It was dark and stormy night when I discovered her blog. Her name kept coming up in a craft blog I follow and one particular week she was mentioned on it every single day. At that point I decided to visit her blog to see for myself what all the hubbub was all about. Two hours later and approaching midnight I realized I had fallen hook, line and sinker. Now this is the point where some of you guys may prefer to stop reading...or maybe not. You see she goes by Pioneer Woman and she fell in love with Marlboro Man. They have 4 children and live on a 4 generation ranch in Oklahoma. She blogs about everyday life, her children, animals, homeschooling, ranch life, and cooking to name just a few. Now I'm not one to read gossip columns or magazines but there is just something about her way of life I just find interesting. Maybe's it the fact that she homeschools her kids, takes really good pictures and posts really good recipes that keeps me coming back. It possibly might be the fact she lives on thousands of acres where cowboys actually still round up cattle. I don't know, but everyday I stop by to see what's happening on the ranch.

What about you all any noteworthy blogs you're following?

is a blog. Is it something you catch from someone else or is it homegrown?
Takes me all my time living my own life let alone telling the world about it.
Strange folk exsist everywhere.

Love the pioneer woman cooks!!!

I have been following her for about a year now. I have tried many of her recipes and we have loved them all. I originally found out about her site on some morning talk show....don't remember which one.

There is another I check in on every now and again at new dress a day. She buys a dress for $1 a day and then re-vamps it to make it current. The dress's come from yard sales and consignment stores. I do not like everything she does but love the idea and can't help but look.

Oh, I love her cookbook too!

Oh, I love her cookbook too! and you're right about the recipes - the ones we've tried have been delicious. I also check on a couple of others...younghouselove and what they did with their little ranch house. IF you go and visit that site be sure to check on the house tour. I also like another one called farmgirlfare, it's about a farm in Missouri, she features little snipets about farm life and great recipes too. And one very similar to yours called whatiwore...she shops vintage and takes a daily picture. I'm going to check yours out right now lol!

And come to think of it Colin..I don't read any blogs written by men...hmmm
