I am such a Dork!

Can you tell who I met tonight? You would think I would remember my camera but no I had to rely on just my cell phone. So the pics are what they are.

I am getting a little closer can you tell yet?

I was lucky enough to get to meet Ree Drummond the Pioneer Woman tonight. I have been following her blog for several months. She is such a neat person. Even though she had a line of probably a 1000 or more people she was taking the time to have a nice conversation with each person. WOW! You would think I would remember half of the things I wanted to share with her but did I, no I was a bumbeling idiot. I was more than amazed that she remembered the fact that she had seen my name on her new site Tasty Kitchen. Don't think I can say enough nice things about her. I have enjoyed getting to know her through her blog. She is such an interesting person and talented writer. She has a multifaceted blog that has sparked my creative side in new ways. She must have the patience of Job because she is homeschooling 4 beautiful children. She is also an extremely talented photographer. Her cooking skills come across as nothing less than AWESOME! Hence my little escapade into the bookstore tonight. She has released her long awaited cook book and I can not wait to dive in. When I told my son he was excited for me to dive in as well saying something to the effect that he hopes it improves my cooking. Boys you just got to love em. My daughter was so excited saying "Isn't she the one you read on the computer?" I am so proud to see a fellow GenXr succeeding.

Thanks REE! This evening was so worth it!
