The Pioneer Woman

If you're into reading blogs, I'm sure you've heard of The Pioneer Woman. And if you haven't, you must be living under a rock. Or photography, cooking, and romantic love stories about cowboys and city girls just arn't your thing. I'm huge fan personally, I own both her cookbook and Black Heels and Tractor Wheels, and my favorite part of her website is her photography section. Every few weeks she has a photo assignment and I almost always sift through my pictures on Flickr to find one that might be good enough to be featured on her website.

Earlier this week she posted a new assignment. Horses. At first I thought to myself, as much as I love horses and miss my younger days when I wasn't allergic to them and could ride them, I don't have any pictures of horses. Heck, I live in Los Angeles, why would I have a picture of a horse.

But then I remembered my trip to Mammoth this past summer. I remembered our little detour into Yosemite. I remembered our quest to find a restroom which led us to parking next to some horse stables. And then I remembered one of my favorite pictures of two horses pulling at each other. So I headed on over to Flickr, found the photo and submitted it. As usual I figured there was no way my photo would get picked with how many hundreds of people enter.

And then yesterday while sitting at a restaurant, I checked my Facebook on my phone and saw that Ree (aka The Pioneer Woman) had posted a link to the first group of her favorites. So I clicked on over, like I usually do, to see if my photo was good enough to get featured.

As I scrolled down, I saw something familiar. Wait a minute. That's my photo!

You can ask my sister in law. I literally froze and stopped listening to what she was trying to say to me. And then I had to attempt to explain that a blogger who I love who has millions of followers just put my picture, little old me, on her blog for the world to see.

Ya, I'm just a little excited!

Now go on over there and tell her how much you love the photo and maybe I could win something shiny and fun (her words not mine!)!
