So, guess who I got to meet on Monday? That's right! The Pioneer Woman was here in Albuquerque for a book signing event, and I was lucky enough to get tickets to see her! Gabe & I were a little bummed that he didn't get to come along (he's used way more of her recipes than I have, but I have tasted each one he's made!), but with all of this hullabaloo with him starting school full time & having less than 2 weeks left at his job, it seemed like going to work was the best decision. So, I went with a few friends, Suzanne, Heather, and Anne, and we really had a great time.
I don't know why I was surprised to find that I was super nervous when I realized we were only a few minutes away from meeting Ree, but I sure was, which was silly because she was seriously so sweet. I kept telling Gabe afterward that I just couldn't believe how pretty she is. I mean, I knew she was pretty, but in person, she's even prettier. I think it's because she is also so kind.
So, yeah. I met The Pioneer Woman, and I'm pretty sure that most of the females in my family are entirely jealous. :)
