So Katie and I are pretty excited right now. We just found out that Pioneer Woman is coming to Charlotte on May 7th! Back before we were bloggers, we did something crazy, abandoned our husbands and homes and made the drive to Atlanta Georgia to see Ree Drummond in person and have her sign our cookbooks. Now, normally this wouldn't be crazy, it's a road trip, but the thing was the timing:
3:00 pm - I pick up Katie at her house and we leave Charlotte
7:00 pm - We arrived in Atlanta only to find out the signing started an hour early
7:00 - 10:30 pm - Stood in line with some awesome and equally obsessed people waiting to have our cookbooks signed
11:00 pm - left Atlanta for our 4 hour drive home
3:00 am - Arrive back at Katie's house safely to drop her off
4:00 am - In bed, ready to sleep
My first hook was the food blogging. She takes the most beautiful photos of what she cooks, and goes step by step, usually with no less than 25 photos to a recipe, start to finish. She also took all of her own photographs for her cookbook, which is just beautiful.
