Impromptu Beach Picnic
Because, Why Not?!
We live an hour away from one of the prettiest beaches, and we’ve been making a real effort to get our toes in the sand more often this year. There have been summers where we haven’t gone to the beach even ONCE. Which truly is a crime. Like, how does that even happen?!
So this year we’ve been taking the beach seriously! Personally I love going to the beach super early in the morning or at sunset; the midday beach is just not my favorite, especially in July. But, seriously, you cannot beat the beach at golden hour–plus it makes for a good excuse for a picnic!
A few weeks ago, on a whim, we decided to head out to the beach for dinner. We’d been in the house all day doing various chores, and I was ready for some sunshine! I threw the beach idea out to Ryan, and he was instantly on board and said “order the snacks!” – so that’s exactly what I did.
I’ve been really utilizing my Walmart+ membership, especially this summer!
It’s fast, super easy, and convenient! I was able to quickly put in an order for a few of our favorite beach snacks: watermelon, Topo Chico, grapes, chips, etc., and it was at our front door within 2 hours!
If you are unfamiliar, Walmart+ is a new kind of membership at $98 per year, or $12.95 per month, and it truly will revolutionize the way you shop in store, online, for groceries, and more!
I love utilizing this membership to scoop up those items I need quickly that may take a little longer to arrive; if you are in a SUPER rush, you can also use the mobile Scan & Go benefit through Walmart+ and checkout while you shop in store, which is awesome when you are trying to get to the beach before sunset!!
Also, while you are at the store grabbing those last minute items, you can save 5¢ on gas, which is a total win. Try it out! I promise you’ll love it.
Truly, it’s those little things that just make a spontaneous date night all the more fun. All I had to do was throw on my suit, and my favorite new overalls, and go because I knew the snacks were on their way! We had the absolute best time and made memories I’ll never forget – I’ll definitely be framing this photo below. Such a sweet night.
