The Princess Guide: Pink It Out!!!

Tonight is Waller Pink Out, and I am sooooooo jazzed!!!

If you're anywhere near Waller, Texas, I highly recommend you head over there tonight for a Pink Out Extravaganza!!!

I have to tell you, though, my Pink Heart is heavy today.  Sweet Bridget of My Big Girl Pants posted some tough-to-swallow news today. 

Bridget is fighting for her life -- at 28.  In the world of Pink Warriors, she's one of the strongest women I know of. 

I read Bridget's post while waiting to grab the Bigglets from school. And while I sat there reading, with big, fat tears in my eyes, all I could think was that I wish I'd walked in Boston this year.  I wish I could have given her a huge hug.  Man.

But I'm right there with her on the whole Pink thing -- you know I am.  I love hearing how the boys on our middle school football team are wearing pink socks. I love hearing that the teachers at our school were Pinked Out yesterday.  I love hearing about all of it. 

The impact that Pink is making -- each and every day -- is HUGE.  These kids are growing up with an awareness that we didn't have growing up.  And awareness that will save lives on down the road.  I am so glad to be a part of that.  For my Mom, for myself, for my girls, for Bridget and for all four of you.

Update:  Here we are with our big PINK check from tonight!!! Many, many thanks to the students, teachers, administrators and parents from Waller High School who work to help us fund the CURE!!
