The Pioneer Woman Rode Into Town!

Hi, guys! My husband and I were able to attend a great panel discussion at the 92nd Street Y in NYC a few weeks ago. It was hosted by BlogHer. I was really looking forward to it as one of my favorite bloggers was going to be there and speak. Her name is Ree Drummond (aka The Pioneer Woman). She is a blogger, author, mom, photographer, cook and, as she likes to say, "an accidental country girl." The evening was filled with great women bloggers who each took turns talking about their blogs and fielding questions from the audience. I was really excited as my blog wasn't up yet, and I had a lot of questions in my head that were answered. The highlight for me was after the session, when my husband and I got to meet Ree and have her sign my books. I have all three of her books - one cookbook, her love story and her children's book about her basset hound Charlie. My husband was able to tell her his favorite recipes from her book and she was gracious to take a picture with me.

Thank you, BlogHer, for making that wonderful evening a reality. I am looking forward to attending their blogging convention in NYC in August.

Have a great day!  Hope you find a few moments in your day to do what you love!
