The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels and Tractor Wheels

What's that you say? A book review?  Holy moly!!  It doesn't happen often but when I find a book worth sharing it has to be done!

Terrible Picture I know!

A little background about my love for Ree Drummond.  When I was 6 months pregnant or so I came upon her first cook book.  I started looking through the recipes and reading some of her stories and knew I had to have it!  It was 24 dollars, if I hadn't been pregnant my cheap frugal self would have passed.  It was worth it!

I made a ton of stuff from it and started reading her blog.  She was hilarious! Then came her food network show....Kind of a bore.  I still watch it for the food, even if it would make me 300 pounds eating it all the time.  The problem is that personality and humor you get from her cook books and blog don't come across in the show.  Disappointing! 

I was cruising through Barnes and Noble the other day and came across this book.  It came out a couple years ago but I thought how the hell did I miss this??  I had read tiny bits of her love story with Marlboro Man but this is the whole thing!

I don't normally like straight romance novels but this one had me laughing, crying, mad, sad, and happy. (Man I'm great with those adjectives).  It wasn't like woman porn that we all know (rom com's, and harlequin romance novels) this was a REAL love story.

It goes from the time they met till they had their first daughter.  It is nice to know that they had their ups and downs like any other relationship.  It was honest and left me feeling like there could be some hope.

The crazy part is the beginning of their love story reminded me of my own, except the end of course.

 It gave me a new respect for the two of them and made me want to go eat some comfort food:)
