ladies, i am just beyond excited because in 12 short hours, i will be meeting the pioneer woman!

my mama and i are HUGE fans {after i belatedly discovered her blog in february, i passed it on to the madre, who is also now a devoted reader} so she is meeting me at my apartment this afternoon and we're making the quick trek up to the fairfax borders to meet ree in person!  i am sure i will be blushing beet red and lose all grasp of the english language the second i see her, but i am super-duper pumped nonetheless.  plus, i'm taking my mom to a nearby p.f. chang's for dinner.  if you can believe it, she has NEVER eaten at one, so this will be a nice little pre-mother's day treat for her.

y'all, seriously....i cannot WAIT to meet the creator of such delicious goodness as buttered rosemary rolls, bacon-wrapped jalapeno thingies, and the best chocolate sheet cake. ever. keep your fingers crossed that i don't make a total blithering idiot of myself!

One word...two syllables:


Have a great time & enjoy Chang's with your Mom (mmm...chicken lettuce wraps!).

Oh my goodness, HOW WAS IT?!!? I was so surprised the first time I heard Ree speak, she has such a tiny voice for someone who has such a HUGE voice online!! She is amazing, I am sure you had a BLAST! Hope you had fun at PF Changs - I second Michelle above - LETTUCE WRAPS!!

Oh my gosh, I was there, too! I had such a great time chatting with everyone in line. I wish I had seen your post yesterday, so we could have met up! Did you actually make it to PF Changs? My friend and I were there until after 10 o'clock!
