Last night, I got to meet one of my favorite bloggers: Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.
She was in Dallas promoting her new book, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels: A Love Story.
Ree first answered some questions from the audience.
She told us that the book had been optioned for a movie and that she’s currently working on her second cookbook.
She asked her family to join her on the stage (after the audience requested it!). That’s the infamous Marlboro Man and her four “punks.”
I love this photo of Ree and her family. I think it encapsulates her fun, spunky personality.
Her oldest daughter, Alex, disagreed.
I can just feel the eye roll from here, can’t you?
Ah, to be young and a teenager.
Here’s me and The Nerd. He puts up with me and my insane requests to attend author signings on Valentine’s Day.
Just a small sampling of the line. It wrapped around the store.
And then…it was my turn.
I gave Ree a copy of Firefly, an awesome sci-fi show that I have raved about more than once on this site.
I really think she (and Marlboro Man) will enjoy the western feel of the show. At least I hope so!
She seemed interested…but she was probably just humoring me.
We chatted a bit longer as she signed the massive stack of books I put in front of her.
Yay! I *love* her!
Marlboro Man even had his own signing line.
It was such a fun night and I’m so glad I had the chance to go!
And, just because I love you guys and couldn’t leave you out, I got a signed copy of each of her books to give away!
