This is definitely the way I would do it, but I'd go with a Bluetooth Low Energy version of the HC-06. There are variants, but HM-10 is a good starting search term for a lower power drop-in hardware replacement for an HC-06. Start with the HC-06, get familiar with the hardware/software, then switch to using the BLE version and figure out the differences in usage.

The bluetooth radio is going to be your biggest power draw, hands down, so you should definitely consider the BLE version.

PIC is a really good idea, you can get nA sleep currents out of them if you pick the right chip and know what you're doing (read the datasheets).
