Even though woman all over Blogland quote The Pioneer Woman and her recipes continually, I had never even looked at her blog til recently.
I did however just finish her page turning book:
Loved it. Stayed up way too late several nights in a row because I couldn't put it down. Den kept saying things like, "Are you going to join me in bed anytime soon?" And with my eyes in the book, I kept saying, "Just a little bit more."
I have a question though.
Does Ree's husband, the Marlboro Man, always keep his face hidden?
Is he sort of like Wilson from Home Improvement?
I have not read her entire blog by any means. Just a few posts. But so far I have yet to see a full on picture of her husband. Will I ever? Or is that just the way it is? Does anyone know? I'd rather know now than to keep looking for it.
One of my favorite quotes from this book:
"...Even though I was new at marriage, I still sensed that somehow---whether because of biology or societal conditioning or religious mandate or the position of the moon---it was I who was to be the cushion between Marlboro Man and the cruel, hard world. That it was I who'd needed to dust off his shoulders everyday. And though he didn't say it, I could tell that he felt better when I was bouncing along, chubby, and carrying his child, in his feed truck next to him."
