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.

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.
