Ahhh.. comfort for my feet from Sanuk

Who knew flip flops could be so comfortable?  Sanuk really outdid themselves because these are amazing!


Thanks to Sanuk, my feet are now living in comfort and it is amazing! 

Here’s my story:

At the beginning of summer, I made a mistake and stocked up on cheap flip flops.  You know, the ones you can buy for a dollar.  They’re great for keeping a spare in the car, wearing to play in the dirt, etc.  But they’re not great for your feet.  A month into summer, I was regretting the decision to go cheap instead of quality.  My feet ached daily from the moment I woke up.  It was horrible.  I just wanted to sit down and prop my feet up all day long.

One day when we were visiting our local Scheels (one my sons’ favorite places), I wandered over to the shoe section and saw a few styles of Sanuk sandals that looked amazingly comfortable.  They were made of yoga mat material…yes, I’m serious!  I knew I had to try them for the sake of my feet and I’m so glad I did!


Comfort and style in one.. Sanuk is more than just surfer wear!


I have been wearing my Sanuk flip flops almost every day for 2 months now. Within a week I could tell a huge difference.  My feet were no longer achey when I woke up.  Thank goodness!  While I primarily wear my Yoga Mat flip flops, I like to alternate occasionally with my Yoga Chakra pair, especially after a rainy day.  Because of the tiny air pockets that allow the squish, the Yoga Mat style soak up water.  Even after just running through the rain to take my son from the car to the preschool door, they retained my foot’s impression for the rest of the day and were less comfortable as they did not squish the same.  Once they dried out, they were like new again!


Kids need comfortable footwear too - check out these bright and SQUISHY flip flops.. my 4 year old wears them every day!


Sanuk has so many more styles available than just these two.  They also have kid styles!  My son was pretty excited to see the blue/green/black Rootbeer Cozy Lite set in his size.  Unfortunately the sizes didn’t go small enough for my 2 year old’s tiny feet, but I think I was the only one who cared – it’s just so much fun dressing them to match :)  Although the foot bed feels a little different, maybe a bit more durable, it is also made of yoga mat.  It is wonderful knowing he is comfortable just like momma.

So I know as I write this, it’s the end of summer and you probably aren’t thinking ahead for next summer, but you really should!  When summer ends, the best summer apparel and footwear sales come around.  And I guarantee you that comfort will not be out of style next year!  And take a look around while you’re at it – they have boots, slippers, and other shoes as well.

Everyone loves drones! Find the Solo 3DR at Best Buy!



If there’s one new device the men in my life all seem to love (including my toddlers!), it’s drones!  The little remote control quadcopters come in all shapes and sizes, with housings that make them look like helicopters, planes, or any number of special characters.  But not all drones are created equal.  My husband’s uncle has some so small, the wind easily carries them away.  There are some so large, you’d think you need a pilot’s license!  But the most fun ones, in my opinion, are the ones that let you capture pictures and videos from the air.

The new Solo by 3DR has all the best features packed in one, easy to use device!  Available in over 400 Best Buy stores starting in June, it’s the perfect high end gift for that special dad in your life.  You won’t have to worry about this drone flying away with the wind, or crashing it violently into the ground, because the Solo is able to define its own flight path and correct for environmental factors.  You can attach a GoPro camera, then view and control it wirelessly to capture the perfect shots!  Use it for fun and photography, for planning and monitoring a farm, or taking aerial photos for family and friends, or even as a business!




The controller includes an HDMI port and controls specifically for the GoPro, alongside the drone controls, to deliver maximum ease of use.  The video can even be broadcast live!  And with two integrated Linux computers controlling flight, there’s plenty of power for quick movements, and possibilities for future upgrades to keep your drone going into the future.

So head on over to Best Buy to check out their selection of the most popular drones, including the Solo!  Buy before 7/11 to get a free Solo Smart battery with your purchase of the 3DR Solo Drone.
