“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 have never been much of a drinker. Mainly because I can’t stomach the smell or taste of alcohol. On the rare occasion that I actually have a drink, it is usually something that doesn’t taste like alcohol. I have seen mikes hard lemonade on the shelves many time. Like most every beverage I have tried, I can taste and not stomach the alcohol. I often look for ways to unwind after a long Mom day. Many have a glass of wine but I think a mike’s hard lemonade has become a nice way to unwind and have a #MyMikesMoment!

Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co., best recognized for its iconic mike’s® hard lemonade, is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary! They are also offering a limited edition pink lemonade seasonal flavor that’s on shelves now. I was actually pretty impressed with this. It tasted just like lemonade! That is possibly because mike’s uses real lemons – the whole lemon, including both the juice and the zest, to flavor its beverages resulting in the crispest, most refreshing taste around. If you are a baker.cook like me, you know how valuable the zest is.

Their pink lemonade starts out with a crisp, bright citrus notes and finishes tart and refreshing. Since 2009, mike’s hard lemonade has released its seasonal pink lemonade flavor each year in support of breast cancer awareness and has contributed more than $1 million to breast cancer research.

When you “drink pink,” you not only have a moment to savor for yourself, but you’ll be supporting a greater cause by helping to raise awareness for breast cancer. Send in your #MyMikesMoment, to your favorite social media outlet, and show your support. My Mikes Moment would definitely be relaxing on the front porch at night after all the kids are in bed. It doesn’t matter if it’s 10 outside, I have my trusty blanket all wrapped around me.

I used to love going shopping with my  Dad. It was always an experience. The most fun I had with him was when he was looking to buy a new truck. Car shopping was the best! He had the average Joe look about him so sales people always figure that he couldn’t afford what he was looking at. I didn’t understand why this entertained him, when I was a kid. As I got older, I began to see the humor in it. It was mostly about people judging him by how he looked.

I think the most fun I have ever had, while buying a new vehicle, was in 2002. I purchased an SUV off of Ebay. The dealer listed it very low thinking that there would be a bidding war and he would make a fortune. That didn’t happen. I remember sitting there, watching the minutes and seconds tick away. I just knew that someone was going to high bid at the last moment and win it out from under me. To my surprise, it didn’t happen! I picked up the SUV for a steal. It was located about 600 miles from where I live. When my Dad went to check it out, the guy actually tried to talk him out of buying it. We laughed about it for many years after.

So many parents work full time+ jobs these days. For many of them, finding quality with spend with the children can be difficult. I make every effort to spend time with my boys. I lost my Dad when I was 30 years old and I wish I was able to have more time with him. When I was a little girl, he was always working. He worked to provide for us and give us the things that he didn’t have when he was growing up. I think this is the way most parents are. I didn’t understand this when I was 10 but at 36 years old, I am grateful for all he did for us. I was definitely a Daddy’s Girl all the way! THe time a little girl spends with her Dad, is so important so make the most of all the time you can! It’s about the quality of time, not the quantity.
