Guess Who I Saw??? (and a busy weekend!)

You can probably guess what my FAVORITE TV show is!!!

My MOST favorite show in the whole wide world is Jon & Kate Plus 8! I faithfully park myself in front of the tv to watch every Monday night. I know....I know.....there are tabloid rumors going around right now about this family, BUT that doesn't make me like their show any less! Let's just say that Kate and I have some very similar qualities (hello--notice the control issues?)

Imagine my delight when I got an email that Kate was going to be in Lakeland doing a book signing tour for her new book (yes, I have BOTH her books)!

Cecil's cousin, Jennifer, and I loaded up Sunday after church and headed down to Lakeland so I could get my "Kate" fix!

Here is me SO VERY EXCITED about meeting and seeing Kate!!

And waiting in line to get my book(s) signed!

Finally, we got to the front of the line and since Kate is under contract to sign hundreds of books per hour, we didn't get to chit chat much, but while she was signing my book, I was able to tell her how much I loved the show and that I watch it faithfully--to which she responded "Thank you so much!" She was friendly, although not too friendly, because she was having to sign so many books...but...both of my books are now signed by THE Kate Gosselin!

And you thought you waited a long time in lines before? Check out the line at the bookstore! We arrived at 3:45 and the signing started at 5pm--we were out of the store by 5:45, but look at these poor people, standing in the heat! Ugh!

Since I watch Jon & Kate so much, I just HAD to drive 2 hours away to have Kate sign my books......what's your favorite TV Show?

On a side note...........
Remember my other post about cleaning up the yard and the house this past weekend? I got everything on my list done and even a few things that weren't! We "rented a Devil" (the football players at WHS had a fundraiser) and he worked at our house in the yard for about 4 hours on Saturday morning! He pressure washed our front and back porch, the garage and the shed, washed my van, helped Cecil do a few things, and cleaned off the boys' trampoline and swingset! He was great help and we got SO MUCH done! Now, if the inside and outside would just stay that way............(sorry-no pictures, but trust me--it's CLEAN!)

The fact that I met Kate Gosselin AND got my house all clean in one weekend? That is sheer delight!

Now...I'm off to heat the boys up some leftovers (I know--I'm a terrible mother) but this mother is SICK, and home with no husband. Yucky nose, sore throat, fever, chills, the whole nine yards.

I am not a big Kate fan, but know you are, so thats really cool that you got to meet her! AND you got your to do list checked off.. you had a great weekend! :)

  3. How exciting that you got to meet Kate AND rent a devil to work around your house in the same weekend. Tell me how I go about renting a devil?!

  4. Oh my gosh, I love Jon & Kate Plus 8!!! I would've been like a kid in a candy shop if I saw her. She's great!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
