Tips For The Perfect Pool Day
Before heading to my best friend’s place for our perfect pool day I made a stop at Walmart and picked up some essentials for the day. I love that Walmart has literally everything to make our day at the pool perfect! Now to share my tips to achieve The Perfect Pool Day!
Snacks – Look, when we head to the pool we do not want to have to go back home to get lunch or snacks so it is important to bring great pool day snacks. My best friend made us a nice light cucumber, tomato and mozzarella salad. It was a great cool salad for the 95 degree weather! Ugh! Too hot for me!
Sunglasses and Floppy Hat – Again, Walmart for the win. I have very sensitive skin and eyes which means a day the pool is a day that I must have my head and eyes covered. As I was packing up my bag I totally forgot to throw in my hat and sunglasses. Thankfully I found a really cute pair during my shopping trip and added a new floppy hat to my collection as well! Two items you can never have enough of…sunglasses and floppy hats!
Both Lauren and I love the Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino® Coffee Drinks so I immediately went to the coffee drink aisle in Walmart. I picked up our usual favorite, Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino Vanilla but then I saw it…the new Starbucks® Bottled Dulce de Leche Frappuccino® Coffee Drink 13.7 oz Single Serve item only (not available in 4-pack)! I texted Lauren and told her that I would be bringing her a new treat to try and I am so glad I did.

I don't personally own a pool, but I do know people who do and I might be invited to swim in theirs. Food/snacks are important. My skin is very pale and I have sensitive eyes as well, so I have to be very careful how much I'm exposed to the sun. Agreed-95 degrees is too hot! Thank you for sharing these tips!

I definitely need a floppy hat this summer. This is something I hardly purchase during the warmer seasons but I love the look of them. It's best to have it in the pool for extra protection!
OMG I love those drink holders. And I also take my coffee to the pool. It is refreshing and delicious. I need to get some pool accesories such as your hat and off course now I want to read all the gossip magazines. You got me summer ready.

We opt for the creek instead of the pool. These tips will work perfectly for either destination. I miss the days when I could sit with my feet in the water and read. My little guy keeps me too busy (and wet) to do that much anymore at the creek.
95 degrees?! Ugh, wayyyyy too hot for me. It looks like a nice pool day. Just add a lot of high SPF sun lotion and count me in. haha. I do wish that Starbucks would come out with dairy free frapacchinos!
I love the starbucks frapps! I think its the perfect drink to have by the pool. Loved you put it in a little floatie!

I love that your perfect day was with your BFF. My pool days all seem to revolve around the kids too. We don't have a pool either so we usually head to the waterpark which is total chaos. I think I need to plan myself a nice relaxing pool day just like yours.

That's so cool that you and your BFF are now living in the same state. It's always good to have close friends so nearby. As for the lack of being able to tan, I totally sympathize. There are certain areas of my body that refuse to tan at all costs. Ah whatever. lol Glad you had a great pool day.

I too LOVE the gossip and style mags. I always find myself reading them in line at the grocery store.
Love me some Starbucks bottled frapps! What a perfect drink by the pool!

Awww .. your photos of you and your bestie made me smile! The pool is truly one of life's greatest pleasures. Every day around the lunch hour I go water-walking with the old(er) ladies. While we're doing laps in the lazy river they tell me the funniest stories and I always leave with the biggest smile and a heart that's a little lighter. (ps: you reminded me that I need a big floppy hat!)
