Pretty in Pink (save the ta-tas)

My friend Reb over at Sibu Pegasus Power just gifted me with this award:

But of much greater importance, Reb reminded me that it is October 1st…therefore, it is most certainly October, and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And while I am not overly fond of pink –I’m a longtime fan of the color blue— I am more than willing to change my blog to a pink theme if it will remind myself and my readers* about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (In the Bible, when things are repeated like that, it is a way to get the reader to sit up and take notice: Hey!! This is important!! I thought I’d try it here. But it might just be annoying when I do it.)

Anyhoo, because Reb suggested it, I am changing my blog to a PINK theme for the month of October, to remind myself and my readers* that it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

*oh my goodness, that is so awesome to write!!! I have READERS, people!! The thought humbles me and excites me at the same time. The exciting part makes me tingle down to my toes and makes my heart pitter-pat; the humbling part warms my heart…because I don’t really think of y’all as readers — I think of you as FRIENDS.

Reb is a breast cancer survivor. Every Monday, Reb takes her readers on a computer-chair tour of her town. Her photography gets better and better every week! Not only does Reb have an amazing positive attitude, she is also a loving sister to The Bag Lady and “staff” to a beautiful Himalayan named “Sibu.”

In honor of Reb, I would like to pass this award to bloggers who have some things in common with her.
It was tough to choose!!! Still, it had to be done…so I am passing this award on to the following bloggers:

  • to Farmer*sWife at Glass Half Full Gal, for her optmistic take on life
  • to Hilary at The Smitten Image where she humbly shares her gorgeous photographs (like Reb, Hilary is Canadian)
  • to Mary Alice at From the Frontlines. She loves her sisters and has a “save the ta-tas” button on her blog!

How cool is that? I hope she doesn’t mind, I just totally lifted this from her blog!

Women, PLEASE please PLEASE make sure you are up-to-date on your medical appointments, especially THAT one!
Men, please gently remind the women in your life to take care of themselves by keeping those appointments.

  1. Thank you – you sweet thing…you are most welcome to steal my Save The TaTas button. I personally stole it from the Save The Tatas site!

    Soooooo important to keep up with the routine mammagrams and montly checks….my best friend caught her breast cancer on a routine mamagram last May….an appointment she almost had canceled because she was just so busy that month. I’m so glad she kept that appointment.

    No go forth and feel up your ta-tas every month because people love you and depend on you. Self care is a must.

  2. squeeeeeeee! Thank you thank you Gal!! My Mom actually had breast cancer. It was the non-life threatening type as they were able to remove all the lumps and that was the end of it. Of course, she had formerly been a size D cup or larger — and, now she’s an A.

    But, she IS and she IS an A!

    Happy Hump-Diggity Day!

  3. TATAS yeah yeah!
    Oh, like the new look, yes I do, very sharp KC!

  4. Love the tribute. I’ll have to remember to do that in my next post.

  5. Wow! Thank you for the very kind words and for helping to spread the awareness. I think the pink looks very good on you and I’m not much of a fan of it either, but you do what needs to be done! You are awesome and totally deserve the award!

  6. I don’t read Reb, but I did see this another blog and I went pick today also.

  7. KC.. you’re too sweet. Thanks so much for passing that award along to me. I’ll have to check out Mary Alice and Farmer’s Wife. I already know that Reb is top notch.. as are you. Thanks muchly. 🙂

  8. I forgot to mention that I LUUUUUV your new color scheme! [Having just changed from pink myself, and all]. No, seriously! It’s all bright and perky! It says, “READ ME! READ ME NOW! YOU KNOW YOU WANNA’!


  9. You, my dear, are blessed.

  11. haha, i LOVE the “save the tatas” slogan!

    another blogger, Raven is walking in the Avon Boobie Walk this weekend! i donated to her fund… such a good cause.

  12. I love your pink theme! You are right about how when things are mentioned repeatedly or recurr,it is a sign for us to take notice and heed the message. I always look for that.
