Remember that contest I promised?

So last night the Pioneer Woman had a book signing for her new book Black Heels to Tractor Wheels at the Mayo. To say that it was crowded is an understatement.

I went with my friend Iris and we got there about 15 minutes after the event started. There was not a seat to be had. But I had already purchased my book and had to get it signed. Luckily, my friend April (in the middle below) was there and was sweet enough to take my book and Iris' book to get signed. (I told her if I ever get to go to the ranch, she can come with me!)

This photo is from when we went to the cookbook signing in 2009.

Not only did April get me a signed copy, she got an extra one signed for one of you!

I thought this was appropo since the Pioneer Woman was the first blog I ever read and since this contest is in honor of hitting 100+ blog followers.

Anyway, to win, all you need to do is comment with the name/link to your favorite blog. And if you are a follower, I will throw in an extra bonus of customized stationery. Just leave your comment before this Saturday at 9 a.m. CST.
And if you really, really want to win this signed copy, you can get leave extra comments for posting about this on FB, Twitter or your blog.
Thanks again for reading! I heart you guys! (April, I really heart you!!!)

  2. I missed her when she came my way (Cincinnati) last month because I was at the doctors with our sick baby! I bet she's as funny in person as she is on her blog.

  7. Oooooooh! I think that this is is something I way super-duper need to win!! So my favorite blog is tulsadetails.blogspot.com but I have a feeling that isn't what you had in mind. A couple blogs I love are: strangeandlovelyride.blogspot.com cause I have never met Aja, but I comment on her blog like I know who her 1st grade teacher was and she doesn't think I am a total loon. "Total" being the key word. Another blog I like are modgblog.com cause even though she ate her own beef-jerkeyed placenta and that is way creepy, she is still hilarious.

    So, after all that, I win, right???

  20. I have to say the Pioneer Woman is my favotite blog! Its the first one that I check when I get into work every day... Great giveaway!

  21. I had no ideas she was here! Holy moley, I totally would have gone all army crawler to get a glimpse! My obsession is about three years late, I know, but I just adore her. My little babysitter had a soccer game in Pawhuska last week, and I asked her if I could come, just so I could say I was in the same town as The Pioneer Woman. Pathetic, I know. Love her that much though.

  28. As I have said many times, PW is my idol. I met her when she was on the cookbook tour, my daughter, who was homeschooled at the time, played with her 2 boy punks in the bookstore while I waited in the very long signing line! Then PW was so sweet as my daughter tried to take pictures of her with her own camera :)MM was there too, passing out free tshirts. SO I have a signed cookbook, of course I need a signed Black Heels to go with it!
