After running around the city for a while, we decided we'd head up to eat lunch and then attend a book signing by Ree Drummond, also know as The Pioneer Woman. Have you heard of her? If not, I highly recommend visiting her site... if you like cooking, photography, homeschooling, home & garden or general humor about ranch life and Charlie, her dog. Oh... and definitely visit if you love a good love story.
When we arrived to the plaza where the book signing would be, we were a little too early to get into the restaurant so I suggested we stop in to the book store so I could pick up an extra book (or maybe more). We were so glad we did! Once we arrived we were informed we needed a "ticket" to get in on the book signing. We grabbed one up (along with the books) and, feeling charged up, went to lunch.

I'm thinking that this book store wasn't quite prepared for the fan base Ree Drummond has.
After waiting several hours, and enjoying some quite entertaining people watching (boy, were some women angry that they had a white card!), our color was called to line up on the carpet. Off we went.

At this point in time, CT and I were getting pretty excited. Flat K? Well, she was hanging on to the books I'd gotten to be signed. Faster than I thought would happen, we reached The Tile.

And then... we were next!

Flat K made sure I didn't forget all of you. She assured me that some of you out there would LOVE to have a book signed by The Pioneer Woman and thus... she is extending this opportunity to WIN a signed copy of Ree's cookbook:
OR Ree's newly released, true-life love story about she and her husband, nicknamed "Marlboro Man".
What do you have to do to enter this great giveaway? Well, leave me a comment and answer this question: If you only had 3 minutes to say something to a "famous" person you liked who would you pick to meet and what would you quickly say? Famous is in quotes because it is a bit subjective, so I'll take anyone who has some sort of popularity outside of your hometown. How's that?
This giveaway is open until Thursday, March 3rd at midnight Eastern time.
After that, I will be on a scrappin' retreat (YAY) so I will pick and post winners upon my return. That's right, winners... one winner will receive the cook book and the other will receive the novel.
Shhhh... here's a sneaky peek about something goin' on while I'm on the retreat: a blog hop and another pretty cool giveaway (in my opinion) on the horizion. Stay tuned!
