Usually when Bree (Work Clothes I Suppose) posts her Third Thursday Threads theme, I always forget about linking up, but this week was one I couldn't forget. This weeks theme was pink for breast cancer awareness month.

3 1/2 years ago my mom found a lump in her breast. She got it checked out immediately and it was stage 1 breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy and then radiation. Since then, she is 3 1/2 years CANCER FREE! We are so blessed to say that my mom is a survivor! So ladies (men too!)... make sure you are doing SELF CHECKS and getting mammograms! It's SO important.

  2. Love this. Thankfully I've never had to go through anything scary like this!

    I love your little fishtail! Also- I just downloaded the Cartwheel ap. Any tips for maximizing that??
