You all know Pioneer Woman, right? Right?!? If you don't you have a l-o-n-g day/night reading ahead of you because when you head over to her site you won't leave for several hours. My friend (and fellow blogger Mel) introduced me to her a couple of years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I followed her cookbook journey and missed meeting her at our closest "big city" because my kids had a school program the same night she was going to be there signing her cookbooks. You might remember that I purchased 7 of them in December. . .well, they were such a big hit as Christmas gifts this year that I decided to buy three more for my up-coming Girl's Weekend on Anna Maria Island.I remembered reading at some point that Ree would be happy to sign any books that we sent to her if we weren't able to actually make it to one of her signings. Once my books arrived from Amazon I shipped them off to her, hoping the offer was still good. I wrote her a quick note and told her what the gift was for and sent them off. . .
Well, today, they came back to me!!! Isn't she great?!? Look how she personalized all of them for my dear, sweet friends. . .
I just know that she's as great in person as she is online!!! Many times I find myself forwarding some of her posts to my husband -- I know that this is a life he would love. Her recipes really are great and I've enjoyed her cookbook very much. If you don't have a copy yet, it's worth your pennies :)
So. . .again Ree. . .thank you very much for taking the time to personalize these cookbooks for my dearest friends and Aunt. And in case you were wondering (I'm sure you weren't. . .) the marker you used to re-use the box STILL SMELLED!!! Ha! I've used those before. . .you get high when you take off the cap. . .Thank you, thank you!
