Girl Talk

Alright ladies, it's time for a good ole round of girl talk. For whatever reason I can't understand, my husband isn't always into all things Bachelorette and pineapple based alcoholic drinks. Weird I know.

Lets start with The Bachelorette. OMG. That's really all I have to say. Before I start chanting team Shawn and allow the tears to run down my face [that may have happened, I have a life. I know] let me just say that this dang show gets me every freaking time. I thought for sure Nick was in like Flynn because well, he was in if you know what I mean. But then, oh but then - at that magical moment when his limo showed up first I knew it was game over for him. The fist pounds erupted, the hands over the heart motion never stopped and all that is good in life came together at that very moment. Needless to say, Monday night was a wonderful night in my life. To celebrate such a momentous occasion, I had a few girls over to tune into the show with me and feast our mouths on all things necessary for a bachelorette finale party. Cheese and alcohol obvs.

And here is where my next bout' of due diligence happens as a female blogger. As you know, I am not opposed to alcohol. In fact, I might even venture to say I enjoy drinking it from time to time [gasp!] Recently I was at my local grocery store and laid my eyes upon this Palm Breeze stuff. And I thought "Pineapple Mandarin Orange?! AND Ruby Red Citrus?!? Mama can get down on this!!" Thankfully, my thoughts didn't let me down because believe me - mama can get down on this stuff. So much so that I haven't stopped drinking it from when I bought my first round in early June. Every week since I have picked up another round of each flavor every time I'm at the grocery store. Unfortunately [or fortunately] I can't choose my favorite flavor between the two so I keep having to buy both.

To sum it all up - Palm Breeze is a malt beverage [found mine in the beer aisle] that is targeted to women who enjoy spending time with their girlfriends, traveling, soaking up the sun, and loves to have fun. Fortunately I like all of the above so I feel like a gem of a gem drinking it. It has a nice little carbonation to it and the flavors are so perfectly Summer it's almost like I feel myself getting tanner just drinking it.

I love it so much I served it up earlier this Summer at my friends baby shower [which received rave reviews from the guests] and always have it in our cooler out on the boat.

I realize that I just got a little emotional and over the top talking about a drink but when you find something you love, you gotta shout it from the rooftops ya heard? And that concludes my love for all things Shawn and Palm Breeze.

What else can we talk about that our husbands don't care about? Write something below in the comments - it'll be a giant girl hangout session. Grab a drink and stay awhile, lets get this party started.

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.



  1. Team Shawn all the way!! Is proposal was so sweet and intimate, there was just 'too much' with Nick, it would have never worked!

  2. I love Palm Breeze too! I like the orange one. The alcohol content is sooo low though. Can't catch a buzz off of it. I didn't find it to be a malt bev. More like a flavored carbonated water. Very refreshing.

  3. Palm Breezes are the absolute best! I even found a Key Lime Cherry at Sam's Club that is equally as delicious as the other two.

    And yes, I was Team Shawn all the way. BUT, I did feel a little sad for Nick when she rejected him, but only a little.

  4. Oooh yum! I will have to look for these, thanks!!
    I kind of feel bad for Nick...then I don't...then I do!...because the same exact thing happened to him twice now :/
    But...Team Shawn!!
    Other topics?? Every minute detail of work gossip/drama. What color to paint my nails. Who's watching the train-wreck that is Bachelor in Paradise?!! ;)

  5. I was so glad she chose Shawn. My daughter wanted her to choose Nick and I'm worried I've failed in my parenting somehow.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
