My whole life I’ve been one of those people that is constantly asking “omg how is it already (*insert month here*)”!?But since I graduated college and got into the swing of a full-time job, I really do feel like time has been moving extra fast.It seems like just last week I was bundled up in a big coat, wishing for the warm weather, and now it’s already July and summer is fully here.
I was recently thinking about how just a few years ago, summer meant so much more than warm weather. It meant a complete break, time to actually ENJOY the warm weather with my friends and have fun every day of the week…even on a Monday.So when I was recently asked by Dr Pepper to showcase how I like to have fun in the summertime, I thought back to a few years ago when I was always taking advantage of it.Two things immediately came to mind:
- Hanging out with my friends
- Having a pool day
Although I am no longer able to enjoy those things at any given moment like I used to, I realized that before I know it the leaves will be falling off the trees and then I’ll be back in my winter coat, wishing for summer again.So with the help of Dr Pepper I decided to stop letting summer slip by and throw a pool party.After all what could be better than sunshine, relaxation, and connecting with friends?
For any great pool party, or any party at all for that matter, it’s always important to have some snacks and drinks on hand.Chips and salsa are always a go-to snack that everyone seems to love, and Dr Pepper makes for the perfect drink.
Dr Pepper has recently come out with new unique “Pick Your Pepper” packaging that is available for purchase at Walmart!It was designed by millennials, for millennials, and I love how fun and individualized it is.The cherry on top is that they are also giving away PRIZES when you buy it!That’s right…buy some Dr Pepper like you would anyways but now you get a prize for it.All the prizes sound so fun and would make the perfect addition to any summertime pool party.I know that the unicorn beverage holder inflatable and the Dr Pepper bottle shaped pool float were a hit at my pool party but there are even more prizes that you could get!You can check out more information about the prizes here but here are the basics:
When you buy Dr Pepper at Walmart from now until 8/15 this summer, you can upload your receipt here to get the prizes featured in this post, as well as these other prizes:
- Spend $5, get a unicorn beverage holder inflatable
- Spend $10, get a Walmart e-Gift Card worth $5
- Spend $20, get a 6-pack can/bottle holder with ice pack

So basically the moral of this story is that if you’re like me, enjoying summer from an office building on most days, make sure to take advantage of the weekends left with this amazing weather, get all your friends together, and throw an awesome outdoor bash!
