Fancy Feet

One of the perks of BlissDom'09 that I haven't told you about is some of the fabulous swag that we got. With sponsors like Disney, Little Debbie, and Lands End, I knew it'd be good.

One of the surprises in our swag bag was a Crocs gift certificate.

My first exposure to Crocs was in 2004, in California, where my dear friend Melissa sported the original classic in orange. Melissa is one of the coolest people I've ever known, and therefore, Crocs were cool, in my book.

I balked at the price tag, though, and never gave in to the hype.

Then, this past Christmas, I received these Mammoths as a gift.

Love. Them.

So, when I saw the gift certificate for $50 worth of Crocs merchandise in my BlissDom swag bag, you better believe I booked it to their website to pick me out a new pair.

Okay, I didn't exactly "book it." I waited a couple weeks until I stumbled across the paper in the bottom of my day timer.

But still.

Look what my swollen, pregnancy-ballooned tootsies will be sporting this summer:

How cute are those? And seriously, if you, too, are still holding out on your first pair of Crocs, let me tell you, they are as comfy as you've probably heard, and, I'm now convinced, worth the money. (PS -- the Mammoths are on sale right now. All you northerners, rumor has it more snow is on the way this weekend, so now is your chance to snatch up a pair!)

I'm an avowed non-Crocs kind of girl....but I definitely agree that those flip flops are cute. And very perfect for swollen summer pregnancy feet.
