Reality not my reality

I've been addicted to Jon and Kate plus 8 . I can't even tell you how much I've watched lately. I'm usually not the reality tv type of person, but this summer, I became the reality tv junkie. I think my fascination with their family is how they do it with 8 kids. So impossible for me to put myself in their shoes. Firstly, no kids. Secondly, I was an only child. If you're not familiar with the show, it's a family of 10: the mom and dad, plus a set of twins and a set of sextuplets. The twins are 7 and the sextuplets are 4.

This is me when I was 7:
What's up with that hoe-down outfit? I donno, but I loved it. I remember watching the tv variety show "Hee Haw" all the time. Maybe that's why I loved this outfit so much.

I can't wait for the regular fall tv schedule to start. Maybe I'll stop watching all this reality tv. What shows are you looking forward to? I heard about "Fringe" and I recorded it, but haven't watched yet. Aside from that, just looking forward to my old standbys: Grey's, Heroes, Lost, Pushing Daisies, Ghost Whisperer, etc. Since I fast forward through commercials, I don't even know what new shows are coming out. I need any recommendations you'd like to share.

Heehee, LOVE the outfit. My daughter and I love John and Kate plus 8. We also watch Little people, big world on that channel. As far as the rest, I'm a big Bravo show person. Love Project runway and Top Chef. Oh and pushing daisys, love it!

I've never seen J&K+8, but if you recommend it, it must be good. I don't watch much TV, most of it annoys me, specially the stupid ads. I see they have taken to showing the same ad 2 or 3 times in sucession now, what do they think we are, morons with no brains? Don't answer that. I just refuse to watch.
Love your outfit!

I actually had overalls with the Hee Haw donkey all over them. Man, I loved those.

I live for the fall season. It's so sad, but I can't help myself. Bless the DVR.

I'm so glad people appreciate the hillbilly spirit! I can say that being a real live Tennessee hillbilly.

The only thing we're watching lately it seems is the food network. Do you think that might explain the 8 or 9 pounds that have crept back on?

Darling picture.
The Office is all I'm planning to DVR this week. Seems like there was something else, but can't think of it so it must not be important.
