This Foodie Hits Florida!

The holidays for my hubby and I were spent in Bonita Springs, Florida with my parents. They live in a super-cool community my brother likes to teasingly call “The Gated Community Within a Gated Community.” It is safe, I will say that. Except for the crocodile¬†that hangs out in the pond just half a block away. And a landscaper was chased UP a tree by a croc last year here! Safe? Or not?

It snowed in Naples, Florida after our first dinner out!

When we arrived I was happy to see Dad in his NEW pair of Athens. He sheepishly asked me last month if I could get him a pair. Uhhhh, yes! I am a Crocs Ambassador!

Dad's Faves. And mine, too! They were the first Crocs I ever owned!

The weather was less than Florida-like this whole week. That means movie theatres and restaurants were our favorite haunts with Mom and Dad. We saw ‘Black Swan’ and ‘The King’s Speech.’ We ate at Roy’s, Campiello, Fleming’s Steakhouse and more! I even talked Mom in to having stone crab claws at the house twice. My favorite!

Amazing prices on gorgeous flowers!

Mom took me to a farmer’s market on Thursday while the men golfed. The produce was unreal. It made me miss the wonderful fresh fruit and veggies in the Chicago summer times. And the flowers at this market were UNREAL. So vibrant!

What did you do for the holidays? And what was YOUR favorite food item this past week?

Stone Crab Claws! "Crack 'em, please!"

Holiday Shopping- what’s your pick?

Tomorrow is the first day of December and that means the holidays are upon us! For those celebrating Hanukkah, your eight days of lights begins this week. If you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa or maybe even Festivus, then you’ve got a little more time to get in some shopping.

In the past few days, Crocs helped shoppers out in a big way by providing huge markdowns and savings on shoes both in stores and online. Black Friday this year found shoppers not only scouring the malls for huge deals at early hours, but also looking for those same sales online. Crocs had a buy one, get one 50% sale for Black Friday and rumor has it that our customers were stocking up not only on shoes for the holidays but well into next year.

Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday followed a more “traditional” route with online sales available to anyone with a keyboard and a mouse. Surely there is something for everyone online at Crocs, right? Have you done your holiday shopping? What’s on your list?

Fear not, if you haven’t finished your shopping, there are plenty of deals left to be had. Sign up for our newsletters and be the first to know when the new deals become available. Mobile user? Sign up for December Deals of the Day by texting “DEALS” to 27627.

(Oh, and for all you cat herder’s out there, happy Cat Herder’s Day to you- December 15th.)
