I love the color pink. I always have. But there was a time that I got teased, a lot!, for liking and wearing pink. So I stopped. But a few years ago, I decided that yes, I like pink and that's okay. When I am wearing pink, I feel pretty and feminine, even when I am 9 months pregnant! This picture was taken 1 1/2 weeks before k was born.

One year, as I was putting up my Christmas tree, I was in tears. The tree was a hand-me-down and so straggly and ugly. So for my birthday, Tom bought me a new, full tree and told me to go buy decorations for it. I found the most elegant pink ball ornaments and it blossomed from there. Come over at Christmas time and you will see what I mean. I love my pink decorations!

My family and friends have all gotten in on the act. They all know how much I love pink, and they help me embrace it. Because my birthday is just before Christmas (December 19th), my dad, every year, has bought me a poinsettia. Well, he has even started buying me pink poinsettias. They are so pretty. These are my birthday presents from last year. Notice how much pink there is! I even received a pink cutting board and paring knife!

So of course I was thrilled to finally have a girl and see some pink in the laundry! And k is such a girly girl too. She loves to wear pink and dress up as a princess. I have multiple pictures of her in her pink outfits, far too many to post here. Come on over and I would love to show them all to you! For a long time, that was the only color she owned. I still prefer her in pink, but I now have her in a few other colors, too.

For Halloween, I made her a SuperGirl costume, pink of course! It was so much fun, and she absolutely adored it!
So yes, I love pink. And I love being a girl.

Pink is great! I would have to agree.

It will be a long time before there is any pink in my laundry... unless of course I accidentally slip a red item into the whites! I've never seen a pink decorated Christmas tree, but I think it's a great idea. After having Carter, I'm in love with baby blue.Last year I tried to talk Scott into a baby blue and brown themed Christmas, he vetoed it, but maybe I'll have to do it anyway...
