So, my boyfriend, family, & I have a healthy fascination with the TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8. 

The first time David & I sat down to watch TV together, we were in Chicago. After 2 or so episodes, he had all the kids names memorized along with a some of their personality traits. 

When I lived in Salt Lake I went to Andrea's house a couple times to watch JK+8. We both enjoyed it and Andrea had cable!

I moved back to Pasadena...  Jon & Kate + 8 episodes were definitely added to the DVR list. Ever Monday night is a new episode. And with every episode a renewed desire to have kids one day. This family has inspired my boyfriend to want to have kids someday as well. (Well, this family along with God nudging him with some other factors too.)

Does most of America have the same healthy fascination we do? They are a pretty likable family, with their bearable and seemingly unbearable quirks. Every Monday night you can say "oh how cute" or "can I have one of those?" or "why is she talking over him again?" or "seriously Maddie?" or "Hannah pooped in Hannah's underwears" and the list goes on.


  1. i love jon and kate plus eight and am seriously upset with tlc talking to the octuplet mom about having a show... i am sorry but the only multiple birth family i want to watch is the gosselins.

  2. or little Alexis saying "hi! hi mommy! hi!" I freakin' LOVE those kids :)

  3. I was not at all interested until I've heard so many people talking about this darn show. Maybe I'll have to see if it's on hulu...

    In other news, that photo in your last hot.

  4. I DVR it every week now and I'm caught up on all the re-runs. I love it! Paul is not as into it as me but he likes it when he watches. I'm trying to convince him that we need to send positive energy out into the universe that we AT LEAST want twins..its not working so well. I give you full credit to my healthy addiction to this show.
