I became the cool mom...

My kids LOVE Pioneer woman.
We DVR her show on the weekend and Annie loves to watch her on Mondays when she comes home from school.
By the end of the show Bo and Rocco are always curled up beside Annie watching too.  Then we print off a recipe or two & usually try them during the week.
Olive Bread

Good Morning Muffins
I have been known to Instagram about her recipes we make ,
or even just about me watching her Pioneer Woman show.
Yesterday...She was at the Mall of America. 
We go to church 10 minutes from there.
Soooo...we had to swing by & just peek at her.
We were not crazy enough to stand in line because all the kids would have wanted to (except Roo), and all those kids in line would have been torture for EVERYONE, so we just got a good spot right above her on the balcony.
And there she was,
right below us.
I only had my phone with so I didn't get very good pictures.
After about half an hour the boys went to get the car while I let Annie watch a tad longer.
Then right before we were about to leave...
she asked, "Are there any other bloggers out there?"
It was silent.
I raised my hand high, waved it back and forth,
and I did a very loud, "WoooooooooHoooooo!" 
So she looked right up at me, saw me waving, and said, "Hi!"
Of course I yelled, "Hi!" back.
And then Annie thought I was the coolest mom there.
I kinda thought so too.
So now you know another one of my little secrets...
I'm pretty nerdy.

But hey...
Nerdy is very fun!

That is so nice that all of you got to see her in person. Bonus points for being a cool mom too. I love her show... I actually love just about every show on Food Network. Mmm, so much food, so little time.

How fun! Imagine you were the only blogger there. My kids think I'm lame for blogging. Little do they know! :) I've seen the Pioneer Woman on The Today Show many times. Simple cooking with fresh ingredients is what I like best. Hope you are having a wonderful week. Tammy

That is so cool that not only did you get to see the Pioneer Woman but you got to interact with her, too! :)

My girls wanted us to go there so bad but, unlike you, I am NOT a cool mom and I said no. It's not like they couldn't have gone there by themselves but I guess they didn't want to go without me.

The thing is, we'd been to MOA the day before and I can only handle so much of MOA in a short span...

Anyway, good for you! You just keep upping the cool factor! ;)
