Big doings for Katie and Ree!
Katie got her drivers permit yesterday morning. She can get her license on February 25th 2016.
Six months of driving practice. I guess that's good. Her dad took her out last night for her very first time behind the wheel. They drove around a circular driveway at a nearby school; five times around.
The first mini lesson was a success. :o)
When we arrived home we notices a huge box at the door.
I couldn't remember ordering anything....
I glanced at the return label and there I spied, Ree Drummond.
Oh man! The box was too big for the newest cookbook....
but could it be some items from her new product line?
The packaging alone was adorable and perfect.
Katie wondered if I was going to take pictures every step of the way.
LOOK!!! Delightful. Charming. Cheerful. That's what I say!
I honestly can't believe my good fortune in getting to know Ree all those years ago. She is really such a generous, kind, thoughtful person.
A sweet story about Ree that people don't know...
Last winter my sister Janet had a kitchen accident. I can't remember how it happened but all of her cherished Pioneer Woman cookbooks were ruined by water. Janet loves Ree and stands in line to get her cookbooks signed. Ree always remembers my sisters when they show up and she makes them feel very special! (She has a knack of making people feel special.)
Back to the waterlogged cookbooks, Janet posted a picture of her cookbooks on her Instagram page.
Ree spotted them and immediately offered to send Janet new cookbooks!
A month later Janet received all the cookbooks in the mail...all signed.
That's the kind of thing Ree does.
So when Ree sends me a huge box filled with her delightful, charming, happy products...
I can't wait to share them!!! I'm so happy for her success!
Don't you just love the turquoise and red together?
The colors are so happy!
But guess what, one of my favorite items is a creamy white plate.
I have a thing for scallops!
It's been so fun to watch her become The Amazing Pioneer Woman :o)
On September first we will learn where the Pioneer Woman line will be sold.
Do you have any guesses?
