Pioneer Woman

I was able to go to one of Pioneer Woman's recent book signings in Charlotte, NC. What a blast! Ree is even more sweet and lovely than I had imagined, and getting to meet her was a real treat.

Her fans love her, that's for sure. I drove over 2 hours to see her, but many others had gotten there far earlier than I to wait in line, some had even taken the day off of work. And so many people brought her presents! You'll notice my gift to her on the table in the first picture. I made some goodies for her and her punks from my shop: a ring, necklace, earring, and hair pins. I even made Ree a pair of dangly vintage earrings that had pictures of Charlie under glass. I was so busy making and packaging up these delights that I neglected to take pictures of them, and I'm kicking myself for it now.

I was able to get in to see her as soon as we got there, thanks to my VIP tickets. After saying hello and getting my book signed, a friend and I stayed to have dinner in the store's restaurant. 3 hours later, after a leisurely meal and looking around some, we headed out. And Ree was still going strong! I took a peek at her and the large group still patiently waiting, and she was just as kind and bubbly as when I met her hours before.

In case you are unfamiliar with Pioneer Woman, get yourself over to her website and start drooling.

Glad you like it! I have thoroughly enjoyed every recipe of hers I have tried, and her photography tips are very helpful.
