The Pioneer Woman and I...we're tight

Ok, not really, but I did get to meet her (insert gagging noises from the husband)!

My mom and her friends; Lyn (read her account), Luell, Sue and I went to the booksigning of The Pioneer Woman! It was such a blast! She's as charming, real and funny in person as she is on her website. We got there early, which was a good thing, because it got packed FAST! It was fun to make friends with the people around us and discuss our favorites recipes in Ree's book.
Speaking of her book...The Pioneer Woman Cooks is a fantastic cookbook!  It has beautiful pictures (she is an amazing photographer) and lots funny tidbits and insights into her life on the ranch!

Sue, Lyn and Mom (waiting for the fun to begin)

Mom and Luell (more waiting)

Ree and Mom
There were well over 400 people there.  Our ticket numbers were in the 230's.  It tooks us about 3 hours of waiting to finally get up and have her sign our books (I can't imagine how tired she was or how much longer she stayed after we left). 

Our group with Ree!

Ree and Luell

Cute, cute Nan (mother-in-law) and Alex (daughter) Drummond.  They quietly hung out in the back of the store waiting for Ree to finish.  We went back and talked to them for a little while.  They loved Oregon and wanted so badly to spend some time at the coast.  Lyn brought a few issues of Oregon Coast Magazine for them to take on the plane.  Nan and Ree were thrilled!

Ree doing her Ethel Merman impression in "There's no business like show business."  She is so hilarious!  She really did sound JUST like her!

We ended the evening with a late meal at Baja Fresh (so yummy)!  It was such a fun time ladies!  What are we doing next?? 
Love you all!
