The Pioneer Woman Comes to Seattle and Book Give-Away Contest

Last night I was able to sneak out of the inn for a fun little night in Bothell at Third Place Books. The mission? To get my copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier signed.


After a week of extreme spring cleaning, I told myself that I deserved it.

Before the signing, I found a couple of my Facebook friends. This is me, Ninfa and our cameras.

This is me, Melissa and our super smart glasses. And I’m not sure why, but my perced lips.

Mom & I had an opportunity to move from row 493 up to row 5. We took it. All we had to do was sit apart from one another. Here is my cutie mom about 6 seats down the row from me. Whenever Ree said or did something funny, we looked at one another and laughed.

I knew she was a good woman. She has a Mac. She also had a power point though, so I guess that kinda balanced things out.

Can’t say I’ve ever put it on a power point presentation but I did that too. That’s why I have to use a Mac. It balances things out.

Ree may have sang a love song to her dog, Charlie. And she may have cheated on him a little bit with Earl while in Seattle.


And I may have taped the end of it. Her song started out lovely but then this happened. And it was hilariously adorbs.

Here’s me, my recent spray tan, my mom and Ree.

She was sweet enough to accept my business card as though she had never seen one before and I heard that she stayed at least until midnight to sign every single book. She is such a kind heart – so humble and fun. I love her. Maybe one day we can put Sun-In on our hair together. Or maybe, you know, just sing My Endless Love. I’ve never sang it to a dog before but I did do a very similar rendition at a wedding once.

To celebrate endless love and Sun-In and magical Macs that balance all quirky things out, I’m giving away one autographed copy of Ree’s new book.

To enter to win, just leave a comment on this blog post and let us know who or what you would sing My Endless Love to if you were to sing it to someone other than, well, you know, a human. It just plain makes things more fun. Enter by midnight on Friday, April 27th and the winner will be randomly chosen using random.org.

Coming tomorrow: The Pioneer Woman’s Steakhouse Pizza
