New BFF-Pioneer Woman

 I went and stood in line to have my cookbooks signed like many others.  I got there early enough with my friend Sarah that it only took us 2 hours and 15 min.   When I got to the front of the line, Ree actually recognized me.  I told her I had met her at the Range Round up in Aug. and she remembered me.  I was so excited.  Our mothers also share the same birthday of Halloween, so she shared with me she hadn’t gotten her mother anything for her birthday.  I suggested a cookbook, that’s what I got my mom.  She wrote Happy Birthday to my mom in her book.

She also shared with me her concern about sweat rings, so she wasn’t going to be raising her arms for any pictures.

 I  took extra batteries along in case my camera went dead.  I wanted to avoid the horrible incident at the Range Round up where my batteries did die before I met Ree and I couldn’t find any over priced ones to buy.  My camera was flashing the battery symbol by the time I was done taking pictures that night.

 

I couldn’t post about this earlier because I had to post about Bill’s big reveal, Halloween and then the soccer game.

These are Ree’s boys checking out the ladder at the bookstore.

 

The book signing started at 6:30 pm.  I was in line starting at 5:00 pm.  I heard that Ree signed books until after midnight.  I don’t think I could have made it that long.  Most nights I’m in bed before 10:00 pm.

    You were there too! Man, I didn’t see you there and I looked for people I would know in line, since I was in the back of the line.

    When I saw on Lindsy’s blog that she was there, I thought for sure you had to be, too. Glad you got to see your BFF again; I’m sure you’ve missed her.

    I must admit that you are the reason that I’m a bit “hooked” on pioneer woman myself. After your first post about meeting her at the rodeo, I just had to check out her blog and see what I was missing. And boy was I missing something. She is so stinkin’ funny. And I love her recipes. I’ve tried several.
    Glad you got to meet her in person–even twice now! I think I’m putting her cookbook on my christmas list this year!

    And I love it that her boys were all over the ladder!
