I met The Pioneer Woman!

Last night Ree Drummond, (The Pioneer Woman), was in town for her Dallas book signing, and I was FOURTH in line people! There's a lot to be said for arriving at Borders at 9am on the morning of the signing to get your gold (first color group) wristband! (Thank you Shawn!) :) Especially considering it was a "sell out"! Borders had 700 books, which meant they had 700 wristbands...SEVEN HUNDRED. Gosh, I hope we weren't too much for Ree!? Texans do it up big!

She was too-too cute, and she brought along the girls - AND gave us t-shirts! It was a GREAT time, something Julie and I had been looking forward to for MONTHS. We had a blast talking to all of the folks waiting in line, and then went for pizza while all the other poor, miserable souls waited it out! And I called the Borders at Preston/Royal this morning, and found out that Ree stayed until 2:00AM signing those books for those patient folks - TWO AM people! Trooper, trooper I tell ya'!

(Click on pics to enlarge, l-r:) crowds gathering for Ree, Ree arrives w/ her girls and speaks to us for a bit, me passing off my gift basket (which after being there I feel turned out embarrassingly huge! lol), Julie with Ree, and the beautiful t-shirts (Wild Olive Tees) she gave each and every one of us! So sweet!


  1. Hi,

    I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm Sherry (there last night right behind you girls, with my sweet daughter, Becky). Visiting with you and your friend, plus Valarie, made a fun evening even better! I will enjoy stopping by your blog in the future.

    Blessings, Sherry B.

  2. I'm wearing my PW t-shirt today! Wasn't last night a blast!
    I'll have to start checking your blog regularly... a Dallas gal that likes good food is alright with me!


  3. Hey Sherry and Lucinda!

    So great to meet you gals last night...Ree was so fun, I've been smiling all day! :)

    Thanks for looking at my blog and reaching out. :)

  4. You were lucky. I was at the front of the yellow group (3rd) and got my book signed at 10:00. I found your blog through comments on another blog. I noticed you have Blythe Beck on your sidebar. Love her!

  5. OMG, I just couldn't believe how long it took...even for you to be there for 3 hours is torture enough! lol

    I'm glad you found my blog, I'm following you now as well - and yes, I LOVE Blythe! I met here back when she was at Hectors on Henderson, when she was trying to option the show to networks. So glad it worked out for her, and I've been to see her at Central 214 a few times. GREAT food - go if you haven't already. :)

  6. Looks like you had a lot of fun! I wish I could go to one of her book signings!
