Giveaway #6


Merry Christmas blogging buddies! Tammy here from First Grade in Storybook Café. I hope everyone is winding down their days in school before your break and ready for some rest and relaxation. Here in the heartland of America it is WAY too warm and dry to feel like December, much less Christmas. This week I had my air conditioning on as we sang Christmas Carols and made Gingerbread houses. It just isn’t right. I left Arizona for a reason!

Well ok for those of you that don’t know me or my blog here is a little bit about the both of us. I live and teach first grade in a small rural community in north central Oklahoma known as the Osage. My blog is First Grade at Storybook Café.
I have been married to my best friend and love of my life for twenty seven years (which makes me sound really OLD but we were really young when we married haha). I love to read, cook, and gather my friends and family in my home as much as I can.

I have two amazing kids. Kanten, my son is twenty-three and a recent graduate of OSU (go Pokes). He now works for the USDA as a Rangeland specialist (no I do not know how to explain what that is). Hadley, my daughter is eighteen and a freshman at OSU this year (again go Pokes). She is working toward her degree in Wildlife Management (and nope can’t explain that either). They are both the very best part of me and their daddy all rolled up into two amazing kids young adults.

Two years ago I started blogging because I love to write, then I began discovering amazing teacher blogs and was pulled in by the warmth and kinship of all the wonderful teacher/bloggers. I can honestly say my teaching has expanded and grown in ways that never would have been possible within my small town. I love blogging and the world it has opened up to me.

Which leads me to my favorite thingI had a very hard time deciding what I could give away. I wanted it to be something good, useful, fun, and reflective of me. And then it meI’m sure you’ve all heard of Ree Drummond “The Pioneer Woman” well she lives in the same county I do (uhh no our paths have never crossed) and her cookbooks have some really great recipes, but more importantly they have some great photos of Osage county. 

So my Favorite Thing-cooking, eating, gathering friends and family, Osage county- and the new cookbook by Ree Drummond-The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier.

I hope you like it and enjoy seeing parts of northern Oklahoma.
