I met Ree Drummond!!!!!!

My sister Melanie and I got up this morning and drove 45 minutes to Barnes and Noble so I could meet Ree Drummond!!!! I love her Blog The Pioneer Woman . I have followed her blog for several years. I will say that her Blog gave me something to read each day when I was sitting with Junior and Mom when they were sick. I honestly love reading her recipes, reading about the hard work they do on their ranch, about the fun she has with her kids as she homeschools them, and about her adorable Bassett Hound Charlie!!
Ok.. time for some pictures... they are out of order.. but it was a fun day!!
We waited over 6 hours.. It was so worth it!
Melanie and I were sitting in the window... and this guy and his wife came up to the window outside.. and he was joking around he was going to take our picture.. So I took his!!! I am telling you we met so many nice people today.
Here she is ... Ree Drummond.. The Pioneer Woman!!!!
Kind, Gracious, Friendly, Funny!!! Very, Very nice lady..
This gentleman was known as "The Handler". He turned out to be from Mansfield Ohio. He was so nice. Very friendly. He kept the line moving. Helped us get our books all ready. He was Miss Ree's driver, security, book handler, line mover.. just did it all.
Miss Ree signed my book!!!! I enjoyed her new Novel.. Loved reading about how she met the Marlboro Man and about her life on the Ranch.. Oh and her wedding with 600 guests~! She is used to large crowds.. Good things since there were around 1000 people there today.
Here is her Novel. I love her cover art..
She signed my cookbook also, she was signing them on a different page but I requested she sign this page. This cookbook was a gift to me from my Brother, Sister In Law and niece.. My Sister in Law had wrote in the book to me.. so I had her sign under it.. She was very gracious and thought it was very sweet that I had received the book as a gift!
Also love the Art work on the cookbook!
Miss Ree!!!
6 hours later... Finally!!!!
See she is just so nice!!! I was a little upset with myself.. the time went so fast that I didn't get to tell her that it is on my Bucket List to get to go to the Ranch.. She gives awesome trips to the Ranch away on her blog.. Someday maybe I will win!!! ... Ok if not the trip I want one of the Pioneer Woman Kitchen Aid Mixers.. Hey a gal can dream.
The entire day was so much fun! I have to say I would do it again... maybe not tomorrow but I would definitely take the chance to meet her once again. Great fun. Nice people, good day spent with my sister.
Thanks Ree Drummond..
