The only thing the Pioneer Woman and I have remotely in common is the fact that we were both in St. Louis the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 17.
I apologize for the quality of my photos.
By the way, if you are not familiar with who Pioneer Woman is, go here:
I was at her book signing which was held at the Christ Church Cathedral. It was a lot of fun. I had a "nearly" front row seat. She did a question and answer session in which different members of the audience stood at the mic and asked a question.
Her yummy husband, Marlboro Man, and her two sons, Bryce and Todd, were there also. The boys were typical boys and were all over the place. At one point, when Ree realized the audience was laughing at something behind her, she called out, "Uh, Honeeeeyy!". The boys were behind her on the dias cutting up. Even Bryce, the oldest of the two boys, went through the line of us waiting to have our cookbooks autographed, and signed our books. Marlboro Man was more than willing to sign also. They are very nice, down to earth folks and were just so kind and fun and comfortable to be around.
This was my first book signing and I was prepared for a long ordeal of standing in line. But it was nothing like that. I was seated by a young mom with her two daughters. They were adorable and very well behaved.
In the photo at the right Todd is "assisting" his dad in handing out the free Pioneer Woman T-shirts that were given to everyone.
You will find much better photos of the different book signing events at Pioneer Woman's blog. She also has some clickable links to other bloggers who attended the event.
I am so glad that I didn't back out of this trip. It was worth every minute of the 180 miles drive (which dear hubby did!)and worth getting there 2 1/2 hours early to be sure I got a good seat.
