Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #64

Happy Fathers' Day to the dads in our lives! Welcome to our 64th edition of Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop :)

In exchange for 5 points in her Chores Chart, I let Princess One prepare the Stuffed French Toast Bake for my hubby today, and it turned out delicious :) (Side note: She's trying to earn 50 chores points so she can attend Victoria Justice's concert in August.) Every Fathers' Day, we cook a recipe that's something different from our usual menu and that's how we decide if a new dish is worth adding in our repertoire of recipes. Tonight, courtesy of Princess One again, we'll have meatball sandwich. Being 10 1/2 and all, Princess One has become so helpful and handy in the house, especially at this time when my mother and I are sick. Of course, it doesn't hurt to earn points for her much-coveted Victoria Justice concert. So, anything special you're doing for the dads in your lives?

Favorite Blog
You clicked, inlinkz tallied. The readers' favorite blog post this past week, being the most viewed post, is Saving Money Part 2: Around the House by A Blossoming Life. For us budget conscious, this is a great post that helps us identify areas where we can save more $$$.

Our Party
To the main course of this post.
For those of you joining us for the first time, we only have 2 easy, simple rules:

1) Link up your creative post - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes, poem, thrift finds, link party, or that informative syndicated post that can make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! And if you like to link more creative posts, go for it! We'd love to see them :) (No links to businesses or giveaways. We have another party for these exclusively every Tuesday called Market Your Biz & Giveaways at 5 pm, PST.)

2) Follow as many blogs as you desire, either via Google Friend Connect or Linky Followers, preferably starting first with the one who linked before you and after you, before branching out, and let them know by leaving a comment. (Following me will be very much appreciated, and I definitely follow back. Just let me know you're following.)

Displaying the party button on your blog, while optional, is very much appreciated :) It will help you remember to come back and link up to the the happiest blog party on the block (ahem!). It will also help others find their way to the party which we all love because the more the merrier :)

Link opens up every Sunday at 5:00 pm, PST and ends Friday at 11:59 pm.

Friends, go ahead and get to know each :) One followed blogger is one gained friend. And please, don't forget to join my Market Your Biz and Giveaways blog party every Tuesday at 5 pm, PST. It's your chance for free promotion of your family-friendly business and giveaways.

Now, let's party like no other!
