I recently posted about my boss and a co-worker discussing “Pioneer Woman.” At the time, I was unfamiliar with who exactly they were referring to….only to be educated on her moments later. I referenced the fact that the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, was coming to OU. I had it on my calendar and probably labeled it as “Important” as if it was some mandatory meeting. Well, the moment finally happened this afternoon. A co-worker and one of our student workers and I sat down in anticipation of the energetic, down-to-earth blogger we’d come to love. Our boss joins us and goes, “I just met Ree! I was standing with so-and-so and then she was next to me…” Her face lit up as she told us…it was funny and cool at the same time. A few minutes later, Ree Drummond was introduced. As she began talking, she made you feel like you had known her for years. It didn’t take long for the audience of mainly women to break out in laughter, silently thinking, “oh my gosh, I can sooo relate to her.” Ree talked for about an hour and then took questions. It was a neat time and glad I have become acquainted with her and her blog.
Now when someone asks me if I’ve heard of Pioneer Woman, I can say that I have…and she’s inspired me to keep blogging.
