Taking Time for Myself #MymikesMoment #MC #Sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for mike’s hard lemonade. I received a Circle K gift card to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Mom time around these parts is few and far between.  Our schedules make it difficult for either Jason nor I to get much time for ourselves.  Our family is always on the run, always moving.  My weekends are booked from here until probably death.  There are those moments though where I get a second to enjoy myself.  Where I am the focus and it really is my time.  Cooking dinner or driving home from work with the music blaring are those times each day that I get a moment to slow down and breathe.

Since I was of age to drink I have always enjoyed mike's hard lemonade.  It is one of my go to drinks because it is crisp, refreshing, light and the taste is smooth.  I will tell you that it is not my most favorite of the flavors that mike's has to offer though.  I am particularly in love with the mike's hard pink lemonade.  It is my mom and I's favorite flavor and is only featured seasonally!  In fact when I told her I got selected to work with mike's she was more excited than I was. 

I really enjoy mike's hard pink lemonade, not only for the taste and quality product, but for their continued support of breast cancer awareness.  I love to "Drink Pink" and know that when I am enjoying time to myself I am also helping contribute a little to breast cancer research.  Since 2009 mike's has donated over $1 million dollars to fund research and that is awesome. 

I am always running around and it can be difficult to take time for myself and to remember to grab something for me. Most of the time I just swing by my local Circle K and pick up some of my favorites.  Circle K is convenient and always a clean, well-stocked store with friendly associates.  I always grab my mike's along with some of my favorite snacks for both me and the kids (oh and sometimes the husband too)!  Luckily I snagged some pink lemonade this week too, while it is still in season from now until sometime in October.

For me it is important to Drink Pink and really support breast cancer research.  I lost one of the most special people to my mom, myself and Jen.  Jen's mother, Nancy died of breast cancer and it was a tough fought battle.  She gave it her all and although she lost her battle she left us all with memories and love and determination to be better people and do better things.  I miss her daily and I KNOW that Jen misses her like crazy.  Nancy and my mom used to enjoy mike's hard pink lemonade together.

I hope you join me this month and DRINK PINK with mike's hard pink lemonade.  Also please check them out on twitter, Facebook and their website for more information. 


Disclosure:  I was sent a gift card to Circle K to purchase mike's hard lemonade, however, my opinions are my own and I do actually love this delicious malt beverage.
