Pioneer Woman...Star Struck!

Oh yes...
I have met...
talked to...
and become bff's
with THE Pioneer Woman!
At least I like to think so.

Here is how it went down...

My Aunt Jeanne and Cousin Anna
(you have to look at her twin boys...have.to!)...
well, they drove out from Nebraska for the book signing of
Ree's new Cookbook,
which was at Tattered Cover in Denver.

We met for some good eats...
Asian Noodle goodness...

Then headed over to the bookstore...
plenty early to ensure our place in line!
Notice that Ree isn't getting there until 7:30.
This pic was taken at 4:30!!
Oh, there is Anna...
holding up a #1...
because we were 1st in line!!
Woohoo!
We had a while to wait...
So we pretended we were famous enough to sign a book...
Just simply posed...
Read some fun books...
Hugged an alligator...
Read some more...
And waited some more...
Check out how many people were there!
It filled up even more than this!
We heard the lady at Tattered Cover get all frantic and say,
"They're lined up all the way to religion!"
It made us laugh...
We huge ginormous heart Pioneer Woman...
AHHH!!
Here she is!!!
She was funny,
pretty,
and normal.
Exactly like I thought she would be!
L.o.v.e her!!
We were first which was so great...
here Allikaye is showing her Cinderella.
I got a little smudgy smudge on my camera...
but we are still loving this photo op!
It's really her!
I kept touching her arm
saying how much I love all her recipes
and her blog...
I am a nerd...
and star struck!
It was so fun and an adventure to be able to meet
The Pioneer Woman!
I am so glad that my Nebraski Jeanne and Anna came out...
it was so fun...and my best friend mama too!

And this cookbook!!!
I have never thought I would, or could,
read through an entire cookbook.
Well, this thing is entertaining...
funny...
and pretty much awesome!
There isn't one recipe I do not want to make,
which never happens!

I have already started my quest to make every recipe.
Three down...
Twice Baked Potatoes
Marlboro Man's Favorite Sandwich
Macaroni and Cheese
I cherish my SIGNED copy of this cookbook!

Yay for Pioneer Woman!
I'm still waiting for her to call me so we can catch up
and chat about the Ranch!
Bff's!

Anna posted about our time too...
checkety check it out.

Obviously I am in the dark...because i have never heard of Pioneer Woman?? Is it because I live in Canada or am I just a complete loser??

LOL either way I must look into who she is because as I can see I am very much missing out on something awesome!!!! Looks like you had a blast, you are one fun girly girl!!
