The RHOK Reads - The Pioneer Woman - Week 3

The RHOK

This week we've been reading Part 2 of Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman.

I really loved these chapters.  Ree's inner dialogue is still one of my favorite things about this book.

I loved the part in Chapter 10 where she was at MM's cousin's wedding.  She was wearing a butter colored wool suit...in the summer...in Oklahoma.

Now, all of us good Okie girls know that wool and humidity do NOT mix.

I'm thinking Ree's desire to find the perfect outfit overshadowed her better judgement in fabric choices.

When she's standing stripped down in the bathroom at MM's grandparent's house, and MM comes looking for her and decides to wait for her outside the bathroom...and then Tim shows up...and she begins her silent prayer, I died laughing.

"Lord, please take me now.  I no longer want to be here.  I want to be in heaven with you, where there's zero humidity and people aren't punished for their poor fabric choices." 

Absolutely hilarious.  Have you ever had an experience like that?

Ree's tip: vodka + orange juice = truth serum.

Through the next chapter or so, we get a glimpse into the daily happenings between Ree and the MM.  They cook dinners, watch movies, and take long drives around the countryside. 

What is up with the bra-and-panty wearing grandma mowing her lawn??!!

The next thing we know, MM nonchalantly stops in the front yard and says "Oh, hey...by the way, wanna get married?"

Ree goes over all the things that implies...married women have short hair and get it "fixed" at the beauty shop...and make casseroles...and wear yellow gloves to do the dishes.  She thinks about it for a few more minutes and then just as nonchalantly says "yep"...in true Oklahoma fashion.

I guess I was waiting on some passionate-romantic-at-sunset-out-on-the-ranch-kind-of-proposal, but that'll work too. :)

What did you think of the proposal?

Feel free to discuss any of the questions I've brought up...or go off on your own tangents...that's fine too.  Remember comments and blog posts (that are linked up) count towards a Pioneer Woman Giveaway!

Let's read Part 3 for next week, shall we?!  Sounds good.  See ya then!!
