For the love of PINK!!

Hi Friends,

Our fabulous hostess Beverly at http://howsweetthesound has done another great job putting Pink Saturday together. Thank you Bev!! Please stop by & visit her and all the PINK posts. :) It's a wonderful tour!

I prepared this post in advance due to Hurricane Ike, so I really wrote this post Wednesday evening. I hope everyone who is in the path of this storm is safe & sound.

I started digging around for hurricane stuff like flashlights, batteries, a row boat.... a and look what I found hiding in my linen closet? A pillowcase my mother in law gave me a few years ago, not only is it in the PINK family but it has my name embroidered on it ( in PINK ).....Oh, how I love embroidery. :)

Another special PINK item is Phyllis. She is my little stuffed cat that was given to me when I was 6 years old when I had the chicken pox. This makes her about 28 years old.....isn't she cute? I am so glad I still have her.

Just for a little added fun today, one of my all time favorite movies is " Pretty in Pink". Really, I just love the part where 'Duckie' does a lip sync & little dance to " Try a little Tenderness". You can listen to Otis sing this GREAT song on my playlist.....if you haven't seen this part of the movie, its darling. :)

Wishing all of you a Happy Pink Saturday and a great weekend!

NOTE: We are in the line to get a direct hit from Hurricane Ike~ we may loose power. So if it takes a bit for me to visit you, please understand and I will see you soon. :)
Be safe.

Hugs~ J.

I think it is precious that you still have your cute little stuffed kitten. I also think "Pretty in Pink" was a great movie. I am praying for all of you in the path of the storm. Stay safe!

I pray that he makes a detour around your little corner of the world. Take care and be safe. We totally understand if you're not back on for awhile. I love the pillowcase and Phyllis! What treasures! Believe it or not I've never seen Pretty in Pink. The kids have and liked it. I might have to borrow Brianna's copy and watch it!

Katie said...

Take cover, take care! Incessant prayers are lifted today for all of you in the path of Ike. Let us know as soon as you can and Happy Pink Saturday!

Hello Jessica, I love that PINK pillowcase. It is so beautiful. Ms Phyllis your cute little stuffed cat is so cute and so nice you still have it!

I pray you are safe and sound - all your pinks are lovely this week. Happy Pink Saturday.

Susan Hickam said...

I hope you all are safe and sound! I love pretty in pink too but I haven't seen it in years. I always thought she chose the wrong guy. Duckie was far more interesting.

That is the sweetest pink post I have seen. What a wonderful story about your lovy pink kitty. Thank you for sharing. hugs, Ellen

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Jessica. I hope you are all safe and sound after the storm.

I love your embroidered pillowcase. Such a special gift - just for you. Now you need to put it on your pillow and snuggle with Phyllis. ;-)

Just wanted to share that the following that was shared with me

Jessica is safe but she is going through withdrawal as she has no power, thus no computer or internet

Jessica, we will all be praying your power is restored soon. We miss you!

Happy PS a little late! I especially love that little pink kitty!

Glad Ike has passed us now ~ did you have any damage? We were fine, just rains.

Big TX Hugs,

Hey Jessica... Oh, I hope you and your family are doing okay. I am not sure exactly where you live, but I hope and pray everything is okay with y'all. BTW... I love all of your pinks and I loved that movie Pretty in Pink too! God Bless you girl!

Received an update on Jessica

She hopes to have power soon. Where she works has power now. Her phone is working off and on. She hopes to be back on the internet soon!

We miss you Jessica!
