The Pioneer Woman reminded me to Blog Often (via her blog, no actual conversation took place...but I did see her at QuickTrip)

So while I was perusing one of my favorite blogs today and entering my name in her many giveaways, I realized how I am failing as a blogger.  The busier my life gets, the less I blog...and it should really be the opposite!  How am I going to remember everything that happened September 2012 unless I blog...and blog often!? 

The blog I was reading and absolutely love is The Pioneer Woman.  Yes...if you are a woman living in Oklahoma and are interested {even in the slightest} about cooking, photography, and/or country life, you're a fan of Ree Drummond.

 A few months ago I actually saw her sitting in her car at QuickTrip in Sand Springs.  I probably wouldn't have even noticed, but I saw 2 girls in QT wearing shirts that said Drummond. That's when I realized those girls were her kiddo's.  As I walked out to my car, there she was looking down at her phone in her white SUV. 

Side Story: It was the same star struck feeling I got when I saw Garth Brooks at Linens N' Things in Owasso a few years ago. I was working there at the time, so I just acted like I was straightening the aisles when in reality I was watching him through the folded towels.  Yes I know, it wasn't my best moment.  I'm not even a country music fan!  That's when I realized that if you're remotely of "celebrity" status, I might be a little star struck. 

My mouth dropped open and I looked at my husband parked a couple spots down and mouthed, "That's PW!" 

 He then mouthed back, Huh??

Once I got in the car, I repeated, That's the pioneer woman in that white car!

My husband then says, Go up and say hi...ask her to sign your cookbook.

My reply, Yeah, cuz that's not creepy. I'm sure she would appreciate me tapping on her car door just to say hi awkwardly and then to sign the cookbook I don't have with me.

Anyways, the blog post she wrote that caught my attention and made me realize how little I actually blog is this one:

10 Important Things I've Learned About Blogging

#2 - Blog Often.

I really need to make more of an effort.  Sometimes I wonder how she manages her time...to be able to do all that she does.  Maybe she's already blogged about it...I should double check...and to see if I've won anything.
