So I was racking my brain for the perfect costume this year and at first I was like OMG I should be Kate Middleton – but realized that would be a real stretch as we only have shopping and brown hair in common and I’m not sure I could get in complete character or sleep with Price William. Ever. Harry. For sure. But if I went as Harry’s girlfriend, no one would know who I was. Not even Harry.
And Kim Kardashian announced her divorce too late today for me to whip up a costume of the “happy” couple.. So then I was like – well I’m a blogger and a mom – I should go as a mom blogger – which basically meant dressing up as myself..which I do every year and every year my kids know exactly who I am. They are brilliant like that. So I thought – no, a famous mom blogger like maybe The Bloggess! but that would be a huge stretch because I don’t have any taxidermy animals and I’ve never formed a cause to help kittens and I cannot stand bathrooms, so I thought DOOCE – yes – but to like grow 10″ in one day and get a cute haircut and buy a huge cool house would take a lot of doing and my kids would totally not know who I was and they would be concerned…

Ree has written a cookbook – I have cooked recipes from her cookbook.
She lives on a sprawling ranch in Oklahoma – OMG I have driven by ranches in Oklahoma.
She homeschools her children – I’ve met people here who homeschool.
And then it got really freaky when I realized that Ree is 42 and I am 42 AND we both own Lucchese boots AND we both do laundry – I mean we have so much in common it’s almost like we are twinsies.
Do you think she would be my twinsie? I was mistaken for her one time..that time The Pioneer Woman signed my
And so I went home and
set-up drove around my Fisher Price Little People Collection Ranch, put on my best peasant blouse and rounded up my stuffed real basset hounds and looked in the mirror and said “OMG yes – I really am almost, sort of, kind of, in a round about, strange stalker way because I really love her more than my butter…JUST LIKE REE The Pioneer Woman?”
