Pioneer Woman Book Signing

You have probably all heard of Pioneer Woman by now. If you haven't, where have you been?? Especially if you live in Oklahoma! :) Anyway, Ree Drummond is a city girl turned rancher's wife and she lives in Oklahoma with her husband and four children on a huge ranch. They have cows, wild mustangs, the works. She homeschools her kids and is really into photography and cooking. She started a blog a few years ago and has a great cooking section on it. She has really great easy recipes and a while back she began writing a cookbook. Anyway it finally was published and released last week and she has become so popular through her blog that she is now basically a celebrity! She was even on the Bonnie Hunt show a couple weeks ago talking about her cookbook. She started a book signing tour and her first stop was in Tulsa since we are right near where she lives. Well there were probably around 300 people there I would guess. My friends and I did not get there early enough and they were sold out of the books before we even got there! So they added an additional signing this past Friday and of course it was during the day so I had to take the girls with me. Thank goodness my friend Christy went with me to help out and of course to get herself a signed cookbook. :) We waited in line for about an hour and a half and the girls were really good the whole time! I held Bailey the whole time and my arm was KILLING me for the next two or three days! Anyway we finally made it to the front and she AND her husband, who she talks about on the blog all the time and refers to him as "Marlboro Man," both signed the book! I was really glad we went and I am so excited to use the cookbook. It is beautiful and has some GREAT recipes! Get yourself one or ask for one for Christmas!

An hour and a half... Good Lord! I can't think of anyone I'd be willing to wait an hour and a half for. You must be one of her biggest fans!
