My favorite Blog

I can't believe I sat down at my computer about an hour and a half ago to check my email and here I am, still sitting at my computer. I haven't been checking my email at all, I decided instead to look at some of my favorite blog links I have here on my sidebar.

I realized that it had been almost a month since I'd been on "Confessions of a Pioneer Woman". A month!! That's crazy. She writes something almost every day. How could I go that long without looking at her site?

She really is my favorite blog to read. If I were stranded somewhere and had the choice of only one site on the computer I'd pick her site. (I know, being stranded and having access to a computer doesn't actually make sense, but you know what I mean.) I either laugh out loud or get teary eyed every time I read her entries.

Her name is Ree and she just cracks me up! She's a city girl that met her husband (Marlboro Man) and moved with him to his family ranch in the mid west several years ago. She's one year older than me, so I can very much relate to her references to junior high or high school, the 80's fashion & hair disasters, etc... She has 4 children, two girls and two boys (she affectionately refers to them as her "punks"). She home schools. She posts great step by step recipes. She's remodeled this lodge on their ranch for friends and family to come and stay (I would live there, it's wonderful.) She gardens. I don't understand how she can do it all! And to top it off, she's a fabulous, self taught photographer. I just love the Pioneer Woman!!

If you've never checked her out, I hope you will. I haven't gone all the way back to the beginning posts on her blog, but I've gone back quite a ways. I don't think you have to go back to enjoy her, it will just take a little while to get to know all the characters in her life.

Well, now that it's almost midnight, I'd better get off of here and get to bed. Work always comes a little too early for me, the night owl. Good night!
