When Dreams are Realized (Saucy Diva)
I've been sitting in front of my computer for about 10 minutes now trying to think of an eloquent way to describe yesterday. I can't, so here goes... WE FREAKING MET REE DRUMMOND!!!!!! Anyone who knows the divas or follows this blog, knows that Ree, otherwise known as the Pioneer Woman is our hero. Seldom does a DTD meeting go by where someone doesn't contribute one of her delicious recipes.
Ree, or P-dub as we lovingly call her, is currently on a book tour for Black Heels to Tractor Wheels , a true story about how she met the love of her life, Marlboro Man. While sadly she was not stopping in Indianapolis, she was scheduled to be in Cincinnati, a mere hour and 1/2 away. So a Diva Ditch Day was declared!
After stops at Jungle Jim's, a foodie paradise, and IKEA (Dear Indianapolis, We need one of these. Thank you.) we arrived at the Joseph-Beth Bookstore and waited not so patiently for our chance to talk to Ree.
She was amazing, just like we knew she would be! So stinking cute too! Just a real person who loves to cook, her kids, her dog Charlie, and a good show tune.
So Ree, if you are reading this, thank you for being an inspiration to female foodie bloggers like us. Keep posting deliciousness on the interwebs and thank you for a great memory.
