Black Heels to Tractor Wheels: 1

I'm linking up with those RHOK ladies today for their new RHOK reads!

They're starting their new book club with Ree Drummond's (AKA The Pioneer Woman) love story novel Black Heels to tractor Wheels!

As we all now know, I'm a HUGE PW fan! I love reading her blog and drooling over Marlboro Man, uh, I mean her recipes! She's a fellow Oklahoman and just a neat chick! Next week for my Easter dinner party I'm even making her awesome Burgundy Mushrooms! Yum!

Our first reading assignment was to read Chapter 1-5 and then discuss it today!

To be honest, I really wasn't going to buy this book. But I love those RHOK girls and you know I love P-Dub, so I got her to sign it and now I'm reading with the RHOK! I love reading Ree's words! She has such a fun style of writing and it really draws you in. It's like you're her BFF and she's sharing her personal little secrets with you!

I love following her travels from Bartlesville, Ok to Los Angeles, Ca and back where she meets her Marlboro Man (mmmhmmmm, remember him?!), falls in love, and begins a whole new life! Along the way, she breaks up with J, the boyfriend from CA, and has the challenge of deciding to continue on with her original plans to move to Chicago or stay and experience something as swoonworthy as Marlboro Man!

We leave off with her and the looming decision........

Ok, so ultimately we know what she ends up doing, but still.......who doesn't love a good love story?!

Until next time,

You make me smile, Amy!

Glad you decided to buy the book and read along with us.

I've got a chapter or two left to finish our assignment. I should get off the computer and get that done so I can contribute to the conversation. Ha!

I'm so glad you are joining us! If it weren't for this assignment, I probably wouldn't be reading it either. I love PW and her stories, but I was in the middle of a book already... and then another waiting in the wings.
