Thriftilicious Thursday—I’ve Got a Crush on Crocs


I’m going to let you in on a little somethin’—I’ve got a crush.

No, not on a guy (*cough*Matt Damon*cough*), but on a sweet little crocodile.

If you would’ve told me a year ago I’d be pining after a pair of Crocs, I would’ve thrown back my head and laughed arrogantly. Me—wear garden clogs? Yeah, right… Aren’t nurses the only ones who wear those things?

Oh, me and my judgmental nature. How we are often forced to eat our words.

Of course I had never actually gone onto the Crocs Web site or even glanced at them in a store. I just thought they were all the same—therapeutic-looking rubber uglies.

And then there was Blissdom.

Crocs was one of the sponsors, and our swag bag included a gift certificate for our very own pair. So of course I couldn’t pass up FREE, and I checked out the site.

Yeah, that was when the crush starting kindling. The little crocodile made eyes at me as I began drooling over the cute styles for kids and the stylish options for women. Crocs made heels? Who knew? (Obviously not me.)

After agonizing over which pair to try, I finally settled on the Cyprus in black and silver. LOVE THEM. They are just as comfortable as they are sexy (even on this middle-aged mama), and I get compliments on them ALL THE TIME. And I get that same shocked reaction when I inform my complimenters that they are, indeed, Crocs.

So where am I going with all this on Thriftilicious Thursday? Well, I loyally stalk follow @GeorgeGSmithJr, the Crocs social media dude (I’m sure that’s not really his title but it sounds good) on Twitter, and I was sitting here minding my own business when I read his latest tweet:

Isn’t he cute? Oops, did I just say that out loud? (Oh, settle down. I’m happily married, not to mention the fact that I think he was still in diapers when I graduated from high school. 🙂

So of course I had to drop everything and go directly to crocs.com to check it out.

Seriously, how tempting is this? Buy 3 pairs, get 15% off, buy 4 and get 20% off, and buy 5 and save 25%! Let’s see, I could buy a pair for each of the boys . . .

OR I could buy 3 pairs for me . . .

That sly little Crocodile knows how to sweet-talk a lady.

Hurry to take advantage of this offer. (You know, you could even go together with 2 friends and each get a pair to get the discount. I’m just sayin’…) Offer ends 8/29!

  1. looked at the cyprus today, bought the Havana instead. Looking forward to strolling around St Louis in them tomorrow. Next time you're at Jordan Creek mall check out the Gretel. Super cute. I see 3 pair coming into this household very soon.

    I, too, am a Crocs convert…

  2. Man, what great deals! I didn't realize they had so many different styles now. I'm over there looking around to see what I could get for Christmas. Thanks for telling us about it!
