My dear friend Anne Polta!
Here was Anne's "mom" advice that was shared on the ShelleyBakes page on Facebook:
"My favorite mom story? Hm. One of her pieces of advice was 'never buy chicken on Monday.' When I attended Linda's bridal shower several years ago, we were asked to share advice from our mothers, so that's what I shared... and everyone was just screaming with laughter. But guess what... I do not buy chicken on Monday, ever."
Just a little side note ... I've known Anne since I worked as a rookie reporter in Willmar and she is very dear to me. Not only did she put up with me when I was a young(er) punk, she is also my beloved cat's "godmother" of sorts. Ten years ago when the Cat came into my life, she's the person I turned to for advice. She is a great mom to kids of the four-legged variety. :)
AND ... she's a blogger. You can find her blog "HealthBeat" here.
Thanks to all who commented! I really appreciate it!
