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.
I live on a lake now. It’s a big deal to me, because even when the day is a bit on the crappy side; ‘going to the lake’ means walking out my back door. I am almost fairly certain that relaxing and watching swans hang out and watching fish jump up while I have a drink and a snack will never, ever get old. Yesterday I swung by Circle K and picked up some mike’s ® hard pink lemonade and fixin’s to make some snack mix, then kicked it on the back porch for a while.
You have to grab these moments to just relax. It’s a hard lesson and one that I learn, and forget, and learn, and forget again. Moms always get the job of running around, keeping all of the parts moving, getting everyone where they need to be – with the various papers, sack lunches, appropriate footwear, and sports gear that our families need for all of their activities. Sometimes we all just need to have a few moments just to relax and recharge. May I suggest a refreshing beverage?
Every year since 2009 mike’s ® releases its seasonal pink lemonade and it’s a good reminder to just take a few minutes for yourself and slow down. The pink lemonade flavor is only available for a short while, and is part of a continuing effort to support the Breast Cancer Research Fund. They have already donated over a million dollars to the fund; and I have personally benefited from breast cancer research as have many of you. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month so it’s a win win; a relaxing moment for you and awareness raised for this important cause.
The lemonade itself is sort of sweet and tart at the same time; and goes great with a salty crunchy snack mix.
They use real lemons – but I am not entirely certain how they make them pink. I am certain that they make them tasty. We all need to take a little break once in a while. Join me and the other folks who are enjoying #mymikesmoment by following along on Facebook and Twitter!
