The Princess Guide: Thankful Thursday

So.... Today is Thankful Thursday, and while I'm extremely thankful for my new hardwood floors (had to include them in today's picture), I'm also very thankful for our friends over at Mitsubishi Forklift of Houston. 

Those guys ROCK. 

For the last few years, they have come up with several different ways to promote breast cancer awareness -- especially in men.  And it all started with an email that went something like, "We'd like to paint a forklift pink. Can you help us?"  We did help, and the "Real Men Drive Pink" campaign was born!

Their support has continued, and their latest effort includes these way cool pink trash cans.  Don't you need one?  Or one of each of the THREE sizes they come in??

Kick Breast Cancer to the Curb
These pink rolling trash carts serve two purposes. The first is that for each cart you purchase, $5.00 will be donated to Team Tiara.  $5 will also be donated to the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer awareness initiatives.

Second, Pink Carts make an unmistakably bold statement about their owner’s passion for ending breast cancer. These carts catch your eye, and they remind women to schedule regular exams so that they can find breast cancer early when they have the best chance of beating it through treatment. Pink Carts can help raise awareness and save lives in our community.
Sizes and pricing are listed below:
35 Gallon: $50.00 + tax
64 Gallon: $60.00 + tax
96 Gallon: $80.00 + tax
Contact Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks of Houston to purchase one today! 713-365-7600 or

Now.... With all the floor craziness around here yesterday, I forgot to do "You Knew Me When" Wednesday!  So, without further adieu, here is "You Knew Me When" Wednesday Thursday.
