Pioneer Woman????

Ok, isn't it funny sometimes how you can NEVER hear of something and then within 15 minutes hear of it 2 or 3 times?

That's my case today, with Pioneer Woman.

So I was wishing Shylo a happy birthday when I saw some new pics of Miss Karli and was perusing then saw a "Pioneer Woman" book signing. I thought, hum, wonder what that is. Must be good if someone's willing to wait HOURS in a line to have the author sign the book.

Oh well, I went along with my business.

To then be reading Jocelyn's latest blog and she had a hyperlink to Pioneer Woman's website. Ok -- now it's getting too freaky. I HAD to check it out.

and now I've spent the best part of an hour engulfed in her Marlboro Man story and how she's gone from city slicker to ranchhand, all be cause of Marlboro Man. I've made it through about 10 of her stories and am going to have to start the "From High Heels to Tractor Wheels" bit. There's about 30 entries to that! It's REEEEEEEALLY good! A true to life love story.

check it out:

It's an addicting, worth-while, love story. Being a country girl gone to the city, I can see how she was smitten with a cowboy from the second she laid eyes on him!!!!

AND....the book signing I think was for her cookbook....which hold some pretty tasty-looking recipes.

So thanks ladies, for my newfound addiction!

I love PW! I went to her cookbook signing a week before I had Eli, and since I was already dilated to a 4 at the time, I seriously worried that I would go into labor at the book store!

Her "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" is definitely a must-read. She's turning it into a real book, and the movie rights have already been sold... with Reese Witherspoon as the star!

And yes, her recipes are amazing!! Her cinnamon rolls and mushrooms (two different dishes... haha... not togehter) are to die for!

Plus, I love her photography (she's the main reason I got a nice camera) and her sense of decorating. If you get a chance, check out her posts about the kitchen in the lodge... beautiful!
