Lee National Denim Day, And A Giveaway


Congratulations to EG at Stuff Growing, Holly C., Nashville blogger Jessica from The Parsonage Family, Outnumbered Mama, and Sarah Hirsch! You each won a pair of I don’t really know anyone whose life hasn’t been touched by breast cancer, whether it’s your mother, your sister, a cousin, or a dear friend or co-worker or even yourself. It has touched my family the past few years with my own mother-in-law, and just recently my best friend’s family, whose sister-in-law was just diagnosed. I’ve had that terrifying moment where I found a small lump in my own breast (and I was so relieved to know I was fine a few biopsies and an MRI later but it was a long, stressful process.)


Lee National Denim Day is coming up in three weeks on October 8 and it’s a great way to rally together with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family to raise money for breast cancer research and show your support.


Where are your donations going? Your money will help researchers at institutions across the nation (including Vanderbilt University here in Nashville) as well as help provide community and support for cancer patients through organizations such as The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club.


Visit the Lee National Denim Day website to find out more details and how you can register a team.



Speaking of jeans, I’m giving away five pairs of Lee’s Slender Secret Keller Jeans. I have different three pairs of Slender Secret line jeans and they are fantastic! Just leave a comment about how breast cancer has affected your life. For an extra comment, I’d love it if you’d “like” the new Blonde Mom Blog Facebook page, but please leave an extra comment here if you do. I’ll draw five winners’ names at random from all eligible comments left by midnight CST Thursday, September 23.
