may giveaway

In honor of the month of May and Mother's Day, we have a giveaway we hope you'll love!
  

Of course you MUST all know about Ree, The Pioneer Woman.  Don't you wish you lived on the neighboring ranch in Oklahoma so you could be her BFF?  And eat her food?  And watch her husband ride his horse?

Adorable Ree was in Mesa last weekend for a presentation and book signing.  I couldn't make it to the presentation because Jaci was preparing for Prom, and I couldn't bear missing out on such an occasion.  But as soon as we whisked her and her date out the door, I hopped in the car to see if I could still catch her.  As luck would have it, there she was, waiting for me. :) 

We had a brief conversation and she proved to be just as genuine in real life as she is on her blog and TV.  (horrible lighting and an iphone = bad combination)


Almost as thrilling as meeting her was meeting her husband, "Marlboro Man".  He was really cute and very sweet, and I found myself blushing when we snuggled up together for a picture.


Ree's newest cookbook, Food From my Frontier (currently number one on the NY Times Bestseller List) is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I own.  294 pages of stunning pictures and step by step instructions for every single recipe.  Certainly I don't need to sell you on this cookbook.  It has obviously sold itself.  Trust me, you are going to want it.


Ree is an excellent photographer as well, and her book is chock full of beautiful images from her amazing ranch and home.  Here's one of my favorites.  It reminds me of my country childhood, growing up with my cowboy dad.  Leather gloves, chaps, and a cowboy hat were regular attire.


So, here is your chance to win this amazing cookbook, signed by both Ree and her husband.


Three ways to enter means three chances to win.  Please leave a separate comment for each entry to increase your odds.

1.  Become a follower of our blog.  (If you're not already, how come?!)
2.  Subscribe to our blog.  (You'll get a message in your inbox every time we post.  It's fun.)
3.  "Like" us on {Facebook}. (That should be easy.)

I'll leave you with a couple pictures of Jaci and her dashing date, Andrew.  We found the dress she loved and was dreaming about in a size 12.  My friend Kristen went ahead and made some magic by taking 8 inches out of the bodice and skirt.  That's talent!  She did such a beautiful job custom fitting it to Jaci.  Thanks KJ!  My contribution was making the corsage and boutonniere.  Mia posted a fantastic {tutorial} last year around this time.  I had never done it, but it was really fun and they turned out great!  Never got a picture of the corsage, darn it.


Good luck with the giveaway!  We hope we pick YOU!

xoxo,
J + M
