I was so excited to get this box in the mail. It contained my copy of Ree Drummond’s The Pioneer Woman Cooks! cookbook which had been on backorder from Christianbook.com for a couple of weeks.
I love that a blogger wrote a cookbook that reads just like her amazing blog and is now a #1 New York Times bestselling author. That speaks to me, a writer and a cook and a blogger, on so many levels that I cannot even begin.
Back to my horror story of skill and cunning.
Ten days ago, I left my home in Kentucky and headed south to Tallahassee, Florida. I got into town Thursday afternoon, visited friends, and went to another friend’s house for the evening. Friday morning I did some business at the courthouse, had lunch with friends, picked Kaylee up from school, had dinner with friends, and went back to a friend’s house for the evening. Saturday morning, we headed south toward the Florida Panhandle’s coast, picking up a friend of Kaylee’s on the way, and took up residence in a little beach house in Mexico Beach.
I am SO excited to be participating in the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party. Having the opportunity to meet so many other bloggers is extremely exciting! I love parties. I love mingling, networking, trading business cards, admiring shoes. So, if you’re here visiting from another blog, and attending this Party, it’s wonderful to meet you. I’m Hallee Bridgeman. Here is my card:
I have a blogger friend, Christy, whose blog is called Tales of the Toot. This woman is AMAZING. Her son, Aiden, has an ultra rare condition called typical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (AHUS) (read about Aiden on his website here). While I whine about losing sleep because I have two boys who have never slept well, she loses sleep because she has to get up and check Aiden’s dialysis machine all night long.
The Easter holiday is barely removed from its pagan background. Easter even gets its name from the pagan goddess of spring, Eostre. The myth has it that she rescued a bird whose wings were frozen from the winter wind by turning it into a rabbit. Because the rabbit had once been a bird, it could lay eggs. And there you have the modern Easter Bunny and Easter eggs.
