Pool party fun with Dr Pepper!
We kicked off summer with an epic pool party. There’s nothing better than knowing you have absolutely nothing to do but relax and catch up with friends. It’s not often that we both have consecutive days off, so this weekend was extra special. Prepping for the party we headed to Walmart to get all of our pool party necessities. Obviously the first aisle I ran to was the soft drink aisle to snag my number 1 drink mixer in life: Dr Pepper.
I actually just recently found out there was a Walmart nearby and it has been a game changer. Amazing prices, open late, and it truly is a one stop shop. Be sure to keep an eye out June 15th at a Walmart near you for the unique Dr Pepper packaging that was designed by millennials, for millennials.
It’s crazy to think that since moving to Los Angeles we haven’t really had a ton of beach days! This past weekend definitely made up for all the beach days we have missed!
It was pretty overcast to start out but the sun eventually made its way to the beach. Our pot luck items were two cases of Dr Pepper (bottles and cans because YOLO) and my signature street corn salad. Which, unfortunately, was demolished right away hence, no photos. Recipe to come though I promise!
We made so many new friends this past weekend and I am so grateful for that! It’s tough moving to a new city and not knowing a whole lot of people to begin with. I truly believe great food, cold drinks and some sunshine bring people together. And obviously my Dr Pepper pool float. Which I almost sold to the highest bidder. I resisted though, it’s too cool!
Below I’ve made a list of some beach day must haves for any gathering!
Pool party must haves

As the sun set we took the party back to the apartment and you better believe we lugged our Dr Pepper pool float! Check out how to get your own Dr Pepper pool float below!
