I love her too! When she came to Denver I couldn't get the night off of work. I was so bummed. I love the cookbook. I'm going to try something out of it this week.
OMG! How did I miss that?! <img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/frown.gif'> That's what I get for being too busy to read blogs this past month!
I hadn't heard about her coming to Austi. How fun!
OH I'm so jealous!!! She's not coming to Ca. <img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/frown.gif'>
Great pics! You two are so lovely! Glad you had a good time.
Can't wait to get my book!
Project - Pioneer Woman Signs Books in Austin, TX
posted 12/04/09 at 03:38 PM
Last night I attended a book signing at Book People in Austin, TX. But, this wasn't just any signing, nope, it was a book signing by none other than Ree Drummond aka Pioneer Woman! And yes, she is as down-to-earth, funny, humble and gracious as one would assume after reading her blog posts. She was accompanied by her hubby (aka Marlboro Man) and her kids, as well as some local family members including her sister, Betsy, whom I briefly spoke with after lending her a pen so she could sign someone's book. Yup, the whole family was in on the signing!
And, as if it wasn't enough to get to hear Ree answer questions and share tidbits about her life, as well as get our books signed, each person who waited in the long line to get their book signed received a Pioneer Woman t-shirt! How cool is that? How she stayed so up and social through hours of signing, chatting and photo opps is beyond me…I was worn out just watching it all unfold.
Thanks Ree for making Austin a stop on your 2009 book tour - we had a great time!
