In my house there are 2 girls and 2 boys. Total. Me and Jenny and Shane and Will. Shane and Will are always traipsing off on a Boy Scout adventure. Camping in the rain, sleeping in huts made of sticks and leaves, and doing things that they will tell me about in 20 years when it's "funny." Of course we miss them when they are gone but we do enjoy our "girl weekends." I don't know how much longer she will want to spend those with me but I'll take it as long as I can get it. We like to go shopping and make crafts. She helped me repaint the bathroom one weekend, and one weekend we spent the entire day Saturday making valentine goodies for her class and other friends. It was fabulous, but every once in awhile we get a hankerin' to go somewhere. So when the chance came along to go to Birmingham and hang out with one of our favorite cookbook authors we jumped on it.
Ree said to tell you all hello.
We got to visit with her for awhile. Ok. She signed our books, took a picture and we had to move on but she was super sweet. She's very pretty in real life and had the same quirky sense of humor she writes with. It was such a fun thing for Jenny and I to do together and I'm glad she was excited to go see an author and chef and not some pop star with only half her clothes on. I hope we can keep it that way!
I'm going to go now and cook my way through Ree's new cookbook. She told me to make the orange sweet rolls. She really did!
