I am sure it has not been unnoticed by you.  It is Pinktober, breast cancer awareness month.  Yes, I have become all to aware of breast cancer.  I finished up my 28 radiation treatments last Friday.  I am, to say the least, quite crispy.  It is like getting a sunburn on top of a sunburn, on top of a sunburn, well you get the idea.  I was told that this week and the next will yield the final results of my radiation (peeling, blistering, and possibly opening and draining).  Not my idea of fun.  So far, I have just peeled and am walking around with my hand on my hip to keep my arm from rubbing too much.  Let me just say ouch!!  But hey, at least I am still around.  If that is all I can complain about, I am lucky. 

Being Pinktober, you cannot go anywhere without seeing the pink ribbon on everything.  Pink is everywhere!  In honor to bring breast cancer awareness to you, I couldn't resist grabbing this pink wig from the Halloween section.

After reading this, I want all you gals to check yourself.  It is Pinktober after all! 


  1. You are adorable. I am glad you are ready to heal now it sounds. Love the wig..and good reminder!

  2. I'm glad to see you are hanging in there and still have a sense of humor :o) Your pink wig is sooooo cute too! Praying this is the last of your treatments!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Done! One self-check coming up! So glad to SEE you! I think maybe I also need a pink pageboy 'cuz you look adorable in yours!

  4. I love seeing the NFL getting behind the cause. There is pink everywhere on every game, love it. The pink wig is fun! I hope the healing starts soon, doesn't sound like fun, hang in there!
