Unbelievable. I mean it, in the truest sense of the word.
un⋅be⋅liev⋅a⋅ble – adjective
1. too dubious or improbable to be believed.
2. so remarkable as to strain credulity; extraordinary.
For this occasion, I’m going with definition number 2: “so remarkable as to strain credulity; extraordinary.”
So here it is.
I won a contest.
A contest I really, REALLY wanted to win.
The prize is an opportunity to meet someone. To hang out at this person’s house for the afternoon. To do some cooking. With her.
And I won. I am going to meet this phenomenally talented woman.
That would be this Tuesday.
I am so excited. In fact, in my excitement, I chipped my tooth on my coffee cup. Not lying.
My front tooth.
Anyone want to hazard a guess who I am going to get to meet?

I have no clue, but I am so very happy for you…and look at the bright side…you are giving your dentist his own version of a “stimulus package”…(sorry, I couldn’t resist – blame it on the fire)…
Thrilled for you though, seriously, so do tell…and while I’m thinking about it, you really love the mysteries, don’t ya? You think all us old people have nothin else to do but sit around waitin to see what mystery you have up your sleeve this week…actually you’re right and I will be hitting my refresh button until you tell…and let me guess you’ll be telling on Tuesday – argh…
The Morris Family says
Pioneer Woman- You lucky lucky duck, you!…mmmmm-cake pops!
you are so clever… love it!
Happy Happy Day!!!
My vote is Paula Deen.
My guess is Pioneer Woman. You are soooo lucky, she rocks! I tried her dinner roll recipie last night. I must say they are the BEST rolls I have ever made.. I ate three…but I wanted more.
I have to venture a guess- I am really bad at this- how about Rachel Ray??
I am looking forward to finding out!! Sorry to hear about your front tooth.
Tell us soon!!
Virginia and Doug says
You just loooove to keep people in suspense, don’t you? If it’s Paula Dean I’m going to be so jealous. I don’t have to patience to keep a secret for long which is why I already have pictures of our new addition up on our blog =) Gin
Wife of the Pres. says
I have no earthly idea! I am with MoM; you are not being *nice* to us! And I am not AS OLD as MoM but still … whassup with all the mysteries?!? :)))
Oh and sorry about your tooth. That sounds painful!
Pioneer woman? (the bold letters)… except I have no idea who that is, LOL! I’m just excited that you’re excited!
Oh, how fun is that?!? I am a big fan of hers, but I must say not for the cooking part. I wish I were as obsessed with my culinary skills as I were photography. I really should start checking out that part of her site.
That’s SO exciting for you…..but you’ll have to fill me on on who pioneer woman is….I have no clue! 🙂 I hope it is everything you expect it to be!
Daisy Dreams says
You lucky duck!!! I entered the other contest she was having (for the camera) since I don’t live within driving distance. I can’t wait to see your blog post about your trip there!
Paula Dean??? Rachel Ray????? Giada??? did I get it…did I win??? Does that mean I won so I get to go with you since you won too???
OK spill who is it.
meggie (: says
Congrats on your win!
I was wondering if you minded me adding you to my favorite blogs? I’ve really enjoyed reading it.
I was chosen to go see Paula Deen IN April 08. It was awesome. I sat right behind her and was on national TV for an hour! But, not at her house!!!
I’m guessing Paula Deen because that’s who I would want to hang with.
THE NAKED CHEF
Our 7 Blessings from God says
It would have to be THE Pioneer Woman!!! How exciting!!!
So I am votin' Ree, Paula Dean, Martha Stewart OR That Kate Chick from John & Kate plus 8.
Does anyone else cook?????
Well you defintely wouldn't want it to be Kate from Jon&kate+8. She might make you move behind the island. But since you told us it is Pioneer Woman, I guess you are really happy! You deserve it!
I have no earthly idea. I rarely watch TV anymore! Who is Pioneer Woman? Boy do I need to get caught up!!
In any case, CONGRATS on your win! You deserve it after all you’d done for everyone else. Looking forward to reading all about it. 🙂
Sorry about your tooth though. Not fun. Not fun at all.
Oh my gosh! You get to meet PW!
Happy Campers says
HOW FUN!!! I love PW!!!
Team Houston says
Steven Curtis Chapman?
I’m sure Pioneer Woman is correct, but I have no idea who she is…lol!!!
Congrats on your win. You sound over the moon about it. Can’t wait to read all about it on Tue.
I want to know HOW this chick home schools, looks cute, cooks, cleans, the whole nine yards. I barely get my teeth brushed ONCE a day, seriously. Well, and yeah, she is a great photographer. How, I ask? How???
Pioneer Woman, you bum! Jealous, jealous, jealous.
I am so jealous. When I read her post today and there are only like 4 of you!! I was so thinking this would be quite the opportunity. We expect to hear all about it. everything!
Table for Six says
I am thinking Food Network (is there any other channel??)hhmmm
my first guess is Rachel Ray.. but looking at the other post.. I suppose I am going to go with Pioneer Woman! hahahah
Sheri- your comment was hilarious! and true :O)
No WAY! You won the PW cake pop bonanza? That is so cool. If I didn’t live in Ohio, I would have entered.
We’ll want a full report!
You chipped your tooth?!!! Ok, that is some big excitement. Who could it be?
One Happy Momma says
I was going to guess Rachel Ray?
Congratulations on winning!
Can’t wait to find out who it is. 🙂
oh no….just when I thought I was going to have a relaxing weekend and you are keeping me on pins and needles again….FOR SHAME, GIRL!!
Ante up THIS MINUTE!
Ummmm…DID YOU WIN THE PW CONTEST???? I WANTED TO WIN TOOOOO!!!!!!!! SUE ME–I’M JEALOUS!!!! TAKE LOTS O PICS!!!
oh man, did you win the PW thing? NO WAY!!!! She is just hilarious, I can’t imagine getting to hang out in her kitchen!
Talk up adoption to her … did you read when her husband and daughters went on the mission trip? Just that one picture of her husband and the little girl (I think it was taken in a church maybe) … just made me wonder if they would ever consider adoption.

Kay Bratt says
I don’t know but don’t leave us hanging! If is it Pioneer Woman, who is she?!
Burns Brood says
I knew it was pioneer woman because I thought of entering too but I have to work. Then I went back to your post and saw your clever way of putting the answer in your post! Very cool and have fun!
Amy Woods says
Rachael Ray was my first guess. But I see all of these people thinking its Paula Dean and that would totally rock too!!!
Sally- That Girl! says
Since my kitchen is being torn out right now, that would not be a good guess so I guess that Southern Cooking Gal.
You’re just too clever and creative for us! Who is Pioneer Woman? I guess I need to watch more cooking shows. Congratulations!
And please be careful with those oh so dangerous, tooth chipping coffee cups!
If you’ve never met Ree, check it out.
Ooooh, you clever girl, you! Love how you spelled out the answer in your post by bolding the letters!!
wow…what a contest & what a prize!! Looking forward to hearing ALL about it!!
