"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's Pink Saturday! and What a Week it Has Been...

Whew!! October First...The beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Very Special for Me...In fact, not only do I have a lot to do leading up to our race, but I have a couple of things being shared..My story, for one...I have been featured on The FB page
 A-Crown-for-the-Cure as the survivor of the month for September...My story is over there...(I will also be a guest blogger for another blog to share my story, more on that another time) Mrs. Maryland runs that page and she also happens to be part of my Survivor committee for the Maryland RFTC. We are meeting at her house later today in order to work on the decorations for the tent and to have an authentic Italian dinner...Her parents are from Italy...
As far as the rest of the week? Any baseball fans out there? Did anyone pay attention to Wednesday night??? Wow! All those games happening simultaneously and all of them ending with outcomes that could not have been predicted! Great baseball and never to be repeated...Quite likely, the best night of baseball yet played! Good stuff! My Orioles played a big part...haha...
So anyway...breast cancer month plays a big part in my pink Saturday this week...I have two pictures to share...Every year Brighton comes out with a Power of Pink Breast Cancer Bracelet. This year's bracelet looks like this...
They show the two sides of the heart...the first bracelet came out in 2003...Of course I have them all...I love them...Sometimes they have extras..meaning other products also...I usually have it on hold and when it comes in they call me...the call came during a race executive committee meeting...so after the meeting and before dinner afterward, I ran over and picked it up...and lo and behold, there was another item...

Isn't it lovely?...sorry for the lousy shot...
Only one problem...there is a gorgeous purse that matches it...I really want that purse...it costs $270.00! I can't do it...someone would disown me...so... I am not proud, I will accept any and all donations...lol...
So those are my PS Pictures...I love this time of year!! Pink, Pink, everywhere!!
I am sure that I will be posting more about BC this month so stay tuned...

  1. I love Saturdays, lots of Pinktastic stuff to see. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pink!

    My Pink is here, hope you can come by and see. Have a great week weekend!

  2. Pink Saturday is full of surprises. Coming here and being able to go over and see your story on the FB page is one of them. Hope your weekend and the month of helping make others aware is good.

  3. Happy Belated Pink Saturday! I have to go pick up my bracelet today. hahaha While I am there I will pick up 2 pink bags 1 for me and 1 for you!! lol Are they kidding with the price? How many will they sell? I can not wait till it goes to the outlet or on sale. I was in Las Vegas one year and bought a bag that wss in the store for $300. for $89. Ugh...I really want this...Grace xoox

  4. I think that purses it totaly worth it Miss Kim. Yearn away.

  5. I really wish these people would price these things for the average survivor...sigh...

  6. Great post. Here's the link to your guest post.

  7. Hi Debra, your story is remarkable. I was reading your guest post on High Heels and Hot Flashes. I was wondering, especially since it's BC awareness month if you'd mind coming over to Mom Blog Society and spreading the importance of self examination? As you well know, it could save a life. You were only 36, most women that age do not realized they can get BC so young. Hope to see you on MBS. http://momblogsociety.com
