PW is in the house!!!

Posted by Strlady at 10:23 AM
Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to see The Pioneer Woman and her entourage as they passed by Dallas for the Black Heels to Tractor Wheels book tour.

If you don't know who she is... well... you're missing out. She is the queen of blogging in my book. She blogs about her life as a ranchers wife, about homeschooling her 4 kids, about cooking for Marlboro Man (she calls her hubby that), and about Photography. She doesn't presume to know everything but shares what she has learned along the way. If you subscribe to her site for anything, do it for the cooking and the photography. You will find yourself hooked on her crazy personality and her talents in both of these areas.

Her kids were there. It was a bit surreal to see these kids who you feel you actually know because you have seen them as they grow up through her eyes. You have gone to their soccer games and watched them freak out when their horse galloped away, you watched them ride in their first rodeo, and rope their first calf. Surreal.

and Mr. MM himself was there. He was minding his own business when someone must have approached him to sign the Black Heels book and before he knew it, there was a line to get his siggy on the book and photo ops. He was such a trooper!!

Yes... I had no pity for him and was there to harass him too.
LOL! He is just such a nice guy!
He is very shy but if you mention anything ranch related, he will chat you up.

You see that Green bracelet? It says that I was among the 500s. By the end of the evening they had given out over 600 bracelets to identify the order in which you would get your books signed. We were the Cinderella crowd. We approached Ree for the signing at midnight. I was determined to get my whole 60 seconds with her, so we chatted a bit. LOL! Thanks to my sister, I have a whole series of pics of the conversation. I was a bit animated.

It was definitely an experience. If you have a chance to meet her, don't hesitate.
Just make sure you get there EARLY and bring proper entertainment. It could be a long wait.

Jealous! I'd love to see her in person sometime, if only to hear her voice. Y'know how you always assign certain voices to bloggers you read often? I'd be curious to see if her voice actually matches up with the voice in my head. GREAT pictures!

I love her blog too and she writes with such a sense of humor. Lucky you!
