Get Your Pink On

Scroll down for more recent posts, please :D

***Sticky post/ Giveaway!***
I'm sure you are seeing lots of sites and blogs across the 'sphere going pink. What's all the fuss, you wonder? If you don't know already, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It doesn't matter what part of the world you are in, breast awareness is so important.

There are many sites you can check out and support, I happened to sign up for Blogger Talk and they sent me an email about Pink for October. Friday I told you about Feel Your Boobies, another site that I had found last week promoting breast awareness and self exams, AND National Feel Your Boobies Week is October 12-19. Also as you guys know I started Frisk the 15th a few months ago.

There is the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is one of the most informative sites out there- not to mention the fact that they are the leading foundation for research, survivors and activists.

To encourage participation across the net I have decided to hold a little giveaway. Please leave your link below if you are participating in Pink for October. My birthday was on the 4th and I decided that for my birthday I would like to donate to The Komen foundation, so ... the first 5 bloggers that went Pink and left their link in the linky below, were:

Mama Lee
Comedy Plus

And they are getting a set of the
Susan G. Komen for the Cure Exclusive Promise Rings! Thanks for participating everyone. :)

Even if you aren't one of the first 5, please leave a link. I'd still love to see your blogs. So get going, and go PINK! :D

ALSO, I just found out about another giveaway at Slackermommy's Pink for October post. To enter her giveaway all you have to do is to join in on the Pink for October project, then leave you your link in her Mr. Linky. The prize? A pink digital picture key chain. I want it!

I went pink as well! Nicely done!

I LOVE the tree! So pretty!

Just an FYI... I found you going through the list on Pink for October!


- Side note: Same b-day as my little girl who is turning 4! Hope you have a lovely day and love your b-day treats as much as she will adore her Ariel Cake.

What a great idea for a giveaway. I'd like to add more pink to my site but I don't know how well it would go with my beach theme. :-(

slackermommy said...

Rock on, girl! I'm going pink. I know one too many women with breast cancer.

I won't forget your birthday since it's my wedding anniversary.

Sunshine said...

I'm going to add the pink button...(my template is the old kind and I can't change the color without redoing all the code and I don't know how to do that, do you know of a pink template code I can plug in there?) but I will be observing Breast Cancer awareness, my best friend (and older daughter's godmother) is a 4-year survivor, so I'll be talking the PINK!!!

Very well done. :)

Rose said...

Thank you for the linking love back to

I too went pink and I love your header.

Kristin said...

I love your site. I found it through BloggerTalk. When I heard that Rose was promoting pink for October, I just had to do it too. I'm in pink-envy over your header design, though. Too cool.
I'm also a SAHM just re-entering the workforce. Quite a shock after being at home for 12 years. I love what I do, though, and it's flexible enough to work for my kids' schedules. Good luck with the positive thinking!

Hey Mert, I'm adding a badge to my sidebar...if I knew how to make my blog pink, I would, but I think the badge will communicate my thoughts :).

I'm in the middle of writing a follow-up to my "Race for the Cure" post now.

Thanks for all you do to encourage awareness!

Amanda said...

I have gone pink! Check me out!

Summer said...

Found you through Slacker Mom.
I put my pink on two days ago and just now added your button to my site. What a great idea!

Jessi said...

You've led me to go pink, too!

I am so glad to see so many bloggers participating in the Breast Cancer Awareness month! :)

Besides going pink, I will also try to create and spread the awareness on breast cancer throughout the month.

Melissa said...

I went pink too! By the way, hi! I'm Missy and I found you through Michelle. :)

Dana said...

I went pink! Love your Frisk the 15th!

Jean said...

Happy Birthday tomorrow! Mines today and I went pink for October too!

Dorky Dad said...

I'm not participating. My blog isn't pink. But thanks for all you do about this!


TwistedPlot said...

I just heard about the campaign so I've gone pink too! And by the way, I LOVE your header!

Julie said...

I've always been pink so I don't know if that counts. But I have a great WW for today in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Great blog here dear.

Sunshine said...

I had to reconfigure my entire blog but I'm all pinkified now!
