Where in the world has Kate Gosselin been lately?

Not that I've made a habit of keeping track of her, but there she was this weekend at the Kentucky Derby—without the kids.

In other words, the little ones spent most of Mother's Day Weekend back home with their dad Jon.

Gosselin was tweeting away throughout the festivities, reporting on how she was going from one event to another.

She worried about what she was wearing, specifically a signature Derby hat that was "big and feathery."

Ms. Gosselin also managed to find time to do some swagging at the Style Icon Luxury Gifting Suite at the Galt House. Among the other goodies she picked up were a white gold and diamond star pendant from Connor Custom Jewelry, sunglasses and a handbag from George Gina and Lucy, an invitation to get custom-blended teas from the Teaologist and the big feathery hat she was so concerned about.

We are happy to see it wasn't all about freebies for Kate. She did bid on an Elvis Presley print and a Pittsburgh Steelers signed helmet during a silent auction benefiting the March of Dimes.

"She was wearing a formfitting, curve-hugging pink dress with a black and pink hat with flowers," an eyewitness reports of Gosselin's swag suite visit. "Her legs looked amazing!"

In the end, Gosselin made it home for Mother's Day. She tweeted that she picked up Chinese food for dinner because it was one of the few nights she feels she doesn't have to do the cooking.
