And then Chris and I annoyed her on Twitter and I was afraid we would go to jail, but she ended up following both of us so that one kind of actually worked to our favor.
But now it seems the tides are shifting. Instead of me following her around and begging for her to be my bestest friend on earth, she has now followed me all the way to Orlando where she is doing a book signing tomorrow night at a Barnes and Noble here.
Seriously, PW. I already told you I’ll be your friend. You really didn’t have to come all the way down here.
So, tomorrow night Chris and I are going to take Beaner over to the bookstore to meet our beloved family friend again. Bean is so excited. He can’t decide if he should wear his cowboy boots or not. I’m voting no. Chris says yes.
We are a family divided.
Anyway, as the time of the book signing gets closer and closer, I am getting more and more nervous. In fact, I have almost talked myself out of going. I’m afraid we’ve made complete fools of ourselves and that when we get to the bookstore, security might escort us out.
Or, I’m afraid PW will recognize us as those weirdos who stalk her and she’ll say something like, You people again?€
I decided the only way to prevent these things from happening is to come bearing gifts. And I found the PERFECT gift for my BFF.
Remember in the late 80s and early 90s when all the girls had friendship necklaces? Well, I found one for PW and me!
Now, she’ll get half the heart and I’ll get the other half and we will officially be best friends. And then maybe she will call off security when they try to kick out her best friend. Hopefully.
Anyway, I figure that I shouldn’t be the only one who becomes friends with PW tomorrow. So, today I am giving away a personalized, signed copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I’ll take the cookbook to the book signing tomorrow and have PW sign it to the winner of today’s giveaway.
To be entered to win, please leave a comment telling me what your favorite type of food is. Mine is Mexican. I can’t get enough of it. Especially the queso. I’m a professional queso connoisseur.
The giveaway will close tonight at 8:00 PM. Be sure to check back tomorrow morning to see if you’re the winner. If I don’t hear from the winner by noon tomorrow, then I’ll choose another winner. I need to make sure I get confirmation from the winner before I have a book signed over to them. The winner. (I felt like I needed to throw one more “the winner” in this paragraph…)
Also, if you’re in the Orlando area you should come on out tomorrow, May 12, and meet The Pioneer Woman at her book signing. The signing will be at Barnes and Noble (2418 E Colonial Drive, Orlando) at 6:00 pm. If you see Chris, Bean, and me in line, be sure to say hello!
This giveaway is not sponsored by anyone, especially The Pioneer Woman. Because I’m pretty sure she thinks I’m freaking crazy.
