Girl’s Day with Kate Gosselin

Weekend before last, I went with two of my girlfriends to a book signing for Kate Gosselin of Jon & Kate plus 8. I just love that show. She was so gorgeous in person! We had a blast! We went to the book signing and then went shopping and went to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. Here are a few of the pics.

Me getting my book signed and talking to Kate briefly. She was in a time crunch, so no personalized signings or posed pictures. However, they did let you stand over to the side after and take as many of her as you wanted, which was nice.

Holding up our books after the signing. I was super impressed with how smooth the process went. Kudos to Book-A-Million! Oh and Kate was super nice by the way!

I don’t know if you can really tell by this picture, but her arms were super toned! She must have a personal trainer!!

It might be a little hard to see, but check out those shoes!! We saw them later in the day at the mall, and we’ll just say those were quite the splurge.

  1. I love the show and want to like her, but was disappointed to hear that she wasn’t very nice at previous appearances. So I’m glad to hear that you had a good experience! Have you made it through the book? How is it?

    How cool! BTW – her arms are toned from lifting all those kiddos. My arms look awesome from carrying around a 25lb child! Wish I could say the same for the rest of me… LOL!

    I read her “8 Little Faces” book and it was pretty cute. Looks like you all had a great time!

  4. I’ve never posted here, but I want to tell you first that I love your blog! She was in Houston a couple of months ago and a friend and I went to a Girl’s Night Out that was sponsered by a local Christian radio station. It started at 7 pm, and she signed books after that…which was around 10 pm. we stood in line because we didn’t think there would be another opportunity to “meet” her. It was a bit crazy and she wouldn’t ‘pose’ for pictures. We had to hand our camera’s off to someone else. Needless to say I got a blurry picture. It was late and I know she was ready for the evening to be over so she was kind of rushing people. I still really like her and the show. And she was beautiful in person!

    Hey Stephanie! You might remember me from the old days of tennis:-) I came across your blog from Kristen's and I'll admit it- I've even tried one of your recipes (I love to bake too!!). I'm glad to see you guys are doing well!
    By-the-way, I saw on a magazine a picture of Jon (from Jon &Kate) with another woman leaving a bar. The story talked about how things weren't going very well for the couple:-( How sad!

    How fun! She does look amazing, especially for having 8 kiddos!
