You have arrived if you inspire a barbie Doll!
Ree Drummond, star of the Food Network’s “Pioneer Woman” show has her own kitchenware line for Walmart, several cookbooks, and even her own Instant Pot. But now she has a new claim to fame: her own Barbie doll inspired by her. This version of the iconic doll has red hair just like Drummond and comes wearing jeans, boots, and a top to match her namesake, too.
But Barbie Pioneer Woman’s accessories have to be the best part. There’s a Kitchen Playset that comes with more than 30 tiny cooking-related things, like a toaster that pops up “toast” and a spinning mixer. And there’s a pasta accessory set, which includes a bowl of pasta, a cooking pot and a lovely floral apron, as well as a barbecue accessory set that comes with burgers, hot dogs, and such.
And while Drummond admits the Barbie doesn’t look exactly like her, except the red hair, she did help influence her wardrobe. The first time she saw her doll, she was wearing sneakers and a T-shirt, which isn’t very “Pioneer Woman,” so tweaks were made to dress her in jeans and boots like Drummond wears. She also spent a year and a half getting the details of each item in the sets just right. And her favorite piece? The little black, cast-iron skillet.
A first day at work to remember!
Everyone knows what it’s like to have the first-day jitters at a new job, but one anonymous woman’s first-day-of-work story posted to Reddit really takes the cake. For her “how I effed up” story on the site, she explained how she got a restaurant surrounded by cops on her first day.
The story goes that she was being trained by her colleague, but they forgot to tell her about one important thing before leaving her to her own devices at the front desk – the mysterious 911 button. With nothing to do, she got bored and started fiddling with things on the desk, like a pen, a clipboard, crayons, et cetera. That’s when her fidgety hands found a large button next to a bunch of wires, so she pressed it… 348 times in two minutes.
Soon, manager confronted her along with a police officer, which is when they broke the news to her about the button. But it wasn’t just one officer – outside, police had surrounded the place ready to catch a robbery or shooting in progress. To be fair, she says the button looked unassuming, since it wasn’t bright red or labeled. Check out the full post HERE.
