It's no secret that I love smoothies. My smoothie obsession started when I got my first job the mall. We had a small cafe in my department. It was their that I had my first smoothie. No kidding. My parents were milkshake people and I can't ever remember having had a smoothie before then.
It was made with real peaches. And not the can kind either. Well, over the years I've tried a lot of different fruit smoothies. I was really excited when McDonald's announced that they were coming out with their own assortment of fruit smoothies and I think they've done a good job so far with the flavors:
Anyways, @McD_CLTArea contacted via Twitter to tell me about their Free Smoothies for a Month Contest. All I had to do was tweet out my fave McDonald's drink to get entered for a chance to win. Of course, my favorite drink is the Strawberry Fruitopia. I purchased a bottle from the grocery store but it just didn't taste the same. I don't know what syrup to carbonated ratio they use but if I could bottle it up I would.
I entered the contest not thinking that I would win. I've never had a lucky streak when it comes to contests. Sure, I've won a few but that's about it. Well, guess what? I won!!!! I'm super excited because as a smoothie junkie, I can finally quench my smoothie thirst. Plus, it'll give Moo and I something to look forward to everyday.
I can build mommy-daughter memories with her at our favorite fast food restaurant. McDonald's has been a part of her childhood since she was a baby. She had her first taste of french fries from McDonald's. She had her first serving of chicken nuggets from McDonald's. And she had her first spoon of ice cream with Grandma there.
I'm looking forward have this quality time with her minus her brother. For about twenty minutes everyday it'll be me and her sharing yummy smoothies and enjoying each other's company. And that is something good. Something great!
