond to every email and comment 
you leave to me but, if you are a
no-reply commenter,
I can't and that makes me sad.

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.

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.
I only have one rule:
I ask that you please 
DO NOT link up
giveaways, Etsy shops or anything for sale.
Save those for the first Tuesday of each month
(next week!)
Anything Goes!

Just remember,
this is a party so mingle
around and visit some of the other
party attendees.

  2. I helped the economy a bit on Friday but only on line- I don't do the stores that day! I also went out on Saturday and bought locally and today I've pumped a few dollars into the economy again! I am pretty much done with my decorating. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with a small ton of plastic tubs with Christmas goodies!
    It's the only way to do it!!
