I met HER!

Thursday was a good day.
A VERY good day.
Why?  You ask.
Because I met her, that's why...
Who is her?

Me and THE Pioneer Woman!

That's right!
I got to meet THE PIONEER WOMAN!
Wow.
 
Her cookbook is SO her!  If you read her blog, you'll 
know what I mean by saying that.
The cookbook is her through and through.
It is the most interesting cookbook I have ever
read.  And the first cookbook I have looked through
and laughed out loud.  Great stuff!  I highly
recommend it!  I can't wait to make some of the
recipes in there, especially the Prune Cake.  :)

I got her book at the bookstore she was signing at.
Waited 4 hours, and had her sign mine.

We talked.  We laughed.  I told her where my Oklahoma family lives.
She knew where they lived.
In fact, my grandparents live 30 minutes or so from her ranch!
Awesome!

Earlier that day, I made her a couple camera strap slipcovers.
I mean, come on!  You all know she takes amazing photos!
I hoped that she liked them...

THE Pioneer Woman!

She said she doesn't have anything like them!
She said they were great.
She asked if I have an Etsy shop.

THE Pioneer Woman

Wow.
Truth... Miss Ree Drummond [The Pioneer Woman] 
was fantastic!  Very down to earth, and SO Okie!  
Meaning that she is INCREDIBLY nice!  
I was born in Oklahoma.
I have been there many times.
I have YET to meet a mean Okie.

I loved The Pioneer Woman.
SO worth the 4 hour wait!!

That's amazing! I love her blog!! Though I have to say I've always stayed more on her photography side than on the cooking side... I'll have to check her cookbook now!!
