Giveaway!

I have here an extra copy of "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels", Ree Drummond's latest book.  I want to share the love and see that one of you gets this book.  It'll be something to help pass the time on these cold, snowy winter days.  Unless, like my sister, you live in south Texas.  Or Florida.  In that case, it's something you can read while you lie on the beach getting a tan.  
Did you know that the readers of the Pioneer Woman blog helped choose the title for this book?  Yep, Ree had several ideas for a title back when she started telling this love story on her blog; she took a poll of her readers to find out which we liked best.  I voted for "Black Heels".  


Ree autographed the book.  

To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment telling me someplace you'd visit right now if the airplane tickets were free.  I allow anonymous comments on my blog, but if you have trouble with that, email me at mosie1944@gmail.com with your entry.   I'll write down the names (or email addresses), put them in a hat, and have Cliff draw.  Let's end this contest at midnight Sunday; we'll find out the winner when Cliff wakes up on Monday morning.  


If you're like Cliff and really don't want to go anyplace, that's OK.  Leave any kind of comment as long as it's a nice one.


Where would I visit if I had the chance?  Hawaii, I think; if I couldn't do that, I'd go visit my sister in Texas.   Today it's supposed to get up to 74 there; tomorrow a cold front will affect that area, so the high will only be 54; but I'm sure it'll warm back up in a day or two.  It always does.  


I would ask that relatives not enter this giveaway because if one of them won, it would look a little fishy.  Besides, when I'm done reading my own copy, I'll pass it around the family to anyone who's interested.  


Ree will be going on a book-signing trip again; you'll find the schedule HERE.  So far, Kansas City isn't on the list.

I'd love to see Alaska & Colorado! Although I wouldn't fly because I'm terrified of heights! If money was no object I'd be heading out.

I bought her cookbook after hearing you talk about it! I love it!

I'd love to go to Hawaii.. If not then go to Tennessee to see my son.. If not there. Some where local, just me and my hubby. This year will be our 20th wedding Anniversary, so i was thinking of maybe going to Marineland this year ( in St Augustine, FL ) and swimming with the dolphins. He and i both love animals and this would be something special just for us. Plus a hotel room for a night or 2, oh and i would like for us to get a massage together to. Let me stop there...lol
It's supposed to be 73 here today in North Florida. But i can tell ya from experience, It's still chilly at the beach even at this temperature to lay out in the sun this time of the year.. Although i'm ready for that kind of bathing suit weather that's for sure. I'm not a winter person.

Hummmmmmm....being from Florida....i'd have to say .."been there...done that".....maybe the wine country of California.....a balloon ride of the vines at sunset....hummmmmmm....sounds better than the snowy mix outside right now!!!

We are expecting a hard freeze here in S.E. TX. so we have been running around trying to winterize before it hits this afternoon. All we need is icy roads, then it is demolishion derby time.
I would like to go to one of the islands. Walk the beach and dream.

Hello Donna.

I would LOVE to go to Tuscany. Under The Tuscan Sun is one of my favorite movies. I have always had a fear of flying till I got into my 50s. Now I would fly there if I could.

I would go to Maryland and see my son. Karen

Lori said...

Someday I plan to make an extended visit to the British Isles, spending a lot of time in Ireland especially.

Amy said...

in the U.S., I'd go to Maine. Then 2nd on my list would be some little beach town in Mexico, and 3rd...the UK.

wow...there's a big difference in all of those places, huh?!

small farm girl said...

I think it would depend on what time of year it is. Right now, I want some place warm. lol

Ora said...

I want this book....and the free tickets to anywhere...which for me (and my hubby) would be to Scotland...this is the beginnings of the Carmichael Clan...there is even a Carmichael, Scotland...where the family originated....we have gone once years ago...be nice to go again..and as I have several online friends there and in England...what fun to track them down...LOL...love and hugs...Ora in KY where it is a balmy sunny 56 degrees today...awesome...however!!!!!

krueth said...

Oh gosh...I check on Pioneer Woman every day :-) Watched her this morning on the Today Show making her marinated steak and cheesy noodles!! Mmm! Where to go?? Hmm..I would love to tour the United States and see Niagra Falls, and DC and then go see The Black Hills, Yellowstone, Yosemite, The Grand Canyon, and see the huge redwoods on the Coast..I have not been many places so would LOVE to see the U.S. Thanks for the Giveaway. I found your site through Ree's I think, and am enjoying reading about your life! Wendy

Although it was -17 in Montana this morning, that is where I'd go! - New Mexico

TARYTERRE said...

I just put this book on my to buy list, but an autographed copy would be even better. If I had free plane tickets to anywhere, I would go to Pitcarin Island. Been longing to do it since I was a kid.

Anita said...

I saw her on the Food Channel. Was it a throwdown with Bobby Flay? What a fun personality she has. I'd love to win the book and read it.

Let's see...hmmm...Aruba should be nice right now.

Lindie said...

Ever since I saw Oprah's show last week about the happiest place in the US, I've been wanting to go there. San Luis Obisbo, CA, But Hawaii or south Florida would be nice too. Anywhere but here! I'm cold!

Sheila said...

A nice tropical island, not too crowded, with the beautiful crystal clear water...was able to go to England once with Hubby's work when my oldest was about 18 months old, and where we decided to have a second child...would love to take them both over there to see it...maybe a side trip to Ireland. Take care, Sheila

Southern Gal said...

I would love to travel through areas of India. Wishes are wishes though. I will be planted in the good ole USA.

Nita said...

I'd like to throw my name in the hat even tho I read the book as she wrote it. An autographed copy would be so nice. It's been fun watching her grow so to speak. Nice give away...

If airline tickets were free? I'd still have to drive. Don't trust that many people with my life anymore....haha

Sonya said...

Oh wow, I would love to open my Island magazine and just pick any spot. lol This magazine helps me with my constant need to be near ocean and sand. The latest article I read was about Antigua. George has been there and wants to go back. Warm and tropical with mopeds to ride about the island. He said it was not Americanized and that would be fun to see what life is like. I have never been on a moped but willing to learn. lol So many places to visit that looks enticing. I didn't realize Ree had this book out. That is awesome. She is something else! I finally got the cookbook.

Nancy said...

I'd love to go to Alaska . . . but in the summertime! I went to Ree's last book signing when she was in Kansas City and I was disappointed too that she wasn't coming here this time. I even thought about driving to Ponca City for her session there.

Rosie said...

I would love to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is a great giveaway.. I love the Pioneer Woman! I've been reading her blog for awhile now and would love to read this latest book. Please count me in!

Janet said...

PW rocks!! I believe that is how I found your blog, Donna. From a comment you made on PW's.

I would love to go on a cross country tour of the USA and stop along the way to meet/visit the wonderful friends I've made via the internet. And I'd love to visit Bodie, CA (ghost town of a mining town) and take my grandson named Bodie along.

I would go to Louisiana to see my sweet Mommy! I miss her so much and she is heartbroken over me being sick and not being able to be here!

Dee said...

I'd love to go to Utah to see my sister-in-law who has been in Iraq for the last 9 months. She's coming home in a couple weeks and we've missed her so much! Of course, Hawaii would be nice too!

Kathy said...

I have a list of places a mile long I'd like to visit! Especially if the tickets were free and I could leave Right.Now.!
First up is Montana or Wyoming. Now, I know it's winter, but I think a ranch in winter, can be as interesting as a ranch in summer.
Second in line would be a walking tour of Scotland. Yep. Walking.

Nice idea, your give-a-way. Thanks for the opportunity!

If I could travel near or far
Honest to goodness
I'd go where you are
Right in the Heart of it all
Enjoying the weather
Winter through fall
Morrels and river bottoms
Soy fields, a cabin,
homecookin' too
Why would anyone not want
to visit you?

Marlene said...

Hi Donna, Well,I have never been on a plane. Am I the last holdout? It's not the flying that I don"t like, it's the FALLING. But if I had the chance, I would like to see some of the large Cathedrals around this ole country of ours.

Mrs. L said...

I love to fly. I have dreams about flying without a plane!!!! If I were to choose a destination for my free trip, it would be Hong Kong, not because I am dying to spend Chinese New Year's there -- although a two week celebration can't be all bad -- but I'd like to see my daughter and son-in-law. And see what it feels like to be a tall American woman in another culture's city. [My 6'0" daughter gets a lot of stares.]

Julia said...

I would actually fly out to Springfield and head down to Tablerock lake, of course stopping at Bass Pro where my husband considers it a house of worship.

I do not have a blog ...however I really enjoy your blog and my choice would be to go to Hawaii for sure, so I could be warm again... lol...this winter has been a really cold one !! Is sweet of you to have this give away. I also love Pioneer Woman too.
