The book signing was at the King's English bookshop in Sugarhouse. I'd never been, but it's quite the charming little place. Ree (calling her by her first name since now we're bff's--lol) did a Q&A at the beginning and she was just as beautiful and funny as I'd hoped. She actually walked right past me on her way out of the room. She saw I was taking a picture (the first one I posted) and paused for me and said, "Photoshop me!" which I thought was hilarious.
It took quite awhile to get my cookbook signed, but I'm so glad I went. When it was actually my turn I was almost tongue tied. I can't even remember what we talked about, but she was extremely friendly and classy. It was a lot of fun to meet her and judging from what I've been able to read so far, the cookbook looks like it is going to be one of my favorites. I'm very grateful Sean was a good sport and kept me company in SLC while waiting for my group to be called to get the book signed.
If anyone is interested, I have a link to her blog under "favorite sites" on the right. Isn't she pretty? She and Paula Deen are my make-believe real friends.
