think pink

October is Breast Cancer awareness month. I couldn’t let the month end before I rocked something pink in honor of thousands of breast cancer survivors and the dozens of patients who I have personally watched fight a good fight yet pass away after a long courageous battle with the disease. I decided to wear this pink summer dress on my lunch date with JC on yesterday. It still feels like we are in the midst of summer here on the Gulf coast even though it’s almost November! It was 85 degrees yesterday! I’m starting to think Fall doesn’t exist in Houston.

JC treated me to lunch at the Grand Lux Cafe at the Galleria. I think he missed me since he was out-of-town on business all week. Of course I missed him dearly! We had a good time catching up and the food was divine.

Lunch is not complete without a pink lemonade 😉

My meal was extremely unhealthy. I had the Carolina BBQ pulled pork and fries. At least I ate a salad first :)

My meal was not the healthiest but it was delicious. I had the Carolina BBQ pulled pork and fries. At least I ate a salad first 🙂

Of course it’s great to think pink by dressing in pink and sipping on pink lemonade for the cause but it is far more important to check the tatas regularly for any lumps and bumps. Early detection is the key to winning the fight against breast cancer. Make sure you all remember to do regular self breast examinations monthly. Guys this goes for you as well. It’s a rare occurrence but men can get breast cancer too.

 

What did you do this weekend?  Hopefully you had a great one. Happy Monday!

    Brittany · 10/21/2014 at 3:51 pm

    Thank you Nancy! It’s so fun to get out and explore your surroundings. You sometimes find some gems in your own backyard.

kireilauriel · 10/21/2014 at 7:10 pm

Cute dress, and I like the pink theme for breast cancer awareness. <3 ( was the pink lemonade intentional?) 😉 My weekend was pretty chill.. a few social outings (a club night out, drinks, etc.) but I was secretly happy to rearrange things at home to make them neater and prettier, and work on the blog. 😉

    Lauriel sounds like you had a really fun weekend. The pink lemonade was totally not intentional 😉

Freely Fatima · 10/21/2014 at 8:48 pm

Love the dress and that pink lemonade looked delicious! We just walked at the annual breast cancer walk here this past weekend

    Brittany · 10/21/2014 at 9:10 pm

    That sounds like fun! I have always wanted to walk the 3 day Susan G Komen walk for the cure but 3 days in the Texas heat seems a little unbearable. Hope you had a great time 🙂

Corina · 10/21/2014 at 8:56 pm

Very cute dress! And mmm I’m a pink lemonade fan too.

    Brittany · 10/21/2014 at 9:11 pm

Fun little dress! Super cute color too!

livingstonshousefullofboys · 10/21/2014 at 11:46 pm

Love the dress! And thank you for doing your part to help raise awareness. Like many others, I too have lost too many to cancers and long for a day when a cure can be found.

    Brittany · 10/21/2014 at 11:51 pm

    Amen to that! I believe advances in medicine are getting us closer to a cure. Its only a matter of time.

Katie Matthews (@XKatieMatthewsX) · 10/22/2014 at 3:13 am

You look gorgeous in that dress. I love anything pink so any excuse and I’m wearing it! Such a great post to raise awareness too. I get my partner to regularly check, as he is way more likely to pick up on abnormalities than I am!

Katie <3

    Brittany · 10/22/2014 at 9:03 am

    Thanks Katie! That is a really good idea to have your partner check!

redheadloves · 10/22/2014 at 10:01 am

Good reminder for self checks regularly! We all need the nudge!

    Brittany · 10/22/2014 at 10:05 am

    Thanks! I’m definitely team save the tatas!

Lindsay · 10/22/2014 at 12:43 pm

I really like that shape of that dress! It would be perfect to wear to work 🙂
