So I am cool by association...Right?

I have this cousin, Lauren. She's pretty cool. She lives in OKC, (that would be Oklahoma City, for those of you not in the "know" :) She and her sweet husband Will live a fun life, that I won't lie, Jason and I are sometimes slightly jealous of! I mean, we love our life, but sometimes miss the days of packing ONE bag for a spur of the moment trip. Now we plan for months, and pack 6 bags to go away for a weekend!

But now, now I am REALLY jealous! Because Lauren got to go to a PIONEER WOMAN BOOK SIGNING yesterday! And not only did she get to go, but now Miss Lauren is FAMOUS on the PW blog!

Seriously! In THESE pictures, my sweet cousin Lauren is in the adorable bright green sweater! She is with a bunch of other adorable girls. Did you see them LAUGHING with the PW? They are totally bff's now! :)

Oh Lauren. I have taught you well, have I not? I have not steered you wrong my sweet younger cousin! All those nights of holiday sleepovers, when we laid in bed and I told you all my stories, all of my advice, all of my wisdom...they have served you well!

Can you tell I am totally taking credit for Lauren's coolness? Yes, I am. Because I can. Because it was on THIS trip with my sweet cousins a couple of years ago, that I told them about The Pioneer Woman, and her blog. And now look what happened!

Love ya Lauren! Wish I could have been there! I can't wait until Christmas! :)

The first thing I said to Josh after seeing Lauren's post about becoming famous was, "Oooo Shelley is going to be so jealous! I mean, she WAS the one who introduced us to her!"

All your words of wisdom have paid off. I would TOTALLY take credit if I were you Shell!!
