It’s Summer break in our house, the kids are finally off school and it’s time to cool down and have some fun with all our free time. Of course, that’s not really the case for me, because mom still has to work and the breaks come a lot less frequently. This means I have to carve out some time every day for the kids, and on the weekends we enjoy going to the pool, having a game or movie night and just spending time together. It’s all about family for us and with the Nationwide Share a Coke event coming to a Walmart near you, you can celebrate your family, friends, any loved one you want. We also made these Super Simple Ice Cream Coke Floats to enjoy!
We couldn’t wait to head to Walmart to find the new 20oz bottles. We found them located at the front of the store, literally next to and outside of the cash registers in the refrigerator cases. We grabbed quite a few of them, not just to drink but also to make our Super Simple Ice Cream Coke Floats.
I was even MORE excited when the first bottle we saw, said Nicole. See it up there on the far left of the second door? Yep. I was pretty excited.
Then we found a Ryan, Vanessa, Jess and Mel (Melissa’s nickname). The only one we couldn’t find was Brielle and that’s just because her name is so different and unique (and she’s so totally used to it) so she settled for one that said “Share a Coke with a Friend” and was just as happy. She said it’s because it’s coke. And she was drinking the coke and not consuming the bottle, which is pretty much true. It’s Coke. What’s not to love and be happy about.
So anyway, I was telling you about this Nationwide Share a Coke event. It’s all happening July 6, 2014 at Walmart stores. You can find out if a store near you is hosting, by checking out where there are Share a Coke Events.
We’re planning on attending at our local store, because who better to Share a Coke with, but your own family. You totally should too. Grab someone you care about and go to Walmart on July 6 and Share a Coke with your loved one!
