I have decided to implement two new features on the blog.
The first is Just Ask Alice.
You will hear more about this one later.
But, somebody told me that I should write an advice column.
And I am going to start taking questions.
How fun is that?
About as fun as this picture of the beautiful Jada.
The second new implement is the Guest Post.
My friend Donna was kind enough to be my first.
Jada is Donna's beautiful daughter.
You always got my back.
Donna is the first because she is
the most hilarious person I know.
We once talked about starting our own blog together.
We were going to name it
"Raising @#!*% at the Rose Home."
That's because we were
the life of the party at
our Bishop's house
a couple of years ago.
We are so inappropriate.
We are most definitely
not your typical Mormon wives.
God bless our husbands.
I love reading about people.
I love hearing their stories.
So, Donna was kind enough
to write part of her life story.
I asked her to share a funny one.
I found it very odd that she chose a birthing story.
Because she is the most adamant supporter
of women getting lives.
And not wasting girls night out with
diaper changing horrors,
shoe collection comparison.
(We all know that she would win anyway)
Donna and I
are kindred spirits.
we go straight for the kill
with topics like
(like so many Knoxvillians lack)
I miss Donna.
She moved to New York.
She has a great blog,
with lots of recipes.
I don't think she could ever recover
when her dog Charlie died.
She had to get out of state.
The Parvo is bad.
We loved Charlie.
I am glad I got some pictures of him.
My only regret with Donna's guest post,
is that you can't hear her tell you the story in person.
I have her voice imprinted in my eardrum.
It's saying things like:
For sure. No doubt. Charlie!!! No not Charlie!!!
It's about when her son Miles was born.
And the picture to go with it.
This picture is so much better to look at
after reading the story.
Donna told me to make sure to tell you
the parts she originally forgot:
