Last Thursday night I had plans to meet my sister in law, Amanda for dinner. She was coming to town with a group of women from her church for the Women of Faith Conference. About 7:45 it was time to head to the restaurant. The restaurant just happened to be right across the street from where THE Pioneer Woman was signing her brand new cookbook!!
I decided to make a little stop in at the bookstore before heading across the street for dinner. The signing was to be from 5:30-8:30. By the time I got there it was almost 8… so I figured I might have a chance! Oh, I was So, So wrong! The line was absolutely amazingly long. Crazy long. I ended up running into Janell and Bailey who had been in line for 2 hours already and had moved about 30 feet. They were so kind to let me hang out in line with them for a while.
After moving two feet in about 30 minutes I knew there was no way to meet Amanda and meet PW. I found out that there WAS a way to have my book signed though!
I dropped my book off at the counter and then snapped some pictures of PW! I only felt slightly like a stalker!
As I was leaving, I noticed a face I knew… Amy from Mom spark. I’ve “known” her for a while, but we’ve never met in person! I can’t believe we didn’t get a picture together… but Amy had a brilliant way to get a picture w/ PW woman!!
Here we are… the PW & I…. well kind of !
I DID get to meet my sweet sister in law for dinner at Cheesecake Factory and man was it good!
It was a fun night and in the end I totally had the best of both worlds…
