Good Luck NOT Staring at the Photo

I recently stumbled upon The Pioneer and am pretty sure I'm in love.

How have I missed this chronicle of life on a working cattle ranch with a dose of motherhood and a splash of chefage?! Haven't I been a good blog reader? A good internet comber? And here was Ree, the PW, writing fantastic posts, taking killer good pictures, whipping up all sorts of delish meals DOING THE VERY THING THAT I WANT TO DO and where have I been? Who knows.

I am absolutely floored with PW, which could have something to do with my insane jealousy, but let's not get rash in our accusations. It's still early yet (but exactly when does one become a fan girl?).

One of the main reasons that I am without a doubt hooked is her series 'Black Heels to Tractor Wheels' which details how she went from living in the city in a golf course community to falling in love and marrying her cowboy husband, Marlboro Man. I have made it through number 23 and cannot wait to get back to read the next, oh, 20 installments.

This stuff is good y'all, and I'm not just saying that because I have a fine appreciation for a cowboy. More specifically, a cowboy in chaps. Which she posts pictures of, BTW.

I can see it in your eyes... You'll be clicking on over momentarily, won't you?

Oh, and if you are a bit squeamish on the whole working ranch bit, be sure to check out the whole list of posts about their dogs. I have only read a few, but this one made me laugh out loud, especially the last picture and caption.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have legitimate work that I need to postpone while I go read PW. I wonder if I can somehow wrangle (get it?!) this site into my research and thesis... Yes?

5 tips left at the bar:

That is an AWESOME website, because you know, I HEART cowboys in Wranglers.......ummmmm...
Her contact info is out of Tulsa, do you know where the Ranch is?

I've seen this site before, and I can't think of when... anyway, it reminded me of you! Pretty amazing, all she does. I'm sure you can work it all into your thesis, somehow! Why not?

Megan, I don't know whether to kiss you or curse you. This blog looks aweseome, and I can see myself losing hours in the archives. Damn that job I have - not enough hours in the day!!

If I don't comment on your blog for a while, you will only have yourself to blame!

You have killed my productivity today...not a particularly difficult accomplishment, but still.

I go away for three weeks, come back and your blog has a different (and cool I might add) new look and you seem to be in love with a woman on a ranch. WTF?!
