Hello Gosselin fans, Happy Presidents Day! This kids are off this week for Winter Recess and I'm already ready to ship their behinds back to an empty school. Its hard when they are so used to being active all day, be home wanting to do something every second. And for those that work, even part time, I feel your pain as you try to juggle both. Lets lean on each other and pray we make it though the week!
Big Brood Spawns Big Ratings
Well regardless of the episodes being anti-climatic after seeing the new house, Jon & Kate Plus 8 still does great for its demographic. In its fourth season, is the still highest-rated show on TLC. Its Jan. 26 episode drew 1.6 million women between the ages of 18 and 49, a group advertisers particularly covet. Check out The New York Times article HERE.
Proctor & Gamble Banks on Kate and Her LOVE Of Coupon Clipping
Even with Kate's flair for the dramatic, P&G hires Kate for another coupon-clipping campaign for this month. With the "Smarter Savings, Better Brands" slogan, P&G again features budgeting tips from Kate, who you KNOW isn't playing around when it comes to saving money, just ask Jon (lol).

Home Sweet Home
For those of you that have not watched the episode yet, please feel free to skip over this! I actually was really excited and looking forward to this episode. Because just like Kate, I'm more of an indoors girl! That means I also get super excited when shiny new things come into my home. And while I may not be Kate Gosselin, I can be genuinely happy for the family that they get super gorgeous Whirlpool Duets washers & dryers and not be a jealous troll about it. I know all of you are watching tonight people, don't try to hide it! Kate got some hot new stuff for their new home, and I was excited to watch the kids paint and have a fun time while Kate hyperventilates. Tonight, she actually handled it much better than I thought she would. Collin realized he found his true calling (the man needs to come to my house), Hannah and Alexis made me laugh and realize that all these kids have grown up so much in the past 2 seasons its crazy. And while this was also filmed while the twins were in school, have no fear, the puppies are almost here! And we basically got to see the commercial for the two not-so small puppies that look like they will be the size of buses sooner than you know it.
Jon & Kate have now made me want go out and buy Clorox stain remover! Yes the subliminal advertising works people! This show makes me want to go out and buy all their stuff. Once the kids got to enjoy painting, we got to see them color too. (After a really tender moment of Jon washing the kids faces). Jon did a great job letting all the kids know they did a great job! These again are the mundane parts of the show that people love to watch. I enjoyed watching Kate shop and insist on a particular tile, only for Jon to pick out the correct color for the floor. We got to see Kate get frustrated and interrupt Jon again (cue 150+ snarking Kate comments) but overall this episode was drama free. Note to self...another show where Kate kisses and plays with her boys? How could that be?? Just the way we like it!
My favorite quotes:
Alexis: I can have braids, be beautiful and paint at the same time
Hannah: Aaaden you roof does not look pretty!
Aaden (when he and Hannah were playing outside) Yes! Lets go back and buy some eggs!
