A Shout-Out

I am wearing flannel pajama pants (I know, ...sexy, huh?) and I just snuggled up under a fleece blanket (because it's colder here today than it is in Tofino, British Columbia, Canada!) and I'm wondering something...

Should I be concerned about the blue flashes of static electricity produced by this cozy combination of fleece and flannel and laptop? Because, quite frankly, I'm concerned that I may suddenly burst into flames.



On the other hand: I may burst into flames because I'm so excited to get a blog shout-out from the Pioneer Woman!

Finally! I was beginning to pout. (I'm such a big baby.) She had linked up to all the other cities' bloggers who had attended her book signing and I was really thinking all she was going to post about Atlanta was a reference to the sushi. I was hoping we hadn't offended her and that she was not just trying to put the whole experience behind her. ; )

O! Ye of little faith.

Now today I have over 500 hits because of her and my little bloggy self has never been happier! Thanks for sharin' the love, P-Dub; you're the coolest. I've learned so much from your site (cooking and photography and blogging) and I just wanted you to know.

P.S. Now THAT's what I should've said to her instead of drooling on her boots! I wish I was quicker on my feet. I always have been the type to think of a snappy comeback 3 weeks later. *sigh*

Oh, I would love to meet her, too! She didn't come anywhere near us. :( I would be feeling the same way you did . . . wondering when she was going to post about the signing I attended. Congrats on your 500 hits! I found you from Joyce over at this side of the pond!

Hey Free Durt girl, I was thinkin' she forgot us too. We just wowed her so much it took a while to get it all into words. You are right we will have o meet in the real world sometime and not just bloggyland. I hope you are staying warm, I hear there is a chance of the white stuff Thurs. I am not holding my breat though.

Good for you! I wanted so badly to get to Atlanta to meet/see her. I have another blog friend who was featured also. Small world.

Love your blog.

Too funny. I thought the same thing about the sushi and was wondering the same thing! Thanks for your comment, it really is too bad we didn't meet. It would have been fun. Hey, I noticed your Tofino reference, are you a Canadian too?

ellen said...

I am pretty jealous right now! Would love to meet her. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Kat, I'm not Canadian but my husband and I were looking at dream hotels to stay at near Vancouver and there's this gorgeous hotel recommended by some book he has and I said to him, "Yeah, it's gorgeous but wait 'til you see the temps there; that will change your mind." And when we looked up the temps on the weather channel it was much warmer there than it was here in GA! Ugh.

I'm with you on the three-week delay for snappy comments!

Thanks for visiting my blog today -- and congrats on the PW mention. 500 visits -- I swear, that's more than I get in a month!

My blog and I are jealous of you and your blog! How cool, I so wish she'd had a book signing close to us. But - here in the middle of the buffalo commons what should I expect :)
