What Makes Summer "All Good" For You? WIN $100 for Pinning w/ The McCain All Good Pinathon


Ahhh! I can almost picture it. Gentle breeze blowing through my hair as the waves wash over my feet at the beach. Feeling the sand between my toes, and listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore (drowned out by the boisterous cries of glee from my four year old as she makes and destroys a sand castle).  Those are but a few things that make me smile when I think of Summer.


Those last few days of school are within reach and the feeling of freedom and celebration of Summer are almost within grasp.  There's also nothing like going for an ice cream cone on a hot Summer day and just "being".  No worries in the world.  Just good times.  Ice cream and the beach?  It's "All Good"!


Some other things I love the most about Summer is the fact that we can get delicious fresh produce from our gardens and farmers' markets!  Picnics, BBQs, trips to the beach, and just lounging around the patio with family and friends for a meal are all part of what makes Summer so special to me.

FAMILY. FRIENDS. FUN. FOOD.  

Yep! That's what Summer means to me.  That's what makes Summer "All Good" for me!

McCain wants to know some of what makes Summer "All Good" for you too!  



The McCain All Good Pinathon

To find out what makes Summer all good for you, McCain is hosting an All Good Pinathon and awarding $100 each to 5 pinners whose boards make them "laugh, cry, or do a conga line around the office!" For full criteria, please see rules and regulations below. Entering is fun and easy:
  1. Create a board on Pinterest and name it “McCain All Good Pinathon.”
  2. Pin the things that make summer all good for you. For example: a perfectly ripe peach, the smell of grass, a picnic with friends
  3. Include one pin from McCain that makes you feel happy.
  4. Tag each pin in your board with the keyword McCainAllGood and you’re good to go! So good luck!

This is great for all those who love Pinterest and love Pinning!  I'm a self-professed Pinterest addict.  I can get lost for hours Pinning recipes, DIY ideas, crafts, items for my Dream House, and more!

The contest goes from June 13th to July 11th.  You can win 1 of 5 $100 Gift Cards! C'mon...Go ahead and Pin! You know you wanna!

Here are some of things that make Summer "All Good" for me!
