The time I died...

A while back I got up one Monday morning and through blurry eyes checked my email.
And I saw an email from Ree Drummond. And I died.
Ree?! Whaaaa? The Pioneer Woman?

I opened it and it said, "Hi Beki...." And then I died.
Whaaa? She knows my name?! What the flagnog is going on here??

I read more.
"I think you're wonderful and skinny and stunningly beautiful and hilarious..."
Okay it didn't say that.
It was something more like, "I want to feature you on my blog." And I died.

So we've emailed back and forth for a while.
One night I was dying from anticipation and I emailed her something like "You didn't forget about your wonderful and skinny and beautiful and hilarious friend, did you Ree Ree?" She likes it when I call her Ree Ree.
She told me so.

She replied something very polite about having a busy week.
And the next morning I saw her on The Today Show joking around with Al Roker.
And I died. I felt like a heel!
She's been busy with book tours, national tv appearances, mommying, wifeing, ranching, shooting a new tv show... and yet she's still taken time for me.

So that's where I am today. Featured on The Pioneer Woman.
Because Ree Ree is a sweetheart.

I die.
