cookbook signed by Ree Drummond herself!!!!
We got upstairs around 9:15pm and had our signed by 9:30pm All those people still had to wait to get upstairs, oh and they weave in and out of the book isle.
We met a lot of nice people while we were in line, and after you stand in line w/ the same people for 4hours start to feel like you have known them forever. Here are the wonderful ladies we met while waiting.
From left to right: Of course there is Cathy, my wonderful friend who worked all day from 6am, got off at 2:45 came home changed clothes and drove me to Orlando for this book signing! Did I mention we did not get home till 11:30pm. Next is Dana, she was such a funny lady, did you know that there is a national pizza throwing group and a national yo yo champion. Well her two boys are in both! Check out her blog at Moon Pie in the Sky, she also makes the cutest cupcakes. Then there was sweet Cecilia, Miss Coupon Queen. She was full of great ideas for deals and coupons. I was so excited to get home and look up her web site. Check it out Live Love Coupons. Next is precious Jennifer with her sweet little 5 week old daughter. Jennifer has a wonderful husband and 6 year old son who hung out the whole 4 hours while we waited. I have so enjoyed learning more about Jennifer on her blog The Three of Us Very inspirational woman.
All the waiting for 4 hours for this......
Most of all this...
She even wished me a Happy Birthday! Ree (Pioneer Woman) was so sweet and funny just like in her writings of her blog and her book.
I am very thankful for a wonderful Birthday Adventure that Cathy blessed me with.
