New Favourite Site

I have just spent two hours reading all the various entries on my new favourite site...and I'm not even a third of the way through. The Pioneer Woman is on my "daily grind" list of websites to hit up! Take a look. I know you'll love it!

It's written by a woman named Ree, who gave up a city-girl life once she fell in love with a real-life, honest-to-goodness cowboy: cowboy boots? Check. Weathered chaps? Check. Muscley arms from wrestling cattle? Check. Check. (Get it? Two arms? Oh, nevermind).

She writes about a seemingly idyllic life on the ranch with her husband (whom she refers to as "Marlboro Man") and her 4 gorgeous children. And what look like hundreds of heads of cattle. She's a funny writer and a great photographer. Some of the photos of her husband and her kids made me tear up.

Don't miss out on reading her account of how she and her husband got together, "From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels". Brilliant. (I'm only on part 20!)

This is one of the best things about the internet -- real people writing real stories about their lives, lives with which I would probably have no encounters otherwise. Thanks Mum for another great site suggestion!!

Thanks Mum! I've been exploring the blog too. I am currently fixated on the picture of snipped calf nutsacks. Thank you for enlightening my life!

Aarti-i started reading Pioneer woman last winter and after reading the first post I had to go all the way back to the beginning and read EVERYTHING. I seriously read every post. And lemme just say that the 'Black Heels to Tractor Wheels' series is AMAZING! Also, try her Crash Potatoes. And chicken salad. And...everything else. Her recipes are great. Glad you are enjoying it!

Have you perused this one? Mum sent it to me and I look at it once in a while to see what cute pics have been posted.
